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。)

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。)

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`)

Xera’s Day Off セラの休日

Kinda felt like I’ve been neglecting Xera as of late – like not bringing her to the studio photoshoot, not making a post about her for over a month…etc – so figured it’s time I put the spotlight on her for a change and take her out. Looking at her wardrobes though, everything seemed a bit too stuffy and the weather we’re having here in Japan would likely give her a heat stoke if she went out ^^; Given that gothic lolita fashion or dress with good breathability are hard to come by, casual fashion seemed like a good option.  Haven’t been very partial to casual clothing due to my low coordination skills and the lack of decent clothing in the market but with some luck, I was able to come up with a new image for Xera after spending several tens of minutes rummaging through clothes at the Akihabara Azone store.

Newly bought items were the  black punk-style skirt which was 2100 yen-ish and the white blouse (?) 1500 yen-ish. The hair bow, choker, thigh socks, and shoes are something from her previous dress and the red glasses and bag you’ve seen Sora use them a while ago. Took her to Volks Yokohama for a short photo session but before we move on, here’s a few photos of Xera’s new look (‘ω`)

(暫くセラに構ってあげられなかったので本ブログでは滅多に載せないカジュアル服を見繕ってみました~。服の殆どはアゾンで調達。それ以外の小物は過去服の流用です。折角だったのでついでにセラと一緒に横浜某でデートしてきました(‘ω`)デュフフ)

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`)

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~

Brief Update on Führer Aura

Will be heading to an Onsen hotel in Kamisuwa this coming weekend with bunch of DD comrades and since I heard the winter cold can get nasty up there, I thought I prep Aura with a jacket and few props to go with her military uniform I found at Tokyo Dolk. The jacket was a little no more than a few thousand yen, the tobacco in her hands 150 yen, and the pocket watch 1000-something yen. They were pretty nice addition to Aura as it gives her a more intimidating authoritative look but I dunno…maybe the tobacco was overdoing it ;3 I personally don’t smoke and prefer to stay away from places with smokers because it stains doll yellow with its nicotine and smell….hope you’re not one of them X3

The jacket set came with a hat but was rather flimsy and lame looking (the type that came before WWII?) so I removed its eagle badge and replaced it onto the hat Aura had before. Should make it closer to the real thing. I prefer staring at her miniskirt more so the pants that came with the set will be incorporated later in the future…or more like never :3  You may also have noticed that the bulk of her gauntlet is gone leaving only the hand part. This was because the thorns protruding from it kept making the jacket come off and really limited her poses.

Quite satisfied with the results and excited about the trip but to think that I have to carry all this plus Sora and Xera each with their own set of stands is quite discouraging^^; Hope I can get some nice pics and get back in one piece as well….
