I know there's another old post about if people take their dolls out, but thought I can start a new one with a slightly different topic. I'm curious how does everyone feel about taking your dolls to the public? I'm based in CA, USA. I used to take my dolls out all the time, like even just to eat out in a restaurant sometimes I will take them. Travel, going to school (one time only, I was too nervous about classmates touching them lol,) or just general going out. Or sometimes I will plan special days to just do outdoor photo shoot for them, in a garden, in the mountain... etc. And people stare all the time lol At where I hang around people usually don't ask questions (just give very uncomfortable stares lol) I learned to ignore their ardent stares and just moving on, but wondering how do everybody else feel about it? Do you feel comfortable taking your dolls out with you? Or are you too nervous about the "silent judgement"?
