Hello! So many owners create personalities and background stories for their dolls. They talk to them, create relationships with other dolls, and so forth. Now, if any part of a doll like a hand, leg, arm, was damaged beyond repair, then the BJD owner would usually replace it. However, what if the whole doll broke in a terrible accident? My questions: If your doll got badly damaged to the point where it can't be fixed, would you replace it with another one that is the same, or consider it... "dead"? If you did replace it, would it be the "same" one as before with the same personality and background story? What if you weren't able to get the exact mold anymore and had to get another kind? And that leads to my final question: Is your doll's identity a mental thing, or based off of its physical characteristics? Thanks for reading! These are just some questions I was thinking about one night, and now I'm really curious to hear what other people think.
