Or my adventures in the 1/4 world
I’m always complaining about how little space I have for my dolls since they are so big: and don’t get me wrong, I love the size since it has some really nice pros, like the amount of gorgeous male sculpts and how mature the faces are (though in the last few years there’s been a lot of mature MSDs), but I always wondered how would it be to own smaller dolls.
So I was contacted by a group of friends that had Mini supia girls and wanted to see how the old big body looked like. Since they live in my city we made a small meet up with mostly Supia dolls.
This was my first time leaving the house with a doll, so that was quite an adventure! I get there and see how little their bags were compared to mine, since 1/4s take way less space, so that was the first pro of MSDs right there. We took out our dolls out of the bag and it was fun time!
I can’t say taking photos of smaller dolls was easier, but it was more enjoyable (much more easy to stand them and move around), though I had a few problems trying to get sharp images (light was crappy so there’s that). I’ll show you some pictures I took, and as you will soon see, I totally neglected Hana the entire day, so no photos of her pretty face today XD.
I can say lots of reasons, reasonable reasons why I should change to MSD and sell my big dolls. Thing is, I think I could sell Hana quite easily and my Dia boy as well, but that’s the point: I can’t separate myself from his tanned perfection. I’m sure I could reshell Hana in msd size easily, but what about Lucas? for me the Dia sculpt is the best sculpt in the whole world. Having him in tan was my grail, and there’s no way I could part ways, unless SOOM releases him in 1/4.
Oh well, being perfectly honest, I really don’t find many male sculpts in that size I like, and there’s a bazillion in my SD whislist, so I couldn’t downsize despite all my love/hate for the 1/3 scale.
But enough of my rant! I had a really nice day getting to know other doll collectors near me and it was super cool to see other dolls as well. I hope you enjoy the pictures! They were taken by me and posted here with permission of their respective owners.
