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 weekend a few of the local Dollfie Dream owners met up for lunch and a doll meetup. We had the optional theme of “Default Day” for the doll meet – so hopefully a few people would bring some of their girls in default outfit sets!
Here we have Meo’s Tamaki (wearing her default set!), kai-suteki’s Tai, PlasticFantastic’s custom HDD06 Madeleine and my Moe both wearing the Moe v.2 default outfit (yay twinsies!), PlasticFantastic’s White Christmas Alna in her default, T-Rho’s Maeve (Alna wearing her default outfit), my Sidonie (Saber Extra) in her steampunk outfit (sorry, I wasn’t about to bring her out in her Saber default outfit >__<“) and juu-yuki’s Sakura wearing Neris’ default outfit.
Sitting on the top row are Machiko’s Volks MSD Zephyria, PlasticFantastic’s Cirno and AgentPanda’s Penny!
With the addition of three new dolls to my doll family last week I felt it was time to take an updated photo of my doll family. Here are my girls having a welcoming party for Thaddeus, Siobhán and Sidonie!
My goodness how my collection grown in the past year and a half!
I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter holiday weekend. Here in Canada, it’s a 4-day weekend for most schools, businesses and shops. PlasticFantastic and Sam came over today to hang out, and a few photos came about.
Here’s Mélisande with a cute Easter basket that I made.
Well hello there little yellow chick! ^__^”
This basket was a gift for Puppy52. The Easter Bunny delivered it to her a bit early, but it’s better to be early than late!
PlasticFantastic’s Amber has a bunny in her basket. ^_^”
Médée looks super adorable in this bunny kigurumi!
Aerie as the Easter Bunny. With special appearance by Angry Bunny!
Happy Easter to all of my friends! ♥ (and if you don’t celebrate Easter, I hope you still have a lovely weekend! ^__^”)
It was a lovely day today and I invited PlasticFantastic, Sam, T-Rho and my sister, Machiko, to come over to hang out. PlasticFantastic brought her lovely Elle and Odette with her, and Machiko brought little Delilah. It turned into a fun gathering of dolly girls!
This is just a pre-cursor to a bigger doll meet-up of local DD owners tomorrow!
Here are Elle and Odette chilling out on the couch, with my little Médée hanging out. I’m not feeling these eyes for Médée at all, but hopefully she’ll get some nice new ones tomorrow!
Gabrielle and Aerie join in on the fun on the couch too!
Sam snapped this great profile shot of Gabrielle – I love her little ducky face!
Here are some rather amusing pictures of my cats, Charlie and Bubba, that Sam caught on camera.
We had fun chatting about dolls, work, lolita fashion, kitties, planning our Tokyo adventure and grabbed some sushi takeout for dinner. It was loads of fun – and there will be more DD action tomorrow!
Today is the new year in the lunar calendar, or commonly referred to as Chinese New Year. 2012 will ring in the Year of the Dragon, a very auspicious year. Lily, Moe and Aerie have dressed up in beautiful kimono to celebrate together!
Those of you who remember the arrival of my Dollfie Dream Moe may recall that straight out of the box there was a dilemma – she had 2 left feet! This prompted some joking between me and hubby that poor Moe was never intended to be a dancer >__<”
I’ve since remedied the foot issue – Moe has a right and a left foot now, but the mailman’s visit yesterday prompted me to give her an opportunity to shine! A number of weeks ago I ordered the new “Ballet” feet made by Taiwanese company Peapod Doll and they arrived yesterday.
Without further ado, here is Moe as the Swan Queen ~
