Absence Make You Have More Followers

Exciting! I have new followers. And all I had to do was be a total downer and run away from the blogosphere.

You know, sometimes there's a doll that you really don't like and then suddenly, you're in love.

My husband, a lover of all things that he thinks will mature in value (baseball cards, records, obscure "action figures") had a couple of dolls that he felt the need to give to me. He knew they would have a better life in my hands.

One of which was Hasbro's Miss Fear.
I really didn't like her. Her weapons were awesome and I really appreciated the cigarette holder but her clothes didn't fit well, her hair was insane and she didn't look anything like the hot cartoon on the box. Her makeup was terrible, her "Asian" eyes were just ridiculous.

So she ended up being a bit character in things. She played a bodyguard or a bouncer. She was so beefy that I never let her be a "lady".

I guess Ms. Fear's life turned around when my husband got me Dynamite Girls Spooky Sooki:

I absolutely loved Sooki. I mean, she was a goth girl! But she was also a teenager, so I had to give her a mother. Ms Fear (who I once gave a name but forgot it) was perfect. She wasn't too cute or fashionable to have a teenager daughter. And she looked mean enough to be a terrible mother and therefore would have a daughter who was a rebellious teen.

Since then, my love and respect for Ms. Fear has deepened. Now the Fears are kind of like the Carringtons of my doll world. (The Fears, minus Dani, who was only recently discovered to be a Fear:)

And once in a while Ms. Fear can really deliver a photo:

I still wouldn't cross her if I were you.

Anyone want to name Ms. Fear? It has to be Japanese. The other fears are Miho, Aoki, Yumi and Sooki.



  1. She seems to fit the part you've cast for her!
    Some name ideas....


  2. Oooh, Atsumi. I looked it up and it means thickness, strength, etc. I think it fits he really well. Thanks E!

  3. Oooh, she's awesome! It's tough to find dolls that can play the "older" characters, so big score! I wouldn't cross her either, lol.

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…
