Meme time

Stole a meme from Nezumi-chuu cause I'm avoiding stuff I should be sewing.

Name: Yenna
Age: 27
Meaning behind your username: No deep meaning really. My name is Jenna but I wanted to write it with a Y because that's how "J" is pronounced in Finnish. I really really don't like hearing it pronounced the English way with a J because I was called that for two years when I lived in Thailand and went to an English school. My English wasn't good enough to correct anyone when I entered and later it was too late to bring it up, so I just let it go. Nowadays, I can't stand hearing it pronounced wrong, two years was enough. xD My older nick is yenchan, that I still use in some places and it's also pretty self-explanatory, no?

Favorite music: Really varies. I like almost anything except for heavy metal, disco/techno and rap. But mostly I like 'pretty' music. Right now, I'm listening to several Final Fantasy OSTs cause nostalgia, and because my sister linked me to "Final Fantasy 9 goes rock - You're not alone" on youtube. Search it, it's awesome. I also just happened to play that part of the game a few months ago (my favorite game of all time, I couldn't love it more). Nowadays I tend to pick up songs from Anime openings and random ones I come across (or people link to me), but I also go back to old ones when I get bored of the new stuff.

Favorite movie:  Uugh... I have so many. It's really hard to say what would be my favorite, but my likes are really varied. For example I like Serenity, Pitch Black, Cabin in the Woods, Easy A, Romeo Must Die, Fearless, Hidalgo, Pirates of the Caribbean (first and third cause Barbossa), X-mens... So anything really from the darker stuff to light romantic comedy. It's not really the genre but the story, dialogue and the acting. Though historical and historical fantasy really appeals to me. And then there are the animated movies like How's Moving Castle, Kiki's Delivery Service, Mulan, Aladding, Atlantis, How to Train Your Dragon, Secret of NIMH... and MANY more.

Favorite TV show: Quite a bit of these too, but not as many as movies. My faves would be Buffy the Vampire Slayer (+Angel), Firefly, Freaks and Geeks, Veronica Mars, Nikita, Desperate Housewives, Grimm,  House MD and the first 3-4 seasons of Supernatural. I guess you can tell I like certain kind of lightheartedness and humour in what I watch. :'D Anything that takes itself too seriously is blegh to me (probably why I love Buffy so much).

Hobbies/interests: So much stuff... TV-shows, movies, videogames, anime, manga, fantasy books, drawing, art, sewing, photography, pets (cats, rodents)... the list goes on.

Random fact about yourself: I don't really have any dreams or goals for my life but when I love something, I love it fiercely (be it a show/game/art/anything) and I will not let it go easily.


1. How long have you been in the hobby?
An interesting day to be doing this meme. I got my first doll exactly 10 years ago (June 22nd 2005). I did start looking into the hobby earlier that year but that's when I officially entered it.

2. How many dolls do you have at home?
Umm... 27-28?? I'm not sure because they don't all have bodies (either they borrow them forever, or I will get them eventually). And I'm selling some of them, so I'm not sure if they're counted in that number. I get mixed up. I also have 2 Dollfie Dreams + 2 azones.

3. What are their names and sculpts?
In order of arrival, but I put the head list at the bottom, because ít's easier to see how many rolling heads I actually have, lol

Miy - Dream of Doll Mir / DIM Happy body with mods
Reiji - Elysium Ban / Luts SDF body
Sebille - Angel Region Diana with Delf hands and DZ feet
Null - DollShe IM-Hound (mod.)  
Somnion - Luts Delf Na-Nu-Ri 2007  
Lin Xiang - K-doll Karon & Kamyu / Delf body (heads sharing the body)
Muu -  Elfdoll Catsy  
Cin - Dollzone Mo  
Khepre - Luts Delf Lu-Wen vp / B&G body  
Kilbas/Kay - Soom Sard
Seere - Soom Onyx  (Vesuvia tail, Amber hands)
Camille - MsDoll Pan
Enki - Soom Glati  
Llyr - Soom Chrom (Monzo paws, Arkose hands)
Demyan - Dollshe Rosen
Prisca - Withdoll Priscilla
Avis - Bimong Narae 404/406 (heads sharing the body)
Delmia - Withdoll Nana (+Angela's armours & weapons)
Lilya - Iplehouse Isar (mod.) / DIM GSE body
Sigrun - Souldoll Paratiisi
Min Ki - Withdoll Taren
Yami - Souldoll Shiva (w/ 6 arms)
Sooty - Cuartos Darkhorn (w/ wings)
Eris -  Soom Asis
Ea - Doll Chateau Russel mod.
Iria - Souldoll Uha
(big!)Prisca - Withdolll Margery
Maylis - Dollzone Ivy
?? - Dollzone Big Dipper

The heads:
Yen - Dream of Doll Tender Yen (probably not getting a body)
Fenrir - Elysium Lud-N (probably not keeping him anymore)
Larissa - Withdoll Rachel vampire (might get a body)
Sindri - Dollshe SA Rosen (not getting a body)
Sigurd - Dollshe SA Rosen (not getting a body)
Siren - Soom Romantic Onyx (sharing Seere's body)
Noxnion- Migidoll vampire Ell (might get a body)
?? - Dollshe Husky (probably not getting a body)
?? - Dollshe IM Hound (not getting a body)

I'm also currently in the possession of the following, but I'm selling them, so they'll go when I find a buyer:
Dream of Doll Too / DZ body, Luts Delf Lishe dreaming mod., and Cuarto's Darkhorn- dark blue metallic,

4. Which doll have you had the longest? How long has it been?
That would be Miy (DOD Mir), she arrived about a month after my first doll on July 26th 2005. So, 10 years next month.

5. Which doll is your favorite?
I don't have one. I love them all, but occasionally some more than the others. Really depends on my mood. But they're all different so I love them for different reasons. It would be easier to say which aren't my favorites, because I'm considering selling them. xD But I go through phases where I do more with some dolls and less with others. And I have some dolls I hardly ever touch but I still love them. I really can't name a favorite.

6. Are you waiting on any dolls now? If yes, which one(s)?
Actually... no. Which is really rare. Ever since last year I've actually had periods where I'm not waiting for a single doll. It's a miracle (or evidence that I'm getting to where I wanna be with my collection).

7. What is your grail doll?
I have my grail dolls. Yami was one, because grey Shiva + 6 hands = perfection. I got her for an amazing deal from the DoA marketplace, because her occasional unavailability and price straight from the company was making her hard to get. Avis was also one, because Narindoll was shady and it was really hard to get her with the exact specs I wanted. Glad Bimong made it possible later on. <3 I also consider Kilbas as a grail, although he wasn't hard to get (as I happened to be watching Soom when they released him). I don't have any new grail dolls, but I do have a grail body (as silly as it sounds): Spiritdoll Proud male body. I can't get it because I don't have a head to go with it. I'd have the character, but the only head that matches him, doesn't fit on that body, which makes me so sad.

8. Did you learn to do something new because of this hobby? (e.g. photography, painting, sewing)
A lot of things. Sewing being the biggest thing because I went and studied it and became a seamstress because of the hobby. But I did also hone my photography skills - I had interest in it before but didn't even own a camera of my own. I also learnt painting face ups and general customizing. I'd have to say that this hobby has completely changed my life.

9. Have you made any friends you might otherwise not have because of this hobby?
Yes, but some of them are gone now; dropped from the hobby and moved onto other things. But there are a lot of people I would've never met if it weren't for the hobby. =u=

10. What are your doll plans for this coming year?
Not much. I'm hoping I'd be able to finish everyone I have home now, maybe bring home a character I miss and look at new molds for my wolf siblings. I'd also like to be able to do some photo stories for a change. I also REALLY should make that photobook I planned to have ready by now, but I got stuck with selecting the photos for it. I have thousands of photos and can only fit like 50 or so in the book. How will I ever choose???

Tagging everyone that wants to do this, and fuyuhime cause she's also soon had dolls for 10 years, so to celebrate: meme time!


Please, DO NOT re-post my photos to other sites like tumblr, instagram, weheartit etc.

I'm so lucky to have found your page. Your photos are all so gorgous! 
Also I love the doll photos.
You live in Finland?!? THAT'S SO COOOOL! I went to Iceland over the summer and loved it :) I would love to go to Finland.

Finland's not that cool, though. Well, I love the nature, but I don't really get what there's to see for a tourist.
As a native, that's normal for you to say that, of course :) I live in the USA, and despite the attention it gets, it's not my favorite place in the world. I like parts of it, but not so much where I live. It's a bit boring.
