Mind you, I'm not trying to start a debate as to which way is "better", I'm just curious as to what each person prefers. XD
I personally can't stand to leave them in their boxes. It just feels so... bland. XD I like to take them out and pose them, and set up my own little scenes on my display shelf. :) I do save some of the packaging to use as backdrops and such, though.
What do you do?
I take the regular ones out of the boxes and keep the boxes for some reason
But I keep the Comic Con exclusives in the box
I take them out of the box.
Taking them out of the boxes is so strangely satistfying. I keep my dolls sitting on the shelf next to my bed so I can turn and talk to them, feel their hair, etc. Stroking their hair brings me comfort.
Same here... they all come out of the boxes and the boxes get thrown out!
The only exception is my Deadfast Ghoulia... wish I had bought 2 at Comic Con!

I have a small shelf I display all my dolls on. Only one of my dolls is in the box, which is Comic Con Dead Fast Ghoulia. Debated on taking her out of the box..But I left her one. She's too pwetty to take outta the box. ; - ;
By the end of this week I should finally have Abbey and that will be doll #25 for me. I have a very special art project I plan on building which will allow me to take me dolls out of their boxes so that I can display them. As for my comic con Frankie & Ghoulia, they shall remain in their boxes for sure.
I de-box all my dolls but I did save two boxes, the Ghoulia Deadfast box and the Gloom Beach 5 pack carry case box. I love the look of the Deadfast box so much I wanted to save it and the Gloom Beach box I thought might actually be useful at some point for transporting dolls when I next move.
