Dollfie Dream Monthly Meetup in Toronto – March 22, 2014

Even though AlphaZ was able to attend the January Dollfie Dream meetup in Toronto, it feels like I haven’t been at one in ages @__@” I’ve missed seeing everyone and their pretty dolls! Since the weather is still bitterly cold and gross we met at Go For Tea in Markham. The theme for this month’s meetup was “Spring, please come soon!” since March has almost finished and it is still snowy and cold. Most of the girls were dressed in hoodies, sweaters and other cute casual wear and some colourful chicks added a bit of colour to the group!

Alice wore a light sweater with a nice green coat on top. but she doesn’t seem amused with this bird on her head @_@”

AkaTG’s Alice doesn’t seem to mind this little birdy on her shoulder though!

I also brought Sakura Matou with me – she doesn’t come out too often but she looked very pretty in this forest maiden outfit from Volks (called the Lady Wizard set).

This lovely girl is Tallenvyart’s Emiko – I love her feminine makeup and soft colours.

Tallenvyart also brought one her tiny resin dolls with her. This is Havaamiel, a Soom Yrie sculpt.

AkaTG also brought Horo with him, and she’s in a casual hoodie instead of her usual garb.

PlasticFantastic brought Yoko and her new little twin sister Poppy! She’s has a modified faceup by La”nsy and is so cute!

Poiyo brought MOMO who looks very pretty as a ginger. Maybe I’m getting used to seeing pictures of M.O.M.O. dolls but her sculpt is growing on me a bit :3

Momiji – Anime North’s mascot character – came out too! I always know it’s convention season when I start seeing more of her!

Wherever Momiji is you’re sure to find her biggest fan, AgentPanda’s Penny, not far behind! Look at her cute lamb apron dress! It’s so cute!

AgentPanda also brought her sweet ducky-face Mallie. Here she is with PlasticFantastic’s little Eruno!

This is Tanu-chan’s DDH-05 girl named Bonita (Bonnie). This is one of the pre-painted heads from Volks, but Tanu is also a wonderful faceup artist and I love seeing the custom work that she does. Of the dolls at today’s meetup, she also painted Emiko, Momiji, Penny and Mallie.

MrCool brought his pretty Yukino. In her orange coveralls, she’s ready to get down to work on fixing up a car! ^_~”

Meo brought one of his unique customized girls with him – this is Manami and she has an open-mouthed design and her tongue can be repositioned too!

Although Go For Tea isn’t the most convenient for transit, it’s close to the highway so it’s good for carpooling. Since it’s a bit out of the way, it’s usually not very busy on weekends at lunchtime and the staff don’t mind if we hang around for a while since our group usually racks up a big bill. There are lots of delicious food and drink options for every budget. This time I had the Beef Paper Hot Pot, which is what is sounds like – a paper “bowl” over an open flame with broth and vegetables, with condiments to season the broth and you add the meat ‘hot-pot’ style. It’s delicious!

They have an assortment of thick toast with toppings (sweet or savory) and cakes. Eruno is very happy about cake!

Too much socializing? Alice needed a bit of quiet time. Haha!

It was great to see everyone and catch up on stories, and pick each others brains for ideas about travel, food and doll hobby gossip. I hope to be able to see you soon before the craziness of Anime North is upon us!

Omake (Extra):
Since the February meetup was at Go For Tea too, the staff remember us. We racked up a big tab both times, we don’t leave a mess and tip nicely so they like us (which is good, since we like coming here too!) and now we are VIP’s!
