Grandville Festival Part Deux

You know, I should never wait more than a day to post pictures I've taken. As I'm shooting, the dialogue is in my head but a few days (weeks?) later, it's all but forgotten. So I'm forced to rewrite what I am sure was comedy gold.

Anyway, let's give this a shot.

Last we saw Nikki and Judah, they were off to greet the Figueroas, Pia and Dani.

"You guys, this is Judah..."

"Are you seriously going to call Raven and tell her that her dad is boning Nikki?"
"Of course, I'm her best friend."

"But we promised!" Penny squeals.
"Those clothes are clearly poisoning your mind."

"Lavita Terrell for Channel One news back in Grandville park with Mayor Josephine Boulanger. Mayor Boulanger, what is your favorite part of the Summer Festival?"

"Well there is a lot to appreciate here in Grandville. From our mountains to the shore. And we are a truly diverse community. So for me, it's seeing all our interesting people out here, having a good time with friends and family."

"Are you ready, my love?"
"I'm not sure if I can do this Rai."

 "You must my darling. I'm right here with you."

Dani gasps, "Is that--?"
"Yup," Pia replies.

 "Dani," Hanna greets. "I thought I might see you here."

 "I did a horrible thing to you...and Felix. I know it means nothing but I am so sorry. I know you can never forgive me but know that I ache with remorse every day of my life. I don't blame you for burning down my studio."

"What? I didn't burn down your studio. I'm not the sort of person who would that to someone. Anyone. Not even an enemy, let alone a friend. But we were never friends, were we Hanna?"

"Of course we were, since boarding school. I guess I was always jealous...and sickened by your goodness. I wanted to crush you."

 "Do you think we could ever try again?"


 "You bitch, I will kill you!"

"Rai, calm down. I deserved that."
Lots of cursing in Portuguese.

Hmm, this Dani has more balls than I thought, thinks Pia.

 It. Ain't. Ovah.



  1. awww shucks! That woman has real moxie!

    1. It's about time! Hanna has stolen all Dani's boyfriends since high school! Glad she's standing up for herself.

  2. Oh, Shizz! I thought it was about to be a whut? - a girl fight (now that song is in my head)

    I love how Hanna is all supplicant but basically accuses Dani of arson and says her goodness was sickening. I'm surprised she's not smacked more often, lol.

    1. hahaha. I couldn't let Hanna be totally innocent!

  3. Sorry you forgot your ‘comedy gold dialogue’ (I know the feeling, ha-ha!), but this was pretty good (Portuguese swearing – ha-haaaa!). Glad you added ‘this is not over’. I need to see how things pan out.

    1. hahah. Oh will it ever pan out? This story's been going on for years now. But I'm hoping that I'm getting closer...

  4. Woah! I'm surprised Rai didn't pounce on her. I love the scene with the Mayor and the reporter.

    1. Thanks! I miss Josephine! She needs to be involved more...

  5. Oh my God!!
    Hannah "I'm so regret" look is AWESOME!!!

    1. Thanks Sergio! I did this for you! No petty revenge here. Just slow seething growing hatred....

    1. Our own sweet Dani. I didn't think she had it in her.

  7. I actually laughed out loud at the slap. I imagined her falling to her knee. Lol. Pia's expession did it for me. Great episode.

The Arrival of Kala

My first first-hand BJD has arrived!  She's a Dollmore Keeley Sum purchased through Denver Doll Emporium. She arrived with a broken foot joint so DDE is getting Dollmore to send me another. It was fairly distressing to open the package to THAT surprise, but she's so beautiful, she immediately captured my heart.

I recently made arrangements to sell Sunnie and I can see it is totally for the best. THIS is what a new bjd owner should feel. Something like maternal pride, an obsessive need to care for her.

Her working name is Kala (not Eden anymore). We'll talk about her back story in another post but for now, all you need to know is she's an early Neolithic woman. Here she is wearing a wig by D. Resin on Flickr. She's amazing.

This is Kala's stuff I've been collecting.

Here is a size comparison of the Dollmore Model F body and the older Dream of Teen by Dream of Doll body.

You know me, peeps, I have a need to make doll environments as strongly as my need to h…

So Where Were We?

Hello my friends!

Man I have been slacking. I got so into the Roku situation that I have completely neglected the dolls. And since my car died and I now have a car note, my insane doll shopping spree is at a close. Except I found the 1960s Reading Deluxe Dream Kitchen (minus table and chairs) at a thrift store for $35. Then there was this cute pitcher there (on the dishwasher) and a Gibson guitar, so...(forgive the cellphone pic).

Anyway I hope to getting back to a craft/diorama focus in my doll work.

Can I be honest? I am terrified of my camera. I've avoided it since my last post. Setting up lights takes forever and changing them for every scene and the cords and the scary wiring in this house. Then taking 100 pics and those being all wrong and doing it again after I already took down all the damn lights. Ugh.

So whatever. When I do a glamour shot I'll fiddle with lighting and post production. But for photostories, eff it.

The following shots are done with a flash and auto-f…

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…
