In the fall of 2009 I made my very first trip to Japan. Since I had never been, I never really knew what to expect. There was so much to see, so many things to experience, and most of all, SO MANY THINGS TO BUY! I didn’t have any expectations of going doll shopping or bringing one home, so what happened next was completely unplanned. After picking up a fair amount of figures from various stores, I made my way to Nakano Broadway, where my second doll was waiting for me.
A couple weekends ago, we went to IKEA with the mission of obtaining some new display cases and lighting. $350 later, we ended up with new display cases, lighting, and pieces for upgrading the doll display area! XD
Poor Yoko, she must have felt terribly neglected since Rin seems to get the preferential treatment. She gets all the nice outfits, gets to go to conventions, and has even been to the garden twice! Well, the streak ended this weekend as Yoko finally got the chance to go out! Equipped with a new set of shoes from Mimi Woo, a pair of jeans from Mai Little Alien, and a top from Dark Dollhouse, she was ready to go out!
And here she is! It was a lovely day out, with the exception of the humidity. Yoko didn’t seem to mind though, she was outside!
I’ve had a rash of Dollfie related updates lately and today will be no exception! After several months of waiting, Sakura has arrived at my home! Dressing Dollfies has become somewhat second nature to me by now, as has taking pictures of them in public places. I’m not sure whether or not to be happy about that or to be worried… ^.^;;
Isn’t she cute? The thing that took the most time was getting the wig on. It was hard getting it on in a place where her hair wasn’t hanging in front of her eyes. It was also the first time I’d used a silicone wig cap instead of a cloth one, so it took lots of adjustment to get everything in the right place!
Here we go! The UPS carrier dropped off a box on my doorstep today, I wonder where it’s from and what’s inside?
A close up on the shipping label should reveal some clues…
This could only mean one thing. Haruka’s head, body, and eyes have arrived! After getting my work done for the day, it was time to break the box open and check out the contents.
Today the first pieces of Haruka’s ensemble arrived on my doorstep. What does all this stuff look like? Read on!
I came home the other day to find a package in my mailbox from the UK. Finally, some more clothing for Yoko and Rin had arrived! The set was made by the wonderful webmaster over at Dark Dolllhouse. The set is called Candy Dots (for good reason, I think) and is the first “custom” outfit I bought!
Since Rin has pretty much gotten all the attention lately in terms of fancy outfits, Yoko decided to steal the set for herself!
Today, a new item showed up in my mailbox. Being the curious girls that they are, Yoko and Rin decided to open up the package and check out what it was… What could this mysterious object be?
I came home today to find a box from VolksUSA on my porch. Yoko’s new outfit has arrived! She seemed pretty happy to have something new to wear and was eager to try it out. Until now, she only had her default combat outfit and her swimwear to trot around in. How would she look as a sexy demon girl, I wonder? Warning, images below may contain extremely cute and slightly risqué poses. You have been warned!
First things first, we had to unpack everything and lay it out. Be sure to read on!
Since I only talked about Yoko last week, I figured I’d give the new Figma arrivals some time in the spotlight.
The latest addition to the family include the Summer uniform versions of Kagami, Tsukasa, and Miyuki. They’d arrived from AmiAmi, “The biggest internet FIGURE shop in Japan.”
