Need Advice!

Hi guys, I need some advice.

I was redressing my Momoko and I broke her wrist! It's pretty much irreparable. I was going to just crazy glue it but I lost the little post that makes the wrist move.  I was just going to give her a story line. This is terrible.

So can I get a Momoko arm anywhere?  I tried an Obitsu arm I have hanging around and that didn't work. I could rebody her but no one on earth is as pale as she is, even my palest doll!

The Hubs had a great idea that i might try. Give her a robotic arm. He even dismantled some action figure to help me out. This is a cool idea. Hardly realistic but I think the lines of realism in Grandville will start blurring.

Anyway, got any other solutions? Replacement Momoko bodies? Dang, those girls are expensive and look so much like children that it's really hard to give them boyfriends. I don't want another one. But I live Morgan, my drug dealer.

Please help! Someone please lend a hand! (okay couldn't resist that.)


smooches,
dani

  1. Oh no!!! :( I have never owned a Momoko and have zero advice. I hope someone can help you as these gals are very expensive. Is she really paler than the white(literally) skinned Obitsu? I have one of those and she is SUPER pale! Or did the Obitsu arm just not fit?

  2. Are you sure you couldn't just rebody her on an Obitsu body? Junky spot has pretty decent prices on various Obitsu bodies and they are in the US, so you won't have to worry about international shipping times.

  3. The Obitsu arm didn't fit and the body I have is even more juvenile than she already is. Though it is the right shade. Maybe I'll just try to find the right Obitsu body out there.

    But SOMEONE is getting a robot arm. I just can't resist!

  4. Try this link: http://junkyspot.com/obindex.html
    These are all 27cm in height but there are some that aren't as juvenile in looks as the one you might have. Here is one of my gal's on an Obitsu body I bought from junkyspot: http://www.flickr.com/photos/adollaffinity/6125997057/in/set-72157627986981231/

    She is meant to have a cute thing going on. lol

    And as for roboarm on a dolly....YOU SHOULD TOTALLY GO FOR IT! :D

  5. Holy chicihi's! She's adorable. Okay I'm going to check them out. The ones I have must be pre-teens or something.

  6. Yeah, miss Pandora's top goods are the large bust size. lol They have small bust and they also have 25cm and lower, which might be what you have.

  7. Okay I just bought a medium bust. Thanks Cat! Oh my new nerdy Sulu is going to be really grateful.

    They have CLEAR bodies? Oh man, Grandville is going supernatural!

  8. Yay! I feel like I was actually helpful! lol :) I also have the medium bust, that one is going to a re-root for my sister. Speaking of re-roots where did you purchase your wool roving? I need to buy some for Adrian's dreadlocks. :) Because now I can't see him any other way after the picture you sent. lol

    And I SO thought of you when I saw the clear bodies. They really cool. I can see the hot androids of Grandville now. Or maybe Nymeria could have an android-esk assistant?

  9. An army of Fem bots! hahaha. You totally saved the day. Although now it means the citizens of Grandville are still on drugs. Thanks a lot Cat. hahah!

    I got the wool roving from etsy. The one I sent you with Mme. Marie is from http://www.etsy.com/shop/HarborFibers

    The other one that was kind of a hot mess was from here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/slimchicken

    Just adding that in case you want to make the comparison to see why the second one was total crap...

  10. Hi from Spain, how frustrating it the hand of the doll. I can think to put another body. Sorry. Keep in touch

  11. I never own a Momoko because unlike Fashion Royalty,Dynamite girls and Fashionistas I think it will be very hard to find a body for them when something goes wrong! Hope you find something soon!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh, no!!! That does not inspire confidence in pose-able wrists! But at least your husband was really sweet!

    Looks like you're into the robotic arm now - more power to ya! I think dolls are in alternate universes, anyway. ;-)

    BTW, I'm disappointed in the large bust, because it's too perky - but those bodies have intrigued me for a while.

  13. Another wedding question (if I turn out to like doll weddings even nearly as much as real ones, I'm in trouble). Are you going to get the bride Bella from Twilight? She doesn't seem too high priced. Nice dress for a non-typical bride.

    1. I am thinking about it, definitely. When I saw it on the blogs yesterday I couldn't dial home fast enough to tell the Hubs about it. I can always trade the doll...It's always good to have options right?

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
