Changes for Grandville

Because nothing delays a wedding like reorganizing a whole town, Grandville has made a big move this weekend!  I shared a room with my sister growing up and I didn't want my girls to miss out on that experience, so I put them in one room and gave them the big room that housed Grandville as their play room.

Instead, I, being of a charitable and noble sort, took the smallest room in the house for my doll town.

Honestly speaking, what I need is usable wall space and the small room seems to have more than the big room. And now it doesn't have all that wasted space in the middle of the room.

So here's the new Grandville. It's not very different. Just a lot of work moving it all.

My doll trading buddy, Angela sent me a load of goodies. I noticed some clothes were a little big for my dolls, so luckily, Ms Fear got to inherit some new stuff.  There are even some pieces that fit June, my transexual.

Oooh la la.

 Don't worry Ms. Fear, something tells me there's a man in your future (besides Buddha).
 Look out Annette Funicello, there's a new sweater girl in town.

And here are some random shots:

That's all for now. I'm just a small spray paint job away from unveiling the renovated airplane, so stay tuned!

smooches,

  4. Grandville looks wonderful. I'm still dreaming of having enough space to display all my dolls and their tiny tings. They all live in boxes and I bet they feel very neglected.

    The doll with black and red hair, is she a Barbie or what brand is she?

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
