Hej! Long time no see :D
Thought I'd just check in with a meme that Nikki from tagged me in >w< Thanks dear!

1.How long have you been collecting?
I'm pretty sure I have been collecting (BJD's) since summer of 2008 ish!

2.What do you collect?
Currently I collect BJD's, Schleich horse figures, drawing supplies and art books, art prints I guess. xD

3.How many dolls do you have?
I have 2 SD's at home (Ameko and Kiseki), 1 SD incoming (Chihiro), 3 MSD's (Nereus, Aileen and Pearl), 3 tinies (Nox, Puchi and *nameless*), 1 mature yosd (Fae), 5 yosd's (Mali, Pax, Iseul, Ènnan, Jun), so 14 at home and one incoming, wow. xD

4.Which of your collections are you the most proud of? Why?
My dolls probably, although I'm also pretty proud of the art supplies and art prints I have hoarded so far, haha xD I have a collection of four LoZ fanprints that I bought 5 years ago that I simply adore <3
But the dolls take priority, and since I've costumized most of them myself that adds to the level of proudness :P

5.Which single doll cost you the most money? (Relatively and literally)
 I think it has to be the newest one on the way, although Ameko was only a little less expensive xD Chihiro will come with a bit more of extra parts though, but regardless. :)

6.Which doll line is your favorite to collect and why?
Based on the amount of dolls I have, in a certain size I guess it'd be yosd's! They are cute and easy to transport around, although I haven't really felt the need to actually get one in a while, I think I prefer smaller sizes and down. Although I admire the details that can be added to an SD, so I'm definitely also happy about that size although it took some convincing to get back into. :P

7.What made you want to collect dolls?
I really liked how costumizable they are! I tried shelling characters already created once, but they always ended up changing, but the fact that characters can be created and eyes and wigs and what not can be changed was just so amazing to me. And now with so many diverse sculpts it's hard not to find something you really like :D

8.Which is your most wanted doll right now?
Feeple65 Siean, I have been wanting this doll for three years after I missed her being for sale at Fairyland, and .. yesterday I finally ordered her! Otherwise it might be a Lillycat Ninon or a DepthDoll Deilf (mermaid version) which I might try to hunt down in the coming year >w<

9.Which of your previously most wanted dolls do you have now?
Luts Tiny Delf Peter Elf Centaur ;w; I missed the first preorders for these babies, so when one popped up two years ago, I had to get it!

10.What is the most dolls you have gotten at once?
Uh, this one is kind of hard, because in the last two years I've been waiting for at least 3 dolls at the same time, however they were purchased and arrived spaced out from each other xD But like, there was a year where they were coming in in a steady flow, and now I only have one doll (+ the incoming one) left to paint, so that I'm proud of though, that I have been able to paint them within a year from getting them .. (Sad story of my Soom Minette who waited for a faceup for almost three or four years. I was the worst dolly owner)

11.Which is your least favorite doll?
Of my own dolls? I don't know, I really like all of the ones I have at home. >w<

12.Which of your dolls has the best story (in your life and in theirs?)
Ameko, probably, I have been a fan of MDR's dolls for a while, because I mean, look at them. Particularly Fang. But last year when I stumbled over them again, I had sort of sworn off SD sized dolls, because of prior experiences.. xD But them MDR released the Komorebi body and talked about releasing her Fang in this beaaaaaaaaautiful color. And it just clicked. The Komorebi body reminded me so much of my own that I mean.. I had to xD Obviously. It took like a month from the day I saw the preorder for me to justify it for myself, with some help from Nikki and my Boyfriend, but I remember I woke up super early on the preorder day and managed to snatch one just a few minutes after the opening of the preorder <3 I was so nervous! I had never tried to buy a quantity limited doll before!
But then Ameko was ordered and I was so nervous, what if I didn't like the size, and so many other what if's. But she arrived, and I don't think I have ever been happier with a doll purchase >w< Nikki and Maria were so lovely in encouraging and lending me clothes so she wouldn't be completely naked, and just ..yeah >w<
It was pretty darn awesome :D

In the doll universe I dunno, my characters do not really have set stories per se, so xD

13.What do you do with your dolls?
I play with them xD I'm not really good at remembering to take pictures of them, but sometimes I just grab a doll (recently mostly Ameko or Kiseki) and sit with them in my lap or on my desk just doing things, or doing nothing. :P

14.Are there any other collections that you want to start?
I am not sure XD I collect so many things already that I do not think it'd be a good idea.. I do sorta want to get a Ruruko doll though, but we'll see :P

15.Which of your dolls would you most like to be? Why?
Oh, I don't know xD As I said none of my dolls really have a set story or anything so.. xD

16.Do people know that you collect dolls/toys?
yep, I'm pretty open about my hobbies xD

17.Does your family support your collection?
I think they think the price tag is tooo over the top, and my mom certainly doesn't like me having so many, but eh, most of the time they just tease me a bit over them.

18.What was your first doll/toy collection that you can remember? Do you still have them?
Oh, I collected Barbie's, bratz, teddies, schleich, pokemon cards, comics .. xD I still have my entire manga collection, most of it at my parent's though, some schleich figurines too. At my apartment I have a couple of Schleich figures and my entire Pokémon card collection, and some teddies :P

19.Which doll started each of your collections?
I don't remember any of the dolls before the BJD's, but a Dream of Doll U was my first bjd :D

20.What is your favorite place to shop for dolls?
Nine9Style, TaoBao and Luts are the only places I have really shopped at for doll clothes and what not so xD

Thank you for the tag, Nikki! I'm not gonna tag anyone tho >w<
