Sakura-Con 2014

Last weekend was Sakura-Con 2014, the biggest anime convention in the north-west. The convention is pretty big with over 25,000 attendees this year and was the biggest I’ve ever been to since Anime Expo 2011. It was also the first time I was attending an anime con with friends also interested in anime (including OhnoRaptors and Tsukikira), which made it a lot more fun since I wasn’t always the only person excited to see stuff. Attended a few of panels, including “A Helpful Guide to Anime Figure Collecting”, “Are We Live? The iDOLMA$TER!”, “Cosplay Skit Contest”, and “Lesbian-Themed Anime”. Spent …

Arcueid Brunestud V1 Custom Dollfie Dream

Could this be the True Ending? Intro A while back, following my second Japan trip, I ventured into the world of Dollfie Dreams and created my very first custom DD, Arcueid V0. It was “V0” because at that time, she was created using only standard/unremarkable parts that you can easily pick up online through web stores or hunt down through eBay/Yahoo Auctions Japan. While Arcueid V0 was pretty good, she wasn’t perfect enough. And so I went on a quest to complete V1. Ideally, V1 would include a custom faceup, custom eyes, more stylized wig, and a proper skirt. A …

Volks SD Bag + Saddle Stand Type C

So a while back, after adopting the elegant Saber Lily, I went and ordered a Volks SD Carrying Case (Black Diamond) and a Saddle Stand Type C (Metal). The carrying case was so I could carry both my Dollfies in (an upgrade from the thinner CoolCat bag), and the stand was so I could properly pose Saber Lily in the Distant Avalon pose (the plastic DD stand I had worked but was unstable and Saber Lily would easily fall over) Overall, the bag was very nice and spatious and I was able to snuggly fit both my Dollfies in (Saber …

Saber Lily at Botanic Garden

After my first photoshoot with Saber Lily, I really wanted to take her out for an outdoor photoshoot. So, while the weather was still nice, I brought Lily to a local botanic garden for her very first doll meet, with OhnoRaptor‘s Airy and jadepixel‘s Mariko. Enjoy the photos! ^_^ 5,397 total views, 1 views today

Saber Lily DD Photoshoot

For the full Saber Lily DD unboxing and review, see my previous post Saber Lily, the Princess of Knights In between unboxing and putting together Saber Lily (see link above), I took some time to take nice, clean pictures of her in her various outfit. For some of the pictures, I tried to copy various poses from the pamphlet or PVC figures of Saber Lily. For others, OhnoRaptors help out. Here they are, enjoy! Lingerie Outfit Saber Lily, showing off her sexy underwear. Elegant white stockings with patterned frills and a garterbelt strap Not all that much a fan of …

Sanding down Dollfie Dream busts *NSFW*

NSFW warning: This post contains photos of nude Dollfie Dream parts. A while back when I was photographing V0 of my custom Arcueid Brunestud Dollfie Dream, I quickly noted something bothering me when I was reviewing the photos. Something that stood out. Literally. That something was the pointy nipples of the DD L bust. Like in this photo: For a modest character with a modest outfit like Arcueid, the overly-pointy and obvious nipples looked completely out of place. I remember reading a tutorial written a while back by Archangeli about sanding down the nipples, so I decided to try it …

Comparison between L Bust and L Shapely Bust *NSFW*

NSFW warning: This post contains photos of nude Dollfie Dream parts. For the past few months I’ve been working on perfecting my custom Arcueid Brunestud Dollfie Dream. I started off with a standard L bust from DDIII Aoi Ver. 2 but after looking at some photos and chatting with jadepixel, I decided to go ahead and order an L shapely bust. The result was quite nice. Even though Arcueid doesn’t show cleavage, the firmer-looking, more “pushed-together” shape of the L Shapely bust better fits her body shape. Since Arc’s DDH-07 head is currently still being worked on by Shailara and …

Uncanny Dreams 2013

Just came back from Uncanny Dreams in Seattle, my very first doll convention since I became a Dollfie Dream owner. Was a bit smaller than I expected (having only attended anime cons before), but was still pretty interesting. There were only three Dollfie Dream owners there, and I’m pretty sure I was the only guy doll owner there too… orz 4,553 total views, 1 views today

Moving into the new place

So right after my Japan trip I actually had to start packing to move to a new place. The bad news was that I had some heavy Detolfs and a few hundred figures to box up and move. The good news was that the new place was right across the street and much bigger (aka more display space!) Here’s some pictures I took of the process. Still not completely done tidying up my new place yet (let alone finish unpacking all the figures), so expect a more organized, complete “room tour” blog post down the road. One last photo of …

Arcueid Brunestud V0 Custom Dollfie Dream

So a while back before I left for my Japan trip, I decided on whim to try to create a custom Dollfie Dream. Intro: Before, I really didn’t have much interest in DDs. To me, they were just really big and expensive dolls, kinda like large figmas but with clothing. Apart from my TYPE-MOON collection, I mainly only collect gunpla (because I’m a huge Gundam fanboy and like building stuff) and PVC figures (because the artistic side of my strongly appreciates the sculpting). That was until I came across this unknown image: . Being a huge Arcueid fan (Arc is …
