Flickr groups

March 28th, 2015 | Posted by mizya in Azone | Dollfie Dream

Since I’ve now ventured into the world of Azones and Dollfie Dreams, I’m on the lookout for a place where I could connect with other hobbyists. Well, there are some international communities, but I’d also like to get to know Finnish hobbyists as well. :3 Ideally we’d have a forum to talk about all kinds of Asian dolls, but I wouldn’t really know where to start in creating one (and I’d be a terrible admin anyway because occasionally I’m too busy to be online much ahah), so I started with something simple: flickr groups. :3

Because I tend to hang out with flickr the most and to me it seems like there are the most doll hobbyists, compared to sites like deviantArt and such… I don’t really blog about dolls in tumblr nor do I have facebook/instagram accounts so I don’t know how many people are in those places, but… anyway!

Here are the groups:

https://www.flickr.com/groups/azone_finland/

https://www.flickr.com/groups/dd_finland/

Feel free to join and post photos & start discussions! :3 You can also post photos even if you’re not a Finn, if you’ve visited our lovely country and taken photos of your dolls here, haha. xD If you love nature and the four seasons, then you should definitely visit Finland! ^__~ ♥ … and of course, the photos don’t have to be just scenery ones, I only submitted a couple of those as examples (and to show off the Finnish nature). Indoor and outdoor photos are both welcome!

  • I’m glad I found your blog and these flickr groups. I’ve been missing a forum in finnish for Dollfie Dream too, but haven’t found one :(

      It’s lovely to have you as a member! ^^ Yeah, I suppose there aren’t that many Finnish doll forums to begin with… I only know of Hartsilapset for resin dolls and then Pullip Suomi for Pullips, although they also have a section for other dolls where they have threads for different brands, such as Azone. But I don’t think I’ve seen a thread for Dollfie Dreams. :( Ten years ago DDs were welcome in Hartsilapset, as well… too bad that they changed the rules so that they’re no longer allowed. >.<;;; I haven't been able to find all that many Finns who would own/be interested in DDs in many years. :< Thankfully sometimes I find people through their blogs, though! I stumbled upon your blog when I was looking at the participants for Taidekuja in Desucon Frostbite 2015. Sadly I was only able to be there on Saturday, otherwise I would've visited your table for sure! xD Or well, at least I hope I would have... I tend to be shy, so it took a while to call out to you, even though I've been reading your blog since. :'3

      • :D Kiva oli liittyä Flickrin ryhmään. Toivottavasti sinne eksyy muitakin. Harmi ettei forumia suomeksi tosiaan ole. Jos tietäisin miten sellainen tehdään niin voisin tehdä sellaisen vaikka oman domainini alle. Muita harrastajia en tuntenut ennen kuin minut löysi muutama helsinkiläinen nukkeliharrastaja twitteristä ja sitä kautta sain kuulla #nukkeli ircnet-kanavasta ja nukkeli blogista, jonka pitäjät järjestävät desuconissa miittejä. Niitä miittejä on tosin sen verran harvoin, että yleensä käyn hartsilasten paikallisessa miiteissä, kun saan tuoda sinne Dollfie Dream nukkeni.
