Hello! I'm Marzi. As you can guess from the title, I live in Boston. I just bought my first porcelain BJD, the OOAK Autumn Princess doll by Tatiana Tofaneto. As in, literally sent the eBay payment about ten minutes ago. I'm excited beyond belief to have her here.
I collect OT dolls, too- mostly antiques (Victorian and Edwardian), but I have two resin BJDs. My other main hobby is historical costuming, and I often make my dolls clothing out of scraps from my human-scale projects. Beyond saving money, it also makes me feel even more closely linked to them, like I'm part of their stories in a way beyond just owning them. Even when they leave me, hopefully many, many years from now, they'll take a bit of me out into the world with them.
I already have an outfit designed and swatched in my sketchbook for this new girl. Now she just needs to come for her fittings!
