Whereas this does partially relate to aesthetics, I feel like it's more of a topic for 'general discussion,' since I'm not really wanting to know techniques for dealing with it or prevention. (Sorry if I should have put this in aesthetics instead, mods!) I've never really taken my dolls outside much since I am paranoid of their resin yellowing prematurely. With one of my new girls coming though, I just feel like I really, really want to take her outside to photograph as well as just taking her on outings with me. Of course since I am paranoid, I am wondering how good of an idea this is. Still, I know a lot of people take their dolls places with them. I know it's possible to avoid yellowing sooner by lessening exposure to sunlight, but am I being overly paranoid about being concerned about this? I suppose I could just take my dolls with me places and only take them out of their carrier if I'm going to take a photo, but when I think of this I wonder why I would take one out at all? For those of you that do take your dolls out a lot - do you hold them in your arms even if you're walking around outside (I'd like to take my girl to Disney with me in a few months, but again, paranoia!), or do you store them in a carrier and only take them out for photos? Edit: Thanks for the responses. I'm not worried about taking my dolls out anymore. If anyone else is feeling concerned about this though, I encourage you to read the responses I've gotten here as well as search through DoA on the yellowing topic.
