Project Doll

I was going to give you a bio for everyone but it's really important to me to do whatever I want.

And what I want is to share this project. 

So a friend of mine was giving away a doll to the first one to ask. I HAD to have her. Black BJDs light my blood on FIYAH!  I was second. The first one fell through or something and I kinda feel like she knew this doll would have a good home with me anyway.

I was so happy when I received her. But y'all?  She is a hot mess! It's not the owner's fault. I'm not even sure if it's the artist's fault. I know it was the artist's personal doll. Was this the first draft? Folks, this doll is a real piece of shit. I'm amazed at how shitty she is. But I love her and she needs me.

Photos for your vicious judgement:


Aw, she ain't so bad, you say. You are wrong.

This ear grows directly out of her jawbone.


The ragged head cap.

Her upper lip just melts into her face.

Are those pin pricks supposed to be nostrils?

These knees are personally offensive to me.

Oh the bubbles.


The awful bubbles. And lemme just add that her joints act like they've never met and were never meant to be friends.


This hand. Not just the bubbles, but look at that pinky.

I heard the artist spray painted her. You must have really hated this girl.



 "Help me Dani, you're my only hope." I'm going to try sweetie. I don't know what I'm doing exactly but I'm gonna try! 


I'm sorry to the artist if she ever reads this but she never will. I don't even want to say what kind of doll it is because there has been great improvement.  I'm sorry to my lovely generous friend who let her come live with me. Know that I already love her and I will care for her forever.

smooches,
dani

  1. Wow, you are right, she is in very bad shape. I can't wait to see what magic you work on her, although I think this will be a long term project!

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…

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…

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…
