23) Is there a part of the BJD hobby that you dislike?
24) What about your favorite part of the hobby?
I don't have the strength to elaborate on this one, but in both cases? The people/community. It's both my favorite thing about BJDs and the part that makes me want to scream an throw things at my monitor.
and because I didn't want to answer those:
25) Have you ever modded a doll or had a doll modded by someone else?
Yes! I've modded lots of dolls! Some got minimal mods, some a little more drastic....I've done permanent and non-permanent mods.
I've also bought four modded dolls...sorta
Aishe (CP Delf Sleeping Vampire Breakaway - head only): Modded to have scars over his closed eyes. I'm 99% sure it's removable...but I'll never do it!
Whoa. Where did this gap come from?? I don't remember it being here yesterday?! D:
HopScotch (Soom Tan Human Afi - Head only): modded his eyes open more. I normally prefer not to buy permanently modded dolls, but this was done well and it made him so cute X3
Plus the head was really cheap! :D
James/Hanael (CP Delf Elf Chiwoo): oh was he a disaster...I didn't really buy him. It was a trade for an outfit I had for sale at a meet. I'd had the outfit up for awhile so I didn't feel like I really lost anything. In my head, he was free XD
He was broken, modded to have his twisty head back magnet on, and his neck hole modded to fit on any body with an shook (it's a mess in his poor head but you can't see from the outside and it actually works really well so I don't care). He had been sanded on his cheeks, forehead and nose at least, there were sandpaper scratches all over him that I had to get rid of. His nose is a totally different shape (I bet he had faceplanted) and he had pierced ears. And something is wrong with his mouth...it looked flattened on one side, like a miss with sandpaper had happened. I would have tried harder to fix that, but I didn't have anything to do it with...I do now though, so if I ever redo his faceup (barring damage, probably not gonna happen) I'll work on it.
Corpse (Unoa Sist sleeping FP): Corpse had issues. This FP was given to a friend of mine as payment for a faceup...it had a crazy faceup on it which we both knew I wouldn't want, so she went to wipe it for me...and found the poor thing horribly stained. HORRIBLY. I didn't think dolls could be that stained. It was awful...whoever did the faceup must not have sealed it at all before applying said faceup...and we found it was actually WS blushed to be NS XD
She sanded all over the FP to get the stain off, so I consider it modded. You can't tell at all, she did a great job! Corpse looks odd now though being WS on a NS body (hence the name XD)
