Mother Talzin

I love movies and books that create super detailed fictional worlds, but I've never been into Star Wars. It's such a GUY thing. Like the Lord of the Rings books. Snore. Princess Leia wasn't all that interesting to me and Padme is fine but neither one really kick butt. I've seen all six films at least 2-3 times and fall asleep every time. 

I have to admit the Clone Wars animated movie/tv show is better. You get so into the beautiful art and meeting an Anakin that is flawed and round that you could really see him turning into Darth Vader. And finally, awesome females.

But I still wasn't interested until Asajj Ventress. She's a Sith-ette and a formidable opponent.



Humor me, I'm getting to my point.

She's from a female dominant planet of witches (SOLD!) who keep men on the other side of the planet as chattle. (Darth Maul was of this race of men.) I told the Hubs I needed an Monster High doll to make her into Ventress and he had secretly already gotten me one for our anniversary! Ventress is more of a gray color but I thought she would work.

 But you know, Ventress is bald. I thought of compensating by doing her up in her ninja outfit:



And she has many many variations in costume and design.

But then I met the high priestess of the Night Sisters



And she talks like a gypsy.

I still want to make a Ventress, but I really want to make this one. Hmm, now how I'll make the costume, I do not know!

Oh and scored some stuff at the dollar store:

I plan on building a school. When? I dunno, maybe 2013? And the candle holder will be a fountain or maybe will hold up a statue. Either way, it's for Grandville park.

Then that poster will be the background for the lighthouse. Maybe that will inspire me to make a beach...

I passed up some fake dog puke but I might go back for it. Hey, with burn-outs like my dolls, there's bound to be an incident or two.

And no I haven't even looked at the bridal shower shots. Sigh.

smooches,
dani

  1. Well I'm tuned it to see how your Mother Talzin turns out. I've always been intrigued by the far-out minded people. I'm sure you are going to come up with something great!

  2. Thanks Vanessa. I guess when she's done she'll be donated to the Hubs and his Star Wars toy collection. I have no time for dolls that are just around for display! This should be fun!

    And hey, I need a distraction from all the stuff I'm SUPPOSED to be doing!

  3. Well if you need a grayer body the Skull Shores Frankie is gray. I'm intrigued by what you will do. I loved the LOTR & Star Wars (the early ones..I was a kid). But I take no offense :O)

  4. Well I definitely need a bald one for Ventress. I think that Build a Monster thing they have will be good. I can find a gray there, but Ventress is also sort of purple and greenish from certain angles. You won't see much of Mother Talzin's skin. She kind of looks like she's wearing some white powder so I'm hoping that will work..

    I did a "rough draft" and it was not cute!! I have some work to do!

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
