la Salon de Poupées




The loverly Fifi Mahony in the outfit by Imai I got from Aimee. Eeeeeee! And this wig. Volks W-02 in BLACK. I’d been trying to get it for AGES. Such gorgeous texture, heavy and swingy. Lurve it muchly.
But wait! What is this? Mr. Kallisti rides again! [queue Bonanza theme]
It’s a large BJD photo stage! Collapsible (if a bit heavy), stores flat, and tres easy for scene changes!



It is just a large piece of plywood. A bit on the heavy side because we happened to have a large piece of thick plywood on hand. It has a lip around the backend to keep the walls from sliding off the back. The back L shaped wall is hinged at the corner, and then upholstered with cream colored felt. The bottom is covered with dark brown felt to keep it from scratching the 1925 Victrola Granada Phonograph the whole contraption is resting on. And the floor is a thin piece of black board covered with checkered shelf paper. This can be changed at will. The back is then covered with random fabric, in this case muslin on the back wall and mauve velvet on the side. The set dressings are hung on push pins with the plastic bit ripped off so the fabric can be changed and stuff rehung with ease. It all folds up and tucks behind a large desk, or can stay out as a permanent doll room. Which it is likely to in this case.
I married a genius. And a very understanding man.

  1. OMG Your sooo freaking lucky! I should make one too… but my storage is so stuffed full of crap already… =P

  2. That’s one badass rig. I gave the Mr. some pointers while building it. He gave me the stank eye while putting his hands on his hips. I beat a hasty retreat. I wish I had room for a stage, for my meat pictures. YEAH !!!
