AGH. I can't decide! I'm still at the start of my BJD collecting, with my second BJD expected to arrive next week - with a blank face. I got a company faceup for my first BJD, but I think I'm going to send both my first and second dolls to the same artist so they can "match". That's not to say I want them to have the exact same faceup, there would be differences to suit their differing characters. But I want them, as sisters, to have the same style. In fact, I would like all the dolls in my eventual collection to have a very similar feeling of faceup and style, since they're all part of the same world! But the question is - which style? I am torn between the style Maskcat uses - a very austere melancholic sort of natural - versus the dreamy soft Volks style of 'natural'. I have a Maskcat doll ordered, but I've become increasingly obsessed with Volks, and want to get atleast two, if not four... or five... or more Volks girls in the future. But if I decide to go for one style over the other with the first two girls, that will set the tone of my whole collection! Smooth vs textured! Gloss vs matte! What placement for the blush? Some small variance would be fine, but if one faceup was ultra matte and the other was ultra glossy, it would not work with my vision. But maybe I'm just more excruciatingly particular than the average BJD owner? How important is it for you that your collection have the same feeling in face-up and style? If you do have a specific style you maintain throughout your collection, how would you describe it?
