On a journal entry, Fancyboots was contemplating sculpting dolls in different scales. Since I don’t philosophize about the dolls much here I thought I’d repost my response:
I think in general I prefer more mature dolls. That usually translates into larger in size when it comes to BJD, unless you look at unoa w/ the large milk part. For a smaller/younger doll to capture my fancy they have to have a certain quality… that is usually petulance, spookiness, sadness or really pooty lips ^_^ One thing I love about ABJD is the adolescense of the dolls. They’re neither saccharine babies nor busty hoochie mamas. Liebchen fits into this grey area in a lovely way. I love that sort of 11-18 age zone of blossoming girlhood. No matter what the size. And I don’t care about all my dolls having to fit in. Their world is a dolls world so they don’t have to be to scale with eachother. I do like the larger size because they are so easy to sew for though.
