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^

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…

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

Shocking Uniform of a Foxy Caster

The progress of my newest acquisition of Tama-chan’s 1/6 scale figure has been a troublesome one, not only the maker delayed her release for a moon’s cycle, I also made a bad decision of having her shipped via an alternate courier than my usual route…

Furthermore, thanks to the meddling of the local custom terrorists due to the said alternate courier, I ended having to top up 30% more than her base cost to secure her release… Uguu~

Thankfully, Tama-chan arrived at my door steps in just a few days due to local holidays at the end of last month.

Time to take a look at her in her full unboxing glory.

High School Fox of an Extella Fate

Upped on Kahotan’s blog is a preview of a certain good foxy wife of the Fate/Extra series, Tama-chan, clad in her JK (Joshi-Kousei aka High School Girl) costume as seen in an illustration as well as in-game unlockable of the musou game from last year, Fate/Extella!

While I’m no longer actively collecting fixed-posed figures (The last one being Tama-chan in her CCC default outfit from years back IIRC), instead going for action figures ala Figma or similar, I find myself unable to resist this beauty this time around…

Will definitely PO her in the next few days… =w=

Anyway, the below are excerpts from the original post on Kahotan’s…

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…

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.
