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.

Sora Updates and NEX-5R + SEL24F18Z

Long time no see (‘A`) It’s that time of year again with the stuffy climate, smelly trains and swarming mosquitos. Of all the seasons in Japan, I despise summer the most but one thing there is to appreciate are the girls in bikinis and one thing I do each year to keep myself motivated is to dress up my daughters in these alluring outfits. The bikini Sora has on this year is the same black one manufactured by Azone, but to make things a little more interesting, I managed to muster a few accessories to add into the mix. House is loaded with beads, chains and what-not that my mum collected over the years as an arts & craft teacher and it just so happens that many are perfect size for DDs. Sora’s military outfit also went though a few minor changes so I’ll cover that along with the new camera gear I mentioned on twitter. For now here are the details of Sora’s update.

(どうご無沙汰しています。バタバタしていたら前回の更新からあっという間に2ヶ月が過ぎて7月に・・・。自分は夏というものが大の苦手なんで、少しでも涼しく居られるようこの時期には決まって娘達に水着を着せています。今年ソラに着せている水着は去年と全く同じのアゾン製50cm用黒ビキニなんですが、それだとつまらないんで髪飾りと同じ要領でネックレス等も何点か自作。記事の後半からは軍服の改造や新しいカメラについてもちょっと触れてます。記事の写真の順番と実際の撮影日はバラバラですが、一応一番目の写真が最新版です。)

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′

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

Yokohama Doll Meet and a few other things…

Met up with comrade Syaoran and Gixxer85 (Zam) from figure.fm last weekend at the Yokohama Volks store. Since it’s been a good while since I last did a group photoshoot I’d planned on taking lots of photos but because the Volks store was preparing for an autumn event (can’t quite recall the name)  and that one of us came an hour late we could only use one booth for a mere 20 minutes. The outdoor photoshoot we did in Zou no hana Park shortly after was also so-so since there were people everywhere and that the the monolith illumination turned off much faster than expected. Was a great meet overall but this being the case there’s really not much photos to show. To compensate, I’ll throw in a few pics that I’ve taken in the past week^^;

A bit off topic, but I can’t believe I’ve only been able to write only 2 articles AGAIN for last month. Really do miss the days back last year when I had enough time to write 2 or 3 articles each week. These days, I simply work, eat, sleep like a machine and hardly have time for anything recreational. Had to turn down an offer from Mr. Choo to work on something too….orz Where’s a time machine and a reading steiner when you  need one XP

Nadesico Sora

Whenever I buy clothes for my daughters I tend to keep in mind of their personalities and settings or at least come up with a good reason/excuse to buy them. A lesson learned from buying crappy clothing aimlessly when I just started this DD hobby. The hefty expense I spent on the last dress was justified because it had Aura’s theme color, red, and had a tint of victorian magical girl look to it. The dress I got this time, well…..since Sora’s (穹) name was in Japanese I figured giving her a Japanese look for a change. A Yamato Nadesico (大和撫子) look which refers to “an ideal Japanese women”. Fellow comrade Samejima also mentioned in the previous post that Sora’s new hairstyle looked Japanese and that gave me another reason for me to go ahead and bid on this dress.

The dress was made by a seamstress called Twilight Moon that made Aura’ s red dress and Sora’s green tartan checked clothing. I only have a few of her collections but the things she/he can make sure are something else. Details, details and more details (´・ω・`)
