Zee Plane Boss, Zee Plane!

Okay could not resist that dorky joke title. At long last my airplane arrived!!! It took like 10 days but it's finally here and I can get started on my Doll Vehicle Customization assignment.

Some sort of monster hybrid of two boxes arrived and I heard a terrible rattle as I snatched it from the mail carrier's clutches.


I began to open it and was not pleased at my findings. What you are seeing below are tiny accessories (including tiny ice cubes) that would have fallen out of the box if not for the box tape. I wonder what did manage to fall out...


All the accessories were just dumped into the box! Horrors! Would it kill you to use a Ziploc?

Hmm, but what is this? My first Silkie!!

Have I mentioned I hate Silkies?  Still I always wanted to handle one, to feel the silky skin and as usual, get her naked and see what's she's got going on.

She must have been a cheapie. No one would treat a fancy Silkstone Barbie so disrespectfully. Even me. What is with their mutant protruding plastic line of "eyelashes"?  Anyway, I have new doll trading buddy so this gal will be shipped off before she has a chance to poison my flock with her outdated ideas. (Really some Silkies are very pretty so don't get too offended)

Anyway, totally excited that she came with a wedding dress!!! Okay so it won't fit Dynamite Girl Dani, but it's good that she has options. Oh did I tell you my mother said she'd make Dani's wedding dress? That's TWO things my mother has/will do on my assignment list. More on that later.

I am still really happy with the airplane. Came with load of original accessories and some cool freebies like wheeled luggage, a luggage cart and our little redhead friend above.  Here are some shots:



 Imagine this all white with silver doors.
 This is my pilot, checking out her new digs.
 She photographs much better than she looks.

I'm excited to get to work! So the plan is to cover make this as white as possible, inside and out with silver accents and some tangerine colors in there. 

Did I tell you the name of the airline? It's Pan Em Airlines. If you read the Hunger Games, I hope you got a chuckle, if you didn't, get on it buddy! I KNOW they'll come out with dolls for the characters. They just have to. So be prepared. You will read all three in a weekend. Do it.

  4. Thank you, Dollz4Moi! I was looking all over for a bride silkie online and couldn't find one! The dress isn't too bad once you get past the glitter.

    Oh Tracy, I actually found the one of the other MZs on the Integrity site for $35! I was about to shell out some dough for her on ebay: http://www.integritytoys.com/shop20/home.php?cat=13

    So excited that Lenny has been cast as Cinna!

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
