Dolpa LA 2015

Last weekend (September 5th), I attended Volks USA’s official Doll Party in LA 2015 event. This was my first time attending a Dolpa event, as well as my first time meeting a large number of DD owners. I had previously attended the BJD-focused Uncanny Dreams 2013 and had a mini-meet at Sakura-con 2014, but that was it. And so, with high expectations and excitement to making new friends, I planned out hotel and scheduling with thebobness, packed up Lily and Arcueid, and hopped on the plane to Los Angeles.

New unofficial MFC Facebook page

A long while back, MyFigureCollection.net used to have working RSS feeds, but they randomly disappeared one day. I poked around and found that there’s official MFC Facebook and Twitter pages, but neither of them seem to follow any logical order in terms of posting content (old content and new content gets mixed in, rather than just the latest like you’d expect). It seems kumasan has plans for future updates, but in the meanwhile, I decided to experiment and make my own. After messing around with Facebook apps and RSS feed generation, I managed to set up a new Facebook page …
