I don’t hold on to any, and I don’t have a stock pile of kits, I buy them and paint them as soon as I can, no point having them if they are not going to be painted and enjoyed, my favourite that I have painted so far is LLE Azalea
Towa, Twin girls Abbie and Mya Kitagawa, BB Muffin, (BB Taite for a Cuddle baby) , are the ones I’m holding onto for myself as well as the Tibby Quads. I also have a Calix head that I want to make into a Clown.
The 5 that I leave out the most - Gabriella Schick, Liam Brown, Light Dark Twin boys Levi Brown and Aspen Taylor is painted by Ericas Precious Ones and Marcus Kitagawa painted by one person transferred to another and finished by me.
My Therapy Cuddle, milk drunk Baby with a breathing mech and heartbeat is Elyse Brace. She stays out always. Currently painting 3 year old June for myself as my Portrait Baby - we’ll see how that goes, hehe.
My favorites that I painted were Liam Brown, Li Lopes, Nino, Harlow Laura Tuzzio Ross. I have painted so many but have kept only a few. I have a stash of LE’s that I hang onto and wonder will I get to them or just keep ordering more, too many mores have happened. LOL
These are the ones I have been hoarding, with the intentions of painting to keep.Marcus by A. K. Kitagawa
Knox by Laura Lee Eagles
Lizzie by Adrie Stoete
Sunny by Joanna Kazmierczak
Miya by A.K. Kitagawa
Azalea by LLE
I also have 2 1st edition Chase kits and wanted to reborn one of those to keep. I recently got my hands on another Azalea to reborn to take to DOTW.
Wow, I’ve painted most of the kits mentioned here but I don’t hold on to any kits, I buy, paint and sell. I don’t even have any for myself. I’ve been wanting to paint one to keep but can never decide one which one because there are always new ones coming out
I love Laura’s hands!!! I was spoiled and painted Pascale first and it was love. I have my lUra and quinlyn half done but I do love them just maybe they came out at a bad time too many pretty kits at once
I have so many kits I will never get them painted before my time on earth is gone! LOL. I don’t even remember who I have anymore, that’s pathetic. I think my favorite kit is Miracle but I’m not that happy about the way she came out. She’s ok, just not what my vision of her was. I’ve thought about stripping her and redoing but she had rooted hair and I don’t want to deal with that and the oven for tons of paint layers, so she’ll probably stay like she is. Anyway she’s a keeper. All of my dolls are keepers, I have so many, don’t sell, afraid of scammers. Stupid huh?
If they weren’t LE’s do you think you’d still keep buying? I fear I’m gonna miss out. Y the time I realize I want one then I see some artists on reborns painting like 20 loulous and wonder how they did that
