How do you choose names for your dolls?
I like it when they have a positive and a significant/suitable meaning; plus, they must sound pleasantly (to me:). Exceptionally, with Marcelinek - partly derived from my own name :) And Stacey - bc a tribute to one of my fav guitarists :)
What’s the first thing that draws you to a head sculpt?
The turned up, delicate noses and the melancholic/middle-european-like eye shape, bc my OCs are all Brit/French. Also, I like when they have kissable-looking lips - any shape, though :) My biggest love are their fauny ears (so partly floppy and not as sturdy as those of elves;)
What are your doll plans for this year?
To get the Richmond-Delacroix family together :)
How do you look at your dolls? Are they just dolls to you or do you treat them as something more than that?
A replacement for children :) At least I’m honest about it… Cute, little people, living next to me, who need some care, and kisses on the foreheads. Nonetheless, if I am to sell one for some reason - I have no problems with the attachment to the pieces of resin. I am attached, however, to the OCs I created:)
Do you normally order dolls with face-ups or without face-ups?
I simply don’t have money to buy them with face-ups, or if already - I wipe them out bc I want to make them myself and customisation helps me to bond with them:)
Do you think your characters resemble you (personality, quirks or appearance)? Which ones and how so?
Vicky is my male minime. As simple. Other than that - they’re all to some extent similar to me - at least as rehards their personalities. Though, Stacey will be the actual female minime too :)
When you’re not playing with your dolls, are they naked or clothed?
Always clothed :) But usually just in some basic stuff - tops, trousers etc :)
Do you keep your doll boxes?
Either their carrying cases or their shelf (that can be locked). I keep the original boxes only in case i’d need to re-sell them in future:)
