Reading the Amy Brown thread (it's in the news, folks) made me wonder: why is everyone so against anything (animé, EGL, and especially BJD) becoming mainstream? I mean, wouldn't it be a good thing? Wouldn't it be neat for more people to recognize your dolls when you take them places, or to have more access to affordable, passable quality clothing and accesories? I'll use the expample: why would it be so bad for Hot Topic to carry Amy Brown's BJD clothes? I mean, if you think about it, it'd really kick some major ass to be able to go into your friendly neighborhood Hot Topic and pick up and outfit for your doll, and not have to fuss with PayPal or shipping or any of that. Or even if the dolls themselves are mass produced and mainstream, wouldn't it be nice to be able to go to a store (that's not thousands of miles away) and really be able to look at someone in person, to hold them, test their posability, whatever, and not rely on photos? So, share your thoughts. I'm terribly curious why so many people get all up in arms at the idea of such-and-such becoming mainstream.
