- What got you into the doll/figure/toy/*insert your hobby here* hobby?
For BJD, my mom stumbled upon BJD pictures while she was reading a cooking diary blog, and she showed it to me and I was instantly hooked! I actually never thought I would be able to own them due to the price, but I can be quite ambitious once I have my mind set on certain things. As I grew older, my love for BJD only increased... And when I found out my best friend was also into the hobby, there was no way I'm not getting at least one with her!
I also collect nendoroids and one coin figures. From a very young age I was exposed to a lot of Japanese pop culture since it was a big thing when I used to live in Thailand, I grew up reading manga and watching anime shows. I remember my mom buying me those cheap knock-off figure key chains of Cardcaptor Sakura, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and bunch of other anime shows. I guess the figure collecting hobby evolved and got stuck with me.

- Do you ever regret getting into the hobby or have you thought of quitting? Why/Why not?
Hmmm, not really (so far). I've always been an imaginative child and loved to create characters and stories about them. Being able to bring my OCs to "life" in BJD form is very dear to me. Plus, I get very sentimental and attached to things once I have them for a while.

- If you had to choose only one type of dolls/figures/toys/*insert things you collect here* to collect, what would you choose and why?
If I had to choose, it would be BJD hobby. I'm too invested (both money and emotion) on this hobby to let it go any time soon. Plus, I've always been the type that doesn't lose interest easily once I'm into it.
- If you could create any kind of game, what kind of a game would it be?
Hands down, role playing style! And visual novel can be a possibility~
- Tell us a little about one of your favorite fictive characters and why do you love them so much?
Hmmm, this is a hard question for me... Ummm Levi from SnK is what I can think of currently. I guess what I really like about him is his personality. He is very rough and harsh on the outside, but deep down he cares for others, and you gotta love his sassy streaks and potty mouth~ Plus, we share the same birthday and we're almost the same height... Levi is slightly taller than me by a little over 2 inches. And one of the biggest thing I love about him is that he's a clean freak! My family and friends also calls me a clean freak.... I'm constantly cleaning my room and spraying Lysol everywhere, hehe. And whenever I see a hand sanitizer, I have to use it even though my hands are "clean". I guess, I do have a bit of an OCD tendency, there are times when I wash my hands too much they starts to crack and bleed... though I've have gotten better now.
- Do you draw? If yes, what is your favorite thing to draw? If not, when did you stop and why?
Yes, Yes, and YES~ I absolutely love drawing! My favorite thing to draw is people/ characters. Though my drawing style always changes back and forth. In addition to drawing, I also paint with acrylics. But whenever I paint it's mostly scenery/ flowers.
I draw cute little chibis (Tetsuya x Shiki)~ (´∀｀)♡
And yes, I'm guilty of drawing naughty things too... >///< Lucien x Mitsuki (a little surprise for Orion+Cain)
A gift I painted for my "host" mom~
My friend requested a painting from me of the ocean for her birthday gift.
My personal favorite... Also for my "host" mom... I actually wanted to keep this... Lol!
Just like what Spica did, I'll make my own six questions for the people that I tagged~
- Introduce us one of your OC that you want to shell as a BJD or have as a BJD, and what are their likes and dislikes?
- Do you have a favorite sculpt? And what do you like about that sculpt?
- How many BJDs do you have or planned on having? What sculpt are they?
- Which is the most important to you for your doll: wig, clothes, eyes, face-up, or shoes? And why?
- Do your friends/ family know about your BJD hobby? Are they supportive of your BJD hobby?
- Do you have any other hobby?
Now, I would like to tag... (●´∀｀●)
❤ And anyone else who wants to do this~
