Three upcoming meets! [17 Aug 2010|07:37pm]

[ mood | busy ]

Alrighty!  We have three meets coming up.  One has the date set already and two are still up for vote.  All can be found on Den of Angels and I will post the link with them.

First up!  We have a meet at Michelangelo Park in San Francisco on Sunday August 29th.  Michelangelo Park is located near the curviest street in the world, Lombard Street!  This will be a potluck meet, so bring some goodies and enjoy what everyone else brings!

Next!  There will be a meet at Let's Cupcake in Newark in September.  The date hasn't been selected yet and space is limited, so hurry on over to reserve your spot and cast your vote!

Last but not least!  We will also be having our Annual September meet at Sigmund Stern Grove in San Francisco.  We still need to select the date for that one too!  There will be a pot luck and also a Gift Exchange or a White Elephant Gift Exchange (with a limit of $25 for each gift).

Also, I'm going to continue to be a shameless plug whore!  If you're on Facebook, please join the Resin SF group!  I try to keep the group as up to date as possible and sometimes post meet photos there. :3

Hello Everyone!! [21 May 2009|07:29am]

[ mood | geeky ]

I've been a watcher of this community for a while and I finally decided to join. =3
Here's some info about my girl Evette

Name: Evette Gabriella  Devereux
Age: 20
Favorite things:  my gibson, modeling, rockabilly -psychobilly-horrorbilly music, Elvis, tattoos, hot rods, ma little bro
Short biography:  I'd have to say I had a pretty normal childhood, though my parents were a little over protective and sheltering.  So as you can guess as soon as I was old enough I was out the door. XD  I'm attending school part time and working part time too.  A little less than a year ago my little brother came to move in with me while our parents decided to travel around the world.  He's a cute little guy...but real quiet still.
What did you think of your owner at your first meeting?: she looked nice, a bit odd running around in all those frilly clothes though. ^^;
How do you feel about yourself?:  Well, I'd have to say I'm pretty self confident.  Not much about bragging though...so thats all you get to know. XD
What do you like to do?:  I love playing my guitar, going to the beach (watching the surfers), reading magazines, getting tattooed, hanging out with my little bro, and I'm trying to break into modeling
What is your clothing style?:  Thats a little tough, normally I just wear what pretty comfortable, but I do wear a lot of more psychobilly styled clothing...unless my owner can bribe me into a frilly outfit...and she really has to bribe me.

Bobobie colors? [08 Jan 2009|10:23am]

I was looking to buy a new doll and noted that I love the Bobobie Ju, but wanting to see if a non-natural skinned doll would add to my collection, I'm muchly interested in seeing if she would look good in purple, pink, green, or blue.

Problem is, Bobobie has no pictures of these.

So I was wondering, if anybody here has a larger Bobobie in one of these shades, could you share pics? Or if anybody knows where to get them. Ideally I'd like to see Ju in these shades, but anything bigger than the teenys would be awesome.

Thanks a ton!

New Girl on the Block [08 Oct 2008|12:21pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

Hi! My name's Boots, and though I don't yet live in the Bay area I'll be moving out there soon enough. I'm really excited about being someplace that seems to be teeming with Doll people/conferences, I've only ever been to one doll-related function (Last summer's Dollectable, which was an amazing experience which I hope to repeat in the future) but I really love talking to other people about dolls, doll clothing, photostories, ect.

I'm also a budding seamstress. I'm not great yet (only know a few basic patterns), so if anybody had tips/tricks/patterns, or knew where to get them, I'd much appreciate.

My doll collection began with a Namu Trunk named Jose, who was sent to me by a doll friend of mine about two years ago. I got addicted, and now have main dolls. I have to say I really like Bobobie dolls, being unable to afford Elfdoll or others of that price range, but someday (when I'm no longer a poor student) I hope to own a K Elfdoll.

Anyway, that's all I can think of for now. I really can't wait to get up there and attend all of the meetings/conferences I've been reading about. If anybody wants to chat about dolls, I'm always around on AIM or on livejournal.

Oh! Before I forget, I just recently purchased a female white 60cm Bobobie body. I don't know which head I want to save for, though, so I'm really, really open to any suggestions, observations, warnings... :P

Ok, I'm done, for real. G'day, all!

Start of a new hobby. [12 Aug 2008|02:36am]


I'm John.

This will be my first post so I'll make it an interesting one.

My wife is currently bewildered and weeping of the inevitable hit to our bank account.

I've always wanted to have a daughter... to spoil rotten.

Unfortunately I cannot afford to clothe, feed, or house a child as of yet...(soon though) But, I do currently have a number of hobbies I indulge. Most of which involve me painting little pewter figures and spending well into the thousands of dollars on something that could simply be called "playing with metal dollies"... I can't call it that in front of the guys... it seems to remove all masculinity from the "war gaming" fandom and I'm tired of being shunned.

Anywho... back to my nonexistent daughter.

I missed the first Dollectable convention in the area which saddened me as not only a RealLifeComics reader but as a hobbyist in general. The second Dollectable slipped by without me even knowing there WAS going to be a second Dollectable. (side note: is there some sort of mailing list for Dollectable?) That realization, three days ago, sparked a furious web search for BJD info. Aside from some interesting and sometimes disturbing youtube vids and a few poorly designed websites that sorta seem to be selling dolls of every style, I'm standing at a loss in a sea of hollow limbs and empty eye sockets.

I feel like one of those mom's who walks into a game store for the first time trying to buy her son some Yugioh! cards; Somewhat confused at the concept, shocked by the prices, and dumbstruck by the sheer quantity.

There must be an easier way of going about this.

So I reach out to you all, my fellow Bay Area residents for some help.

Where do I start?

I was planning on purchasing in at about $250 starting... I'm paying off loans and cars and what not so a simple bare figure will have to do for now... unless someone knows of a good starter kit or what not.

I'm thinking the 22" range might be too big for me...simply for the price range, but then again... I'm not completely shut off.

heres a pic I saw on the european BJD LJ com thats pretty much along the lines I'm hoping to find CLICK

I'm 100% confident in my ability to work a face up in my own time. I just need recommendations on where to buy and what to buy.

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you in advance!
