I Heart Mistress Ava

So I set up a club scene. Sometimes I have to set up a scene for me to solidify what is happening in my doll lives, even if I don't make it into a photostory.

This scene was supposed to set up how Sooki met Johnny Tan, who is the hottest new resident of Grandville. Skater boy, goes to the local art school. His face is painfully realistic.

 Never thought I'd be a fan of molded hair, but he's got a cool style. PS: I've been meaning to talk to you about Sookie's eyelashes. I can barely get a shot of her, they're so thick and low hanging. I thought I already tried it with her, but I'm going to use boiling water to try to lift them a bit. If not, they're getting yanked.

But, you know you put the kids in a room together and all kinds of stuff starts happening. More on that in a minute.

Yesterday the set of handcuffs I ordered for Mistress Ava arrived, so I couldn't resist a picture of her with them. Bear in mind, this is something like Aragorn's dream sequence because Mistress Ava does not have handcuffs in her purse for Pete's sake. She keeps them in the car of course.

Anyway her beauty is distracting and I just took pic after pic of her. Then set up my DJ lights and did s'more!






I just love her face! She doesn't have a bad angle! But when her time comes, she's getting a new eye color. Brown? And maybe actual red lips. But otherwise she's perfection.

So then a little drama happened. You remember Mistress Ava and Sugar's flirtation?  Hmm, Sugar looks a little jealous here...

Also, as I look over these shots, she looks incredibly bored. This isn't her scene, even if I try to force it. We tried short edgy hair, but it was just a rest stop on her way to getting (dread) locks, so I'll be working on her soon.

This has run a bit long and I remembered that I didn't take a good picture of the other drama going on, so I'll continue that in a few days.

Remember I was supposed to work on Ms. Fear? In my defense, new hair and face paint has not yet arrived, but I did get her a coffee table. This is the one Smidgehouse had and painted to resemble wood. I'm soooo tempted to just paint it black and be done with it. After all, Ms. Fear's couch is black. But attempting simulated wood grain is on my list of assignments (I think). I'm trying not to look at the Smidgehouse blog because I will cry, knowing it's not likely to look like that! Well, gotta try! Can't get better without practice. *she says through her tears*

smooches!

  1. Wow, I love his head mold. I saw him at stinkerstuff.com for the first time. Great character. I think he'd make a hot item with Sooki. :)

  2. Yes! You can do it. It might not be 100% perfect the first time, but you CAN do it and it'll get better and better as you practice. :D

    Here. Watch this if you ever need a pep talk. XD

  3. I love me some Johnny Tan! I'm still working on finding him a body. He's so tan and his head is only being held on by that sticky gummy stuff that people use to hold up posters.

    Thanks Nat. I feel happy of myself!

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
