Yeah, some of the fandom is a bit much. I just want one to make clothes for. I think that they are both creepy and cute.

SV thinks he is dead. I think that he has been on vacation.

Creepy by no means has to mean bad. I love creepy.

Have you looked into previously owned dolls, Hag? I occasionally notice friends of mine looking to sell theirs.

As for Kil... I'm sure someone can play internet-sleuth and find out where he's gone.

You can kill a robot if Transformers and Terminator movies are to be believe, and Robots (not in Portal, Borderlanders or Futurama) don't enjoy vacations, so mayhaps he's getting an upgrade? Kilbot 2.0? Kilbot Vista?

Also expect me to feel TERRIBLE if something actually bad happend to the dude.

I've seen him lurking so I think he's fine. I suspect that, being on vacation, he has more fun things to do than post here. At least, that's my theory.

Edit: @Mai. No, I haven't really. I'd be a bit hesitant to buy a used one though because I wouldn't really know how to judge if the price was reasonable or not.

BJD kinda creep me out, but on the other side it would be really cool for me to completely customize a figure based on a character I enjoy. Like to say; Completely paint and customize a BDJ as Roll from the Megaman series.

I don't think I could ever like..carry it around with me or something like folks do at conventions. I'd just put it in the display cabinet with the other figures.

But it might be cool to create one from sorta scratch.

Apparently some people make up personalities and backstories for their dolls. Eh, whatever floats your boat I guess.

I have removed my gloves!

And they did look kind of creepy in the picture... I love them though. Samantha is in great shape for her age (17) and so is Josefina (15).

I have a little "Byul" doll that I bought on a whim two years ago. She's not a bjd, but she's awesome.

Kinda creeps me out in the way that old cultures where against getting their pictures taken because they claimed it took a piece of your soul. But I read a lot of spooky stories so I think all things can steal your soul anyway.

I wouldn't want to buy one like..pre-designed though. I'd rather buy the body and stuff to make it so I can be crafty.

Oh yeah - there are a LOT of horror stories involving dolls. I totally understand being creeped out by them.

SV thinks he is dead. I think that he has been on vacation.
Maybe he's on holiday in the afterlife? Insert Grim Fandango reference below.

I make up personalities and backstories for my video game characters, that's probably the same thing.

...love the BJDs. Can't afford them...at least right now but...I would love to. Except...the ones actually based on characters kind of creep me out a little. All the custom ones are great though.

Uhm lemme see....driving is on the brain...it's a car kind of day. I love doing figure eights and just driving in my mum's Jetta TDI...it's like a go kart. Also on a related note...my grandmother has some badass friends at church of all places. One drove her '79 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II.....and another one of the people there pulled up in a brand spanking new Lamborghini.

Also...to throw this out there...cats are soft, fluffy and kind of distracting.
