Recent Doll Loots and Doll Show 36

Not every parent will accept or let alone become supportive for their son’s otaku hobby especially when it comes to doll but I’m glad mine were those lucky few who does. One of the latest doll acquisition is this miniature 1/3 scale  blue and white porcelain tea set given to me by my good mother who is into vintage dish collecting, glass beads crafting and etc. This was one of her collection and heard this set was made by a famous company…or something. It’s not as flashy as the miniature tea set I bought at Volks Yokohama for 3000 yen but displays a mature look and feels genuine in a way. Another new item you ‘ll see is the customized DD-sized chair I bought at Doll Show 36 last Saturday for 12000 yen. The chair has no arm rest (which allows my girl to sit with their sword on their waists), comes with a tall decorative back with red cushion and was available in very limited quantity (x2). Both items were a pretty lucky find and think I might restart making my own photobooth :3 I’ve snapped a few pictures at Doll Show so I’ll include that in the latter half of the post.

(最近入手したドール小物やドールショウ36のプチレビューです。ミニチュアティーセットはアンティーク皿集めが趣味の母から頂いた物で、ソラが座っている椅子はディーラーから買い取った特注の大型チェア。ドルショ自体は一時間ぐらいしか居られませんでしたが、自分等の有料卓と近隣の卓の写真は少しばかり撮れたので記事の後半に貼っておきます。)

Samurai School Girl Sora

Originally, I was going to continue with Sora in her Miko outfit and get creative with it – making her pose with bows and arrows or doing some random ecchi poses – but quickly lost interest after stumbling across this beautiful figure by Max Factory. The combination of sailor uniform and a Japanese sword is very orthodox but the addition of gauntlet and belts going around her torso made it an interesting subject for the next cosplay project. The character has many names such as “Samurai”, “Samurai-ko” or “Katanako” and comes from a small niche game called “7th Dragon 2020” where she and the special organization “Murakumo” fights dragon in Tokyo. I’ve yet to play this game and have very little reference but figured I can somehow render her outfit utilizing the Volk’s Sailor Uniform set and a couple of things I had lying around the house. Had tons of belts, straps and strings leftover from the military outfit customization and doll stores were now finally all back from their New Year Holidays. This is still an ongoing project and still requires a few modification here and there -most notably the socks colored in dark red – but will show you the progress I’ve made so far :3

(という訳でセブンスドラゴン2020の「刀子(カタナコ)」フィギュアに触発されて家にある物を掻き集めてソラにコスプレさせてみました。セーラー服x日本刀と実にオーソドックスな組み合わせですが、片手の鎧と胴回りのベルトが良い味を出して入るなぁと。まだ色々と試行錯誤中なんですがとりあえず途中経過を…。)

Belated Happy New Years

This post is kinda random and will hardly be as seasonal as some others out there but might as well make one while it still lasts – not sure when a Shogatsu/New Years Holiday ends for most people but mine ended last Wednesday (‘ω`;) Looking back, a lot has happened in the past year with me graduating from college, becoming a 社会人 [Shakaijin=member of the society] and switching jobs. Not everything went as planned due to the external forces, but all things considered I guess I should be grateful that I’m still able to continue this hobby as I’ve been for the past 2 years. Dollfie Dream is an expensive hobby as its body parts, clothing, accessories and related events can cost a bundle and even lead to other addicting hobbies like camera or traveling – both which thankfully I’m not much into…yet. The comments, favorites, retweets and reblogs were also what helped me continue this hobby so many thanks to everyone for their support. Just realized that the stats hit 100,000 (views/visitors?) over the weekend. And of course, my girls were also equally important and have to thank them for posing/being stuffed in a carriage bag hours on end. IMO, Sora was the MVP last year so I’ll be posting several pics of her in the military uniform and a few in the black & white miko outfit just for the occasion. There’s also a few photos taken at Volk’s new photobooth with comrade Jeremy at the end of the post along with other random pics.

(皆さんどうも明けましておめでとうございます。挨拶が大分遅れてしまった上に正月とは全く無関係な写真ばかりになってしまいましたが、漸く時間に余裕が出来たので最近撮った写真や娘達のアップデートを近況報告。先ずは個人的に去年のMVPだったナギサ/斑鳩風のソラを色んなポーズでパシャリ。)
