Today, a long-awaited package finally arrived in my possession. Way back in September, I placed a pre-order for Marisa Kirisame, one of the two Touhou girls debuting in the new Volks Dollfie Dream Sister body. Unfortunately, these Touhou girls were Japan-only releases but I was quite taken with the Marisa previews (and I like her character :3) so I tried something new and placed an order directly on the Volks Japan site using a Tenso address. The process went surprisingly well given that I used a US credit card in a Japanese ordering system and I wasn’t sure if they’d accept the Tenso address. But as you can see, it all worked out in the end! I am happy to present Marisa, my second full Dollfie Dream :D
Marisa arrives in her Volks-issued traveling “accommodations”. Indiana is a long way from Japan so I’m sure she was ready to get out of the box.
“Look, they even tied me down!”
“Ahhh, free at last! Well, what do we have here? Who are you!?” I tried to explain I was her new owner, but she didn’t like the idea of that very much…
“Whatever, let’s see what else is in this box!”
“Ahh! My clothes, broom, and what’s this… my hair!?”
We took stock of all the items that shipped along with Marisa. Her favorite outfit was luckily among her belongings: undershirt, bloomers, underskirt, black dress and vest, white apron, white socks (with black ribbons), shoes, and her witch’s hat. Also included was her riding broom and her wig (she still doesn’t know how she lost her hair in the first place). Once we confirmed she had all her belongings, she decided it was time to get dressed.
“Well, I suppose I can’t go around naked. No peeking!”
“You’re not looking, are you?”
“Ahhhh, you looked! How embarrassing >///<”
“Fine, just help me finish…”
“What? You weren’t expecting shimapan, were you?”
“I have to look like a proper witch, you know.”
“There we go, that’s most of it!”
“Just need to put on the apron… and finished!”
“Do you like my socks? They even have little black ribbons on them ^^.”
“Ah, with my hair back (!) and my broom in hand, I finally feel back to normal.”
“Hey, what’s that light?”
“Have you been taking pictures this whole time!?”
“F-Fine, I’ll pose just this once since it’s for you…”
“L-like this? You’re so demanding!”
“I’m not a cat, you know…”
“This is too embarrassing! I’m done!”
I tried to get her to take a few more pictures, but she would have none of it. I hope you enjoy the few I managed to get. Maybe I can convince her to take a few more later ^^;
Thanks for visiting!
Thanks, quite liking her so far :D
Cool it worked out in the end with Tenso. How is the DDS body feeling like?
The joints feel a bit stiffer which is good since it will allow her to keep her pose better. I will try to do a more thorough comparison to DDII soon.
Congrats, she is really cute. I’m not familiar with Touhou (yet) but she tempted me when she was announced, even though I didn’t know that character. She is very cute and with the new DDS body, it was hard to pass on.
So, did you end up ordering her? ;)
Nice! Great to see your DDS Marisa arrived safe and sound. She’s quite a cute DD and I like her face with that slightly mischievous cat-like smile. ^^
From your photos can also see that the DDS body is quite different from DDII/DDDy, the lower arm covering vinyl is also differently shaped piece compared to the DDII/DDDy, looks like they’ll have little in common with DDII/DDDy.
Can’t wait for my DDS body to arrive (but it’ll be some time with shipping).
Yes, the elbow joint in particular has been completely redesigned and allows a much greater range of movement. The knee joints are also improved. Going to try to do a more thorough DDS/DDII comparison post soon ^^;
Grats! I wanted to order the Beatrice DD but I don’t want to have staining issues :( because I’d love to have her in her stock a lot of the time.
Is her default outfit lined with white material underneath? Volks does a decent job of that most of the time. Even if it’s not, staining can usually be fixed with a bit of patience ^^
Actually…I’ve been talking with Wolf. And I may have been over worried on the issue :) maybe I’ll join you as a DD owner. This week I’m going to be able to pay off my car and credit card…what better way to celebrate than to try and win the Beatrice lottery? :)
Oh, that sounds like a good way to celebrate ;)
I’ve had a few stains on Yui but I’ve been able to remove them all with the common 10% benzoyl peroxide cream trick.
Anyway, I hope you decide to go for Beatrice ^^ I don’t think you’d regret it!
I’m going for her, lets hope I win! If not I’ll have to wait for another DD release that matches up with my desires and try again.
Awesome! From the preview pics, she seems to have pretty bold/assertive look to her. Also nice eyes ^^. If that’s your preference ;)
