You Might Have a Doll Problem If...

...you 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!

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
