Here is a dress that I made for KiKi. Malik likes African inspired style outfits. He borrowed this dress/shirt to wear!
Who do you think wore it better?
I want to do more dioramas/stories. What I realized is that I need more props, backdrops and items that give detail to dioramas because I have tons of stories The first thing I do when looking at a story is look at the background the clothes and the little details in the post! I feel these things give the dioramas/stories texture and interest! I sometimes find things that I didn’t know were available 1/6 scale! Then I am on the hunt for those items.
I often take a plain picture while planning out my diorama to see what it looks like
and what I need to add to give it that texture that I want and love.
I have been blogging long enough to up my game on dioramas
and other things doll related. I am taking this time to also organize my 1/6 items.
I can’t tell you how many times I want to do a post and can’t find the items
I want to use. So I will organize and remember to put things
back after I am done too!
* I am still waiting for my AA Signature Looks male to arrive.* One of my plain shots! Hiroshi Takada
One of my plain shots! Hiroshi Takada
One of my favorite male characters is Hiroshi Takada. His character and storyline is well developed in my mind! If he is to be ready for my next series of post for Chinese New Year, he is going to need a dojo!
So here is a simple post of a story as I take some test shot of the layout of the dojo. Hiroshi is joined by a few others of my favorite characters Thomas J. and Chet Chang.
Hiroshi gives martial arts instruction at his dojo! He has be working with Chet as one of his private students.
Chet: Good morning Sensei!
Chet: Good morning Sensei!
Chet: I have been practicing my forms.
Hiroshi: You are been working hard and it shows.
You still need to do some running to build up your wind! You need to spar with a partner.
Chet: I have been doing sparring with you!
Hiroshi: No, I have been instructing and correcting your form! I will be better able to do this if I can
observe you with a partner...an opponent.
Thomas J. Woo
Chet, meet Thomas J. He is also a student of mine.
I think having you two spar together will be good for both of you!
I am trying to decide if I will want the walls black and a light floor. I have seen wooden floors but not sure if that is what I want. I want to add some art work, posters and a trophy case to the scene. I like the idea that My Froggy Stuff had of the free standing punching bag. I have my shampoo bottle ready. I am also thinking about a mirrored wall. I want to be able to have more than one thing going on in the dojo at the same time. So one of the walls will fold out for more space.

I added the Mattel BMR 1959 dolls to my collection finally! I thought I would purchase them because I need body donors but one guys and the girl did catch my eye!
First up...let's call him green hair! There doesn't appear to be a name for the individual dolls, so I giving them my own names. I got two of this guy as body donors.
I have seen him styled on FB and IG and people seem to love his face and fashions but not me!
Fashionista Ken #114 and #10 Classic Cool received the bodies
