Do You Like Me? I Like You

Hi everyone.

I removed the Vita Plastica facebook page and created a new page that isn't a "friend" page, if you know what I mean.

So if you've friended me on Facebook, please go "like" the new "Vita Plastica" page. I promise I will fill it with pictures and stuff.

Maybe I'll post things that are too short for a blog post, like angry rants on why Mattel doesn't do this or that.

So here I am

Please come show me some love!



  1. Congrats on the page-making.Next time I log in to fb I'll do that (I do hate FB though!)

    One question though-- have you changed the coding or style or font on your blog? I used to be able to read yours with no problem--but now it's very faint and pretty hard on my eyes. (let me know if you want a screen-grab)

  2. Thanks Erica, I left you a message on you FB page too. I changed it a while back but I haven't since. I'll see if I can blacken it up. Check back and let me know how it looks.

  3. Hehe. I have a rule I don't log into FB more than once every week and a half. I tweet more than anything else.

    Blog looks about the same to me. I'm attaching a link to a screen grab.

    And congrats on getting your niece interested in 1:6! It's so much better to play with them as adults! :D

  4. Hmm, that is weird. I haven't made any changes other than adding the facebook thing on the side... I wanted to change it up anyway, so maybe I'll try a new font...

  5. Yea, I know blogger can be funny sometimes when you add widgets and code stuff, so maybe that's what it was caused by.

    It's obviously not a big deal for most folks reading your blog (btw I'm using Firefox as a browser) but it does make it hard for me to read (and want to spend any time on the blog) :S

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…
