I'm currently waiting on my first BJD ever, a Fairyland Niella, and twiddling my thumbs in anticipation. (I know I have a while yet to wait.) The thing is, I'd been doing research for a while and I honestly never expected that my first would be a Minifee. I always saw them as very common, and just another pretty face; I found myself much more drawn to companies specializing in the weird and fantastic, like Doll Chateau. Then the Fairyland Winter Event happened and Niella reminded me so much of an old character of mine I have fond memories of that I just fell in love instantly and immediately changed all of my plans. I went through a period of anxiety over it, but now that I've committed I haven't felt regret since. I've even found myself appreciating Minifees more now, though I don't expect my collection will be full of them. So what about you guys? Do any of you have similar stories, or was your choice of first doll exactly what you'd expect of yourself? I've love to hear!
