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!
Rin is casually ready to help out too in her pink springtime sakura-print apron.
Little Médée was not about to be left out too, she threw on an apron and is ready to tackle some cleaning!
PlasticFantastic brought her beautiful Asuka and Rei both in co-ordinating maid outfits! So much cuteness!
While Asuka wasn’t paying attention, CenturyStory’s Primula snuck in and took Rei’s place. These 2 maids in red look so cool!
Little Maya wandered off to picked some wildflowers.
Di-chan123’s Sia is ready to get to work!
And she quickly went at scrubbing up some iron bars –
We had an adorable collection of tiny resins at this meet too!
From the left we have Nurlindae’s Ellie (Soom Sammi), Nyx (Soom Bygg), Rini (Soom Ai) Mirwyn (Soom Keny) and Tallenvyaere’s Acheron. Nurlindae took the Spring Cleaning theme very seriously, and she cleaned out some old fabric at home to make new outfits for her dolls! Wow!
I was quite taken with little Acheron. He is a Luts Zuzu Mir and so cute!
Di-chan123 also brought Shana (MDD Louise) who is hanging around with Médée and Maya.
Tanu-chan brought her little Kari.
And MrCool brought pretty Yukino out.
Here’s Kai-Suteki’s Tai being the bad-ass of the group, with her cigarette and shades.
Kai also brought Selene, who is a VMF50 Yumi doll. This was my first time seeing a VMF50 up close and I was a bit surprised since she’s so slender and dainty.
Juu-Yuki brought her newest addition with her, her cute Sora Kasugano custom. She’s so shy and sweet!

Meo brought Lucy, and she was wearing a beautiful white dress. It was a bit difficult for me to get decent photos of Lucy in the direct sunlight, but here in the shade you can see her adorable face.
Nkei brought her newest doll, a beautiful DD Rise Kujikawa who she has named Summer. She looks like a lovely fairy with her soft green hair and striking green eyes.
Sid really liked being outdoors. It was one of the first sunny and warm days of the year – we’ve had a very unseasonably cold spring so far.
Rin brought her nekomimi ears with her, and she looks absolutely adorable with them on!

Here are a few photos of lunch at Manpuku: takoyaki, curry don, unagi-don and other tasty dishes!
Afterwards a few of us went to Kenzo Ramen for dinner, and in lieu of dessert we hit up a Sugar Mountain candy store and all bought bags of candy! ^__^”
If you’re like to check out the rest of my photos, they are in this Flickr set but I highly recommend checking out AkaTG’s blog post on the day, his photos are beautiful!
Can’t wait until our next meetup!
