Newest DD Girls + News

So Fall has happened, and Winter, and Spring has been here for about a week or so now. I honestly do feel bad about not blogging so much. I blame the lack of an really awesome camera I have been telling myself to get now for ages. But since I got laid off from my second job it still might not come to pass still for a long while ; A ; orz. So *ahem* lets begin ^_^!ImageBack in November I commissioned dear Andreja to redo the face up of my first BJD girl, Mizuki. It was indeed her 2nd birthday gift and also celebrating the two years I have been in the doll hobby :). It wasn’t easy I’ll tell you that much since I went through my own trials and tribulations.The face up commissioner lives in Australia and definitely lives up to her name by her amazing work and her hefty prices. She literally JUST doubled her prices when I was in her slots to commission her @_@.  ImageI definitely think it was worth it. My first girl really needed a spa treatment and some nice work done to her other than my DD girls for a change.( Oops there goes $240 :X )

You can see her amazing work and what she did for my girl here! ^_^ Very detailed and I was certainly honored and pleased she chose my girl to do her ‘Face up Stories’ on.ImageImageI got into figurines for a while and definitely need some more for my collection <3! As I have stated before, I consider Saber x Irisviel a couple and definitely love them together. What can I say? :3 Gotta love them Yuri couples! Image*Sorry for the blurry mess of this photo!* For sure, 2012 was my BJD/Cosplay wig collecting year. I couldn’t believe how much I got and still want more : X whelp! I guess you can never have enough wigs for your girls *cough* or for yourself *cough*! Until I figure out where to put them, they will stay in this bag and the pile around it for a while ^^;;;; ahahaha.ImageI also found love on December 8th of 2012 to an amazing girl in Orlando Florida. She knows of my obsession over penguins and gave this to me for Valentine’s day <3! His name is little Henry and I adore him.ImageAnd whoops ^_^;; what do we have here? I caught a Saber! :D*shot for referencing Pokemon XDD*ImageSo back in December I had gotten a cute Volks Victorique de Blois with the dear help of LightningSabre *cough*thatIstillowehimmoneyfor*cough* ^ ^;;. But as soon as I got her I was having some really tough issues bonding with her. And also felt I just wasn’t ready for another resin doll at this time. I barely give enough attention to Mizuki (sometimes). And although I can never part with her, I love her deeply :’) she is after all, my first BJD girl. I think the main issue is just finding the right clothes for her 🙂 plus helps to know she isn’t picky if she gets new clothes or not *whew*.ImageSince I had trouble bonding with Victorique I put her up for sale or for trade for a DDS Melty. I want her OH so badly ; A ; and just get a littlleee sad when I see someone else get her ; _ ; *sad pout*. She is my favorite Shining Hearts character. And I do hope I can maybe possibly get her later this year *fingers crossed*. But instead, someone offered a nice trade for her Saber Alter 2nd Version and I couldn’t resist <3! I simply adore her and have always wanted a Saber thanks to dear Haku-kun’s Saber Alter when he had her for a brief period of time.ImageSaber will be, no questions asked, my girl who will be wearing tomboyish clothes. Shorts,tennis shoes, hoodies–you name it. I am really excited to get her some more clothes and for her to model in them ^ 3 ^!

I got this set and another from a nice Etsy lady named GelassenheitWald. And I can’t get enough of them! 🙂 I love the materials she used and the cute clothes she makes (for amazing prices) for our dear DD girls.ImageCan I just say these stockings are amazing? They are very soft and I love the color of them. They go very well with the entire set if I do say so myself ^_^.ImageAnd HOLY MOLY! SHOES! XD Something I desperately need more of in my wardrobe now that I have more girls in my life 🙂 Got these little guys and another pair you will see later from Ebay for merely $20 with free shipping. I really like them ^_^!ImageThe back of the outfit is something else. I love the cute pockets and the frill at the bottom of the shorts giving this outfit a cute edge. This outfit can fit either M or L bust girls which is always nice :3.ImageThe set came with the dress, shirt, armlets, necklace, and the stockings for only $40. I also got another set but I am sure I will show you guys another day :). This outfit, plus the other, it came to nearly $70 for both plus only $6 shipping.

As for names, I am unsure what to name her. Now, I know what some of you are saying >_>;; ‘Mitsuki! Name her after your waifuu Maridah! :D’.ImageTrust me, I have thought of it but I already have so much ‘M’ names in my family and I am sure I will be having plenty more ‘M’ names down the road as well :(. But who knows, maybe I will since I did want my own custom Maridah DD girl *shrug*. We will see but no guarantee okay guys? 😉

I am half tempted to just call her Saber like everyone else, or to possibly name her Arturia. Thanks to Haku-kun getting me in this mess and making me fall for Saber Alter 😛 he originally named his Saber Alter “Eve” from the “Black Cat” series ^_^. I read/watched it a long time ago and sorely miss it :3.ImageImage

I faintly even remember the series but I remember her just being a very quiet type of girl. Very mellow and soft spoken. She was a very adorable character though ^_^!Image*Darn these friggin dark dreary left over Winter days. No sunlight I swear! >o<* So maybe I’ll call her Saber Eve, or Arturia Eve Pendragon– I dunno, I am just stuck >_<. As I am very pleased with my Saber, I am unsure if I am going to keep her in her original eyes or wig. I want to really customize the crap out of her now since I know she has an awesome squishy head to make it really easy to switch out her eyes and such :3. A big plus in my books. I have a few ideas on what I want to do with her but I want to see it all on her and I’ll decide from there ^_^.ImageHmmm?ImageAhh, that’s right, I was customizing a Dead Master wasn’t I? ^_^ Many have seen quite a few teasing photos of her for the past few months. And I guess I could give you guys a sneak peak on what I am doing here. I have certainly been working VERY long and hard on her for the past year (back in January 2012). But I feel like it’s going to finally pay off later this year :). Or so I hope <_<;;ImageI have to really thank UltimaKnight for the recommendation of these amazing eyes SQLab released about a year and a half ago. They do look amazing and fit my dear Dead-chan very well. They are just a bit big for her eyes but they look marvelous nonetheless <3! The glasses are also from SQLab and the face up was done by dear Hikaru-kun before he got swarmed by a ton of DD owners wanting to get their face ups done by his amazing hand @_@. The poor dear.ImageThe wig was modded by me and came from Leekeworld. It originally had pigtails and I had to chop them off and cut the cute side curls to really give Dead Master her default hair. I truly love it but I feel eventually due to Leekeworld’s troublesome wigs at times, I may need a back up one. But for now this will do.ImageAs I have said, this is only a sneak peak and I will give more details about how I went about making her and what I had to go through. She isn’t complete for now but she will be soon 😉 and she’ll definitely be back!ImageAs for the love birds–I mean Mio and my custom sleeping Miku Hatsune, They are doing well and ready for the Spring like everyone else on the East coast of the United States XD.Image This necklace came as a free gift (from the clothes sets I bought from the Etsy lady :)) and is very cute for Mio to wear with her 2012 Spring dress. For Mio, I am quite content on how she is now and will get new clothes for her here and there when the time comes.ImageOh and look! More shoes! ❤ImageAs for my Miku, she certainly needs some work done to her. I am hoping later this year when I have time and when Dead-chan is done I can get back with her and finish her. I also need some more proper photos of her in this custom outfit I got made for her last year that my local dear friend made for me. It just needs more proper photos and the attention it deserves :3.

Thank you all for reading and dreadfully sorry for this amazing long post! XD I had a lot to catch up on. Expect more soon! ^_^ Thanks for reading! Mitsuki out! ^ o ^/

Full Moon’s Sanctuary

Well hello everyone! ^_^ After finally a year after reading other people’s blogs or pages, I have decided to make my own blog. I was very happy to hear some people were very interested in me doing blogs and that really makes me happy. So, for my first blog, I have decided to take a tour of my sanctuary (bedroom if you will), since this is where mainly all my creativity starts ^_^. Ready? I hope so :3 let’s get to it!

Image

A small look on my entire bedroom. I did forget to do one wall but that was my personal wall of photos, jewelry, ps3, tv and etc. I am planning on redoing this wall hopefully this year with a desk perhaps. My queen bed won’t be here probably after this year (just too big for little ol me ^^;; tehe).

Image

Though I am not into ‘still’ figures, when it comes to Kuroshitsuji, I just HAD to get this one :D. Ciel Phantomhive is one of my favorite anime characters of all time. I have watched both seasons of the anime several times, and up to date with the recent ongoing manga chapters ^_^. Kuroshitsuji has been my favorite anime since it was first released out in Japan. A pretty hard core fan I would say ^_^.

Image

I sadly took these photos with a sad camera that just needs to retire, my old coolpix camera. Poor thing. But yes, *ahem*, these are the oldest dolls in my collection. I have had these since my 10th birthday ^_^. I am very proud I still have them and probably gonna keep them for a long time :D. And yes, Sailor Moon was my first anime when I was little other than Digimon and Cardcaptor Sakura ^_^.

Image

Since the age of 12, I have been collecting manga, my collection is decent compared to others but I am very happy with it and how much it has grown! 😀 My first figma was Miku Hatsune and one of my prized collections since she sells for a pretty good sum these days o.o. And my latest nendroid was Miku Append, her append mode face is just too cute for words :’D. As you can also see, I do have the BRS petite from the Blueray package of the OVA. Though not very fond of petites, wayyy too small for my taste o.o;;.

Image

 

My Yomi(<3) and Mato figmas and also another petite set from the BRS OVA once again. Oh Yomi’s cute 0 o 0 face! I definitely want to take more photos of her some day :D!

Image

Though a bit embarrassing, yes, I do collect quite a bit of Monster High dolls ^////^. But lately I have been quite pissed with them since the show is at its peak of popularity and they are like releasing 10 new dolls every flippin season. And since I have several stuff I collect(not to mention my doll hobby), I don’t have the newest dolls as of late :/ nor the income to get them.

Image

In the year of 2010, I went on a crazy frenzy of buying TONS AND TONS of Hello Kitty plushes :D! My favorite is Cinnamoroll, which some times has the face of the evil Kyubey =_=;;. A friend pointed it out once on webcam, how sad that I never noticed before.

Image

Where my girls are displayed. The blinds are closed at ALL times mainly due to Mizuki being a resin doll. I try to keep her far from the window as possible. I see some collectors put their girls in glass cases but I just don’t have the heart to do it. They are usually displayed here, or on top of my bed when it is made :).

Mio: What is she doing..?

Mizuki: Your guess is as good as mine.

Miku: *Daydreaming*~

Image

Image

Recently, I have started a bit of a collection of My Little Pony XD. I still can’t believe a brony got me into it but yes, I love the series very much. My collection won’t be too big since I get discouraged of Hasbro not adding important details to some of the characters =_=.

Image

Another keepsake from my 10th birthday, my Sailor Moon piggy bank :’D. Still have it. And here are also my Dead Master (<3 ❤ <3) and Black Rock Shooter figmas epically displayed. Sadly, I only have these two since I can’t find Black Gold Saw or Strength figmas at the moment. Waiting patiently for someone to post them for decent prices on Figure.Fm >o> patiently…

Image

Another shelf of my cute nendroid collection. It’s slowly growing and come to find out I have like 10 nendroids and only 5 figmas. I need to start collecting more figmas >_<! I sadly, would have had more if I didn’t lose my job back in fall of 2011. Sad face…

Image

Agh! Blurry! Sorry! X_X But yes, my two favorite girls at the moment with other faces from nendroids <3!

Image

My Monster High collection continued here, my FAVORITE artist collection books of Arina Tanemura in the background. Will get back to that in a second ^_^.

Image

My mini corner of my Kuroshitsuji collection ^_^. Sorry for the failed paper mini’s of the characters X_X I just got into them recently but was only doing them out of printer paper and that just doesn’t do too well. I possibly need thicker paper perhaps?

The Ciel Phantomhive nendroid was my first nendroid collected since he is my original favorite <3! And soon after that came Sebastian. Gotta love his cat fetish ^ 3 ^!

Image

My Pullip Dal of Ciel Phantomhive as Robin from Season 1 Episode 4. Probably one of my most favorite episodes in the first season XD. I DID have the Pullip Taeyang of Tutor Sebastian but there was just too many things wrong with his body that I had to send him back to the seller. Planning on getting another one though! Ciel is currently trying to display this look here:

Image

Suck up <_<.So evil yet so cute. Why my obsession of Ciel Phantomhive Robin version? Because he, dressed as Robin, is a bit dressed like my original character, especially if I was a 2D girl :). And your probably thinking, okay, you like this character, why haven’t you made a doll out of him yet? Right? 😀 Well, I am definitely taking my time planning it all out and wanting to pick the perfect mold for my lovely Ciel ^_^. And Sebastian as well >_> but his mold is a bit tricky since he certainly is one hell of a butler ^_~.

Image

My wall *cough*soontobeshrineofkuroshitsuji*cough* is displayed near my bed ^_^ as you saw in the first look of my bedroom. I love this poster a lot since it really is rich in color. Took some photos of the manga and scans of the series and decided to post all around the poster. Still not complete but it’s a good start :D!

Image

A bit random, a few more photos of Kuroshitsuji, a wall hanger of Queen of Hearts that a friend gave me since they know I am a HUGE fan of Alice in Wonderland, the original book of course. A poster of Vampire Knight that I got from the Shoujo Beat! magazine. Pictures of the online animation of Lilium in which I am fully in love with her character, even inspired me to dress like her when I was in middle school to high school. Creeped just a few people out though mwahaha! And a small keychain (you’ll see closely by the VK poster) of Precious Miseries Lilith. Sadly, the series is struggling just a little, I believe there is only one book and few plushes of the other dolls. Very cute series ^_^! I hope it becomes more popular though 😦 .

Image

Image

Now some of you might wonder….why is there a lion above your bathroom door? o_0 I consider him dear Aslan from Chronicles of Narnia. Read all of the books and a very precious child hood memory and respect of him :). Consider him the protector of my room from evil spirits ^_^.

 

Image

As you can see, I collect a LOT of plushes. Some I have had since I was little and some I have just got within the past year. Duzzel (name from another good manga series Vampire Game), my favorite skelanimal (from the original plush series as you can plainly see XD), has been sleeping with me since the age of 15. Who is also holding my decked out Nexus S phone. Gotta love Samsung! Leo Jr ( made by build a bear) was a gift from a dear old friend a few years ago but currently pulling off Jay Chou’s look from the recent movie Green Hornet XD.

Image

Give me an Asian guy in a suit, and he’ll most likely feel so violated after I am done looking at him like he’s something good to eat. Yumz~ ^_~

Image

That pretty much concludes my bedroom tour. I will keep it up to date as possible since I know I will be doing a lot of changes this year due to my collection and getting my first desktop computer and desk. How much fun THAT’S gonna be! XD I apologize again for the horrible photos but my father hid his camera from me since I didn’t charge it from the last photo shoot of the girls being outside >_>.

Image

Many of you maybe wonder why my name is possibly ‘Mitsuki’. Honestly, it’s not my real name but I consider it to be my Japanese name. From my Arina Tanemura books from earlier, my name was inspired by the anime and manga series called “Full Moon wo Sagashite”. The story touched me in so many areas of my life, it’s easily one of my most favorites. Plus for as long as I could remember I have been studying the moon and know all the cycles it goes through every month. Since ‘Mitsuki’ really means ‘Full Moon’ ^_^. And my first BJD girl is named ‘Mizuki’ which means ‘Beautiful Moon’. I wanted her to be special in a way since she was my first girl. Thank you all for reading and hope you can look forward to my next post. Which will most likely be doll related XD. Have a good day! ^_^
