Neon's Noncommittal Non-Challenge Thread 2021
Welcome to my noncommittal, non-challenge thread!

I'm really enjoying having a break from taking and posting (especially posting) dolly photos, and I wouldn't mind enjoying it for even longer, but Her Insane Majesty reckons that if I keep you from basking in her regal excellence for even just a moment longer, you'll all become irreparably depressed, so here you go, bask to your hearts' content!

I will post something here now and then (I'll number the photos, because I'm curious how many I'll take now that I'm not doing the challenge), and maybe delete the year from the title and keep using this thread in 2022, assuming I survive that long...

And aside from providing you with a photo of your secret Valentine, I have another one to share!

Today is my 12th Dollyversary! So I thought it'd be nice to post a pic, as well as the 2020 review I usually do in January and my shenanigary wishlist, but this time only in written form, I really don't want to take that many photos.

2020 Review

  • First doll of 2020 - Luts Model Delf Dia in limited Bubble Mint resin
  • Last doll of 2020 - Hanako-kun Nendoroid
  • Total of dolls added to collection in 2020 - 11 (10 doll dolls and 1 Nendo) - as seen in the photo above
  • Best catch of 2020 - honestly, all of them are, but Withdoll SWD Vera (the big pale girl) might be the most special doll I got last year, she's a limited sculpt and I've been longing for her for quite some time. You can't see it in this photo, but she's a vampire, and the perfect shell for an important OC of mine.
  • Favorite memory of 2020 - that would be a tie between acquiring Vera (I already have a new name for her, but I want to reveal it whenever I get to doing her face-up and posting the completed doll) and Azone Lien arriving the last day of the year, eventhough I wasn't ex§pecting her so soon (Her new name is Sayori).

Those would be the photo prompts. There's also a 'favorite photo' one, but i don't really have a favorite photo. Other than getting new dolls, the 20th year of 21st century, and the beginning of 21st year of 21st century, sucked. Through a clogged straw. Never before have I known such suckage. The world went bonkers, the situation in Czech Republic is so absurdly bad, I can't even, and it's getting on my last nerve. And it doesn't look like things will get better any time soon. I burned myself out with the photo and the doodle challenge, and I didn't manage to do most of what I wanted.

Of all the plans that didn't work out, I'm most upset about not completing my BJDs. I didn't manage to get all the needed supplies, but the main reason is that my creativity pretty much died last year. I hope I can fix it this year, but I'm going to be kind to myself in that regard, and will only get serious about big goals when the situation gets better.

My shenanigary wishlist for 2021, then, consists of
  • surviving 2021, alternatively becoming a ghost and possessing a doll (it would be nice if I managed to finish Vera before that, I'd like to use her as my main ghost-shell)
  • sewing a lot - fabric and haberdashery (as in the sewing stuff, not men's stuff) stores are still open, so it should be doable
  • trying to acquire art supplies for BJD face-ups
  • hopefully managing to complete the three BJDs I have right now (if I manage to get more, I won't get mad at myself for not finishing them this year), but not sweating it
  • getting new dolls, of course, because there's no way I'm not gonna, but I won't post a specific list, it never works out as planned anyway
  • finding ways to enjoy the hobby AND the life in general despite the seemingly endless shitshow outside

And that's it for today! There are things I want to post at the end of February, but I'm not promising anything.
