I do not make, sell, or traffic in bootleg/recast dolls or any other product.

I do not provide information on where or how to buy them.

Thoughst on two recent bjd, NO MORE HATE

There is a confession about pro-recast hypocrisy here .This confession is worth discussing.

Firstly, as Resinmuse noted, simply wishing for the existence of a certain recast is NOT the same as buying it for the intention of recast. No one in the thread discussed buying the doll to send it to be recast.

Secondly, as Resinmuse also noted, not all people who buy recasts have the same code of ethics. People have different morals and ethics no matter what groups they are a part of. Just because you disagree with those ethics doesn't necessarily make them wrong.

Things will always be at risk for bootlegging, theft, piracy, and copying when they are subject to limited availability and high prices. It's just the way things are. We are allowed to voice sadness at this and get excited about the possibility of attaining things, even if there is no way we could or even would (I think the Kinoko Juice doll is just darling, but I would not personally purchase a recast of one).

Then there is this confession.

To compare recast buying with such hot button issues shows a lack of common sense and is nothing but extremism, no matter what side of the debate you are on. Do not bully people for their views and beliefs or else you become exactly the things you hate. (I believe Nietzsche said something to that effect….and I apparently can't spell his name sooo...)

There are pro-recast people who are pro-life, just like there are anti-recast people that are racists. Having one belief does not preclude another. This is like the antiquated atheist vs Christian debate, as in just because you don't believe in a god all the sudden you're a child-sacrificing cannibal who kicks puppies and wants to murder everyone. Or alternatively… being a Christian automatically makes you an uneducated moron who wants to return to the Dark Ages and burn people at the stake. Or you're all Westborough Baptist Church. Seriously? Assuming does make an ass out of U and ME, so let's avoid it, okay?

I'm a pagan, I'm privately pro-life, politically pro-choice. I don't steal (even though some of you might disagree), but I have done so to survive. I don't lie. I don't cheat; I cheated once in 3rd grade, got caught, and had to go to confession so I never did it again. I did, and still do, stack the Candyland deck to make sure I make it to the Lollipop Princess first just because I think she's cute. I also happen to be very anal about Scrabble rules. I'm not racist. I have no opinion on the sex trade (when it is choice not forced). I've never attempted to summon the devil by sacrificing a black cat (though I had a black cat who recently died due to coyote attack), though I do tell fortunes via tarot cards and use Ouija boards. I try to be the best person I can be, though I know I have flaws. I've had a parking ticket, but I never speed. I also purchased bootleg dolls once upon a time. Yeah. I'm a real monster.While I no longer own the bootlegs and have since ceased buying them, the point of this remains the same:

Everyone has a story, a reason for their morals, a reason they are who they are. The fact that they are pro-recast or anti-recast doesn't mean a fucking thing. Both sides need to grow up and remember this.

Please, let's just stop the hate. 

I apologize for the rant.

Thanks for reading, and happy collecting!


  1. Another great post. Especially love the No Hate symbol.

  2. Thanks ResinMuse. Feel free to share it, pass it around, whatever. :P

  3. Hello. I don't know you, but thank you for leaving older posts up for people to learn from. I hope you know they are still being viewed and used by beginners like me.

    The person with that comment re: people who are anti recast, bless their heart. Mother always said to say nothing if I can't say anything nice, but that person has very twisted logic. Abortion beliefs and doll hobby have nothing to do with one another. Some dolls are religious, but a doll collector's religion has nothing to do with their morals or collection or skill. If they want to buy recasts but can't do so without inspecting and demonizing anti-recast people perhaps they have a problem with their own choices and must grasp at straws to justify their behavior.

    1. Thanks for commenting and for reading. ^_^ Even though my stance has changed on recasts, my stance on bullying hasn't. I want people to be able to see the evolution of my thinking, so I'd never hide or try to erase the old posts and pictures.

      I fully agree with everything else you've said- people who need to demonize other people to try and validate their own beliefs and justify their behavior really have some thinking to do on just why they think they need to do this.

      This is a really good point you've made, and I'm really glad you shared. You've got me thinking about the whole subject again haha

      Have a wonderful weekend, and a happy holiday if you celebrate it. Also, apologies for how long it took me to post your comment. It didn't show up on my notifications until today. Yay technology. XD


Thanks for reading! <3 I try to follow up on every comment my readers make.
