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。)

DD Racing Miku 2011 – DDレーミク2011

Been a while but here’s the review photos of Sora in her new Racing Miku 2011 ver cosplay outfit I bought at Wonder Festival 2012 Summer. The outfit was made by a dealer called Cherry Milk and was sold at around 15000 yen. The set comes with a clear decorated plastic hair tie, a choker, body suit, long gloves, knee-socks and was surprised to know that it even has shoes. Would’ve been perfect if it included the head set as well but me including a few others weren’t bothered by it too much or maybe not at all. Despite there being 15 stocks in total for this event, the outfit sold out a lot quicker than expected and the one Sora is wearing now happens to be the very last one ^^; Talk about close call lol.Cherry Milk is a relatively popular circle that makes a Miku related outfit every once in a while like the Snow Miku outfit or Default Miku outfit Sora had on a year ago and I think the quality is getting better and better. If they do make one, I’ll certainly go for their Racing Miku 2012 outfit as well. Anyways, without further ado, here’s Racing Sora-Miku 2011~

(少々時間が経ってしまいましたがワンフェスの戦利品であるDD用レーシングミク2011verのレビュー記事です。ディーラー名はお馴染みのチェリーミルクさんで去年もミクコスでお世話になったところですね。予想以上の瞬殺っぷりに焦りましたが何とかラスト一品を手に入れる事ができました・・)

Idoll 34 and Shogun Sora

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from Idoll since Home Town Dollpa was taking place on the same date and also because the location was in a much smaller building than usual. However, to our luck this event turned out to be more productive than all the Idoll we’ve attended so far. Unlike in the past, the visitors in line were directed to this warm spacious room and were handed Red Bull beverages for free which caught me and the other visitors off guard making this face ( ゚д゚ ). Must’ve been some kind of a promotion, but the administrators of Idoll should consider bringing those Red Bull people everytime from now on imo XD After all, doll events mean serious business…yeah ;3

The acquired loot was this white military uniform which according to other war-mania bloggist was once worn by captains of Japanese naval army during its empirical period. I just wrote Shogun here because it makes a better title XD A bit expensive but since Aura, her dark half, was fully equipped with her black German-ish uniform this just had to happen^^; Other loots included  ridiculously long 1/3 sized Japanese sword, 1/3 sized golden retro-binocluar, a red necktie, Azure-san’s DD photo calender and a background wallpaper for DD photography. While I did not have the chance to review all of the items I’ve listed here, I did take more detailed photos of Sora in her Japanese military uniform so do expect some of those near the latter half of this post.

The first half will be pics of dolls I took at the collection booth during my time there. Not a whole lot this time because I was either too busy chatting with other DD owners or running back and forth in the dealer’s booths ;3

Doll Meet at Lake Suwa Hotel

As mentioned in the previous post, me and a couple of DD comrades got together to do a small doll meet at a hotel nearby Lake Suwa in Nagano last weekend. Feels like it’s been forever since I last traveled to places outside the Kanto area and of course, we had an excellent time enjoying the Onsen, eating this exquisite grand French dinner and taking photograph of our dolls in our room while drinking sake, chatting about things and whatnot. Being our first doll-vacation however, a lot of things didn’t work out the way they were supposed to, like how the schedule didn’t meet one of the participants, how the place was pouring wet when we got there and how the lake itself wasn’t much of a photo-shooting location during this season^^; So if you were expecting pictures like this, I apologize ;3 A well carried group photoshoot trip it seems is not without extensive researching and scheduling hmm.

Since it was raining/snowing outside, we basically used the room we stayed in for photoshooting, mostly on the desk and the futons. The lighting was minimal so I had to work my way around with the reflector in the other hand to get some of the shots. A reminder yet again that I need to buy one of those external flash equipment and that light bouncer-thingamajig. Kinda embarrassed by the fact that I only have GF1+ default 20mm pancake lens and haven’t studied crap about photography despite being a DD hobbyist for over a year^^; Well, on the bright side we had ample of time at our side to try out different poses, props and also exchanging clothes  unlike the short gathering at the tables of doll events :3 We were also kinda drunk at that time from the sake so some pics are NSFW (not suitable for work) XD. Anyways here are the pictures~

Puella Magi☆Homura Magica

Well, this post has been way overdue since I announced that I will be done writing by the end of last week. For the constant readers out there I apologize for the delay. Just wanted to make sure I had everything in place for the photoshoot since as some may know, I am a huge fan of Madoka Magica, especially Homura. Love her character design, personality, voice actress and her battle scenes (`・ω・´). Hommando!!! XD

The Akemi Homura cosplay clothing you’ll see in the following pictures was bought from one of the dealers in the Wonder Festival Summer 2011 that took place two Sundays ago. There were 2 dealers selling Puella Magi (Madoka, Homura, Mami…etc) cosplay clothing for DDs, one them was around 15000 yen and the other 25000 yen. At first glance the first dealer’s price was attractive and the clothing they sold seemed better in terms of color replication but after some consideration, I went with the second dealer’s expensive one. Experience in shopping for doll clothing at YJA and elsewhere has taught me that in most cases, the more you pay the better you get^^;

Anyways, without further ado, I give you Puella Magi☆Homura Magica~

Madoka Magica Cafe & DD Miku

Good Smile Cafe holds an anime campaign every once in a while and arrange  their interior, goods and meal to the theme of the anime in topic. Previous campaigns in Good Smile cafe featured Black★Rock Shooter, Panty, Stocking and Garterbelt and its latest installation is the much controversial Puella Magi Madoka☆Magica. Although there was no rush since the campaign will continue for over 2 months, over hundred people lines up daily to get a glimpse of what was inside and things like this tells you just how much attraction this anime is getting. Most animes are forgotten shortly after it ends^^;

On thursday me, @Syaorankun, @ddotark and @fransgaard met up at Matsudo Station to see what all this was about and took a couple of pictures to share with you guys/gals here.  Was surprised tho to find out that I was the only one in the group who watched all of the episodes.

2~3 hours of waiting in line didn’t bother me much since I was a huge fan of the series but I can imagine the experience was somewhat different for those who weren’t….(・ω・;)
