Is this weird? As I've been looking through bjd's and company's websites sometimes when I'm not sure about a doll I like to do an image search for the one I'm interested in. I'm mainly looking for non- company made face ups. I just so happen to find a Ringdoll Lucifer named Crispin by Loo.Luisa while looking for another doll. And I absolutely love him. His face, his demeanor and his character has me fascinated and smitten. As I'm waiting for my own doll (a picture of whom sits on my desk that I enjoy looking at from time to time) I find myself intermittently looking for his pictures on line and always looking forward to posts of him on IG. I have to admit I really want a Lucifer doll because of him. Although I also really want a Dracula doll because his face is mesmerizing. (Omg those lips) However, I find that because Crispin appeals to my so much I don't know if I could ever purchase a Lucifer because in my mind he's perfect as Crispin. Plus I find it's a bit taboo to recreate another collector's doll. Isn't it? To add on to that, he's not my aesthetic honestly. I would never think to create something like that but there is something soo endearing about him that I constantly gravitate towards him. I find his questioning eyes adorable. I admit that for many dolls it's rare to find a character's style that I didn't want to change. The face(up) could be beautiful but then who is he? And that's what's interesting, I love his character most of all. I even hope to get bj hands for my own dolls because there's so much life that can be expressed through his little hands (whose blushing is peeling but those are just signs of how loved he is and it's a beautiful thing to see). If I had the opportunity to own him I would feel privileged. So If you love a doll but it's because of how someone else created him is it worth purchasing the doll? Or do you simply just adore them from afar. Have you ever worried whether or not you can create/ own a doll you'll love as much as somebody else's creation? How do you see past someone else's creations and see them for their sculptural potential and who they/ you want them to be to you? Thanks for reading.
