Yuki Nagato Dollfie Dream II
Evelyn T. Mutsu
Yay! I managed to get this done earlier than I thought, so here it is, some heavily stylised photos of the Evelyn, the Yuki Nagato Dollfie Dream II.
She still only has the clothes that came packaged with her, so I couldn’t really do much else. Extra clothes are on the way though, so maybe a lil variety will cheer her up.
A word of warning before we move on, if you’re not a fan of doll joints, you may want to reconsider reading on, otherwise read on!
I’ve still yet to get a carry case for Evelyn, so I can’t really take her outside without drawing attention (if I was a girl it’d be a different matter) so I had to make do at home. Evelyn is featured here on… my bed ^^; My room is pretty cluttered so it wasn’t the best choice. This was more for experimentation rather than a full blown photo shoot.
Oh god, getting the camera to take decent photos indoors is hell with this aged camera. The lighting is quite hard to work with, and setting a mini-tripod on the bed isn’t the most stable thing lol. No one was at home so I didn’t get interrupted for the shoot, I wonder what my mother would think…?
I’ve tried to keep the visible doll joints to a minimum with clothing and poses, but there are some. For those who have a doll joint fetish, sorry lol.
Ok, so this isn’t really a “figure” in our sense. For those unfamiliar with Dollfies, there’s a very brief rundown in my previous post. The build of Evelyn is quite remarkable, being a vinyl dollfie instead of the traditional resin makes her really light weight, and squishy (yes, even her “eyes” are squishy).
Another difference is her inner frame, as most ball joint dolls (BJDs) are strung with internal elastic fibres. What that means is that Evelyn is able to keep her pose easier than other BJDs. Her field of movement is quite limiting tho, she can’t really reach her own mouth, I’m not quite sure if it’s just me, or if the dollfie requires modding to make this happen.
As mentioned, was quite difficult to get decent shots, I’m not sure if my camera is showing it’s age. Had to throw out obviously blurred shots while I was taking this photo shoot. I also didn’t want Evelyn wearing the uniform since I think I can find a much more suitable place for that instead of my room, so I went for something more… casual XD
The photos themselves have been modified extensively, tried to go for a more stylised look, whether this is a good or bad thing I’m still not sure lol.
I hope no one is greatly offended by this photo shoot, but given the audience of PVC lovers, I don’t think it’s a major concern ^^; Tell me otherwise if it is tho.
Quite an experimental photo shoot, larger subject, heavy manipulation and indoors. I’m quite happy on how it turned out, though I’m still not sure if its good. I would love to get a DSLR and start furthering my skills in macro shots, but alas, money is the issue as it always is. Perhaps if I stop buying so many figures…or start selling some of the ones I own.
