After... You've been in the hobby for a while... You've got all your characters shelled... You've got your Grail Dolls and Wish List filled... You've got a bunch of the perfect dolls just the way you wanted and planned... (is this an impossible goal? Has anyone ever had this happen?) What's next??? Do you swap them all out for something else? Do you go on to another hobby? Do you just keep buying dolls? Do you start focusing on other things for you dolls, like making rooms for them or making more elaborate photo stories or ??? Do you start up a company of your own to make dolls or parts for dolls or clothes, wigs, etc.? (I mean, not as a means for buying more dolls, which a lot of people do... but as a new focus after you get most of the dolls you want and need something else to do.) Do you see things changing--and how? What would you like to see happen--With yourself, or with the hobby? Do you hope doll companies will come up with new things that will change bjds as we know it? Do you think you'll go on to come up with something new and innovative for bjds? Or do you just go on playing with your dolls and wait and see? Basically--When you have all your dolls... what do you think you'll do then? Do we always need something else to BUY --or something NEW--to keep up our interest? Or can be be happy with what we have and... do what??? Or is getting all your perfect dolls an impossible goal? Has this ever happened to anyone? --if so, what happened after that? Do you have plans for what to do when you've got all the dolls you want? ------------ I've been buying dolls since '04, which is why I've got so many by now... I know this can't go on forever, things will change--whether it's the companies and the dolls (new or different things) or the hobby itself (the long-foretold crash may happen or something else), or something will change with myself (will something happen to distract me? will I get bored? will I end up with a gazillion dolls???). I don't know... So I'm curious about what people think will happen to them--or to BJDs--as things go along and more people have the current dolls they want. I've noticed that some early BJD folk have gradually left the hobby. Is that the only thing that can happen? Or is there something else? I'm just curious about what people think will happen to them.
