My First Momoko!

I didn't expect her until Thursday, but my Military Girl Momoko arrived!  She's adorable. But aren't they all? 


I like the stand but it's a bit cumbersome. Plus she doesn't even need it.

 I love that she comes with a tank top and panties. The suit will be going elsewhere. One day I'm going to have a customized Barbie airplane hanging from the ceiling of my fantasy doll room. So now the pilot has a nice outfit.

By the way, please notice that I've added white contact paper to the kitchen walls. That jacked up butcher block will be dealt with soon.
 It's yellow and blurry but I love this picture. Momokos have a great body.
 Flexy ankles too.
 Here she is with BFF Sooki, who pulling a Winehouse here. I was not prepared for the height difference, but it gives a little variety.
My only complaint is that her face is pretty boring. They all look alike. Another complaint is the mouth. Her mouth looks really strange. Cartoonish. Well, too cartoonish. I might have to hang out on Flickr and see what others might have done to improve on that.

And she looks really innocent. So I think I might make her a coke dealer or something.

I dunno, I like Momoko but I'll find a much better deal before buying again.

Okay, that is IT. I bought too many girls in quick succession and I haven't gotten time to process them all into the narrative. I need some backstories here!

smooches,

  1. Oh you lucky duck! She is gorgeous! I so want Momoko B-girl. I love the dolls with the wild curly, get up and go hair.

    I like your idea for her, it just goes to show you never know what's behind an innocent face. LOL

  2. I like the big curls too but it always ends up getting kind of ratty on me. I'd love some styling tips! I had Byron Lars Sugar Barbie and I just wanted to take away the frizz with just a little boiling water. It totally gave her a texturizer...I had to rebody her a million times to love her again. You can see her in my Animals post at the beginning of February.

  3. Holy crap! Miss a few days & you miss a lot at your house, lol! You've doubled your doll collection! Military girl is awesome! I love her hair, and your idea about making her a coke dealer cracked me up. I really think she could pull that off! Congrats on all your kickass recent pick ups!

  4. I have 3 Momokos and don't want to go past that number. She's so sweet looking and I find that they all tend to look the same to me ( I said to me..LOL). I can't wait to see the drug dealer story develop. She's so sweet looking she's the least likely suspect :O)

  5. Alright I lied..LOL. I just bought Snow White Momoko oh well..she looked different (that's my story and I'm sticking to it ;O)

  6. Congrats on your momoko!

    Momokos tend imo to have nice facial sculpts. I think that you should write her to have a devious character beneath that "so sweet and cool that butter wouldn't melt in her mouth" look.

    One word of warning (my personal experience with 2 momokos so far) is that the ankle joints & wrist joints can be weak & break easily so just be careful.

  7. Thanks Smidgey. If I can't get lighting perfect, I'm at least trying to compose a shot a bit better!

    Hahah Dolls4Moi, we are junkies!

    @ Erica: I am kind of a brute, so I'll be careful!

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
