Thanks so much for nominating me Olive! Olive of knottedthings she asks:

  1. How did you get into the doll hobby?….. About a year and a half, almost 2 years now my little sisters 8th birthday approached. She had just gotten into monster high dolls and I was browsing the web for that perfect new monster high doll for her… The more I looked into these dolls, the more I wanted one of my own. I loved their tiny details, and the ghoulish look of the dolls. I ended up buying original Meowlody and Purrsephone for my sister, and I found a nice used Spectra for myself, after that I couldn’t stop looking at dolls!
  2. What is your favorite brand of doll?… Hmmm this is tough, at the moment, probably Blythe, but I’ve been really in love with my LIV and Moxie teenz too. They have such poseable bodies, are still able to be customized… and are relatively easy to find, plus much cheaper than Blythe! But if I could find Blythe more easily I would have a ton of these dolls!!
  3. Do your dolls share anything in common with one another?………… Yes, they all have eyes, haha, no I don’t think that my dolls have too much in common, each of my dolls have a different personality and I try to dress and style them accordingly.
  4. Do you have a Grail doll? If so, which one is it?……. Yikes! I have a long list of dolls that I would like to own. Top three are 5th Motif – Venitu, Pukifee – Ante, and a new Blythe with emerald colored hair (doesn’t have to be Alexis emerald, but same hair color) or lavender hair, or Vinter Arden :D the list goes on…
  5. Pick your favorite doll line – what attributes do you hope their next release will have?…….. Blythe, and I hope they become more available in Canada. Otherwise Takara seems to be doing a good job, I love collaborative dolls!
  6. Have you learned a new craft because of being in the hobby?…….. Learning to paint on dolls.
  7. Who is your favorite doll in your collection?…….. My Blythe Ginger, and my trio of lightly customized MT dolls.
  8. Who is your favorite customizer, face-up artist, or do you prefer your dolls completely stock or with the factory face-up?……….. I don’t have a favorite customizer, but I follow a blog of an amazing faceup artist Ruggedrealism
  9. Who would you like to see your doll brand do a collaboration with? I want a better Tokidoki Blythe!
  10. What doll related project do you hope to do in the future? Finish my current projects, my tree house and make a dungeon!
  11. How big of a role does blogging have for you in relation to this hobby? Its basically just to have a community of other doll collectors to share with.

I’ve also been nominated by lotsofluckdolls she asks:

Q: What was the first doll in your collection that you still have now?        A: Spectra Vondergeist from the 13 wishes playset

Q: Do you have any lines/brands where you want to get any doll from that line, regardless of who it is?        A: yes, a Blythe doll.

Q: Best/ most interesting new doll line in the last 5 years?        A: I’d probably say monster high.

Q: Most ambitious doll-related project?           A: Carving my Blythe &  LIV wig cap reroot.

Q: How do the people you are close to feel/act about your interest in dolls?  Has anyone been mean? Or surprised you by being nice?        A: No one has been mean or rude, mostly people just try to ignore my dolls and avoid talking about them :b

Q: Do you have any stories of sibling/pet related doll destruction?         A: Yes, one of my lovely LIV Alexis’ is missing a pointer finger on the right hand :o  I’m not sure if my rabbit Abella bit it off or my chinchilla Nala, both of them got lose in my doll room at one point, and I didn’t notice right away.

Q: Do you have a mini me doll? If not, are you planning on making/getting one?          A: Yes, mini Miss Bunns.

Q: Does realism matter to you in a doll?         A: Not really, I like realistic dolls and really extream and “out there” dolls.

Q: Do you have a preferred doll size?               A: I like how big my Gooliope and giant Frankie are, and my Moxie teenz. I think a bit bigger might be nice. I also really like tiny dolls. I have 2 lil’ bratz dolls in my collection because they’re just so tiny.

Q: Is there a certain ‘look’ that your dolls have in common?         A: not really

Q: What other hobbies do you have?            A: I play video games, mostly for my 3Ds, I keep fish, drawing & painting, cooking & baking.
