Top 10 Most Expensive DD Outfits on YJA Nov 2010

If you’re into Dollfies, you’ll find that doll clothing is rather hard to come by. Dollfie collecting is a very niche hobby, so large clothing lines like Tenshi no Sumika make only limited quantities that are sold at high prices to cover costs. Fortunately for the designers, us crazy hobbyists are willing to dish out high amounts to satisfy our Dollfie’s needs.

The lack of commercialized Dollfie clothing lines has encouraged growth in the custom fashion stream. Many of these talented designers and seamstresses have opened up shops to sell their outfits. Those who own a selling account on Yahoo! Japan Auction will sell there as well, since it serves as a nice central hub for buyers and sellers.

Once in a while, unique outfits will appear on Y!JA, many of which are Haute, one-off designs that may be highly sought after. Due to the nature of auctions, their prices can be driven to an insanely high amount not many can afford.

Here, we have the top 10 most expensive Dollfie Dream outfit auctions listed on YJA that ended during November 2010!

Exchange rate (USD to YEN): 82.705 (Dec 6 2010)

Ageha Design often closes in on Le chat de neige when it comes to elegant fantasy costumes. It only lacks the extra pieces of undergarments really x3 Would have definitely gone higher if they included the katana ~

Comments:

I’m personally not a fan of enamel finish (prefer umbrellas over raincoats), but goth loli sells ! One of the more unique outfits done by kita_naochan by taking the conservative lolita style and raising the hemline to provocative levels.

8th (tie)

Apparently we have four outfits that are tied in 8th place! They are listed in the order of date sold.

Winning Bid: 43,500 yen ($526 US)

Velvet Xmas Santa Dress – Spica (L-bust, DDdy)

Designer/Studio: kita_naochan

Unique Bidders/Bids: 12/54

Starting Price: 6,000 yen ($73 US)

End Date: Nov 26, 2010

Comments:

At first glance, this piece might not be very eye-catching due to the photo quality, but many look past that and see the fluffyness that is in kita_naochan’s designs.

Another perk is that their outfits are so very “cast-offable”, as every single one of their photoshoots suggest. (May have to scroll down a little in each of those links until you see the obvious kita_naochan quality photos.)

kita_naochan’s designs are solid. However, it’s odd how this particular outfit managed to sell for so high, since they always have plenty of these up on auction.

ramcot_snow. To be honest, I can’t point out anything wrong with this outfit no matter how hard I try. It’s original, it’s creative, solid, and consistant; no more, no less. If I had won the lottery, I would have easily put down more than $500 for this set.

The blue version ~ I like this one more; contrasts better with the creamy chiffon skirt and the bow’s silver lining.

Unique Bidders/Bids: 6/13

Starting Price: 5,000 yen ($60 US)

End Date: Nov 28, 2010

Comments:

I can’t quite understand why a set of lingerie can hit $500 US. Not exactly that special aside from the cute tophat. I would much prefer to pay the same price for that Ageha set earlier that even included the bustier and garterbelts. Now, if they included the dollfie here however, I would pay quadruple xD

Comments:

Rarely does Le chat de neige do maid outfits or anything contemporary for that matter, but when they do, it’s perfectly executed like this one.

Dollfie Dream Dress Set (M/L-bust)

Designer/Studio: doabf00

Unique Bidders/Bids: 2/8

Starting Price: 5,000 yen ($60 US)

End Date: Nov 14, 2010

Comments:

doabf00 only releases about one to two outfits a month, sometimes none; but usually they all end up over the 40k yen mark ~ A stylish casual outfit worthy of it’s final price. The sweater is cute, the inner top is cute, the dollfie model is cute xD The outfit is very similar to their other one that sold for slightly lower above.

Only 2 unique bidders, most likely because after the initial 5,000 yen, one of the bidders bumped the auction to 25,000, scaring off any other potential buyers.

DD Dynamite Body Sleep Set

Designer/Studio: gekkoudoll

Unique Bidders/Bids: 4/24

Starting Price: 5,000 yen ($60 US)

End Date: Nov 10, 2010

Comments:

Don’t think anyone, including the seller, would have expected Dollfie Dream nightwear to pass the 50,000 yen mark. But unlike the more recent lingerie set, the one above that sold for 40ish thousand, this outfit seems more exquisitely made. It’s difficult to make out the material used from the small photos, but it sure looks soft xD and the intricate pattern designs are laid out nicely.

Love the model so much ~ it has such a charming and sophisticated look.

Another kimono… yes, $800 US x _ x

The “red” in brackets in the outfit name should be referring to the obi section of the kimono for those who are wondering.

Winning Bid: 72,000 yen ($871 US)

Peach Scarlet-dyed Kimono (DDdy, L-bust)

Designer/Studio: Gofuku Ohnoya

Unique Bidders/Bids: 6/44

Starting Price: 18,000 yen ($218 US)

End Date: Nov 20, 2010

Comments:

Clearly, Gofuku Ohnoya is a master of handcrafted kimonos. It’s rare to see kimonos soar over the 40,000 yen mark, or below 10,000 yen (usually they hover in the 20,000 yen area), as there are several other prominent kimono makers on YJA to keep these numbers stable with their sewing skills and material quality.

So how could this particular kimono (and the two above) sell for over $800 US? A high selling outfit needs not only superior quality, but also a pretty model, lovely photos, photoshopping skills, and a rich fanbase. Gofuku Ohnoya has all of it covered.

Crime and Punishment (DDdy dress, blue)

Designer/Studio: Le chat de neige

Unique Bidders/Bids: 13/39

Starting Price: 8,000 yen ($97 US)

End Date: Nov 15, 2010

Comments:

There was no doubt that Le chat de neige would take the number one spot. They seem to take the number one spot every month ^ ^; Nonetheless, with the sheer amount of effort and detail put into each part of this multi-layered outfit (that surely looks like it could have came out of Dragon Raja or Lineage) both Illya and I agree that it deserves to be first ~
