This thread is now open! Though I will continue some construction, I will fill in my own introductory post:

UPDATED! After 2 years... haha

Hello! Please call me: Spore =D
About you: I'm a 24 year-old university teacher with some spare time and money, perfect for this hobby lol
How you got into the hobby: I really only got into the hobby this year, after looking for something fun to spend my money on other than comics. I have always been a big collector of action figures and other trinkets, and love sewing, so this kind of just fell into my life.
Your dolls:

User Image.
Spore (Crobidoll Jun), Paige (Souldoll Star), Kess (RS Li), Nora (Slinkyneko Jr. Borry on AE female MSD body), Spencer (Luts KDF Nana), Maddy (Lati Green Gr. Up Lea)
I also have an unnamed, blank 55cm obitsu who is a work in progress!

Favourite aspect of the hobby: I love sewing and creating looks for my dolls, but my favourite part is probably just meeting others and their dolls. So fun!

Hi Spore biggrin
I'm here *sparkle sparkle* with my little family XD

I like how this thread looks like, it's neater than the other one c:
I shall use the form~

Hello! Please call me: Neo
About you: I'm weird?.. jk. I like to be creative~. I'm interested in Japanese fashionstyles. I love history, and I also like reading *adores books*, writing and drawing~
How you got into the hobby: Read once about them in a magazine (AniWay). I found it interesting but none of the pictures shown in it attracted me. Then a friend showed me the site of LUTS, calling them LUTS dolls (Then I told her they were BJD :3), and I fell in love with Kid Delf Hodoo. I didn't understand the whole delf thing because I wasn't familiar with BJD sizes.
Later on, I noticed that some Lolita's -interested in that fashionstyle c: - had BJD and I loved their looks. I asked an online (lolita) friend if she could give me some sites for them. I got a link to Think Pink, Den of Angels and the BJD Cafe.. and here I am XD My first doll was a DollZone Hid, my second -and dream- doll was a LUTS Kid Delf Hodoo, and my third is a hybrid; a DollZone body and a Soom Aphan head.
Your dolls: Hyde Duprine - DollZone Hid. Asaro Murakami - LUTS Kid Delf Hodoo. Torin Rayn Viridis - DollZone body, Soom Aphan head
User Image
Date Received: Hyde -> 10th of September, 2010. Asaro -> 18th of February, 2011. Torin -> some time in april >/////< will have to look that up~ I think around 20th of April..
Personality/Backstory: I'll just write their personality here. I think the background story would make it way too long and not everything would be suitable for kids that might visit this thread so >//////<
Hyde -> Mean, cold, arrogant, only sweet to the ones he loves.
Asaro -> Sweet, shy, always struggling with himself mentally~..
Torin -> Sweet, shy, insecure, low self-esteem.
Favourite aspect of the hobby: Fumbling with my dolls, making them stuff, ehm.. this forum XD just looking at them and admiring their beauty~.. it's hard to explain c:

Sparkly Kitten

Hello! Please call me: Finlet
About you: Not much to say, I'm in California, stay at home Mom and wife. I like strange things especially creepy and cute.
How you got into the hobby: I have loved dolls my whole life and I found bjd's first on Ernya.
Favourite aspect of the hobby: Sewing!!!
Your dolls:
User Image
Name: Arlette
Sculpt: Youth Dollmore Eve Aileen
Date Received: Christmas '10
Personality/Backstory: Arlette woke up with amnesia and instead of asking who she was or where she's from, she just moves forward with her life. She's very versatile and "tries on" many differing personalities since she doesn't know what hers is anyway. She's genuine every time she mimics somebody, and she finds people fascinating.
Name: Eithna (pronounced ETH-na)
Sculpt: DoD Isis frankendolly in progress
Date Received: 7-20-11
Personality/Backstory: She's mischevious vivacious and friendly. Eithne is the carousel mechanic for the circus.
Name: Illyana, nickname Bad Wolf
Sculpt: Dollstown Elysia CH hybrid
Date Received: 9-10-11
Personality/Backstory: Illyana was raised in high society, but she couldn't tolerate the pretentiousness of it all, so she ran away to join the circus. There, she embraced her untameable side and found the acceptance she always longed for. Her personality is feirce, confrontational, and rebellious, but she is also intensely loyal and loves without expecting anything in return. She is a mother figure to anyone that she perceives as being outcast or rejected.

Ah, Fin, I really liked your description of Arlette's personality. Deep, and it kind of depressed me a little. I hope Arlette is happy!

Oh, she's fine, because she loves discovering new things, and she likes everybody. She captures a piece of every personality that she comes across.
