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.

(Note – May 30, 2014: I realized that this post has been in “Draft” format for over a year! Ooops! Since the weather was so poor this spring, maybe it was a good thing I delayed this post since I feel like I missed out on springtime this year. Enjoy these lovely photos!)
Hanami literally means “flower viewing” and although it traditionally applies to the spring viewing of cherry blossoms (sakura), it can also apply to plum blossoms (ume) or other flowering trees in the springtime. I had hoped to visit High Park this year, but alas this past winter was one of the coldest on record! The trees bloomed very late this year and didn’t last for long. Instead, I’m sharing these previously unseen photos from when PlasticFantastic and Sam came over to my house to hang out last spring, and we took some lovely photos with the flowering trees around my house during periods when the sun peeked out.
Here are Serena, Rin and Mio wearing in beautiful wa-loli dresses! Wa-loli is a genre of lolita fashion that combines traditional Japanese clothing styles with lolita elements.
Draping sleeves typical to kimono and yukata, an obi and a poofy skirt with a petticoat worn underneath are common in wa-loli style.
I’ve been meaning to post these pictures for a long time, but kept forgetting. Since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, it was appropriate to share them finally! Here is Sidonie as the Queen of Hearts! ♥

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!
Having taken some dolls out earlier last week to High Park for a traditional hanami outing, wearing pretty spring-themed yukata, I wanted to take some girls out for a more casual day in the park.
This is one of my favourite photos of the day – Rin, Serena, nkei’s Summer and MrCool’s Sawako relaxing in a beautiful sakura tree.
Summer is a DD Rise Kujikawa, but nkei has styled her so beautifully in soft pastel greens that she is like a beautiful faerie!
On the last weekend of April, the Dollfie Dream owners from the Toronto area got together for our monthly meet! The weather this spring has been unusually cold, which has slowed down the sakura trees in High Park so we had our meetup at Village by the Grange. We all met up for lunch at Manpuku Japanese Eatery before heading out to Grange Park to chill and take pictures.
Our theme for this meetup was “Spring Cleaning” so aprons and cute maids were abundant! Mmmm so much doll meat!
I’m glad that it was a beautiful day, I’ve really missed having outdoor meetups!
I brought Sidonie, wearing the adorable Royal Highness set by puppy52. This little apron and maid hat work very nicely with the outfit and Sid looks ready to lend a helping hand!
Last weekend a few of the Toronto-based Dollfie Dream owners met up for a small doll met, and we welcomed 3 new faces! AkaTG, Nurlindae and a friend of MrCool00236’s came to hang out with us. Since we were a small-ish group, we went to Café Princess and brought a few dolls with us! We had a loose theme of Springtime, Easter and St. Patrick’s Day so there were lots of cute outfits on the dolls!
We weren’t able to book the party room so we sat out front, and it was actually very nice since there was more natural light. These girl were early so they got set up first –
