Photostories!

Happy New Year everyone!

I've been a bit obsessed with Comic Life since I received it for Christmas. I never realized that not reading comic books can really limit you when you start to create one. Or maybe it gives you total freedom...

But it's definitely different than just writing captions, which is what I was doing for a while. You really have to be succinct. Forget all the long speeches. I mean, I know it's possible. The Hubs, a comic FANATIC told me I could just use the same image 5 times and have this long speech. But I know I don't like reading all that, so I'm going to try to avoid that. Unless it's needed for comic value.

So anyway, check out the new Vita Plastica site at weebly. Weebly is a bit aggravating to use but hey, it's free. Maybe one of these days I'll buy a domain but until then, I'll deal with the limitations.

Anyway I've got loads of character introductions and a couple of photostories. Hope it gives you a good laugh! Much more to come.

In other news, the New Year has inspired me to take some inventory. I unpacked all my unused dolls and took a look at what I could do to help these guys have a life again.



A couple of gals got new bodies, found a stand-in for my dominatrix until I go back to work and therefore can afford Simi. And a dude lost his hands to my new Peacekeeper dude. New life!

You know I see that some of you store your dolls on stands, dressed in their finery just waiting to join your stories. Hmm, so shoving them in an old milk crate isn't the best way to store them? News to me.

So I looked them over and divided them into three categories: Gangsters (members of my new crime syndicate-it's about time all my weapons get used), Hipsters (to include club kids, band members and goth/punk teens), and the Ladies who Lunch (and the husbands who get dragged along). Oh and gypsies. Now I'm dressing them and setting them up.

There are some misfits. My college girl (daughter of a lady who lunches), and my new guy, the African American Barbie Basics. I dunno what to do with this guy. He's so...wooden. haha. Really he's totally stiff. He might just need a new bod. He's not hip or a criminal, so we'll see...

Oh and I did my first repaint! Really it's comical. I bought a High School Musical Gabrielle a while back. I don't know why. She's awful. But my mob boss needed a kid, and I wanted her to be like those annoying kids with reality shows. but she was so happy. So I cut out her smile, removed her lip paint, then painted her pink lips red...with nail polish. I gave her some garish makeup with liquid liner and dressed her like a mini Paris Hilton. I still hate her. But my husband said she looks like Snooki, so I'm keeping her. Hee!

So pics of her and my new doll groups in the next post.

Hope you guys had a great new year!

smooches,

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
