Ever since seeing the denim-wearing Barbie Basic with the Louboutin sculpt at doll club in March [she's the brown-haired one], I've wanted one for my own, but have had no excuse to get one because I'm not really actively in 1:6 scale any more. Read more... )

Other people had some really striking dolls at doll club today, and Breck showed me how to improve the quality of my close-ups, so here are some detailed pics.

Went to doll club today. Brought Araminthe and her doll Petula. Araminthe went over very well, especially the contrast between her frothy outfit and her snarling expression.Read more... )

Sarah gazes contemplatively out the window with her doll Precious Little. Sarah is wearing a wig that I got from Barb at doll club yesterday for just $3.00. I think Sarah looks better in dark-colored hair than in the wig she came with, a bright red one. I used the last bit of pre-sunlight light for these pictures and burned/dodged Sarah's eyes in the one with Precious Little so you can see their green.Read more... )

Last doll club for the year. Many people came, bringing their dolls and sugary snacks. There was a great variety of dolls, a few of which I captured on film....Read more... )

Just a few people [six] came to doll club today, so the meeting lasted shorter than usual. I brought Tamsin, a doll customized by Andrea and wearing a combo of dress, apron and stockings made by Andrea, sitting in a Vitra mini chair from a package from Andrea. Tamsin's multicolored hair and detailed paint job were much exclaimed over.Read more... )

At doll club, I also took pictures of Steph's Limwha Half Elf [top] and Unidoll Feanor [bottom]. I particularly like the youthful, smiley expression on Feanor's face.Read more... )

I brought Shaniqua [top] and N'Yenya [bottom] to doll club to show off their dresses by Andrea, where they were much exclaimed over.Read more... )

I went to doll club today and took some pictures of Maria and Ashley's Barbie Basics, poorly articulated Barbies in little black dresses. The variety of headmolds represents common and rare ones. Below, a sampling.Read more... )

Just a few photos from doll club. I took pictures of my new Rement pets, a hedgehog and a turtle, in the hands of Anneka and Will respectively, and the animals are in perfect scale for pets. I also snapped a picture of one of Maria's Kish Rileys, which would make a great younger character for LHF if it were more jointed and possessed of less exaggerated lip paint. Helen Kish's distinctive sculpting style can be seen in the Rileys as well as in my American Girl Girls of Many Lands dolls, Qingting and Maggie.Read more... )

I went to doll club today and got American Kitchen #4 Baby Goods and #9 Merry Christmas. Geordie was particularly interested in the Merry Christmas bear, since pink is her favorite color. Even though she is mentally around 8, Submit was very amused with the pull toy ducky. Read more... )

I also took some pictures of Kira's latest, a Fairyland Minifee Shiwoo girl. Fairyland dolls are so cute and tempting, but I have neither the money nor the character for another small kidsy Junior's age.

Rement's a brand name for small, plastic, realistically colored, finely molded, hand-painted models of food, household goods, animals and other related stuff, made by a Japanese company called Rement. The stuff is ~1:6, usually a bit smaller, so it works well with fashion dolls and 12" action figs, a.k.a. the cast of LHF. It is made in themed sets, like "Princess Tea Party," "What's For Dinner?,""Kawaii Kitchen," etc. Rement is the company name, and the stuff goes by Puchi Petites in the US, but most people I know call the models Rements. Because of their high levels of both quality and cuteness, Rements cause masturbation mass evacuation of wallets non-stop high-pitched squealing to those who are interested in these things.Just talking about Rements with links to cute pictures )

I finally went to doll club today with Will and Sardonix. Will's clothes reached a new sartorial nadir of horrible fabulousness; I never knew I could create such staggering amounts of fashion-related weirdness with a limited number of items. He also got a new wig from Volks SD Kun, a brownish, ex-blond long straight cut. For once in her life, Sardonix kept quiet and didn't cause any trouble, probably because she was too busy stabbing things with her Vengeance Unicorn.

At the Burlington Doll Club meet today, I enjoyed seeing members that I hadn't greeted in a while. I showed off my new Sabik, and Rosa Palomino's YoSD Ann was interested in his hat.

I got a chance at the Burlington Doll Club meet to compare Jareth to a default Haund [with open eyes]. He belongs to either catzy02 or SpiffyMuffins on DOA [not sure -- they live in the same apartment along with DrNero and they have 13 dolls among them].

As you can see, the default has a shorter, fuller face, with a larger mouth, wider eyes and a much more protuberant nose. When I compare default Haunds to Jareth, I am startled by the difference between my doll as he was originally and as he is now. Armeleia really changed him a lot! She added some length to his chin and a lot to his cheekbones. She also drastically reduced his nose. Overall, when I see a regular Haund, I think he looks young, lost and sad. When I look at Jareth, I see someone sharp, tired, older and thoughtful. Pictures below.

After an absence of several months [too long!], I finally returned to the Burlington Doll Club meeting, bearing Jareth, Frank and new, improved Jennifer. People greeted my dolls with happy exclamations. [Me they were less excited about. :p] I showed off Frank's outfit, which everyone marveled at and envied. Frank, as usual, showed off himself. Here are some shots of him just wearing a Dollmore leather jacket, Haund size. He's naked below the waist, but you don't see that. He really likes leather...I should get him a leather jacket.

Yesterday Boston-area doll dorks and I converged on a New England Winter Wonderland convention for a small meet-up. After hanging around in the dealer's room and droooooooooooooling for a few hours, we repaired to our own meeting area...  Before we did that, though, some of us ventured to Newbury Street in search of food. On the way back from Greek cuisine, Frank perpetrated lewd acts on the contents of a lawn ornament display. :p

Yesterday the Burlington Doll Club held its summer meeting at Ivy's house. Amidst pizza, chips and salsa, we heated up her living room with insane giggles and clothing swaps, an excavation of the "free box" and, of course, general adulation of everyone's dolls...particularly Frank.  Frank made his first major public appearance in his final form yesterday. As popular as he was in Ptown, Frank vamped for everyone's cameras, enjoying the feeling of many hands across his body.  See beautiful dolls and silly comments below.

The usual band of geeks suspects took over the usual conference room at the Burlington Public Library this afternoon to swap doll parts, stories and photos. Jennifer started off grumpy because she was wearing the aforementioned frilly dress with cherries, but Ivy had a box o' free shit from where she found a much more pleasing outfit, modeled below. Other loot I nabbed: a fuzzy pink sweater, a knitted shawl and a troll with pink hair to confiscate for Jennifer...not to mention the 1:3 bottle of Beck beer, this last from Barb!

Jennifer hung out with Jamie's OrientDoll Tae, Quaid, who is 40 cm to her 27. He's very realistically proportioned, and I can't wait to see his female counterpart! She also posed with Breck's Souldoll Kimmy, Puck, who is shorter and slenderer than she is. I like the 1:6 Souldoll BJD bodies better than Soom's; Souldoll's features are meatier and more realistic.

An informal survey on the way back to the T revealed that I'm not the only one who feels completely wiped out after meets. Steph, Jamie, Sam and Meg said that they all wanted to go to sleep afterward, despite the fact that we always part ways before dinner. Steph put it best when she said, "It's like you've been mainlining fun for 4 hours. Then you go home and can't stand any more fun!" Read more... )

Mara [rdwayneright] hosted a BJD meet at her swank Brockton pad this afternoon. We took over the meeting room at her condo with our dolls [about 11 owners, 2 or 3 dolls a piece and a few SOs = a lot of fun] and our potluck luncheon. Then we sat around for five hours to make pornographic jokes while swapping doll clothes and wigs and posing them in [compromising] situations. After that, we were all exhausted because playing with dolls sucks up your energy, but in that good way. :p Read more... )

At today's Burlington doll club, I brought a sampling of my 1:6 smorgasbord and held a picnic for Jennifer and Rosa's Elfdolls. [Of course, none of the cute picnic ended up in my final selection of photos, since I'm very picky about which ones I post.] The Elfdoll with the larger eyes is Dodo. The one with the red hair is Adel. I don't know what Rosa named them, but I got some size comparison shots of them with Jennifer and with Jareth. I also tried on at least 10 wigs on Jennifer. Which ones do you think flatter her? Read more... )

At yesterday's Burlington doll meet, Jareth proudly showed off his snazzy cape. Jamie [DrNero] saw how voluminous it was and wondered how many other dolls you could hide under here. This silly photo was the result. No dolls were corrupted in the shooting of this photo, although everyone seemed a bit traumatized afterward by the...wrongness of it. We've got two Dollmore 40cms under there ["His hand is bigger than my head" = Ujee, "I'm closing my eyes" = unknown], a Volks Toppi ["Mister..."] and a CP unknown ["I'm calling"]. :pRead more... )

Last night I met up with some Boston metro BJD fans {Steph, Mara, Lauren [CurlyKitty on DOA], Kira [Sniffles], Jamie [DrNero]} at New Ginza, a Japanese restaurant in Watertown. A small army of dolls came along too, of course, fascinating the wait staff ["Is that a hobby? Do you make that?"]. We filled the small restaurant with sarcasm, silly jokes and squeals of delight -- in short, what you'd usually expect from a doll meet. Frank, my BJD emissary this time [borrowing Jareth's body], contributed his own share of humor, at the expense of my yummy fried ice cream. See below. Read more... )

Fun at yesterday’s Burlington doll club meeting, in which my little Goblin King proves his complete lack of social graces and Marcus [Doll More Ujee, owned by Jamie, aka DrNero on DOA] proves his utter cuteness and artistic talents. Check it out below the cut. Read more... )

Well, I took Lilith to the Burlington doll club meeting yesterday, where she felt out of place among 1:4 fashion dolls and a slew of BJDs. However, I felt right at home, admiring and joking about everyone's dolls and ogling the first Haund I've ever seen. You can see him below [his name is Grimm], owned by Steph on DOA. Lishe, who is owned by Ivy [Ivy4Mdvanii on DOA], parked herself in his lap, incidentally showing off where Sardonix' boots went to. [Lishe's T-shirt, hilariously enough, says I'M NOT A F***ING BARBIE!] The chair is from Doll Market, where I am going to get me some cheap doll furniture one of these days.

On my way to a doll club meeting at the Burlington [Massachusetts, not Vermont, unfortunately] doll club meeting yesterday, I took along 1:6er Lilith. While I waited in the rainy train station at Alewife for the 350 bus, she enjoyed lounging around and showing off her bust. More below the cut.
