I thought I would add a post about my doll hoard. I tend to have ones that are my solid doll family and some that come and go. The reason I have some that come and go is because many times you can't know how you feel about a doll until you actually have it in your hands. Pictures can only tell you so much, they can't show you how a doll feels to move, the weight or how it will fit in with the rest of your dolls. Also having a large doll family I HAVE to be fussy and sell if it's not love.
The dolls that are full time permanent residents are my hypermaniacs. Though recently I have let a couple of the hypermaniac boys move on to more appreciative homes. The reason for that is that I have found the boys don't get any attention. Seems I am a girl person. Though I always thought I liked them both equally, time has shown me the error of my ways! So the hypers that could/can be turned into girls are/have been turned into girls! My Dongha is now on a Jamie 2002 early hyper body and looks wonderful. It took my mind some time to look at this doll as a girl but I think I am there now. If I had never seen the mold before as a boy I would have not even known he/she was a boy. Makes a great girl.
My Hypermaniac Family: All original year - no rereleases.
Jamie - the first doll hypermaniac company offered for sale. Her body is unique to her. She has separated toes. I adore her body!
Dongha on second Jamie body (still have his body of course)
Sirang - maybe making her into a boy (see how that goes)
Marie - beautiful sleepy eyes, stunning mold.
Rui - this one has a beautiful resin color! must have got a really nice batch of resin
Choyangbi - as girl
Hahanbi - as girl
kakiva - half closed eye
Kakiva - this one has modded open eyes
Eujquiv - I LOVE this face
I could have collected every hyper, it was really moving in that direction, but I stopped ! glad I did, that boy revelation helped. Funny how it took years for me to figure that out. The boys would just sit on the shelf and the girls get all the attention.
I think I am at the end of my hyper seeking! WOW six years.
For thoes new to hypermaniac company, these dolls are hard to find. I only wanted to collect the original year as I found I liked the older heavy resin they used in the early dolls. One of the things I love most about my hyper family is they were made in very small batches. This resulted in small differences in resin color so all my dolls are a slightly different color. To me they seem more real because of that! and more special.
Ok as promised dolly eye candy. This is Marie (on right) and Wizard-K (left boy)
My adorable Jamie (juliette)
