The First Doll Meet - Halloween

After a quick and mini doll meet on the Saturday, it was time for the main event; the official Doll Meet on Sunday! So why not start off with a doll in costume and with a Jack-O-Lantern pumpkin motif? First of all I brought Saber with me... The dangerous part is that Saber doesn't have a hair-like hair, but PVC-like hair. So I had to separate her head and place her in a separate case. But she fit the nurse clothes I bought a long time ago. It's a Re-Ment costume that I bought for $5, but it's definitely worth it since Saber looks so good in it! She might have to stay in that outfit for a while XD

Oh and honestly... I was nervous to meet a lot of people there. I've only known a few people like the Candyman who I hung out with the day before and as well as...

Chun! And her Taiga! It's nice to have a picture of her and Saber together, but the size difference is... Well quite significant ^^;

But I was still nervous since I'm one of the only two guys in the whole meeting area... I was a bit nervous at first, but the common theme of dolls really bring people together.

Lots and lots of unique dolls and in costumes as well, especially since it's Halloween-themed :D

Saber looks out of place ^^; Pink outfit and smaller than the rest, haha. She likes to hang out with the big crowd apparently. ^^;

But maybe the Gundam is more out of place than Saber ^^; Hmm... the pink-haired one looks like the Luka I saw at Anime Evolution.

Lots and lots of unique dolls. I really like the ears on this one.

This is Cammy, Candyman's musume. The goggles and skull decoration are really cool-looking!

Another group shot from the other side. Here you can see Azunyan ^_^

I like that Mummy girl! ^_^

Cute witchy ^.^

Awesome tattoo! The owner, JM, said it was quite expensive to do this custom job, even if it was on sale ^^;

Crocodile doll?

Wai wai! Azunyan made a new friend... Mokotan! She finally met someone her size and same coloured outfit too! Ah and yes, I neglected to tell the story of Azunyan's outfit. I actually bought it BEFORE I got Azunyan! Yes, I knew I was going to get her, but it was months away and I worry the dress might sell out... It's a perfect match for guitarist Azunyan ^_^

Another group shot... With Mokotan and Azunyan now!

Watch those fingers buddy!

Would you believe this is a boy? ^^;

Very cute Alice in Wonderland group!

Lots and lots of clothes going around. It was awesome! Too bad none of them fit mine ^^;

Looks even cuter inside the pumpkin!

Gundam's shoulder is quite sturdy enough for dolls to sit on!

Aki and Jiro make a cute couple, don't they? ^o^ The pirate girl is cool too there in the corner.


Aki has a change of clothes... Tres chic!

Looks like Saber made a new friend...

Ey ey ey! Watch the hand there buddy!

Uhhh... I don't know how this picture got here...

Lots and lots of outfit changing! It was quite fun actually.
Maybe I should've brought more of Azunyan's clothes.

Wolf-like hair as Candyman said.
Unfortunately I had work that day so I had to leave early, so I must've missed out on quite a lot ^^;;; There's always a next time ^_^

So at work I had my own personal doll meet with the two sisters. They seem to have separated during the meet, but at work, they're together... Just don't tell Saber about what Azunyan did, ok? ^^;;;;

Bai bai! Until next time! See you again!

Mini Doll Meet - Oct. 23, 2010

So after a quick meeting with the Vancouver BJD group at Anime Evolution, I found myself landing in the middle of an actual Doll Meet or Doll Meat as Chun would like to call it :P

Well this isn't the actual official meet that I went to at first. It was a smaller group consisting of only 6 people and we all went to Magnetic Cafe. For me it was the second time, but for everyone else it was the first time. At least for this new version of the cafe with the "cosplay" aspect. As Azunyan is the only official doll that I have, she gets the spotlight, but I thought I'd bring her Nendoroid counterpart for more fun ^^

This is a boy doll btw... Kawaii, ne? And yes, that's a Yuna dress. Home made too!
After a short wait, I met a couple of new people who's brought her four dolls and much much bigger than Azunyan ^^; Suddenly Azunyan is in a land of giants, lol. I was quite nervous myself because this is the first time I've met some of the BJD owners.

Once everybody arrived we got a group picture going... Well the dolls' group picture, haha. Oh but wait... Where's Azunyan in the group picture?

Oh... She's still eating... She was playing with her guitar but by request I changed her hands to nyan nyan mode! Oops, I didn't warn about the food pictures... Oh well, consider yourselves warned XD The food was great, but the service wasn't as good. The waitresses were wearing school uniforms with short skirts, which were great, but still can't take a picture and one of them wore shorts underneath ^^;

Azunyan Nendo was very popular with one of the attendee... Let's call her... "JL" :3 I swear if I didn't keep an eye out on Azunyan, she would've been kidnapped, lol!

Onii-chan, Azunyan wants choco pudding!

Azunyan joins the group picture. What a huge size difference ^^;

I met user "The Candyman" at Anime Evolution this year and he invited me to this meet. He lets Azunyan have a bite out of his Curry OmuRice ^^

A group picture from a different angle. Suzu (the small girl wearing the cow outfit) is even smaller than Azunyan!

Everyone donated their phones to make platforms so that Azunyan can have a drink XD

Big Azunyan only need one platform to have a drink.

Say hello to my little friend!
I took the above photo before the beam rifle was removed by his owner who was not pleased with the... extension ^^;

It's actually one of the member's birthday the day before... Let's call her "SH" for now. She brought a very chocolatey cake for us to enjoy. For some reason, that scene from Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei comes to mind... Thankfully there is an even number of us.

BIG piece of cake! We split the cake 6-ways. We were definitely full at the end ^^;

The Candyman brought his 1/48 Gundam. I was actually looking forward to see the Gundam. Ah and he also posed Azunyan in the Macross Nyan Nyan CM pose, by the way. He's a master at posing I have to say! Oh and that stand, I made it half an hour before I had to leave for the restaurant ^^;;;

So I knew I had to have a princess carry pose with Azunyan and the Gundam! Very cute!

And even sitting on the Gundam's shoulder!
After we finished our lunch, we split up since some people had to go to work... I went with JL and Candyman to Metrotown where we met another member of the group and we hung out for a while.

Ah... Who dropped this beam saber? I-I don't want to drop it!
Bubble tea! We had some more desert while we were at Metrotown... After we're full we ate some more!? Safe to say I didn't eat dinner that night ^^;

The cat is NOT out of the bag!

Gundam and his shopping bag...

Catch that Azunyan thief!

Azundam! Ikimasu!

My bubble tea! Don't touch or feel the wrath of my beam saber!

A new K-ON member??

Disturbing ^^;;; Bionic Azunyan?

So when are they going to make Gundam Nendoroids?
Nyaa! I want my guitar back!
It was a very fun meet as you can see! And perhaps this is just the beginning... The official Vancouver BJD meet post coming up next! Oh and any of the Vancouver BJD group can let me know if I'm missing anything that I should put here, please let me know. Thanks!
