    1. Everyone has a different idea of what those options mean of course, please take ones like 'cute' and 'beautiful' to mean what you personally feel meets those standards and share which dolls you have or like that meet your standard!

      For 'realistic' I mean those that try to emulate real people or at least real races and are often super expressive whilst mature just refers to any doll meant to look like an adult but isn't necessarily realistic as it can be a fantasy sculpt. I tried to include a whole bunch of things a doll can be though I've probably missed something and you can click as many as you like , I'm just curious as to what sort of things attracts a person~

    2. I like realistic, mature and SD. I like faces with character, asymmetries, quirks. I’m not a fan of super smooth, perfect faces.

    3. Depands of doll size...

      I like mature SD with strong features and prominent or interesting noses. They don't need to be realistic. Personally, I prefer elves or dolls who reminds me of elves despite they don't have pointy ears. But I would happily buy realictic doll as long as the sculpt suits my planned character. No problem at all.

      In MSD and smaller sizes I definitelly prefer anthros and pet dolls -- both realistic, semi-realistic or fantasy pet dolls, it really doesn't matter. Anthros can be child-like or mature looking, cute, less cute...I have no strong preference here. My favourite ones are cats, foxes, mice.

    5. Boys. Apparently I bond best with boys lol

    6. I want my girls to be pretty and my guys to be handsome. I'd prefer for them to look like grown adults since I don't like kids. I also prefer more of the realistic sculpts as well!

    7. I love realism and anime, so I go with both. I do prefer smaller scales/sizes but own mostly larger sized BJD. I prefer mature males, even if they are not realistic. I already own too many females in other types of dolls, so I chose to purchase mostly males in BJD form. I rarely collect any child-like dolls, although I do own two child sculpts by DZ, I rarely play with them and they are stuck in modification-limbo for now (I sold the body to one of them, so he's floating head). I love creepy, so I think most of my dolls are a bit creepy/scary looking -- the ones based on OCs are mostly vampires, the ones based on licensed characters are mostly villains or are twisted in some way. However, because I am a weirdo, I also sincerely believe all of my dolls are aesthetically pleasing to my eyes, and I consider them beautiful and scary at the same time. I don't believe any of them fit the standard of pretty or beautiful, and I'm more than fine with that (I like sculpts that are highly unpopular, not because I choose it that way, but because I am drawn to things most people don't find appealing). (:

    8. I went with cute, mature and large because I mostly only collect SD and most of my crew represents OCs who are teens or young adults. I'm not into the hyper realistic dolls, so maybe cute would fit my style better.

    9. I voted beautiful, realistic and mature. I just love realistic sculpts but that doesn't mean I don't love my minifees.

    10. I prefer big guys. Realistic and mature. Well, as far as you can say that of a group of men. They can be so inmature at times. That is why the ladies are required to remind them of their business. They are required to look mature, as I do not like the face of a 15 year old boy on the body of a 30 year old man (personal pet peeve).

      What is beautiful is a rather personal thing. I like the looks of my dolls, but are they beautiful? Some, maybe. To me it is more important that I see their character they are meant to represent in them.

    11. I also like realistic dolls. As far as size goes, I'd actually love to find more smaller, mature guys around, but alas, since there aren't a whole lot of them around, I usually end up picking SD dolls. I also love looking at spooky/fantasy dolls, though I strongly doubt I'm ever going to get any, mostly because I'm only planning to get a few dolls and the ones I have are already taking over my room due to their, uh, rather imposing sizes, lol.

    12. I could arguably like any kind of doll from that list, but I chose:
      Cute / Beautiful
      (I didn't choose Anime or Realistic, I tend to like the ones that are stylized enough to not be realistic, but still don't exactly have that "anime character come to life" feeling)
      (I also wanna say I'm super into the idea of eventually owning a scary/spooky doll, I just currently haven't seen one that particularly scratches the itch for horror that I have, most are either "spooky themed but not scary" or "scary but not otherwise appealing to me")
      Unusual Shape/Body (I currently only have a doll with a pretty regular shape but I really wanna own both a Doll Chateau and a Kinoko Juice, both of which are dolls that have arguably somewhat unusual body shapes. That being said, I'm not sure if this maybe meant REALLY unusual ones rather than just proportionally stylized ones, things like skeletons or mermaids or monsters)
      Child-like and Baby-like (I will own any maturity and size of doll, but I have been really into YOSDs and Tinies lately)

    13. I have and enjoy a large range of styles when it comes to BJDs. I love fantasy dolls like centaurs, dolls with horns and wings. Then on the other side I enjoy very 'real' looking dolls. For me the face is really what pulls me into a doll. :thumbup

    14. I chose cute, expressive and fantasy parts. I like the idea of them being funny and adventurous. Like a fun crowd of people to go exploring with.

    15. Since almost all of mine are children, that's the first box I selected. I don't mind the size - I have more Sd size than any othr, but I have RealPuki tthrough Lusion so cover a lot of different sizes. I don't like them too expressive (especially eyebrows) as I find that limits them to whatever expression the brows are painted as. I prefer them more neutral. I don't like frowning/grumpy looking dolls, smiles are preferable.

      Some have fantasy parts (elf ears predominate), the majority don't. Non-frowny child dolls is my basic preference. the child part often presents difficulties in SD size as there aren't many immature bodies in that size and haivng them as children makes furniture hard to find as it's all scaled for dolls that are adults at that size.

    16. I'm a fan of medium-smaller dolls... mostly because I don't think I could handle a big doll, haha... People who can are admirable!
      I also really like strange, non-conventially beautiful faces... Like lil piggy noses, assymetry etc.

    17. I'm basing this on the favorite of my crew. He's a 1/3 size doll with some realism to his face-up but his beauty (a flawless look) tones the realism down. While he does have tattoos, he doesn't have marks or flaws, I love clear skin and struggle to have it for myself. I only have boy dolls and he is my biggest at 62cm.

    18. I chose anime, boys and unusual size. I should have also added anthro as I have quite a few. Somehow I am drawn to the unusual size, even though it drives me crazy dressing them. I have two realistic guys and just got one finally dressed.

    19. Small fantasy dolls are my favorite. I don't want want them to take up a lot of space, and I love mytholoy/fanstay creatures

    20. I prefer female dolls, but I range between wanting them to look cute/beautiful and other times scary. What I wish I'd see more often is fantasy parts for dolls. Sometimes I have a character in mind but the sculpts I like for that character are missing elf ears, a tail, or hooves. I wish there were more companies that would be willing to customize sculpts a bit like Resinsoul does.
