When and why did you start collecting dolls and taking photos of them? Can you tell us what your beginnings looked like? What kind of dolls do you focus on? Do you also collect scale figures or Nendoroids?
I first bought a doll in 2011 and it was AZON’s 1/6 scale doll of Madoka, which I liked back then. I was not that interested in dolls at the time and I only started taking photos of them after buying a 1/3 scale (50 cm) doll by AZON in 2012.
The reason I started taking photos of dolls was seeing some nice photos that people took on Twitter and it made me interested in trying it out myself too. I was also able to make some friends through doll photography and that probably made me enjoy it even more. First, I bought some photobooks of dolls at Comiket and studied and practised by trying to imitate other people’s photos.
I take photos of Dollfie Dream by Volks. The reason I picked Dollfie Dream is that most of the doll clothes I like are for Dollfie Dream.
I have a lot of Madoka Magica figures. But I do not collect figures anymore, only dolls.
