Cravings

Forget pregnancy cravings, I have doll cravings!

I've been obsessed with the idea of creating a goth style house for Sooki but she's 16 and making her an emancipated minor is just going to reek havoc with my storyline.

And I decided that my dolls are frozen in time and not allowed to age. Sorry Sooki, you're 16 forever.

But this goth palace idea keeps haunting me. hahaha no pun intended. There is so much cute goth/Victorian stuff out there. So many ideas for wall coverings and delightfully spooky 1:6 scale goodies to hunt for.

So after much internal debate, I've decided to get Simi from Ashton Drake:



Okay is she worth $150? No, not really but I'm a little in love with her. And really, Sooki's adorable and could go the Harijuku Goth Lolita route, but Simi's dead sexy (oh my god, really the puns are not intentional!) and could be my dominatrix goth chick. All my crazy patten leather get ups will have a home!

I can use Stinker's Stuff walk in closet tutorial and give her a little chamber of torture. Hang a gimp in there and we're all set. Also the hubs saw all manner of 1:6 S&M tools on the internet that I can buy.

And there are all sorts of furnishings I've had my eye on as well:


Of course one has to consider that I will be out of work for 3 months and I can't actually afford Simi, but I might as well start window shopping, right? And building my closet dungeon!

  1. Wait a minute!!! I have seen owner photos of Simi and her lips are pink. Friggin' PINK??? Not blood red? Fudge! I was already going to let her be my first partial reroot (the bangs do not look good judging from other photos). But she'll have to be my first repaint too? Pink lips? What the hell?

  2. Keep an eye out for Simi on the boards & on the dollpage. I saw one go for 90+shipping the other day so if you can be patient (and take her nude) you can probably get a more palatable deal on her!

    And hey don't let a little repainting put you off! It's great once you get started! :D

  3. I'll be coming to you for repainting advice CK! There are so many dolls that need just a little tweaking. I'm sure being able to repaint really frees you. And reroot! I'll keep an eye out for some Simi deals.

  4. No problem! I'm always willing to lend my advice & so will others (like Nat). It does really allow you to put your own stamp on a figure & release some personalities that you might not realize are hidden behind the factory paint!

    Hey, quick question (how come I'm not on your links?) You not like me or somethin? :P

    I think I've discovered what 2011 is going to be the year of for me! (I'll be updating on the 1st to reveal what!)

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
