I’m so deep in the neemo trap that it’s not even funny, lol! (･∀･；) Darn you Azone for releasing two lines that I cannot resist at the same time!! But yeah, in today’s package we have Pink! Pink! a la Mode GrayxPink Lycee and Otogi no Kuni Swan Lake Raili. ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ Only Lycee will be staying with me, Raili will be going to a new home shortly. However, her outfit will be staying for my Majokko Raili, Suzume. I reasoned that Swan Lake Raili and Majokko Raili look similar enough, so I shouldn’t keep this doll as well. (゜▽゜;)
There are a lot of photos so perhaps we’ll just move along instead of babbling away…
The box! ヽ( ･∀･)ﾉ I’ve been ordering my neemos from HS now because Amiami lists them for much higher prices. Figured I may as well order the dolls elsewhere for less and pay for EMS shipping.
Ooh, the peachy pink packaging paper is back!╰(・∇・╰) I got this coloured paper with my first neemo, Haru Usagi-san Mia. HS remembers I like this peachy pink colour, haha! (*´艸`*)
Eep, two dolly boxes to open~ ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ
Time to remove that bubblewrap!
Both have such pretty boxes~ Lycee is my favourite from the Pink! Pink! a la Mode series, I just adore that combination of Gray & Pink! ♥（ﾉ´∀`）
Unpacked Lycee first~ ♥ She’s my Rika’s alter ego, the idol Lisa! I love everything about her outfit!! (人´ω｀*)♡
I didn’t undress her so I just took a photo of the leaflet… I love that outfit so much that she’s going to wear it until I grow bored of it (if ever) lol~ ♥
So cuuute! ヾ(o≧∀≦o)ﾉﾞ She’s got really loose legs, though, and those shoes don’t help because they provide no support for her ankles… gotta do the hot-glue sueding trick for her asap!
She looks even more cheeky than my Chocolate Ice Lycee, haha~ (๑´ㅂ`๑) But really cute, nevertheless! Her hair is such a lovely shade of brown~
Took some nicer test shots of her with a proper background~ (´,,•ω•,,)♡ I wanted to take a matching photo to the one I took of Princess Yuzu when she arrived.
And a photo with Rika, my Sweets a la Mode Chocolate Ice Lycee. ☆ヾ(*´▽｀)ﾉ This GrayxPink Lycee has a new type of eye paint. It’s interesting how different they look already because of a different eye colour and small changes in the iris!
Then it was Raili’s turn~ Oh my gosh that lovely outfit!! (/∇＼*)｡o○♡
Had to try on the whole outfit to see Raili’s default look in person. Soooo cute!! (*´ ˘ `*).｡oO ( ♡ )
Aughh, don’t look at me like that… I can’t keep you!! Lol~ (｡￫∀￩｡)
The outfit’s got so many different pieces, and all of them pretty and detailed! Silver Butterfly’s designs are just so, so, so pretty~ ´͈ ᵕ `͈ ♡°◌̊
Some details, because I can… ! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) I absolutely adore the corset top~ ♥ That knitted hooded cape is actually a bit more creamy in colour than the rest of the outfit.
That swan print on the skirt is so sweet! (人*´∀｀)+ﾟ:｡*ﾟ+
I was pleasantly surprised that she’s got a pantyhose instead of just stockings! ヽ(´∇｀)ﾉ
As usual, I’ll be translating the story.
A long time ago
Deep, deep within the forest
in a small castle
lived a beautiful princess
A witch, who was jealous of the beautiful princess, cast a spell on her and the princess turned into a swan
The princess, who had been turned into a swan, could regain her human form only under the moonlight in the forest of the night
Several months passed (I really don’t get this phrase 幾月か渦ぎた項 at all so this is just a guess)
The witch headed to the forest of the night to check on the princess’ situation
The princess had befriended the forest’s animals and lived happily with them
The witch had thought that the princess would be lonely, so she was disappointed when she saw the smiling princess
The witch had been jealous at the time that she cast the spell on the princess
However, in reality the witch had wanted to become friends with the beautiful and kind princess
“Would you become friends with me… ?”
The princess nodded gently at the witch’s words
“Yes. But please lift the spell that turns me into a swan in exchange” she smiled
Since then you would sometimes see the two beautiful swans snuggle friendlily within the forest
Then I changed Raili into a dress that I’m making for her so that she doesn’t have to go to her new home in the nude! ヾ(・ω・*)ノ I also introduced her to my Railis. Here’s Bambi-san Raili, Tsumugi.
And Majokko Raili (DS ver.), Suzume. Too much cuteness all around! (o´〰`o)♡*✲ﾟ*｡
I took a close up of their faces, because this Swan Lake Raili has some changes in her eyes. They’re all around smaller and the irises are a little different too. And obviously the upper eyelid is painted lighter as well on Swan Lake Raili.
One photo of Raili in her dress. ٩(^ᴗ^)۶ I added some decorations later and made her white socks and a fur collar to go with it as well.
Took a photo of the Raili bodies. My Majokko Raili’s body is on the far right, back then Raili came with S-bust and M-legs. Starting from Bambi-san Raili, she comes with a full M-type body: M-bust and M-legs. Bambi Raili’s body is in the middle, and Swan lake Raili’s on the left.
Close up of the busts. Swan Lake M, Bambi-san M and Majokko S.
Then I put the Swan Lake outfit on Suzu. Sooooo cute!! ♡(˃͈ દ ˂͈ ༶ )
Such a sweetie~ (´ ▽｀).。ｏ♡
All Railis in one photo! ♡〜٩( ˃́▿˂̀ )۶〜♡ Swan lake Raili is shorter because she’s not wearing shoes like the other two.
Mugi got the creamy cape, because it matched well with her own creamy white dress! I also put Ookami-san Himeno’s dress underneath for a cute layered look. Two happy Railis with the cost of one outfit, haha! (ᗒᗨᗕ)
I’m very happy with both Lycee and Swan Lake Raili’s outfit~ (ﾉ^ヮ^)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧ These two lines will be the death of me, I swear… although luckily the Pink! Pink! a la Mode line comes to an end soon because there are only five girls in the Sahra’s a la mode series. But I’m sure that the Otogi no Kuni series will haunt me all the way ’til next year… especially if Miu, Mia and Mio will be included in the lineup, eepp! And Aika too… we’ll see.
