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!
Last Friday afternoon I met up with Hong Kong-based Dollfie Dream owners SenorQuentinos, Stepswalker, TonyBSD and XOHimitsuOX for a small meetup at a maid café in Mong Kok area. We went to the Café Maid Dreamin’ Akiba to hang out, have dinner and chat – and of course a few very pretty Dollfie’s came along too!
XOHimitsuOX brought his sassy Alna out, I brought my most-travelled little DD – Gabrielle, TonyBSD brought adorable Mashiro, Stepswalker brought beautiful Tamaki and Q brought his awesome Black Rock Shooter custom DD. Since it was also Easter weekend, I brought little chocolate bunnies for everyone as gifts, but they ended up as photo props instead! ^__~”
Since I was working on Christmas I wanted to bring a bit of home with me, since it’s never fun being far from home during the holidays, when everyone else is celebrating with friends and family. Since I was in Mainz, Germany, I brought Gabrielle with me since it’s kind of her Vaterland ^__~” (I’ve always thought that her DDS Akira default outfit was very German looking). My original plan was to dress her up in her default outfit but I really didn’t like it AT ALL and couldn’t change her out of it fast enough! So instead she dressed for a chilly winter day!
Here’s Gabi on Ludwigstraße, with a beautiful Christmas Tree set up in the plaza in front of the Theatre. Behind is the St. Martin’s Dom –
(I got lots of weird stares whenever I pulled Gabi out of my tote bag for pictures @__@” It’s not so bad when I’m with a group but in a foreign country it was quite awkward >__<" )
A couple of weeks ago, several Dollfie Dream owners in Toronto got together for our last big meetup of the year! The theme was “Fancy Holiday” dress so everyone came dressed to the nines!
The weather has gotten colder so it wasn’t practical to have an outdoors meetup, so our group went back to Café Princess to enjoy cakes, desserts and hang out!
Last Saturday some members of the local Dollfie Dream community got together for a nice afternoon out with our dolls! We met for lunch downtown at the Marché restaurant and there was a wonderful gathering of beautiful dolls! This is an early group shot – a few girls came later ^__^”
I guess I’ll start by introducing some of these lovely girls!
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.
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!
