I collect Asian ball-jointed dolls. At the moment, all of my dolls are from Korean companies Crobidoll and SWITCH. I honestly don’t see that changing anytime soon but it’d be nice to have one of those animal DEAR MINE dolls one day.
Here’s the list of dolls I currently own. Bold means the doll has been ordered but hasn’t yet arrived. Italics means that I have that head, but the head doesn’t have its own body. Those are generally called “floating heads” and sometimes for photos, I’ll just put one of the floaters on another body of the same skin tone/manufacturer.

I have a doll-centric Instagram account, but I don’t use it all that much right now. Part of it is I don’t have a whole lot of different clothes and accessories for them yet, so I get bored with taking a bunch of photos that look the same. Another part of it is I don’t have a great camera to use for them yet. I’ve only been using my phone up until now and it’s so hard to capture their real looks with that.
I also really need to suede my dolls’ joints so it’s easier to pose them, but I haven’t gotten around to doing that yet. Soooo at the moment most of the creative aspect of my dolls is just…thinking about them? Planning out their elaborate backstories?
