Haven't seen something like this specifically, but if there's something the mods think fit a pre-existing thread - or not DoA at all - please feel free to lock, delete, merge, and direct me to one! Ok, I have seen some 'stop buying' threads around the DoA forums, but I suddenly wondered if there are certain criteria that you think make it 'easier' to resist buying doll stuff. One I thought of was if it was easier to resist buying if you have characters, or if you don't have a character. So, what are your thoughts? Which situation, do you think, makes it easier to just say 'no'? ------------ My take: Sure, one might first believe that having a character might be easier because you have certain standards for your character's doll. However, that can also depend on how many characters you have in mind - or if you decide to add more down the line. Others might feel that not having character dolls might be easier because there are no standards to fit, so you might have more flexibility in what you want; ie, you don't have to have the $800 doll because it fits your character perfectly. But, of course, it's strength is also it's downside. Because there are no limits, there is greater flexibility to get any doll you see and really like. And of course, both situations can go from one to the other. Like, you buy a non-character doll when you only have characters; or you buy a doll for a character, when you don't have any.
