I'm still new in this hobby; but, this is a question I've been asking myself from the beginning: Basic or Full set For me, I really would prefer basics. I want to draw the characters from the doll naturally as I play with the "raw" head mold. Now I'd like look for slight modding and hybrids so I could have the right proportion too. Then from the face I could get to the styles and make my own cloth. I don't think I'll go for a fullset. Starting from the basics can really free the imaginations and styles about my dolls. Yes, they are my dolls, so at least for most of the part, I want to see myself in them. I think Volks are really smart. For their basic molds they never have too much. No wonderful backgrounds or fancy customs and plus a little neutral face ups. In this way I could really see the further possibilities of making the doll my doll. (But I really don't like the way they realize so much fantastic molds as limited edition ) So when it comes to full set, what I really want to ask is Have you ever found a full set edition doll that is just exactly what you want? Including the make up, the cloth and everything? Are you satisfy with just the default makeup and cloth and wigs in the promo picture? Even with full set cloths (such as the wonderful dollheart), do you put the whole set on? or there is always some of the parts you just own touch at all (like the hats or coats)? I really think we should have splits for full set clothes too! I really searched for something similar, not maybe my research skill isn't really good. So remove it if there has already a discussion like this one.
