Remi and Bailey's Part Two

Okay so the place is done. Ish. The studio is of course, still really raw. And I didn't estimate the actually space properly, so I had to turn the room around. What was imagined to be this:



Is now this. Which I actually prefer. Originally it was going to be in the back of the structure so we could have a peek of paint splattered walls from the living room.
So that has to be cleaned up a bit.

Anyway, here's the tour:


Ooops, the stairs are still in my basement workshop.




Here's the main level. Correction: Here is Remi shirtless on the main level. Grrrowl!


Here's the upper level. Hmm, can't see much up there, can you? This is going to need a redesign unless I move the house to a shorter table.

Here's what's upstairs now.  Yeah, you're not missing a whole lot.

"You may be acquainted with our shared studio."

"That flesh woman promised me a TV! I'm missing Dr. Who!" Remi frets.

The room divider. My mom found this in a thrift store for me. I knew I'd have to build a home around it.



"Here is where I will cook our many meals."


"Dude, there's nothing in here but daikon and hot sauce."


  "I sure wish some big strappin' man would hang my kitchen shelving."


Here is a potential front entrance area. But it will likely not have a working door. It will interfere with the spiral stair.

"Thanks for visiting our new home!"


To come: revamp of the upstairs barrier, art, maybe windows, I have the worst luck with them.  And I'll spent some quality time roughing up the studio

Now, onto my next project!! (Gimme a coupla weeks, some stuff coming in from China).

Smooches,
dani


UPDATE: Just saw this on Facebook from the Chicago Kenvention. Totally stealing the top level barrier idea!

  1. May I just say how I am so blown away with your incredible use of foam core board?!?! Once I move (hopefully in the next couple of months) I may have to get rid of Mattel issued structures and pick your brain!! So much more space and realism! *hugs*

    1. I am really excited for the potential! Plus with Smidgegirl's advice to rip the paper off foamcore, I can paint with freedom now. Plus the T-pins help keep it from warping too much. YAY!

  3. This couple is too flippin' cute! For some reason, I get a vibe off them that they're like 1/6 size of you and your hubby before the beautiful little ones. They're my favorite couple of Grandville.

    Now, on to that fantabulous studio...that's HOT! Kudos to your mom on that room/divider bookshelf...SCORE! I'm really feeling the side entrance area. I can see them hangin' out with friends...too cute.

    I'm sorry Dani, but the more I look at this "home" I have to steal this idea from you. Like I mentioned last post, I can place it up high on the closet shelf and my little one can't get to it. Bravo!!

    1. Thanks Ro! She is the best. She also gave me this crazy old wood file sorter. I'm going to make it into a couch for my niece's American Girl Doll I think.

  7. Love the room divider and the claw-footed tub ... too. Nice to get a peep of the studio to come.

  8. Love the loft. My favorite is Bailey posing trying to get her shelves put up. By the way, I was staring for a while looking for the TV they appeared to be watching. LOL! I looked high and I looked low. Too funny. Great divider. Way to go mom. Looking forward to the new project.

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
