Well, I still live with my mom, and can't get a job no matter how many apps I turn in.
I've earned most my doll money through other dolls... I sell custom Monster High dolls, and take commissions for repaints, and that's what paid for my RS boy. (And all my obitsu's)
Jezabel, my Dollzone ying, was kind of a gift from my dad. I was going to save for him myself, until I realized he was no longer made, and Junkyspot had one in stock... I couldn't risk letting him get away from me, and my dad helped me out.
But yeah, most my BJD money is from commissions and other sales.
