I used to collect a lot, and now, I don't do a lot of collecting at all. My collection has slowed to a crawl - some of it is probably because I have finished my uber collections - that of my Lishes and my BAs, and some of it is probably because of the deviation of my favourite sculpting company (Fairyland/CP) away from it's traditional aesthetic towards more carbon copy ridiculous-ness of things I am not a fan.
If you doubt me, check out the MNF al a carte page and tell me that there is more than small differences in the last 10-15 MNF sculpts. I can't seem much of a change in any of them, it's cookie cutter-eseque and so far from the classic features of Lishe, El and BA, that I have never been tempted (in fact, I'm repelled.).
I have only collected 8 dolls over the past three years and I'm only expecting one this year, although I've been waiting since September last year for it. In my first 2 years of collecting, I managed to accumulated in the region of 30 dolls (some of which have since been sold, but probably not as many as I should have.)
Here they are:
And to be honest, 2017 and 2018 are a little confusing: I only collected two heads in 2017, a Dreaming Breakaway to finish my FL released BA collection and a Seed Arts Wol. In 2018, I found a F70 body for my Dreaming Breakaway and I collected one full doll, my Depth Dolls Deilf.
For sanity's sake, the dolls shown here are as follows: Olwen (Delf Lishe, body found in 2016), Ceres (RealFee Haru, new); Bexley (Artifex Kindred/Twigling Ingenue, new); Bloch (R-line Rus, new); Solzhenitsyn (Eve Dolls Scottish Fold, new); Balor (Dreaming BA, head in 2017 and body in 2018); Lobelia (Seed Arts Wol head); and Ruska (Depth Dolls Deilf, new).
It also doesn't miss my attention that of the dolls I have collected over the past 3 years, only two have been "new" Fairyland dolls - a RealFee Haru and an R-line Rus in 2016. The others, the Delf Lishe head and the Dreaming BA are both old Fairyland/CP dolls. The rest are mostly from small artist run companies - Artifex Kindred/Twigling; Seed Arts, Depth Dolls and Eve.
The doll I'm still waiting for is a little more big scale - a Dollzone Snow Fulai fullset. Last time I asked about her, they were still expecting it to take another 4 weeks.
So that's where we're at... slowing down and wishing I was taking more photos of dolls.
