I'm extremely new to the hobby, but I've become obsessed with BJD's and am eager to get my first one! I had always seen them online (and I'l be honest I did think they were a little odd at first...) but a year ago I saw a booth at my local con that was selling clothes and they had their doll on display. Ever since then it's been on my mind! I was curious how long you waited before getting your first doll vs. when you heard/took interest in the hobby? I'm thinking of waiting until either after christmas or my birthday in December, just to make sure I have enough funds (: How about you all?
