I don't have any new work to show since the last post yet as I haven't had the chance yet to go to my alternative face up location. We've had a blizzard, I worked on Saturday, been scrambling to get health insurance squared away for next year, and all around it's been very busy here!
Either way, I wanted to do a little personal post about my collection. I've been in the hobby since May 2011. Overall I've owned 26 dolls, but currently I own 15, and I have one on layaway.
Here's a collage of every doll I've ever owned, not counting event dolls I had no intention of ever keeping. I'm also only going by heads here as some dolls upgraded to different bodies. Greyscale means they've moved on, color means they are still in my collection.
Sculpts are as follows:
I'm very happy with my current collection, though my Angell-Studio Dina is going through a design overhaul (slowly). I already got her a new wig and different eyes, I just need to repaint her now without all those scars. I'm still deciding what to make her look like now. It's difficult as she doesn't have a set character.
And then here we have the breakdown of my collection by year. Man... my first year I sure was doll crazy! This year I was surprisingly restrained compared to the other 4 years.
I think it's because in part I became less impulsive and I made a conscious decision to manage my money better. I also switched jobs. I work two part time jobs now that I enjoy rather than one full time one that I despise. It's helped my mental state a lot.
The first doll I got this year was actually just a new FP that I swapped onto an existing doll's body, and the other was partially a gift from my SO. I only kept 1 doll from 2012, mainly because she was a birthday gift from my SO, but I've been debating getting her a new body.
That's all from me for now! Sorry, that was rather long winded.
