Things Only Doll Collectors Would Understand…Really.

kentoomuch

They’re mostly simple expressions doll collectors hear in the course of their hobby activities – but imagine a non-doll collector eavesdropping while you and your doll friends sat around over a glass of wine at some chic bistro…imagine, indeed…

Is no one checking quality control anymore?

Wow…a friend just PM’d me with a NRFB BJD with a set of MIB FBR and 2 IT OOAK repaints for a steal…OMG!!!

Would it kill them to use something other than shower curtain fabric?

They would make beautiful girls if they just would make the move to plastic.

They’re beautiful earrings that won’t cause green ear.

It took hours to reroot her hair.

Are you more interested in Wendy before or after she got that little moustache?

It’s clearly been ripped off from that designer who ripped off Gaultier.

I can do splits, just let me know.

When I opened the package, her head was rolling around in the box.

The outfit number should match the number on her body.

Wonder Woman is supposed to have SILVER bracelets.

miniddos

Those accessories work perfectly for the 12inch girls.

Well, she told me to take it out of the box and let my daughter play with it – the nerve.

My Betsy exploded.

Excuse me?

I believe there must be some conspiracy to keep folks out of their inner circle.

Reborns freak me out.

Yellowing bodies are the new greasy arms.

Screening is a much better way to prevent wonky eye.

Clothing is really tough to get over her man-hands.

  1. Oh Tom, I love this, it really amused me and let me tell you that’s quite some feat first thing on a Monday morning! Best of all, since I got my Tyler Wentworth and started looking into the whole BJD scene I am even beginning to learn some of that lingo!

    As a side note, I will fess up, right here and now, to the fact that I collect reborns as well as just starting out in fashion dolls. I wonder if this makes me a freak of nature or unique? Or just an oddball! 😀 Thanks, as always, for the great post.

  2. I can’t believe that you mentioned WINE! The entire reason for having hobbies such as doll collecting is so that we DON’T use a mind-altering drug to relax and unwind, have “fun”, enjoy life, etc. Can’t you see that? I have spoken up against alcohol for years online, writing thousands of comments, tons of blogs, even a book about why we shouldn’t use alcohol!

My blog is satire, but your thoughts are welcome!
