Dangerous times

As Christmas time nears, many companies will release new dolls or have some lovely events. It's a dangerous time! Especially since I am moving next month and am busy decorating my new apartment! So, no cash at all available! ToT

Here are some recent releases that are tempting me~

First up are PW's new Black Alice releases~ Especially Rosemii is gorgeous, what beautiful lips, gorgeous face-up! The 2 boys are also really lovely though!

Secondly is Anna Queen's head pre-order, there's a gorgeous girl and this handsome gentleman, Bau~ Ahhh! So lovely.

How do you deal with dangerous times such as these? ToT

  1. I love christmas events!! but I always stick to my plans so I don't get much opportunities to enjoy the events. IAt this moment I'm debating on buying one of 2 tinies I want so I'm waiting if there's gonna be an event on any of those stores hahaha :D If not I don't know what I'll do. I wish I could just give into emptation and buy everthing I like from the events, that PW girl is specially tempting :D

    1. You have a lot of discipline then! Dolls never obey my plans xO xO
      Ohh, which two are you considering? I know some companies offer event gifts or discounts at X-mas time! :D
      Me too~ if only we could win the lottery XD

    2. We could say I have discipline but it's also boring that way XD
      I prefer not to go public with y plans because I might jinx them lol but let's just say one og the 2 companies always do discounts for xmas while the other does nothing XD

  2. Ooooh they are both such lovely dolls. PW always have nice dolls though so I am kind of glad they are out of my budget range because I could not honestly decide! And heads are so tempting as they are not as pricey as a full doll so it's easy to give in to temptation (at least for me!)

    Plus all the sales this time of year, usually starting next month makes everything tempting.

    I refuse to look. It's the only way I can avoid temptation. But I also have two factors coming into play this year which will help with not buying; (a) the exchange rate is horrible at the moment for the AUD, (b) I can't buy any bjds until I get a new job or sell off one of the ones I currently have. And as I am not at the moment planning to let go of any of my bjd crew, that solves that problem!

    Of course, if I won lotto, all bets are off!

    1. I agree completely haha :) You always stick to your budget? I used to have a limit for spending dolls but that flew out the window the moment I started wanting LE dollies ToT
      You are right, we should consider these things (exchange rate and finances) very carefully too :D It's still hard to control yourself though! I love your idea of having to sell one to get one :O
      Agreed, I wish we could all win the lotto XD!!

    2. I have a "budget handler" (aka the hubby) who I generally clear big purchases (like bjds) with before I purchase so that helps me stick to budget a lot better. He doesn't sweat the little stuff though (like MH dolls, figures, nendoroids etc, wooh!). But Christmas and birthday are coming up so I tend to let relatives know that I'd prefer doll money as gifts and they're always relieved as they find it hard to shop for me!! But then again, I tend to spend that on figures 0_0 Lucky there aren't really any bjds I am dying to own isn't it?

  3. I keep telling myself I don't really need new dolls, and that I should focus on the ones I already have. I'm also still paying off my Hunky Dory.
    I think I'll be able to sit this one out, but I really REALLY like Kass - he would be a perfect friend for my White Rabbit Tristan. >___<~<3

    Hopefully I can contain myself to just entering the competitions and hoping for a miracle XD
    I mean, I'm SERIOUSLY broke right now anyway. ^^"

    Rosemii will surely be available again at another time. It's the dress that is the real limited thing I guess.
    I love how she looks as if she is 'not wearing makeup' *_______*

    1. Ahhh~ yes! The boys are so lovely too, aren't they? :O
      Oh yeah, good luck in entering! I will enter too :D hope you can win ~~~!
      You think she will be re-released? :O But PW don't release basics of all their dollies TT; and she has really nice features! I also love her special skintone in the photos and that "bare" face-up :D

      Delete
    2. Yeah, they are all super gorgeous >_<~<3
      Thank you, you too :D will be fun to see all the different photos!
      I do think so, but I'm note sure. If she is popular, they might bring her back later. :/
      It's tricky!

    3. Just now I noticed they released basic head parts for all 3 of these dollies! So I guess its fine :D I really love Rosemii's lips but I secretly hope they will also release an open-eyed version!

  4. It is such dangerous a time of year :P
    Luckily I'm safe from PW this time, but they're all three really lovely :3

    I'm always in love with Anna-Queen's sculpts! They're so goddamn gorgeous.

    My tactic for avoiding buying anything atm is pretty simple: No money :P
    I'm about to move soon, so I really can't afford it.

    If I had money right now, I would probably buy a LLT Lazuli from Jeeryama, before he's sold out, but I have a feeling he'll disappear before I can find the funds T_T

    1. I share your tactic, but having a creditcard is extremely dangerous at such times. Hahaha :D
      Agreed, AQ makes the loveliest and special sculpts @o@ I've seen her dollies at several doll parties and they're so nice!
      Let's hope you can get some funds to buy him, perhaps you could try making something or selling some older dolly stuff?

  5. I feel you on Christmas being a dangerous time of year for doll people, I'm sure there'll be so many tempting releases and events >.<

    Those new PW dolls look gorgeous, the faceups and outfits are awesome!

    1. ToT Let's pray that we will not be completely broke when the new year begins T__T; but I am afraid I will be.
      This might just be the beginning of all the lovely new releases.

  6. Yes, Christmas is event time!! Usually the biggest ones, too.
    Sadly I'm not getting anything this winter, but on 2013 I caved and bought my second doll on an Xmas event.

    1. Ah, it's terrible, isn't it? Having to resist all those lovely events & releases!
      Perhaps next Xmas you can get something?

  7. Hi Irene,
    I'm afraid I've been a bitt of a bugger this year already, so I'm just not looking...if course it doesn't help much when my blogging pals post photos of beautiful dolls!! LOL!
    Hugs,
    X

    1. Hahaha, sorry about that :) but what else are friends for if not to tempt you with beautiful doll pics?

  8. I'm really waiting for the Christmas events, and I'm also afraid of them! So tempting and so much different beautiful dolls coming out! I love the Peakswoods dolls now, I've not been in their site like forever I think. I'm a bit afraid Bluefairy will release something I'd love to get, but the same time they don't really follow the usual event times of the year. I'm looking forward to see what Fairyland will offer, as their previous event just finished. That's something I've been saving for, but I need to keep a little space for Bluefairy as always. :D Good luck for your moving! ^__^ I hope it wil go smoothly.

    1. It can be a great time if your favorite company will have some events~ :D I hope you can get a new dolly this year and that BF releases a lovely event~
      Thanks so much :D moving is always a hassle though! :O

  9. Ooooh! Anna Queen Bau! I have such a big do want feeling for him. He would be perfect for one of my characters, but sadly I don't have the funds to buy dolly things right now. So I'm really hoping he will be re-released in the future. :3

    Christmas is indeed a dangerous time with all the events. Most of the time I'm pretty lucky though and haven't been tempted much the last couple of years. I do have a feeling that the luck might run out at some point. D:

    1. I feel the same way about him, he's really handsome! But no cash TwT

      Yes, be careful what you say, there might just be 3 or 4 gorgeous releases suddenly ~~ and you might be doomed! ToT

  10. I really like the PW girl. Had she been with open eyes and not dreaming then I most definitely would have gotten her. My sole PW doll needs a friend :P
    I love the Christmas events but I shouldn't buy anything. I need to save money especially because I'm considering where to do my masters programme and I'm considering so many different universities.

    1. I kind of wish they'd release her with open eyes as well! :O
      You are right, we need to set our priorities ~ haha :D I hope you can decide on a university soon, are you considering studying abroad?

      Delete
    2. Maybe they will release her again later? We can hope they'll release her later with open eyes :D
      Haha, but isn't buying dolls the absolute top priority? :P
      I've been looking at universities here in Denmark and in Sweden. And lately I've been considering doing a double degree in Beijing (giving me a masters degree from both SDU in Denmark and UCAS in China). I really don't know where I'm gonna end up next year. It's so difficult to decide!

    3. If that happens, we might really be in trouble! Hahaha~
      You're right, my dollies often get better clothes and shoes than I do as well xO they're very high up there on the priority list!

      That sounds awesome, you should definitely go to Asia~ it's so interesting here!
