    Interesting to find you in your thirties Alejandra, for some unknown reason I thought you were at University. I guess my imagination ran away with me. LOL! I enjoyed reading this meme, and I am with you on the size of dolls, I am moving some of my larger dolls on too.

      Maybe it is the way I write, often times people think I’m younger over the internet. University was hard but super fun times, I wouldn’t mind going back there haha.
      Oh? Which ones are you parting with? Guess I’ll have to go stalk your blog a bit harder hehehe

  2. Lise Schou

    Thank you for posting it 😀 It was lovely to read about you, even though I don’t think anything you told really surprised me XD
    Haha, I like how you will just never get over Dia. But to be fair, it IS a gorgeous sculpt. 😛

  3. Alasse Carnesir

    I’m glad you got in on this one too!

    I have to agree about Soom Dia. I’ve never paid much attention to that sculpt until I saw your photos and I have to admit that I can see the appeal. Maybe if I was still starting out in the hobby, I might have tried to get him but my collection on big dolls is at its absolute maximum.

    I always find doll stories and backgrounds really interesting. Especially of the fantasy persuasion. I honestly wish I could do that with my dolls but I’ve recently discovered that if I tried, there would be way too many characters for me to want to shell (and not enough space!)

    I have to admit, when I think of you, I think of Ailene. She comes to mind straight away as I see her as your unique doll. A mascot if you will for your doll collection. I don’t know why that’s the case though!

    I have to admit to getting sucked back into K-Drama world again myself! They seem to have some great musical scores.

      So sweet of you to think of Ailene first, it might be because she gets the most attention out of my bjd crew, I love her so much!! One thing that does bother me is that she has a default face up and I would like to have all dolls painted by me one day, but I just love her face like that, what if it never looks that good again?

      K-Dramas are so much fun! I started watching I’m not a robot and it was going slow and boring but I gave it an opportunity and now I’m really liking it!

      You don’t have to make your fantasy stories come to the doll world and that’s okay, but if you ever want to share them with us, I’d love to read them!

    Thank you for sharing this. It is always fun to learn more and read about others. 🙂
    And the Soom DIA, wonderful doll even if I would not have a place for a doll like that. But the Dia – Lord of Jotunheim is one handsome thing that I could make an exception for. 😀

  5. Musume

    Thanks for sharing, it is nice to read about others! I do wish Soom will make mini versions of their SDs, I think a lot of people will jump at them!

  6. Nana

    Oh I really like that tag – so fun to read, so thank you for sharing.
    Also the SIO 2 sheep is so cute <3
    I remember I saw the first BJD in…2007-8?! on Deviant Art and I had no clue what it was or where to get them. It was really hard back then

    1. Fantasywoods Post author

      Sio2 sheep is the best!! <3!!!
      I don't remember when I first saw a BJD photo, but I was hooked! Even if I didn't know what they were exactly, those are good memories right!?
