Theft Can't Get Us Down!

Well, here's an update. About 60% of the music that was lost were downloaded or ripped from CD's that we do still have (so instead of lugging around a bunch of CDs just to play selected tracks), and thankfully those are still on our computers. So just a few hundred CDs to replace as well as the equipment.

And anyway, he had been bidding on some stuff on ebay that he won after the theft, so we did have to luxuriate a bit more. Then I think he felt bad that I never got my Barbie airplane, so he scored one really cheap today. Hurray!

I'm so not in the mindset for Dolly U right now, but if I was paying for it, I would still have to do it, so I'm not going to let this stop me.

I've been reading the rerooting book by Donna Anne and I'm excited to get started on that but I can't afford the tools and hair yet, so, we'll see.

Obviously the airplane will get a revamp but I hesitate to make it an assignment until I've done some research on mod 60's airline culture.

Until then, I leave you with this:

  1. Do you have her How to Style doll Hair book? How do you like it?

  2. I do have that one. I like it, but I haven't tried any of the tricks yet. I'd say it's worth it for a beginner but the actual styles are limited: layered, razor cut, curls, dreads. I still don't know how to cut proper bangs...Still, I think it was worth the price.

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
