I need to resist, but the urge to spend is growing. There’s a doll on Amazon that wants me to buy her. This is her:
For a Blythe, she’s inexpensive. Actually, she’s about Pullip-priced. (Well, upper-range Pullip-priced. About what I paid for Andre when I bought him straight from Groove.) So she’s twice what a naked factory girl would cost. But she’s real. And that gorgeous purple hair!
Have I mentioned that I have a thing for purple hair?
‘Cause I totally do.
But she’s still really expensive for a single doll. Especially factoring in that there’s two new lines of Monster High that just came out, and although they’re cheap individually, I’ll end up getting almost all of the dolls in them, and at about $20 per, that does add up. (Though I try to wait for sales and coupons and such as much as possible, trying to drive it down more towards $10-15 per…but when there’s about a dozen of them, that still doesn’t help that much.) And there’s the usual incidental costs of living, which are always higher than I expect.
It’s like “can I please win the lottery so I can support my toy habit?”
Oh, and, of course, there’s the fact that PullipStyle has the MIO kits in stock again, so I kind of want to order one ASAP so I can make that Kagamine Rin Pullip that I wasn’t able to make out of Brand New Purezza, only I’m not about to do that if I’m going to spend a huge amount of money on a Blythe (or even a lesser amount on a factory girl) and…ack. I definitely have money issues…
Anyway, speaking of Brand New Purezza, I’ve decided on her name. It’s Rena.
I probably brutally misspelled that….but since she’s a miko, I thought she should introduce herself properly.
Anyway, for the moment, I’m still fighting the urge to buy that Blythe–which the seller calls “Blythe Prima Dolly Villa Tina fluorescens”–but who knows how long I can fight the good fight. (The biggest problem with living alone is that I have no allies to aid me. Uh, okay, actually, that’s about number three on the list, really. But in this context, it’s the biggest problem.) It doesn’t help that I’m on some new medication right now and a little bit off my head, reducing my willpower to almost nothing.
