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
Had the opportunity to meet with some fellow DD owners earlier this week at the Ohayocon convention in Columbus, Ohio (Ohayocon, get it? ^^;).
We mainly went for the meet. In fact, only one person in our party actually purchased a convention badge since we arrived a bit late and the con itself was nearly over ^^; Continue reading 'Ohayocon Meet'»
For those that saw my last post, Yui’s Snow Day, know that although the shoot was successful, it also resulted in a injury to Yui… But thanks to a nearby friend (thanks Kevin!) with garage kit building skills and tools, Yui made a miraculous recovery ^^. And since several people were curious about the process, I documented it with photos at each step which I will be sharing in this post.
The damage. The shoulder joint peg had completely snapped off ;_; We’re about to fix it though! Continue reading 'How to repair a broken DD'»
We’ve had an abundance of snow here in Indiana for the past couple weeks (though it finally melted yesterday) and I made good use of the opportunity by taking Yui out for a day in the snow.
Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted ^^; Sorry, there has been a long series of distractions assaulting me and monopolizing all my time. But things are slowing down a bit so here is a status update, hooray!
