Christmas Haul





Hi Guys!

Pics to come but I couldn't wait to tell you about the doll stuff I got for Christmas. I got one of those World Peacekeeper dudes from Big Lots. I hate the gloved hands, but the faces are pretty cool. Any idea what kind of hands fit those guys? I have four that need some actual hands.

I also got a Dragon Body to go with my Dragon head. I can't reveal him yet. He's a character soon to be in a photostory.

Last but not least I got Comic Life! Man, nothing like this software to make you really want to organize your doll photos.

Also in 1/6 related news, I got the hubs Sideshow's Darth Maul which is awesome.

Really this Christmas was about the kid, who got loads of awesome stuff, but I was so happy to get some new goodies. This was just what I needed to jump start my doll inspiration.

I did some playing with Comic Life, so see below. I'm looking forward to doing little Intro/Bios for all my main characters as I learn the templates and backgrounds, etc. I was never into comic books, so I better study up!

Also my Peacekeeper has sort of a dude version of the outfit mentioned by Silent G. So I'm looking forward to ordering that and making some kind of a team of vigilantes or something...

Hope you guys had a great holiday. And now, introducing Alanna:

  1. Love, love, love that T.J. She's in a league of her own. I have that same Peace Keeper guy...he reminds me of Tyrese Gibson. LOL...

    Great story line.

  2. I love TJ too but I haven't been able to give her a personality yet. She's been so many things. I'm working on some reorganization of my dolls, so maybe she'll finally find a home! Thanks for the comment!

  3. I know what you mean. I do like the name Alana though. I put my TJ aside for a little while because I started falling for the play line girls but she's unique. I'm contemplating on whether or not I should buy another and keep her boxed before she becomes really hard to find. By the way...I wanted to ask you how is she holding up? I saw a blogger talk about the FR bodies not lasting because of a bolt that's inside the torso area but that the MZ's and older DG's don't have this problem. I've only had my TJ for about 4 mos and I'm concerned with her life expectancy. Have you heard they can last years or not so much?

    Thanks. :)

  4. I'd had TJ for a year now and she's done really well. I have 5 Dynamite girls now and they all stand up really well to my rough playing. My FR's don't do as well for me. I don't buy them much but my oldest are about 4-5 years old and they have pretty floppy joints. For all the money they don't seem like a superior doll. My two MZ's (about 2 years old) are doing really well too. I haven't bought any NuFaces and I hear FR2s have a pretty good body...

  5. Thank you so much for the info! I've only been collecting over the past 4 - 5 mos so I may ask more random questions. LOL...I think I'm gonna go ahead and purchase TJ Heart Breaker to have for future and call it a day on the Jason Wu dolls... like you said, they're pricey. It's really an investment but 5yrs is a good run for these type of dolls, you kind of get your moneys worth.

  6. I'd be happy to answer any questions I can! Though I do think Dynamite Girls are technically Wu dolls too. I'm not 100% on that, but he did join Integrity toys and revamped the whole thing.

    Oh and bear in mind, I am a rough player! I'm as bad as a four year old. I'm sure someone who lovingly displayed them and didn't throw them in a box would have much better luck!

  8. Wow, sweet haul! I can't believe you got Comic Life! It looks like so much fun, and it looks like you're already enjoying it. Can't wait to see more!

    The world peacekeeper guys can wear Dragon hands, though the skin tones are seriously limited, as far as I've found. (I guess you could paint them, but I'm too lazy, lol.) I usually buy mine from Monkey Depot, but you can find them on ebay too.

    Glad you had a Merry Christmas!

  9. Oooh, thanks for the info. I think I'm going to be buying a lot of Dragon parts this year.

    Happy New Year!

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
