I went to a doll meet today (40 scary minutes on the freeway D:), and it was an experience. The breakdown was like 90% BJD or Dolfie Dream, 8% azone, 2% other. My dolls were the 2% other. I brought Finley (my Chantilly Lace custom Cadence Majorette), Elowyn (Cherie Babette), and Mikan (one of my liccas), and I kind of felt like the lone stamp collector in a large group of coin collectors. 😄 I felt like I showed up to the wrong meet up.
The people at the meet were really nice and welcoming. I just felt a bit out of my element. My favorite doll I saw today wasn’t a bjd, but an Azone Kiki pop!
Kind of tempted by the azone kikipop, I’m not going to lie. Less tempted by these ladies:
I prefer Blythe because of the scale, and just how not serious they are. They’re lower maintenance and they look like toys (in varying degrees depending on how customized it is). I do have a fascination of bjds and how much work goes into them, but (for now) it’s an “admire from afar” type of thing for me.
