Meet the Sister

I was packing up when I realized you hadn't met the sister yet.

But first for a bit of their folklore. Their home planet, as yet unnamed, is divided by humanoids that live on land and those that live at sea. Nymeria takes after her nymph mother and Sister like their earthy father.

[Sister is a Frankie Stein doll and her hair is flocked with caraway seeds. She wears Jack Sparrow's bandana as a top and another piece of it on the waistband of her Barbie Galadriel dress sleeve. Yes I cut it a long time ago and I'm an idiot. I didn't get a good shot of the skirt at all. It's got a nice hip hugging fit when she stands.]

The people of this planet have guarded the Stone of Amaranth for eons. Every lifetime, two females are chosen. One to communicate with the Stone and one to guard her. The one who communicates with the Stone drops her name forever and is only known as Sister.

For the first time in hundreds of generations, the pair are sisters. And for the first time ever, a Sister is blind. It is said this is why she has more power and connection to the Stone than any other Sister in history.

"Well here she is folks, my big sister. Isn't she pretty? Remember what I said about being nice to her."



 "The Stone and I are one."


"I told you she was delicate. You see, the Stone knows everything. All that was and will be, all over the universe. So if you had it inside your head you'd be a little loopy too."

"I'm blind, not deaf you twerp."

 


 "Anyway, we've just landed here on Earth. I'm not sure why we're here. Waiting for some intel from the Stone. Isn't that cute? I sound like one of you now."

"Nymeria, I'm getting something. Oh no."
 

"Nym, help me to the ship. Terrible news."


"Nymeria, the Stone must stay here on Earth. Powerful forces seek to destroy it and us with it. We must find something called a 'gypsy'."


Okay consider that a prologue for that fairy tale I was supposed to be working on like a year ago.

Miss you guys!

smooches,
dani

  1. At least they've come to the right dolly-universe to find a gypsy ;-D

    Looking forward to reading what message the gypsy will have for them.

  2. The Sister looks so interesting! Do you know, what you've managed to do with your base MH dolls?
    You've managed to make them break out of the cookie-cutter mold that most of them are in AND make me look at them not as MH dolls but as believable creatures of another kind. I really, really like that. And I love the caraway seed hair! :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…

BJD: Vinyl to Resin

So I think people really wants to know why I am taking this plunge, or maybe you don't give a crap but I'm going to tell you anyway.


Maturity: Not saying that 1/6th folks aren't mature!!! But there is something very mature about the BJD hobby that is populated with so many young people. Depending on the company or customizations, you may have to wait up to forty effin' weeks. That is how long it takes to make a human. It takes patience. And you're going to take time to make the right choice. I'm resigning myself to not seeing my first doll until my bday in November. The dolls and accessories are not always cheap. You have to budget yourself, save up and earn that dang doll.You need a gentle touch when you're handling these dolls. You can't afford to damage them. They make special travel cases for them! Dropping them could mean seriously damaging a nose. They yellow in time and if you keep them in the sun. You have to find a place to keep them safe.(Crap…

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…
