花見 ~ Hanami 2013 – Part 2

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!

Summer’s little sister, Aiko, came out to say hello too. Her sweet face and endearing eyes are so adorable.

Just look at that little face!

MrCool brought his new girl with him. She’s going to be customized into Sawako Kuronuma eventually, but for now she’s nameless >_<”

CenturyStory brought Primula in this flowing green gown. It made me think of seductive character “The Lady in the Green Kirtle” in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, by C.S. Lewis.

She’s has such a mysterious, dangerous expression here.

Hubby and I couldn’t agree on who to bring with us, so to be fair we each picked one girl.

Rin is totally his princess, and it’s easy to see why. She looks absolutely adorable with her little cat ears.

I had a sentimental reason for bringing Serena out with me. A year ago, I was in Tokyo at Dolpa and it was the last time that I saw my dear friend D.ark. I can’t believe it’s been a year that she’s been gone. I wanted to bring Serena because I know that D.ark would have loved to see her girl out on such a lovely day.

For a bit of fun – how many Dollfie Dreams can we fit into the tree?
Five?

Six!

Amazing!

Afterwards a few of us went out to Joon’s Korean Restaurant for dinner. It was a fun-filled day, which is part of the spirit of what going out for hanami is about!

Kevin was a bit bummed that we didn’t get some photos of the dolls in wa-loli dresses (which is a mash-up of Lolita and traditional kimono/ yukata) so hopefully the weather will hold out and we can come back to the park later in the week for more pictures!
