6) What was the very first BJD you saw?
I don't know. Some girl was carrying one around at the Missouri Botanical Gardens Japanese festival many years ago...She was wearing a kimono and had the doll... I got all excited when I saw it, it had black hair and some kind of goth outfit on complete with Frankenstein. I took one look and thought "Alex!!" even though he's blond XD
I'd failed so hard making him an action figure I thought I could do a doll, but she was less than helpful. I didn't get all up in her face or anything so I have no idea why she was such a bitch, but I asked her (nicely) where the doll came from she said "The internet!" and stormed off. :\
I never met her but have long since found out who she was, and apparently she's just that mean to everyone XD
Since I found them my self a year later, I count Alex as the first doll I ever saw.
