Sora Updates and NEX-5R + SEL24F18Z

Long time no see (‘A`) It’s that time of year again with the stuffy climate, smelly trains and swarming mosquitos. Of all the seasons in Japan, I despise summer the most but one thing there is to appreciate are the girls in bikinis and one thing I do each year to keep myself motivated is to dress up my daughters in these alluring outfits. The bikini Sora has on this year is the same black one manufactured by Azone, but to make things a little more interesting, I managed to muster a few accessories to add into the mix. House is loaded with beads, chains and what-not that my mum collected over the years as an arts & craft teacher and it just so happens that many are perfect size for DDs. Sora’s military outfit also went though a few minor changes so I’ll cover that along with the new camera gear I mentioned on twitter. For now here are the details of Sora’s update.

(どうご無沙汰しています。バタバタしていたら前回の更新からあっという間に2ヶ月が過ぎて7月に・・・。自分は夏というものが大の苦手なんで、少しでも涼しく居られるようこの時期には決まって娘達に水着を着せています。今年ソラに着せている水着は去年と全く同じのアゾン製50cm用黒ビキニなんですが、それだとつまらないんで髪飾りと同じ要領でネックレス等も何点か自作。記事の後半からは軍服の改造や新しいカメラについてもちょっと触れてます。記事の写真の順番と実際の撮影日はバラバラですが、一応一番目の写真が最新版です。)

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…。)

Recent Doll Loots and Doll Show 36

Not every parent will accept or let alone become supportive for their son’s otaku hobby especially when it comes to doll but I’m glad mine were those lucky few who does. One of the latest doll acquisition is this miniature 1/3 scale  blue and white porcelain tea set given to me by my good mother who is into vintage dish collecting, glass beads crafting and etc. This was one of her collection and heard this set was made by a famous company…or something. It’s not as flashy as the miniature tea set I bought at Volks Yokohama for 3000 yen but displays a mature look and feels genuine in a way. Another new item you ‘ll see is the customized DD-sized chair I bought at Doll Show 36 last Saturday for 12000 yen. The chair has no arm rest (which allows my girl to sit with their sword on their waists), comes with a tall decorative back with red cushion and was available in very limited quantity (x2). Both items were a pretty lucky find and think I might restart making my own photobooth :3 I’ve snapped a few pictures at Doll Show so I’ll include that in the latter half of the post.

(最近入手したドール小物やドールショウ36のプチレビューです。ミニチュアティーセットはアンティーク皿集めが趣味の母から頂いた物で、ソラが座っている椅子はディーラーから買い取った特注の大型チェア。ドルショ自体は一時間ぐらいしか居られませんでしたが、自分等の有料卓と近隣の卓の写真は少しばかり撮れたので記事の後半に貼っておきます。)

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。)

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.

(ソラとアウラの軍服が一段落ついたのでセラ用にとドルクで40cmドールサイズの軍服を調達してきました。折角なのでそれと以前ドルパ/ドルショで購入したミリタリ系(?)ドールグッズの写真等もうp。)

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…。)

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。)
