So. I've gotten into this hobby of ball-jointed dolls. After lurking in the shadows for a whole year, I finally got the chance to get a doll of my own. Therefore, let me present to you - Étienne. Or E.T. as he's called for short.

I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't pay to compromise here. Even the cheap dolls are not THAT cheap. And why spend on something that is not in the end, going to satisfy. Better to have fewer, but the ones that really move you.
I agree completely! So even though he's expensive as a castle, I'm thinking to save up for my grail doll, which is Iplehouse's EID Roger. I really compare all dolls with him, so I assume I won't settle with anything less anyhow xD Lester being one of the exceptions, of course
I know the feeling. My grail doll was the Soom Idealian York, which I finally bucked up for this past year. WAY too much money, but there was nothing to be done about it. So he was a long layaway and now I'm happy. Though I don't think about the money, (much).
