Thinking about the pretty Soom Breccia head that I sort of want, I ask myself what I would do with her. Of course she’d get a body. I’m sure she would dress up in the cheap, tacky remnants of my 1:3 wardrobe. It’s entirely possible that I would give her some sort of sloppy custom faceup that would further decrease her value, not to mention pink hair. And then…
Then what? Then she would go on the “big dollies” shelf along with Sardonix and Junebug, and she would sit there, making friends with them and quietly yellowing. She would come out for doll meets, where the audience would ooh and aah over her and take photos, and I’m sure she’d have televised chats with Sardonix and Junebug occasionally, but I don’t think I’d take lots of pictures of her or play with her a lot. Certainly not as frequently as I play with my 1:6ers.
I’d like a big doll with pink hair. None of my past BJDs had the appropriate type of pink hair. Zephque had a pale pink wig with double buns, but it wasn’t pink enough. My Soom Uyoo version of Jennifer had a wig of pink yarn for a while that looked good, but too much like Anneka’s hair. My Soom Sabik Will had a bright pink fur wig of the appropriate color, but it didn’t have double ponytails, and he was too big for me anyway…
I think I would get a Volks Dollfie Dream body for the putative Breccia head. It’s nice and light and sexy and relatively poseable. It’s also kinda cheap. The only problem is that Dollfie Dreams stain really easily. I’d have to make sure that all her clothes were lined, and nothing denim and/or black for her! That’s easy…I already have the an42 pink and orange paisley dress that I’d want her to wear…and the stripey black and white socks.
She would be such a pretty doll!
I think I need a camera with a really good zoom lens, or I need a good zoom lens to put on my current camera.

…a Soom Breccia head. Owner pictures show her much more full of character and smirks and less vapid than the promo pics.
Yeah…like I need any more big dolls.
If there’s one thing that the ABJD world lacks, it’s truly 1:6 mature male BJDs, i.e. with the size and proportions of GI Joes. 1:6 mature female BJDs exist in quantity, from Soom’s Mini Gems to DollMore’s FMDs to SoulDoll’s Soul-Littles, but they have no male counterparts. SoulDoll at one time did make a male Soul-Little, Kimmy, but he has gone out of print.
Now, much to the joy of fans of 1:6 BJDs, a new 1:6 male doll has appeared on the horizon. Lumedoll will be making Koit, 30cm of goodness, perfectly sized to go along with all those 1:6 resin women!
After quickly glancing at Koit, I really like him. The seriousness of his mouth and the shape of his eyes reminds me favorably of Chow. Koit would also be the perfect mold for the special collections assistant of my Intellectum project, though nothing with probably come of said project.
I hope that Koit remains in print for a long time so that those who wish to have 1:6 resin guys can do so. Actually, I would really like for Koit to inspire Soom, DollMore and SoulDoll to make 1:6 resin dudes of their own so that the possibilities for 1:6 people could be even greater than those supplied by plastic forms.
In tribute to my grandmother, who died in July, I’m redoing all of season 2 [in which Anneka’s grandmother dies] with dolls, rather than digital renders. Here’s the first episode, in which Anneka and Will show off a bit of their huge collection of kinky sex toys.
I got the genius, bad, tempting idea this afternoon that Bobobie Charisma looks like Jareth. And there’s a Bobobie Charisma human head on the DOA Marketplace right now for $30.00. Of course, it’s slate-blue, which Jareth most emphatically ain’t, but that’s why people who have airbrushes who can be hired to recolor a head were invented.
To quote Hoggle from Labyrinth, "Damn you, Jareth! And damn me too!"
Like I need more Jareths in my life…especially after I already got rid of a BJD one [but it didn’t really look like him anyway].
EDIT: Well, shit. I see that Bobobie is on my list of cheating doll cos.
…But Charisma has a smirk...and a cheap price tag.
Did I mention the smirk? And the seductive androgyny? And the face that looks older than most preternaturally young-faced BJDs?
How morally compromised am I, considering the abandonment of my principles for a cheap smirk?
Now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, maybe I can go to bed.
Anneka models more Moxie Teens fashions, all of which fit CGs beautifully. The first is marketed as a night gown, but it works very well as a dress and bolero for action figs. The second outfit is made of Melrose’s top and Bijou’s pants. Bijou’s pants actually go up to Anneka’s waist and close in the back, making a very effective pair of skinny jeans! I bought all four Moxie Teens and the night gown set at full price, but I am very pleased with the results. Now I have to figure out what to do with four naked Moxie Teens on my desk….

This is The Morning After, by WooThemes. What do you think? Is it readable? Clear? Inviting? None of the above? Any thoughts would be helpful.
I feel somewhat guilty about having 17 extra 1:6 dolls hanging around. By “extra,” I mean that they have no point. I keep them because I like them, not because they play any part in my major dolly project, LHF.

An informal timeline of recent doll developments shows a plethora of increasingly articulated fashion or playline dolls available in your average department store or toy store.

In which shoes are lusted after.
I ordered Moxie Teens Melrose and Bijou [I already cannibalized Tristen and Arizona for their clothes], along with a pajamas set that looks like a nice lightweight summer dress. Melrose and Bijou shall donate their clothes to my 1:6ers, and I shall be up more 1:6 outfits at an exorbitant price! I’m really looking forward to Bijou’s transparent pink over-blouse and the jeans [over some long shirts, of course, for I hear they are too short-waisted otherwise]. Since I have a lot of extra money, compared to when I lived at my previous apartment, I can afford to invest in my dollies, hurrah!

Anneka and Will wear clothes from Moxie Teens. Will’s skirt and scarf are Moxie Teens, as are Anneka’s shirt and skirt. Fabulous?!Continue reading Anneka, Will and the Moxie Teens
I got my pink-headed Harumika today and promptly named her Bering Lusk. She’s quite imperious [hence the quote from David Bowie’s Within You, from Labyrinth], even with her limited articulation. However, she willingly donned an an42 creation made for a larger doll and allowed herself to be shot in the dying sun.Continue reading “How you turn my world, you precious thing”: Bering Lusk, the Harumika mannequin

In which we look in on Velvette’s designing skills.
I got a MIB AJ Mcleod recently. I just took off her default outfit and dressed her in an an42 dress, with a hat from someplace and Shoezies fuzzy cowskin boots! In these pictures, she is showing off some new cosmetics erasers that Val gave me, a little big for 1:6, but still workable.Continue reading My new AJ
Ordered today from Amazon! Soon to be mine! I love her headsculpt and elegant hands. I may paint her head and rebody it…not sure.
