I am already back in Vancouver, a little jet lagged still, with some odd muscle pains ^o^;
But I wanted to say a BIG and heart felt THANK YOU Blythe Con Japan, the Organizers, Volunteers and Sponsors! It was a super awesome convention, and I enjoyed myself thoroughly despite some personal hiccups on the day of! Like sneezing too hard due to allergies and pulling an odd back muscle the morning of Blythe Con…. o_o; And thank you to my kind kind hosts (you know who you are!) for having me this time, it really helped to have a roof and company, and also sound advice for my reducing the pain from my odd injury XD! Words cannot describe my gratefulness :) I was telling my husband how much fun it was when one day the adults of the household were all playing with dolls at night LOL! I will post some quick snippets from my phone here, there is quite a lot to share, so I will be eventually posting other photos and activities in detail when I can.
I also want to thank my dear husband for staying back to care for our furkids, especially Ginko (she has epilepsy and needs medication 3 times a day, hence it was not possible for us to travel together for a while now…) I wished he could have come with me, but I am really also very thankful if not for him staying behind, I probably won’t be able to bring myself to focus on the convention and activities around it.

I will be bringing assorted items to the convention ^^/ (some may differ from the photo below)
25 June 2016 in Tokyo ^o^/ my previous post can be found here.
I remember walking out in the beautiful but cold afternoon, quite certain I could have some decent photos taken! Monica is a custom blythe lovingly created by Ellis of WabiSabiDolls. She is definitely my current go to when I want to grab a blythe doll out for photos and such :)
The irony of this series of photos is that for some reason I didn’t take too much at the location I wanted to due to the sunlight being unfavourable for a nice shoot ^^; The light was quite strong and the angle was odd which cast a lot of harsh shadows on Monica’s face.
So I ended up walking around trying to find other backdrops ^^; Monica is wearing clothes which I had made, the caplet is a test version so the fit still can be adjusted, perhaps in future >_<;
Came across this large Holly bush, feels perfect except it’s not Christmas anymore XD
Match her caplet well tho!
Bonus plum picture :D It’s one of my favourite variety ^o^
