Just this morning, I was browsing eBay and I stumbled upon an Azone doll (NRFB) for a very good deal. I haven’t really considered owning an azone doll for a few reasons, the most important being that I kind of like things being matchy matchy. It would never just stop at ONE Azone doll.
One of my fears is that I’ll get swept up in a self-induced frenzy, with uninhibited purchases of dolls and doll clothing and accessories. Once the storm that is doll mania has passed over my highly impressionable, shopaholic self, I may be left with a tiny village of dolls in my room, all of which aren’t being displayed properly because my living space is small. Another scenario would be that I have to hide all of my dolls in my closet, because my family is judgmental and loud about what they think about my new hobby. Think Helga from Hey Arnold, and her bubblegum shrine in her closet. Except I’m Helga, and the shrine is a bunch of dolls.
My worries aren’t unfounded though. Let me present to you: Exhibit A – my makeup collection.
I was deep into makeup wearing, reviewing, collecting/buying, and swatching. I once tried to calculate exactly how much I spent on my collection, but it just made me feel really, REALLY sad. This trove of upper-mid end makeup kind of just sits on my dresser. I will occasionally wear a full face of makeup, but on a day to day basis I stick with my foundation, eye liner, and maybe lipstick. I think I will do a purge this weekend (:D I will post a post-purge photo of my stash). It’s just SO hard to let go of things that I could potentially use, but have not in the past year.
Right now, I have my neo blythe Finley, my middie Bryn (:D I settled on a name), and five Ever After High dolls (Thronecoming Cupid, basic Cupid, Basic Blondie Lockes, basic Hunter Huntsman and Ashlynn Ella). I gave Bryn a hair spa day and I whipped her up a dress :3.
The curlers are a bit big for my taste, but they definitely gave her hair some volume. Bryn’s hair is very poofy and cute!
I’m definitely entering the lottery for Spright Beauty, and I am currently waiting on a Pullip Dal from my friend. I received Finley in March I think, and Bryn in April. Mayyybeee I should slow down some. 😄
