Today Rin and Serena were having a relaxed afternoon playing with Médée. So many plushies!
Suddenly Gabi appeared out of nowhere with a big package that the postman just delivered! Angry Bunny was suspicious so he came out to investigate too.
Gabi whipped open the box and peeled back the protective layer of bubble wrap to check out what was inside. I recognize that distinctive yellow box!
Having taken some dolls out earlier last week to High Park for a traditional hanami outing, wearing pretty spring-themed yukata, I wanted to take some girls out for a more casual day in the park.
This is one of my favourite photos of the day – Rin, Serena, nkei’s Summer and MrCool’s Sawako relaxing in a beautiful sakura tree.
Summer is a DD Rise Kujikawa, but nkei has styled her so beautifully in soft pastel greens that she is like a beautiful faerie!
Hanami is the traditional Japanese custom of admiring the beauty of cherry blossoms blooming in the spring. We are fortunate in Toronto to have some beautiful Japanese sakura trees that were a gift from the citizens of Tokyo. It has been a very cold spring, so the sakura trees didn’t reach their peak bloom until early May this year! On Sunday, Kevin met up with PlasticFantastic and Sam for some early morning photos at High Park.
Here are Madeleine, Rin, Sakura and Melty wearing lovely spring yukata in homage to this lovely Japanese tradition.
The morning light is very soft and the girls look so pretty.
On the last weekend of April, the Dollfie Dream owners from the Toronto area got together for our monthly meet! The weather this spring has been unusually cold, which has slowed down the sakura trees in High Park so we had our meetup at Village by the Grange. We all met up for lunch at Manpuku Japanese Eatery before heading out to Grange Park to chill and take pictures.
Our theme for this meetup was “Spring Cleaning” so aprons and cute maids were abundant! Mmmm so much doll meat!
I’m glad that it was a beautiful day, I’ve really missed having outdoor meetups!
I brought Sidonie, wearing the adorable Royal Highness set by puppy52. This little apron and maid hat work very nicely with the outfit and Sid looks ready to lend a helping hand!
To continue my review of the Tenshi-no-Koromo outfits that were released a few weeks ago at the Osaka 7 DP, today I’ll review the Argyle Cardigan Set (DDTK-180). This was a very popular item from the Osaka 7 DP because it is very feminine and made of light-colours and has virtually no risk of staining a Dollfie Dream. Here’s Aerie wearing this pretty outfit set -
The cardigan is a nice quality knit and I was surprised to see that the 2 buttons are functional! I was expecting them to be decorative only, with a hidden snap behind them. There is a reinforced edge and white lining on the inside of where the buttons and button-holes are. If you really don’t like dealing with buttons, it is possible to put the cardigan on without unbuttoning the front, but you’ll need to remove the hands from your DD in order to fit through the sleeves. The way that the cardigan is shaped lays very nicely over the back of the skirt without any bunching.
Time to showcase another lovely outfits that I’ve recently acquired! This is this gorgeous custom set called “Your Royal Highness” created by Puppy52! I fell in love with the gorgeous print of the skirt and knew that I had to have this set – and most of the pieces are sized for the DDdy/DDdy3 body, which can be hard to find clothing for.
It arrived in a beautiful box and Hinata was very excited to receive this present! What can be inside?
Alright, I’ll be honest, we were both super excited to open up the package so I forgot to take a photo of all the items inside, but here’s Puppy52′s photo from her blog -
Puppy52 knew that this would be a gift for Hinata (since she’s my only DDdy! Hehehe!) and drew this beautiful picture of her! It’s so gorgeous!! *___* Thank you!
I love how the jeans hug the DDdy3′s curves! Puppy52 omitted the belt loops on these capri jeans so there is less bulk at the waistband when tops are worn loosely over top of them.
There are so many pieces that Hinata would look a bit silly wearing them all at once, so Serena is here to help model too!
(Note: Fur stole on Serena by Volks)
This skirt is designed to fit on all Dollfie Dream body types and it’s so pretty! Hinata couldn’t let Serena walk away with it, so here she is modelling it with some cute coordinating stockings. Hinata is showing off a beautiful ‘Red Wine’ coloured wig to coordinate with this outfit set – do you like it on her?
I’m thrilled to own this beautiful set! Puppy52 has just listed a new one-off set for sale as well – details are on her blog. If you like it, please support her wonderful work!
