Does anyone else feel iffy when companies start to rip off characters from Disney or other known movies shows/characters? I always wonder if they acquired the proper licensing for it. The recent Migidoll Jack Skellington is a good example.

Volks did this too. :|

Volks always gets licensing and usage rights for character dolls, though. All the anime DDs are made with permission, and the Rapunzel and Jack dolls were a collaboration with Disney Japan for their anniversary event.

That awkward moment when you come up with a kick-ass background story for one of your dolls and the story is that they’re a doll.

This is the first time I’ve even bothered to come up with a background, too….

Augh, why do you do this, Taobaotrends?

I paid for that order over a week ago, and double checked with your rep that all the items were in stock

And now some of the important items are no longer in stock, a week after I sent payment and you confirmed that you’d place the order, and now you can’t order them.

Whyyyyyyyyy
?

Seriously, though, it’s been a week since I paid. If some of the items are out of stock, I hope they’ll give us a refund for those pieces, because they’re not of equal value. We’re splitting shipping cost—I don’t want to end up paying more on the shipping when the bigger part of the order isn’t even mine.

Anonymous asked: you dont know what its like to be poor you classist bithc. fuck off cunt

Who are you, and what did I say to you? Also, I think I mentioned trying to survive off of a part-time minimum wage job. If I didn’t, yeah. Not exactly making a living wage here…

Excuse me for not being chock full of cash to be able to stay in your precious hobby. It must be nice having a decent paying job or having things handed down to you on a silver platter. I hate people telling me to not be in this hobby because I don’t have tons of money to buy a new doll. Excuse me for being too “poor”. Fucking assholes.

~Anonymous

I’m scraping away just barely with minimum wage and can still afford dolls. If I couldn’t afford them, though, do you think I’d still collect? No. If I want a new doll, I have to sell a doll first. Sometimes I sell a doll and then a few other things I can live without. You know what’s funny, though? I know a few other hobbyists in a similar financial situation. I haven’t heard them bitching about how it’s other people’s fault they “can’t” have dolls. 

Nobody has ever ragged on me or anyone else I know just for being “poor.” The closest I’ve heard is “if you can’t afford to buy a new doll, it probably isn’t a good idea to buy one.” 

Maybe I’m just an isolated case?

I don’t know how to make these eyes not look funny >3< Anyway, her wig showed up a few days ago and I never took pictures. It’s more of a really dark plum in person, but phone camera/personal inability to take good pictures, blah blah blah. Now to wait for that Taobao order to come in so I can have her purple dress and eyes that will (hopefully) be the right ones and everything. Yay, waiting…(Oh yeah, and I put a down payment on a body from Resinsoul for her about a week ago, so maybe in a few weeks she won’t be a floater, either. I should learn that when I say I’ll wait, I probably won’t.) width=

So I’ve noticed something

There are lots of companies popping up with anime-styled dolls recently. I think that’s starting to look like the newest BJD trend. I guess it’s a good option if you prefer resin over vinyl (I’m one of those people) but they’re not really my type of doll, it seems. 

Also (unrelated to that) I just looked at the Fairyland A La Carte system to check if the Moe boys could be put on the regular-sized bodies and WOW. I literally thought there were only, like, 6 Minifees other than the new ones. Wow. 

Guys, wow. 

I have never seen or even thought there was such thing as a Minifee Carl or Kyle. Apparently some of these mystery dolls have been around since 2006, and there’s not a single owner photo to be found.

There are 32 Minifee heads and I literally only thought there were maybe six because I only ever see the same ones over and over again.
