Saber Lily Dollfie Dream (Volks)

Photo warning: This is a VERY photo heavy review. If you just want to see Saber Lily in her completed outfits, see the photoshoot post While I’m not all that much of a Saber fan (as opposed to most TYPE-MOON collectors), there is one version of Saber that I do really like (purely due to her character design). and that would be Saber Lily. Back when I was thinking about creating a custom Dollfie Dream, I was looking through all the existing Volks DDs and the Saber Lily DD caught my attention. Originally the high price, rarity, and poor official …

TYPE-MOON Collection Milestone 2013

So I was updating my MFC collections lists today (since the Spring Tsukihime Bottle Caps just arrived in mail, bought from Yahoo Auctions Japan) and I realized that my TYPE-MOON Collection list had hit 300 items (with MFC entries, and almost 500 if you include those without)! It’s been less than two years since I got my first TYPE-MOON figure (and it was a bootleg too!) and I’ve been able to reduce my TYPE-MOON wishlist down to just 11 items (with MFC entries, and a small handful more items without). Rant about me and TYPE-MOON: Spoiler: For those who may …

The World of Hatsune Miku

This is an essay I wrote while in university, titled “The World of Hatsune Miku – A brief overview of the VOCALOID phenomena”. The complete PDF version of this can be found here. Published under CC BY-NC-SA. Just under 6 years ago, while wandering around the somewhat unknown video-sharing website called YouTube, I came across an interesting 3D animated music video: The first YouTube reprint of the 3DPV for Miku Miku ni Shite Ageru? / “【初音ミク】3DみくみくPV” It caught my interest because not only was the 3DCG pretty impressive (this was still during the time when Flash animations were still popular) …

Tsukihime ~Half Moon Edition~ Omakes (TYPE-MOON)

NSFW/spoiler warning: This is a review of an 18+ eroge. It contains screenshots of NSFW H scenes (put into spoilers). It also contains game/content spoilers. Included in the Tsukihime ~Half Moon Edition~ CD were a bunch of extra omake material that was later also included in Tsukihime PLUS+DISC (except Clowick Canaan-vail). Each of these are reviewed here separately. CD content/file structure UPDATE 2019/07/10: Upon further inspection of file timestamps and comparing it to release dates, I realized some mistakes (on my part) in this article. Specifically, the following corrections have been made: – “Tsukihime (Preview Edition)” has been corrected to …

Sanding down Dollfie Dream busts *NSFW*

NSFW warning: This post contains photos of nude Dollfie Dream parts. A while back when I was photographing V0 of my custom Arcueid Brunestud Dollfie Dream, I quickly noted something bothering me when I was reviewing the photos. Something that stood out. Literally. That something was the pointy nipples of the DD L bust. Like in this photo: For a modest character with a modest outfit like Arcueid, the overly-pointy and obvious nipples looked completely out of place. I remember reading a tutorial written a while back by Archangeli about sanding down the nipples, so I decided to try it …

Comparison between L Bust and L Shapely Bust *NSFW*

NSFW warning: This post contains photos of nude Dollfie Dream parts. For the past few months I’ve been working on perfecting my custom Arcueid Brunestud Dollfie Dream. I started off with a standard L bust from DDIII Aoi Ver. 2 but after looking at some photos and chatting with jadepixel, I decided to go ahead and order an L shapely bust. The result was quite nice. Even though Arcueid doesn’t show cleavage, the firmer-looking, more “pushed-together” shape of the L Shapely bust better fits her body shape. Since Arc’s DDH-07 head is currently still being worked on by Shailara and …
