Even though the nearest doll event is more than a month away, funds are limited and space was running out so instead of bidding on bunch of clothings at YJA which easily fetches up to 20000~30000 yen I figured I just settle with some stuff sold at Volk’s for this post. Nothing special. One item I bought was a Dark Knight Earl Set (SD) and a rapier (consigned dealer’s goods) you see Aura holding in this first picture. Since Aura’s clothing have been traditionally fantasy-like or ojousama-ish (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th clothing) I wanted to make her look like a fencer in the 17~18th century this time.
When I saw DD Miu wearing the Earl Set at Volk’s Akihabara’s show window, I knew this would be perfect for Aura’s next image. However things don’t always go the way you don’t want them too and when I got got home and tried it on she looked like a she was starting a hip pop fashion or something :/ The sleeves were 1.5 times longer than her arm was and the pants were way too baggy. 5000 yen gone to waste orz. I made a similar mistake before with a clothing that was for DOD (?) and failed miserably. Hope this will be the last^^; Has stuff like this happened to you before?
Anyways, since the Earl Set wasn’t going to work I got Aura into her red victorian-ish dress again with her upper-wear since it was kinda getting chilly here in Japan. Surprisingly it works quite well with the rapier I bought and makes her look like a Red Mage from FF. Well…almost ;3
