Sun-kissed: the ManikaManila Summer Meet Photos!  
ManikaManila has always wanted to have a summer meet, complete with a pool and all. Now that we're bigger than we've ever been, we felt it was finally time to hold it. After a number of venue problems and lots of stress (mostly on Kuri's part), Sun-kissed, the ManikaManila Summer Meet was able to push through!

And I'm soooooooo glad it did.

1. Krishna (hibiemi) with Ichigo, Ulalume, Viola (Trisha's) & Lucy (Monique's)

5. Mark (markknife1)
6. Janine (yaminotenshi11) with Jared & Addie
7-8. Jhulian (ylden) and Wintzel with Frei & Blake
9. Nix (kuro_akira) with Diva, Starr, Quibble, Littlerose & Drift

11. Lala (ribbonfiend) with Ninon
12. Marik (noxxtis) with Kitt, Sky, Crow & Ziggy
13. Kyra (devolvedarling) with Zita, Lakan, Duckie & Kouta
14. Karen (nerakk) with Miya Miya, Yuna, Morgana, Lee, Marshal, Marceline, Hana, Loli & Yu
15. Jai (jaiant_panda) with Kaden & Patch

17. Ricci (dheity_rigel) with Amihan & Isha

19. Marie (marieangelcakes) with Hyuna, Althia & Ashe
20. Aimee (chamcham44) with Pullips Makoto, Emile, Brie, Kato & Skye

Please let me know if I need to change/add anything!

Group photo! The dolls didn't all fit on one side so we had to utilize all sides of the table.

Karen and Kyra's lovelies~

idk who that poofy-haired creature on the leftmost belongs to. LOL
With Tic's kids and...ohohoho Chlo and Ninon. c:

This was what was on the other side. He eventually gave in when there was no more space left to put the newcomers. Thank you, Isha. XD

Bloody friends, Tori and Karen's hardcore kid Lee. 8D

Frei and his new housemate, Blake :>

...Dicelittle. akja;glkajsg;laksjgasl;gkjasg;l *dies of cute*

Mr. Quira with the Lion Eyes as I like to call em. Newly acquired from Kanis' Makoeyes GO. I am reallyreallyreally happy with them. Starr looks so intense. ;u;

Some people mistake Drift for Starr in thumbnails. Might be cause Drift is using Starr's old wig. XD

Lovebirdsssss. C8 Jared and Addie.

These two also got new eyes that day. 8) Littlerose got his Makoeyes and Dokilittle got his Alicecollections eyes. 8D They are now more like their big selves who are clearly having tooooo much fun in China

Deceiving photo. XD Littlerose is actually 2cm taller than Dokilittle. idk why Doki looks so much more semetaller than Rose here. XDDD

Ceth and Hyuna finally reunite after three long months. CETH I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU

New girl, Lucy ♥
Her owner wasn't present that day, though. Hope to see you at a meet soon~! ;u;

And then I jumped into the pool and forgot about taking more pictures while the sun was still out. I am a fool.

When the sun went down, I did however get these shots that look like an afterparty at the beach, or something.

♥ :>

KYAAAAA I cannot tell who is cuter. Maybe Duckie and Kouta combined > Lakan

Kitt and Crow c:

Kass' lovely girls who are more suited to pretty sunlit photos but I failed them. I am so sorry ;o;

obligatory Diva and Starr. ahurrhurr.

and then the night ended with karaoke and McDonald's delivery!

I shall end with a shot of girl friends Diva and Ninon at Lala's house, where I waited for my dad to pick me up. Thanks again, bb. ♥

I love you guys. X) I had so much fun. Pool parties must become a summer tradition.
MM ftw! ♥

I just adore your photos of the meet-ups ♥
(I'm also terrible jealous of those awesome meets /totally lives in the wrong country)
Nixkuro_akira on June 4th, 2012 01:44 am (UTC)
Aww thank you. I try to share as much as possible so everyone can somehow experience what meets are like over here. :) If you ever do travel to the Philippines, message me. Let's have a meet. :D

What are meets like over there, anyway?
roterwolkenvoglroterwolkenvogl on June 4th, 2012 04:16 am (UTC)
If I ever end up traveling to the Philippines, I'll surely drop you a note! :D

German meets are nice, once you eliminated all the crazy (which here in Bavaria means that our group has like 4 people).
Otherwise we're mostly outside in a public garden since all of use otherwise have a hard time just going out with our dolls alone to get photos in a public space xD
I post meet-up pics in my LJ though they are seldom since we never manage to meet up as often as we wish (with all of us having stressful jobs on not always time on the weekends).

It's also virtually impossible to organize such large meets as you have, a) because of the crazy and b) most of the other BJD collectors live in a different state of Germany (like 6-8 hours away with the train)

Nixkuro_akira on June 4th, 2012 02:08 am (UTC)
*pats* Next time, bb. c: ♥
marie angelcakesmarieangelcakes on May 29th, 2012 10:30 am (UTC)
I myself can't believe it too! Heehee! XD
I've been missing a lot so I made sure I'll attend this meet (no matter how very far it was),
and who knows when will I be around again so it was really grabbing-the-opportunity phenomenon for me.

Thank you for the very very warm (and somewhat overwhelming) welcome, I'm never used to that kind of attention so mega-social awkward galore for me haha! But that's what I get, don't I?

Anyway thanks for these lovely photos as usual and thanks to everyone who made this possible, I was one of those people who are rooting for this to push through. So yay!

I hope we can do this once again! ◕‿‿◕
Nixkuro_akira on June 4th, 2012 02:50 am (UTC)
So happy you were finally able to attend!! :3
♥ Thanks for helping us make it possible! :)

Wahahaha~!!1 Ang saya ninyong lahat! I wish I was there, but summer ended for me very early, and I have school on Saturday's. My current sched sucks, but I gotta roll with it. No meets for me in a very long while. TT^TT

ZitaDiva~! The bikini's! The boardshorts! The lovely dorries and resin abs! This is too much for me to take. And Diva's hand! Good God, Iplehouse especially crafted it for photo-taking I'm sure! Kyra's sewing skills never fail to amaze me! Her work on Diva's bikini brings out the color of her eyes so well!
Nixkuro_akira on June 4th, 2012 02:52 am (UTC)
Ay, bakit ka may Saturdays? :(
And yes, short talaga ang summer ng Benilde. XD; Minsan nga one week lang eh. XD
Hope you can try to go to meets still though. :( Good luck with school!
