Who was your first doll? Do you still own him, her, or it?
My first one was Lynette, a Bluefairy Tiny Fairy Emilie.  Her default wig was a light blonde Bang Sauvage, but I had ordered a red one at the same time.  So she was meant to be a redhead from the beginning.

Who is your favorite doll?
I really love Georgiana (Bluefairy Tiny Fairy Limited G Jasmine WS).  She was a grail doll for me and I couldn't believe a full set came up that hadn't been jacked up in price!  She's so gorgeous.  I smile every time I take her out of her box!

Which doll do you hope or plan to buy next?
There are three Bluefairy sculpts I have my eye on.  I want a Robin girl, preferably WS (white-skin).  I'd like a Kyle boy. And I'd like a Somang girl, also preferably WS.  (LOL: My husband wants to note that he thinks I should get a Sarang.  He thinks they're cute, but I think they look kinda derpy.  Maybe if a WS version came up? IDEK).  Anyway, I'm at the point where there's not many more dolls I want.

Quick! You've instantly got $800 and must choose a doll to spend it on right now or it's gone forever! Who do you pick?
Oh, a WS Robin girl!  Might be able to fit in a NS Kyle boy at that price.  Gotta love MSDs--best value for your money!

Quick! You've instantly got enough money for any one and must choose a doll to spend it on right now or it's gone forever, but this time you have to buy the doll for someone else! Who gets the dolly, and what do you get them?
I'd get a Dollfie Dream for my husband.  He thinks they're cute, but doesn't want to get into the hobby since he has so many other expensive interests.

Are you currently waiting on any dolls, heads, or bodies?

Do any of your dolls seem to like you to the point that they are infatuated with you?
I don't think of my dolls in that way.

Do any of your dolls seem to dislike or even hate you?
See above.  I do joke around a lot about poor Luca, who ends up in girly wigs and frilly clothes, even though he's a boy!

Who's your most expensive doll at the time you purchased them, not counting items you bought separately for them?
Daphne (Blossom Louisa V).  She came with an extra set of high-heeled feet, which along with her frou-frou default dress ran up the cost.  I need to get those high-heeled feet/shoes up for sale.  I don't like them and there's no need for them to languish here unused.

Who's the least expensive doll you own?
Kasumi (the Obitsu tiny).  I wanted to try a tiny doll to see if I liked them, and Obitsu is an inexpensive way of doing it, plus I can keep her by my computer and not worry about if the cats knock her over, since she's vinyl.

Is there a limit to what you'd spend on a doll?
If I go over $400 on a doll, I get nervous.  But I take into consideration whether a full set is involved or if it is a WS doll, which I prefer but only gets limited release.  On the second-hand market, I will NOT pay more than the doll originally went for, and will shamelessly bargain doll a doll based on condition/age.  Some sellers have this strange delusion that dolls do not depreciate over time. 

Which doll did you wait for the longest for so far?
Ciaran and Kaj, my two Luts boys.  It took nearly 3 months for them.

Which doll had the shortest wait so far?
Chauncey arrived within a week of ordering, and that's including a face-up!

Who's the biggest doll you own?
Probably Daphne (Louisa V) since she has the high heels, LOL?  Most of my dolls are roughly the same size.  Makes it much easier to switch out clothes/wigs.

Who's the smallest doll you own?
Lily.  But she's a cat!  The smallest human doll is Kasumi.  I found after getting her that I really don't like the teeny-tiny sized dolls.  I'm keeping her around though, to hang out with me at my computer desk.  But I'm not getting any more that sized.

Got any floating heads? If yes, how likely are they to receive bodies anytime soon?
No.  I'm too anal to keep an extra head around.  My mind would get fixated on getting it a body RIGHT AWAY.  I was actually eligible to get the Luts Winter Head this year because I got Ciaran and Kaj at that time, but I asked if they could just send me extra shoes (a gift from a lower level) instead.  Which they did.  They're a good company.

Got any floating bodies?
No, see above.

Do you have any extra, unclaimed pairs of eyes? How many if so?
Whoa, a lot of them.  I keep the default acrylics in the doll boxes so I can put them in if I sell a doll.  Otherwise, I have a lot of glass eyes that have been retired since I'm mainly using urethane eyes now.  I want to sell them at the Dairyland Summer meet.

Do you have any extra, unclaimed wigs? How many if so?
I have many, many wigs.  A big part of the fun of this hobby is getting to switch out the hair, so each doll has a wig or three to choose from!

Anything you've said "never" to in the hobby that you later gave in to?
Originally, I was only going to get Bluefairy dolls.  But Kid Delf captured my imagination.  Most of the KDF dolls I have are used, though!

Do you own dolls that aren't BJDs?
Lots of plushies, a few rag dolls and a nice porcelain one that my mom gave me when I was a kid.

What was your last doll-related purchase?
Two pair of Enchanted Doll eyes.

What do you expect your next doll-related purchase to be?
No idea.  Probably more wigs, LOL?  I do have a weakness for them!

What was the last doll-related thing to arrive to you by mail?
Enchanted Doll eyes from an order a couple of month ago.  Really awesome!

What was the last doll-related thing you purchased in person?
Some doll furniture from a shop in San Antonio, which has since closed b/c the owner is retiring.

Not counting floating heads, floating bodies, and anything on layaway (paid off dolls count), how many dolls do you own?

The quiz is over! Any last words?
Whoa, I do have a lot of dolls, LOL!
