Video: Live staining demonstration!

Hi friends! This is kind of a follow up to the Stain Treatment video that I made a few months ago. I am going to demonstrate how fast and horrible staining can occur! T___T”

I’m using Sasara Kusugawa (version 1)’s default outfit, which is a notorious and known stain monster.

I always take very good care of my dolls and this “experiment” was the first time I’ve ever had anything stained so much and so intensely. (In order for the stains to show up on video clearly they actually look much worse in person T__T”) I should mention that I haven’t washed or soaked either the Saber Maid or Sasara’s outfits because they are known to continually leech black dye even after repeated washings and it will discolour the white parts of the outfit and give them a bluish tint. If you own these either of these outfits, you’re welcome to wash them but I’ve made the choice not to because I’d rather keep the outfits pristine in case I decide to sell them someday.

I’ve started filming the [Before] part of the stain removal so you can see how effective the Volks Dream Rescue cream is and I’ll post the results in a couple of days.

Err…. enjoy? *cringe*

Dec. 10, 2015 – Update:

Here’s the video showing the stain treatment using the Dream Rescue cream. It’s not a miracle product, but it does work very well.

Fashion Friday: “Her Royal Highness” Hinata

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!

Casual Portraits

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!

Lily, Annalise & Médée on VolksUSA Blog!

It’s hard to believe that November has come and gone. It’s been an amazing month – I had the chance to meet lots of new friends in the Dollfie Dream community across oceans, I celebrated my birthday in London and before the the craziness of December and the holiday season comes upon us, I just wanted to look back at the beautiful autumn months with a few photos that were featured on the VolksUSA blog today. ^___^”

Lily and Médée Out for a Stroll

In other news, the Volks Dollfie Dream Xenosaga pre-order project for KOS-MOS and M.O.M.O. has opened and will be running until January 20, 2013. I’ve already placed my order – and advise anyone else that’s interested to do so too, this is a good opportunity to get a beautiful Dollfie Dream without having to contend with lotteries!

Autumn Colours

The weather has started to turn cold and the air is getting crisp now that we’re in the middle of Autumn in Canada. This is one of my favourite times of of the year because the leaves on the trees start to turn colors before they fall and it’s very beautiful. There are some lovely old trees in my neighbourhood so I don’t have to go very far to enjoy the beautiful autumn foliage.

I’ve been waiting for the right weather so that one of my girls could wear this adorable coat – and Annalise was the lucky girl to wear it out today! Doesn’t she look lovely?

The falling leaves are very pretty and all the shades of red, yellow and orange are stunning.

Lily took little Médée out for a stroll to enjoy the pretty trees.

The days are also starting to get shorter – I’m noticing that the sun is starting to set earlier now.

I’m enjoying this beautiful weather while it lasts, because soon it will be too cold to take lovely outdoor photos! >__<”

Fashion Friday: Ruby & Sapphire

I’ve been meaning to make these Fashion Friday posts more regular, but the last one was months ago! >__<” I guess better late than never? Here are the lovely Sidonie and Lily showing off a couple of beautiful dresses from Volks.

Sidonie & Lily
They are the Night Blue Dress (released November 2011) and Wine Red Party Dress (released June 2012) and although they are fancy cocktail dresses they are well suited to a warm summer’s evening party.

The beautiful red satin of this dress drapes beautifully on Sidonie and looks so elegant. The hemline is asymmetrical giving the dress a modern twist. The inside of the bodice and the straps are lined in white to prevent staining on the doll, but the lower part of the bodice isn’t – which I thought was a silly oversight.
