Dollfie Dream Monthly Meetup in Toronto – March 22, 2014

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!

The Kyoto Garden in Holland Park (Dollfie Dream Meetup: London, UK – July 20, 2013)

Last weekend I was in London, England, and made plans with Jezatron, GabrielVH, bethykins and fransgaard for little doll meet. However, my job comes with it’s own set of challenges and things can change in a split second – last Friday there were some very heavy thunderstorms over Toronto, most of Southern Ontario and New York @__@” and as a result I ended up being delayed a few hours. I was super late to meet up with everyone (sorry!!! >__<“) but at least the weather in London cooperated and it was a perfect day. Rather than one of the big central parks in the city, we chose to meet up at the Kyoto Garden inside Holland Park and it was a beautiful place.

Here are the dolls all ready for a nice afternoon picnic!

Left to right are Bethykin’s Freya (DD Moe) and Sa-Chan (DD Sakuno), Jezatron’s Kanu Unchou, GabrielVH’s Sakura Matou, my Serena (DD Yuki Morikawa), Beth’s Yuki (DDH-06) and Jez’s Ryomou.

I wanted to bring Serena back to the UK as a belated birthday trip for her, it’s been just over a year since I adopted her into my doll family. I dressed her up on Thursday afternoon and packed her into my doll carrier so imagine my surprise when Gabe dressed Sakura in a coordinating outfit! This was totally unplanned!

Review: Volks Sailor Tulle Skirt Set

A quick post today to review one of the newly released Volks outfits from the Osaka 7 Doll Party (Dolpa)! I managed to secure several of the outfits released at this event, and I’ll try to review them all promptly so that anyone who likes them can try to obtain them from Volks USA’s after-event in a few months time.

This is the Sailor Tulle Skirt set (DDTK-178) (which at the moment is still in stock on the Volks International web store!) and it features a zip-front blazer, a tank top, skirt and thigh-high socks.

This outfit is designed to fit Dollfie Dreams with either small or medium bust, and here is Sakura modelling it.
