Mods please delete if you feel it needs to be Aside from their charming and attracting looks that makes you want them so badly to the point losing $$$! is okay , what is really your true reason for getting a doll? Recently, I brought Brendon to school and my classmates were so fascinated about him. I was able to convince 3 of my friends to get their own too and what I noticed about their interest in these dolls is quite different from each other. The first one wanted a doll because of their striking looks and their wide variety of customizations, the other one is an aspiring designer (she actually sews her own designs and competes them in school conventions) and she really likes these dolls as a perfect model for her projects, and the last one wanted a doll as an art model for her photography. Me? I basically want a doll to have somebody with me. Not that I'm an unloved person, I believe I'm blessed with loving parents and supportive friends. My first intention for adopting these wonderful dolls is I want to make them as an outlet for my creativity. I love drawing. I like creating characters and clothing them with fancy outfits, but I can only make them real through my sketches. These dolls help you achieve that because you have all the power to make them unique in the world. But when I began living with them and spending time with them, I noticed they bring this kind of positive energy around the house. When I'm alone or tired throughout the day when I see them I feel comforted and cared and loved for some reason. EDIT: When I was flaming with fever about two weeks ago, my parents went away that time and so I lie Brendon beside me on my bed to have somebody with. I kissed him and hugged him and told him how bad I was feeling and wow he felt so human! By the time my parents got home, I got out of bed and start helping my mom prepare dinner. I felt so healthy and full of energy considering I only spend 2hours of rest without taking medication. I was planning to tell my parents to take me to the hospital but lol I didn't have to cause my doll is already my doctor. ^^ So yeah, there are many reasons for one to own a doll, but what is really the true reason? It might be for art, or for your work, or projects, or an outlet... you tell.. maybe after finally living with them you notice that there is something more meaningful they can help you with and you realize that that is actually the true reason why you need them.
