Dance in the Fire (Works)

Departing a couple of hours before the official initiation of the Bon Odori Matsuri last weekend in order to secure a good parking spot for my ride, I’ve reached the site already full of early birds scattered all around the venue.


Various erected canopies await the visiting throng for the evening!

Also held within the same area is the Transformers Street Art event (Of which you may see some Autobot/Decepticon logos and/or Bumblebee/Optimus Prime statues cameo in the following photos), which I’ll cover in my next post…



A new year, a new dawn! A Lunar one that is… (   |  ‿‿  |   )

Regular followers of Sisterly Love series will immediately recognised the following 4koma… ^_~


For the uninitiated, it is the Year of the Goat, or Sheep, or Ram, or whatever you like it to be… :P

Sorry for the reuse of the same neta, but I think the 4koma is very suitable for this Lunar New Year.



During the beginning of December last year, a sexy Japanese cosplayer posted a tweet of herself in a Turtleneck Sweater she got from COMFILAX, a fashion brand.



The series of photos shared quickly gained recognition amongst the twittersphere and soon became a meme.



The ever popular space opera idol mecha anime Macross Frontier, in collaboration with Volks, will be releasing a couple of Dollfie Dreams based upon the former’s main heroines.

A comrade from China (Or so it seems since he/she’s a Weibo user) snapshot this animangazine print showing an advert of the collab, with an illustration of  both the Galaxy Fairy Sheryl Nome and the Super Dimensional Cinderella Ranka Lee on it. ^_~

Macross Frontier x Dollfie Dream Poster

According to the print, both of them will be made into Volks’s ever popular 1/3 Dollfie Dream doll series, and will be a Pre-Order Project starting in November, similar to the likes of their previously released DD Saber (Fate/Extra) and Saber Alter instead of their usual lottery based orders… :3c

Amongst the two heroines of the anime series, the younger and more innocent Ranka Lee is my waifu fave. 



Teased some time earlier, Tama-chan dons her lovely cosplay of one of Kantai Collection’s most popular Kanmusu (Kantai Musume; Ship Daughteru): Kongou.

An outfit from a Taobao store called DH Doll House, the workmanship is surprisingly fine, for this particular mass-production piece…


Got Tama-chan her cosplay wig via the same source as well, re-styling the base wig is not short of a hard work though, particularly the front bangs that attached to her twin buns which are clip-ons.

In the end I had to give up on attaching the bangs onto the buns… May need to research on how to do so later.
