Microkini Aura and Desk Update

With the summer heat kicking in and room temperature climbing up to 30-35°C day and night, daughters were in need of an even more revealing outfit and during my occasional visit to Akihabara, I came across this black microkini outfit at Volks. Much smaller than the white microkini outfit Aura had on last year and it just barely cover her important parts – which is splendid :3 While I didn’t have a whole variety of silver/black/red beads and accessories, I gathered bits and pieces I had lying around the house (volks black headphone, 3 bracelets, thigh bands, a ring (many many thanks to Otakusan), rapier belt and etc) to give her a summer look. No stains so far but probably best to remove them whenever I can as the summer heat softens the vinyl and makes it more prone to stains. My workspace also had a few minor upgrades (display cases, dry boxes, figures and etc) in the past couple of months so will go over the changes in the latter half of the post.

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…。)

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。)

Xera in Military Clothing 軍服セラ

With Sora and Aura in their completed military clothing, I had this strong urge to give Xera the same treatment to make things more uniform. That was when I stumbled across this military clothing by Doll Heart for 40 cm sized (MSD/MDD) dolls while doing a routine checkup on one of the doll shops in Akihabara. The price was somewhere around 12000 yen and included a blazer, inner-vest, shirt, belt, necktie, pants, belt, gloves and an arm band. Quite a bit of assortment of accessories but like with most sets of clothing, not all were usable – pants were too long and gloves just wouldn’t fit. The design is reminiscent of the Nazi Germany military uniform but thankfully this one uses a regular iron cross instead of the infamous swastika. It also features a lot more detail than the German military clothing by SEN I bought a year ago for Aura. Guessing this was originally meant to fit a male doll but didn’t matter much for Xera since she was so flat-chested… Anyways, I have a couple of review photos for you to gander and also some photos of other military goods I bought at previous doll events in the latter half of the post.

DD Selvaria Bles DD セルベリア・ブレス

Been itching to make this post for weeks and months but now Aura’s Selvaria Bles DD project is finally complete. The idea has been with me ever since her twin sister, Sora began wearing the Nagisa-ish military uniform and became confident of the dealer’s ability to take on this commission after sampling one of their latest works. The cost was somewhere around 40,000 yen, almost equivalent to the price of 1 dollfie dream, but a small price to pay to have my own (or possibly the only?) DD Selvaria Bles. I’ve always loved the character from the anime and the game and felt Aura would be the perfect model. The production began late September and the clothes arrived at the beginning of this month. The boots however got delayed and took another 2 weeks, just in time for Dollpa 28. I was supposed to have much more time for this post but will publish it anyways before anyone else does (Not sure if anyone would understand but I just couldn’t bear the thought of other people uploading pics of her before me after all this wait…^^;). Will probably beef this post up later with more pics and maybe even the blue flame effects using photoshop when I have more time. Might even start creating the spear and shield of Valkyria when 3D printers become more feasible – $2000 is still a bit too much. Anyways…like I said it’s a short post but pretty much covers all the features of this costume.

(何かと時間が掛かったセルベリア・ブレス大佐のDD用オーダー衣装が漸く完成して届きました。本来こういった記事はもっと枚数を用意するもんなのですが、ドルパ前夜という事で今回は手短に。とりあえずオーナーである自分が誰よりも先に写真を公開できれば十分満足かなと。専用銃のRuhm、ヴァルキュリアの槍/盾が今後の課題…。)

Workspace 机周り 2012/11/5

Some diary-ish post on my otaku room and a couple of other things – It’s been almost 2 months since I started working from home and one thing I came to notice was how quiet the house was during the day and how long or maybe short that day was – you wake up in your room, work in your room, eat in your room, sleep in your room and the cycle goes on. Being the indoor type, I never minded environments like this and rather welcomed it. No need to ride the super-congested trains in the morning too which was great. However as the days passed, it’s come to my attention that it’s not always easy keeping your concentration up and working efficiently when you’re in a room with no windows and stuck with the same scenery. It’s not much but to alleviate some of the ongoing situation, I’ve spruced up my workspace over the few weeks by adding more lively figures, plants and some gadgets. Thought I lost my passion for figures after the dolls (Sora, Aura and Xera) came but it’s still there alright :3 Continue reading ‘Workspace 机周り 2012/11/5′

Sora, Xera and Aura Updates

Just another one of my short random posts where I’ll go over the minor modifications, clothes that I’ve yet to introduce and poses that I haven’t tried yet. I’ve noticed this blog has been getting a steady amount of viewers even though there are no new posts and want to apologize for those frequenters first of all. Life is anything but easy recently, sometimes working until midnight to meet the deadline and also searching for other opportunities on the side. Missed loads of doll meet that takes place at night during the weekdays and on weekdays but I guess this is part of life.
Anyhow, first up is the Nagisa-Sora outfit that’s been going under a constant modification in the last half-year or so. Not all changes were obvious but these adjustments do add up bit by bit. This time around, I’ve added an extra golden lines on the collar, chest pocket, skirt and shoes with golden ribbons that resembled the original material the seamstress used for this outfit. The uniform that Nagisa from PS02 and Ikaruga from Senran Kagura wore featured various streaks of gold throughout so I figured I increase them on Sora’s as well. Picking the right place where it wouldn’t look out-of-place was a difficult one because the original design of this uniform was very simplistic. Not much creases and folds on the clothes to work with.

(皆さんどうもこんぬつわ。相変わらず仕事で忙殺されていますが、気晴らしの為に娘達のプチアップデートをうp。先ずはここ半年くらい改造を続けて来たナギサ/斑鳩風の軍服ソラを紹介していこうかなと。)

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.

Light Saber Girls ライトセイバー系女子

Whilst lurking around the Star Wars part of Youtube at home with my daughters, I was suddenly reminded of the lightsaber chopsticks by Kotobukiya that could coincidentally (?) be held by 1/3 scale dolls. As a fan, I’ve always wanted to add them to my girl’s collection of weapons and they’re considerately cheaper (940 yen) than most doll weapons you’d find in the market. Further lurking then led me to this tutorial video that explained how you can easily photoshop boring looking lightsaber toys close to a real one. The process is quite simple and you can do this by first creating a new screen layer, select the blade part with polygonal lasso tool or linear tool, fill the selected area with white, duplicate it into 3-4 layers, add Gaussian blur with different radius to each layer, merge those layers into one,  adjust the color balance to your desired lightsaber’s color and add a few other effects. Despite not having much time for creative posts like I did before, I took the time to go to Yodobashi Camera Yokohama to retrieve the chopsticks, take photos and edited the photo anyways. It might’ve been because I was a bit stressed from life and needed a break, but I mostly blame the force for guiding me into making this post ;3 This post will be short though since the last post had 60-something pictures in total.

(どうもです。漸く重い腰を上げて前々から気になってたコトブキヤ製のライトセイバー箸なるものを買ってきて少し遊んでみました。価格は¥940と一般のドール武器と比べれば格安で、グリップも持ち手で十分な程。とはいえこのままでポーズさせるだけでは地味でつまらないので拙いながらもフォトショで加工してみました。)

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。)
