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

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…

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

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.

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.

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.

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=

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.

タマちゃんの例のセーター

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.

提督を想う気持ちは誰にも負けないネ!

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…

Tama-chan_Kongou_01Tama-chan_Kongou_02

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.

タマちゃんの短い和服

Crying foul over the intense heat of the hot summer days, I’ve finally succumbed to Tama-chan’s demands and got her a new Kimono, in part as preparation for the upcoming Bon Odori visit next Moon…

Tama-chan_Short_Kimono_01Tama-chan_Short_Kimono_02

From Rosemary Town (迷迭香小镇) on Taobao, this short, sexy Kimono set consists of  the Kimono itself, the obi, a pair of knee socks, a couple of red ribbons, a flowery head-dress, a guitar necklace and a fan (Sold Separately via add-on option on the sales page).

タマちゃんの礼装 Ver. 2.22: You Can (Not) Stop Improve

As mentioned during my latest post on Tama-chan’s ever-expanding improvements, aside from her 蒼色の呪術服, her new outfit from Fate/Extra CCC also had undergone a complete overhaul, courtesy of my seamstress. 

Version 1.0 of the CCC outfit 漆黒の魔術服 (Which you can see in full during AFA12) was commissioned some time before the release of the original PSP game itself, of which only the front side of the concept art for the outfit was shown at the time. 

Tama-chan_CCC_2.22_01Tama-chan_CCC_2.22_02

Due to the lack of official arts on the outfit’s back view during the time, my seamstress had to improvise and made the outfit as she sees fit, which was of course far from accurate as I found out later after the release of the game. 

Striving to make Tama-chan as close to her original as possible, a remake was commissioned alongside the aforementioned default reisou.

タマちゃんのせくすぃーびきに

It’s barely a month into Spring and Tama-chan has already in the mood to visit the beach! XDc

タマちゃんの礼装 Ver. 2.22: You Cannot (Stop) Upgrade

The never-ending version-ups of my beloved Tama-chan continues, with several more modifications as well as newly made replacements adorn this lovely foxy miko, further enhancing her resemblance to her original concept art of Fate/Extra, the PSP JRPG of whence she originally appeared in…

Tama-chan_Version_2.22_01Tama-chan_Version_2.22_02

During the events of the Saint Valentine’s, Tama-chan unfortunately had an uncomfortable staining, causing her to undergo intense treatment for the following couple of months… orz 

She’s feeling much better now, with most of those staining gone and/or getting milder you can barely notice them now…

タマちゃんの究極進化、可も?

Ever since the night before the Dragon Day, Tama-chan has barely been genki following the passing Moons, lying in a state of utmost inactivity lethargy.

Don’t be alarmed tho Tama-chan’s not in harm’s way, actually her Master was in the midst of readying her for several minor operations to further enhance her aesthetics. ^_~

Tama_chan_Operation_01

For this grand project, many acquisitions were made from the passing Moons, most notably from Taobao (A Chinese equivalent of evilBay/Yahoo! Japan Auctions) by using a proxy service called My Parcel Store

Amongst the materials acquired are: Volks Shapely L Bust, Wersaze Wrist Joint, Wersaze Yawashiri, Cool Cat Fortified Aluminium Alloy Neck JointMiruya Wig and Moe-Castle’s Miko Outfit (Not shown here).
