F is for Fighter! (and Frankie!)

So, yesterday I found a command line app so I could extract saved images from my PS3, and then decompress them.  As you know if you've read my blog since the beginning, I love the girls from the Dead Or Alive video game series.  I mostly love the volleyball sidegames, but I still buy the fighting games (even though I'm really bad at fighting games - I'm the epitome of button mashing).  In Dead Or Alive 5: Ultimate, there's a photo mode, where you can take pictures of already viewed movies.  So, I used this app to extract those photos.  I think it turned out pretty nicely.  Here's a couple of examples, featuring Leifang's Costume 1 and Costume 2:







I know I'll be doing all the girls and all their costumes (once I have enough money to download them all, that is).  But, there are enough to unlock that it will take me a while to take pictures of all their outfits.  I'm not really doing this for any other reason than just for myself.  I used to have a DOAX site once upon a time.  If they truly announce DOAX3, then I may consider starting it up again.


Back to the doll world, today's letter is brought to you by Frankie.

D is for Drusilla

... and Day Trip.  That's why I didn't update yesterday.  I went to a doll club meeting, my first in quite a while.  The day trip also meant that I had to not watch the new episode of Sailor Moon Crystal until well into the evening!  Wahhhh.  Sailor Mercury's transformation was SO pretty!  The animation quality on the second episode took a very noticeable dip, though.  The story is still sticking *very* closely to the manga, though.

Here's Drusilla, formerly Ambitious Kesenia.  She's a very polarizing face mold.  I think you either love her or hate her, and there really isn't much grey area in there.  I love her, and I'm sad that she's not a member of the new Core 8 of characters.  But I hope we see her soon, maybe as an IT direct release at convention?  That would be cool.

C is for Camilla

It's also for crap.  I had my window opened the other day, and it started getting really windy, and my drapes really blew... right into my doll shelf.  They got tangled with Nadine (Dark Romance Giselle), and she fell on the floor and one of her legs broke off.  UGGGGHHHHHH!  I glued it back on, but I think I'll be in the market for a Caucasian body when I get some cash together.  It doesn't necessarily have to be Nu.Face.  Just something Caucasian that's affordable, like the FR handspeak torpedo boob body.

But Camilla is healthy and together, showing off one of my fave things - black and white stripes:

A is for Anja

I figured since I still do have a lot of pics to upload, maybe I'd start doing it randomly by alphabet.  I haven't actually checked if this will work (I do have a girl for every name of the alphabet, but I might have to insert some photo shoots so there might be some delay between each girl).

My first, and so far only, Anja.

Where Did All My Money Go? (Diana Redressed)

Diana's fairly innocent in the theft of my money by IT.  She got me a few hundred bucks in a sale, along with Costume Drama Giselle, but now the money's all gone again.  After the Poppy jizz-fest that was IFDC, that left many a keyboard stuck with semen or... the female version of semen that doesn't have a cute name.  Vaginal discharge just sounds like a medical issue, and vaginal lubricant sounds like something you buy in the automotive section of Wal-Mart.  Semenstrual...?  (That's pretty awesome because it sounds like cement).  Vajizz? Fem-cum?  I like mashing words together.

What was this about again....?

Oh, right.  Yesterday, I got the email to pay for the upgrade doll I ordered, Fashion Explorer Vanessa.  So I did.  Then today we got the email to pay the second part of our convention packet, so I paid that too, and now all my money is gone. :(  And then I'll need money again when we get the email packet about the convention information, and the convention collection.  And there's also the lottery for the 3 Poppy dolls from IFDC.  I seriously don't think I'll be able to enter for those, unless I sell them at a mark-up.  Which I may have to do.  I don't want to do that, like... at ALL, but I need the money.

Here's a farewell photoshoot with Diana - I just didn't bond with her like I thought I would:
