Weekend Plans

Man, I've never been so happy to see Friday. How can you be so exhausted all the time, but then have so much energy? Maybe I am tired of work and only have energy for dolls and other small adorable creatures?

I actually have plans with fully grown human type people this weekend so I don't know how much work will be done. But I always say that and cram in as much as possible.

The Year of Luxury doesn't actually begin until October 31st but I'm getting a head start. We're getting our car checked out on Saturday and if I don't spend a month's rent on repairs (doubtful, it's just the check engine light that's been on for like a year and our mechanic is awesome), then I am buying myself a luxurious gift.

I'm not going to say what it is because you if actual doll collectors beat me to ebay and buy it, I might cry. No seriously, I will. I'm really hormonal. But I will tell you after I buy it and take many pictures.

You know, Josephine's hair is a hot mess. I am having a hard time getting a grip on her short hair so I can wrap it around rollers or straws. I have used Elmer's Glue to style hair before. My Legolas Ken has gone from New Age Dork in touch with his feelings to....

...Rockabilly Rock Star with a little help of Elmer's Glue


So maybe Josephine will get her little spit curls back. Elmer's Glue does wash off after all. Perhaps I should invest in some doll wigs?

In other news my mom is giving a sewing class starting next month and despite having two daughters, all my sewing will go towards dolls. Hee. Why not make some lovely shift dresses in luxurious fabrics?

But this weekend, it will be:
Finish wainscoting
Install balcony doors in bedroom
Put up Foyer wall
Put up bathroom wall in Dani's house
Relax?

How about you guys? What doll projects do you have lined up?

Have a great weekend!

smooches,
dani

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
