KiSS dolls: a lost obsession

So, many years ago, before Harry Potter, before Sims, I was into KiSS.  No, not Kiss the band, but Kisekae Dolls, which are paper dolls for your computer.  For a while, it was just about all I did.  Every time I was online (back in the old days, when we had only one computer, a dial-up network, and I had no idea at all what LJ was...), I would go to Otaku World and see if there were any new dolls.  I had a zip-drive disk devoted only to my kiss dolls.  Which actually wasn't even big enough, so I frequently had to delete dolls that weren't as good. 

As my pile of favorites grew, I stumbled across a few names that popped up again and again.  Today, due to a random entry on my f-list, I found several familiar names here on lj, completely by accident.   So I friended them.  I just want to say hi (if they're even reading this) to [info]batchix, [info]dovsherman (the person who runs Otaku World), [info]embyquinn, [info]glyndon, [info]goffchick, and [info]misssatori. I love all your dolls, and thank you for all the lovely hours I've spent playing with them. :D

Oh, and to anyone out there who's curious, KiSS dolls are generally based on Anime, so there are dolls out there for just about every Anime you've seen.  But they also tend to leak over into non-Japanese stories, movies, etc...such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, comic book heroes, and more.  Go check it out. :D
