Introducing my 2nd doll: Ikkitousen Great Guardians dollfie dream dynamite Kanu Unchou (関羽雲長). Kanu is released at Dolpa 20 which was held on January 10, 2009 with an MSRP of ¥58,000. I actually never watched any of the Ikkitousen anime, but when I first saw photos of dollfie dream Kanu, I was captivated by her face and decided to get her if possible. I actually found her with a very small mark up on Yahoo Japan Auction, so I place the bid without much thought. Kanu comes with metalic 20mm animetic eyes, original head and original wig. She has a dollfie dream dynamite body with dark skin color and a large bust. This makes her very distinct among all the other dollfie dreams released to date. But it also makes her a bit difficult to pose and care for as there are no hands available that matches her color and can’t get any other optional or spare parts for her because they are either not available for the dollfie dream dynamite body or the skin color doesn’t match. So I will have to get by with the two set of hand that came with her and be extra careful with her. There’s more information on her at Volks’ official web page (in Japanese). She arrived together with my 3rd doll Tohsaka Rin, which I will introduce later. 😉

I bought this real princess onepiece made by AZone International a while back. However I was really disappointed at the coloir. The color was a very dark red and personally I always like the vibrant bright red better. I soaked the dress in vinegar to get rid of some of the lose dyes. But it stained the white frill really bad. I a half mad mood, I through the dress in some undiluted liquid bleach. Surprisingly, the bleach actually bleached the dark pigment away and left me with a much brighter red color. Well I’m glad it worked out because otherwise I won’t have these pictures.
So here it is. Saber with the slightly “modified” AZone International’s real princess onepiece, Volks’ long socks and AZone International’s heart buckle strap shoes.

Dollfie dream Saber alter (see Volks’ office web page in Japanese) is a limited item released on Dolpa 20. Since I already have dollfie Saber, I decided not to get another similar doll. However, I do like the Saber alter dress set. I saw some one selling on Yahoo Auction Japan only the dress set, so I grabbed it.
This dress is almost entirely in dark color including the sleeves, so I actually ended up purchasing a specially made body foundation that allow me to cover Saber in a white tights before putting the dress set on. This time no staining like that of the Saber maid dress incident occurred.
