So which do you prefer, side glancing or centre glancing momokos? Do you have a preference for right glancing or left glancing?
I was looking at my collection on flickr the other day and I noticed that 12 of my 26 momokos have centre glancing eyes. Then I got a message from another collector, who mentioned that she preferred side glancing. And someone on flickr commented on the fact that I had more centre glancing petworks than side glancing.
I do love the way the centre glancing momokos look right at you, or the camera. They look more confident. But I also like catching a side glancing girl at just the right angle to make her look a bit thoughtful or shy.
I got my 11SS black strawberry because I loved her two tone hair, but it's a shame that she didn't have the centre glancing eyes of her sister, peacock. Same with my dazzling wedding rainy sky.
The thing that annoys me about the centre glancing dolls is that they often get given way more eyelashes. Look at 12SS!
I think my ideal momoko face up is centre glancing with just one or two eyelashes. Like th new AE QP doll. Also love her hat!
Just to mix things up a bit I've got 1303bk arriving on Monday, who will be my first right glancing momoko. Why are there so few of those?
Edit: I did some maths over the weekend, while I was confined to the sofa with a cold, and made these charts to compare my collection with the overall proportions of dolls released by Petworks and Sekiguchi. There was very little difference between the two companies, by the way.
