Sorry If this is a repeat topic, I did look for anything else on it ^^;; So Lately I've been seeing just one or two dolls doing this,a younger ( usually MSD ) sized doll getting a so called 'older version' (SD) of themselves! 'Grown up' was sometimes used I thought it was a very cute idea and wanted to hear other tales about this if they're out there. It really made me wonder, Do dolls need, eventually, to 'grow up' at some point? I'm sure most of us are happy with our dolls eternally in their teens or so but what happens if the character seems to 'grow' itself? It falls for an SD, It begins to feel lonely and isolated in the small sculpt it was given, develops it's own taste and suddenly it's not the small 40cm doll you brought home to be the 'child' of your doll family. Does that even happen? o.O Would it be odd to have both younger and older doll together? They're the same character, Just in different times of their life. Would you WANT to keep both dolls or would it be weird? Would you keep both and turn the 'younger one' into a whole new character? Would you sell the 'younger version'? What would be your IC reason to have your dolls younger and older self in the same timeline? Would it effect relationships? It seemed like a really good concept and I'd love to hear other people's opinions on the whole idea of 'growing your doll up' so to speak. EDIT: Just to clarify. It is my opinion that when compared to a 60cm doll a 40cm doll will always look the part of a child. Their younger faces don't help this fact. It is on that idea that this thread was formed, of course anything from pukipuki-luts delf kids can be counted a 'child' and likewise I suppose one doesn't have to count 60cm as 'adult/young adult/youth etc' since 70cm-90cm dolls are also around. But for the sake of keeping everything and everyone on the same page let's assume that anything below 50cm is the 'child' version of a doll and everything above is an 'adult'. Hope this helps instead of confusing.
