I got a special treat in the mail today, a beautiful new hand made Kimono for my girls. My comrade Balldylox, who I first met online at Figure.fm, has a friend named Ann that has started making doll clothes for Dollfie Dream dolls.
She has recently started to make custom clothes and I was able to get 2 pairs of really cute looking pajamas for my girls – I’ll post those in a future update. What I also got is a simply fantastic blue kimono that she made for me! I got it in tonight and I’m so happy with how it turned out. I regret not buying a 2nd one now with the other material she had.
I took some pictures of Sakura in it tonight. Please forgive some of the photos. I recently got a new camera (I will do a post about that in the near future as well) and also got a new lighting setup that I’m trying to get used to. I think they came out pretty good considering all the new and unfamiliar equipment I’m using. Click on the thumbnail below to see a larger version of that image:
In the last few pics you can see Sakura wearing her new pink/white bra and panty set I was able to get at Volks US recent Dolls Party 24 Regular Items sale. I also got a cute blue/white stripped set that Yukino is wearing at this moment. Poor Yukino is still only an M bust so it’s a little loose on her top – I think she will need to be up-sized in the near future.
I’m a little late updating this on the blog but I got the Aria uniform in the other day for Yukino and I’m really happy with it. It’s a much better quality than I expected. Not sure why I wasn’t expecting much considering it cost about $120 total.
The outfit is made by ‘Cherry Milk’, which I believe is related to ‘Azone’. I was a little worried it wouldn’t fit well on a Dollfie Dream but it’s nearly perfect.
It’s a snug fit which is just how the Aria uniform should be but it’s not too tight. I don’t think it would ever fit over the hips on a Dollfie Dream Dynamite doll. Yukino is a M bust and she has some ‘breathing room’ so I’m tempted to have Sakura try it as she’s an L bust. Read More→
A few weeks ago I got a new figure and finally got around to taking some pictures of it so I wanted to post them. It’s FREEing’s 1/8 scale Mio Akiyama in her “Moe Moe Kyun” maid’s outfit. I pre-ordered this figure back in February and have been eager to get it in. Thankfully it’s just as nice as I thought it would be.
FREEing did a really great job in capturing the feel of Mio from the anime where she does her “Moe Moe Kyun” pose.
If you haven’t seen this before you really should be watching K-On! But so you know what I’m referring to, here is a You Tube clip of that scene:
I’ve finally gotten around to editing a few more photos and decided to post some shots of Saki Kasukabe, the violent non-otaku from my favorite anime – Genshiken. If you haven’t seen the show yet go watch it now. (hehe)
It’s a fantastic show that I’ve talked about before. Saki is the only member of the Genshiken club who is not an Otaku, she’s only a member because her boyfriend joined the club and was eventually blackmailed into joining.
This figure depicts Saki Cosplaying as “Ritsuko Kübel Kettenkrad”, the president of the student council from the fictitious anime called Kujibiki Unbalance with the Genshiken universe. What makes this figure especially fun is that Saki is not an Otaku and has no interest in Cosplaying at all. She was forced to do this and ends up winning the contest because her natural aggressive characteristics are perfectly matched to the character she’s dressed as.
Here is the scene from the show, season 1 – episode 11:
Well, it’s been a tough week and my main system is up and running and I think I recovered all of my data but my system still isn’t running at 100% yet. Thankfully I did recover the shots I took of my figures so I thought I’d post my first photoshoot of one of my favorite figures I own. This is Yurie, the main character from the 2005 anime called Kamichu!
If you haven’t seen Kamichu! and you like lighthearted feel-good shows you should do whatever you can to watch this show. The main story line is that the girl in the center, Yurie Hitotsubashi, suddenly discovers that she is a god and tries to figure out what she should be doing about it. This isn’t a spoiler of any kind, almost the very first line in the first episode is when she tells her friend what she’s discovered about herself.
Check out a clip from the show to see what it’s like:
