Question of the Week: How do you cure dolly fever?

It’s easy to get obsessed with a specific doll. Flickr is horrible great for that. After all, all you need to do is put in those few key words and bam, you’re bombarded with images of your dream dolly. Next thing you know, you’re coming up with potential names for the doll, looking her up on eBay every hour (or so) and also checking all current threads on buy/sell/trade forums and thinking of what doll you can post up for sale to get the funds needed.

It’s official, you have the fever. It’s easy to get, even easier to diagnose. Your heart starts pumping a little harder when you see the doll online, when you see an active auction. The signs are easy to see and hard to ignore. But how difficult is it to get rid of the fever?

Some say that you absolutely need to buy the doll to cure yourself. Even if you have Kozy Fever and nothing short of mint will do. But you have things to sell, right? So you do, in a feverish state you let go of your lesser-loved dolls, half of the doll clothes and a few designer staples that you swore up and down that you’d never sell (never say never!). Others say you can get away with buying a substitute, but will you be happy with that little substitute? You’ll know the entire time that you could have saved up a bit more, sold a little more, to get that doll that you so passionately want.

I’m currently feverish for red-headed Kenner Blythe. (And hey, if you know anyone selling one, let me know…) It was so easy to see that I had a good case of the gimmes, but it is so much harder to cure it (drat!).

How do you cure dolly fever when you have it? What doll was it for?

    Buying is the only curse for me, hahahah! I had the Kenner itch for over 3 years… and it never went away!

    Damn it! I’m officially in the “looking her up on eBay every hour (or so) and also checking all current threads on buy/sell/trade forums” phase :/
