Hot summer days make for great casual and lazy doll meets outside! Originally we wanted to have another doll picnic down on Ward Island, but we found out a couple of days beforehand that there were a lot of things happening downtown this weekend and on the islands that would have made conditions less than ideal for doll meet, so we picked a midtown location – Edward Gardens – for our gathering.
This was one of the hottest weeks we’ve had this summer, and the heat killed my motivation to take photos, so I apologize for fewer number of photos than usual from this meet >__<”
To continue my review of the Tenshi-no-Koromo outfits that were released a few weeks ago at the Osaka 7 DP, today I’ll review the Argyle Cardigan Set (DDTK-180). This was a very popular item from the Osaka 7 DP because it is very feminine and made of light-colours and has virtually no risk of staining a Dollfie Dream. Here’s Aerie wearing this pretty outfit set –
The cardigan is a nice quality knit and I was surprised to see that the 2 buttons are functional! I was expecting them to be decorative only, with a hidden snap behind them. There is a reinforced edge and white lining on the inside of where the buttons and button-holes are. If you really don’t like dealing with buttons, it is possible to put the cardigan on without unbuttoning the front, but you’ll need to remove the hands from your DD in order to fit through the sleeves. The way that the cardigan is shaped lays very nicely over the back of the skirt without any bunching.
Time to showcase another lovely outfits that I’ve recently acquired! This is this gorgeous custom set called “Your Royal Highness” created by Puppy52! I fell in love with the gorgeous print of the skirt and knew that I had to have this set – and most of the pieces are sized for the DDdy/DDdy3 body, which can be hard to find clothing for.
It arrived in a beautiful box and Hinata was very excited to receive this present! What can be inside?
Alright, I’ll be honest, we were both super excited to open up the package so I forgot to take a photo of all the items inside, but here’s Puppy52’s photo from her blog –
Puppy52 knew that this would be a gift for Hinata (since she’s my only DDdy! Hehehe!) and drew this beautiful picture of her! It’s so gorgeous!! *___* Thank you!
I love how the jeans hug the DDdy3’s curves! Puppy52 omitted the belt loops on these capri jeans so there is less bulk at the waistband when tops are worn loosely over top of them.
There are so many pieces that Hinata would look a bit silly wearing them all at once, so Serena is here to help model too!
(Note: Fur stole on Serena by Volks)
This skirt is designed to fit on all Dollfie Dream body types and it’s so pretty! Hinata couldn’t let Serena walk away with it, so here she is modelling it with some cute coordinating stockings. Hinata is showing off a beautiful ‘Red Wine’ coloured wig to coordinate with this outfit set – do you like it on her?
I’m thrilled to own this beautiful set! Puppy52 has just listed a new one-off set for sale as well – details are on her blog. If you like it, please support her wonderful work!

I had a short photo session with a few of my girls this morning since the sun was shining and I was awake! (Believe me, after sleeping most of January away, this was quite something!) The first order of business was to take a new photo for my website banner – I hope you guys like it! I went with a soft pink wardrobe theme since Valentine’s Day is coming up ^__^” ♥
In a few days it will be Lily’s 2nd birthday! What better way to celebrate than with a few lovely casual portraits of my first Dollfie Dream!
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.
Last Saturday morning I met up with fellow Dollfie Dream owners Innocentsaké, her husband David, BerzerkFuryZero, Kenny_Ngyuen and Vicky for breakfast in Torrance, California. I was in Los Angeles for a very short layover, but it was great that everyone was able to make time to come hang out!
Here are InnocentSaké’s Momoko (Volks pre-painted DDH-06), my Aerie, BerzerkFuryZero’s Shino (custom DDH-04) and Kiriha, my Rin and Vicky’s Cirno hanging out at a bus stop in “London” ! ^__^”
First things first – fuelling up! We had a gluttonous breakfast at Polly’s Pies, and then went over to the Volks USA showroom. Continue reading
I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter holiday weekend. Here in Canada, it’s a 4-day weekend for most schools, businesses and shops. PlasticFantastic and Sam came over today to hang out, and a few photos came about.
Here’s Mélisande with a cute Easter basket that I made.
Well hello there little yellow chick! ^__^”
This basket was a gift for Puppy52. The Easter Bunny delivered it to her a bit early, but it’s better to be early than late!
PlasticFantastic’s Amber has a bunny in her basket. ^_^”
Médée looks super adorable in this bunny kigurumi!
Aerie as the Easter Bunny. With special appearance by Angry Bunny!
Happy Easter to all of my friends! ♥ (and if you don’t celebrate Easter, I hope you still have a lovely weekend! ^__^”)
A few of the Toronto-area based Dollfie Dream owners got together last week and had another meetup at Café Princess to enjoy each others company and stuff our faces on yummy cake! It was an interesting challenge to get all the dolls together for a group photo, but we managed! Here they all are –
We had quite the turn out! In the back row we have my Aerie, di-chan123’s Yami piggybacking on her custom Haruhi, jun97’s Ryoko who is visiting T-Rho, PlasticFantastic’s Asuka and nkei’s new Beatrice. In the middle row is PF’s Madeleine (Maddy), my Médée, Gabrielle and PF’s Yoko; and in the front row is PF’s Elle hugging Machiko’s Lareine, juu-yuki’s Airi (Rina), Machiko’s Delilah, and kai-suteki’s custom girl Tai.
Today is the new year in the lunar calendar, or commonly referred to as Chinese New Year. 2012 will ring in the Year of the Dragon, a very auspicious year. Lily, Moe and Aerie have dressed up in beautiful kimono to celebrate together!
