I’ve had a few requests to take photos of my (ever-growing) doll family and as I look at them on my shelf… it got to me thinking… was there a theme? What makes me pick my dolls?
I have a pretty eclectic mix of girls (Blythe and Pullip) from the crazy candy-coloured Dal Joujou to the extremely serious looking Pullip Galene. My Blythe girls range from some smiley and grumpy customs to serious girls like Bianca Pearl.
I worked out pretty quick that for Pullip, I pick girls because of their stock, whereas for Blythe, I pick girls because of their hair. It’s quite easy compared to Blythe to change a Pullip Wig (where is re-rooting seems to be a rabbit hole I don’t want to try!).
How do you pick which girls to buy?
One of my major problems though are my “Liquid Wishlists”. I’m pretty good with my budgeting to allow me to put some money aside for my hobbies, so I always have a wishlist that I am working towards. The problem though is that they’re liquid… as in, I would save for one girl before deciding I really wanted a different one. Dangnit! And then I still want the previous one! haha such is life.
