My Growing Dollfie Family

Recommended Posts

I need to get back into doll photography.

It's dark now and these photos are taken with an ancient Canon G10 but I really love the colour accent feature this camera has.

Anyway, this is DDS Uzuki Shimamura in her school outfit. I was fortunate to acquire both her and this alternative outfit or hers in a single Mandarake order.

Also I've heard on here that the Volks blue school bag also pictured here has become a bit of a grail. I acquired it at the end of 2020 as it seemed a good accessory for the school desk set I ordered for my first Dollfie Towa.

Here's another photo and I like the way it really highlights Uzuki's faceup. It's a lot less subtle than Towa's is.

Oh and of course Uzuki is wearing Miku hair. We've decided her default wig (and outfit!) are far too valuable for her to wear on all but VERY special occasions.

BTW the plush Domo-Kun was part of my first ever online order from Japan (from JList back in 2004). I was so into him back then that I visited NHK's studios in Shibuya on my first full day in Japan back in 2007.

I mentioned that Uzuki's default Smile & Sweets outfit is just for special occasions. Here it is and it is absolutely stunning. The details... the details...

Yes she has a microphone, holding hands and those candy buttons... just adorable.

Microphone pocket:

If anyone's interested, here's DDS Uzuki standing next to DDdy Towa:

Towa does have platform shoes on, but as you can see she's taller (but not much taller) than Uzuki.

Can I also add that Uzuki's shoes are adorable 😍. Plus her socks are the softest socks I've ever felt - they're gorgeous. It would be cool if they sold them separately.

Also generally I'll add that Uzuki is much easier to pose than Towa. Towa can't really sit without her legs falling off, and they're a real pain to re-attach (I was almost in tears the first time her leg fell off). By contrast the DDS DDf3 frame is great (so far) and I've been so impressed with Uzuki that I am in the process of acquiring a second DDS.

As for wigs... we need more. We do have another brown wig but it was bought used from eBay and... 😪, wigs don't age well.

A few of you have asked what Kizuna AI is like with Miku hair, so here's the result. Apologies for so-so photo but I have pencilled in Kizuna for the next outdoors photoshoot.

What do you reckon? I think she looks pretty good and the wig is a decent match for Kizuna's default eyes. Also the wig is a decent contrast with her vTuber outfit.

My first outdoors Dollfie photoshoot in over a year. I'm trying to gain confidence in taking such large and conspicuous dolls outside, as the photos are generally much better quality than my studio shoots.

Anyway I think this shot will be for Uzuki's yearbook.

And yes, she does constantly complain about that infernally giant hair bow.

Here's Kizuna in a really complimentary outfit. Kizuna's quite pleased her bow is not quite so gigantic 😂. Kizuna's is the Princess Pink Jumper set and it's a really nice set and definitely a great choice of outfit for Kizuna. It will probably be a good start when I eventually come to making a Chii outfit.

Here's Uzuki venturing out after a couple of days of near constant rain. She's glad we picked up the Bear Raincoat set from Volks!

It's a pretty nice set, although the hood is oversized for Dollfies and won't actually stay over her head if there is more than a breath of wind. Those boots are excellent for the squelchy autumnal ground though.

spacer.png

Sadly her wig has gone all to pieces, but sea air is unkind to hair (doll or human lol).

Can you guess who this is?

spacer.png

It's actually Kizuna AI but she's cosplaying as Kagamine Rin. This is the Daughter of Evil outfit that I was really lucky to find on sale on the Volks Japan online store. I think they must keep a batch of older outfits and periodically put them up for sale. Anyway, it's a nice outfit if you like Super Dollfie style outfits, and is a wardrobe essential if you actually have the real Rin!

Incidentally Kizuna is wearing a semi-white bodysuit (version 2) and I think it works really well with Kizuna - it would be even better if I had some pairs of semi-white hands.

After a really grey autumnal day we were blessed with no wind and a beautiful sky. I rephotographed Kizuna cosplaying as the Daughter of Evil, and yes the rainbow was real and not photoshopped in afterwards.

spacer.png

Here's the full dress. This time I remembered to style the sash better.

spacer.png

I guess the problem now is you can't see her feet that dress is soooo long.

Now I have some really nice photos of this dress I might switch her into the other new outfit I bought for her.

Uzuki's away at an anime conference this week. I only hope she returns in time for the unboxing of our new girls!

spacer.png

Incidentally Uzuki is wearing the Cotton Candy Sailor outfit with the Shoes Boutique SB-SD-254 sneakers. The red spinner suitcase is by Volks.

Uzuki sent Towa this photo of herself at the anime conference...

spacer.png

Looks like she's killing it as Yaiba from 7th Dragon, maybe literally with the 3D printed knife she brought along. I've no idea how that got through the airport security scanners!

She was a little worried those socks were too long for her, but I told her not to worry, she looks awesome 🥰.
