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`)

Lolified Xera and Dollpa Goodies

As much as I appreciate Volks for releasing their doll related products, one thing that I’ve always  found irritating is the fact that it takes them forever to release spare parts like the DD inner-frames should a girl with one break, or a MDD white bodies in case somebody with a limited/custom white DD starts needing them. Sora has broken both her arm and back in the past but because of the scarcity of inner frames in the market, I had to buy a whole new body from Volks to replace them. Xera additionally will have to wait until somebody puts their MDD white bodies on sale at YJA since her face-up was designed to fit a MDD. While we can still keep hopes up for the DD inner-frames due to increasing demand, the chance of MDD white bodies coming out is pretty slim given Volk’s poor reputation for after sales service and the fact that the there were only 2 limited MDDs with white bodies (Al Azif and Etheldreda).

Wish I’d known this ahead of time but thanks to my followers on twitter, I’ve found an alternate solution for a MDD white bodies. The process is quite simple too :3 All you need is a 40 cm body from a manufacturer called Parabox (related to Obitsu?) and a DD Head/Obitsu (40cm) neck joint converter which looks something like this. Although it’s from a different company, Parabox 40cm bodies are about the same height as an MDD and the skin tone is lighter than a MDD normal skin bodies (See comparison here). The body structure is also slightly different but fits MSD and MDD sized clothing (Was warned by an owner of a DD head/Parabox40 body doll that MDD sized ones might be tight around the legs).

Fortunately enough they had one stock left in their store in Yokohama and even discounted it by 15% rounding the price to around 17000 yen. Added with a MSD dress I found at Tokyo Dolk Akihabara, Xera here is finally completed…(*´ω`)

Dollpa 26 Display Table

Those following me on twitter may have already heard the news but Sora, Aura and I took a trip to Doll Party (Dollpa) 26 last Sunday taking place at Tokyo Big Site. Had a wonderful time meeting, talking and exchanging name cards with comrades from various communities as well as buying doll related goods and taking pics of other people’s daughters. Doll Show and Idoll which preceded this event was great and all but it’s scale is nothing compared to Dollpa and unfortunately for those who are relatively new to this event, there are also hundreds of things to learn about it^^; Despite having attended to this event for 3 consecutive times, I was once again baffled by their convoluted rules and had to learn a couple of things the hard way.

One thing I learned is that the guidebooks (entrance ticket) that are sold in Volks stores sells out pretty quick and their stock is unpredictable. The last time I bought guidebooks for Dollpa, the Yokohama store had stocks left even in the day before the event. This time, both the Yokohama and Akihabara store’s guidebooks were sold out 4-5 days before the event :/ This partly due to the fact that the guidebook also contain lottery tickets to get in line to purchase the limited dollfies. Participants buy them in dozens to get a good number as did one of my comrades as did one of my comrades. Another thing I learned was that the lottery tickets you draw at the limited line alone will not get you inside the stadium and that you’ll have to line up again in the regular line and draw a ticket their again. There was a total of 3 different lines to determine what order those people will line up. So confusing lol…(´・ω・`)

If you’re planning on attending Dollpa, do make sure you do extensive research before coming to Japan. Well, now that’s out of the way here are the photos I took at the Dollpa 26.

Dollpa 25

Got back from Dollpa 25 safetly, talked with bunch of comrades from twitter, figure.fm and the Yahoo blog community and had what could be the most interesting doll event that I’ve attended.I haven’t had the time to take pictures of the dealer’s booth and what they had for sale but took tons of photos in the participant’s doll display area (pay/free) which I’m sure will be worth the time looking at^^

Do mind the blurriness in some of the images as I’ve forgotten to bring a tripod with me and am not used to taking pictures of dolls at event like these ;) And yes, I made sure that I didn’t go taking pictures of other parent’s girls too much and made sure they got the attention too (´・ω・`;)
