Name: I'd rather be called by my nickname Pixie (which my real name is on my old watermarks even though I've always despised it)
Meaning behind your username: I wanted my username to share similar sounds as Lucian's name (my first doll). Lucid means expressed clearly. Requiem is a an act or token of remembrance whether in music piece or figuratively. So it really just means an easily understood memorial. I liked the way it sounded together and the meaning it created.
Favorite music: I listen to all types of genres. I'll listen to almost anything as long as it isn't country or a subgenre like bluegrass or something (unless it's like really old country like Patsy Cline).
Favorite movie: What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Edward Scissorhands have been my favorites for a long time. I've honestly never sat and thought if any newer movies have made it into my favorites rankings yet. I'll have to think on that.
Favorite TV show: More recently (current and last few years) my favorites have been Shameless, Game of Thrones, Hemlock Grove, American Horror Story, Daredevil. And then I will always love The Golden Girls. I grew up watching them, I still love the show. I also like crime tv (things that are shown places like ID Channel, not like CSI and all of that).
Hobbies/interests: Collecting BJDs (obviously), writing (all of my BJDs are OCs), photography, crafting random things, I also loosely collect a lot of other things like Gen 1 & Gen 4 MLP and things based on shows or movies that I like.
Random fact about yourself: My favorite food would probably be a hotdog.

4. Which doll have you had the longest? How long has it been?
That would be Lucian my tan DZ Mo. He was my first doll, so I've had him since I started the hobby in 2010.
5. Which doll is your favorite?
Oh jeez. I DO play favorites, and I have many favorites. Ash, Sabbath, Miach, and Bane will always be 4 of my favorites (and I've had them all a relatively long time). And I am absolutely smitten with Eiji and Tuesday out of my newer dolls. I think once I get Cam finished he will move up into the favorites ranking too.
6. Are you waiting on any dolls now? If yes, which one(s)?
Not currently. I've had 3 new ones this year and I think it will be a while before I'm waiting on any more new ones.
7. What is your grail doll?
Soom Gluino Mechanic Vampire in GS. I am so upset I missed him and I fear I will never find him now. I would settle for just the head even. He is perfect for an OC that has been ever so hard to shell. Also Crobidoll Ho-Bin in Tan which will never happen, but that's why he's a perfect grail I suppose. - I also usually list Dream Ripper Heliot in GS and he would be an alternate choice for the character I want the Gluino fir.
8. Did you learn to do something new because of this hobby? (e.g. photography, painting, sewing)
Not really, but I keep trying. I've tried my hand at sewing in the past and was awful at it. Sewed a couple of things and gave up for a while when my life got busy but I hope to get back into it soon. I do feel like I've gotten better with still life photography because of them.
9. Have you made any friends you might otherwise not have because of this hobby?
Absolutely. I have made some friends in this hobby that I talk to more regularly than friends I made outside of it and have had for longer. I have met a lot of nice and amazing people in this hobby and still have regular contact with a handful.
10. What are your doll plans for this coming year?
I need to make myself let go of a few sculpts that are probably never going to get finished. I think I would feel better if I could just make myself let them go. I really hope to buy new bodies for both Cayson and Cam. Maybe get Eiji started with his tattoo work. I'm going to try my best to stay away from impulse buys (which I am so good at) and work on finishing up current projects and expanding wardrobes.
