Catching Fire Katniss Barbie Reroot

I thought I took a before picture of her. 
I was mistaken. 
For those of you who haven't seen this doll in her original incarnation click here. :)

A little less photo flair.

To the side....flair back on. ;)  

Up close and personal. 

And Bam! ;)  

I thought she would look good as a red head. Something about her understated facial screening made me see her as a flower child/bohemian beauty. 
She was completed a few months ago and is now on her way to her new home. 

Thank you all for your continued encouragement and support! 
It is seriously 70% of my life force right now.

I Have Issues.

Last weekend I decided it was time to purge some doll items. 
I took out the shirt drawer and proceeded to dump all the little baggies into the center of a 4ft table. 
The above photograph depicts that moment. 
I crammed a doll into the pile so you could see just how huge the shirt pile was. 


I also discovered (though I already suspected) that my dress collection runneth over. 

I might also add that I have another large drawer full of gowns and fantasy style dresses. 
They are not pictured here. -_-

There were no pictures taken of my pants/shorts/capris/skirts and jackets. 
The piles are large but not nearly as daunting as the shirts and dresses. 
You'll be thrilled to know I did get rid of a few baggies full of stuff, so the piles are a lil' more manageable.  

Moments like these really set me back a bit. 
Pulling out one random doll clothes item and looking at it like a bad ex. 
Then you gasp,
"What WAS I thinking?!"

Yeah, it was a little bit just like that. ;)  


Now for the Bonus material...

I need to list the clothes I'm parting with on the For Sale page within the next day or two. 
 On a side note I have this gal available for purchase...
*She is being sold NUDE with stand.* 

 She was part of my personal collection.
Formerly a DOTW  Philippines Barbie.
If you follow me on Flickr you might have seen her here.

While she was part of my collection I called her Mila.

She is being sold NUDE but will include stand as seen in the above picture. 

There is one flaw I would like to note. 
There is a speck  that looks like a beauty mark on her cheek. 

If you can handle her beauty mark, and would like to give her a good home...

She is $40 plus $5 Shipping in the US.
I will ship outside of the US, but exact shipping will be calculated. 

 I hope the end of Summer is treating everyone well!

Until next time...

He's One Hell of a Homme!

Recently, I took a couple commission requests from a dear friend of mine. 
(Yes my commission book will be re-opening soon, but with very limited spaces.)

She sent Handsome Devil Damon my way for some much needed hair help. 

I like that his eyes look rimmed with tears here. 
Not sure if that would be a look of fear, desperation in his need for help, or just a crappy picture?
Regardless, that is the before look of our harrowing Damon. 



The after result looked like this. He looks happier. Well as happy as a devastatingly good looking Homme with a new lease on plastic life can look.
 I'd say his quick after picture comes off a bit suggestive. 
Oops.  *-*

Now to the fashionable and fun photos of the finished Damon...

Much better. 

Oh dear....not this again. 
It appears that Damon is trying to steal my Lucy away. 
Indeed a handsome devil....
and a sneaky flirt too. 

(Psst....Lucy is wearing HautePoppet.) 

Well, I will wrap this post up by saying that you will be seeing A LOT of me around here and everywhere dolls are concerned. I've made a certain, and terrifying leap. 
More on that later. 

Until then, may this find you well and smiling friends!

(and all the rest of those wicked little plastic people who steal my money and make me smile.)

Go See Poppy Parker Re-root

For awhile now I wanted a Poppy Parker with red hair. 
I looked and waited for IT to release the perfect gal for the re-root I had in mind. 
Then, along came Poppy Parker Go See...
She was re-rooted in a hand blend of 3 different saran colors. 
I decided I liked her better on a Dynamite Girl's body, and am very pleased with her result. 

A quick before shot...

Pretty but not right for my collection. 

And one more picture for good measure. ;) 
The lovely dress is by the VERY talented Andy of HautePoppet.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun weekend!

Bittersweet Acquisitions

As many of you may know, the lovely and talented Dani  of  Vita Plastica 
decided to leave the world of 1/6 and go on to BJDs.
This led to her parting with her extensive collection of Grandville. 
(She is still selling off the rest here.)

(By the way, her BJDs and her plans for their stories, are incredible. Even if you don't collect BJDs I highly recommend you keep an eye on what she is up to.) 

I sent her a message about her local drug dealer Morgan, and the couch you see in the above picture.
I had to twist her arm to get the couch. ;) 
But in the end, I got two of my favorite things that once resided in Grandville.
Morgan is still a drug dealer on my side of the dollyverse, and she took the couch for her and her new boyfriend.

Introducing Ares, who went from this...

To this...

Re-painted and Re-rooted earlier this year, and I am just now getting around to posting him here.
I suck, just a lil.

They have quickly found much in common. 

Like their love of this couch, plaid prints, drugs, and....

Breaking in new furniture.


I'm going to be posting more and more gradually.
Working on the doll room this weekend and a Poppy re-root I cannot wait to finish and showcase here!

Oh yeah, and posting about the Homme with blue hair, plus two other lovely re-roots I completed.
Geez. I gotta get on this! ;)

Oh mini me....where are you?

I know the title is ominous, but my life did not pan out the way I thought it might since my last post. (January. Yikes.) 

I had been working on some projects with much diligence, but we got a notice that our house was under foreclosure. I should clarify we paid rent to the homeowner. Our landlord thought it would be cute to destroy an entire family unit by taking and spending the rent money (that was to go toward the mortgage) since October of 2014. Apparently the (insert expletive here) doesn't care about the lives of others. So, my step-sister and myself decided to get an apartment in town close to our jobs. 
But my mom and step-dad, brother, sister in law, and my sweet little niece are still trying to find somewhere they can call home.

So, we've been trying to make this place feel like "home".
I'm a lil' ashamed of my hole in the wall apartment.
But we all start somewhere...

Here is the living room.



Totally off topic....

I made a BJD wig for this girl over the weekend.

(Need to take more picture of her when she's finished.) 

Okay, back to the tour...

My super sexy bathroom.

And by sexy I mean small.

 Really small.

The Doll Room...sorta.

Welcome to Hell House.

So, my brilliant brain managed to forget to take a picture of the kitchen, and the other bedroom.
Truth be told it is a disaster. The doll room needs new floor or carpet and then my sister will move into that room. Which means LOTS of stuff will be leaving the apartment.  But we will cross that bridge when we get to it. Everything is kind of up in the air and we've set it up to function.

At least we have a roof over our head. For that, we're grateful. <3

A special thank you to those who purchased items from me during my time of moving.
If I could hug all of you, I would!  I do not know what we would have done without all of you.
<3 <3 <3

Okay, so to attempt a step back into normalcy here on this blog I will be sharing some pics of my latest custom dolls. Plus my mini me will be coming back as well.

They are quite grumpy from the move as shown below..

But my sweet boy Pickles is settling in comfortably.

Okay, make that comfortable with a side of evil?  O.O

To close out this entry I will leave you with a quick snap of a new blue haired devil I re-rooted.

Oh boy.
I think we're back in business...

Cat and her wee band of hooligans will be returning for some much needed mayhem. 

Stay tuned..

Hot New Man Alert! ;)

There is no reason not to jump-start the heart of this blog with some fantastic plastic!

I give you the newest heartthrob/woman eater...

His working name (for now) is Constantine.
I feel I should be ashamed and embarrassed to admit that, for all to see, but I'm not. 

He started life as a Harley-Davidson Ken Doll from the 2010 gift set.
I should have a before picture, but with all the craziness in my life I spaced that some might like to see how he began his journey. 
I will try to do better next time. 

Until then, all you will have are a couple more hunky pictures of his finished look and this little monster...

Pickles the cat. 

I'm not impressed either, but the hot new man alert must go on. 

Constantine (yes I am chuckling) was re-rooted using Fiery Shadow Saran from Retro Dolls US
I added black saran underneath and in the part line, and he was given a partial re-paint, because the blue eyes just weren't working. 

*Re-read that, and now I'm chuckling more.* 

Someone had too much caffeine today. 

Okay. Okay. 

 And to close this wacky post I must inform you that Constantine has already started tempting some of my gals into the woods. 
Poor Yuki.
He probably fed her some line of crap about what a good guy he is.
Good guys you barely know do not coax you into the woods at night with kind words. 
Yuki is new here too. 
That boy is already making messes. 

I think I will have more than enough to write about.
Don't you? 

*Hugs and love to each of you!*

From Cat and her Motley Crew of dolls!
