After I made a “tsun tsun” Taiga Aisaka version II I loved her but I felt like I needed a happier version of her. Today inspired by the sudden break of sunny weather, I worked on the last blank head I got ^^;

Due to my impatience, the work is rather rough :P Not sure if it was due to that, I still feel that I like tsun tsun version II the most out of the three?

I got increasingly curious about the Parabox 40 cm body after seeing this flickr group discussion, and the 伝達戦士コクチバンR (Galaxy Police) blog’s cute P-chan custom doll didn’t help the temptation…

Today a head, body and wig arrived…

Warning: Doll nudity ahead, probably NSFW.

I have always admired the custom heads which is often featured in the Japanese blog: 伝達戦士コクチバンR (Galaxy Police) — they were what inspired me to make my own Taiga Aisaka custom Mini Dollfie dream.

I had been meaning to make a version II of Taiga’s head for a while now, and after I discovered some custom eye option, I decided not to wait any longer, heads were purchased (Thanks again Nicole!) and work was started when the weather became more suitable ^^

When Mai (Mai Little Alien) asked me to help her make some basic white tee shirts for her doll kids’s promotional display for Doll show, of course I said yes!  Today Mai brought her doll kids over for fitting and impromptu photoshoot.

Working on a commission Gothloli outfit for Danny’s sweet Saber dollfie dream, have to make a pattern which means test sewings for my own Mirai chan ^^;

First make sketches of some design(s)… Get approval… Finalise some details… Certain details may change depending on the type of lace/trims used, but a basic idea is needed to start :)

 

 
The process usually = Start making a pattern (if it’s from scratch) with paper over half of the Dollfie’s body, draw some outlines, use tape to secure some area which needs to be tucked in etc. Cut it out, trace as a flat pattern with seam allowance, cut out the fabric pieces needed then sew an actual test item(or more)… Make some mistakes along the way (doh!), trash the mistakes, make corrections/adjustment and make a 2nd try…

As promised, here it is! A photographic documentation of the making of the Mirai Seifuku ^^!

I’m a big fan of Danny Choo’s Mascot(s) – Mirai Suenaga and sister Haruka Suenaga.  Heck, I even named my Yukino Dollfie Dream after Mirai! When I was influenced by Danny and fell in love with Yukino – a Dollfie Dream, I knew I had to eventually make my own Mirai Seifuku! ^^;  I guess Danny had a same idea for his Dollfie Dream, so he commissioned me to make a set for his lovely Dollfie Dream girls :)

It was quite challenging, as I needed to create a pattern from scratch, and make sure the pattern match closely to the actual Seifuku design by Azami Yuko Sensei. Thru researching various links, I found this particular japanese tutorial particularly helpful. (Domo Arigato!) Link broken :(
