The Weekend in Pictures.





And that's about all you're going to get as an apology for my picture quality today. I was rushing so I didn't even bother trying to get a good picture out of this.

I did loads of work this weekend, mostly the fun part which is putting little details in the rooms.

Dani and Felix's kitchen:

Tea Time in Josephine's Living Room:
Josephine's Foyer:
Josephine cozying up with Gypsy Ken. That's temporary flooring by the way:
Josephine's kitchen. Voila! Brie avec baguette et vin. Tres magnifique!
Nadia sees her crush Miho at the record store. "Did I wave too hard? Look too happy to see her?"
The Vinyls audition a new keytar player. And boy is she cute...
The Dynamite girls meet for dinner.


Finally figured out a personality for Alanna (Dynamite girl TJ): Super rich spoiled socialite. So she HAD to have the Jonathan Adler couch.
Josephine's balcony door. Meh, I'm not thrilled with it. Consider it a work in progress.

Let's talk about another disappointment. Josephine's bed. It just sucks. The duvet is okay but really Josephine needs a much grander bed...
One last disappointment. I tried desperately to straighten Gypsy Carmen's hair this weekend and this is as far as it wants to go. I must have dipped and poured boiling water over her 100 times! Why is she still so frizzy?! So maybe I'll resign myself to this thick naps. Any other tips on what to do? All my other dolls have straightened beautifully. :(



That about does it! Have a great day everyone!

Oh and I did order my Luxurious item #2! Fashion Royalty luggage!!! I'm so excited.

smooches,

  1. You've got some fantastic rooms put together! Fantastic!I hope you do get around to taking some more pics of them.

    About the hair--I can think of two possible reasons....

    1) is the hair might have ended up "over cooked" during one of the boil perm/straightening attempts. That can happen and the hair gets frizzy.

    2) you might have to actually "stretch" out the hair (where the waves are) I don't really think that's as likely but it could be...

  2. Thanks Corset Kitten! Maybe this is fate telling me to start attempting some re-roots? Hee hee!

  3. Hehe! It could be!
    I don't know if you'd tired it, but you could also thoroughly wet her hair & work some heavy duty-hold type hair gel in. That will help with the frizz factor. The only negative is that you'll probably have to do it every month or so (wash it out and re apply) to keep it from getting old and flaky.

    I've just broken down and ordered my own FP Kyori. ;)

Doll Dyeing

So I had this BJD friend with this sad doll that I just fell in love with.  I knew they had issues bonding and I knew that baby had to be mine. I told her to let me know if she ever wanted to sell. She didn't do that but listed her anyway. (I thought we were cool, man.)  I was very lucky that the first person who wanted her stepped aside.  I thought if I lost this girl I would have a breakdown.

You see, she was very special.  She had a history.  Here's what I can gather:  she was purchased by this shady ass dude in the hobby. Everyone knows he is shady. 
So he hired a faceup artist to paint the face and give her scarring. He never explained that he wanted raised scars, not gashes in the resin.  I've seen the proof that she wrote up the agreement for this guy and the work was just GORGEOUS.

He claims she damaged it. Whatever.  So apparently there were attempts from this guy to sell her with no luck and he eventually gave it away and my doll acquaintance won her.  She dyed h…

Re-introducing Aniata and her Diorama

Hello Doll Peeps!

I have loads of new items for sale so click on the shopping ladies on the right. Most of the first tier stuff is gone so lots of discounted stuff!

When we last spoke, my doll was named Kala. I had posted her in the BJD Addicts group and a few people remarked that she looked like a Taino. My family is Haitian and my husband's is Puerto Rican, the Tainos lived in both. I thought this was fortuitous. So I emailed my aunt, a fan of the Taino and told her about the doll and that I needed a new name. Kala was always supposed to be temporary and I feared it was taking hold.

She said, "I feel like her name is Aniata." And I knew it was right. It's hard to get the tongue around but if you just pronounce the T softly, like in Anita, then it's much more natural.

Anyway introducing Aniata!  (Doll nudity ahead.)



I've been working on the hut like crazy since the last post. While I waited for paint and glue to dry, I made Aniata stuff. I made her necklace…

An Official Farewell

Hi Guys,

I don't know if you're still reading this but I'm officially taking this blog offline. It was so fun to be part of the 1/6th scale doll community and on Facebook at least, I still am. But I feel like the BJD community is mostly on other platforms.

I'll always be at vitaplastica.com and you can reach me at the gmail of the same name.  Hey, I may even start a blog over on the site, so who knows?

Here's a picture of nearly all my doll family (missing Doll Chateau Alma, who doesn't have a face up yet, and an Impldoll Martin head.)


EDIT: Blogger will STILL not let me comment. haha.  Anyway, due to the very positive response, I will not take this blog down. I remember how heartbroken I was that Smidgehouse didn't leave hers up. So I'll keep this here forever, okay?

I might even post a link to any blog posts on my website. See you...always!


It's be great collecting and growing with you!

smooches,
dani
