Big Sister's in Town and a Lurve Connection?

Hiya folks,

I'm still procrastinating on the royal story. Every time I play the scene in my head where Princess Victoire meets Dani, it keeps changing. I positively did not know how I wanted it to play out.

Then I suddenly remembered why I wanted a castle in the first place. But I'm not giving it away yet. I'll just say this, Zolandia is not going to be the wholesome place I thought it would be.

Anyway, did I tell you about the doll trade from the heavens? I'm sure I did, but I never photographed much of it, so check it out. (You'll see the rest by and by.) When I knew I was getting the A-frame cottage, I never thought this sucker would be so big. It was so good that I couldn't let Zolandia have it. This is gonna be the party house. I don't know if it will belong to anyone in particular.

So much for my big Grandville Park but it fits here perfectly.

It's so big, I got my whole Bratz (?) sushi bar up here with no problem and lots of space for losers to hang out.

I love that 70's attention to detail. Can't wait to paint this. BUT it will be a long time from now. Maybe a year or two. I want to drink in the tacky charm.

Across the house on the bottom level. This is all temporary decor, trying this weird space on. I made some foam core walls years ago and with a little trim on top they will fit nicely on either of these open sides so I can have some options when shooting pics.

So until the house is ready for a party, (when the royals and the squares finally leave Grandville maybe) the gang is over at Population. Let's join them.

Introducing Cheri*, Zeke's older sister:
 *also from the best trade ever.

I've been wanting a blonde that wasn't pure evil like Hanna. While she's definitely got a naughty gleam in her eye, I think this blonde is going to be smart and good.
Pia: What the hell do you want?
Zeke: You're looking lovely tonight, Pia. I see your sister isn't here. Maybe now we can talk, get to know--

Ava: Hey, is Aragorn mackin' on your sister over there?
Zeke: Whaaaa?!

"Hey Cheri, how you been? Lookin' good."
"Aragorn.  You certainly haven't changed much."

Pia: Can I borrow Hans tonight? I need to punish-fuck something blond."
Ava: Yeah, I'm not sure we're even dating. 

Ava: Hans, darling?
Pia: Don't say a word, pretty boy. Just meet me out back.

Another set of siblings watches the action from a far. "Hey Marie, who's that girl over there?"
"Which one? They're both new in town."

"Wow, Tipsey, it's lovely to meet you. Your band is amazing. I dropped acid the other day and listened to your album on a loop for like 7 hours."
"That means so much to me Claire. Your reputation proceeds you. I hope we can work together soon."

"The short haired one wearing, like, underpants in public without looking slutty. She is spectacular"
"I'll find out for you."

"Oh no."

"Aw, man, she's leaving."
"Small town. You'll see her again."

I'm currently working on fixing up rooms in Josephine's house. Hanna, Claire, Aria and Sooki live there so far. I'm working on some home improvement things for Remi and Bailey. And the royals royals royals.



  1. Que gran cantidad de barbies y ken, claro se que hay de otro estilo. Esta vez no pude entender claramente la historia, no hablo ingles, pero me agradan tus fotos.

  2. Ok, first, awesome work you did on the castle, you have fairy hands! Wow!!
    OMG! We have the same barbie house, or for better say, my sisters have that barbie house :-( They keep it in our storage, it's forbidden for me :-(
    Btw, so cool you found one!
    Love your narrative intrigues <3

  3. Congrats on getting The Barbie Dream Cottage. Looks great! If you think that's big, you should see the A-Frame house. It's huge! Nice to see the crowd at Population.

  4. Lot going on in Population! I know you will do well by the Cottage. :-)

  5. I have seen that same house repainted black and white and used as an Asian restaurant with the sushi bar upstairs too! I think most of the houses are huge! LOL!

    1. hahah I just saw that sushi bar version online! I'm obsessed with ooak barbie houses, but most are just too small, even when they are big!

  6. We here in the Royal World of Daniel are waiting in anticipation for the Zolandia Launch. All my Royals are ready to tune into your Royal story. Also remember to contact me if you need anything in the area of jewellery.

  7. Congratulations on the new scene setter.

    I like how you've restyled Zeke's hair and Aragon's hair.

  8. Thanks D7ana. Poor Aragorn. He doesn't have a real name and his hair could use a little update! Projects projects projects!

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 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!
