Remi and Bailey's New Place

Okay it's not finished, but I couldn't resist sharing. Here I am thinking of buying and customizing bookshelves when I could just buy foam core and make homes!




I'm not finished yet. I have to scruff up the "concrete" floor, find the missing black piece for my staircase, or maybe use a ladder staircase. I'll add some railing to the top floor, and I'm thinking of making a piece for the front that folds out so you can close it up and it will have a front door and windows.

Also, there is an additional room, a studio for both of them. He's a graffiti artist and she's a keyboardist. So some things may shift around.
 
Oh guys, I caved in and took down Tallulah's hair. It looks pretty good. I didn't have to do any trimming or anything. I dunno what is up with this picture. She doesn't have strange triangles on her eyes...You'll have better pictures soon. She's up for a photostory!


 And here is the happy couple enjoying a family moment. Can't we get rid of Veronica (Julian's mom)? It would be so easy if she wasn't around. Ah, such is life. Maybe you'd see a custody battle in their future.

I'm going to try to get this loft finished this weekend, so I hope to show you more soon!!

smooches,
dani

    1. You have read this blog before, right? You'll notice I've been using foam core as well, but only to build rooms, not a whole home.

    1. Thanks Sergio. The stairs come from a My Scene playset. Here Em'lia took these stairs and filled in the cracks with plaster. I'd like to do this. Give it a more realistic feel...http://emiliacouture.blogspot.com/2008/07/spiral-staircase.html

  5. This looks great Dani, and what a fabulous idea! I've been thinking about those storage shelves but my little one is getting way too curious about my toys, so this idea I may have to use for the high shelf in my closet. It's tall enough to make this design and get multiple condos made. Hmm...great idea and way more affordable. :)

    Bailey and Remi are an adorable couple! Julian fits right in with them, too cute. Tallulah's hair looks beautiful. Can't wait to see her story...

    1. The best part is the ability to take it apart or add to it, rearrange it, etc. I want to have permanent homes, but changing it up is always fun! Oooh, the potential for the rest of my folks!

  6. Great job Dani! It looks really good. I can't wait for you to finish it. I regret not purchasing the My Scene Masquerade set. The cost is phenomenal nowadays.

    1. Thanks Georgia Girl! I wish I knew the treasure I had when I had it too. I let several pieces go, including that window. Grr!

  7. Love this idea and cant wait to see how your progression goes. LOL, too bad Veronica is about to get the boot, but sacrifices must be made for the sake of drama.

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
