New DD girl, Kyouko
Had already mentioned on Twitter a while ago that had once more succumbed to the Dollfie Dream mania, making a new acquisition. Had also uploaded this teaser on Flickr a few days ago, but still need to properly introduce this new DD girl.
So without further ado, I present Kyouko to you.
It all started with wanting to acquire Volks’ new DDS (Dollfie Dream Sister) type body which was launched with the Marisa & Reimu dolls, but wasn’t really interested in acquiring a full set of one of these Touhou girls. So I bought a separate DDS body on auction.
Family portrait. A family of three… like the Minami family girls?
Have always been very pleased with Shizuko’s custom DDH03 head made by ももいろ＊マンボウ, who creates terrific Dollfie Dream and other custom heads.
Following ももいろ＊マンボウ’s new releases on Yahoo! Japan Auction through Google Reader RSS subscription, my interest was piqued when I spotted this new custom head based on the DDH02 Volks head.
Having bought a separate DDS body on Yahoo! Japan Auction let myself get swept away and splurged on getting that new head as well to create a third DD.
Even though she sports the smaller DDS body which is only 50cm high compared to the DDII and DDDy’s 60cm height, decided that Kyouko is Shizuko’s older sister. Though Yoko is still the oldest.
The Japanese name 鏡子 uses the character for mirror, while had pondered about several names before she arrived, settled on that name once had installed these Volks animetic type G green eyes. With such a large dark pupils, felt that name that reminisces of a mirror suited her best.
A few other names I had considered were Himeko, Natusko, Atsuko,… some which had also pondered about when first got Shizuko.
Said I’d limit myself to two DD considering their significant price tag, but definitely must stop at three. Still hope you look forward to more Dollfie photo shenanigans of Kyouko soon.
