I’ve been in the hobby actively since late 2006. During the years my taste and priorities when choosing a new mold have changed repeatedly. The longer I’ve been in the hobby the more confident I feel about my own personal preferences and style and this has enabled me to
hopefully make the doll crew and its characters a bit more unchanging than what it used to be.
The crew currently consists of:
Fairyland MNF Chloe (Aen), Unoa Quluts Elder Sister Ange (Avi), Unoa Quluts 1.5 Cerasus Lusis (Dei), Lillycat Cerisedolls Ombre (Ein), Bluefairy PF Strawberry Didi (Hei), Fairyland PKF Luna (Noë), Bluefairy TF Sweet Day May v (Rie), Doll Chateau Alberta (Sae), SOOM MD Dolomi r (Säe), Bluefairy PF Marine Scout Didi (Ume), Doll Chateau BB Ada (???) Arriving: Bimong Narae N402 (???), SOOM MD Sweet Witch (Fuy)
During the spare time I get for myself after work and other responsibilities I try to be creative. Doing things myself and improving my skills, whether it’s crafting, painting, customizing or photography, has been a big part of the hobby and indeed for me the main appeal in these dolls in general. It is like a collective channel that allows us hobbyists to be creative in so many ways.
I don’t tend to create strong, well-thought characters or background stories for my dolls. They are purely chosen and ‘built’ for aesthetic purposes. In this way I am probably partly also a collector even though I always try to put my personal touch in all of them and some of them might even have stronger personality features to inspire the style of their face-up or clothing. At times the ‘personalities’ and ‘stories’ the dolls portray may vary even between individual photoshoots so occasionally it can be challenging to keep up, apologies. I do give names to all my dolls however.
