I took an extra day off to dress dollies for the Tea this weekend. Holy cow!
Sure is fun, though. We leave early tomorrow. Vroooooooooooooooooooooooooooom!
Mr. Kallisti just got the biggest box ever from Rinkya o_0 … it is Kaiju Kristmas at House of Blastmilk! But among the oodles of vinyl there was this (not necessarily work safe):
Just sayin’. *falls over laughing*
K, two more dollies to dress. And some errands to run. If I don’t post again… see ya’ll in LA!
Mr. Kallisti: Why’d the picture all come out so funny and washed out?
Me: Because it is July in San Francisco and it is cold and grey outside.
We spent the 2nd in the other China Town: Clement Street. But first stop was Bill’s Place on Clement & 24th. Yarm! Perfect example of the greasy spoon with yummy food. Their french fries are to die for.
And then… we went to Heroe’s Club.
I brought home one of the Mimo figures. Part figure, part doll, along similar lines to the new Volks CF and pure neemo w/o the poseability. I brought home cutie gothic lolita girl w/ parasol. I also really liked the figure store clerk pictured above. Cute!
Mr. Kallisti brought home a set of mini vinyl called the Bullmark Encyclopedia. Here’s from his flickr:
“One day, I will have a collection the likes of which no one has seen. Oh-oh-oh OOH, EEE AhAh AAHHH!!”

Paul came up this last week for his show of custom painted vinyl at Super 7 (please to buy). Went to the opening friday and had a blastorama! Lots of friends, beer & plastic monsters. I fell in love with a red glitter godzilla and Mr. Kallisti promptly smacked it on the counter and brought him home for me, along with 2347834 beasties. Yay beasties! I could decorate an entire room w/ this godzilla as the centerpiece. He’s just that fabulous.
Yes, that is Paul in the monkey suit, and Mr. Kallisti making sweet, sweet love to him.
And the Robots. Always a nice excuse to see them! Kelly & Robert were also there ♥… and an old friend Valerie (not pictured) who knows Nadja that I probably hadn’t seen since 1995 or something. We used to work together when we were babies on Haight Street in 1989 or so. She’s gorgeous as she ever was. Meh. We’re all grow’d up now.
And then we went to a noodle house around the corner. YUM! I had Imogen on the table, and the waitress was so tickled and said she was cute.
Saturday morning Paul & Melissa made it to Casa de Blastmilk, it was “fuck it all BBQ” day! The Robots, Nadja & Will, were here too. Paul had promised to cook ribs & potato salad. And boy were they good. Beer boiled compton ribs and nummy, num potato salad. He whipped it all up effortlessly.
I made the onion dip.
I, of course, neglected to take pictures this day. Meh. So I’ve stolen these from my friends. Thanks!
Butter was definately the attention whore of the day. This was her first party! She’s a bit nervous when meeting new people, so we greeted everyone at the door and stuffed their pockets full of biscuits. She really loves men, and Paul & Will got a lot of her attention and tarty antics. She was super good. Very well behaved aaaall day long.
or Christinadoll??? Looks like Oriettacat/Christina is having a reeeeally good month. Blythedoll.com revealed Gina’s new doll that she recently hinted at. And 10 to 1 Christina is the collaborative effort behind it. Squeeeeeeee!
the cat is finally out of the bag! this is the gorgeous new girl that i`m introducing this week. she is indeed a collaboration with christina/jam fancy. i`m previewing the prototypes at an event in tokyo tomorrow and will be able to offer the first girl for sale in *hopefully* a few months. thanks for looking!!
I’m serious. Just sign me up. I’m such the huge JamFancy fangirl. And no one deserves it more than Christina. I’d buy everything she sells except half the time I don’t get there in time to put my dibs in!
My bad fairy. Rawr.
Also, we’ll be at the Super7 show for Paul Kaiju tonight in the city. BE THERE OR BE… not there.
Is it 1/6th, or…? The base body is only 5,000 yen so probably. Looks like there will be five heads to choose from? Reminds me a bit of the new Azone PureNeemo 25cm figures, except more ball-jointy. Which, btw, will be available as seperate customize figures in January or February as opposed to just dressed dolls.
This Volks figure seems to be available in January… anyone know anything?
EDIT: Blookat posted the English link! Personally, I think it is really neat. And it is ball joint small vinyl! Hoping we can get some on this side of the pond eventually…
♥ Giant box of DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM winging its way from Japan from Celga!
♥ Two large packages have left the Blastmilk premises to their new owners. Buh-bye!
♥ Box of Liebchen LOVE winging its way from Fancyboots this week!
♠ Everything else M.I.A. Teehee.
♥ Started thinking of names for F16 girl. OMG.
♠ Have had PMS of doom making this week very hard to enjoy despite my true happiness. WTF!?!?
♠ Work moved to new offices which isn’t helping.
♥ OMG, Liebchen! Can’t wait. She’ll be my Christmas Fairy… and with a name like Merry Wink who would have expected less?
♥ Expecting phat raise in the new year. Woo!
♠ Snow White & Pink Poodle Momokos have been delayed til March/April. Boo.
♥ So I ordered Wonderland Annz.
Well… it would be Annz in Wonderland, wouldn’t it? They’ve lowered their price a bit, but I’ve been holding off since the Annz dolls got mixed reviews from friends I trust. The face sculpt and paint just weren’t quite up to par, although the kimonos were delightful and well executed.
But Annz in Wonderland… ah!
I also ran across new Rune dolls for preorder on Amazon.co.jp (who is shipping dollies now, zoink!). So much love for all the fairy tale inspired dolls that have been released lately. My collection of Alices has doubled, tripled, quadrupled! I think I need a display just for Alice dolls to live in. IN MY DREAMS! Like I have room… gah. I live in the tiniest wee cottage ever. If you only knew. I sell stuff because it won’t FIT!
I’m still waffling over
As I wait for my
This just in! PureNeemo from Azone. 25cm and very cute. Look at her thick leetle thighs. Looks like she’ll come as a dressed doll for 9,500 yen. And lots of Santa girls below *swoon*!
1/6th 23cm & 27cm:
Cinderella print! Eeep. I wish I could squash these on Aschen. Maybe one of the SD13’s could though…
Available for preorder from HLJ.com!
