A couple of weeks ago I was back in the UK for the first time since March, and took the chance to meet up with Pink_Blaise and GabrielVH on a lovely Sunday afternoon. We met up in Chinatown for bubble tea and crèpes before walking around in Soho to take a few photos.
Pink_Blaise asked me to bring Micaela (DD Aoko Aozaki) to compare her with the 07 head I had brought along on my previous visit. She brought her beautiful Neris & Kimiko, and I asked Gabe to bring his newest girl, Asuna, out for the day so that I could see her in person! Here are the girls relaxing against a tree.
Photos by: GabrielVH (I didn’t bring my camera >_<” so Gabe did all the hard work!)
Gabe changed Asuna’s eyes so they are more soft and friendly – her default eyes were very cat-like. She has a very fresh peaches and cream face-up and a sweet smile.
A few pretty pictures of Jezatron’s Yoko. I took her on a tiny adventure while the boys and Machiko were watching Wreck-It Ralph on a hot afteroon ^__^”
Jezatron’s impromptu visit to Toronto on his big North American adventure could only mean one thing! Improptu doll meet! I rounded up a few Dollfie Dream owners who were free one Friday evening and we went to Café Princess in the late afternoon for cute dollies and yummy cake!
Jez brought Yoko with him from London for his cross-America motorcycle journey, and adopted Ruby when he was at the Volks USA store in California! I brought Moe and Micaela (DD Aoko Aozaki), PlasticFantastic brought Maddy, Maya and Melty, and MrCool brought his custom Sawako.
Here’s Jez’s new girl Ruby, being photobombed by Micaela! LOL
AgentPanda brought Penny with her, and Anime North’s official mascot doll Momiji came out of her display case for the day too!
Regular readers may remember that fellow DD collector Otakusan167 came to visit us in January – well he liked us so much he came back for another visit! This time the weather was much nicer so we planned a lovely picnic on Ward Island on Lake Ontario. The sky was a bit overcast but that turned out for the best for photo taking!
Here’s Otakusan’s Marisa, with my Micaela (DD Aoko Aozaki), Serena (DD Yuki Morikawa), Gabi (DDS Akira), MrCool’s Sawako and di-chan123’s Sakura just hanging out.
This was Micaela’s first big outing and she was very comfortable in front of the camera.
