Who’s the doll?
He’s an Asian ball-jointed doll made by a company called Cerberus Projects. He’s made from polyurethane resin, which is really strong and really expensive. It took me three years to save up for him. He cost $550 plus $60 for shipping, and his wig was $30. But he’s totally worth every penny.
Do you always dress alike?
The thing is, their outfits cost more than clothing for humans, and I can’t afford to buy my doll a $40 shirt and a $50 pair of pants, so I was like, I’m just going to make clothing. I did the pants with scissors and pins and whatever, and then I made us the sweatshirts.
Do you take him everywhere?
I bring him to the movies, and sometimes when I go out to eat with my friends. I bring him to school, but that’s dangerous because I don’t want to tell people how much he’s worth, because they’d run off with him. And if he were to break on me, I’d be devastated.
