Photos!

I have a zillion things on order right now, from doll stuff to kid stuff and nothing had arrived yet! Each day I return home looking at my front step in excited anticipation and each time it's just a stack of flat packages which can only mean one thing: comic books for the Hubs.

*Sniff*

The day before yesterday was much of the same. I didn't even look at the pile of mail.

But then, the Hubs sang, "There's something from Hong Kong...."

YAY! Birthday prezzies!

He got me two punk rock girl outfits. So cute, down to the little safety pins! Here are my models:

The stockings are too big for skinny Dynamite legs, but they'll be fine for some of my other girls. The best part is that if you remove the safety pins, they're like another outfit. The jacket might lose the safety pins. Too many pins and you look like a total poseur.

And yesterday, this arrived: (Hey Smidge, didn't you just win the same one?)
I'm not impressed. The shoes are worse quality than any other Barbie shoe I've ever owned. But they redeemed themselves with the silver compact that actually has a little powder puff inside. Aw, now I'll have to get that other one with the snake skin bag. I wish I could just pick and choose what I want from these packs...

Since I'm taking pictures, I might as well show you my wall panels which still need a little work before I attach them to my shelf:
After some paint touch up, I'll add my stirrers (painted white) to frame the windows and hide my booboos.
Okay so that's it for now, kids. This weekend I hope to get these walls done, some carpet installed, temporary flooring in (I know, I always say it's temporary).

But what I really need to do is file my stuff away. I have a box of "to be filed" items from photostories, or shoots. Like if I set up a bar, all the bottles and glasses never go directly to the 'Kitchen' box, they just end up in catch-all box with the other accessories used. I really have to clean that box out as well as the rest of the doll room.

Do you guys have that issue too? Also I think it's time to say "see you later" to some furniture. I keep this metal coffin thing around and I don't know why. Time to box it up and stick it in the shed along with all my naked Barbies who will be my repaint victims one day... Here's the coffin by the way. That Sooki, so dramatic.

  1. LOL! Isn't "There's something here from Hong Kong!" just the nicest thing to hear? Those outfits are awesome! Your girls look so kickass! I have total addiction to mail day, too (don't we all!). Days I get nothing (or boring crap), I'm so deflated! Addiction? Naaaaah!

    And yup, I just won the same BB pack! Was that a birthday gift? I was pretty surprised (well, not surprised, but you know) that like 2 of the pairs of shoes were just the typical 10 cent shoes that come with any dollar store doll, just painted to match the set. But the powder puff is adorable, and a couple f the shoes fit FR, which is a bonus for me. (Plus, it was a free gift, so I can't complain to much, lol) But, I soooo agree, I wish I could pick & choose-- I want that snake skin bag, too!

    But, I suppose Mattel knows that too, so they package one good thing in each set, along with tons of junk, knowing we'll buy the junk to get the good stuff. Or maybe I'm just paranoid. They could possible be that evil... right? :)

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
