I've searched, and not find anything exactly on this topic - there's a thread specifically about buying multiple dolls/LEs to resell, but that doesn't quite answer my question. I've recently been inspired by an idea for a potential 'set' of customs I want to make. The problem is that I a) don't really want to own so many dolls myself and b) can't afford to buy that many dolls all at once. But what I've realised I could do is buy one doll, customise it, sell it, and use the 'profits' (I don't expect to get much more than cost back, as I'm not a well-known customiser yet) to buy the next doll to customise. I'm personally happy with just creating pretty things; I don't mind not owning them all (I may keep the last one in the 'set'). Just photographs of them before I send them off to their new owners would be enough to make me happy - I'm more interested in the creation than the owning. But I realised that this might be treading close to the 'buying to resell' line. So I was wondering - is there a difference between buying a doll to customise, with the intention of selling the custom, compared to just buying a doll to resell? Does it change things if you buy multiple dolls with the same intention? What if they are all the same doll, from the same company? And though I'm not considering doing this with limiteds, would that make a difference again?
