Rearranging

Hello all,

I trust you had a good weekend. I wish I had another day.

It seems to me that I have a terrible and wonderful addiction. Not to dolls, that's too obvious. But to rearranging furniture. I have total control over two rooms in my house. The doll room and the baby's room. For this reason, these rooms have been rearranged at least 7 times each.

There's just always a better way to organize! So much of my Sunday was spent rearranging these rooms. This is my excuse for not having more pictures for you.

But anyway. So I'm not sure if I've discussed this, but I'm growing wearing of Fashion Royalty. I am really never satisfied when I get one. The first ones I got were Kyori, Veronique and Natalia from that Exotic Fusion Collection. At first, when all you know is Barbie, they look really exotic and amazing. Then you realize they have crooked eyes, loosey goosey joints and this terrible hunch. I never thought I would do it, but I'm stealing their bodies. (Later when I learn to repaint, I'll get them some new bods).

So a couple of years ago, the hubs got me an Eve Kitten Surrealist. I love her body. These legs that go on forever and these sort of delicate hands. But she wasn't bendable. I put off rebodying her. Something happens to my girls when I give them new bodies. Their personalities change.

But as she figures more prominently in my stories, I had to do something. She can't stand ALL the time.

Okay so here she was. She was a half Japanese stripper from North Florida. That explains the outfit. She always reminded me of Jean Kasem. Are you guys familiar with her? If not, feast your eyes.
And here was Veronique in her cock eyed beauty:


I was amazed at how easy it was to remove an Integrity head! After the heating it popped right off. So now here is our Miho as a flight attendant posing with my new luggage:
Have I mentioned how much I love my new camera?

Really, why is Valia so expensive? Just put Eve Kitten on a different body and they're practically the same thing.

Anyway that's all for now.

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
