I'm a newbie here, so please, forgive if the subject has been discussed already or there actually is a thread concerning my point. I've been eyeing BJDs for some time now. And have read alot about people owning them, the way they treat them, name and pose. Since I'm not an owner of one yet, I wanted to ask You, owners, how do you treat your dolls? Apart from the fact they are extremely expensive, what is basically the reasn to take care, do you develop any strong emotional connection? I mean connection which unables you to hold your doll by a leg, upside-down, or lay face down on the floor, like you happen to leave your teddy bears? ;p I've seen a few photos, where people tend to hold them by a hand, or keep them sitting on their hands, cuddling, kissing etc. Nearly as if they were real, living creatures. Are those dolls just an expensive decoration element, a "toy" of sort, or something much more, a... friend? Personally, I'm more than sure I would carry my dolls (since I'm small and they're big ;p) as groom carries his bride out of the church (lol: http://static.howstuffworks.com/gif/groom-carry-bride-2.jpg). Please, share!
