Welcome Home Dollfie Dream Alice Kuonji!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve welcomed a new doll into the family, but I’ve been patiently paying for my newest doll on layaway for the past 6 months. Moe-chan was first to greet the postman so she brought the box into our room, where Micaela, Médée and Serena were also hanging out.

The shipping box looks so small! It was a snug fit but with Micaela’s help, Moe was able to unpack it! Here is the box for Alice Kuonji – one of the standard yellow Dollfie Dream boxes!

Welcome Home Dollfie Dream Aoko Aozaki!

Today Rin and Serena were having a relaxed afternoon playing with Médée. So many plushies!

Welcome home Aoko!

Suddenly Gabi appeared out of nowhere with a big package that the postman just delivered! Angry Bunny was suspicious so he came out to investigate too.

Welcome home Aoko!

Gabi whipped open the box and peeled back the protective layer of bubble wrap to check out what was inside. I recognize that distinctive yellow box!

Welcome home Aoko!

Welcome Home Dollfie Dream Sakura Matou!

Today a few of my girls helped me to formally welcome home the newest Dollfie Dream the family! Aerie, Serena, Lily, Rin and Médée would like to introduce Sakura Matou!

I’m very excited to have Rin Tohsaka’s sister from Fate/Stay Night, but she is also Serena’s sister since I adopted her from my late friend D.ark. I’m very honoured to be able to give this pretty girl a loving new home.

Welcome Home Annalise d’Archangeli (Dollfie Dream Rise Kujikawa)

This afternoon Serena, Rin and Médée were playing with the new London skyline blocks that I bought for them. This basically consisted of Médée ordering Serena about, and Rin supervising! >__<”

Suddenly Angry Bunny hopped in the room with some news.

Dollfie Dream Natsuki v. 2!

Volks recently re-released one of their popular Dollfie Dreams from the Akihabara Girls series – Natsuki! I entered the lottery for her on a complete whim and was completely shocked when I won! 0__0″ I’ve been known to have horrible luck with lotteries and to win was very exciting! As much as I don’t like splitting up full sets, I really wasn’t interested in keeping Natsuki since I already had her twin sister, Moe. Luckily, some friends in the hobby purchased the items I wasn’t interested in.

Natsuki arrived today, and I took a few photos of her box opening since I had to check that everything was ok.

Rin was taking advantage of the nice weather today to take some photos of Gabrielle and Moe.

What Hinata Came Home To . . . (Welcome Home DD Rin Tohsaka!)

This past Thursday evening I met up with some Japanophile friends for dinner in London, UK. Fransgaard, Jezatron, GabrielVH, CookieDude_2332, UiNeonskittles and I met up at a fantastic sushi restaurant in Camden called Asakusa. I had been hoping to take time to fly to London in June to attend the memorial doll meetup for our late friend D.ark Dollhouse, but circumstances were against me and I couldn’t get the time off work. It was really nice to just hang out with these guys again. Gabe and I had brought a couple of DD’s with us but the restaurant was so crowded and busy that it didn’t seem appropriate to bring out our girls. Instead, Mr. Snuggles popped out to visit –

Hinata and Mr. Snuggles settled in for a good nights rest before traveling home (in my suitcase >__<“)

When Hinata woke up, she was already home! She slept the whole way home from London!

It’s a boy! It’s a boy! Welcome home Thaddeus d’Archangeli

It’s been a very busy week in the Archangeli household! A few months ago, I started a layaway purchase for one of my dream dolls – a Volks Yukinojo Sawaragi and he finally arrived today! Gabrielle was up early and noticed this big box sitting in the hallway. Angry Bunny wasn’t amused since it was in his way!
1 - Hey Angry Bunny! What's this big box doing here?

Gabi being a good little girl moved the big box into the room so that it was out of the way, and there was more space to open it.
2 - Let's move it over to the bigger part of the room
