DIY Dollfie Virgin-Killing Sweater

The Japanese otaku community is always coming with new cute/sexy outfit fetishes. In 2014, it was the keyhole turtleneck sweater, which I admittedly got for Arc to replace her normal turtleneck sweater. In 2015, it was the front zipper swimsuit though since I’m personally not a fan of one-piece swimsuits, I didn’t really take much interest. That was followed by the cat keyhole lingerie in 2016, which I would have immediately gotten Arc if the Volks DD body didn’t look so bleh in lingerie. The year 2017 has just started, but we’ve already gotten a new fetish outfit: the virgin-killing …

Anime Expo 2016 – Part 2/2

Note: This is part 2 of my Anime Expo blog post. See here for part 1   Anime Expo (AX) is a four-day anime convention held annually in Los Angeles, California. It is the largest anime convention in North America, with AX2016 attracting over 100,000 attendees (more than four times the attendance we had at Sakura-con 2016). I hadn’t attended Anime Expo since AX2011 (Mikunopolis LA), but this time it was announced that there would be a huge concert called Anisong World Matsuri featuring many popular Japanese anime music artists performing (such as JAM Project, T.M. Revolution, etc.) as well …

Re:Zero Rem Custom Dollfie Dream

Protecting the smile of best girl Rem… It’s been almost two and a half years since I entered the world of Dollfie Dream and started my first custom Dollfie project, Arcueid Brunestud. It would take me another 8 months before I finally completed her (during which I ended up adopting an official Volks Saber Lily), after which I decided that would be the end of it and I would live happily ever after. Or so I thought… While 2016 was a shitty year in various other areas, it was a decent one for anime. More Gundam, more One adaptations, some …

Hand-made Fate/Grand Order Cards (V2)

Earlier this year, I made a bunch of Fate/Grand Order cards on a whim to hand out to Fate cosplayers and F/GO players at Sakura-con 2016. Being a last-minute idea, they were cheaply made using simple sheets of paper and some packing tape. Despite this, people loved them and I quickly ran out before the end of the 3-day con. And so, for this upcoming Anime Expo 2016, however, I decided to make a second batch of cards, but in larger quantities and much higher quality. Me in my Male Protagonist (Gudao) cosplay holding up my Team Basaka. Except replaced …

Sakura-Con 2016

It’s that time of year again: Sakura-Con 2016! Sakura-Con is the largest anime convention in the north west, with over 20,000 attendees and held this year at the Washington State Convention Center (Seattle, Washington) between March 25-27th. This was my third year attending, having attended and blogged about both 2015 and 2014. This time around, I didn’t have any panel topics in mind so I just attended (once again) as volunteer staff this year for tournament gaming. The scheduling this year also wasn’t all that interesting so I spent most of my free time just wandering around looking for Fate …

[F/GO] All Servant Summoning and Final Ascension Lines (Fate/Grand Order)

Summoning and final ascension lines for all 91 currently available Servants in Fate/Grand Order (as of 2016/03/07). Mashu not included and missing 4th ascension line for Santa Saber Alter (3rd ascension shown instead). Recorded by Keripo using Mobizen (Android screen mirroring app) and OBS (Open Broadcasting Software). Screen mirroring connection was over Wi-Fi and upscaled from 720p, so the quality’s a bit low in some areas and audio is slightly delayed. Here’s the timestamps 0:09 アーラシュ / Arash 0:35 アステリオス / Asterios 1:00 アタランテ / Atalanta 1:18 アルジュナ / Arjuna 1:50 アルテラ / Attila 2:17 アルトリア・ペンドラゴン / Artoria Pendragon 2:42 …

Beginner’s Guide to Buying Dollfie Dream Stuff

Here’s a quick guide to getting started with buying stuff for your first (custom) Dollfie Dream. Wrote this up for a friend, might polish it up later if there’s interest. Arcueid obviously did some shopping last Christmas… Head mold This is arguably the most important part since it defines the shape of your character’s face. For pricing, you are best off going with standard head models. For anime style characters, the DDH07 or DDH09 heads are my recommendation. Note that they come unpainted. Buy from Volks store or second hand store or YAJ. Usually your second biggest cost next to …

Merry Xmas and Happy Birthday Arcueid

December 25th is known around the world as Christmas, a (once religious but now mainly commercial) holiday of joy and happiness. But you know what else gets celebrated on this day? Arcueid Brunestud’s (self-proclaimed) birthday! So why not celebrate both with a new photoshoot of Arcueid in a seductive Xmas outfit from Ageha Design? :3 Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/keripo/albums/72157660446872654 Figure.fm: http://www.figure.fm/en/post/56447/Merry+Xmas+and+Happy+Birthday+Arcueid.html DollfieDreams: http://www.dollfiedreams.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=13653 ~Keripo 277,006 total views, 9 views today
