Happy New Year Friends! I have some catching up to do on my blog, which I hope to do in the next few days ^__^” My first little doll meet this year was in sunny Hong Kong! The weather was such a nice change from the harsh winter that I’ve been experiencing this year in Toronto. I met up with XOHimitsuOX and we went to a beautiful park in Sha Tin to take pictures of a couple of our girls. I didn’t bring my DSLR with me as it’s too heavy to bring for such a short trip overseas, so I only had my iPhone. I’m rather surprised how well some of these photos turned out!
As you can see, I dressed Alice for the arctic weather – haha! She’s so overdressed, but by Hong Kong standards it was a nice “autumn” day.
Saber onee-chan is so tall!
I braved the rain and heat this summer and met up with some DD owner friends in Hong Kong for a couple of little doll meets! The most recent was the last weekend of August where I met up with Q, Stepswalker, TonyBSD and XOHimitsuOX at the Charlie Brown Café in Tsim Tsa Tsui. The café was a very relaxed place and we were able to hang out without feeling rushed. We sat in a big booth area that had ample space for the dolls to hang out!

The café was fairly quiet when we arrived, but it filled up over the couple of hours we were there. Here’s Chef Charlie Brown to greet the guests:
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! ^__~”
Earlier this week I was in Hong Kong for work, and through the magic of Twitter, I managed to meet up up with a couple of Dollfie Dream owners: @quentinlau and @Maqywhaq. In my jet-lagged state I forgot my camera in my hotel, so iPhone photos will have to suffice! >;_<;" Sorry!
I brought Hinata with me because she was the only DD dressed in "casual" clothes (you'll see why in a few days) and Quentin brought his awesome Black Rock Shooter custom made by SQ-Labs!
It was so cool to get to see her in person, and study how she was put together. So many subtle details that went into her and it was really interesting to study them, from a technical point of view after encountering some interesting obstacles in making my KOS-MOS custom DD.
