Two Story Updates!

Hello my dears!

It's been longer than I wanted but I had some improvements to make. The Hubs was kind enough to give up some of our shared space in the basement so I could have my workshop separate from the town of Grandville. Now I have a bit more room to spread out. I'll do a tour of that in the next post I think.

My big challenge is backgrounds. I have been plagued with wood paneled walls in my doll rooms. And when I expanded Grandville park recently it became a real issue. So I painted some Dollar Tree foamcore (uh, just remove the paper if you plan on painting). And voila, blue sky. It's not cute at the creases but it is so much better than wood paneled sky.

Let's get to it. Okay remember I was going to have a place called The Spot? Well I soon realized I did not have upscale swanky bar/lounge furniture. So I used what I had and made Sutra, Isha's bar/lounge (a cover for her secret underground brothel).

Isha entertaining a client.

Nikki makes eye contact with Felix, who quickly looks away.
 
  
Is he on a date? I thought he and Dani were reconciling.

Forget him, I need to focus on me. Damn, I'm so nervous. I hate blind dates.

 "Oh!" Nikki gasps, pleasantly surprised.
"I'm so sorry if I'm late."

"Nikki, I presume? I'm Judah. It's wonderful to finally meet you."
"Finally? Didn't you just see me for the first time this morning?" Dang it Nikki, stop being a smartass, she thinks.
Judah laughs. "I like spunky women."

"Well I think we're gonna get along just fine, Judah."
 
They talked into the night until Sutra closed for the evening.

Then decided to take a walk in the park. [This photo is only included to show you part of the new park. She looks like she's about to fall backwards.]


Neither of them had much luck with dating and they were savoring every moment of this deep connection.
 
 Then well...
  smooch!


Okay so last we saw Hanna, she was about to head out on the town to Club Population, reluctantly.

"Hanna!" her brother Hans greeted. She was grateful he was the first person she encountered.

"Holy crap, this bitch is back?"
 

 "Hanna, why didn't you tell me you were back in town?"
"I was afraid Hans. You were dating Felix's buxom sister. If you, of all people rejected me now..."
"You are my sister and I will always be here for you. Plus I dumped her ages ago."

The crowd reacts to her appearance.

"The hell?" Marie slurs.

"Morgan, you're a true friend. Thank you for welcoming me with open arms."
"Oh there are plenty of us that still like you, Hanna."
"I can't imagine why."
 

Hanna knows she has to amends.
 "Sookie, Marie, there is nothing I can say or do to make up for ruining Dani and Felix's relationship. As their siblings, I can understand why you hate me."


"You did more than ruined their relationship. You had my brother raped. You are a fucking monster. And if I wasn't gonna be the first suspect, I would kill you myself."

"I've done a lot of terrible things to some good people. I know it will take time, but I hope we can share the same community without strife."

 "Um, who is this bitch glaring at me?"

"I'm Pia Fitzgerald," she growls.
 

"My big sister."

"Ah, young, fragile Penny. I have no apologies to offer you. You might as well get acquainted with the nature of the male beast."

 "Any girl dumb enough to date Zeke deserves what she gets."
"Hey!" Zeke shouts from the back.

"I've been dreading this meeting the most, Bailey."
"As well you should. You did some evil shit, man."

"I know. I know. It seemed harmless at the time, if you can believe it," Hanna said.
"You have got to let this obsession with Dani go. If you expect to keep my friendship, you leave that girl alone now."
"I will. I promise."

"Okay, get in here, girl," Bailey says.

"Come meet my boyfriend and girlfriend."
"God, you're such a slut."

She's just so purdy, I threw this in.

I have another story for you but it's nearly my bedtime, so look for one tomorrow maybe? Finally the story of my royals begins! Then stops again because I ordered a home for Princess Victoire but it is going to need some work before it's fit for a queen.

smooches,
dani

  2. Whoa, I missed that story bit where Hanna had Felix raped?! Or is Marie exaggerating. Fumbling with computer, gotta check.

    The new park makes a great backdrop. Inspiring ;-)

  3. Sweeet. Love both stories. Again I say, Judah, Judah, Judah. He and Nikki make a great couple. Love that park! Club population is so alive. Hanna does look great in her outfit with her new reroot.

    1. Thanks Sergio. There are two Fallen Angels pictured. The one seated is on a Pop Life body. The one talking to rockabilly Zeke is on a Liv body.

  5. Great entrance and love the club! Your park looks wonderful and even though Nikki looked like she might be falling, Judah definitely looked like he was catching her. They're going to be great together. :)

    1. Thanks doll! (Though I like calling women "dolls", calling a doll lover, "doll" is kinda weird.

  6. Ahhh! So glad you are back. The park looks awesome! Quick question, when painting the foamboard did you just use a solid light blue or did you paint light clouds or anything? By the way, I am so jealous of your "Pia" doll, she is on by dream doll list! Look great!

    1. Hi Connor, I painted it with solid blue paint thinned out with water and rolled on with a mini roller you can get in any paint section. Anytime I use a brush it looks really streaky and messy. I was thinking about doing clouds at a later date. I just needed something right away for an upcoming story.

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
