Too Spooky Halloween Monster Tag

Lise tagged me to do this funny meme :D
I must say I've enjoyed reading the ones my friends with blogs have posted. It's super interesting to learn what other people think. ^^

Let's do this! ^0^)/

Werewolf - How has the hobby "transformed" you?

Well, I've been collecting for 7~8 years now, so my hobby has certainly grown with me. ;D
I went from loving J-rock and anything and everything Japanese to being more moderately interested in that which I think is definitely reflected in my dolls. XD I remember my first doll - a CP Delf Shine - who wore visual kei clothes and had smoky eyes. I feel my current creativity is more broad. I don't just want dolls anymore, I want them to have characters and I want to know their story. I feel I get much more satisfaction in my everyday now, just from having dolls around. ^^
I've also deepened some very precious friendships due to this hobby. Don't know if it counts as transformation, but I sure appreciate those friendships <3

Vampire - The dreaded sun! How do you feel about and coping with yellowing, or more generally the ageing of these dolls?

I really hate the fact that the dolls will yellow (or green) over time. But I accept it. I'd love for them to stay like new for all eternity, but I don't own anything that will never break or the like so it seems unfair to expect it from the dolls ^^"
In a way it could be seen as a reason for getting new dolls all the time just to have that 'new' doll. Muhahahaaa

Frankenstein's Monster - Have you ever modded a doll? Tell us about it! If you could magically try and mod without fear of failure, what would you like to try?

No I can't say I have. I wanted to once. When I still had my Luts Senior Delf Dahlia. She was SO yellowed poor thing, so I wanted to dye her grey and sculpt her some fantasy legs. In the end I sold her. ^^"
I love seeing other peoples mods, but right now I don't really have any interest in it. I'd much rather sculpt stuff from scratch :D

Zombie - Have you ever caught the Marketplace virus?? Name some unplanned purchases that jumped out and "infected" you?

I've never actually bought anything, but I've seen a lot of interesting dolls I considered. Especially when I see Peak's Woods FOC dolls I just feel like saving them XD'
I have done some unplanned purchases though. That time I 'accidentally on purpose' bought both types of PW Dlight I got back into only wanting big dolls. So they certainly "infected" me. Darn you Peak's Woods!! All your gorgeous sculpts ;^; U make me so poor!

Skeleton - What's your favourite body sculpt? Forget heads!

I love love love the Peak's Woods FOC Lolita body. It's petite and gorgeous and poses quite well. I also really like the Iplehouse nYID girl body because it has CURVES!! So sexeeeeh!! *__* <3
For guys I sure love the Iplehouse EID body, but it doesn't really pose too good. I'd love to have a Dollits Hyun someday, that body looks gorgeous. Popodoll's 70cm is also amazingly sculped!

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.

Hmm...all Peak's Woods' dolls really. Especially the newer ones with those extremely amazing faceups and skin tones. *___________*
Uh! I also NEED that Iplehouse nYID Bianca in grey one day! I mean, like my body needs water!
I generally really like to stalk people on Flickr and Instagram to see their pretty dolls, but I don't have specific dollies. If I like what a person does, I tend to like all their dolls XD'

Ghost - The one that got away. Do any limited or rare dolls "haunt" you to this day?

Well, I would have said IH Bianca, but she is not impossible to order, so I don't feel she counts.
Had you asked me a couple of years ago I would have said Soom Heliot - I was so in love with that face! XD Now I'm sort of happy I didn't get him though :P
I don't feel haunted by any limited out there, but I would have if I hadn't bought the ones I have. Of cause I don't really know that, but I feel I couldn't live without them ;D

Freddy Krueger - What is your worst doll nightmare? Has it happened or not?

As many others have said, if a big fire or explosion destroyed them I would be devastated. Also, I had this one nightmare where my young distant cousin found my doll and brought it with her in the garden to play. When I saw it and told her to give it to me, she wouldn't and all the 'adults' (yes, I'm 26 and still doesn't really see myself as adult) were getting angry with me for being mean. But then I told them the price and they all froze and the young girl just dropped the doll out of shock. It broke in thousand pieces. oO"
When I woke up however, my first thought was "Good thing it was in the garden, a doll can't break if it's dropped on the grass". I'm sort of practical I suppose <___<"

Jason Voorhees - If you were gonna make Halloween costumes for your dolls (or if you plan to!) what costumes would you make?

If I were going to make Halloween costumes they would all be zombies with fake blood and gashing wounds XD
And I'd make stupid photostories about their everyday troubles as zombies. It's not easy being a zombie.

Chucky (possessed doll) - Have you ever been scared of dolls or a certain doll? Be honest!

I once read some of those creepy stories on DoA and I had to put my dolls back in their boxes for a while ^^" For me, the creepiest dolls are those who can talk (HATE those creepy ones that goes "MAMA!" when you accidentally touch them), I'll shit bricks. oO"

I'll tag:
Anne
and anyone else who hasn't done this yet ;D

  1. Yay, I'm so glad to see you posted it :D It was great to read about you ^^

    Lol, I think we're many who can relate to becoming better at creating characters :P I had so superficial characters back then too. But we learned from it, didn't we? ;)

    PW are evil with their beautiful dolls and great customer service! *shakes fist*

    You want a Dollits Hyun?? XD I absolutely love Dollits!

    What a scary dream X_X Good thing it wasn't real!

    1. Hehe thank you dear! *^^*

      Yeah, it's just awesome to have a visual version of a fragment of your imagination :)
      I feel its easier to imagine a full character when I have a doll.

      Yes! PW are always aiming at mah money! XD

      I want him! But I'd really love him in a tan or grey version to go with my crew. But once I get a job he is coming home to me XD I love that I can follow the Dollits sculptor on Flickr *^^*

      Yeah, I talked about it with my mom afterwards and she suggested I locked my room while we had the family visit. XD

  2. Great to see you posting this! :D It's so fun

    I agree with you on PW... in fact they are supposed to ship 2 dolls out to me this week @o@ It will be my first time to play with the new FoC bodies though~ but I'm very excited to receive them and paint them!

    That dream! :D and I adore that idea about zombie photo stories :D :D
    Those types of baby dolls really creep me out too, especially with little child/baby voices D: creeeepy! Reminds me of playing Fatal Frame and encountering those child ghosts ToT

    1. Thanks dear <3 it really is! :D

      Oh! 2 dolls!!?? Congratulations \*^0^*/
      I totally understand your excitement! Can't wait to see pictures *__*

      Yeah, those baby dolls are the worst! Who thought that was a good idea? I guess kids are not as scared of them...? oO"

  3. Woo you did it, I was constantly stlking you hoping you would do the tag XD!!!

    My Supia Rosy fell on the grass once and her nose tinted green XD! Luckily for me it was my first face up on her and I didn't like it so I re did it and it was much better lol

    I love PW dolls too, and their customer service and their photos and everything :D

    I was super fan of Heliot for years until once day I realized his lips were kinda botox-y and I stopped wanting him instantly XD Somehow I like the dream ripper version way more, to the point I really want it XD

    1. Haha thank you, gosh <3

      Oh dear. But lucky it was only on the faceup. Noses have a tendency of being exposed to a beating once in a while though XD I've seen so many dolls fall on their face ^^" poor things.

      Yeah, they've made so much awesome stuff since they released the LE vamp and elf Tristans. *__*

      Haha yeah, I don't think he is much special anymore. I guess that is how ones taste changes. But if I'd bought him then, I'm sure I'd still love him XD I just not need him anymore ^^
      But the dream ripper version is super cool, so I get why you like it :D
