Don’t really have much to say for the past few weeks other than the fact that the weather here is killing me and my schedule on workdays are packed as usual (which is a good thing money-wise). Days have been rather dull since there hasn’t been any doll clothing on YJA that sparked my interest nor a figure for that matter. If you are a doll owner, or a figure collector, you know how important it is to have something to look forward to at your doorstep for you to get you through the interminable hours of work (´・ω・`)
Thankfully enough, Wonder Festival Summer 2011 taking place in Makuhari, Chiba came up in my agenda next weekend in which I plan to meet with a couple of friends from my old blog community. Heard many good stories from doll owner’s trip to Wonfes and the plethora of items they were able to purchase there so I might need to pack heavy :3 Maybe then, I’ll have something better to write about but as for today, I’ll just leave you with a couple of photos I took in my spare time.
The Japanese sword from the last Dollpa was a great find since it didn’t have the cheap plasticky look. One setback tho is that it’s metal blade bears down on the DD’s arm making it hard for Sora to pose. I also think it would’ve nice if the dealer had attached a sheath to the sword since it’s so bloody sharp><
The bangasa (番傘) or Japanese parasol you see below is something I got of at YJA ages ago and appeared in my ASCII entry for dollfie dreamers. I’ve asked Danny about it in one of our recent chat hoping to hear some progress but, as you can imagine from his activities these past few months, it seems he’s way too busy to get his hands around it^^;
Still haven’t completely understood out how this camera works and working indoors didn’t help much either so the white balance and posing was meh this time around. Cnvl-san does a much better job with the bangasa and if you’re interested, you can see some of his works from here.
The photo of Aura down below were taken yesterday around the same time as the photos of Sora taken a week ago. The results were slightly better because I changed the white balance setting and wore a white shirt instead of black^^; worked as a reflector maybe?
I hope I can find something in the coming Wonfes ;3
Some of you may have noticed that Saber Alter hasn’t appeared in this blog for some time now and to answer your questions, I’m thinking of readopting her to someone else who needs her more than I do. Will most likely be on YJA in the coming weeks as a full set. Dunno why I wanted Alter so badly in the first place when I had these 2 beautiful twins…strange lol
