WTF?

current mood: pissed off

Ashbet over at DoA (who is also at the NY Dolpa this weekend) posted this at DoA: -- seven of Volks' display dolls went missing overnight.

Here is the information about the missing dolls -- pictures are posted at DoA if you're interested. These are one-off, unique dolls. They do not have a headplate on the back of the head, they have an artist's signature inside instead.

(1) SD16 Girl "Ruby" w/black swan dress

(2) MSD Girl F-21 Fairy w/blue dress

(3) MSD Boy F-13 Fairy w/blue outfit (2 and 3 have matching outfits and long elf ears)

(4) MSD Girl F-22 Fairy w/yellow dress

(5) SD13 Girl F-29 w/yellow dress (4 and 5 have matched dresses)

(6) SD13 Boy F-31 Fairy w/dark green & red outfit

(7) SD13 Boy "Irvin" (FDQ Limited Model) w/Fairy default dress

If you hear ANYTHING about these dolls, please let one of the DoA mods and Volks know. Keep an eye on eBay, Y!J, and the DoA Marketplace, and they will be doing the same.

Ashbet says everyone at Dolpa is really emotional about this, and she hopes that no one has stolen the dolls for personal gain, and that they are returned without incident.

Mr. Shigeta personally stated that if someone took these dolls home and is willing to return them, no accusations will be made.

~~~~~~~

I can well imagine everyone at Dolpa right now being devastated by this - it's like getting a big slap in the face - someone knew about these dolls and stole them. Could it have been an attendee whose greed got the better of him/her? Could it have been hotel staff who didn't really know what they were but saw they were considered valuable by the attendees so they thought they could make a quick buck from reselling them? Or maybe someone who didn't really know the true value of the resin (after all, they're 'only' dolls, right?) and decided do some early Xmas shopping for daughters/granddaughters/nieces?

I can speculate until the cows come home but only the person or persons involved in the actual theft have the final answer.

WHO DID THIS???

What kind of JERK would do this? Don't they know that a doll is not just a toy, but a being that is there to be loved, spoiled and adored?

Obviously they're not a doll lover, just a common thief.

I hope their karma comes back and bites them in the a$$!

*grumble*

Some people only see the dolls as a way to make a profit. I've seen it with Yo-SDs, Bermanns and every limited doll out there.

I was lucky I got my Yo for the price I wanted to pay, and part of the deal was that he was going to a loving home. Well, Nigel and Talis haven't been separated since Nigel arrived so not only do I love him, resin loves him, too.
