An update from Atlanti-Con

Good morning folks! I’m here at Atlanti-con (actually, I’m hosting the radio for it, as we were able to get a radio station here to set up stuff [www.boir.ca]) and I’m having a blast! I cosplayed Crazy Clown Kaito yesterday, and today I’m cosplaying Accelerator from To Aru Maujutsu no Index. Here are some photos!

If you live in Corner Brook. come down now! Other wise, listen to the podcast and have a time!

I’m also doing a panel on Figurines, Maintenance, and More today!

 

More photos to come!

Up for Preorder: Nendoroid Mirari Suenaga

Being a member of dannychoo.com and figure.fm, I love it when Danny releases Culture Japan items. Sadly, I haven’t been able to preorder any yet, but this may be the one! Introducing… Nendoroid Mirai Suenaga!

Here’s some info about Mirai and the Nendoroid version

Mirai Suenaga, the mascot character from the Culture Japan TV show and main character of the original story ‘Mirai Millennium‘ is joining the Nendoroid series! Her standard expression is based on Nao Shirahane’s illustration of Mirai, but she also comes two different smiling expressions based on illustrations from the Moekana cards illustrated by Ikkyuu.

A variety of extras are also included to display together with Mirai, including a Japanese flag, Nendoroid-sized Moekana card, Mirai-chan’s sidekick Retrokyu and even a miniature itasha featuring Tasuku Iizuki’s illustration of Mirai on the bonnet.

A miniature pack of the original 50 Moekana cards plus six brand new cards are also included, so you can continue to improve your hiragana as well!

  So let’s see what she looks like!

I really love the eyes on Nendo Mirai. This time, instead of GSC designing the eyes, Danny and his team were the ones who came up with them. They also had a Version 1, but they apparently made her look yandere. She also comes with Retrokyu and some other parts in which you’ll see in a bit.

This is what she looks like from the back. As you can see, there it a lot of detail put into her hair with the ahoge and the braid.

She also comes with a japanese flag, an eyes closed face, and arms to hold the flag. She looks very cheery!

Vroom-vroom!

  She also comes with this awesome itasha! I think this is a really cool feature, as you only see Nendoroids such as Hatsune Miku Racing Ver. get them. It’s nice to see another car that doesn’t belong to Miku!

  Even Retrokyu can fit in the car!

My favourite face from this Nendo! Notice she also comes with a Nendo-sized Moekana card. It’s the Tora Card! Not only that, but she comes with a Dolfie-sized set.

This is an example of what you’ll see. You’ll have to cut them out.

Like most of the other Nendos, you can exchange her faces with others!

  What a great Nendoroid! She can be preordered on the following sites:
AmiAmi
HobbySearch
JList
HobbyLinkJapan

I’m Ba-ack!

     Good day everyone! I know it’s been a long time, but I’m finally back from my trip!

To start off, I’m happy to say that I had a blast at camp, in Quebec, and in the States. I went to a Boston Red Sox game and it was fantastic (they played the Kansas City Royals and won 5-1). I’ve been home for 3 days now relaxing before university starts (tomorrow).

    Now, I did buy a lot of things while at camp, such as a new Nikon SB-700 Speedlight, a Gary Fong Collapsable Light Sphere.

A picture I took at camp before I bought the Light Sphere. Gotta love my flash ❤

  While in the US, I went to a lot of outlet stores and bought a lot of clothes, as well as a new pair of Ray Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses.

  Finally, as I arrived home 3 days ago, some of you must be wondering why I haven’t posted earlier. Well, the reason why is because I bought a new MacBook Pro with Retina Display! I’m currently downloading Aperture and Microsoft Office, so I still have a few things to get done on the computer until it’s finished the official setup (I also need to transfer some photos over, which will take forever. :C)

A photo of my MBPr right after I turned it on.

    A few things to come in the blog include:
– A look at the preorder of Nendoroid Mirai Suenaga; and
– Post from Atlanticon, the convention coming here at the end of September in which I’m apart of the executive commitee.

Until then, keep reading!
