The Vinyls Hold Auditions

It's been a while since you've seen the Vinyls. They were supposed to perform at the Grandville Summer Festival but I got lazy.

The Vinyls did perform in Grandville park that one time:

Twilight Edward was the lead singer but his paleness has limited my body options and that makeup I put on him to darken him up will not hold up under the new camera, so he's out. Still, seedy, dangerous Grandville needs its band.

So they held auditions for a few Grandvillians who were interested. First up, Marie.

She and Zeke had great guitar chemistry.

They never knew Blake had such a good singing voice. He brought a real trip hop element to their ensemble.

His singing sounds like he's reciting a poem.

And then came Raj Nirvana, belting it out and just feelin' it, man.

The Vinyls felt really embarrassed for him.

"I really like Marie," Aragorn urges.
Bailey protests, "You just want to bone her."
"Well duh."

"Marie and I did have a good vibe," Zeke adds. "And having two chicks in the band would be cool. But I liked Blake a lot too. And we are less likely to try to have sex with him."

"Well, you might try, Bailey."
"Please. Have you seen my man? 'Why go out for hamburgers when you have steak at home?'"

Hmm, who will it be? I guess it's safe to say it will not be Raj Nirvana. He'll have to form his own cheese-ball band.

Submit your opinions below and the Vinyls shall take them all under consideration.



  1. I like Blake because he adds another dimension to the group. Plus, I like the way Bailey looks at him. :-)

    1. Thanks Grandmommy. Oh Bailey better be on her best behavior!

  2. I vote for Blake too, but probably only because I like his hair the most.

  3. Marie looks more like a "feature" singer, go with Blake.

  4. I also vote for Blake. It is kinda cool having Bailey as the only female in the band.

  5. I vote for Blake too. Can't wait to see Raj Nirvana band

    1. I might have it be an ongoing joke. It will be like this:

  6. Great pictures. I can't wait to see the band do their thing. I'm sure whoever they pick will be great.

  7. Blake is giving me that Living Colour "Cult of Personality" vibe which I loooove! Marie is a nice fit too and Raj is just nice to look at. Hmm...I'm gonna say....Blake. Although, Marie would still fit and sing back up and play base. That'd be one hot looking band. :-)

    1. Maybe Marie and Raj will combine forces, who knows?

    2. Marie and Raj would seem like a clash of opposites, lol. I could see her crashing her guitar over his head. See him crying cause she hurt his feelings ...

    3. You're very perceptive D7ana. I think Marie is more interested in the challenge of taking away the boyfriend of a supermodel...

  8. I vote for Blake. I think he's cool looking. Love his hair! :-)

    1. Thanks Cindi. I like him too. He doesn't get enough work.

  9. My Edward is on Acheron body, color fits perfectly, so he is just a very pale guy, haha.
    It's sad that such a handsome vocalist as Edward will leave, even more pity that the new one won't be Raj Nirvana, I would vote just for him :P

    1. Thanks Jewel Snake, that's good to know. I saw a doll friend used maybe a Kyu body for Emmett but I guess I don't love poor Eddie enough.

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!
