A nervous hello
« on: January 14, 2015, 10:57:43 AM »
Hi, I'm Matt. Normally I go by the moniker SickViking, but to keep myself from being googled here, I'm using my cousins name. He doesn't mind and as a recently came out transman, I'm a bit self conscious about my doll collecting and more specifically, my love love love of all things custom: re-paints, re-hair, tailoring! I do it all (though not as well as I'd prefer)

I'm 26 year old in California, hoping to go to school for bartending, cosmotology and arts.

I collect monster high dolls on and off, though I have several and am getting into Ever After High as well (I don't have any of the dolls but, Fleshtones! YESPLZ!) Frankie is probably my favorite for non custom dolls with Ghoulia coming in second. I collect other sorts of dolls as well, from Barbie, to BJD's, My Little Pony and most things in between.

I have several dolls on my desk to be customized, but I'm kind of slow going. I'm eager to meet other collectors and customizers and see what's been done.

Thank you so much for the warm welcome. I really hope to get at least one of them done by February and I can't wait to share.

Hello and welcome! I hope you enjoy spending time here with us at the MHArena ^.^ though a word of advice- by putting your old username in your first post, anyone Googling your old username may come across this thread and see that you've changed your moniker.

Welcome! I'm new as well and a guy doll collector too. You shouldn't be too self conscious about your doll collecting. Its something that makes you happy and you aren't hurting anybody so I don't see why there's any problem with it 😉 Also, with customizing practice makes perfect so I can't wait to see your work 😃

Welcome!! :hiya: I look forward to seeing your customs! My boyfriend is the one who got me into collecting dolls at all because of his enjoyment of them, so don't worry about it at all.

I hope you enjoy the forums! I'm pretty new here myself, but I can tell it's a pretty great community, and the people here are really nice. :thumb:

Thanks, and yeah, I took that into account. But I go by that name in a great many sites and it's much much less likely that this site will show up in a google search by using it just the once, and I wanted to give people here the opportunity to recognize me if they would XD

But thank you everyone for such a warm welcome, I honestly didn't expect so many people to post, maybe one or two. It's really getting me jazzed up to get back to work on my projects! As well as making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
