Liebster Award

Alejandra was so kind to tag me in this Award. :3
I'm gonna post it now, before I go away for the weekend.

The rules:

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

The Questions Alejandra created:

1. What’s the thing you love the most about blogging?
I love how I'm able to connect with people from all over the world. I'm so grateful for the people I've got to talk to here, I can't even describe it. That people will actually read, and even comment, on the rambles I write is amazing to me. <3
2. What’s the thing you love the most about your dolls/figures?
Probably the fact that I somewhat "share" them with my bestie. We share our univers and some of our dolls are friends/lovers/enemies. I love that so much. It's an amazing feeling to create a character and bring something to live, but to be able to share it so close with a person I love dearly, is the best feeling in the world.
3. Is there anything you always wanted to do with your dolls but never dared to?
I've always envied the people who bring their dolls out public to photograph them. I can't bring myself to do it.. Yet. I still want to so badly, but I have social anxiety, so I need to go through a long process before I can do it without getting a panic attack.
4. Are you working on something for your dolls/figures at the moment?
I'm slowly learning to sew. I'm such a noob, but I want to learn it! I've bought some cute fabric I want to use for a dress for Agnes. Someday!
5. Have any of your friends/family joined the hobby because they got to know it through you?
Yes, my mother owns a Lati Yellow Laches, I bought from a dear friend. It's not her first doll, but she's never really liked any size or style yet. But Lily has been with her for almost a year now.
6. Is there something or someone in particular that inspires your aesthetics, background stories, etc?
I find my inspiration from all over. It can't be narrowed down. Just recently I got an idea from the TV show "Empire". (Which btw, is my new favorite show, go watch it!)
7. Do you share your doll or doll photos with people outside the hobby?
Not really. But I do have quite a bit of people from outside the hobby following me on Instagram. Some of them even likes my pictures. Haha.
8. Is any of your dolls based on yourself or a person you know?
Never exactly based on one single person. I take bits and pieces from people I know/myself/a TV show/a song/whatever and piece it together to something I find interesting and realistic.
9. Do you have a favorite doll/figure from another person collection? Would you own the same doll/figure?
I'm very fond of several dolls other people own. In particular Sarqq's Ren and Sherimii's Katherine. I wouldn't mind owning a Raffine, and I do have plans for a Grace. I don't think I'll ever get Raffine, since I wanted her for the old characters' story, but I want Grace as Isabelle's (IH Marien) younger sister. So in light brown on the nYID body.
10. Three things you like about yourself?
Oh dear!
1. My open mind. I have strong opinions, but I'm also open to be challenged and change, if I'm wrong.
2. How I care for other people. I know it's a weakness for me, since I get hurt so often, but I like that I have an easy time loving humans, and that their well-being is important to me.
3. My storyteller mind. I have a brain full of story and character possibilities. I never stop imagining things, and I love writing, even though I have such a hard time doing it.
11. Anything you have learn in this hobby you wish you knew before joining?
How obsessing it would become. It's amazing how many hours I look at dolls/play with dolls/think about dolls a day. Haha.

My Questions:
1. Have you become friends with anyone thanks to this hobby?
2. Which of your dolls do you resemble the most? Tell me about them?
3. Which dolly trend should just die already? Why?
4. What company makes the best clothes in your opinion?
5. What is the next doll on your wishlist?
6. What is your favorite creative thing to do in this hobby?
7. Do you have a dolly couple? Please share a bit about them?
8. Do you have anyone you really admire in this hobby?
9. How do you feel about mods on rare/limited heads?
10. What is the worst thing ever happen to you in this hobby?
11. What is the best thing ever happen to you in this hobby?

And I tag these people for the award:


  1. Thank you so much for doing this!!! HAha I loved reading your answers :)

    Hope you can someday take your dolls in public for photos, it's something I have to do myself too!

    Do you plan on showing some of your sewing projects? I'm interested to see!! I think I'm going to give up on that one hahaha but I'd love to see what you do!

    You have so many good things about yourself, so don't "Oh dear" ever again about it haha. You are an amazing humang being~

    1. Thank you so much for tagging me! :D

      Yeah, people laughing at me is one of biggest "NOPE"s :P

      Maybe when I get a bit better. I'm still such a noob, that most of the time, it doesn't even fit together, when I sew it up. :D haha

      I really hate complimenting myself T_T I feel like a narcissist.

  2. Yay! This was super interesting to read :D

    You have all those good sides to you and many more! (*^^*)<3

    Maybe you could take like 1 doll with you into a forest or something (with Maria f.ex.) and you guys could take some outdoor pics without being disturbed by people?

    1. Awww, thank you so much TwT <3

      I do have brought dolls out, when I've been sure there would be none or almost no one around. :) But I would love to just not care. I care too much about such things, and I want to get over it. Haha. :D

  3. Nice answers and nice questions you made! I totally agree with you on #1 and #11: the hobby is obsessing! :D

    1. Thank you :3
      And it is :D So very much!

  4. Because it didn't say anything about not allowing tag backs

  5. Great answers, babbu! And thanks for tagging me! ^^

    I totally love sharing dolly universe with you! It's so much fun and I really enjoy all of our character talks! ♥

    1. Thanks titi <3 You're welcome ;)
