Dream Lorina

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…
