Ok, so I realize I just posted, but I keep thinking about this so I needed to do another one real quick.
I'm wondering everyone's opinions on body-sharing (two heads, same body, different characters for the non-bjd peeps. If there ever were any). Do you do it? If so, how does it work for you?
I've been unable to do this myself the entire time I've been collecting. I've tried a couple times; it seems like a good idea and it would cut down on the number of full dolls I've got laying around....but it never worked out. First I tried it with Alex, and it really wasn't even body sharing because it was always him, just different heads. That never worked because I'd always miss the Alex who was in the box.
And it was too difficult for me to share other characters because what if I needed them both at the same time? Or I needed different bodies?? Or something?
So I've never body-shared. I think I bought a few heads intending too, but failed and bought them bodies.
Well I'm thinking it might be time to start doing this for real now.
I bought that Migidoll Ell head to be Marcus (third time is a charm, right??), and since Marcus is an OC he gets priority - and his body back.
My Volks Heath head has been on it for months now as Gambit. Marcus and Gambit (and Gambit used to be Marcus heh heh - aren't BJDs fun?) are nowhere near the same universe and will never cross paths and so I feel like the sharing thing could work. It was going to be temporary...but I really don't want anymore SDs laying around, so now I'm wondering if I could make it permanent.
The other reason I was thinking of this is because there is a head I found that has yet to be released that would make a great Shae, and I would eventually love to have Theresa back and possibly in a different doll....so that would be two more SDs.
At this point the only two dolls I would consider selling are Jubilee and Wolverine. Just because I've not "bonded" to either one of them....
But Jubilee is a Delf type 1 and could easily lend her body out to another head...for Theresa (I still have Theresa's original body, but it's now Sage, and has the neck-key, which will never come out again lol)
And Shae is supposed to be a big guy, and if that head fits on the Granado body....Yeah. If I can get over my mental block on body-sharing I could get their heads and not worry about the bodies. Marcus and Shae should never have to be photographed together so they'd be a great choice to share. That would be all the SDs I think I want in the future unless I get Sage's twin, and I bet I could share him too - with...someone. Or get a cheaper body for him so if he doesn't work out it's not a huge loss. I also might want to get my DK Aqua a body, but he's so white I don't know if I can get Sage's twin in a color to match....so I don't know if that will ever happen.
All of this seems great in theory lol Maybe it'll work in practice...*hopes*
