About

Hi all! My name is Nate and I live in Dublin on the Emerald Isle ie. Ireland ^^

I started out helping organise anime cons here in Ireland since 2005 and was doing it until 2015 ^^ During that time I helped found some of the cons in Ireland such as Eirtakon, Nom-con and Anime Dublin and delighted to see them getting better and better. I still help out a bit and currently enjoy selling some anime merch in the trade halls. :)

I was a fan of pokemon, Dragonball Z, Gundam Wing, and what few anime's I saw on TV for a few years previous but my obsession really took off when I started studying in DCU in 2004 and met some friends whom I leached anime off. After that my obsession grew until 2007 when I started collecting figures ^^ It's become a major hobby for me and mu SO and we have maybe too many figures but we just love collecting them.

In 2010 my girlfriend introduced me to Dollfies which I wasn't that interested in until she showed me Dollfie Dreams (more specifically Louise) and have been collecting them as well ever since.

Anyhoo feel free to chat and I'll get back to you soon ^^

Archeotech (6 days ago) #17424044Her wig can be a bit tricky to care for but mine also gets frizzy from time to time. ^^; What I recommend is using a toothrush to brush it and wig oil which you can get from Volks. First you should just brush out the fringe as for whatever reason Volks put in a lot of wig wax and it looks closer to the prototype and more natural if you just brush it out. For the rest of the hair I sprayed in a little wig careful not to get any on the face and then grabbed a section of hair and gently brushed it starting from the top and working the hairs back in place until you get to the bottom, Then you take the next bit and do the same. takes a while but the wig will look a lot better with most of the frizz gone. If you don't want to get wig oil you might be able to manage with a bit of water but it will probably frizz again. Never use a hairdryer on it by the way as not sure it's heatproof. Hope that helps! :)
The outfit is by Volks and I got it for about 4000yen on manadarake. There's a similar set in the upcoming Volks after event but you'll have to add it to cart within minutes of going on sale or it'll probably sell out. ^^; I would say to look at the outfits as new figures. They are where all the detail is, so a nice outfit really makes your doll stand out. You'll probably have her in that outfit for at least a few months and then swap to something else, but you will use it again or sell it on and get most of your money back. It's like buying 3 prize figures or a really nice premium figure. Nice to have a bit of both maybe? :)
Can't really go wrong though with a yukata for $15! o.o Nice little find there :)


Yeah no wig balm.. And i guess i will get the baby toothbrush against the frizzles with water spray , thats what mainly bothers me (frizzles)
Im too afraid of messing her up if i comb her hair (so the wax removing part)

Im not too keen on buying directly from volks as prices are high plus shipping and customs isnt worth it.. I try mandarake perhaps :)

Yeah even less as i haggled it down to 11 usd

Archeotech (14 days ago) #17245332I dunno I have to be very harsh on myself these days with figures but that is a very good price! My favourite Louise figures are probably always going to be the Alter range.
At some point I should go through my wish list ^^;


Hmm yes ofc but louise is best hehe shouldnt pass on her and shes cheap. Anyways it is up to you so i showed the review so you can see if you like her.

And yup i agree alter is best ;) my fav is white bustier :D 2nd strawberry punk and 3rd atelier sai neko louise :3 but every louise i own has something.. Tho if i had to pick my least favorites.l it is chara ani louise and nekomimi louise (with the mouse)
