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`)

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~

Another Side : Homura Magica

Well, it’s been 3 good months since I last a bought clothing for my daughters and was about to run out of ideas for these posts but just last week I was fortunate enough to come by one that suited my daughters taste in fashion ; fashion which isn’t all that casual and has a mixture of fantasy-like (?) atmosphere to it. The moment I saw it on YJA, intuition told me that it would be a perfect alternative dress for Sorahomu (Sora cosplaying as Homura) and a perfect matching dress for Aura’s puella magi-ish dress. The bid war ended earlier than I expected pricing around 17000 yen and the sending country was Shanghai which meant that it’d only take 2 days for it to arrive. Sadly the proxy guy who was in charge of taking contact turned out to be a lazy bum who neglected to respond to my mail for 4 days delaying the arrival of the clothes by nearly a week :/

I’ve had worse though. The guy who sold me Aura’s head (DD Mio head) didn’t respond to my mail for a week and when the package arrived, I was aghast by the sight of Aura’s bare head covered in newspaper. The head was miraculously not stained but any doll owner with a common sense should know better than to wrap the head in such a thing. The wig that came with the head was crumpled in the bottom of the box rendering it useless leaving me no choice but to throw it away. What’s more is that when I gave this seller the evaluation he deserves, he went berserk calling me all kind of names and giving me the worst grade as a bidder. (This is where Aura’s twisted personality came from sorta XD) Did you ever encounter troubles in YJA?

Nowadays, I try to be more careful by checking the seller’s evaluation but there’s no can do if the seamstress picks proxy guy with poor service like this time. Thank god the dress was well worth the wait (‘A`;)

Alluring Sora

I first want to thank all those who participated in the DD clothes sale in the last post. Although Sora and Aura didn’t need them anymore, it feels good to know that they were passed on to good DD parents I know online as the clothes themselves were somewhat full of memories. Most are sold out now but I might have more to sell in the future so do please keep checking~(-ω-)

Back to the subject, couple of days ago my flickr account was tagged by other users in one of their photos and on them were instructions telling me to upload a picture of my nominated doll, introduce why they were special and tag other DD owners I knew on the site. From the comments, it’d sounded like this was some kind of a customary in the flickr DD group so I went along and posted mine here.  The reason why I felt Mio was special was because unlike many DDs out there with a smile on their faces, she had a rather passive or refrained expression which is quite versatile and gives the picture a unique atmosphere. For an example,  taking the photo from a high angle while hiding the eyebrow gives her the determined cool look and on the other hand, taking a shot from an low angle revealing them gives her the confused or worried look.  (I think this is why she went well with the Homura cosplay). She does well with your normal everyday poses, fighting poses with weapons, cosplays and you’ll find out later in this post that she also does good in the ecchi pics as well XD. Of course, she has her faults like the lack of good photo angle but what fun would DD photography be if you took picture of dolls that looked good in anything anywhere?

Anyways, here is Sora’s turn in the “Alluring Series” post. Please note that some pics may be NSFW^^;

だから私は、戦い続ける

Hey all, it’s been a while….yet again (´・ω・`) Am currently preparing to go back to uni again this coming December to finish up on my senior thesis. It’s a major pain in the ass but I should  have more time back there than I do now since I’ll be cutting back on work by a lot. Before we move on to the post, I have a question.

How does everyone store their doll clothing? Do they separate them by color and wrap’em in their packages to prevent any possible staining or put moth balls to keep the bugs away? Are the clothes taken out of storage and washed every now and then? A couple of these question came up while I was cleaning up the room  and was wondering what do people do to keep their daughter’s clothes in good condition. I don’t go as far as to do all of these but thought I should be doing more if I was going to sell them to someone someday^^; ….Actually I’m thinking of selling a few. More details at the end of the post.

Anyways, while I was cleaning up the room I came across a long forgotten doll accessory I used in my “Wings to Fly” post. Quality isn’t top notch but with a few tweaks it turned out decent enough to be used as a prop for this post. Added with a red ribbon thingy I made, Sorahomu is now in her altered universe version as seen in Madoka Magica episode 12.

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~

Puella Magi Aura☆Magica

I love the color red.

Besides the obvious which are, as you can probably tell from my selection in clothing (DD and human), black and white, red is the color I choose above others. Whenever I’m at a doll event or on YJA, my eyes are set to detect these colors and if they are remotely close to my taste, you can bet that thing will be gone before one can say Dollfie Dream. I don’t know why I like red and I won’t waste time pondering about that and will leave that to the color specialists or shrinks who delve into the subject and give them meanings. Awesome red is awesome period.

That being so it was only natural for Aura’s theme color to be red and me being attracted to Sakura Kyoko’s clothing from Mahoushoujo Madoka☆Magica. Several months ago I came across a clothing that was very similar to Kyoko’s outfit but back then the world had yet to know the epicness of this anime and I regretingly did not buy it when I had the chance. Fortunately though, the seller made a similar outfit again but only this time the design was far more furbished and luckily made it’s way home here.

The set of clothing arrived earlier this week and I must say the waiting and the bidding war was well worth it. Heck, I’d still would’ve paid it even if the prices went as high as dollfies themselves would have cost. It didn’t, but you can say it was close to it….(‘A`;)
