I support BJD Artists!
What ever I collect or buy, I want to buy the real thing. No copies, no recasts and no look-a-likes. If I can not buy it, I save for it or wait for a better moment. Behind every doll, there is an artist, who had you in mind when making, working and designing. She or he wanted you to have the best and the easiest way to say Thank You, is to buy the real thing - even if you have to wait.
When I started in this hobby, I never thought that there would be a market for recasts. But when you suddenly stumble on really cheap dolls, that look like the real thing, you start to wonder. And yes, this hobby is expensive and it can take a long time to save up to the doll you want. And yes, sometimes you miss the opportunity to buy one, because it is a limited edition. But those things are not a reason to buy recasts.
Well, there is no reason at all to buy recasts. Absolutely non at all.
I waited a while for my Dollmore Mokashura Duyou. She is a Baby Doll, cute and sweet. I followed the work of the artists and made it more as a trip to something good, instead of getting frustrated by the long wait. The feeling of getting her home is something above the rainbow of happiness. The joy of doing the right thing. Being patient and supporting the artists is the right way to go.
