Microkini Aura and Desk Update

With the summer heat kicking in and room temperature climbing up to 30-35°C day and night, daughters were in need of an even more revealing outfit and during my occasional visit to Akihabara, I came across this black microkini outfit at Volks. Much smaller than the white microkini outfit Aura had on last year and it just barely cover her important parts – which is splendid :3 While I didn’t have a whole variety of silver/black/red beads and accessories, I gathered bits and pieces I had lying around the house (volks black headphone, 3 bracelets, thigh bands, a ring (many many thanks to Otakusan), rapier belt and etc) to give her a summer look. No stains so far but probably best to remove them whenever I can as the summer heat softens the vinyl and makes it more prone to stains. My workspace also had a few minor upgrades (display cases, dry boxes, figures and etc) in the past couple of months so will go over the changes in the latter half of the post.

Xera in Military Clothing 軍服セラ

With Sora and Aura in their completed military clothing, I had this strong urge to give Xera the same treatment to make things more uniform. That was when I stumbled across this military clothing by Doll Heart for 40 cm sized (MSD/MDD) dolls while doing a routine checkup on one of the doll shops in Akihabara. The price was somewhere around 12000 yen and included a blazer, inner-vest, shirt, belt, necktie, pants, belt, gloves and an arm band. Quite a bit of assortment of accessories but like with most sets of clothing, not all were usable – pants were too long and gloves just wouldn’t fit. The design is reminiscent of the Nazi Germany military uniform but thankfully this one uses a regular iron cross instead of the infamous swastika. It also features a lot more detail than the German military clothing by SEN I bought a year ago for Aura. Guessing this was originally meant to fit a male doll but didn’t matter much for Xera since she was so flat-chested… Anyways, I have a couple of review photos for you to gander and also some photos of other military goods I bought at previous doll events in the latter half of the post.

Workspace 机周り 2012/11/5

Some diary-ish post on my otaku room and a couple of other things – It’s been almost 2 months since I started working from home and one thing I came to notice was how quiet the house was during the day and how long or maybe short that day was – you wake up in your room, work in your room, eat in your room, sleep in your room and the cycle goes on. Being the indoor type, I never minded environments like this and rather welcomed it. No need to ride the super-congested trains in the morning too which was great. However as the days passed, it’s come to my attention that it’s not always easy keeping your concentration up and working efficiently when you’re in a room with no windows and stuck with the same scenery. It’s not much but to alleviate some of the ongoing situation, I’ve spruced up my workspace over the few weeks by adding more lively figures, plants and some gadgets. Thought I lost my passion for figures after the dolls (Sora, Aura and Xera) came but it’s still there alright :3 Continue reading ‘Workspace 机周り 2012/11/5′

Wonder Festival 2012 Summer and DD Festival

As mentioned in the last post, me and a few other guys went to the Wonder Festival Summer 2012 held in Makuhari Messe yesterday. Wasn’t with my usual doll group but I did meet a few other doll owners I knew from twitter and such. Some were carrying dolls so they could attend the DD festival (Miss Contest & Group photoshoot) held in Akihabara Volks later in the day which I also dropped by near its end. Must’ve taken over 200-300 photos in all since this was a very special occasion but had to flick some away due to blurriness or restrictions. Still, there’s loads of images up ahead so I’ll keep my usual blabbering very brief (‘ω`)

Xera’s Day Off セラの休日

Kinda felt like I’ve been neglecting Xera as of late – like not bringing her to the studio photoshoot, not making a post about her for over a month…etc – so figured it’s time I put the spotlight on her for a change and take her out. Looking at her wardrobes though, everything seemed a bit too stuffy and the weather we’re having here in Japan would likely give her a heat stoke if she went out ^^; Given that gothic lolita fashion or dress with good breathability are hard to come by, casual fashion seemed like a good option.  Haven’t been very partial to casual clothing due to my low coordination skills and the lack of decent clothing in the market but with some luck, I was able to come up with a new image for Xera after spending several tens of minutes rummaging through clothes at the Akihabara Azone store.

Newly bought items were the  black punk-style skirt which was 2100 yen-ish and the white blouse (?) 1500 yen-ish. The hair bow, choker, thigh socks, and shoes are something from her previous dress and the red glasses and bag you’ve seen Sora use them a while ago. Took her to Volks Yokohama for a short photo session but before we move on, here’s a few photos of Xera’s new look (‘ω`)

(暫くセラに構ってあげられなかったので本ブログでは滅多に載せないカジュアル服を見繕ってみました~。服の殆どはアゾンで調達。それ以外の小物は過去服の流用です。折角だったのでついでにセラと一緒に横浜某でデートしてきました(‘ω`)デュフフ)

Itasha @ Nico Nico Chokaigi

For those that are not familiar with this event, “Niconico Chokaigi” is basically a huge otaku convention held in Makuhari Messe from April 28th-29th which mainly features popular contents inside Nico Nico Douga (nico nico). Such were Vocaloids, Idol M@ster, Toho, Singers, Dancers, Illustrators, Billy Herrington (Aniki) and what have you. A lot of other companies and events like Good Smile Company, Aniplex and Itasha G Festival were also invited as an exhibitor so it was a pretty chaotic event. Not as many visitors as Comiket but there were estimated to be over 92 thousand visitors in the 2 days. Didn’t have a whole lot of chance to browse around during the event since the information booth where I was stationed at was kept pretty busy so these pics were taken during the preparation hours. Nothing interesting to see here back then except these Itashas but hope you’ll enjoy them ;3

Puella Magi☆Homura Magica

Well, this post has been way overdue since I announced that I will be done writing by the end of last week. For the constant readers out there I apologize for the delay. Just wanted to make sure I had everything in place for the photoshoot since as some may know, I am a huge fan of Madoka Magica, especially Homura. Love her character design, personality, voice actress and her battle scenes (`・ω・´). Hommando!!! XD

The Akemi Homura cosplay clothing you’ll see in the following pictures was bought from one of the dealers in the Wonder Festival Summer 2011 that took place two Sundays ago. There were 2 dealers selling Puella Magi (Madoka, Homura, Mami…etc) cosplay clothing for DDs, one them was around 15000 yen and the other 25000 yen. At first glance the first dealer’s price was attractive and the clothing they sold seemed better in terms of color replication but after some consideration, I went with the second dealer’s expensive one. Experience in shopping for doll clothing at YJA and elsewhere has taught me that in most cases, the more you pay the better you get^^;

Anyways, without further ado, I give you Puella Magi☆Homura Magica~

New Volks Akihabara and Wonfes 2011 (Sum)

As mentioned in my last post, I went to Wonder Festival 2011 Summer last weekend with a couple of friends from my old blog community for the first time ever. We met up at New Volks Akihabara show room on Saturday to take some doll pics in the photo booth and after that we headed to a karaoke station nearby Makuhari, Chiba.  Since most of the other guys were used to going to this event (one of them was a figure modeler/dealer) I just sort of tagged along and let them lead the way. Little did I know at that time that the lines to get into the place would be so chaotic^^; We stayed in the karaoke box overnight from 8:00 PM to 4:00 AM and started heading to the stadium shortly after. All were able to get a few hours sleep before heading out but as for me sleep didn’t come at all….

Didn’t have the energy to taking every single figures or dolls in the stadium so I only took ones that caught my attention. You can also head over to my friend’s review post here, here and here.

Anyways, to start off here are a couple of pics I took at the photobooth in New Volks Akihabara.

Madoka Magica Cafe & DD Miku

Good Smile Cafe holds an anime campaign every once in a while and arrange  their interior, goods and meal to the theme of the anime in topic. Previous campaigns in Good Smile cafe featured Black★Rock Shooter, Panty, Stocking and Garterbelt and its latest installation is the much controversial Puella Magi Madoka☆Magica. Although there was no rush since the campaign will continue for over 2 months, over hundred people lines up daily to get a glimpse of what was inside and things like this tells you just how much attraction this anime is getting. Most animes are forgotten shortly after it ends^^;

On thursday me, @Syaorankun, @ddotark and @fransgaard met up at Matsudo Station to see what all this was about and took a couple of pictures to share with you guys/gals here.  Was surprised tho to find out that I was the only one in the group who watched all of the episodes.

2~3 hours of waiting in line didn’t bother me much since I was a huge fan of the series but I can imagine the experience was somewhat different for those who weren’t….(・ω・;)

Happy Birthday Sora!!!

Before we begin I’d like to point out that the Sora I’ll be referring to will be the original Sora from the visual novel by Sphere. Not my DD Sora. Additionally, the date on this article will say it’s the 4th of February, but it’s actually now the 5th in JST so I decided to put it up here. ……and no, the author is not high on drugs^^;

Anyways, without further ado, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SORA!!!!! ヽ(・ω・〃)。・:*:・゚
