Happy Birthday Tamaki!

That’s right! Today, December 3rd, is my little Tamaki’s first birthday!

You may have noticed from my lack of Valentines, Halloween, or Christmas posts, that I am not very good at preparing for this sort of thing(it always sneaks up on me >_>), so Tamaki has not had her party yet, but I’ll be sure to have a photo story up by the weekend. That way she can show off her presents!

But since I wanted to post something on her actual birthday, I’ve put assembled a little summary of Tamaki’s first year!

Tamaki was my first doll. I was interested in a few Pureneemos before, but never dreamed of buying one because $100 for a doll is crazy, right? Then while browsing MFC one fateful night, I stumbled across the prototype pictures and it was love at first sight. I knew I had to have her, and several agonizing months later, she was mine.

I was first very apprehensive about owning her since right out of the box, Pureneemos don’t look nearly as neat as in the promotional pictures. I also wasn’t sure how to pose her. Still, I proceeded with her review which is where Tamaki had her very first photoshoot

Golden Lights
The photos were taken in a Christmas tree!

Photo stories were a must, but without other dolls to interact with, and not really wanting to put myself in the stories as her master, I sought out a replacement master for my little servant.

At this point, I was not entirely in love with Tamaki or sure what to do with her, so she mostly appeared in loot posts.

I also hadn’t thought of a personal name yet and had just been calling her Caster.
Tamaki's name
But in the second photo story, A Name for Caster, she was officially dubbed Tamaki.

Giving my dolls their own names is important to me since they feel more personal that way. I normally wouldn’t name a preexisting character, but since Caster is really just her servant class, I felt ok doing so.
I finally settled on the name Tamaki since it resembles the name of her true identity in Fate/Extra, Tamamo no mae, and sounds much cuter.

A little while after, I got my SLR and was able to take better pictures of her!

At this point, Kagura appeared which changed everything.

But with an ice cream party or two, the girls finally warmed up to each other.

And the good times commenced.

Second only to her fun times with Kagura is Tamaki’s wardrobe which has helped me a lot in my sewing and also grown to a notable size!

  1. Happy Birthday, Tamaki!!

    I actually think the wardrobe you make for her suits her better than her default!
    What a great year!

    … it makes me wonder how long I’ve had my first Neemo… I suppose I can look it up.
    (My first was Majokko Aika) LOL!
