萌の日、来るぞ!

It maybe an ordinary day for the normies, but it is a day worth celebrating for those who knows the very reason to get excited about…

A very happy Moe Day (萌の日) to the wonderful community that is the otaku-dom!!! ^o^

Screenshot_2019-10-10-10-10-14-170_lockscreen

Perplexed over what today is? For starters, the kanji 萌 consists of 4 character components that when you read it in the traditional sequence (Up, Down, Right, Left…) you’ll get 十月十日 which essentially means 10th of October in both Japanese and Chinese!

Although it’s still a working day for many of us, don’t let the stress and workload overshadow your joy over the (un)official moe moe kyun filled hibi!


タマちゃんのビーチフラワー姿

Close to a year back, I’ve placed a commission for Tama-chan’s new wigs via a stylist from Taobao. Unfortunately due to backlogs on their side, the work on the wigs doesn’t even start until about the 5th Moon of this year.

After a rather lengthy back-and-forth constructive exchanges with the stylist about the project for the past few months, I’ve finally received the completed commission at the end of last Moon…

Tama-chan_Version_5.0_01

As for newest outfit for Tama-chan, her summer bikini set (From Fate/Extella Link, also her Saint Graph in Fate/Grand Order as Lancer class) is also a commissioned work via a seamstress on Taobao as well, which too arrived at my doorsteps a couple of Moons back. 

It’s been roughly two years since a proper pseudo studio session for Tama-chan, finally took some time and lotsa pain (My body can no longer hold on for such long hours of dedicated photo-shooting… Blame my increasing life levels. ^^;) to finally take some yesterday, abandoning the idea to attend the Comic Fiesta Mini event for the weekend in favour of my lovely waifu. :P

Costume Fun at a Summer Paradise

Continuing my adventure at Penang Anime Matsuri 2018, I wandered around the event halls looking to feast my eyes upon the superior crafts and outfits adorned on the cosplayers themselves.

Thanks to the empty area just between the entrance and the exhibition halls, cosplayers and photogs alike can gather at their own leisure for on-site photo sessions and random visitor encounters asking for selfies…

Two Days at a Summer Paradise

Penang Anime Matsuri 2018 was held last weekend at the Spice Convention Centre, instead of the dimly lit mini stadium that is Spice Arena last year.

PAM18_Others_01

Due to how ACG events across my country being carbon-copies of one another for years, I’ve already stop attending all of them in favour of only PAM due to its more unique contents, contents that I’m more interested with. =w=

The other only ACG event I visit annually is AFA at Singapore…

Preparing for a Summer Paradise

Due to my recent busy schedule and not-so-uplifting dailies, I’ve neglected on the news on Penang Anime Matsuri 2018. 

However I’m still excited that the day has finally come, for me to attend this event which falls on tomorrow!

Tama-chan is quite ready for the festival too, testing out her newest outfit, the 衝撃の学生服 from Fate/Extella… So glad her outfit made it in time, as the delay on the seamstress side kind of putting a minor stress on my end… ^^; 

Tama-chan_Shocking_JK_Outfit_Test

It’s also unfortunate that Tama-chan doesn’t have the proper hairstyle for this outfit as seen in the game itself, I’ll put that on the future upgrade list for her…

Tama-chan and I will pay a visit to one of booth owned by an acquaintance of mine within the exhibition halls, where she will stay there for a duration of time while I go snooping around the venue.

Do pay her visit if you happen to be there! See you all in a night’s sleep!

Twin Dolls of a Grand Order

With the surging popularity of the mobile salt game Fate/Grand Order, especially with the recent release of the North American English version, it’s no doubt Volks would want to ride the hype and make bucks with this license.

In fact, they made similar collaboration with the Type-Moon license a before too, with the various versions of Sabers and Nero and other Fate series characters into their equally popular 1/3 Dollfie Dream series.

FGO_x_DD_PO_Project_Main

Announced a few day back, it’s no surprise Volks is on the move again with a new Pre-Order project “Fate/Grand Order x Dollfie Dream”, they had the same thing a few years back during Type-Moon’s 10th anniversary, involving DD Saber Fate/Extra ver. and DD Saber Alter 2nd Ver ≧w≦

タマちゃんの霊基再臨

Arrived at my door steps via FedEx is a tightly packaged parcel from Korea, a shipment that I have waited for roughly half a year by now. 

Within is a masterpiece from Black Swan, of which I have commissioned them to give Tama-chan a thorough make-over, thus the lack of her appearances during these past months…

Tama-chan_Version_4.0_01

As before mentioned, Black Swan commissions are not on the cheaper side. This job alone took me six months of separate installments before I finally cleared the cheques while they were working on the commission during the same period. 

However one can truly be confident of their work for being the best of the best. My past dealings and commissions with them, albeit in a smaller scale, impresses me over and over.

タマちゃんのバレンタインの日

Love is in the air

Everywhere I look around

Love is in the air

Every sight and every sound

And I don’t know if I’m being foolish

Don’t know if I’m being wise

But it’s something that I must believe in

And it’s there when I look in your eyes

Fiery Rooster Entering a New Lunatic Year

The Monkey stopped going apes at the end of this season, making way for the Rooster to cock a doodle doo!

Please bear with me and excuse my animal puns… :P

LNY_2017_01

The guilt of neglecting Ranka-chan for a long time now has finally caught up to me, so I guess I should let her come out of the closet and be the kanban musume this year in the celebration of this prosperous Lunar New Year. =w=

Tama-chan can just stay back, relax and enjoy the festive season this time…

「勝つのはご主人様に決まってますけどね」

Of all the many years of patient waiting ever since the release of the original PSP JRPG Fate/Extra, stretching from participating in multiple official polls (Where GSC asked of the ACG chara the collectors wanted, in scaled figure/Figma/Nendo form…), to myself subtly hinting and out-right asking the GSC staff (At events, on Twitter and other social mediums about the possibility of a Figma of my beloved foxy Miko), the Figma version of Fate/Extra’s Caster has finally been announced earlier this year.    

Time-skipped several months later, she has finally been released to the public a few weeks back.

No doubt I got my hands on one, taking another fortnight before she finally reached my place, after having to rescue her from the Postal Dude (Once again the office refused to deliver my stuff to my place, you can read all about their irresponsible behaviour here…).

Figma_Caster_Extra_01

Caster, her true name being Tamamo no Mae, came packaged in a standard, simple design, as per the newer generation of Figma box art.

Clad in her colour theme, black and bluish purple (purplish blue?), the over all simple element with minimum logo and text truly brings out the main focus of the package, the transparent window layer that shows off part the main figure herself.

タマちゃんの新しい姿

Shedding her older shell, Tama-chan has been reborn to a new body, perfecting her already excellent foxiness.

For the past few months, she has gone on another stage of evolution, breaking through her cocoon to become a more refine Goddess.

A fair word of warning though: the rest of the piccies after this are of the NSFW nature, please go ahead at your own discretion lest you risk being lectured by your boss/waifu/etc… :3c

Stage and Guests of PAM16

Moving into the Auditorium of Dewan Sri Pinang where it has a stage filled with seats for its audience, this is where all the guests of Penang Anime Matsuri 2016 Magical Summer performed their interviews and appearances…

PAM16_Stage_Events_&_Guests_01

It is also the coolest place of the venue thanks to its flow of air conditioning, thus making this a major resting place for many visitors during the course of the two-day event as anywhere else (Especially the main hall) were very humid and sweat-encouraging…

Display Booths of PAM16

Continuing from the previous post, today let’s have a closer look at them booths and displays during Penang Anime Matsuri 2016 Magical Summer, without the massive crowd in between. XDc

PAM16_Displays_01PAM16_Displays_02

Gundam seem to have taken a centre stage this year, with a fully poseable 1/12 RX-78 Gundam and a statue of Build Burning Gundam displayed at either end of the centre stairs of the main hall.

さらばだ、ご主人様!

For the longest time now, ご主人様 has been neglecting タマちゃん and failed to attend to タマちゃん’s needs. 

タマちゃん has had enough of this!!!

Tama_chan_New_Evolution_01

It is time タマちゃん going back to the void that is the 英霊の座.

Goodbye, ご主人様. It’s been a pleasure knowing and serving ご主人様…

P.S.: Don’t come looking for タマちゃん! Don’t try to summon タマちゃん again, タマちゃん will never ever answer ご主人様’s call again!

Going Apes in This Lunatic Season

The Goat went by, and the Monkey arrived to bring a prosperous new year ahead!

Once again, it’s the dawn of a new lunar year, the annual festive season bringing along lots of reds decorations, Mandarin oranges, God of Prosperity, lion dances, fireworks, Ang Pows (Red Packets), visiting relatives and friends that ask you the same question every year… Oh well you know the rest… :P

Even the Petit’gguys are in the mood to start their own celebrations of showering in golds and plum flowers… XDc

タマちゃんの花嫁修業?

Waking up this morning to find Tama-chan already close to me in seiza mode.

Hanayome_Shugyou_Tama-chan_01

It took me a moment before I fought off the morning drowsiness (It’s a public holiday on this Monday, whoopee! Still woke up early as per usual RL job routine tho… orz) to realise that it’s the anniversary of my celebration of being birth unto this reality.

Standees & Dolls @ AFA15

While not abundant as yesteryear’s, the number of various human sized standees present are still a sight to behold at various booths within the halls at Anime Festival Asia 2015

タマちゃんの太陽の神話礼装

It’s time to finally unveil the last outfit from Tama-chan’s official MyRoom wardrobe as seen in Fate/Extra CCC.

A commission placed over a year ago at my usual seamstress (Tama-chan’s past outfits are all her masterpieces), Rana really went all out and outdid herself this time around. 

Tama-chan_New_Evolution_Goddess_01

太陽の神話礼装, the outfit obtained once near the end of the game itself, is one of the 5 available outfits (漆黒の魔術服, the default costume in CCC; 蒼色の呪術服, the default costume of the previous game; 春色の現代衣装, a modern style usamimi parka; せくすぃーびきに, a white bikini) you can have Tama-chan wear during the course of the game.

超時空シンデレラ降臨

It’s been a full year since the announcement and the limited time pre-order period of the Macross Frontier x Volk collaboration, Dollfie Dream Sheryl Nome and Dollfie Dream Sister Ranka Lee… The long wait has finally ended when Volks deliver the shipments of these songstress to their owners all over the world.

Due to overwhelming response during the pre-order phase, Volks has opted to do three different delivery periods of the shipments, one at the end of each month starting from the 31st of October.

DDS_Ranka_Lee_01DDS_Ranka_Lee_02

Luckily my DDS Ranka Lee belongs to one of the earlier shipments, reaching the mainland shores just opposite my island in about a week’s time after leaving the factory on the 4th of November.

Unfortunately, due to her excessive value and the size of the package, Ranka-chan has been detained by the Customs during the just passed mid-week. It wasn’t until the weekend of the same week that I was able to rescue her by paying a modest amount of ransom fees.

Thankfully the amount isn’t that overwhelming as I initially predicted the fees might consist of 6% + 10% tax on top of the total value + shipping. Even the officer in charge is kind enough for giving a slight discount. XDc

再び、タマちゃんのせくすぃーびきに

With her recently upgraded furry details, I think it’s nigh time that I once again retake the ever foxy Tama-chan in her past apparel.

Tama-chan_New_Evolution_Bikini_01

This round she’ll suit up in her せくすぃーびきに, even though it’s off-season (It’s autumn now). =w=

Lovely Dolls of a Mini Fiesta

Dolls, especially those of the 1/3 variety, has fast becoming regulars during any local cons these past few years. Looks like a lot of closet parents finally coming outta their sheltered shell. w

While there is no officially dedicated display booth for dolls, many of our visiting musuko and musume managed to find refuge under a kind Comic Fiesta Mini booth owner’s willingness to lend a part of their display for such. 

CFMini_2015_Dolls_01

The owner is actually the same one I got to know during PAM15!

Very nice fellows, I’ve even placed a commission on them for something made for Tama-chan during our mingling at CFMini15. =w=
