When I started dressing Eiji for this shoot, he was going to be in leather pants and a pinstripe shirt.

You can't really understand unless you're also crazy, but dolls have a mind of their own. When Eiji looks at you like he did today (because what else is he going to do when I make his eyes look forward) you just know he has plans. His plans today included a kimono and a pvc corset.

I was listening to Kagrra, and so that might have done something to influence me. So this whole shoot is Kagrra, inspiredddd.

Starting my Kagrra, tour for today is one of my favourite songs of all time.

Sakebi - Kagrra,

They look exceptionally normal in that PV. Aw, Nao <3

OKAY. I actually quite like this shot, all windswept and absent. I love Eiji ;~; HE'S MY FAVOURITE.

In all honesty, he looks so feminine that he can easily get away with cross-dressing anyway.

Sometimes I get the urge to save up for a ball-jointed doll of my own, and then I dismiss it as being silly, or unaffordable. And then I see a shoot like this, with a quiet elegance, the doll's sweet beauty, and the imagination of their owners, and that desire comes back. Those colors look stunning on Eiji, and I especially love that pendant. Something so elaborate on something so small always blows my minds. Nice work, hiritai. Thank you for sharing this piece. :-)

Eiji is the most perfect BJD I have ever seen. He seems so far away from this world, so pure and perfect. He really is special.

I thought I was overly weird; I do the same thing. I saw a doll at a Con 6 years ago, I've always wanted one, finally get one, and I'm doing that. Writing silly posts in Ivan's voice, and it's weird, but even the original plan I had for him has gone awry. I'd planned a certain style, but he keeps ending up doing something completely different. Glad I'm not the only one...
Also, your entire gallery is amazing!

keiiachi Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2009
you can get kimonos for BJDs now? That is awesome!
Rimfrost-December Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2009
Haha.. I know the feeling D: Sometimes it's really fun, and sometimes it's "Oh pooo! But I want to take photos of you in this n that.." And instead the doll in question goes "Non, non.." And if you try to force it into what you want.. Well.. The doll will end up facepalming on the ground, or falling backwards or just pose wrong so that the pics look like poo.. Until you go along with the idea in question. Then it's all.. pew.
Anyway. Great picture, great ideas. And I love Eiji too~<3 >w< -fangirl squeal-

I love these dolls, and the photos you've done of them. They're fantastic. I looked at them today and they're just -so- expensive. I envy you.
This one though. He's especially fantastic. Beautiful. <3

Saploroskey Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2009
I agree with you XD He wasn't really suited for pants and shirt at this photo XD I like the way you got his eyes to glow like that. Really beautiful work. A picture you can stare at for hours and never get tierd of it!

This is interesting. I like the kimono, and the way that his eyes make him look as if he's dreaming about something.

Somethings... differant about Eiji in this.... are these eyes a lighter shade of blue?
