Nightgown Xera ネグリジェ幼女

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.

(MDD系ドールは服難民必至ですが、最近漸く納得の行くクオリティの衣装を先日行われたドールショウで入手。今回はネグリジェ姿の小鳩をイメージしてみたので黒ワンピ、黒リボンと太ももストラップという構成になりました。ついでにドルパでふと買ったMDDサイズのドラゴンこ○しも追加してみたらなんともカオスなコーデに…(ヽ’ω`)セラ本体にはチーク付け足し、艶消しスプレー再塗布、ウィッグ新調(前々回と同タイプ)などと少しばかりメンテもしました。)

Sora’s Kimono Arrangement and Doll Meets

After “another” month of blog hiatus, we continue with the kimono theme and this time I’ll go over the several modification I’ve added to Sora’s clothing over the last few weeks. Like with the military clothing, kimonos are quite augmentable and leave you with lots of space to customize and make-do. In my case I’ve folded the suso inwards to enable more mobility, modified how the obiage was tied around her waist, made a obikazari out of spare parts and bought a flower decoration/sensu/2 additional obi strands/miniature hanya mask/Geta. I’ve also fiddled with the kitsune mask so that she can keep it on her head without having to use the white rubber band – the band though smooth makes a mess when I try to put it on her long black hair. Kinda hard to notice but I’ve also renewed her black wig and modded her bangs in the usual style as well. There’s just so much to work and plethora of arrangement examples to get inspiration from too. The only difficulty with kimonos are the limited poseability. I had to adjust the same pose dozen of times and retake that shot in many different angles to get some interesting shots which is partly the reason why it took so long for this post to come up. I was also occupied with the things that came up in my personal life as well. Family stuff, job stuff and etc. I suppose they’re heading in a good direction but with new privilege comes new responsibility which could mean even less time to update this blog ;P

(私生活や仕事でバタバタしていた関係で暫く放置していたブログですが、ソラの着物アレンジは以前と変わらずボチボチと進めていたので今回まとめて報告です。)

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。)

Doll Show 35 有料卓

Belated as usual but here are some pics taken at Doll Show 35 display table last Sunday. Because of what little time and space we had, I’ve only had the chance of photographing a few of the dolls on this floor and none from the dealer’s floor above. For those interested in a more thorough report, you might want to take a look at Linz-san’s doll/figure blog. His event reports are most detailed and usually with dealer’s names as well. Getting back to the subject, there weren’t much doll stuff that caught my interest this time save for one set of MDD-sized clothing but was again surprised by how many doll owners gathered at our table. Must’ve been at least 20 dolls and the numbers seem to be growing after each event^^; Also getting harder to keep track of the doll’s names and their owners. Many thanks to Ento-san who got here first and secured the table for us.

Wonder Festival 2012 Summer and DD Festival

As mentioned in the last post, me and a few other guys went to the Wonder Festival Summer 2012 held in Makuhari Messe yesterday. Wasn’t with my usual doll group but I did meet a few other doll owners I knew from twitter and such. Some were carrying dolls so they could attend the DD festival (Miss Contest & Group photoshoot) held in Akihabara Volks later in the day which I also dropped by near its end. Must’ve taken over 200-300 photos in all since this was a very special occasion but had to flick some away due to blurriness or restrictions. Still, there’s loads of images up ahead so I’ll keep my usual blabbering very brief (‘ω`)

Idoll 35 有料卓

Apologies for the lateness but here are a couple of pictures taken at Idoll 35 last Sunday. Lot of things came by and went last week like for example the new job that started on Monday which made updating a bit difficult. Work is very interesting, has good work-life balance and involves things I’m passionate about but since waking up as early as 6am has never my bright side, I just drop dead upon arrival at home ;3 The pics taken on this day didn’t come out as exactly as I had hoped for so that also took a while to fix-up. F*cking computer decided to crashed on me a couple of times so yeah :/ Should be able to get back to updating at least once a week once I’ve gotten used to the new working environment and receive my personal Macbook Pro from the boss. Heard it comes with a Lightroom 3 or 4 that I’ve been using on the other machine at work so editing will be super easy and fast compared to Picasa :3 Good practice to experiment with too maybe.

As I was saying, me and the usual doll group gathered at Hamamatsucho to shop and went down to the second floor to rent a display table. The doll you see on the first picture below belongs to Lastnostalgic-san (Saber Alter), Ento-san (Marisa), Baradanji-san (Saber Extra), Torte-san (Custom DDH06), Panda-san (Custom DDH01 with katana), Me (Sora, Aura and Xera), Yumemi-san (Custom DDH01 with pink dress, Custom Latooni with sword, Etheldreda), Arab-san (Sakuya) and Tehuo-san (Niimi Haruka). Couple other guys came in to our table with their daughters and turned out to be quite lively near the end^^; Anybody is welcome to join our table tho so if any of you happen to be attending these events, please feel free to drop by and give us a word :3

Group Doll Photoshoot @ Hotel Geihinkan (ホテル迎賓館)

Daughters were getting tired of having their pictures taken on my desk and so was I. Since outdoor wasn’t an option as Japan was in midst of rain season with serious mosquito infestation, an indoor photoshoot at a photo studio was exactly what me and my girls needed. When I heard that our small doll group was planning one to celebrate the coming of one of the member’s 1st daughter (Saber Alter) and saw the setup on the hotel’s homepage, there was simply no way I could miss this one out.

The Geihinkan Hotel has a couple of rental studios in their rooms and their price for a one night rent (20:00-10:00) fetches around 3-40000 yen. The studio/room we rented was a western style type that had two floors, 3-4 rooms, stair-case, chandeliers and also free lighting equipment/reflectors which I will touch up on later in the post. Wasn’t as expensive as we had 8 participants with over 20 dolls. Those participating were the usual Baradanji-san, Monokok-san, Arab-san, Yumemi-san, Last Nostalgic-san and some new faces such as Panda-damepo-san and Ento-san from twitter. This is probably my girl’s 2nd time at a photostudio but unlike last time it felt more “fun” orientated. Could be because of the rather eccentric members this time and also the fact that we were taking photos in the middle of the night XD Both were interesting to attend to nevertheless and there are always new things to learn :3 Not much Aura pics this time because she had her turn in the studio photoshoot last year and also because I forgot a couple of important accesories XP

(という訳で先週末は普段のメンツ+新メンバー2人の計8人でスタジオ撮影してきました。集まったドール数は20超。壮観也)

Culture Japan Night

Last Friday me and the girls (Sora and Aura) visited the Culture Japan Night (CGM Night) held in Akihabara for the first time. The event, according to its host, was meant to be an event where people from around the world who shares the same passion can get together to socialize / make new friends or display their daughters if they are a doll owner. All you basically needed this time was a twitter account and 2000 yen for the entrance fee which included a curry and free drink bar that was served inside. Not being the really outgoing/socially active type of guy, I didn’t attend the previous CJ night 2 years ago but as many of you may have witnessed, a lot has changed since then^^; Saw a lot of familiar faces in the event like users from twitter, figure.fm and ended up talking with those people most of the time which kinda defeated the purpose of this event but…oh well (‘A`) Only had 2 hours total (arrived late) so my report might not be as detailed or as crisp as other attendants.

Dollpa 27 – 有料卓

Dollpa 27 held in Tokyo Big Site came about a week after Doll Show and as usual me and the girls got together with familiar faces. Although most of us weren’t after the limited dollfies, we left the house around 5am with a carrying case and arrived at Big Site at 8am where we would wait for the next 2 hours in line for the place to open up. No idea where the name is derived from but our usual doll group is now called the “Doll☆cha” ^^; Not sure what to make of the name but I thought naming ourselves like a clan was an interesting idea. Me, Baradanji-san and Yumemi-san’s girl in the first pic here almost look as though they are a party in a fantasy game….almost ;3

Anyhow, there was a lot of interesting dolls at the display tables and have taken pictures of them so I’ll just share it with you guys here. Hope you enjoy (‘ω`)

Doll Show 34 – 有料卓

Although Doll Show came right after Chokaigi, I heard a couple of comrades saying they were going to reserve a display table for us so figured I bring my daughters along. Not the usual members you frequently see in this blog nor did I have much to buy in this event but had an excellent time nonetheless ;3 It’s the meeting part that makes these event worthwhile. Below are a just a “couple” of pictures I took at the display table room in the second floor…(‘ω`)
