So this October willl mark my one-year "anniversary" as a BJD collector! That is, not counting the endless months we all spend researching and starting with the month my first boy arrived. To date I have two full dolls and two floating heads. My question to you guys is, How many dolls did you purchase in your first year of collecting? Did you stay content with your first doll for a while, did you immediately start buying more, or do you still just have your one doll? Similarly, Did you finish your first doll before buying more? My first still needs eyes and clothes and I'm in the middle of redoing his faceup for the third time and finishing his tattoos. I find I buy resin faster than eyes or clothes! What about you guys? EDIT: Wanted to add that, when I say your first year, I mean the 12 month period following the arrival of your very first BJD ^^ Just to clear up any confusion~ EDIT 2 : Just saw this thread pop up and thought I'd update my response! My first doll was a birthday gift so every time my birthday comes around it marks another year spent in this hobby. My birthday is in the next few days which means I've been in this hobby for about three years now (which is not much time compared to some people!) and I have had many dolls come and go to get where I am today(: I don't have any of my original dolls from my first year anymore, but I do not regret selling them since my tastes have changed so much! I had ALL boys in the start, now I have one boy and three girls *O* What a change! To everyone who is celebrating their first year in the hobby, congrats and I hope you have found a hobby that will stay with you for many more years to come!
