The Dive Bar Bathroom

I have been sick all week so forgive me if this post is hazy and devoid of humor.

When I work on projects, I start 3 more before I finish one so I wondered if this would ever be completed. I still want to add some things. A hand dryer, a garbage can, more garbage on the floor and some scenic water in the beautiful toilet.

This project was a lot of fun. I may try to do more gross things in the future. It takes less precision and yields better results than the "pretty" things I attempt.

May I present to you: The Dive Bar Bathroom:



Raven looks up at Sooki, "Man I'm gonna get gonorrhea from this nasty toilet."
Sooki replies, "Well, that's the only way you'll get it, virgin."
"Better than being a slut like you!" Raven retorts.
Sookie giggles, "If you say so!"

Penny writes anti-Hanna graffiti on the wall:




Hmm, my urinal is too clean...

Sooki dictates a supplement to the graffiti. 


Here's a view of the light fixture.

Here's how I lit the bathroom. (I will add more lights for future scenes)

"God, I can't believed I touched that toilet, but I'm too drunk to hover!"


Here are some shots sans dolls. See? Needs more trash.






Really it's a lot more sanitary than some bar bathrooms I've been in!  It's not perfect but I'm really proud of this work.

smooches,
dani

    1. Thanks Verona. Seeing my sister's face when she saw my toilet in the works was priceless. And her comment, "But um, why?" let me know I was onto something!

  6. It's fabulous! I was thinking it needs a condom machine, too. When I saw the first picture, I immediately thought, "is she sitting on the toilet? Oh No!". Lordy, lordy. She could have at least put toilet paper down. I love it!

  7. Sorry, I'd have to squat over that toilet. Heck, even the walls have stains ... eeeewwww! Now some of the grottier public restrooms that I have seen have had balled up toilet paper on the ground, candy wrappers (mind and soul shudder at the juxtaposition), and - no lie - poop scooped on tile. No lie. But yours doesn't have to descend that far ;-D

    1. I feel you! I went to the bathroom in a pizza joint in NY and I guess it was the employee bathroom? I swear to your, there was poop smeared all over the toilet! It was crazy! It was like too much to have come out of one human! I ran outta there (without eating of course!)

  8. Oh and your pride is justified. Two thumbs up for realism and repulsiveness ;-D

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
