It’s nearly the end of the year and despite my lazy efforts I never did finish writing all the missing doll meet posts. So in their place here’s some photos I took over Christmas.
Last weekend was TADDMUG’s (Toronto-Area Dollfie Dream Meetup Group) monthly meet. We met up at Marché in downtown Toronto, one of our usual restaurants as they’ll happily accommodate our unpredictable group size rather easily. It was a smaller group than we’ve had in the past but it was also ridiculously cold outside, so I don’t really blame anyone for not wanting to leave the warmth of their home. It was almost cold enough that temperatures read in both °F and °C would have been the same! Continue reading Toronto Doll Meet 15.2: Valentine’s
Being the first meet of 2015 I guess some people were still recovering from Christmas/New Years or perhaps fulfilling their new years resolutions or something, as the meet was a bit smaller. We were “just” nine, and were out numbered by dolls two to one. The theme was sweaters and while not everyone had one, everyone did look bundled up for winter so that worked just as well.

It’s winter once again here in Canada and of course that means indoor only meets. The Toronto Dollfie group met at GoForTea (Gopher T) again and took over the party room. We also annoyed other customers by using our flashes all over the restaurant which made me feel intrusive and a little bit bad, but no one seemed to mind despite it. So that was nice of them.

The last time I was at Spencer Gorge Wilderness Area, it was a surprisingly warm day in the middle of winter. I took my motorcycle and Tsuru no Yakata’s Horo figure there for some photos. People thought I was a bit nuts riding my sport bike in the winter, but hey it was 11°C! Kind of similar this time around, except it was much warmer, not winter, and I spent hours there capturing sunset. Oh and there were leaves on the trees! I guess the only similar bit was I brought Horo again (and Alice) and rode a motorcycle.
A while back, after returning from Colorado, I visited relatively local Dollfie collectors and friends, Plastic Fantastic (PF) and her husband, to catch up on life, the universe, and everything. PF wanted to see the mori outfits I’d bought and I wanted to see the 25 dolls she has again. Ok maybe I really just wanted to see Amber, the doll PF used to convince me I needed a Dollfie in my life.
Earlier in the week, when the weather here was nice and warmer, I hastily decided to try my hand at a sunset timelapse with Horo and Alice. And while I generally feel I failed to achieve what I intended, I learned a bunch about the process. Continue reading Colorado Trip 4.5: Time-lapse
On Tuesday I decided it was about time I visited Fairplay, Colorado, the real South Park. I’d been to Colorado four times now and still hadn’t visited, and last year I actually passed right by it on my way to Weston Pass but had no idea at the time. So I went.
Despite having been in Colorado now for two weeks already, I’ve barely done anything. I’ve taken a couple cruises through the foot hills, but not taken a single photo until yesterday when Gibwar and myself took our girls up the 14er known as Mt Evans. You may recall I rode up it last year as well.
Yesterday I went out for a little ride on the motorcycle to find Ontario’s last historical covered bridge, in West Montrose. Well, it’s definitely there, but that wasn’t not the highlight of the ride.
