Ugh whatever. Just, here!

Folks, lemme tell you, I am so tired of my little big project. The big stuff was easy (spray painting and such). That was over weeks and weeks ago. It's been the small stuff. And I'm still nowhere near done but I'll do the rest in Phase Two (Bailey and Remi's wedding). I miss my dolls so hard. I have two new beauties I haven't even taken shots of. I have pretty new clothes that just sit around, unworn, unappreciated, unphotographed. Stories untold! All for this shizz.

Before:


And today, Grandville's food truck, Enchanted Eats!




Lights!

"Lavita Terrell here for Channel One News, Grandville. I'm here with Mistress Ava Stronghold in front her food truck, Enchanted Eats!"

"Mistress Ava, food trucks are so last week. Why bother? What makes Enchanted Eats different?"

"I've got to disagree Lavita. Food trucks have been around as long as humans have had markets. They're just taking a new form. I think it encourages a sense of community. Enchanted Eats uses all local ingredients which are blessed by a local coven. All produce is specifically harvested with intention and all chosen for their correspondences to love, prosperity, protection...even lust!"

"Well that certainly is different. Come on down to Grandville Park today to try some of Mistress Ava's Enchanted Eats. Back to you, Jim."


Well, lemme show you around:

Some of the delicious treats served:

The sandwich prep area and sink. I'll be adding shelves to this wall and trying to scuff up the silver paper more.

I think the flat top grill gunked up nicely. Must do more of that on the wall above the fryer. There will be lots of witchy doodads on the wall. Skull tiles, tiny broom that I haven't made yet.

[I forgot to take a pic of this so I got this before I put everything way. I made fry baskets with Rement dish racks and pot holder thingies. I don't know what half the shizz is in my Rement stash. Fries will go in there at some point I suppose.]

This is where orders are taken.

And this is where you pick up the order and pay. Might as well grab a doughnut.

Another view.

The staff at Enchanted Eats:
Maura (in argyle):  Customer Service
Valentina: Head Chef
Zeke: Sous Chef
Mistress Ava Stronghold: Figurehead, Money

Rai has a new rich older boyfriend, Hunter. You can't keep a good Brazilian down.
Aragorn is check out the options. Cheri informs him she is not on the menu.
Sooki can't believe he's just standing there and not noticing her!  Raven agrees. Mind boggling.

My favorite picture and I'm fairly sure it was an accident.

Morgan has ordered The Maiden. It's basically a gyro.

I see a little butt crack!

Bits and pieces will be added but my workspace (this) needs some serious help. Time to rearrange Grandville again!

Back soon!

smooches,
dani

    1. Thanks Sergio! Figuring out a logo frustrated me for about 3 weeks! In the end, I used an embroidery pattern I found on Google images

    1. Thanks D7ana. Well it WAS fun. It's not the project that's a drag but the fact that I only have 1.5-2 hours per day to work on it!

  9. That is so cool! What a great idea to make a food truck. My littler berg isn't very fancy so we don't have food trucks here, just hotdog carts on the corner, lol. It was neat to see inside a toy one.

  11. Barbie pink camper who? Not when you can have a fabulous food truck by Dani! Man, I'm thinking of shipping my dolls off for a visit of Grandville. Your dolly town has really developed into the place to be. I'm really looking forward to seeing it come full circle. Great work, Dani!

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
