Nightgown Xera ネグリジェ幼女

Quality MDD clothing are hard to come by these days (possibly due to the lack of new official character MDDs) and you usually have to pay an arm and a leg to get detailed pieces on auction sites like YJA. Luckily though, I spotted this delicate nightgown/negligee/one piece dress at Doll Show 37 held last week for a “relatively” decent price ^^; This nightgown features golden bijou and is pleated from chest down. The satin used gives it a nice glossy look/silky texture and you can read more about it on the dealer’s blog (B.C). The 2 new black hair ribbon was from another dealer at Doll Show and the strap thingy around the thigh and neck are from her previous outfits. And yes, this coordination was again inspired by the loli goddess Kobato – all except for the huge sword on her left hand resembling Gut’s Dragon Slayer from Berserk. Xera herself also went through a couple of maintenance too. Unlike limited DD heads made with paint masks at a factory, custom made DDs like herself needs an occasional re-makeup and an anti-gloss spray treatment. I’ve also renewed her wig with the same product and styled it the same way. Anyhow, below are couple of photos I’ve taken in her new clothing and a few snaps taken at meetups in the last couple of weeks.

Kimono Sora and SEN Studio Photoshoot

I’ve always been a fan of girls in kimono (most notably my first waifu Enma Ai from Jigoku Shoujo) and wanted one for Sora to wear but never had come across a kind that suited her style until just recently – A lot of kimonos in the market had an odd mix of fruity flamboyant colors/patterns and lacked details. This Oiran-style kimono I picked up however had the whole works including a nagajuban decorated in green and pink sakura patterns, a black furisode with asanoha patterns on the collar, a triple ribboned obi, a colorful uchikake, a hair ornament and everything seemed to fit into place. I admire how while the black furisode gives a solemn atmosphere, it’s balanced with the red used in various parts of the set to give off a vibrant feel as well. The black kitsune mask and the red bangasa I had lying around my room looked suitable for the red and black theme so I also incorporated them into the set. The seemingly out of place katana is there because Sora insisted ^^; All I’m missing now are the Getas (sandles) and maybe a couple of those doll sized tatamis and shojis as the kimono theme is surely here to stay. Although dangerous to the wallet, one of the great things about kimonos is that there is plethora of doll sized apparatus for this theme :3 Below are the review pics and also some pics taken at SEN doll photo studio situated in Abiko, Chiba prefecture where I found this gorgeous piece.

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.

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^^;

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.

Aura’s Days Off アウラの休日

This post contain series of picture taken during Avian studio photoshoot, Volks Akihabara group photoshoot and Culture Japan Night Tokyo Summer 2012. Been meaning to make a post for each of these sets but just didn’t have time to get around to all of them. The first few pictures are the most recent ones taken at home during this weekend where I had Aura trying out her latest weaponry, Saber Extra’s Aestus Estus along with her new clothing made by Twilight Moon. Costing a bit over 18000 yen (final bid), this rather appealing clothing came with a stylish hat, hair ribbon, skirt, choker, stocking with garter-belt and parts that covered her bust and arms. In the last set, you’ll see her wearing the SD13 sized new white one piece dress by Nine9 Style I picked up at Tokyo Dollism a few weeks ago. This one included a one piece dress and a slip dress and was only 4000 yen. 2 new dresses last month for Aura alone but probably only one will become one of her default dress. And as the title suggests, Aura was my main model for rest of the photosets since the other girls had been getting all the attention in the past few posts. I basically love all my daughters but she is probably my favorite when it comes to studio photoshoots. Something about her character or atmosphere that makes the posing come to me more naturally. Anyways…loads of pictures up ahead (‘A`)

So I recently found this shop in Akihabara called “Bukiya” that sells 1/3 sized swords and decided to let Sora play around with them a little. It’s only 1500 yen each and is considerately cheaper than the ones sold at doll events which, despite being almost identical, fetch up to 5000-7000 yen. Quality is pretty nice too since it has detailed engravings, doesn’t have that cheap plasticky look most has, comes with a sheath and fits DD hands perfectly. Well, maybe not too practical though because of its weight but nothing too major to keep me from buying 5 of them XD Was planning on buying more of them to replicate the situation I had in mind if only the store had more than 4 types in stock. These “Denix” sword series had lots of other variations like Excalibur so might look for them someplace else later on when I have more money. Btw, this “Bukiya” store itself is a quite an interesting place to visit if you’re a fan of 1/1 scale imitation sword (like me) and happen to be around Akihabara. Would love to start collecting them again and swing them like crazy in the backyard like I did back in the states when I was a wee lad. Good times…:3
