I’m so sorry for the lack of posts and updates! In addition to sorting out the mess from finishing up our renovation, my desktop computer died in mid-July >_<” I have had so many lovely photos from our doll meets and am only finally catching up on uploading them.
In mid-July we planned to meet up on the Toronto Islands for a lovely beach picnic, with special guest Otakusan167 visiting us too! However things don’t always go to plan. Otakusan167 had a family emergency so his travel plans changed and he wasn’t able to join us, and also the day turned out to be gray and rainy so we had to hide indoors at an alternate location. Luckily Marché is not too far away from the ferry terminal so we were able to regroup and meet there instead.
Despite the poor weather there was great turn-out and lots of beautiful dolls!
I met up with my cousin, her boyfriend, as well as fransgaard and GabrielVH this past weekend for lazy Sunday dim-sum at Ping Pong. I was a bit late since my flight was delayed but the point of lazy Sunday is taking things at a very slow pace. (At one point our food was taking a bit too long, and after we inquired about it we were offered a round of complimentary drinks!) After lunch Gabe and I went for a walk to try to find the bus stop made entirely of LEGO in front of Hamley’s toy store.
It was quite cleverly done!
Since Gabe and I both had DD’s with us, we went out to a nearby park to take a few photos while there was still sunlight.
I love being able to see my London friends on my layovers 🙂 but on this particular visit I was bringing home a very special parcel. Here’s Alice helping me out with it. Can you guess what’s inside? ^_~”

Our fabulously girly drinks from Ping Pong –
Hi everyone! The weather has finally warmed up so last weekend a few of the Toronto Dollfie Dream owners had a low-key little doll meet at High Park. I love having our outdoor meetups since it usually means lots of lovely photos of the dolls since we can move around a bit! It feels like ages since I’d last seen everyone so I spent most of my time hanging around and socializing while AlphaZ was the one taking most of the photos this time. Nurlindae knew of a great little spot in the park that was out of the way and perfect for us to settled down and be out of the way of prying eyes. The theme of this meet was “summer” – which basically meant anything goes! ^__~”
Since I’m still dealing with the mess from my renovation I only brought 2 girls with me – Alice and Gabi and I dressed them in pretty summery dresses
Even though AlphaZ was able to attend the January Dollfie Dream meetup in Toronto, it feels like I haven’t been at one in ages @__@” I’ve missed seeing everyone and their pretty dolls! Since the weather is still bitterly cold and gross we met at Go For Tea in Markham. The theme for this month’s meetup was “Spring, please come soon!” since March has almost finished and it is still snowy and cold. Most of the girls were dressed in hoodies, sweaters and other cute casual wear and some colourful chicks added a bit of colour to the group!
Alice wore a light sweater with a nice green coat on top. but she doesn’t seem amused with this bird on her head @_@”
I brought my newest girl, Alice Kuonji, with me to Vancouver for a short lunch-time meetup with puppy52. We met up at the Aberdeen Centre in Richmond for food and then took a few photos with the dolls. She brought Aki, Taiga and Ebisu.
Taiga is extremely unimpressed with Ebisu perching on her head >_>”
September was a very busy month! First of all special love ♥ and congratulations to PVCFantastic and DioptricStraw on their wedding day! We had some special guests in town to celebrate with them, and after the wedding festivities were over we had a doll meet so that TheBobness could hang out with some of our Toronto Dollfie Dream community. For this meet we tried a new venue: a lovely tea lounge in mid-town called T-Buds. I had heard lovely things about this place and they were able to accommodate our large group in their tea room, even if it was a bit cramped for all the dolls @__@”
The casual theme of the meetup was “Lolita” and it was wonderful to see everyone all dressed up!
