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.



  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!

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…
