My Goodies!

It was a very successful mail weekend for me. Here are some pics, but first: Okay so year of luxury is coming to a close. The new year will begin October 31st. I wanted it to be called like Year of Thrift or similar, but it's better to have positive associations, so it might be the Year of Making Money or something. Anyway it's all about saving for a house. But what of my doll collecting?

Well, next year will focus on photography, interior decor, doll customization and the like. I WILL resist new dolls. I was talking to my boss about this. She is a cake maker, you know the Ace of Cakes type that makes your cake look like a purse or whatever. To make sure she doesn't have a massive cake accessories binge, she buys herself a gift card. And that is her budget for the month or whatever. I think this is a great idea. So I'll put some money on a gift card and it might be 4 Barbies or one Fashion Royalty but when it's gone, it's gone.

Until then, let us enjoy the binge:

Oooh la la. Voici, Mademoiselle Marie est la! Comes with three outfits plus a nice camel trench coat, bag, scarf, 2 berets, boots, scarf, phone thing with Morse code thingy. 

 Her face mold is nice. Her eyes look friggin' crazy. I mean, can a gal have some eyelashes? Nice lips though. Also, her chest is sort of rubbery. It's weird. I'm pretty sure I'm scrapping her body for parts. I might make her someone's mother later or something.
 June looks rather fetching in her sweater:

 "I have been expecting you."  Seriously, as soon as I laid out Carmen's cards, ending with the King of Swords, here comes the mail carrier with this sworded fellow. His shirt and pants are one piece. I think I'll be cutting that up in the future...
 Anyway they bonded really well. I removed his little red cross scar, his soul patch (and a bit of his lip. oops). Thinking about removing the beard but that might make his obnoxious goatee look weird, which I will be cutting off.
Got my coffee table and leather armchair too. I love the Building Idea folks. They're on vacation, but they'll be back... The leather chair is sturdy heavy and really well made. The coffee table has a beautiful glaze and it's the perfect size. Felix is feeling under the weather. Maybe having some problems adjusting to the new body?
Alisha below has a new body. It's a Swappin' Styles body unfortunately, but you can't really tell where all the seams are thankfully. Hanna is telling her about her friend Remi who is moving to Grandville soon. Or maybe complaining that her bangs are STILL not right. Don't worry Hanna. Me and my buddy Elmer's are on the case.
That's all I have to report. I'm still working on Ms. Fear's reroot, then I have two more right behind it. Advice, don't give your dolls baldies until you're ready to reroot. I have Mrs. Fear and Poppy Parker, and dreadlocks to make (oh, got my wool roving too). It's never ending. But hey, it's Dolly University right? Gotta do my school work!

smooches,

  2. I was really prejudiced against Ms. Fear at first but I've grown to love her. You can't beat Tuesday Morning's price on these guys. All the props make it worth it.

  3. You got him! Love that Johnny Depp guys, lol. Your couch and chair are awesome too. I still have my Trichelle on the old Fashionistas body with the whack knees but I will be getting a swappin' style soon for another girl. So, it's good to know the seam isn't all that bad. :)

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
