TWO New Photostories

I know, can you believe it?  Neither are my best work, but these stories need to get told so I can move on.

This guy has been sitting in the shadows of Miho's apartment for like 6 months. I've been dying to introduce him but something always got in the way. Josephine even mentioned him at the bridal shower. That was supposed to push me, but I rebel against even myself:

Anyway, here we are. In the next segment, we'll find out more about Miho's past. Wait, I thought I could put a hyperlink in my photo. Whatever. Here.


Next is part two of the Bachelor Party, in which you find out why Hanna is sad. I think after all this mess, she's going to have to go back to Sweden for a while. I don't know who wants her in Grandville. But she'll return. We all need an antagonist!  Go here for part two (of at least three).  If you haven't read Part One, you might want to do that so you know what's going on.

smooches,

  1. YAAAY! You have no idea how better you just made my day! Oooh, how romantic, Miho was involved with the yakuza, and Tipsey is smashing! Can't wait to see more of her.

    1. Thanks Verona! A long time ago, in a land far away, I used to be a writer, writing the worst novels ever. One was a detective/jewel thief novel. Tipsey Marlowe was the hero's best friend who betrayed her. She was such a fun villain, I had to bring her to life. Tipsey's look will be changing a lot, so she can have plenty of disguises...

  2. WOW! Even two stories? You're not spoiling us a little too much? ;) And what stories! I am always fascinated by what you can create with your dolls

    1. Hahah! Thanks Sergio. Honestly they were pretty rushed. I was thinking of photoshopping Tipsey in front of fire but I knew my edges are always pretty choppy. I finally just stood her in front of the computer screen. Easy! I'll be using that technique again soon!

  3. Yumi got a daddd-deee; Yumi got a daddd-deee. Cool story there. I LOVE Miho's Mom. The Fear family is very interesting ....

    I love how you created Mama Fear from an R&D Susie (guessing ;-D) - I would not have thought to cast her as an older character, but she looks great in that role. Especially with the salt'n pepper hair.

    Hanna is something else. Poor Sookie. Poor Felix ... don't know what side affects he might suffer from. I'll be back to read about it though, lol.

    1. Sometimes these dolls really surprise you. Mama Fear was just supposed to walk in and Norio would be confronted with the knowledge that he had a daughter. Mama Fear has seen some gangsters in her day. Miho never felt very loved by Mama Fear so this was a real turning point in their relationship.

    2. Oh and the Susie thing. Yes, she's a Comme ca du Mao Susie, though I wanted an Hanoi Hue Susie. I used to take doll magazines and cut pictures out for framing. So years ago, Miss Fear had Hanoi Hue Susie framed in her house and I decided it was her mother in her youth. So I had to get one for this character! Cat from Doll Affinity did the awesome re-root and I painted a few lines as best I could!

      It's going to be hard for Dani and Felix to mend this. Sure, it wasn't his fault but it doesn't change the fact that she'll see that stripper every time she looks at him. I honestly don't know how it will end...

  4. You go girl! Two stories. That's so funny that you mentioned Mean Girls. That movie is sitting on the top of my TV right now. Your stories always make me laugh.

    1. Glad I could give you a chuckle Vanessa! I am just obsessed with high school movies. In brainstorming how the dolls could get revenge on Hanna, I kept thinking of that movie. Too bad you can't make a doll fat, not really...

  5. Mama Fear is the business! Talk about Granny don't play, lol, love her and her attitude. Did you make the furniture in that dio? It's very stylish. The action sequence in the second story grabbed me by my, "fire, pretty," balls!

    1. I know, I love Mama Fear! Someday you'll hear her story too. No I didn't make the furniture. That was Liz's Retros on etsy. Good, sturdy heavy stuff. She makes some great 1/6 scale mid-century clothing too.

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
