Marisa’s Day Out

Spring has finally come to Indiana but we’ve been getting rain almost none-stop for the past month so it’s been difficult to enjoy the outdoors.  Last week we finally had a decent weekend and I took Marisa out to take advantage of the brief break in the rain.

To celebrate the arrival of Spring, Marisa chose this brightly colored kimono to match the sunny weather.  This is actually an Azone outfit, intended for their 50cm line of dolls, so I wasn’t sure if it would fit a DDS. I’m glad I took the risk and bought the outfit as it fits really quite well on a 50cm DDS despite slight differences in proportions.

Mischievous or cute smile? ^^;

For these photos, we visited a local Indianapolis-area park which was very popular on this day, as many folks wanted to get out and enjoy the good weather while it lasted (the rain resumed the next day orz).  Got a few funny looks while photographing Marisa but ’tis OK ^^;

Was a bit windy on this weekend which made Marisa’s hair impossible to maintain ^^;

The kimono outfit also came with a cute hair ribbon but with the strong breeze it wouldn’t stay put xD

Also a small handbag for Marisa to stash her precious things.

Trying to get out of the open and windy field, we retreated to a quiet grove nearby.

Standing in a kimono and geta gets tiring after a while. Time for a break ^^

I also purchased a pair of Azone 50cm geta sandals but unfortunately they were too small.  Luckily, the sandals that came with the Volks Miko outfit worked perfectly for the outfit so Marisa did not have to go barefoot ^^.

Seems like the weather has been getting nicer the past few days.  Perhaps another photo shoot in the near future? ^^.  Hmmm, which outfit, I wonder… ;)

Anyway, thanks for viewing! ^^

    Nice shots, that kimono looks very cute on Marisa. ^^
    The wind seems to have been a challenge though indeed, perhaps have the wig sit a bit lower as she’s showing too much forehead now.

    • lol, thanks for the comment ^^;
      I don’t think she’s showing too much forehead but I guess that’s personal taste. Her bangs were just messy due to being blown around by the wind.

    • Yeah, I really like it too. I wasn’t sure how well it would fit since it was designed for Obitsu bodies but it works great with DDS ^^. Glad I took the risk. I purchased it from Hobby Search and it’s still in stock: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10132658
      If you want it, you better order before it goes out of stock! Azone stuff can be hard to track down after the retail supply runs out ^^;

    Gorgeous! I love the those little braids on her hair. Windblown effect is lovely as well.
