Archive for Kimono
I’ve been very busy this week so I’m late in reporting this. On Tuesday (3/15/2011) I received my 3rd Dollfie Dream daughter Saber Lily. She is just so beautiful that the pictures don’t do her justice. She really has a wonderful elegant look to her and she’s so photogenic.
I made a detailed post for her arrival at figure.fm if you want to see those pics with a small photo-story as well.
I was very worried about her wig after hearing so many people who have had problems with it. Thankfully it was fine and I managed to get it on without damaging her pony tail. For those who are getting her or are unfamiliar with the problem the trouble is with her pony tail. The pony tail is not very securely attached and if you pull on it or even nudge it too much it could come loose and fall off.
Another issue is the hair that’s coming together where it attaches to the wig is not as securely held together as it could/should be. This could cause hairs to come loose from the pony tail. There are some fixes that are suggested on the Internet and some seem to work I’m tempted to try the suggestion from Wolfheinrich which he did on his Lily – it involves sewing through the wig cap, into the pony tail, and back… securing it with a few loops so it can accept more pressure without coming loose.
I will be sure to post more and more pics of Lily as I take them. I’m still working on finishing the styling of her wig and it’s taking some time. I want her to look her best for future pics.
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.
