Lots of Gets

When Batsu goes to a doll event, it’s not usually for purpose of making purchases.  I don’t line up early, or try to arrive by a certain time; nor do I travel with a suitcase as many attendees do.  I bring a camera, do a lot of looking, and usually walk away with a piece or two.

On the contrary, this time (Doll Show 28)I went with the specific purpose of buying everything.  Why?  Well, for one, I haven’t indulged Miyu in a while.  And for two, I’ve been feeling rather lackadaisical and haven’t started any craft projects lately.  The idea was to gain inspiration from the awe of others’ work.  (Let’s see how well that works out.)

Upon arriving home, I was so excited to show Alice and Miya all of the cool things I got for them that I pulled out the camera and photographed the whole ordeal.

They look real enough to eat – the large berry in particular makes it more doll-like and otherworldly.  And delicious.

Alice used to hold her little rabbit (purchased at another Doll Show) by the head.  The basket adds about 200% more cute, though the other look was nice, too.

I guess I was in a cute mood?  The top dress was crocheted by hand and only 800 yen.  They threw in an extra prop since I bought it off of the modelling doll – this was their last one.  The bottom dress I wish I had found first; beautifully sewn by hand, and featuring elastic buttons and loops in the back as opposed to Velcro to both lay flat and avoid snagging her hair.

I think she likes it.

I got many things for Miyu… but first…  the packaging for this one was adorable!  I let her open the boxes herself.

Miyu:  So, you went to the Doll Show.  Did you bring me anything?

Batsu:  Maybe…  Let’s take a look.

R0013011

Miyu:  Oh!  It’s wrapped and everything!  I have to be sure to open it carefully.

R0013015

Miyu: Whaa~!

Batsu: What’s inside?

R0013018

Miyu: A tiara!  You finally realize I’m a princess.

R0013020

Miyu:  Do I wear it like this?

Batsu: Let me help you…

R0013023

Batsu:  It looks great!  And even matches your ensemble!  Do you like it?

R0013024

Miyu: I love it.

R0013030

Miyu:  Wow – another one!?  It’s so pretty.

R0013033

Batsu:  It looks great on you, too.  But perhaps you need a new dress or something to match.

R0013042

Miyu: What’s this?

R0013045

Batsu:  It’s candy – a tasty treat for good little princesses after meals.

R0013053

Miyu: Heh heh heh.  Don’t worry, I’ll put this somewhere safe.

R0013055

Miyu:  Oh, a new purse!

R0013059

Miyu: And a tea set!

R0013091

Miyu:  It’s too late – Hina Matsuri was weeks and weeks ago.

R0013096

Batsu: I know…  but isn’t it cute?  Look how small it is!  You can bring it out from next year.

R0013066

Batsu:  And lastly…  I thought you might like to read this book.

R0013067

Batsu:  It’s a real book, and it’s called Alice in Wonderland.  Have you heard of it?

R0013069

Miyu: Wow!  Alice…

R0013070

Batsu: Do you like it?

R0013074

Miyu: Wow…  Alice…
