My first encounter with these Dolfie Dream was in Chou Dai blog few years back and my first impression was.......well, I think those who read his blog would get the picture^^;
However, after seeing beautiful pictures of them here at figure.fm and DC I couldn't help myself from getting one of them to come to my home. A common phenomenon here I guess
and this is result. My first daughter Akiyama Mio (DD)

She came with the summer clothes guitars and everything all in pristine condition.

Since she was my first Dolfie I marveled at every piece that came with her. Shirts, shoes, wig and awed at the craftsmanship behind it.
Putting her clothes on took forever though^^;

Her default wig and clothes were great really but I had other things on mind so....

....and so I went to Volks in Akihabara for new wig (+stand)
With no experience in neither hair trimming nor Dolfie Dream customization this process also took forever :(

Couldn't find the black hair ribbon to go with her white hair so I colored the ribbon that came with the uniform pitch black and stuck it to her wig. I think it went well^^;

She's still under construction but ultimately she's going to look something like this

All I need now are some fine clothing to go with her.
hmm....anybody know where I can get clothes for DD in Japan? An actual store would be helpful since I prefer looking at the actual product before purchasing them^^;

Additional picture of her in the morning. Looks like natural lighting suited her better.
