How I Know I Am Getting Over

Internet-captured photo (this one and those that follow) of Tillie, a coffee complexioned BJD by Kaye Wiggs
I have wanted a BJD (ball-jointed doll) by Kaye Wiggs for quite some time.  JpopDolls introduced preorders for Tillie several weeks ago with a deadline to order of February 26, 2016.  I decided to give myself until the deadline to make a decision to order (this was before I gave serious thought to curtailing my doll spending).

How adorable is this big brown-eyed cutie?

With plans to use Paypal Credit in order to spread Tillie's cost over six months and having recently discovered an Etsy seamstress who makes clothing for Wiggs' dolls, things looked promising toward my eventual ownership of a Wiggs BJD.  At only 28 cm (roughly 11 inches), Tillie is the perfect size for my collection.  The price, although still steep, is a little less than the cost of larger BJDs by this artist.  So price-wise and size-wise Tillie is perfect for me.

After receiving the deadline-to-order reminder, it did not take long to fight the urge to do so.  Would I love to own Tillie?  Absolutely, but I can wait.  There will be other 28 cm dark skinned Kaye Wiggs offerings at a time when I am more comfortable that this doll buying frenzy is really under control.

How can anyone refuse those big brown eyes (even though they may or may not be that color when she arrives nude with random eye color, in need of a wig, clothing and shoes to new homes other than mine)?  My answer at this time:  I can.

But isn't she adorable?

    1. Thank you, April. Artists are in the business of making dolls. I am pretty confident Wiggs is not going to stop with Tillie.

  3. Oh, those eyes would definitely be hard to resist! However, I do admire your fortitude in resisting the urge to get her! I think this means that there will be another doll similar to her that will be coming home to you sometime in the future when the timing is right!

    1. The random eye color is bothersome. I believe that's the way most of the dolls through this website are sold, unfortunately.

  6. What ever you decide it will be ok. I wanted her too, but she was out of my retirement pocket. I'm quite sure something greater will come along.
    Stay strong.

    1. Thank you Lady Rose for the encouragement.

      "Retirement pocket." I like that description. My pockets are not retired yet, but I am planning toward that in the near future, so it is best that I curtail the spending now before I "really" have to so.
