Meeting the In-laws

Meeting the in-laws is never quite easy for us flesh humans and it's the same in Grandville...

But first, an opening act:

So I dress Morgan in this outfit.

Then I hear this small voice going "Elmo? Elmo. Elmo!" I showed Isobel the doll to assure her it was not him, not even the right color but she persisted in mournful wails "Ewmo...ewmo...ewmo."  So I dressed a headless body in a pink fur, attempted to hand it to her and she ran screaming from the room. Oops.

Bianca Boulanger, sister to Josephine and mother of Remi and Nikki has come to Grandville to meet her new grandson.

"He's awfully light, are you sure he's Remi's son?" 

Nikki: Mom!
Bianca: What, I'm just saying the kid is light.
Veronica: My father is Syrian. He looks like my grandmother
Bianca: Mmm, convenient.

Veronica: I think we'll go now. He's been traumatized enough for one day.

Nikki: Mom, what is wrong with you? You can't talk to people like that!
Bianca: Please, she deprived me of a grandson for five years. She's lucky I didn't claw her eyes out.

Later that evening.
Bianca: Well, I see you still can't grow any hair.
Josephine: I cut my hair short, Bianca. You know that.
Bianca: I'm just saying, a wig wouldn't kill you.

Bianca: Well I see just one month in your care and already my son is bringing home bastards.

Marie: then I do this wicked stage dive and knock three of his teeth out!

Marie: Dude, thanks for letting me crash here...for a few weeks.
Dani: Oh um, of course! [weeks? thinks Dani]

Dani: After all, we'll be sisters soon!

Bailey: It's nice to meet you, Bianca.
Bianca: That's Madame Boulanger if you don't mind.
Remi: (thinking) Why did she wear a skull shirt and leggings to meet my mom?!

Remi: So here we are, me and my two best girls!

Strained silence.

In other news, my avatar doll arrived. She's not a total fright. And Iris couldn't wait to play with her. Hands off, kiddo.

She reminds me of Dionne from Clueless (Stacey Dash). Didn't Cher wear an outfit similar in Clueless?

The hair was pretty bad though. So experiment number one was a boiling water dip for the curly part in the back.

Went better than my expected. Or maybe it's just because her hair is wet? A good trim and we'll be on our way.
Look at that ridiculous chunk of straight hair in the front.  Why did they do this to her?!
 So next I'll try to curl that hair. Stay tuned.

"Darling, you know the only reason they're going to stay tuned is to see more of me."

 Touche Madame Boulanger.



  1. Grandville NEVER disappoints! LOL...let's get that weak show Gossip Girls off the air and replace it with Grandville shenanigans. ;)

    Wow, Bianca...I mean..."Madame Boulanger" is STUNNING! FR ladies really do make the most interesting and realistic looking characters.

    Loved it!

  2. hehehehe, "Weeks?..." XD I love it. And the new avatar looks pretty cute, I like your picture better than theirs, I think. I can't wait to see what you do with her.

    And ooooh, Elmo.... what a disappointment! I can see how your wee one would be mistaken though!

  3. Madame Boulanger is a MESS! I've met quite a few women like her. Too funny. Looks like you've been getting a lot done. I like your Dynamite Girl. Looking forward to seeing her new do.

  4. Thanks guys! Madame Boulanger is tough to please. I don't have anything "suitable" for her to wear. What a snob. Some women are so hard to please!

  5. Madame Boulanger is awsome! I know she's supposed to be a villan, but I sorta like villans :). Although if she met me, I'm sure she wouldn't approve of me...

  6. Man I would have to walk out the room if I ever met Bianca, however she is someone you love to hate! Good story!

  7. Madame "B" has earned her name. Lol!! Nice story. Your little one is too cute!

  8. Thanks ladies! Verona, I can't think of anyone she would approve of. But she has a soft side in there too...somewhere. Maybe Julian will bring it out in her. When the results of the paternity test are in, that is!

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!
