I managed to get my hands on the Volks Lady Wizard outfit (thanks Innocentsake! ♥) and the Lady Thief outfit earlier this summer, and decided to take a few photos using these awesome clothing sets! The overall look isn’t completely steampunk or medieval maidens but something in the middle – I hope you like!
I’m crazy about Alice’s face! She’s so pretty!
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!
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.
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.
Immediately after all the fun and crazy antics of Anime North, I went out for afternoon tea with PlasticFantastic, Meo, Machiko, AlphaZ and our friend Mahoro who was visiting us from Edmonton! Since this was rather improptu, there were only a few dollies in attendance. I brought Micaela (DD Aoko) out on her first outing, and Mahoro brought his custom Miku and a couple of his cute little girls: Mimi & Hanako.
Warning – lots of delicious food photos!
We went to one of my favourite spots in Toronto – the Red Tea Box and ordered a mix of tea bentos and regular menu items. This is the Assam Tonganagoan Tea Feature Bento – with mango-raspberry mousse almond cake; Lime-coconut Tart; Spiced shrimp, pumpkin & coconut crispy triangles; tilapia cakes with tumeric cauliflower pickles, sesame and peanuts.
Today Rin and Serena were having a relaxed afternoon playing with Médée. So many plushies!
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.
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!
