You Might Have a Doll Problem If... are desperate to buy something with consistent 1 star ratings just because it looks fairly realistic.

Case in point Moxie Girlz Magic Snow Cabin. I know the icicles fall off and the roof falls off and the magic of the magic snow is its ability to stick to everything. But I want it anyway! Look at how cute and realistic it will be if you paint it. Everyone complaining are moms who are not down with the art of customization, so what do they know anyway?

I had this vague idea that my doll town was in the mountains in France somewhere. I need a chalet, do I not? I think so.

But can we discuss this house? I'm in love! Look at it! Okay I hear you but look at exterior! Now this is being billed as Moxie Girlz house. But I've seen it called a Bratz House too with slightly different accessories. Leftovers from the Mattel lawsuit? Now if this is big enough for Moxies it will be fine for Barbie and FRs but if it's Bratz, that's an issue.

Anyone have this house? If not I'll report on it soon because I'm not sure I can fight this urge...


  1. I love them both. I don't have either, so I can't comment on quality or size. Good luck. We both know you won't be happy until you get them.

  3. Hi Dani, I have the Moxie Girlz house and the scale is a little small for Barbie but you've got skills and it can be made to work. The kitchen stove & sink is kind of shallow but again, it can be made to work in a diorama. Especially if you want to use it like a small apartment scene. I really like the snow cabin...don't have that one so I can't offer advice on it. Here are a couple of links to my flickr photos where I used the Moxie house.

    Found this video you can view it a little better. Strange video but it gives you an idea. I think the only furniture it came with was a bed (too small for Barbie) but it did come with bathroom and some kitchen accessories.

  4. Oooh thanks Tracy. That is pretty small. But maybe I can use some parts. I guess it's the ski lodge for me! What body is that on Aja? I'm trying to rebody mine but everything is too light or too dark.

  5. I think you could make it work...maybe even a dinner scene. :) Aja is on an Artsy Fashionistas body, perfect match. Oh, and check out this item # 290587716196 on eBay. This seller repaints Gloria Furniture and uses the Moxie doll house as the background. She repainted the house chandeliers and even though it's small, it looks really cool.

  6. Oooh it does look nice. I was thinking of it a future hotel and this being the entrance. I could just buy the doors on ebay. They're the best part IMO. Thanks for the info on Aja. Off to Target I go!

The Arrival of Kala

My first first-hand BJD has arrived!  She's a Dollmore Keeley Sum purchased through Denver Doll Emporium. She arrived with a broken foot joint so DDE is getting Dollmore to send me another. It was fairly distressing to open the package to THAT surprise, but she's so beautiful, she immediately captured my heart.

I recently made arrangements to sell Sunnie and I can see it is totally for the best. THIS is what a new bjd owner should feel. Something like maternal pride, an obsessive need to care for her.

Her working name is Kala (not Eden anymore). We'll talk about her back story in another post but for now, all you need to know is she's an early Neolithic woman. Here she is wearing a wig by D. Resin on Flickr. She's amazing.

This is Kala's stuff I've been collecting.

Here is a size comparison of the Dollmore Model F body and the older Dream of Teen by Dream of Doll body.

You know me, peeps, I have a need to make doll environments as strongly as my need to h…

So Where Were We?

Hello my friends!

Man I have been slacking. I got so into the Roku situation that I have completely neglected the dolls. And since my car died and I now have a car note, my insane doll shopping spree is at a close. Except I found the 1960s Reading Deluxe Dream Kitchen (minus table and chairs) at a thrift store for $35. Then there was this cute pitcher there (on the dishwasher) and a Gibson guitar, so...(forgive the cellphone pic).

Anyway I hope to getting back to a craft/diorama focus in my doll work.

Can I be honest? I am terrified of my camera. I've avoided it since my last post. Setting up lights takes forever and changing them for every scene and the cords and the scary wiring in this house. Then taking 100 pics and those being all wrong and doing it again after I already took down all the damn lights. Ugh.

So whatever. When I do a glamour shot I'll fiddle with lighting and post production. But for photostories, eff it.

The following shots are done with a flash and auto-f…

BJD: Vinyl to Resin

So I think people really wants to know why I am taking this plunge, or maybe you don't give a crap but I'm going to tell you anyway.

Maturity: Not saying that 1/6th folks aren't mature!!! But there is something very mature about the BJD hobby that is populated with so many young people. Depending on the company or customizations, you may have to wait up to forty effin' weeks. That is how long it takes to make a human. It takes patience. And you're going to take time to make the right choice. I'm resigning myself to not seeing my first doll until my bday in November. The dolls and accessories are not always cheap. You have to budget yourself, save up and earn that dang doll.You need a gentle touch when you're handling these dolls. You can't afford to damage them. They make special travel cases for them! Dropping them could mean seriously damaging a nose. They yellow in time and if you keep them in the sun. You have to find a place to keep them safe.(Crap…
