Aura’s See Through Sweater (透けセーター)

The weather is really starting to warm up here in Japan and while I try to hunt down Aura’s ideal kimono, I figured I give her something more casual and revealing for the time being. She hasn’t had anything but military clothing/battle outfit for over half a year nor appeared in the blog properly for some time now. Anyhow, as the title says the latest acquirement is Crobi doll’s see-through knit sweater I picked up at Dolk Tokyo for 2000-3000 yen. It’s intentionally torn here and there to give that used look and depending on the size of the doll’s bust, the opening is wide enough to reveal one or both shoulders. The clothing pretty much fits any 1/3 scale doll and leaves enough space underneath for your doll to wear a camisole, tanktop or whatever comes to mind. Not sure if this is how see-through knit sweaters are supposed to be worn, but for Aura I chose the black bikini with choker and the checkered skirt to give it a sexy/cozy house-dress look – from skirt down her feet are bare. Hard to notice but I also slightly modified her hairstyle using the black hair clip to hang some of her hair on her ears (reference pics here).  Had I an older sister, this would be her ideal look…(‘ω`)

(アウラに合う着物は依然として見つかりませんが、外も漸く暖かくなってきたので先日DOLKでこんな物を買ってきました。部屋着の揺るっぽさとセクシーさを出す為に透け透けセーターの下には以前撮影で使用した黒ビキニのトップ、チョーカーとチェック柄のスカート。足は素足。ヘアスタイルもミニヘアピンで耳に髪が掛かるように地味にアレンジしてたりします。自分の姉の理想像はこんな感じですかね。いや、実際はいないのですが…。)

Kimono Sora and SEN Studio Photoshoot

I’ve always been a fan of girls in kimono (most notably my first waifu Enma Ai from Jigoku Shoujo) and wanted one for Sora to wear but never had come across a kind that suited her style until just recently – A lot of kimonos in the market had an odd mix of fruity flamboyant colors/patterns and lacked details. This Oiran-style kimono I picked up however had the whole works including a nagajuban decorated in green and pink sakura patterns, a black furisode with asanoha patterns on the collar, a triple ribboned obi, a colorful uchikake, a hair ornament and everything seemed to fit into place. I admire how while the black furisode gives a solemn atmosphere, it’s balanced with the red used in various parts of the set to give off a vibrant feel as well. The black kitsune mask and the red bangasa I had lying around my room looked suitable for the red and black theme so I also incorporated them into the set. The seemingly out of place katana is there because Sora insisted ^^; All I’m missing now are the Getas (sandles) and maybe a couple of those doll sized tatamis and shojis as the kimono theme is surely here to stay. Although dangerous to the wallet, one of the great things about kimonos is that there is plethora of doll sized apparatus for this theme :3 Below are the review pics and also some pics taken at SEN doll photo studio situated in Abiko, Chiba prefecture where I found this gorgeous piece.

(長らく冷めていた和服熱ですが、最近漸くソラのイメージに合った着物がSENスタジオで見つかったので試着早々に購入。花魁風といっても赤と黒が基調で、派手ながらもシックに纏まっている感じが良いですね。以前購入した狐のお面、番傘、刀を追加したら中々様になった気がします。記事の前半は今回購入した服のレビューで後半は何時ものメンツと行ったSENスタジオ撮影会の様子です。)

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。)

Group Doll Photoshoot @ Kingyo Studio

Situated in the quiet alley of Ikebukuro Tokyo is a small photostudio called Kingyo Studio where me and 12 other doll owners got together to do some group photoshoot. Participants were Baradanji-san, Monokok-san, yumemi-san, ento-san, arab-san, fino-san, ken-san, pandadamepo-san, Ruise-san, mat-san, yukkco-san and mujip-san. I went with the same’ol Sora but others came with their new daughters some DD and even SD/cast-dolls which we seldom see in our little group. The studio consisted of 2 floors – one with a bar-like atmosphere and the other a mix-n-match of all kinds of theme. As with most studios, it was cheaper if we rented the place during the night so like the one back in July, we took photos throughout the night from 11pm~7am. Besides the cheap price, costing to 2,300 yen per person (30,000 yen total), the place was also pretty resourceful with plethora of props, a convenience store nearby to get some nourishments, lighting equipments and even doll-sized beds and sofas in courtesy of the studio owner. The only setback was the dim lighting on both floors and the rather small room space. I myself did okay I guess and got the most out of the time by remembering to bring my own reflector and not falling dead asleep on the bed like last time^^;

(先週の土曜深夜〜日曜早朝に掛けてきんぎょスタジオにて開催されたドール撮影会に参加してきました。今回は薔薇男児さんを主催に総勢13名が集まり、うちのぷちグループも一年前と比べると随分大所帯になったなぁとしみじみと。)

Aura’s Days Off アウラの休日

This post contain series of picture taken during Avian studio photoshoot, Volks Akihabara group photoshoot and Culture Japan Night Tokyo Summer 2012. Been meaning to make a post for each of these sets but just didn’t have time to get around to all of them. The first few pictures are the most recent ones taken at home during this weekend where I had Aura trying out her latest weaponry, Saber Extra’s Aestus Estus along with her new clothing made by Twilight Moon. Costing a bit over 18000 yen (final bid), this rather appealing clothing came with a stylish hat, hair ribbon, skirt, choker, stocking with garter-belt and parts that covered her bust and arms. In the last set, you’ll see her wearing the SD13 sized new white one piece dress by Nine9 Style I picked up at Tokyo Dollism a few weeks ago. This one included a one piece dress and a slip dress and was only 4000 yen. 2 new dresses last month for Aura alone but probably only one will become one of her default dress. And as the title suggests, Aura was my main model for rest of the photosets since the other girls had been getting all the attention in the past few posts. I basically love all my daughters but she is probably my favorite when it comes to studio photoshoots. Something about her character or atmosphere that makes the posing come to me more naturally. Anyways…loads of pictures up ahead (‘A`)

(ご無沙汰してまつ。個々の記事を作るのは少々面倒だったので今回はAvianスタジオ撮影、秋葉某集合撮影、カルジャパナイト夏2012と自宅で撮った写真達を全部まとめたものになります。比較的にカジュアルなアウラが主役なので「アウラの休日」。掲載画像は多めなのであしからず。)

Xera’s Day Off セラの休日

Kinda felt like I’ve been neglecting Xera as of late – like not bringing her to the studio photoshoot, not making a post about her for over a month…etc – so figured it’s time I put the spotlight on her for a change and take her out. Looking at her wardrobes though, everything seemed a bit too stuffy and the weather we’re having here in Japan would likely give her a heat stoke if she went out ^^; Given that gothic lolita fashion or dress with good breathability are hard to come by, casual fashion seemed like a good option.  Haven’t been very partial to casual clothing due to my low coordination skills and the lack of decent clothing in the market but with some luck, I was able to come up with a new image for Xera after spending several tens of minutes rummaging through clothes at the Akihabara Azone store.

Newly bought items were the  black punk-style skirt which was 2100 yen-ish and the white blouse (?) 1500 yen-ish. The hair bow, choker, thigh socks, and shoes are something from her previous dress and the red glasses and bag you’ve seen Sora use them a while ago. Took her to Volks Yokohama for a short photo session but before we move on, here’s a few photos of Xera’s new look (‘ω`)

(暫くセラに構ってあげられなかったので本ブログでは滅多に載せないカジュアル服を見繕ってみました~。服の殆どはアゾンで調達。それ以外の小物は過去服の流用です。折角だったのでついでにセラと一緒に横浜某でデートしてきました(‘ω`)デュフフ)

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)
