Hong Kong Dollism Plus 7: Day 1

So here it is: my Dollism Plus 7 Day 1 post! To say that the event was overwhelming is an understatement. I never thought I'd get to see this many BJDs and owners in one place! It's an experience I won't forget.

There were a lot of BJD clothes and accessories shops in attendance, the biggest of which were Crobidoll, Lati Doll, Switch, Peak's Woods, Dollheart, Leeke World, Blue Fairy, and Nine9Style. Other notable brands were Spirit Doll, Angell-Studio, Coco Tribe, Popodoll, Ringdoll, DikaDoll, Dollfie World, Dollzone, Doll Leaves, and Ruby Red Galleria.


Everywhere I looked, there was a ton of beautiful mori outfits and accessories, which I both loved and hated. I wanted so many things, but most of them were not in Blair's size or were not within my budget! x_x


There were also gorgeous displays in the con! Kudos to all the people behind these beautiful booths! It must have taken lots of effort to pose the dolls and create the costumes and sets.


I planned on taking note of the shop names so that I could label my photos appropriately, but like I said, I got overwhelmed. I failed as a blogger, haha! Hopefully the sheer amount of photos will more than make up for my failure.

WARNING: THIS POST IS IMAGE-HEAVY. 


Angell-Studio's display. I wanted that big girl's outfit. ;w;

D'aww!

Loved how beautiful this set was. Check out that gorgeous swing!

The booth owner allowed us to take photos using their set! Here's Blair, sitting pretty on the little table.

Miette, having a short picnic with a teeny doggy.

My friend Nick and her doll, Violet, were our buddies as we went around Dollism. Here's Violet, posing by the kiddie swing. x]

Twin dollies!

Pretty! She reminds me of the White Swan. *u*

Oh man I wish I remembered what booth this was from. I loved their display.

RINGDOLL!

This looked out of place in Ringdoll's display, haha. Still pretty though.

Sexy military guys, at your fanservice.

Argh my grainy photography doesn't do this handsome guy justice. ;;

SQUEE! How adorable is Time to Daydream's display, honestly?

Saber Dollfie Dream

Awww. x3

Loooove her armor!

TTYA's booth! They were one of the few booths that sold casual clothing.

Huhuhu that teal hoodie! ;n;

They make the best jeans!

Tiny clothes! Why so expensive huhu!

This was the first time I saw an Unoa in person. So cute! ;w;

Frills~~~

This is the first of many shoe porn photos. *A*

So much want from this booth. >w<

Angel Garden was one of my favorite displays during the whole event. ;w;

AHHH SO CUTE! WHY WERE YOU FOR PRE-ORDER ONLY? TTATT

iDollZoo had the cutest tiny shoes! They're really detailed, too. AMAZING.

iDollZoo's display. They make gorgeous stuff.

Another pair of beautiful mori girls.

Aren't those outfits cute? ^u^

Leeke World's dolly heads.

Ardeur de L'amour! SO MUCH WANT!!!

I had a major dolly crush on that boy on the right. > 3<

Why don't you guys make stuff for MSDs and tinies? TTATT

Violet with a Slytherin boy, heehee!

Loved Memento's diorama as well.

Man, I really want a wooden shelf like that now, too!

More mori girl goodness ; 3;

I kept on checking out the eyes for sale. I think eyes are my second most favorite doll accessory next to shoes.

Spotted a gorgeous DOC Pitts! She looked like Violet from an alternate universe LOL.

These boys were adorbs! Need I say that I also loved this display?

Those twine deer antlers were tempting, but I had my eyes on a different set of antlers!

MORE CUTE TINIES. 8D

Honey Dolly! I bought a couple of dresses for Miette here. :D

Pretty knick-knacks that can be used by both dollies and owners!

Beautiful dolly headdresses

Oh hello there, Mr. Hot Pirate #1.

It was also a pleasure meeting you, Mr. Hot Pirate #2!

Mori stuff again. I was beyond bitter by the time I took this photo. T_T

Why couldn't these have been available in Blair's size? *sigh*

...600HKD. Huh. I guess I should count myself lucky these weren't in Blair's size after all LOL.

HAHA WAIT I TAKE IT BACK. THIS IS MY FAVORITE DISPLAY IN THE ENTIRE CON. XD

I really wish I had shrink ray with me.

Le Matre Chat! I've been following their blog ever since I started the hobby.

Their display did not disappoint. How inspiring. *A*

They make me want a Peak's Woods doll. *^*

Look at all the beautiful details on this little dress!

I wanted one of these for myself!

These, too! Dx

AAHHH PUKIFEES AND LATI YELLOWS!

Caged cuties! Wait, that sounded wrong... o_O

rRabbit Shop! Ugh my hearttttt </3

How awesome are these? I wanted one, but I wouldn't know what to do with it.

CROBIDOLL!!!

CROBI GIRLS, FINALLY

What's Crobidoll without the handsome guys?

More handsomeness, teehee!

CUTIE 8'D

Boys boys boys

He reminded me of B2ST's Dongwoon! x3

Do you recognize these beautiful clothes and shoes?

If you're like me, you probably do! I drool over their stuff often. :((

IT'S NINE9STYLE'S BOOTH! Sadly, I didn't purchase anything from them. Money, where art thou? ;w;

Ruby Red Galleria's shoe display

DOLLHEART. HNGGH.

These sets were soooo beautiful but they were equally expensive. T_T

Peak's Woods display was in partnership with Dollheart. They had an Alice in Wonderland theme going on. Here's the Red Queen.

The White Queen~

BLOODY ALICE!

I'm guessing these were the Twiddles!

Peak's Woods tinies! I had to resist the urge to pocket one of them. ;n;


SO CUTE



Cheshire, White Rabbit and Baby Alice.

Mori Moth! She was one of the dolls I wanted originally.

Is it obvious that I love Peak's Woods sculpts? x]

This makes me want to get a boy soon. >_>

Heee such chunky bodies. :'D

Look at those dresses omg >_<

IT'S THE TRAPPE FAMILY SINGERS BLUE FAIRY! They look so cute in uniform. XD

After going around the place for 2 hours, we took a break. Here's a photo of Miette wearing some of her new stuff.

Miette had a whole new outfit, but Blair only got a pair of shoes and a headband that day. T_T

Violet got a pretty wig and gorgeous glass eyes! She looked so different after. Love it!

Some of the ManikaManila people :3

LOL We look so tired here.

We were all excited to try on new stuff.

Aaaand that's it for the first day of HKDP7! Stay tuned for the part 2. Thanks for viewing!
