Hi Doll Peeps!

I've missed you. Getting into bjd's is like being the transfer kid at school. You're totally clueless and hoping everyone will like you. It's been good so far. There is definitely some drama in this world but I suppose every hobby is that way.

So, by a stroke of luck, the doll I had decided on in the last post came up for sale on Facebook for super cheap and with a ton of clothes. So I took the plunge. And I love her. I don't feel like I exactly know her yet but we've been having a  good time getting to know each other (her having me buy her things).

Meet Sunnie Heartlove, a 60cm Dream of Doll (Dream of Teen) E-An in their teen sized SD (60 cm). She's a proper English schoolgirl who loves to read but lately, is giving me some creepy vibes like maybe she likes studying poisons? I think I'm going to bond with her after all. (This isn't her usual style. She's just humoring me.)



I've made a couple of youtube videos:




And:




I like the youtube community in the bjd world. You feel like you really know someone when you look at them speak (rather than read their words) but I prefer the anonymity of the written word. I didn't know how much I missed it.

So I'm back. And I'm selling ALL my Barbie stuff. You'll see some links on the right frame with doll sales items. There isn't anything there right now but I have loads of photos taken, I just have to upload and note the prices. I'll try to get that done this weekend.

Anyway my loves, I miss you! If you can put up with looking at pics and projects bigger dolls, stick with me kids! I have some big plans for my next girl (she'll be here in July):

This goddess:
Smooches dollfaces!

  1. I'm not into bjds, but I see their appeal. Sunnie Heartlove is cute. The shorter hair gives her a punky, gamine look.

    1. Thanks D7ana. I really wasn't either. At all. In fact, I'm not crazy about many of them. I'm not a fan of anime or manga, so I don't get that connection. But I wanted something bigger and I'm really satisfied so far. But I still think about getting an FR 16 or similar. Maybe one day!

  2. I've only discovered your blog through Doll Affinity and wanted to say, Welcome to the world of BJDs. I've been collecting them for a while and only recently got into Fashion Royalty and Pullips so I went the other way!

    Dream of Doll have some really gorgeous dolls. I adore their Shall sculpt quite a bit but don't own her. How are you finding the size upgrade?

    Looking forward to seeing what you do with The Goddess. She looks amazing.

    1. Thanks AlasseCarnesir! I'm really enjoying the size upgrade. I have an MSD doll but I'm not enjoying her as much. It is causing the same issues I have with Barbies. Having too much stuff and not using it!

  3. I'm only a month late. So good to see you happy with your new hobby. I love the BJDs, too. I have no desire to own any, but I enjoy learning about them. It was so nice to see your girls again.

    1. Hi Vanessa! Yes, they are certainly different and interesting! I still have a handful of Barbie/Integrity. Can't totally let go of my little friends! But this is a fun new adventure!

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
