Warm weather, nice green grass, and colorful flowers make photoshoots so much better!
Here are some pictures of Azone Happiness Clover Mocha (Winter Fairy Tales ver.), Dollfie Dream Kosmos, DD Akira, DD Haruka Amami, and Dearmine Chopin Bean.
I thought today would be a great day to add some pictures of various dolls! Hopefully I'll have some more time to do more updates soon, but for now I was able to take at least a few more pictures.
Sorry for the "OK" pictures, I didn't have a lot of options unfortunately for posing or choosing different clothes for these new heads as I am kind of limited on bodies. I currently need three more DD bodies to catch up to the number of heads I have waiting! Anyway, here are some pictures below of what I had arrive yesterday.
I was told that they are DDH-05, DDH-06, DDH-07 but I kind of question whether that is what they are. I know one or two are probably limited make up models from Volks which were customized. I'm not one hundred percent sure the head sculpts themselves aren't limited and with the heavy customization it was hard to tell, but that may have been correct. They seem to match up pretty well with those head numbers. Also in the lot was Haruka Amami from Idolmaster. Her head was customized too, but not to too harsh of an extent.
Note- The three heads on the blanket are the three heads I need bodies for. The bottom two heads are heads I already had on other dolls that I decided to switch out for now. The head on top is one I received recently.
Recently I was able to win five official Volks outfit sets from Y!Japan.
The sets I won include-
Nordic Chiffon Dress Set
Sweet Lacey Shawl Set
Kashukuru Dress Set
Pink Knit Dress Set
ToHeart2 Uniform Set
With a new Saber coming out via Volks lottery this month/early next year, of course I would find a Saber I can afford. This Saber Extra didn't come with anything in the way of default accessories or outfit, but the seller was awesome and she was a reasonable price in the U.S. How could I say no? That was my black Friday shopping!
I can't even begin to say how much I absolutely loved this seller. She was super awesome, including a hand written note, and a few extra things. I couldn't be more happy with this purchase despite the fact that I should be saving money for the upcoming lottery.
I'm thrilled to announce to everyone *even though I know that no one really cares* that I was a lucky lottery winner of Len - Volks very first DD boy. The DDS boy body is only available for Len currently, and Volks hasn't announced yet any future plans for boys. Will they? I'm sure, but for now it's kind of nice to have the only official boy!
Of course as I never have any patience whatsoever I was too excited to take pictures of opening the box or anything, so here are some pictures I took today! As you can probably tell, for reasons in which I have no idea why... I couldn't stop taking pictures today. I guess it was just a good Dollfie Dream picture day! ^.^
After a long search for Akira I have finally found an excellent deal on her thanks to Mandarake! They sold her as "Box damaged", "Lip peeling", and "stains" - all but calling her a junk doll. No pictures of the box, just full set and doll. Regardless I paid an awesome price.
Whatever the case I never feel bad about ordering from Mandarake. So far every time I've ordered something that they label as "junk" or "bad condition", I am delighted to find that when I get whatever it is I order it is actually in excellent condition. This was no exception. The box was included, and in good condition minus a few tiny dents here and there. Really I've gotten boxes from US sellers that were in worse shape. Lip peel was hardly noticeable, and only one tiny dot for a stain on the back of one foot. I can't complain!
Anyway, here are some pictures of Akira, Akira with Popplio (special thanks to my amazing boyfriend!), and Sakura Shinguji with Nia Teppelin's wig and sweater/shoe set.
It never fails to amaze me how much of a difference changing small things on dolls can make. For example, if I change a dolls eyes the doll can look totally different. Even though changing a dolls eyes are pretty easy, it's easier yet to just change an outfit or a wig. What a change an outfit or wig can make!
I took some new pictures of Aoi and Yukino after giving them a little bit of a make over, and I feel they look much better now. The clothes are from Mandarake, home made but very well done.
I got Sakura Shinguji quite some time ago, but haven't yet had the chance to post much. Unfortunately she didn't come with any of her default stuff besides eyes and box. Default and full set is extremely important to me whenever I buy anything, unless the price is right! I got Sakura for a very good price. I did find someone who would sell the full set to me, but currently I don't have the funds- and considering the seller wants more for the fullset than I paid for the doll, I'm a little hesitant.
Either way, she's in like new condition and I'm super excited to finally get to take some pictures. Someday I'll get some more DD clothes and be able to do actual photo-shoots and take more pictures of all of the DDs all around. I can't wait!
Here I will be posting fun photo shoots, whether it is new outfits on BJD or Nendoroids/Figma. It could be anything really!
