As always, I’m supposed to tag some people at the end, but I’ve seen that anyone has been tagged already XD
Hope I don’t bore you too much with my answers!
Werewolf – How has the hobby “transformed” you?
I don’t think the hobby has trully transformed me, but it makes me want to try things I wasn’t interested before, like sewing (someday) or crochet. It also makes me fight with myself because I’ve always been a person who loves to save money, not so much to spend it, so I have to fight that side of me when I want some doll stuff.
Vampire – The dreaded sun! How do you feel about and cope with yellowing, or more generally the aging of these dolls?
I’m okay with it now. The first doll I got has a really peachy skin tone that I wasn’t too fond of, so it yellowed really nice (for now). The first time I realized she has yellowed was when I was changing her eyes and inside the headcap the color was still peach and very vibrant, and the outside was more creamy. I think I freaked out for like 10 minutes before I could sit down and say to myself that I knew it was going to happen and it’s inevitable, even if I have my dolls in their boxes. Sometimes I think I should take more photos of my dolls to capture their color when new before it goes away, but you know me XD
Frankenstein’s Monster – Have you ever modded a doll? Tell us about it! If you could magically try any mod without fear of failure, what would you like to try?
I haven’t tried any mods, I just do face ups. I can’t think of any mod I’d like to try at the moment.
Zombie – Have you ever caught the Marketplace virus?? Name some unplanned purchases that jumped out and “infected” you?
I check the marketplace sometimes, but I’ve never bought anything. Two times I’ve been tempted, but I chickened out before even contacting the sellers. The first time was for a grey Beyla/Bygg and the second time was for some clothes for yoSD.
Skeleton – What’s your favorite body sculpt? Forget heads!
I think the Supia female old body is gorgeous! Even if it’s single jointed it has nice poseability and it’s very detailed, I specially love the back.
Witch – Name some dolls that are magical! Seeing them on your dashboard inspires you! Can be general sculpts or specific dolls owned by talented friends.
I think a photo or a doll is magical when it looks real. It doesn’t have to look like a real person (though sometimes that’s the case), as long as it makes me think that it could belong to reality, that’s when magic happens.
Ghost – The one that got away. Do any limited or rare dolls “haunt” you to this day?
I used to hate Chrom when it was first released, but a month or so after his sale period was over I started to fall in love with the sculpt. Everytime he’s been re released I’ve lost a chance to get him. But now I’m at peace with it, I don’t really need the sculpt anymore. He was replaced by Heliot dream ripper haha, which I also missed, but I hope to get him someday. Or maybe not, who knows what will I want in the future.
Freddy Krueger – What is your worst doll nightmare? Has it happened or not?
I think one of the things I’ve always feared was to ruin a doll when trying face ups, like those horror stories of dolls that got tinted by colored acetone or melted or weren’t properly sealed and the color passed onto the resin. So far I haven’t done anything bad to any of the heads I’ve painted, but I always play it safe: I use the materials everyone has prove that work and I seal a lot before the first layer of color.
Jason Voorhees – If you were gonna make Halloween costumes for your dolls (or if you plan to!) what costumes would you make?
If I could make the costumes I definitely would make characters from musicals, Ailene could be Annie (or Matilda), Lucas the Phantom of the opera (or Shakespeare, Something Rotten’s style) and Hana could be Anna from The King and I or Glinda from Wicked (because I don’t think She would feel much like Elphaba).
Chucky (possessed doll) – Have you ever been scared of dolls or a certain doll? Be honest!
There’s a head sculpt that I saw a few times in tumblr that had carved eyes all around, just thinking about it makes me feel horrible! I can’t stand seeing it and I hope people would tag the sculpt properly so I could completely block it from my tumblr. Thinking about it makes me want to take my own skin off.
