Meet, Bobby, adorable skull critter by Dominic Qwek. One of the first things I did on getting back home was to open up this guy. I'd ordered him a few weeks ago but of course I haven't been at home to open him.

He's a blank resin figure sculpted by Dominic Qwek who sculpts a whole bunch of awesome monster stuff and sells some pretty amazing blank resin kits.

Bobby is so adorably creepy! I can't wait to get started on painting him, it'll be a great new challenge as it's so different to anything I've painted before. Check out the website if you'd like to see what a pre-painted Bobby looks like.

I thought I'd do the 30 BJD Questions tag and answer a few questions a week because it's an easy thing to do while on vacation. Also I thought this would be fun opportunity to re-post some of my embarrassingly old doll pictures!

You can find the full list of questions over {HERE} I'd love to know your answers so share your doll stories with me in the comments!

8) What is your favourite size?

Yosd! It's funny because I scoffed at this size for the longest time, it seemed weird to me to have a childish looking doll. The pukifees were fine as they were very cartoony but the Yosd size seemed more realistically child like which I found odd. I think I changed my mind when I got a Littlefee as a commission,  it was crazy cute so I got myself a LTF Lewi. As soon as I opened the box I thought, YES, because it was such a great size, a real playable size. Yosds just fit in the hand really nicely, they so easy to cart around and pose. I dragged my LTF Lewi all over place lol.

9) What is your least favourite size?

I don't think I have a least favourite size. I used to think I hated the bigger dolls but since getting my Venitu I've come to realise what I hate is dolls that don't pose well. It really boils my blood when I can't get a doll to do a simple thing. I know posing isn't an issue for some people, especially if you're buying to collect and display only, but I buy to use. I've heard people say things like, "this doll poses great, it even sits unassisted!" and I just balk at that because for the price tag on these things you're damn straight it had want to be able to sit unassisted! I mean what's the point of crafting joints if it can't use them? In summation, it's not the size that matters, it's how it can be used ;)

10) Post a picture of a doll and an animal!

12) What do your friends think of your dolls/dolls in general?

I don't know, I'm sure the ones that aren't into dolls think it's weird, but I doubt anyone I know is much surprised that I'm into odd stuff. I think for those who've known me a long time it's just another odd thing I'm into.

I like flowers and I like close-up photography, so here is an obscene amount of flower close-ups for you. The gardens here at my Dad's place are so well maintained and just gorgeous (though these aren't all from his place).

My favourite is the bee with the big chunk of pollen on his leg, so much pollen! Also the purple ones at the bottom are pretty spiffy. If only I had the requisite botanical knowledge to label them all for you.

Wandering around at Lesmurdie Falls with my Dad and snapped these. They're not great, it was the middle of the day so the light was just really harsh and unflattering and I couldn't get into a good position, but it's a nice setting all the same.

I did feel a bit like a ninja balancing precariously on rocks, trying not to fall in.
