Mademoiselle Marie Returns to Grandville

Caution: Doll nudity.

Oh my dears it has been a hellish couple of weeks in which the girls have entirely forgotten how to sleep. There is hardly any doll time these days. Still, I am working on a project to be revealed in a week or so. Always gotta keep those hands busy no matter how little time I have!

Anywho, Mademoiselle Marie is back from getting an intensive hair transplant and face up from our own dear Cat from A Doll Affinity, who at this point I'm going to consider my personal re-rooter. As you saw on her blog, she did a fantastic job giving Marie dreadlocks.

If you remember, poor Marie was frightful to look at.

So I was all giddy to rebody her then the trouble began. Pour quoi Marie?! Sacre bleu!

Mme. Marie has a soft fleshy chest plate that pops off. It's the same body as Ms. Fear but Fear's chest is hard. The fleshy chest must have somehow shrunk. Her head flopped around, it was a mess. I put her on Miss Fear's body (who now has a CZ girl body) and the same head wobble!

Look at the mug on this dame. I had to make something work.

I tried some Obitsu parts and different types of bodies and nothing worked. I finally put her on her own body and gave her Ms. Fear's breastplate. A bit off color but not too shabby.

 She was originally going to be sort of a cyber fetish goth? I dunno what to call them. They wear fetish gear and do all kinds of anime type stuff with their hair. Like this.

But I got a much more gutter punk vibe about her. Hmm, a google search for gutter punk did not yield what I thought. There are these punks around here who basically dress like classic Sex Pistols type punks, but instead of black, they wear brown. It's very Mad Max. They look like they just rolled around in mud. Let's call them mud punks.

UPDATE: They are actually called Crusty Punks.

She's like the kind of girl who doesn't shower much but seems to get laid just the same. She's going to be Felix's sister. Maybe I should put her in the wedding...

What a face. Beautiful job Cat! I can't wait to put little cruddy little charms in her hair like Jack Sparrow. I thought of also dipping the tips of the dreads in a bleach and water solution.
 Iris photo bomb!

Here's a quickie of Felix and Dani's new house. It's all white now with wood contact paper floor in the living room and some tile in the kitchen. Just gotta do the floors on the second level, hang some art and it's done (ish).
Had just a few minutes to shoot Bianca and the family. I promise a full scene soon. You're going to love to hate her. She needs a redress. Those pants are just too short. You can also seen the remains of the saddest park bench ever. It collapsed on me.
 Josephine is none too pleased with her new houseguest.



  1. Wow! Marie and Felix and Dani's new house look smashing! And for some reason, I always love villans! Can't wait to see Bianca's official apperance!

  2. I know! My most devious characters are the most popular! Poor Dani (the bride to be) she's so oatmeal and cornflakes. YAWN.

  3. Marie turned out really nice. Her dreads suit her. Enjoyed seeing all the pictures. I love the Bianca Jordan doll, so I can't wait to see her in action.

The Arrival of Kala

My first first-hand BJD has arrived!  She's a Dollmore Keeley Sum purchased through Denver Doll Emporium. She arrived with a broken foot joint so DDE is getting Dollmore to send me another. It was fairly distressing to open the package to THAT surprise, but she's so beautiful, she immediately captured my heart.

I recently made arrangements to sell Sunnie and I can see it is totally for the best. THIS is what a new bjd owner should feel. Something like maternal pride, an obsessive need to care for her.

Her working name is Kala (not Eden anymore). We'll talk about her back story in another post but for now, all you need to know is she's an early Neolithic woman. Here she is wearing a wig by D. Resin on Flickr. She's amazing.

This is Kala's stuff I've been collecting.

Here is a size comparison of the Dollmore Model F body and the older Dream of Teen by Dream of Doll body.

You know me, peeps, I have a need to make doll environments as strongly as my need to h…

So Where Were We?

Hello my friends!

Man I have been slacking. I got so into the Roku situation that I have completely neglected the dolls. And since my car died and I now have a car note, my insane doll shopping spree is at a close. Except I found the 1960s Reading Deluxe Dream Kitchen (minus table and chairs) at a thrift store for $35. Then there was this cute pitcher there (on the dishwasher) and a Gibson guitar, so...(forgive the cellphone pic).

Anyway I hope to getting back to a craft/diorama focus in my doll work.

Can I be honest? I am terrified of my camera. I've avoided it since my last post. Setting up lights takes forever and changing them for every scene and the cords and the scary wiring in this house. Then taking 100 pics and those being all wrong and doing it again after I already took down all the damn lights. Ugh.

So whatever. When I do a glamour shot I'll fiddle with lighting and post production. But for photostories, eff it.

The following shots are done with a flash and auto-f…

BJD: Vinyl to Resin

So I think people really wants to know why I am taking this plunge, or maybe you don't give a crap but I'm going to tell you anyway.

Maturity: Not saying that 1/6th folks aren't mature!!! But there is something very mature about the BJD hobby that is populated with so many young people. Depending on the company or customizations, you may have to wait up to forty effin' weeks. That is how long it takes to make a human. It takes patience. And you're going to take time to make the right choice. I'm resigning myself to not seeing my first doll until my bday in November. The dolls and accessories are not always cheap. You have to budget yourself, save up and earn that dang doll.You need a gentle touch when you're handling these dolls. You can't afford to damage them. They make special travel cases for them! Dropping them could mean seriously damaging a nose. They yellow in time and if you keep them in the sun. You have to find a place to keep them safe.(Crap…
