Sundress Shizuko

August 1, 2011

Recently acquired an SD sized breezy pink sundress with black lace like trim through eBay and thought to showcase some photos of Shizuko wearing it as it’s perfect for the summer season.

This Dollfie Dream photo set contains images of Shizuko posed mostly in the light of the evening sun, but on a some of the photos a custom preset was applied during post processing to create a different atmosphere.

Blue eyes

Above photo is my favorite shot from this set, alas was not able to explore other poses as the sun started to set and soon the light was no longer bright enough to continue. But am very glad was still able to make this particular capture.

Looking

Generally would not recommend acquiring Dollfie Dream dolls or their related goods through eBay, mostly due to the exorbitant prices of most auctions. However, when I spotted this SD sized sundress on eBay for a small price, decided to take the chance.

Shizuko and shadows

Taken on a different day, love the stark contrast here between the shadows of the window blinds and the sunlight, lends itself perfectly to the “300” style preset applied on the Raw file in Adobe Lightroom.

Curves

Even a modest M bust DDII body type can show shapely curves when the lighting and angle are right.

Shizuko's gaze

Considering the modest price of this sundress and the advantageous exchange rate, thought it was worth the risk and made the purchase on eBay.

Longing

Always liked how simply changing the viewing angle, Shizuko’s customized DDH02 head its facial sculpt gives an entirely different aura to her expression. Above it could be seen as a fragile, doubtful expression, while below it seems assertive, stern even.

Blue eyes from the shadows

Must say that the fit of the sundress on the DDII type body equipped with the M bust isn’t superb as it sits loose at the back.

Waiting

Tried the fit of this dress on Yoko’s more curvaceous DDDy type body and the result was similar, so seems the SD body type abdomen may be significantly wider than that of a Dollfie Dream.

Anticipation

Hope you enjoyed this photo series, you can see more of my Dollfie Dream photography on Flickr.

    Ohhh, looking good! I like how these shots turned out~Shizuko can use some L bust or peach pai to help fill that dress >:D

    Thanks! Glad you like them. ^^
    Wouldn’t mind an alternate chest piece, but L bust and Peach Pai are a bit too big for my taste, a Peach Pai sized just below the L bust but larger than M would definitely be an instant buy for me.

    oooh.. nice pictures Smithy! Amazing how the mood of the pictures cn go from relaxed to sensual with just a little bit of lighting. Are dolfie hair/wigs attached to the head? Or can they be removed and changed?

    Thanks. ^^
    Dollfie Dream wigs can be freely changed, they are (synthetic) wig hairs woven into an elastic cap that is pulled over the smooth domed vinyl head. (Often a protective cloth or vinyl cap is put in between the head and wig to prevent color dye transfer to the vinyl head.)
    I don’t change them that often though as I’m quite satisfied with their current look. But a wig change can mean an entire personalty/look change for a Dollfie so it adds to the creative aspect.

    Those are some nice pictures you’ve taken for your girls :3 Excellent lighting too~
    I so do envy that France has a longer day time around this season (at least in Paris it was). No matter how fast I get home everything is dark by then><

    Those bloody French, how dare they! Lol, I’m actually in the country just above them… =P
    Ah, well we’ve had plenty of gray, overcast days here too, but some days the sun was out until well into the evening. ^^

    I really like your use of shadows. It really elevates these gorgeous photos to another level. Shizuko is pretty as always. Love her sundress too. Fits her well. ^ ^

    Lovely photos. The lighting and shadows make for some very seductive and artistic shots. The sundress looks great on her. Gotta love good deals 🙂
