Just to get the unavoidable out of the way first: No, I'm not rich (quite on the contrary). And I did not just wake up one day and buy 24 dolls and their clothes & accessories. This is the beginning of my ninth year in the bjd hobby so, I've had 8 years to grow my collection. The photo is missing Fenrir because he's inbetween bodies, and Larissa because she doesn't have a body yet.
When I took these guys out of their shelves I realized that some of my oldest dolls don't really suit my tastes anymore, so I might be selling a few (within them my very first doll :<) or re-shelling them as molds that are more suitable for me right now. It's just that I get really attached and it's really hard for me to sell the oldest ones. Especially when I know it's gonna be a pain because they're hybrided and not a perfect match due to yellowing and all that jazz. And they're worth much more in sentimental value than monetary.
But let's see which way my collection ends up going. The reality is that I do have to sell something if I want to buy something new, because I just don't have enough room. I already have Llyr out of the glass shelf because him and his giant claw-feet just don't fit into either one. xD He's collecting dust on my bookcase. Though, I'm lucky in a way that I no longer have characters that I 'need' for my stories. Just ones that I want (but that list is always growing).
