What I meant is does your doll's character know/acknowledge that it is a doll? Many people have characters and back stories for their dolls so I wanted to know does your doll's character profile include simple things such as likes, dislikes, and basic personallity or does it include that plus family history, back story, where he/she works, has a family, or attemds school. Does your dolls character interact with you, live in your house as a doll or does it live in an imaginary fairy wourld or version of our own world where he/she is a person, not a doll. I don't even have my doll yet and have all ready started on his back story and gone so far as to write out a family history and current family members(some of which I already have another doll in mind for)(Not a DIM just a doll that is in my mind ) I have even started creating, in my mind, an imaginary country where he is supposed to have originated from! I have always loved developing emaginary characters & civilizations even before BJD. My dolls will not be dolls in my house; they will represent characters. What about you and your dolls?
