Hi everyone! 

I am new to this forum but been in the hobby for over 10 years. I started out with resin dolls and since the release of Kagamine Rin, I am now a vinyl collector too! 😊

I am learning how to do faceups and also improving on my photography of my dolls 💕

You can find me on instagram @_potpourii

I look forward to making new dollfie friends

Thank you! 💕 Yes let's encourage each other! I get frustrated a lot with my skills xD but I want to keep improving!

Welcome. I hope to see photos of your girls here in the forum soon!

Thank you! 💖 Yes I will share photos soon, once I figure out how xD what is a good image host? I used Flickr in the past but can't figure out how to do it on a mobile device now.

Thank you so much! 💕 Yes it was a leap for me, I was quite apprehensive about vinyl. But once I got used to it, I'm having so much more fun with my vinyl crew!

I've seen people using Flickr as you said but honestly I don't know about image hosts. Generally I use the files-dragging option the forum has. Maybe @baldylox or @BeyondTime could answer your question. They're like lords of the forum (and vynil dolls as well).

The Vinyl Dolls are the overlords.

You will need to get past New Member status before you can use all the features of the forum. Once you do, image posting is as simple as hosting the image, and then pasting its URL into the post. 

The forum guidelines are here: https://www.dolldreaming.com/guidelines/

The difference between Dollfie Dreams and Heroin? Heroin is illegal, Dollfie Dreams probably should be.

Thanks! I'll slowly work my way there ^-^ I've been on Den of Angels for a long time but decided to join here too, because I've had a lot more interested in Vinyl for the past few years x3

Ha ha, this made me laugh.  :)  I'm no lord of this or any forum but I've definitely been around a while.  😉  Both of us are moderators as well so please do ask us for help if need be, that's why we're here!

I gave up counting the girls I own, they keep multiplying and won't stop.

Thanks! It's nice to have such a warm welcome from so many members ^^ 💕 Also I totally relate to your signature xD I keep hoping Volks would churn out more boys to give me a break, then I can finally focus on building a diorama and furnishings!

Welcome! I follow you on insta hehe~ Your Rapunzel is so cute 😭 (and Lettie too!)

Also I really love the feel your photo's have, very soft and warm 😊 It also shows the beauty of the dolls very well. I keep looking at them and thinking: what kind of setup is this, what lights do they use? 😆 Would you be willing to share some of your secrets? 🙇🏼‍♀️😂

 

I hope you will have a great time here! 😄

Wow thank you so much for your kind compliments and support! 🥰 Rapunzel and Lettie appreciate it too 💕

Sure, I'm happy to share my setup details if it helps other doll owners enjoy their hobby more! 💕 I'm just an amateur too and so I'm still learning as I go. Feel free to DM me here or on instagram if you have any questions ^^

I use a mirrorless camera with a macro lens, umbrella lights and recently, I've been learning to use bounce flash ^^

I got my start in doll collecting as a resin collector too. 
I haven't purchased my first vinyl yet, but theyre so tempting. 😉

Thank you! ^^ 

I took a while to warm to the idea of vinyl dolls, I was terrified of staining and the internal skeleton wear and tear. And also, I was afraid of adding another line of dolls to collect lol. I finally took the plunge with Rin and I haven't looked back! Fortunately I've not had any issues so far. They are definitely a lot more fun to pose and lighter to carry around.
