I have been always thinking of opening up my own blog for my collection – fashion dolls. And I am glad that I have finally put it into action!! Thanks to my good friends and colleagues who know that I have such a passion towards fashion dolls for quite some years. They have been amazed by how I could admire a piece of plastic/vinyl from many perspectives that they could never thought of. So they said “why not starting a blog to share your excitement and pictures with the others and, especially to those like-minded?”
Like most of the collectors, I started my collection since I was kid. However, it never was fashion dolls. As far as I could remember that it began with TV characters, animation heroes and the Justice Leagues. But then with the wonderful information in the internet, I found a repainted Sydney Chase (Tonner Robert) as an Indian beauty by chance one day. Her beauty totally haunted me for days, or I should say for weeks. That stunning repaint was so stunning that I began to follow the links in the website and then go deeper and deeper for a research. Since then I shifted my collection to fashion dolls. Without much time, I found the Shock Bon Bon Vanessa, Graphic Language Adele and Glam Slam Kyori of Fashion Royalty by Integrity later on. Then these girls captured all my attention! I have given up my action figures collections and spent all my devotion and every single dime saved for fashion dolls.

In 2005, I had the luck to purchase a Skye of Sybarite by Superfrock in UK. Sybarite is the kind of department store look-alike mannequin that I have ever dreamt of. Later, I also found Deva dolls by DHD Thailand. Wow… each of them has its own characteristic and attitudes. Now, I also have some bigger BJDs, namely Aarron by Iplehouse and Spinel Super Gem by Soom also. I don’t know where my collection would go in the future. But it is absolutely a wonderful journey so far (except not so wonderful for my wallet) !!!
As a matter of fact, several of my close friends were influenced by me and they also started to collect fashion dolls. Some of them even bypass my collection within a short period of time!!!
I wish this blog would be able to share my fashion dolls collection joy and excitement with my dear family, friends, colleagues and whoever is about to collect dolls or already a well experienced collectors.
