The Royal Family of Zolandia

My dear friends,

I was cleaning up the doll room last night, feeling free to spend a week doing that instead of the many projects piling up.  Then I realized that my work is not done here. I can't leave you all without some royal closure. So off we go!

Victoire:  I'm not accustomed to waiting.
Emmanuelle: Well we certainly didn't want to give him advanced notice.  

Tallulah and Victor stroll home from dinner.

Victor: Someone needs to rid the sidewalks of the skateboards. Someone is going to break their neck.
Tallulah: You're becoming quite the curmudgeon in your old age, sir.

Victor: Oh dear.
Tallulah: It seems they've found you at last.

Tallulah:  Your Benevolent Highnesses
Victoire: Ah, at least someone has some manners around here.

Victoire: Unlike you, Brother.
Victor: My darling sisters. How I've missed you.
Emmanuelle: We've been so worried Victor.

Victoire: Thank you for the tea, Ms. Wilde. But eh....

Victoire clears her throat and gestures.

Victor: She is not going to pour for you Victoire, this isn't Zolandia.


Victoire: There, that's better. When will we meet the heir?

Victor: I will have her come join us. She doesn't live far.

Victor: Your Benevolent Highness, Princess Victoire, may I present Danielle Fear.
Victoire: Something must be done about that name. She will take the family name, will she not?  Yes, 'de Trepangier' will suit you well.

Victoire: Come, child, sit beside your auntie. No need for those formalities. It's just us.

Victoire: Well! Let us look at at you.

Victoire: I didn't expect this. You are rather like me, are you not? I was expecting you to look like her. You will do nicely. Look at that Zolandian bone structure.

Emmanuelle: Look at this glossy Chinese hair.
Dani: Japanese actually.
Emmanuelle: Yes, of course.

Victoire: Now tell me about Hanna Gudmundsdottir.

Dani: She's ruined my life. Many times over.

Dani: She has taken everything from me.

Emmanuelle: Don't be silly my dear, you will be Queen of Zolandia one day. You have a rather large and powerful family. She can do nothing to harm you again.

Victoire: We take the protection of the family name very seriously. At this moment our team is busy at work investigating your past and erasing any...unpleasantness. But Ms. Gudmundsdottir will not give up, I imagine. We must prepare for her.

Victor: I knew you'd like her!
Victoire: I take the family and the fate of Zolandia very seriously, unlike yourself. It's a wonder that you are my twin when we are as different as can be!  Danielle will return with us at once.

On the way out, Victoire whispers, "Did you tell her? About Zolandia?"
"Don't be ridiculous. Superstitious townsfolk, that's all that is."

"Don't be a fool Brother. You've seen enough in your day. How can you abandon her?"

"I will guide her, Victoire. As will you. I have vowed a year in her service. But no more. You will leave me in peace."
"Ah and what of Zolandia? What peace will we have?"

I'll miss you guys!!!

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!
