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.

After a couple of years of frustration followed by a marathoning of Mighty Car Mods on YouTube I decided it was finally time to fix the hatch on my car. More importantly, now that winter is pretty much here in Canada, I’ll be driving the car a lot instead of the bike and will really probably need access to my luggage space. So here are some photos and description of how that went down.
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.
With Anime North and subsequently Doll North last month and my choosing not to attend, I didn’t get to meet up with everyone until this month. It certainly felt like quite a long time, so much so that I’d actually gone out to take photos without a doll meet, which is something else that hadn’t happened in quite a while (though I haven’t posted them yet). Even still I don’t feel as though I talked to everyone much, maybe I did, but I mostly remember desperately trying to get a good photo in various places with Horo and Alice and mostly failing. Continue reading Toronto Doll Meet 14.6: High Park
Suddenly felt like taking a bunch of photos yesterday. The weather was actually sunny when I took them, but once I started to process them a thunderstorm had rolled in and I felt that concept suited the photos better. I hope you enjoy some fakery!
