DD Meet in Chicago

By , September 14, 2011 11:53 pm

For me, this summer has been rather quiet for DD photography. Yes, Neris arrived a few months back, but I got distracted by video games, work, and RL and haven’t had a chance for much more than that. So when Tsunamidelta messaged me about a possible DD meet in Chicago, I happily agreed to attend. It was a small gathering with just me, Tsunami, Wolfheinrich, and Faustbane. But you don’t need a large group to have fun and we definitely had a good time with a weekend to enjoy good food, relaxing, and getting some great DD photos! ^^

We stayed at comfortable hotel not too far from downtown managed to capture some good photos of our DD girls right in the hotel lobby. Of course, we got some curious looks but most of the by-passers thought they were cute and a few folks commented positively about them.

I spotted this cute little outfit that Marisa is wearing on Yahoo! Japan Auctions and I just had to have it. Due to the bad USD/JPY exchange rate, I haven’t been using YJA much recently, but for this outfit I made an exception.  It’s a simple outfit with puffy shorts, a simple undershirt, the cape, and the the cutest part of it, the little blue cap.

I also brought along Neris. She hasn’t been seen since her arrival back in July and I was hoping to get to know her a bit more during this trip.

Everybody tries on swimsuits! xD

I have to say, with a different wig and a swimsuit on, she looks quite different and very cute!

The next morning we headed out to Chinatown with Wolfheinrich as our host. He was able to point out the better restaurants and we had a super delicious Chinese breakfast/lunch.

One of the more unusual dishes that we were served. Comes wrapped in a leaf and looks a bit odd but was quite good.

After breakfast we head out to a square in Chinatown that had statues of the zodiac characters.

And proceed to cause a scene by posing all the DDs on the statues ^^;

Took a short break for some drinks and almost caught a shot of the elusive Tsunamidelta ;)

We headed out to Navy Pier to try to get some more DD photos. Sadly, the weather suddenly went from being perfect to miserable in just a few minutes. I only managed to capture this shot before it started raining too heavily to take photos. We packed up and headed back to our car.

Was raining on and off throughout the rest of the day. When it did clear up and stopped raining, we tried to get some photos but none of the breaks lasted long enough to do much >_<. So we packed up and drove back to Wolf’s place where we would try one last time…

Finally, we managed to get a few more photos! We found this interesting spot underneath a rusted, old railroad bridge. It was in desperate need of repair but also provided a great backdrop for a few more photos as the end of the day neared and the sun dropped to the horizon. Changed Marisa into this adorable Iplehouse outfit which is one of my favorites. Gives a sassy-girl sort of look ;)

Nia, on the other hand, was still adorably sweet in this outfit with Alna’s jacket.

And that’s the end of our Chicago DD meet! Despite the poor weather on Saturday, we still managed to get a lot of nice photos. Plus, we ate great food the whole weekend and just had a good time. Maybe we’ll do this again next year ^^. And concerning this blog, it’s been quiet, hasn’t it? Don’t worry, I’ve got a few posts lined up soon so stay tuned for some figure reviews!

    Nice DD photos, looks like a fun meet. Love that last location, fab background! ^^

    Is your Neris equipped with a DDS/DDIII body?
    Smithy´s last post… Memories of summer

    • Yeah, that last location turned out to be really great. It was kind of our last resort too due to the weather xD
      Neris was using Marisa’s DDS body for this weekend. I tend to swap bodies around a lot, it just happened to turn out that way this time ^^;

    Too bad the weather wasn’t cooperating but it was a great weekend we spent together~~

    I must admit…I love the one piece white swimsuit with that Yellow sweatshirt. When I’m not moving around Beato she chills out on my old American Girl Doll bed. I simply must buy her a stand soon!

    • Oh, yeah, that’s Tsunamidelta’s Yuki. Not sure where he got the swimsuit or jacket but they are quite cute together ^^
      I recommend DollfieWorld’s stands, but as I’m sure you know, they can be hard to get a hold of ^^;

    Ah nice pics, I like the slightly modded Neris, she looks very pretty with the long hair.

    At first I couldn’t recognize Marisa, she wears a very nice outfit. Does the blonde Yuki also belong to you? she’s lovely ^-^
