Riot in Grandville! An Ode to Cat.

Oooh my friends I did some good work this weekend! The boutique is almost ready to go, the wall art is up in the cafe and okay the third wall is a warped monstrosity but I still feel very accomplished. I repainted Mama Fear's eyes, Ms. Fear's and Miho's as well.  It's easy when you are using one color and not highlight it at all. But some of the Fear ladies need cold dead eyes with little feeling. And some...have just seen too much.

I had a baby shower to attend and last minute Christmas shopping so my time was fairly limited. Plus I spent a bazillion years setting up the scene below.

I got home to a wonderful surprise on Friday. I package for ME! Did I order something I forgot about? Don't you love when that happens? But no, it was a present from my friend and yours, Cat from A Doll Affinity. 

Then the girls (the plastic ones) got word of the new merchandise and things got a little violent:

Dani and her Step Auntie Zarrin (who is two years younger) do battle over the hot pink top with ruffled collar.

Nadia fights Hanna over the black leather with silver stripe cropped pants. Be careful Nadia, that girl might whip out a razorblade hidden in her bangs.

While everyone is distracted, Sookie goes "Yoink!"   [The wristlet has been claimed for Remi's girl, Bailey (formerly Alisha) who is a keyboard player] I'm sorry Smidge, I just read that you have a Bailey but I had no choice. Film at 11.

 Nadia defeated Hanna in the Battle of the Striped Pantalones
Zinna was the clear victor in the Clash of the Fuschia Blouse. But since she only wears party dresses this was just for sport.
 She also scored the super glam-rock drag queen shoes. I think I'll have to pass these around to each girls. They are friggin' fabulous.
Sooki models her score.  What is it with punker chicks loving the UK? You know we invent punk stateside, right ladies?

These shades are perfect for Hanna. She looks like a 70's Puerto Rican dude scoring some smack.
Thank you so much Cat!  You are awesome. You know our taste very well!

Have a great holiday you guys! I can't wait to see what you all got. I myself have already peeked. Okay I bought it myself and told the Hubs he can have credit for it.



  1. LORD JESUS, ladies they just clothes! I don't think I should of said that!

  2. I have tears! I am laughing so hard...
    "These shades are perfect for Hanna. She looks like a 70's Puerto Rican dude scoring some smack."

    I don't know if you can ever allow her bangs to be fixed, they are becoming their very own entity. Haha! :)

    SO happy the girls enjoyed (fighting) for the presents!

  3. Ebony, me getting new clothes in is so rare, they know it's not going to happen again for a minute!

    I'm glad you liked it Cat. I was inspired by your Black Friday photo set. Now that was hilarious!

  4. Is that what they call a CAT fight? ROFL! Those girls were serious. Did Nadia pull out some of Hannah's hair? Oh My! Too funny.

  5. Hey Nadia did what had to be done in the name of fashion! I've been having so much fun actually playing with dolls. Not their rooms or painting something or buying but really playing!

  6. Hello from Spain: as much diorama of Cat as yours of a great day of shopping and fights to obtain what we like to buy. Your diorama is very realistic. It enchants the photos and dolls to me that you have. The shining shoes are more fashion of the moment. Are they of Barbie? It had not seen it. We follow in contact of blog blog

  7. This was hilarious. I have to pull out the shots of Nadja & Lilith fighting in the park over a "borrowed" outfit.

    I have way too many clothes for any of my ladies to fight over but it just happens ;O)

  8. TOO funny!! Were any of the guys yelling "Girl fight!" you know how they love to see that.

    Cat is so sweet! All of your girls look fly in their newly gifted fits. I especially love Sooki's outfit. Something about the UK, just makes you look cool.

    Great gifts. :)

  9. Lol!! Your girls are funny. They know how to bring it. Lol! Poor Dani, did she suffer from a concussion from getting hit in the head with that shoe? Hilarious!!

  10. This is a really funny skit, love the creativity. I really want that hot pink top with ruffled collar.

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 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!
