Airy’s Afternoon in the Sun

It’s a beautiful sunny summer day today, and Airy wanted to go outside to enjoy the weather, so I was more than happy to oblige.
I didn’t take many photos of her in her default outfit when I welcomed her home last week so this was a chance to take a few photos.

I’m really impressed with how Volks thought out the design for her outfit – for example the entire front edge of her coat has a wire in it so that you can shape it against Airy’s body to get it very form-fitted. Everything is lined in either white (even her boots!) or that pretty mauve colour.

In case anyone was wondering, I took out her default eyes pretty much as soon as I got her because I didn’t like them at all. I think she looks so much softer and prettier with new animetic eyes from Volks.

Sometimes, you have to just stop and smell the flowers.

And if the flowers happen to match your outfit – well then all for the better! ^__~”

The breeze was picking up Airy’s veil a bit, but the fabric has enough weight to it to stay put on her head.

She can stand very easily on her own thanks to her boots.

Since it’s such a nice day, Airy wanted to relax a bit so after a quick wardrobe change she was ready for a little picnic!

Here she is looking very sweet wearing the Volks “Pink Chiffon Dress Set.” It will fit DD’s with M or L bust, but it looks a bit nicer on the L bust don’t you think? ^__~”

Airy looks a bit like Alice lost in Wonderland with all these pretty flowers all around her!

Another wardrobe change – here’s Airy looking very elegant wearing the “Charlotte Ribbon” Dress. It’s meant for SD13 dolls so the fit is a bit strange. It fits the L-sized bust at the top, however there is a lot of room around the waist. But the bustle-style petticoat gives this gown a beautiful silhouette.

Also, she’s not wearing the the lace arm sleeves that are part of this set because they don’t fit at all since SD13 arms are …erm… fatter… than DD arms! LOL This gown is supposed to be off-shoulder but I moved the little sleeves higher to cover the shoulder joint since they were drooping down on her arms (again, DD arms are slimmer!) and it looked a bit odd.

This angle better shows the silhouette of the gown from the side and back and you can see the lovely details on the gown (but I forgot to steam it before putting it on her! >__<“)

Here Airy is like springtime come alive in the gorgeous Volks Fairy Tale: Spring Pink outfit from the La Parsonal Collection that were released at the Home Town Dolpa Kyoto 8.

The gown fits her beautifully, but you have to be a bit careful with the zipper at the back of the bodice where there is more fabric. The interior of the dress is lined in ivory so there’s no risk of staining. The headpiece can be worn as a garland on top of her Airy’s wig, but I think it looks a little prettier when worn as a headband and fastened behind her neck.

I’m loving this new girl – she’s so versatile and lovely!
