Liebster Award


I was tagged the Liebster Award by Alasse from The Wayward Inn  (thank you for the tag!)

The rules:
1. Thank the person who presented you the award and link back to their blog.
2. Post the award image on your blog.
3. Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter.
4. Nominate 5-11 blogs with less than 200 followers.
5. Create 11 questions for the nominees to answer.
6. List these rules in your post.
7. Inform the people you chose of their nomination by leaving a comment on their blog and link them your post.

My 11 Questions from Alasse:

1.What drew you to the hobby?
I used to sell Blythe doll clothing at the Melbourne Doll Market and it was there I first saw Indollgence and fell in love with a tiny bunny named Jax. I hadn't seen BJD's before and was so fascinated I began searching for them online ~ the rest of course is history!!

2. What was your first doll? Why did you choose that one?
Jax and then Fairyland's Puki Fee Ante. It was their cuteness, which kinda took me by surprise, I'm not normally a cutsie person at all.

3. What was your 2015 doll regret? Probably purchasing from April Story. The whole transaction was a headache and by the time I received her it had left such a bad taste, I was over the doll completely.

4. Did you sell any dolls in 2015? My Coco head, if that counts and a few faceplates and most of my Blythe collection.

5. Do your doll characters have their own theme song? Not really, unless you can count "If you go down into the woods today", LOL!

6. What style best describes your doll collection? (Fantasy, goth, punk etc.) Definitely fantasy, probably because I'm a dreamer, although I love many other styles too.

7. What sort of aesthetics do you look for in a doll? In a word "symmetry".

8. Have you built or plan to build any dioramas for your dolls?
Have attempted a couple in the past which haven't been as satisfactory as I would have liked, hence they have ended up being binned! Am currently working on one, which for the first time is progressing the way I want . . . finally I think it will be a success. :)

9. What is your 2016 doll wishlist? I haven't really made a proper wishlist for this year, though I am interested in adding another RealFee and perhaps a couple more Doll Be With You tiny dolls.

10. Do you have a 'fantasy' wishlist? (ie. dolls that you will never own unless you won lotto etc.) No not now. I think this past year has helped me refine my collection, so now I am settled on collecting tiny dolls,  which are quite affordable, I can pretty much order what I like.

11. What do you love most about the hobby? Mostly I love the versatility of it, it's a combination of hobbies within a hobby. It's not just collecting dolls, it's sharing the interest with a whole lot of lovely people who enjoy the same interest. It's the sewing, knitting, reading and writing blogs, the photography and the story telling. I think this is the best hobby anyone can have!!

My 11 Questions to those tagged are the same as Alasse gave me:

1.What drew you to the hobby?
2. What was your first doll? Why did you choose that one?
3. What was your 2015 doll regret?
4. Did you sell any dolls in 2015?
5. Do your doll characters have their own theme song?
6. What style best describes your doll collection? (Fantasy, goth, punk etc.)
7. What sort of aesthetics do you look for in a doll?
8. Have you built or plan to build any dioramas for your dolls?
9. What is your 2016 doll wish list?
10. Do you have a 'fantasy' wish list? (i.e. dolls that you will never own unless you won lotto etc.)
11. What do you love most about the hobby?

As most of the people who's blogs I read seem to have been tagged already, I will not be tagging so many this time.

    1. Ha ha, that question stumped me Uraru and it's the first song that came to mind . . . it does tend to suit their theme quite well. :)
      You have a great day too!

    1. Hi Giac,
      Ah the diorama has a little ways to go yet, but I am posting pictures along the way. Of course it's only a kiddy room, nothing like your grand house. :)

  4. I think your new dorama will be a success too :D! Tinies are so nice, I love my YoSD because it's so easy to manage them, I imagine your tinies to be super nice to play with too ~

    This was very interesting to read. Love all this tags where we get to know each other better :)
    And I did not know the blogs you gave the award to, so I'm going to go stalk them now XD

    1. Thank you Alejandra. Yes, the tiny dolls are much easier to manage and they don't take up as much space either.

      Hope you enjoy the other blogs too.

  5. I'm sure I say this on every award/meme post, but only because it's so true: I love seeing these pop and reading a few extra details of people's lives and collecting habits!

  6. Thanks for doing the tag questions! I always love reading people's answers to these.

    To think, I might have met you if I had decided to go to the Melbourne Doll Market! I had wanted to a few times but never it was always a bad time of year to fly out (cyclone season around these parts!)

    You can definitely count "If you go into the woods today".

    I really love that you have such a heavy fantasy theme for your dolls. I love fantasy themes but I have always found it so hard to recreate them for my dolls because of some of the costume ideas I have had and not been able to execute myself. The fantasy genre is one of my favourites and one I love to read a lot of so I'm quite lucky that I get to enjoy this through your dolls. Thank you!

    Your answer to question 11 is spot on. It is such a diverse hobby (although you said it better than me). It really does combine several hobbies into the one and it's a beautiful thing to see.

    1. Hi Alasse,

      It's a long way to come to a doll market. It would be great if we both lived in the same state wouldn't it? At least then there wouldn't be the expense of plane tickets. LOL!

      I think that sharing ideas, photos etc. is one of the things I really enjoy about blogging. Maybe you could do some sketches sometime, and perhaps see if one of us can make them.

      Hugs,

  7. Dioramas seem like so much fun~ I can't wait to try my hand at some too, and seeing my fellow bloggers make some is very inspiring!
    I agree that the doll hobby encompasses so many different aspects it's great to share and learn and be inspired together~

  8. Hello and greetings from a Swedish winter wonderland! Had to see what questions and answers this tag brought through you! Interesting is that the way we end up in this hobby can be so, so different from person to person!
    And dioramas! Would love to try to make one tiny for my little Blythe (Littlest Pet Shop).
    Hugs! :)

    1. Hi there Niina!
      Lovely to hear from you. Yes I agree, it is interesting how it can vary, but it's encompasses so much and is loads of fun.
      Dioramas can almost be as addictive as the dolls, so if you do make one, be prepared to make another. :)
