All about photography and collecting of dolls and figures

Time flies, right? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ It’s been a while since I posted here and I think it’s the perfect occasion, here we go! ~

On April 30, 2012โ€ฆ

Millhiore arrived home, it was an indescribable feeling! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ I still remember thinking โ€œWow, she’s much bigger than it seems in photos!!!!” lol

Ive already been collecting figures for a few years, but seeing Uriko’s beautiful Dollfie Dreams made me want one very much. I even had to spend almost a year giving particular classes to save up and be able to buy one hahaha I remember having to choose between Millhiore and Mito Mashiro, both of them still look adorable to me ๐Ÿ’œ

How did Doll Photography started?

My father had a DSLR camera at home and I used to play with it. Both my figures and my dolls seemed so precious to me that I wanted to show them to the world the best way I could, this is how this hobby gradually emerged.

I ended up wanting them to look pretty, but also make them tell a story, seem alive, show emotions that I was going throughโ€ฆ In the end, it becomes a form of creative expression.

By the way, do you remember my old blog? If so, please leave me a comment because it will make me infinitely excited to know that there are still such veteran readers ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿฅบ

Sharing my hobby!

2016, photo for the Ldoll Festival

While I share my photos and life in the hobby, meetings, events and talks show up. It’s one of the things I enjoy the most, being in contact with this community ^^

From Ldoll Festival (Lyon) to Animefest (Brno) with Figubo, and also Dolly Festival and Dolly Days in Barcelona. I keep those memories with great love ๐Ÿ’œ ๐Ÿ’œ ๐Ÿ’œ

Another important thing has been to be able to connect with people from all over the world thanks to the dolls.ย I really think the Dollfie Dream community is lovely, both in the forums and on social media as well as on my blog.

I’ve always felt it as something mutual: I started sharing tutorials, content, photography…, and on the other hand I feel very loved and supported, so the way I see it, I give but people also give it back โ˜บ๏ธ

Ups and downs, this is life

Yup, 10 years go a long way and in the end we are human. Look, I didn’t upload any post last year (it’s really hard for me to admit lol), but tastes come and go, life hits you hard sometimes and the things you used to do are left behind.

I’m not much of a talker on this topic, but I think it needs to be normalized because it happens to all of us. In my case, it was due to a personal problem that affected me a lot and the pandemic made it worse. Right now I feel more comfortable in video games, for example, than in taking my dolls out of the cabinets. I’m still in a moment of heavy changes and lately I’ve not felt that motivation and that energy of yesteryear, it goes by streaks. I don’t want to force it either, I think it would be worse, so I just take it easy.

And now, what?

There’s a little thing that made me so happy lately, and it’s been the collab withย Murasaki.me ๐Ÿ’œ ๐Ÿ’œ ๐Ÿ’œ She’s such an artist: she created this outfit that looks AMAZING in Coco, and I took some photos for her ๐Ÿ˜ Apart from this, I also really want to go to Dolly Day in September, see my friends again and reactivate the hobby.

In the end, the best thing from these 10 years, apart from creative freedom, are the experiences, the people I’ve met, the trips, the friends…

Seriously, I never thought that the simple fact of buying a doll would lead me to experience so many things, thanks for being part of this adventure โ™ก

  • I will be forever grateful that you decided to get beautiful Millhiore because she led me to the hobby. I remember that I had been newly introduced to Pinterest and was just sort of messing around when I happened to stumble across a pic of Millhiore holding out her hand to a butterfly. At that moment I thought โ€œWowโ€ฆ I have to get one of these dolls!!โ€ It took a while and a lot of saving up, but now I have an adorable vinyl girl of my own.
    I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into sharing your wonderful thoughts and photos with us, and you have helped me in so many ways through your blogs. (Iโ€™ve read both of them, but this was after the new blog went up.) I canโ€™t believe that itโ€™s 10 years already, even if I only got to be here for the last 3, and Iโ€™m excited to be here for the years to come. Sending you and your dolls love and good vibesโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ
