Akicon 2013

A few weeks ago (Oct 25-27th), I attended Akicon 2013 as my first big anime convention since moving to Washington last year. In the northwest, there are two large anime conventions, Sakura-con and Akicon. I somehow managed to miss both last year, but made sure to attend this year (and plan on attending Sakura-con 2014). 5,770 total views, 2 views today

Takuechi Takashi’s Pre-TYPE-MOON Doujinshi

Takeuchi Takashi (武内崇) is a Japanese artist best known as the illustrator and co-founder of TYPE-MOON. In otherwords, he’s the artist behind all the characters from Tsukihime, Fate/stay night, and Kara no Kyoukai (yes, he drew your waifu). But before TYPE-MOON became a commercial company in 2004 with the release of Fate/stay night, TYPE-MOON was a doujin circle. And before TYPE-MOON became a doujin circle in 2000 with the release of Tsukihime, Takeuchi and Nasu were publishing other doujinshis under various circle names, including Bamboo Broom (竹箒) and CoCiCaCe CLUB (腰掛倶楽部). The following are some of the pre-2000 doujinshis drawn …

Enjoy the photos! ^_^ 5,589 total views, 1 views today

For the full Saber Lily DD unboxing and review, see my previous post Saber Lily, the Princess of Knights In between unboxing and putting together Saber Lily (see link above), I took some time to take nice, clean pictures of her in her various outfit.

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 …

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).

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 …
