Hmm, I dunno what's wrong with me but I'm bored of dolls. Maybe it's because I know that all spare money will be going towards Christmas. Maybe it's because I lost the little thingy that attaches my camera to my tripod. Maybe it's due to Thanksgiving preparation and sick babies, which provided no time for my little friends. Maybe it's because my photostories are waiting for Comic Life and for a Dragon Body for my new boy head.

Well at least my heart still skips a beat when I see my dolls in their homes, doing the same thing they did last week. And maybe I'll post some crap pictures just so I can take down the set and start the Xmas set.

Maybe I'll get my mojo back at the end of the year with my new dolls/equipment/software.

Maybe I just need a nice trip to Big Lots where I will say I'm going to get tree lights, but will come out with arms full of cheap doll stuff...

Hey do any of you collect 16 inch dolls? I have a cast iron pot belly stove that I'd love to unload. I bought it by mistake and for some reason I hate returning things...



  1. Sounds to me like you've got a lot of different things all pulling at your energy and your attention! I don't think you're bored with them (not if you can admit that your heart skips a beat when you see them set up in a diorama!!)

    Like I said before chickie--take it easy and don't push yourself. You'll get the "itch" to play with them again---but maybe you need a little breathing room first, eh?


  2. Having colleagues that understand you and your hobbies and obsessions has been really wonderful. Thanks Erica!

  3. I collect 16 in dolls... I don't know if you have given it away yet! Love our blog by the way!

The Arrival of Kala

My first first-hand BJD has arrived!  She's a Dollmore Keeley Sum purchased through Denver Doll Emporium. She arrived with a broken foot joint so DDE is getting Dollmore to send me another. It was fairly distressing to open the package to THAT surprise, but she's so beautiful, she immediately captured my heart.

I recently made arrangements to sell Sunnie and I can see it is totally for the best. THIS is what a new bjd owner should feel. Something like maternal pride, an obsessive need to care for her.

Her working name is Kala (not Eden anymore). We'll talk about her back story in another post but for now, all you need to know is she's an early Neolithic woman. Here she is wearing a wig by D. Resin on Flickr. She's amazing.

This is Kala's stuff I've been collecting.

Here is a size comparison of the Dollmore Model F body and the older Dream of Teen by Dream of Doll body.

You know me, peeps, I have a need to make doll environments as strongly as my need to h…

So Where Were We?

Hello my friends!

Man I have been slacking. I got so into the Roku situation that I have completely neglected the dolls. And since my car died and I now have a car note, my insane doll shopping spree is at a close. Except I found the 1960s Reading Deluxe Dream Kitchen (minus table and chairs) at a thrift store for $35. Then there was this cute pitcher there (on the dishwasher) and a Gibson guitar, so...(forgive the cellphone pic).

Anyway I hope to getting back to a craft/diorama focus in my doll work.

Can I be honest? I am terrified of my camera. I've avoided it since my last post. Setting up lights takes forever and changing them for every scene and the cords and the scary wiring in this house. Then taking 100 pics and those being all wrong and doing it again after I already took down all the damn lights. Ugh.

So whatever. When I do a glamour shot I'll fiddle with lighting and post production. But for photostories, eff it.

The following shots are done with a flash and auto-f…

BJD: Vinyl to Resin

So I think people really wants to know why I am taking this plunge, or maybe you don't give a crap but I'm going to tell you anyway.

Maturity: Not saying that 1/6th folks aren't mature!!! But there is something very mature about the BJD hobby that is populated with so many young people. Depending on the company or customizations, you may have to wait up to forty effin' weeks. That is how long it takes to make a human. It takes patience. And you're going to take time to make the right choice. I'm resigning myself to not seeing my first doll until my bday in November. The dolls and accessories are not always cheap. You have to budget yourself, save up and earn that dang doll.You need a gentle touch when you're handling these dolls. You can't afford to damage them. They make special travel cases for them! Dropping them could mean seriously damaging a nose. They yellow in time and if you keep them in the sun. You have to find a place to keep them safe.(Crap…
