Rin with Homurabara Academy uniform set

Homurabara Academy (穂群原学園) is the school that Tohsaka Rin attends. The Homurabara Academ uniform set is a dress set that was released together with dollfie dream Tohsaka Rin. Volks’ official web page (in Japanese) has more information on the dress set. After I got dollfie Rin from Yahoo Japan Auction, I won this uniform set on Volks USA web lottery.

The blouse only with the ribbon has a nice clean look for Rin.

Cat walk at the zoo

Went to the zoo today and tried to visit all of the animals in the Metro Toronto Zoo that belongs to the cat family (Felidae). Here’s a list of all the big cats visited:

  • Siberian Tiger (Panthera tigris altaica)
  • Snow Leopard (Uncia uncia)
  • Jaguar (Panthera onca)
  • Cougar (Puma concolor)
  • Lion (Panthera leo)
  • Caracal (Caracal caracal)
  • Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)
  • Sumatran Tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae)
  • Cloud Leopard (Neofelis nebulosa)

I think that’s all the big cats in the Toronto Zoo, let me know if I missed any. Took nearly all day to visit all the cats. Unfortunately wasn’t really able to get a good photo for most of them. So here’s what I’ve got for the day.

Saber plain clothes set

Saber’s plain clothes set (イバーのお出かけセット) was one of the first cloth set released by Volks for dollfie Saber. Here’s Volks’ official web page (in Japanese) for the dress set. Since it was so old, it took a long time before it was spotted on the auction and finally I was able to get my hand on it. I finally own all of the Volks’ original dress set that was released for dollfie Saber. Looking at the photos, all the efforts are worth it. Saber is just super kawaii in this dress.

This is an old clothing set from Volks so the quality cannot be compared with the later sets. The fit was not spot on and they did not line the dark fabrics. But I have Saber in a body stocking all the time to protect her from the stains anyway so it should be fine.

Dollfie dream Tohsaka Rin

Today I’ll introduce my 3rd doll: Type-Moon Fate / hollow ataraxia dollfie dream Tohsaka Rin (遠坂凛). Rin is a limited item released on Dolpa 21, which was held on May 5th 2009 in Tokyo, Japan. She has an MSRP of ¥48,000, I have to get her through a proxy from Yahoo Auction Japan so the actual cost is considerably higher. But since I’ve already got dollfie Saber, naturally I have to get Rin to keep Saber company. She comes with 22mm animetic eyes, original head and original wig. She has a dollfie dream base body II with normal skin color and a medium bust. Volks’ official web page (in Japanese) for DD Tohsaka Rin has more information. It arrived from Japan on June 5th, 2009.

Here’s Rin in her box.
