Hi Everyone, on two different days I took a few pictures of my girls Rin and Mirai outdoor in the garden.
April is an ugly season this year and Spring is not really how it should be, anyway a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to enjoy the few warmer days since the year began. To practise the outdoor photography I chose the family garden. A year ago I planted a cherry tree, it grow a little and offered a pretty cherry blossom in pastel pink.
Do you also like the cherry blossoms? In Japan the sheer amount of planted cherry trees creates an overwhelimg beautiful scenery. My small Prunus serrulata “Kiku-shidare-Zakura”, of course can’t compete with trees that have grown since decades, but the fluffy, flourishing pastel pink petals have a nice volume to be useful for doll photography.
Yeah, that is Kagamine, Rin. Volks did a really good job with her (out of factory) makeup, she is very cute and expressive, as you’ve probably noticed she has a different wig, I’ve really tried to work with her stock wig, but it was impossible for me get a decent look with that stiff thing. I ordered a new wig, since Rin reminded me of Prince Eugen from Kancolle, I decided for such a style, it’s a pretty, silky smooth wig and so I also have a more personal looking Rin,
My very first doll was Mirai, a Smartdoll. A few months ago I’ve send her to beauty salon, the Face up artist Atelier Ryukku gave her a new beautiful look, I always was a big fan of her works and style and was very happy as she accepted my request. Since I had Mirai I gave her the nickname “Lady” now her look makes it more fitting, I love her more ladylike appearance. I thought about trying green eyes for her next and maybe a natural color wig.
For the outdoor shooting Rin was supported by a saddle type base from SELEN’S. These are really nice and reliable and most importantly the height adjustable support rod is made of very thin metal, this way the low profile base is easier to “hide” in pictures.
That is all for today, see you again soon.
