Colour me (pleasantly) confused

So apparently there are people out there, who seem to enjoy seeing my dolls.

I always imagined it was only me, who liked my dolls, (and my friends because I told them to like my dolls). Lately I've come to realize this belief is wrong; there are actually strangers, who like my dolls!

It started when I found a new group on facebook called BJD Addicts. It's a large group with over 7000 members, so there's a lot pictures and a lot of discussion. It seemed like a nice place, so I posted a "I'm new here and this is one of my dolls"-post there with a picture of Scorpio. That post has over 250 likes and 18 comments. I was (and still am) surprised by the welcome both me and Scorpio got. So I posted a new photo of Voodoo and Scorpio. It wasn't that great a photo actually; no background, bad lighting, Voodoo as a WIP (you can even see the putty holding his eyes in place!), Scorpio looks a bit weird. Still the photo has over 260 likes and 21 comments.
On the Danish site the picture of Voodoo and Scorpio got more than 20 likes and 3 comments, which is also a lot considering we are about 70 members.
Also on Instagram both photos got about 50-60 likes, which is a lot of likes for me.
I'm still amazed by it all.
Also for both photos the comments were positive! I have a fear someone will say something bad about my dolls, because I know it will hurt me. I don't really know how to deal with criticism, so every time I post a picture or a post I get a stomach ache. This is also the reason why I don't post pictures that often.

Of course I love both of these dolls, but I just didn't actually think others did too. I though Scorpio was too strange as a hybrid to be liked by another than me, and I though no one would like a dark tan Venitu, as there are so few of him in that colour.

These are the two pictures:
Scorpio finally got an outfit that I really like. It's from Iplehouse.

Voodoo's using Nathaniel's hair and pants, but I hope to have his own soon. The vest is new and just perfect to the imagine I have of him, but I need to fix it a bit. I'm starting to fall in love with Voodoo myself :P I'm so happy I panicked and bought Venitu when I did.
Fun fact, Scorpio is actually the tallest of the two (when wearing the Vesuvia resin-shoes), but it fits very well with my characters.

  1. So now you see, its not a lie when we're all in awe over your amazing dolls! I'm glad you've had these positive experiences. You have NOTHING to fear. If anyone would ever criticize your dolls, be assured, it will be because of envy and nothing else. <3
    I can't wait till we live together and I get to drool over your dolls on a daily basis XD'

    1. You know I love you, right? Thanks for always having my back and being there for me.
      I need my Kurisu to live closer to me! Can't we just move in together now?

  3. Your dollies are sooo amazing, their styling and tan skin are so gorgeous, I hope you can update photos here more often in the future too~~~
