List your Crew!
See here.

Who was your first doll? Do you still own him, her, or it?
My first doll was an SD13 boy body in white skin, purchased from Y!JA. He had no head. He was fondly dubbed "Headless," and lived on the mantlepiece in the living room for about five months. I had planned to get an F-17 (then F-29) head for him. But then Volks released Kohya, and he was a better for for Darryl's character, so Headless was sold off to fund the purchase of Kohya in the Dolpa After Event. I don't regret selling him.

Who is your favorite doll?
It changes depending on my mood. Right now I'm very focused on my Lahela, Tsura Petkanov, and on my Juri '05, whom I'm turning into an interpretation of the Caterpillar from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.

Which doll do you hope or plan to buy next?
That's up in the air. I have a wish list, but they're not really prioritized.

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?
Twigling Ingenue. Not sure about skintone, but I'd probably settle on one pretty quickly if I had to spend the money right now. And spare cash would go into accessories for her.

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 magically convince Doll Chateau and Soom to collaborate and cast a doll in a pale grey resin with just a hint of a blue undertone, with a Soom Amber head and the Doll Chateau skinny adult female body. It would be a gift for my friend Jae.

Are you currently waiting on any dolls, heads, or bodies? Wow, that's rare.

Do any of your dolls seem to like you to the point that they are infatuated with you?
The fuck? No. Not even. My dolls are representations of characters. Those characters exist within my imagination. So that would be being infatuated with me. I'm a cocky bastard, but I'm not that narcissistic.

Do any of your dolls seem to dislike or even hate you?
I'm sensing a disturbing theme here.

Who’s your most expensive doll at the time you purchased them, not counting items you bought separately for them?
If we're talking pure resin here, I've probably got the most money into Darryl, especially if you count both version 1.0 and his current (2.0) incarnation. Darryl 1.0 (Kohya Darryl) ran me about $1400, between his body ($800) and his head ($550-$600ish). Darryl's current self (Asa) has a $200 head and a $600 body, plus $175 hands. So Darryl 2.0's resin is clocking in at $975. It helps that his head wasn't limited, unlike Darryl 1.0's.

Who’s the least expensive doll you own?
Well, Dollmore Banji only cost $198, so probably my Banji. But the Mirodoll/Lost Angel body that Jian Yuan's $600 Seimei head is on only cost me $151 after shipping, so if his head hadn't been so pricy, that Jian Yuan 1.0 would have been in the running, too.

Is there a limit to what you’d spend on a doll?
Yes, but it's "reasonable amount," so it's not really clearly defined.

Which doll did you wait for the longest for so far?
I don't remember. Probably my custom Nobility Doll Muscular 60cm Woman bodies. They were over one year between order and shipping.

Which doll had the shortest wait so far?
Iplehouse YID Gentle Cocori, maybe? They shipped her the day after I ordered her.

Who’s the biggest doll you own?
It used to be the EID guys, but I sold all of them. Probably Davlin, my Heliot/Amber hybrid. He's REALLY tall.

Who’s the smallest doll you own?
Dollmore Banji. I used to have a PukiPuki, but even though it was technically shorter, Banji is still more delicately sculpted.

Got any floating heads? If yes, how likely are they to receive bodies anytime soon?
Yes, and no clue. See the doll list.

Got any floating bodies?
Heck yes.

Do you have any extra, unclaimed pairs of eyes? How many if so?
Oh, hell yeah. I'm not going to bother counting. I make eyes, so...more than fifty, less than a hundred? Maybe?

Do you have any extra, unclaimed wigs? How many if so?
Let's put it this way: My wig drawer became so full, I had to get a bigger one.

Anything you’ve said “never” to in the hobby that you later gave in to?

Do you own dolls that aren’t BJDs?
Yep. I collect kokeshi dolls.

What was your last doll-related purchase?
Two beetle-and-peroxide cleaned raccoon skulls.

What do you expect your next doll-related purchase to be?
Not sure.

What was the last doll-related thing to arrive to you by mail?
Some hand-dyed silk ribbon.

What was the last doll-related thing you purchased in person?
An embroidery hoop. I immediately disassembled it, gave the outside ring to my cat, and began sanding the heck out of the inside ring.

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?

*Snickers.*Oh... I love questions that lead to Axis I disorders! It is one thing to play pretend, but quite another to answer that in all seriousness. I assure you, some will answer in seriousness and what an interesting concept to explore. I don't mind crawling into other people's heads and seeing what makes them tick. Not at all.

...And listen to you curse. *clucks tongue.* Where's my soap?
