You Knew I Wasn't Going Anywhere

Okay well I guess my third hiatus is a failure as well. Let's just say I'll post when I can, when I have something to report. The Hubs is taking both the girls out tomorrow so I can finally start constructing my space ship. What space ship, you say?

Well, the Hubs had this awesome wooden 60's light fixture and why he let me have this beautiful thing, I do not know, but I thought it would make a great space ship.  Then I found this outfit on Ebay and it's so weird, I had to have it for my alien lady (or time traveler, not sure yet).


 Anywho, we went to Big Lots today and I hoped for a great Barbie and World Peacekeepers selection or even a good pillar candle holder to make into a table. But it was slim pickin's for folks like us. I did however get manage to get some treasures.

 I don't collect Monster High, but I do enjoy looking at your pictures of them and as a whole I really like them. (Just can't get addicted to a doll that can't share clothes with the others). Anyway these speakers where too cute and just $6.  Oh and those are LED tea lights if you can't see them.

The Hubs bought Spiderman 3 and it came with these tiny comic books:
 They're full of tiny writing and everything! I know Ian the guy who runs the record store is going to totally dork out over these.

And I spent only about $20 for all of it including the movie. Go Year of Prosperity!

  1. Wow! LED tealights. I need those. The comic books are wonderful, too. No fair you coming back and convincing us to spend money.

  2. You can never stay away too long :O)

    I saw those tealights and couldn't think of what to do with them. I may have to pick up Spiderman 3 just for the mini comics :O)

  3. I once used mine to light a plastic jack-o-lantern. I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to use them for. I might build a light fixture for them or light one and sit it behind a couch for additional lighting. I also have a ceramic fireplace (http://www.uncommongoods.com/product/porcelain-campfire?source=family) that I painted. Maybe I'll use them around my new spaceship...Like I need a reason to buy some crap to take up space in my house!

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
