As some of you know, waaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2010 I bought a Saint from Dollshe. The Damn thing took more than year to get here and if I'm honest, I don't like him. Part of it's the wait, part of it was the horror that was dealing with Dollshe, part of it is Saint. I love him in other peoples photos, not so much in person. He's so....blah. It's probably just mine, like he needs a new faceup or wig or both or something, but whatever it is, it's there and I can't overlook it.
I even bought him a new head intending to sell the Saint head (no point in trying to sell the whole doll, I'd get nothing for him. He's WS and the market is and is about to be seriously flooded with Dollshe resin), a Leekeworld Kyou in WS, that I thought might be a good replacement....I like LW molds, they're getting rid of their basics and this is my only chance to make sure I don't want one so I jumped. It's not here yet and already I'm having worries. Mainly because I started lurking in the DS discussion thread again. Looking at them made me reluctant to get rid of mine. Why are they so pretty when everyone else has them!! Normally my dolls are my favorites of their molds...but not Saint. :P I don't even call him Israfel, because I don't feel it. He's just not.
Kyou might work. He might. He might not have a chance. Stupid Dollshe went and released their old molds today. So I went to their website...almost completely on a whim and before I realized what I was doing...and bought a Hound head. >.<
Arg. I mean ARG.
To be fair, in the last year of looking at DS in an attempt to get excited for and then bond with my Saint I realized the only mold I really really love of DS is Hound, and that his small smile would work better for Is than the expressionless look of Saint. But still. Did I really just buy a head KNOWING full well that it will be another freaking year before I get it?! DID I?? I have the dumb.
Yeah. I am going to try really hard not to whine about the wait. Last time I signed on for a 5-6 month wait and got 14. This time I know better, it's taking at least a year, probably more, so the shock isn't going to kill me. In the mean time, I have the Saint and Kyou heads to play with as Israfel, who is as much to blame himself as a character as the dolls are since I can't quite decide who he should be - or none of this would have happened in the first place. I won't sell either of them...Both heads will difficult to get again if I regret it, and it's easier to just keep them in the head box (or on the body...which will need a head for the year+ he'll be waiting to be a Hound) than it will be to want them back after they're gone.
Feh. WHY MY DOLLS SO DIFFICULTS??
Have some Alex. The only doll I don't tear my hair out over on a regular basis (anymore D: )
You know, Kara Klum - my favorite mold on the planet - is totally expressionless too. So why do I love him and not the Saint?! D: I dun know.
