Quality MDD clothing are hard to come by these days (possibly due to the lack of new official character MDDs) and you usually have to pay an arm and a leg to get detailed pieces on auction sites like YJA. Luckily though, I spotted this delicate nightgown/negligee/one piece dress at Doll Show 37 held last week for a “relatively” decent price ^^; This nightgown features golden bijou and is pleated from chest down. The satin used gives it a nice glossy look/silky texture and you can read more about it on the dealer’s blog (B.C). The 2 new black hair ribbon was from another dealer at Doll Show and the strap thingy around the thigh and neck are from her previous outfits. And yes, this coordination was again inspired by the loli goddess Kobato - all except for the huge sword on her left hand resembling Gut’s Dragon Slayer from Berserk. Xera herself also went through a couple of maintenance too. Unlike limited DD heads made with paint masks at a factory, custom made DDs like herself needs an occasional re-makeup and an anti-gloss spray treatment. I’ve also renewed her wig with the same product and styled it the same way. Anyhow, below are couple of photos I’ve taken in her new clothing and a few snaps taken at meetups in the last couple of weeks.
The sword as you can see here is all metal and weighs a ton even for a Parabox 40cm body. Slightly thinner than the actual dragon slayer but has a nice weathering effect on the blade and feels very real. Price was 7000 yen-ish by a dealer called Bushido if I recall correctly. Need to think of a way to holster this…
Closeup on B.C’s nightgown/dress. Loving the detail/texture and how it’s contrast to Xera’s white skin & hair. They only had 2 in stock which sold out in minutes so was worth the wait. Still not sure what to say about the price tag tho. If you’re looking for a similar type of dress you might want to check out Shirokoucha-san‘s products that goes on sale at YJA every now and then.
Also picked this school uniform-ish clothing at Doll Show but wasn’t completely satisfied with the quality. They used a thin material so you can see her skin over the uniform. See-through clothing are great but not entirely appropriate in this case imo.
Meanwhile, Aura is back in her white wig with a few modifications. Just like the previous silver wig, you can now see her ear and I’ve also braided her hair. The clothing she’s wearing is something I bought last year which many may remember.
(アウラ嬢はウィッグを白に戻して前回の銀色ウィッグと同じようにスタイリング。How to 動画と睨めっこしながら三つ編みなんかもやってみましたが、どうなんでしょう。衣装は以前購入した服の使い回しです。)
Took these couple of pictures on the day before Dolpa with figure.fm comrades (Evilnecko, Wolfhenreich, JennySakura) visiting/living in Japan. We also met up with bunch of other comrades from Singapore like Wisefreeman so was quite the bustling evening at Volks Akihabara :3
On the left is JennySakura‘s Sakuya. The red dress was absolutely gorgeous and love how each parts were carefully detailed.
And on the right is Wolfhenreich‘s Sakuya. Her uniform was also very nicely done and am thinking my girls would also fancy outfits like these ;)
These 2 cuties are Evilnecko and his wifey’s daughter. Think I’m seeing more and more married couple who are both doll owners.
And the final image is a picture taken at our display table in Dolpa. Also met up with Chun, Syaorankun and his fiance with their daughters on this day. Was a bit of shame I didn’t get to spend enough time at the table to chat and whatnot but there will be a next time I guess ;3
Been trying to catch up on some anime and gaming so haven’t had much time to tweet or post much as of late. Psycho-Pass, Shingeki no Kyojin, Suisei no Gargantua, Berserk and Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus (PS Vita) are a few I enjoyed and would recommend. I’m also eyeing on newer cameras like Sony’s NEX-7 or onces that can take crisp pictures without costing a bomb ^^; The current GF1 is kinda getting old so am open for any suggestions…
