Ken's Last Chance at Life as a Man

So when I give my doll a personality and a mate, I always try it on for size. Sometimes dolls just don't have chemistry. So before making the important step of repainting, maybe rerooting, possibly resculpting, I want to be sure I've given him a fair choice. Hey maybe he's just a girly looking dude who loves chicks. So I'm letting him spend some time with Carmen.

Every picture I take in my house without a flash is yellow. Not just in the monstrous cedar room. What's up with that? White balance?



Hmm, Carmen almost seems sympathetic. Her eyes are saying, "I support his choice, but I'll always love him..."


 And he looks like "We'll always have shopping."


Here's a good shot of the caravan so far. And the pet camel? Look I don't have a horse yet, okay?
So I guess that's the clincher, Ken will soon be June. (For this awesome transgendered homeless kid on 20/20). Stay tuned for progress.

  1. I dunno...I still really like him as a guy. :) I love the idea you had of piercings, maybe some tattoos and with a little "dirt" sculpting mud (or something close) I think he could be really hot! I'm thinking something like Robert Smith from The Cure. ;)

    I'll stay tuned to see what happens.

  2. Oh man, you are so right, he is just sooo girly! Well, you gave it a shot, but he is who he is. :) I'm really excited to see his transformation! (So funny-- it wasn't all that long ago you talked about being nervous to swap heads! Look at you now!)

  3. I swear I've been posting comments and replies everywhere and nothing is showing up!

    @Tracy: I'm actually considering getting another one and making him my goth boy. But either way, lots more goths in the future!

    @Smidge: Thanks honey, I needed to hear that. I follow some doll blogs (including yours) and I see how much people progress in the span of a year or two. Though I don't have any doll related career aspirations (yet), I do still want to get better at this stuff!

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
