2014: A year about dolls

So what was my plans for 2014 and how did I keep them?
I'd like to point out that I might have forgotten something important but this is how I remember the year...

I entered this year with these dolls:
Volks SD16 Ruby
Volks SD16 Garnet
Elfdoll Ruru NS head
Elfdoll Ruru Tan head
Volks Yo-Tenshi Yuh
Volks YoSD Kanon
Volks YoSD Anne
Ringdoll Zombie Sol

During the year I realized for sure that the Yo-size is too small for me. Anything smaller than SD is just too small. But for some very strange reason little Yuh is just perfect for me. So she survived another year here. She might be the doll who's been with me for the longest time now (since April 2011).
YoSD Kanon was sold to a good friend of mine.

In the beginning of the year I received the body for my Tan Elfdoll Ruru head.
I had found a Volks SD16 Ruby for sale and bought it to steal the body for Ruru to make a hybrid. When it arrived I discovered I liked the faceup on the new Ruby much more than I liked the faceup on my old Ruby. So in the end Ruru got the body from my old Ruby and new Ruby became my Marina.

I realized that NS is becoming a little too light for me so I sold two of my NS dolls: Garnet and Ruru (and SDGr Tae who was here only a few months). Most was sold to some of my friends.
Years ago I sold my first doll (a Dolkot Leaf WS) because white skin was getting too light for me. I've noticed my taste in dolls change ever so slightly and now NS is getting to light too.

In the beginning of the year I bought a Twigling Ingenieuse and she arrived in the autumn. She's pretty but I still haven't done anything with her. I hope to finish her in the new year. Or I might sell her if she ends up not working for me but I hope to give her a chance first.

I found a Twigling Ylisande doll and an Iplehouse nYID Asa. Both were the same light brow colour and I switched their bodies. I'm really excited about the Ylisande head on the nYID body. It's a nice hybrid. I might get her a EID body eventually but for now she's just great as my pirate queen.
Iplehouse Asa on the Twigling body is not my most favourite doll and honestly I might end up selling her in 2015 but let's see. I might just try and find Asa an Iplehouse body instead. I just don't really like the old Twigling body.

On new years eve last year I bought an Iplehouse Bibiane nYID PG doll. She's very great as my Princess Sienna character but I've been thinking about changing the head for a Doria head.
Not completely sure about the head exchange. I might just consider Doria for another character in the future instead.

This year saw the return of Peakswoods to my collection (I once had an MSD). But this year I got a grey skinned Dlight. When I saw the pictures of the doll I really like her. Within a few days I had a character in mind and I knew I had to try to get her and I was lucky to win the auction. It was a charity auction and I was very happy to participate.

I also had an Iplehouse Fantasy Doria head. I bought the head 2nd hand and after a few months sold it to a friend.
I also got Elfdoll Vivien and Hazy heads from Elfdoll's big sale. They were sold after a few months.
Also a Volks SD16 Ami Ayase was here for just a few months. The body was used as a hybrid and the head went to an other friend of mine.

So I'll end 2014 with:
Volks YoTenshi Yuh
Volks SD16 Ruby (+ extra Ruby head)
Elfdoll tan Ruru SD16 hybrid
Peakswoods Dlight
Ringdoll Zombie Sol
Iplehouse Bibiane
Iplehouse Asa Twigling hybrid
Twigling Ylisande nYID hybrid
Twigling Ingenieuse

  1. It was interesting to read about your year. I remember a lot of the things you've mentioned. I'm so glad you got the Twigling girls, since it got me interested in them too. :D
    I hope 2015 will be another great dollie year for us all!

    1. I'm impressed that you remember the things that happened to my doll family :)
      I'm very happy you like Twigling's dolls too. I think her dolls are often underappreciated but they are really very pretty.
      I really hope so too :D
