    Default What was your family's first reactions?

    heh, kindda curious to know. what was your family's first reaction when you brought home your first BJD, and subsequent ones?

    for me, it was quite funny. my mum didn't see my boy till the 2nd day when i was going out. i was at the door wearing my shoes, when she came out of the lift.

    mum: going out?
    me: yeah

    mum: *notices teh carrier bag* what's with the bag?
    me: my friend's doll lah

    mum: eh? didn't your friend go back indonesia?
    me: yeah she did

    mum: she didn't take her doll with her?
    me: yeah she did.

    mum: *getting confused* then why's it with you?
    me: it's mine...

    mum: er. '_'
    me: i'm going out. *rushes to the lift*

    mum: *shouts across* don't spend so much $$ hor!! come back early!


    haha..... my dad is another side. i went over to his place for dinner, and left my boy on the couch behind a couple of cushions. unfortunately, my brother's cat found him and almost clawed him ><.

    dad went on probing him, not believing it's a male, and has no underwear.
    my step-mum quite liked my boy (well, she's got 2 porcelain dolls in the livingroom), finding him prettty and all.
    my brother on the other hand...
    lectured me for an hr for spending so much and what's a dollfie's value. he ended it off saying "you know, i was once like you at your age. i had spent $300 on a single magic:the gathering card." =o=;

    i soooo don't wanna imagine what happens when my SD comes in ><

    My mom was the one who got me my first doll, so understandably, she was both worried at dropping so much money online, and curious. When I first unwrapped my boy, she went, "Omg! Look at those beautiful eyes! Do we have any clothes for him??"

    My dad...wanted to toss my boy out the window. ^^;; He's since mellowed out and just ignores them now, but if he realizes I've gotten a new one, he'll chide me for it.

    Haha this sounds fun 8D.

    My family reactions are funny.
    All of them had seen his photos online, so when I brought him back home they only care about other stuffs like clothes/size/wigs/ bla bla


    Dad:
    - "So cute 8D, he's even more pretty than a girl!"
    - "Leave him home then go back to Sg and buy another one for u " LOL [ Okay he's childish ]
    - " His clothes are so nice, I bet they are even better than mine! *pulls a jealous face XD* "
    *lifts the doll onto the cups hanger above and take photos*
    When I took him to the dining room he started posing him and talk about how posable/real he is 8D.
    And he kept saying he's cute.


    Mom :
    " His hair is so soft"
    " My god his legs are long"
    " The clothes are so nice/cute"
    She takes care of him =D, like when I'm not around she always take him to my room for safety reason, and she's the only one who cares about not putting him in sunlight.

    Sis:
    " It's interesting ~"
    " Handsome/ good looking face 8D"
    " Lemme see his ***** "
    Then she always do tricks to him to tease me lol. Like giving him lame/weird posings and let him say bad things to me XD.

    My dogs keep sniffing whenever he's around. One of them likes to chew, so I always keep him on higher place ._.

    My family is cute and absolutely lovey-dovey towards dollfies. I've been telling them about my intention to get one 2 years ago actually X3. When I said I've ordered the 2nd one they asked for photos and even talked about me practicing face-ups and all XD.

    I haven't actually got a BJD, but the first time I told my mom about them and showed her pics, she said they were really pretty. : D

    xD My brother only likes my MSDs, and my mother absolutely adores my girl and spoils her rotten. She insists Ilaeya is the most beautiful doll ever, but hey, she's biased. She also keeps prodding me to do my own faceups. xD

    8D Guys always like miniature things, so MSD maybe the size they prefer. As for some others the reason of disliking SDs is because they are... jealous of how handsome the dolls are LOL. Some of my guy friends reacted that way towards my doll XD.

    I guess mom are always the most understanding member of the family ^w^. She's the one who let me buy my dolls and care a lot about the doll(s) 8D. And when my mom's best friend saw him and go all crazy over him she went proud as if he's her child LOL.

    My mom thought he was a girl.
    He said his eyes looks like the cat down my flat >.>
    I don't know what was she thinking.

    My dad didn't care, but till now he often joke about it...though I consider his remarks as annoying and sometimes offensive.

    my mom's was (after i said he was a boy) "that's a boy?!"

    and after repeatedly saying that and not believing my insistence that xar was just a typical pretty-boy, i had to pull down his pants and prove it. XDDD

    she still maintains that he's a girl, though. just with...extra parts. =_=;;;

    family outcast

    EDIT: might as well expand and add in more detail i guess.. ( ' ,')

    Mom - first to find out, neutral

    Dad - found out about a few days later (or within two weeks of arrival?). Argument, nearly threw Cammy out wouldnt speak to me for a few days (doesnt really matter since our working hours are so different we only really see each other sometimes at night to have supper or something).

    friends - one is scared of dolls, one is neutral (unless i make Cammy dress up as kamen rider), one is interested in joining the hobby but i wont rush him to get one since he's the youngest of our group still must budget montly on an allowance.

    other relatives - havent shown + not eager to show them.


    -thank you for reading

    tsukushi>> i just realized that i kinda did the same thing you did. i told my mom that xar was...kyoru's. -.- and a week or so later, i told my mom that i'd bought him from kyoru since he was so fickin' cute.

    i doubt she believes it, but at least she didn't take up issue with him. ^^;;

    My parents didn't really say anything. I believe my mom is kinda happy that I got a girl doll first though xD and she's pretty interested and has been supportive so far. My dad... although he didn't really say anything as well, he proceeded to explore the mechanism of the doll, and asked me to open Ashlay's headcap and show him the joints ^^; In the end he decided that these dolls are good investment and supports me to dabble in BJD-related business (even though sometimes his businessman viewpoint bothers me, it's still okay)
    PERVERT AND PROUD OF THAT FACT~!

    8D I forgot another incident.
    When my dad first knew that my doll has *that thing* he was really surprised, as if he's worried that I bought a *erhem* doll LOL.

    But things are all fine when he saw him 8P
