Big Weekend!

Happy 4th, you guys. I took an extra day off so I had four sweet days off, one of which was child-free thanks to good old grandma!

WARNING, PLASTIC NUDITY!

Friday brought me a massive haul. A new body, a new head (who fits none of my bodies, sigh). Also, I have an awesome doll buddy. We do doll trades. I send her old bods and she sends me very cool fun accessories. Look what I got:

Sweet haul. Ms. Fear's Mom is digging the Chinese pajamas. Well, she's not going to let YOU know that.

I can't wait to play with the other things. I can't wait to paint that bar and use it in one of my doll homes. I'm already using the stools.

Here's what else I was up to:

Felix got a new body!

Dani is very happy. She finally gets to bump plastics with her fiance.
I installed the kitchen shelving which are Barbie laundry room shelves turned sideways. Man, I need to brush that girl's hair.

I added some art to the walls of the studio. I'm working on the back walls for these rooms. This one will have a giant warehouse-type window. The Hubs did that little illustration in high school.


The reroot is going pretty well, if not incredibly slow. You think 20 plugs will get your somewhere but it sure doesn't feel like it.



It turns out Hana's bangs are not so mangled after all. She just needed loads of boiling water, a wee trim and a few days looking like she's sweatin' to the oldies! She'll be back to stealing your boyfriends in no time!



Best part: began to gather materials for my fairy tale. I had them in a pile, but putting them up like this is way more inspiring. Uh, no there won't be cocktail umbrellas in the story. Interesting story. See that mirror on the wall behind the cottage to be? I got it at a yard sale. It's like a black mirror, a wanna be antique. I hope I can use it in the story. Very spooky.



















And on a final note, at my sister's 40th birthday celebration dinner, I found Dani's bridal shower 'gag' gift. Oh my god, no pun intended! haha







smooches,

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
