I am actually working on making my own dolls via a 3D printing method. Oh and speaking of which, I make custom Doll accessories if you are interested. If not just know that I think your doll is really cool and ignore below...
So far I have made sailor moon wands for a 1/4 scale doll, World of war craft items, swords, shoes, eyes, instruments, and well lots of stuff. If your curious check out my deviation showing the process. [link]
Then yes, I think it might be that your first doll will be the one that holds the most sentimental value. I only have one that is mine right now. Soon to be getting another, but I know I would never get rid of my first. :]
I find it strange not to love your first dolly o.o I have a few that are worth big $$, but when I moved in with my bf and his roomies, I told every one of them "See this dolly with the black eyes? If there is a fire, GRAB him"...they all understand lol
