Spooky Halloween Monster Tag

Thank you so much Musume for tagging me to do this <3

Werewolf – How has the hobby “transformed” you? 
Besides turning me into a shopaholic big time? Haha xD
Well, I think it has helped me in my other hobby, which is writing. Thanks to the dolls, I've gone and done character related things, I otherwise never would have thought of. I think it's made me better at creating characters. 
I've also tried things I would probably otherwise never have done. Even if I've failed miserably at it, I have tried my hands at taking pictures, doing face-ups, sewing, making jewelry and probably more things I don't recall. 
I also kinda owe a thanks to the hobby for getting me through the hardest part of my journey of having a mental illness. I literally lost my ability to socialize both irl and online over night. But thanks to determination and this hobby, I have somewhat regained some of it. :) 

Vampire – The dreaded sun! How do you feel about and cope with yellowing, or more generally the aging of these dolls? 
Honestly, I'm not that worried about it. Yellowing is inevitably! Yes, you can reduce the speed of it, but you can't stop it. I can get so angry when people list a doll from 2008 and claim it has "no yellowing". That's simply not possible. Not even if you keep it in its' box in a dark room, the oxygen will still effect the resin. *sigh* 
But as I mentioned, no I don't go out of my way to avoid yellowing. I keep my dolls in a cabinet, but when I move I plan on having them sit on a shelf. 
My oldest doll Agnes (Napidoll Chesi) is "somewhat" yellowed. The body was bought second hand and was at that time, already yellowed (and it doesn't match her head), but also her head, which I bought in 2012 I think, is yellowed. I don't mind it at all. :)

Frankenstein’s Monster – Have you ever modded a doll? Tell us about it! If you could magically try any mod without fear of failure, what would you like to try?
Back in my eary days of the hobby, I did actually do some minor stuff like sanding a doll's face, but it never got to the point where I wanted to do more of it. It was just me trying things. So the mod Felix, my Rebecca boy, has is not done by me, but by a talented person at DoA. 
I have thought about buying a doll some day that would have a missing arm or leg, so if I could magically have the talent to do modicfications, I would definitely go ahead with that plan. :)

Zombie – Have you ever caught the Marketplace virus?? Name some unplanned purchases that jumped out and “infected” you?
Yes... I think I may have a bad case of "the marketplace virus" XD 
I could go on forever about it, but let me just tell you about the last incident. 
My dear friend Anne was selling an Iplehouse SID Eva in real skin. Eva is one of my favorite sculpts from Iplehouse,
So I ended up talking to Anne and now Eva is living with me ^^ 

Skeleton – What’s your favorite body sculpt? Forget heads! 
For girls I think I will choose the Iplehouse SID female body. It has better posing than the EID female body, but has the same beautiful look. I hate posing my EID female body. Especially the knees are just useless (maybe I should look into doing something about), but the SID female body is so much better. Standing like a rock. 
For boys, I think I prefer my SID male body. I love how it looks, but it's definitely not a good poser. For posing, I would have to pick my Souldoll double boy body. But if I could pick a body I don't own, I think I'll pick all the Popodoll male bodies. They're pretty and from what I've seen from other people, they're good at posing too. :D

Witch – Name some dolls that are magical! Seeing them on your dashboard inspires you! Can be general sculpts or specific dolls owned by talented friends.
So many people inspire me. More than particular dolls. Seeing the effort some of my friends put into their dolls inspire me. Seeing the beautiful pictures, reading the interesting stories, admiring their skills. It's so inspiring. :D
 But there is a particular doll I find inspiring. AArhea's Ember. I think I could say, I'm a fan of this Eva. To the point, where just seeing pictures of her will make me happy.

Ghost – The one that got away. Do any limited or rare dolls “haunt” you to this day?
Iplehouse SID Edan. I didn't realize how much I loved him, until he started to show up on Flickr. ;__; 
At first I thought I wouldn't get him, because of how my rules were, but then my doll universe changed, and I thought "YES! Edan needs to come home". But Iplehouse went and re-release the Carved Heritage just when I am broke. :( So I guess you could say, he got away twice ;) 

Jason Voorhees – If you were gonna make Halloween costumes for your dolls (or if you plan to!) what costumes would you make?
I was supposed to make Halloween costumes for the Halloween meet-up next weekend for my dolls, but I haven't been able to. 
Someday I would like to though. I like Halloween, even if it's not really that big in Denmark.

Chucky (possessed doll) – Have you ever been scared of dolls or a certain doll? Be honest!
I find a lot of dolls to be scary. Some more than others. I get this eerily feeling when I see certain dolls with huge smiles. There's something uncanny about them.
