Versatile Blogger Award!



Wow, I don't think I've ever been awarded anything for this blog. And I've had two nominations in the last month. Feels pretty good to be liked for doing what I love.

So first of all, thank you Sergio Alabiso!

And thank you to D7ana!

Both of you have been huge supporters and big time commenters even though I am a slacker and never comment on anything. I really appreciate the love.

You all can click on their names to link to their respective blogs. And view the VBA rules here: http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/vba-rules/

15 is pretty small number to nominate so if I leave you out, I apologize.

Hmm, now seven things about myself? This is always tough.


  • I'm always cranky but I'm also always smiling.
  • I always wanted to decorate store windows. I think this is why I love doll work so much.
  • I'm a mother of two girls under five that seem to have inherited aspects of my doll love. (Crafting and plotlines)
  • My family is Haitian and my husband's family is Puerto Rican. We call our child "Haitericans," which is perfect because we're such haters.
  • My husband is also a toy collector as well as a DJ (which makes him a record, cd and mp3 collector.) He also collects comic books. Sigh. 
  • I have basically had the same hairdo since I was 12. But I always wanted purple hair. One day, my love, one day.
  • I believe this bit to be true for most of us: You know how they say in dreams, every person is actually you? I believe this is true with our dolls. And those that are not were close friends or that cool girl in high school that I wanted to be like. 


Okay so a couple of those weren't about me but like my dolls, my family is me. Now if only they would just hush up and let me pose them in little outfits.

Thanks again for the nomination!

smooches,
dani

    Once, I thought that your blog was about expensive doll furniture - so glad to have found that not true. Don't know how I came to that conclusion. Never been so glad to have been so wrong. Thanks for posting and sharing your world - 1:6 and 1:1 with us ;-)

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 vitaplastica.com 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!

smooches,
dani
