    10. What is your favorite...

      * New Company for 2010:..did Ariadoll start in 2010? If so, Ariadoll it is!
      * New Male Sculpt for 2010: Switch Vian&Crobidoll Do-Hu
      * New Female Sculpt for 2010: Or-doll Heye
      * Limited Edition Fullset for 2010: Volks SD17 Williams-those boots! That coat!
      * BJD Outfit for 2010: I don't know, I make all my clothes so I don't really keep track of what there is to buy..
      * BJD Shoes for 2010: Leeke's limited christmas dark red with silver sparkles heel shoes! I'm sure that's not what they were actually called, but they are gorgeous. Ordered them of course, can't wait for them to get here!
      * BJD Accessory for 2010: This isn't something that came out from a company, but I finally got Saix a perfect knitted baret, knitted custom for me by a wonderful lady I met at a dolls&bears fair. I had been looking for something just like that forever, but could never find it and I can't knit well enough, so even though it was only 2 euro's and 50 cents, it's definitely my accessory of the year!
      * Doll "innovation" for 2010: I really like the Jungatory skull, the idea of skull bjd=awesome
      * Free Event Item in 2010: Crobidoll full body pillows!
      * BJD Event or Contest in 2010: I really liked the idea of the double box event Ariadoll did.
      * BJD Article, Book, Magazine or other Publication in 2010: I like the online blogs like Doll-Lite and BJDMagazine, but no paper publication comes to mind




      In 2010, how many...

      * ...doll events did you attend? Two, and a doll meet in London at an anime event :)
      * ...dolls did you buy? One and a head.
      * ...dolls did you miss out on buying? One head..I really wanted a Switch Vian head, but was too late with deciding ;-;
      * ...dolls did you sell? None
      * ...doll hobbyists did you meet in person for the first time? Quite a few on said events, like a few very nice ladies from Italy and lots of very nice people at the London doll meet. It's fun meeting more and more international doll fans! Next year I'd love to go to Ldoll, if it's organized again ^__^




      In 2010, did you...

      * ...buy more/fewer dolls than you had planned? I planned a few more, but I'm happy with the amount I have now nontheless. When I did have the money to buy another doll, I spend it on lots of stuff for my current dolls instead, and I like that even better, in a way.
      * ...acquire your dream doll? I already have those *cuddles her Seimei and Cecile*
      * ...find a new dream doll? hmm...there is some renewed love coming up for sculpts I've always wanted but never really went for(such as SwD Lucas, Shinku, Luna..)so, maybe a new dream doll in the making.
      * ...learn a new skill? Yes, making needlelace, which I'm now obsessively adding to my doll's clothes XD
      * ...improve on something you knew how to do already? Yes, I'm finally improving on face-ups a little bit, and I'm improving on sewing and corset making every day, because I'm always searching for new techniques, improvements, better ways to translate existing, old techniques to dolls..I hope to improve much, much more in the next year!

    12. What is your favorite...

      I don't know the answer to most of those questions. Since I've done very little buying this year, I haven't been paying a lot of attention to new companies or a lot of the new dolls that have come out in 2010. The sculpts I want to complete my doll family are older.

      Though when it comes to fave shoes Dollheart had a great pair that I wish came in human size, lol.

      In 2010, how many...

      * ...doll events did you attend?

      I made it to something like eight or nine meetups
      * ...dolls did you buy?
      A Volks SD Sara off the marketplace
      * ...dolls did you miss out on buying?
      I don't know if I missed out exactly -- I stayed out of the marketplace for the most part since I know I didn't have the money to do a lot of buying this year.
      * ...dolls did you sell?
      None are actually sold yet, but swapped some heads and bodies and then packed up 6 complete dolls and two heads. Several of those I know I want to part with, a few others are on wait and see status.
      * ...doll hobbyists did you meet in person for the first time?
      I'm actually not sure of the number -- one of the meets I went to was out of town, so I didn't know several of the people there, and then there were some new faces in the more local meetup groups too.




      In 2010, did you...

      * ...buy more/fewer dolls than you had planned?

      I bought much fewer dolls than I have in previous years, but I hadn't planned on a lot of buying anyway.
      * ...acquire your dream doll?
      I never really had a grail doll, but I had wanted an SD Four Sisters for a long time, and did finally get her.
      * ...find a new dream doll?
      Again, I'm not really one for grail dolls, but I have better figured out what I want in terms of sculpts.
      * ...learn a new skill?
      I did some wiring on a body which isn't at all difficult, but I had never done it before.
      * ...improve on something you knew how to do already?
      Faceups have definitely gotten better -- I'm better with lip color and eyebrows.
