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!)

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…
