Chihaya looks pretty in this super-long pale lavender wig. The wig is from Mandarake’s Himekazura line, which I’m a big fan of.
The arrival of Sanjie interrupted my sewing plans, so I took a break to work on Anthy’s faceup. Also, over the winter I got an DDH-09 of my own, so I concepted and started painting her as well. Her faceup is modeled off Ranko Kanzaki who has a similar but less full mouth. Upside down…Details

When I got ahold of Ranko Kanzaki’s outfit, on a whim I decided to try it on Lorina. For the most part it fits pretty well! She has the high-heel unjointed SDGrG legs currently, so the shoes wouldn’t work and the stockings don’t go quite as high as they should. The wristlet for her right…Details
