My First Reroot

Okay technically speaking I never actually announced that this was an assignment. So I'm sorry if any of you were following along. I guess I figured since I totally avoided my vehicle assignment, I might as well do something else productive.

So I'll put the details on my site http://www.vitaplastica.com/hair.html

I think by now you're familiar with June, my transsexual. She finally got her reroot completed. I even thatched a new part in her hair. Though, really, I should have painted her head first.


Okay not the most awesome reroot I've ever seen but for a my first time, I'm pretty happy.

BUT, despite myself, ever since I cut those brunette hanks off, June has been giving me a total straight guy vibe. The Hubs says it's the Harley body. Sorry June, you're not allowed to throw off my story line again.

So I pierced her ears. Now I feel better.



Dang, this gal needs some clothes! Even Ms. Fear's old top is insufficient. But Dusty's pants work out okay.


All in all I'm pretty happy with June. Now for makeup! I need to research drag queen makeup. They shading and contouring they do is insane.

  1. Great job on the reroot! You're so creative in your story telling, I love it. The pose in the second photo makes me think of The Silence of the Lambs..."It puts the lotion in the basket..." lol. But I totally get the transsexual vibe from June.

    Can't wait to see more.

  2. Scary! Well my June is going to be a sweetheart. But she will READ you if she has to!

  3. I like June :O) If you have stretchy clothes from Barbie they should fit. I've put some stretchy dresses on the bigger ladies like Jakks Pacific's Rosi O'Donnell doll. It's worth a shot

  5. That works for some action figure girls but June has some massive shoulders and this wide chest. Maybe she'll inspire me to finally make some doll clothes! I'm going to check my outerwear and see what can be left open...

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
