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.

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…
