Dollie cosplay!

OK, so my camera died over the weekend, and I didn't get around to charging the batteries till today. Anyway! I and my resin herd were fortunate enough to be invited to scarlet_reverie's lovely Japanese pavilion (kidnaps pavilion! runs away with it!)
Pics are in two parts... this is the Ichigo/Rukia-centric part, or should I say, the Allen/Lenalee-centric part... because I FINALLY finished their Halloween outfits!

I like the way the light falls on them.:3

This is actually not a very good picture, I just like how it plays havoc with my sense of scale. They look almost lifesize here, thanks to the clever layout of the pavilion.^^

I gave him the option of standing properly or standing gay. We compromised.

awesome stone lantern.^_^

of course Rukia was not content with standing at its base.

a close-up, because I like the way the light falls on her here.

This is Ichigo/Allen's SUPER ORANGE FACEUP. He will stab me in my sleep tonight for showing this, I'm sure.

'nuther omake!

WAHHH! Robin seeks refuge from rambunctious fangirls!

I'll get around to posting the other pictures... later^^;

I rather like them as Allen and Lenalee. ^_^
Nov. 22nd, 2007 02:28 pm (UTC)
It worked out surprisingly well:3
I couldn't keep them as Allen and Lenalee, though. Ichigo is Ichigo and Rukia is Rukia... they refuse to be anybody else. And then of course there's that height difference.XD;

You did a great job in their outfit.
They look great. ^^
Nov. 23rd, 2007 02:54 am (UTC)
Thank you so much!^__^

Nov. 22nd, 2007 06:59 pm (UTC)
That's so awesome! I love Rukia as Lenalee in particular. Allen is great as well, although his expression is still distinctly Ichigo-ish.
Nov. 23rd, 2007 02:56 am (UTC)
yeah, it amuses me that Ichigo is a bit TOO emo for Allen; that takes some doing.XD
Nov. 22nd, 2007 08:52 pm (UTC)
Wow, Rukia looks great as Lenalee! XD And I like the outfit you used for her. It's my favorite. *g*
Nov. 23rd, 2007 03:01 am (UTC)
Thank you!^__^ Rukia has just such a perfect... anime face?XD

I feel like I took a LOT of artistic licence with the dress because of the scale...^^;
I want to make Lenalee's Chinese-style outfit (the one with the high collar) for her next. I think it will suit Rukia in her default mode as well.:3
Nov. 23rd, 2007 03:16 am (UTC)
o_o wow! Awesome!!!! You made them? :O That's ...amazing!
Nov. 23rd, 2007 11:18 am (UTC)
Thanks!^^ Yeah, I made the clothes and Allen's scar.:3 The badge was a pendant I got from ebay.
Nov. 23rd, 2007 05:30 am (UTC)
The eyes are really nice on Allen. And I love the way you did Linali's hair, very accurate.
Nov. 23rd, 2007 11:19 am (UTC)
Thanks^^ For her hair, I just twirled it around and miraculously it stayed that wayXD
Nov. 24th, 2007 02:32 am (UTC)
Without using an iron? In the manga/anime, the curls practically looked ironed, and pretty tight.
Nov. 24th, 2007 03:01 am (UTC)
'tis but the wonders of synthetic hair:)
but, since I don't have the magic ringlet-setting abilities of the Noah clan, I had to redo it every time I set up a shot.:P
Nov. 24th, 2007 03:52 am (UTC)
Magical indeed. Her curls stayed that way even while she was fighting. O.o
Nov. 23rd, 2007 06:05 am (UTC)
Thats pretty cool.
They really do look like Allen and Lenalee.
Where did you get the outfits for those dolls?
Nov. 23rd, 2007 11:20 am (UTC)
Thanks!^^ I sewed the outfits myself. The badge is a real metal pendant I got from ebay.:3
Nov. 24th, 2007 05:21 am (UTC)
Really? You did an awesome job!~
Ebay sell the pendant that small? o___O
Nov. 24th, 2007 11:30 am (UTC)
yup! search for "d.gray-man" and you should find one or two sellers that have them.^^ (I should say, they're bootleg merchandise - but they were so nice that i was willing to overlook this detail^^;)
Nov. 25th, 2007 04:08 am (UTC)
Oh, cool.
Thanks for teh info ^^
Nov. 23rd, 2007 06:53 am (UTC)
Those are really well done. I could never imagine having to make little costumes in such detail. Great job!
Nov. 23rd, 2007 12:02 pm (UTC)
Thanks!^^ Sewing the costumes is fiddly, but I actually find it's not that different (aggravation-wiseXD) from human-sized cosplay.
Nov. 23rd, 2007 08:24 am (UTC)
o.o i really liked the allen outfit for the dollfie. xDDD
but the doll looks fierce. >_>
And the lenalee doll looks really pretty lol. xDDD
Nov. 23rd, 2007 11:37 am (UTC)
"Allen" is usually my Ichigo Kurosaki... who I picked specially for his grumpy face♥ so Allen's a little crankier than usual.
Nov. 24th, 2007 06:27 am (UTC)
wahhh. that means you have got more dolls... T-T
haha!!~ maybe you should do the one where he's smiling and all.
nice dp btw. xDD
Nov. 27th, 2007 12:47 pm (UTC)
Hehe, I know exactly which dolls I would love to have for Allen and Lenalee... if I ever win the lotteryXD
Nov. 29th, 2007 04:53 am (UTC)
dollfies are expensive.. rawrr. how much did those 2 cost you?
Nov. 29th, 2007 05:31 am (UTC)
Ichigo/Allen = USD400
Rukia/Lenalee = USD200

the ones I think would be good for Allen and Lenalee are these two^^
...but again, only if I win the lottery^^;
Nov. 29th, 2007 05:38 am (UTC)
omg. that allen doll. is fab. i think that reallly looks like him. but the lenalee doll.. hmm. not sure though. might be because of her hair. hehe.

let's do some calculations..
USD400 = SGD600
USD200 = SGD 300

Nov. 29th, 2007 05:56 am (UTC)
Actually I thought she would make a good Lenalee first before I thought he would make a good Allen.XD the beauty of these dolls is that you can change the wigs, eyes, makeup...

and the cost... well... scrimping, saving, and self-denial. Lots and LOTS of self-denial.XD
Nov. 30th, 2007 04:58 am (UTC)
well. i guess most dollfie owners do that.
;-; saving up for ages.. just for a naked dollfie. rawrrr~

YES. but i think the changing of the wig etc and especially the eyes part.. is rather freaky. heehe. you have to OPEN THE HEAD.

can i add you as my friend?
Nov. 30th, 2007 05:22 am (UTC)
Sure.^^ I'm pretty weird though, just thought I'd warn you.;)

I actually quite like changing the eyes and the wig and gluing on eyelashes and so on... I feel like I'm being OMG SO CREATIVE.XD
Nov. 30th, 2007 06:33 am (UTC)
hehe. i am weird too. :D so how weird are you?
*adds you*

rawrr. i get freaked out by that. o.o
*points to your dp*
isn't that the girl from bleach?

xDDD add me back? xDDD
Nov. 23rd, 2007 12:38 pm (UTC)
gosh! they look awesome!
they look like the real allen and lenalee! :DDD
Nov. 27th, 2007 12:47 pm (UTC)
Nov. 23rd, 2007 04:37 pm (UTC)
They look great!
Nov. 24th, 2007 11:32 am (UTC)
Thank you so much!^__^
Nov. 23rd, 2007 11:39 pm (UTC)
i just noticed i didnt take picture with lots of dolls in last meet and ichigo and rukia are some of it ;O; They are so cute together wah~~ and good job on the outfits! <33
Nov. 24th, 2007 11:47 am (UTC)
Thank you! ^^ I'm really happy with how they turned out.

hehe, I think I missed a lot of photo ops too - I was concentrating on making use of Celestie's beautiful garden for my little pair.:3 and then my camera battery died... I don't think I got any pics of the "rock band"...^^;
Nov. 24th, 2007 11:57 pm (UTC)
Wow, thats awesome and gorgeous and YAY!!
Nov. 27th, 2007 12:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you!^_^

Thanks! Glad you dropped by!^_^
Nov. 29th, 2007 11:08 am (UTC)
I've actually passed-by your LJ before, but this is the first time I'm really looking at it. :)

Isn't it strange how bjds can cosplay, too? And I really like Rukia's midnight-blue dress. It looks semi-Victorian.

As for Ichigo. Have you seen this other person's rendition of him? :

(You have to be a member there to see the page, I believe.)

Nov. 29th, 2007 02:03 pm (UTC)
Re: Hello!
Hi! Yup, I've seen aernath's Ichigo. He's awesome.:3 (I'm Tokiko on DoA, btw.^^)

My dolls have actually become my outlet for my cosplay bug, since I don't have many opportunities to cosplay now... This is the first cosplay that I've had them do. Rukia's dress is actually based on a design in the manga D.Gray-Man, which is set in "a fictional Victorian era"... it's a really good read, I recommend it!^^
Nov. 29th, 2007 02:46 pm (UTC)
And I'm 'Bunnisteffi' there, though I haven't posted much yet. (Don't have a doll currently.)

Just wondering, if I ever do get my Yokou (I've even named her!), could you help me to make her a dress with a similar cutting? In puffed sleaves?

It's pretty silly to ask now, I s'pouse, since the possibility of me getting a Dollmore Asha isn't high. But. I'd been pondering over the whole dress thing while on a train home this afternoon, until I saw Rukia's cosplay dress.

My friend's been trying to get me to watch D-Gray... haven't yet.
