I have this tendency of obsessing over very niche things for an indeterminable amount of time. As quickly as I’m struck with the urge to collect or DIY, the compulsion sometimes flat out drops dead or slowly fizzles into nothingness. My last massive scale hobby was cosmetic collecting and reviewing, which was fun but very costly (this went on for about 3 years). From there, I became a child of the Sunwell, playing in the middle of the Mists of Pandaria expansion (I think I’ve been playing for about 2 years). I am currently an avid crocheter and yarn enthusiast (8 months in counting).
I am now hardcore lemming dolls – Blythe, Pullip, and Ever After High dolls.
This doll thing kind of hit me like a bus – one day I’m browsing Instagram, when I stumble upon these Ever After High dolls. I had so many questions – “What are these dolls about?” “Who collects these dolls?” “What does one do with dolls?”
Then I remembered that my boyfriend mentioned that his friends have Dollfie Dream dolls and other BJDs (I balk at the price of the dollfies to an extent that I refuse to think about obtaining one). So my next steps were to look up popular doll brands by searching #blythe and #pullip (blythes more than pullip). I don’t know why I prefer the blythe over the pullip… I think I like the exaggerated head and the changing eyes and that luxe mane of hair.
Also, on some level, I think that maybe my wanting a high end doll has to do with my not having an American Girl doll in elementary school – the American Girl doll was such a status symbol during my childhood (Psychology!). … But at that age, I also found dolls to be SUPER creepy (Thank’s Chucky.)
So I guess what I’m trying to say is that on this blog I will be rambling about the things that occupy my mind palace. In any case, I hope to update this blog frequently, and I hope that you folks in the interwebs enjoy.
