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 …

PAX Prime 2013

The Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) is a series of gaming conventions held in three different locations every year and one of the biggest in North America (right after E3). The biggest of the three, PAX Prime, is held in Seattle, with PAX Prime 2013 held last long weekend (Friday Aug 31 to Monday Sept 2nd). I have previously attended plenty of anime cons, but this would be my first PAX and video game convention. Got a 4-day pass from a friend but was only able to attend 3 of the days since I had work on Friday (Monday was Labour …

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) …

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 …

Uncanny Dreams 2013

Just came back from Uncanny Dreams in Seattle, my very first doll convention since I became a Dollfie Dream owner. Was a bit smaller than I expected (having only attended anime cons before), but was still pretty interesting. There were only three Dollfie Dream owners there, and I’m pretty sure I was the only guy doll owner there too… orz 4,210 total views, 2 views today
