I'm a Jerk

So the Year of Luxury keeps on churning. I'm not working because the US won't give a mom a proper maternity leave. So we have little income now. That hasn't stopped me spending our savings and just hoping rent money would work itself out. That's what you have to do in the Year of Luxury.

So anyway, our tax return came through way early. I went to Walmart, got some little do-dads like mini frames and fabric glue. But still, with money in the bank, I just itched for a new doll. I decided it was time for my first Momoko, but didn't mention it to my husband. Here he is spending money on getting new tires and bills and stuff. I'm so irresponsible.

I go to our online bank and see there is some money that has been spent on Paypal. Grr, has he purchased more damn comic books? How dare he when I am basically out of work! The nerve! So I go into our ebay account to investigate.

And you know what you guys? He secretly bought me a Poppy Parker! And for a bargain! I feel so veklempt. I'm a jerk. I ruined this awesome surprise! He loves giving surprises! (I hate them) Now I know what I should not and I feel really bad.

Sort of torn about acting surprised or not...Makes me think about the openness of our relationship. How can you surprise a spouse when you share everything?

Good thing he doesn't read the blog much!

Anyway you guys, Coney Island Poppy! She's nude, but that little outfit isn't much anyway. I know I wanted to repaint a Poppy to look like my daughter, but um, maybe another doll, another time...

  1. You're not a jerk..I've been known to insert foot in mouth from time to time. I apologize to my hunny even for things I thought and I tell him and we laugh. I say you mention it casually and have a laugh over it :O)(Pseudo convo below)

  2. That is so awesome! It's great when your mate supports even our smallest pleasures. And...you're not a jerk. Just get to practicing your surprised look in the mirror while waiting for your new girl. LOL

  3. Thanks you guys. I ended up confessing over dinner last night. My lead-in had him convinced I was about to confess to an affair. hahah! He is really supportive. Just when I think he is seeing too much of the dolly-crackhead in me, I find he really enjoys it. He collects toys too (and magazines and records and comics and baseball cards) so he gets it.

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
