Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Alter’s Chua Churam

My only real loot from Anime La is this lovely figure Alter’s Chua Churam. I originally had her pre-ordered but ended up dropping the pre-order and regretted it almost instantly.

Plus since the fact that right after she was released she was instantly sold out and impossible to track down for a decent price. i was able to get her for a really good price and spent the majority of the money i had for spending in that one day in Anime La.

She is beautiful and beautifully detailed. One of those figures that you just always are on the look out for, but at the same time don’t want to spend too much money her.

I would have done the shoot sooner but i’ve had a whirlwind of a week. The day after i got Chua Churam we had the panel at Anime La. The day after i got my car towed from my brother’s place.

Getting your car towed is the worst feeling in the entire world. It’s like having your car stolen, but you have to pay the jerks who took your car $283 to get the dang thing back!

That was pretty bad but not as bad as something else i had to do this week.

I finally broke it off with my boyfriend of almost 3 years. It was pretty tough but something I’ve been needing to do. i won’t go into detail since you really don’t want to know, and he still reads my site from time to time.

Back to this wonderful figure, I’m so surprised that I even canceled my order. She’s just so pretty and even her color scheme is just all my favorite colors.

I love the pink, I love her dress. My only complaint is the fact that her guitar doesn’t have any strings, it doesn’t seem that hard to make her guitar have strings. But for some reason Alter decided that they didn’t even need to bother.

Even with my one simple complaint she’s still such an amazing and beautifully detailed figure. I do love her base and do hope the metal rod they gave to support her keeps her from falling in the future. Other than that she’s a wonderful figure and if you do ever find her, do like me and don’t even think about how much she costs, just get her!

    Ohh~ New layout, I like~ Looks a lot fresher ;3

    And congrats on your new figure, she’s the only ‘ero’ figure I’d get, if I collected figures that is xD;

    Koshikos last blog post..Gashapons discovery~!

    This was the first PVC Figure in my collection. Chu is sitting right next to my comp right now- next to miku hatsune GSC ver! 🙂

    Good review- I like the background. Simple backgrounds really bring out the figure so you must make sure not to draw too much attention to the background.

    I also wish that CHU was a bit bigger… & I want Melissa Seraphy to have a rerun so I can set them side by side!! 🙁 I can’t find a single place to buy Melissa… that doesn’t cost an arm & a leg.

    Chu x Chu ftw 😀

    why thank you, it’s been like this for a while now but i love it. I’ve got a few ero figures but not many. i only splurge when they are extra pretty

    well she’s an amazing figure to start collecting with. mellisa would be a popular figure to re-release since she’s so popular now

    i have no clue, i should get my brother to fix that for me

    her eyes are so pretty, and hey now i know what it’s called when you have two eyes of different colors

  6. Ghosty says:

    She looks awesome, i also had pre-ordered her too but had to cancel it since i didn’t had the money back then. Ever since then i have been regretting it too. But i found it recently on a online store and I’m waiting for it to arrive 😀 Can’t wait to have her in my hands~

  7. Vanessa says:

    I saw this figure at my local anime retailer the other day. I fell in love with her almost instantly. I could have gotten her then, but there’s a con I’m going to coming up in a few months, so if I see her there, I’ll get her. This is definitely one figure to look out for.

  8. jinx626 says:

    Wow, that is a beautiful figure. Very detailed and as usual great Alter quality as one can expect from them. Too bad i have no clue about the show, nor the cash to just splurge on a figure i don’t know too much about, and also with the horrid yen to dollar exchange rate. Maybe if she was a cast-off figure it would’ve tipped the scales…^^

    And about tow trucks…i hated them with a passion during my times in college. i’ve gotten towed 3 times due to parking problems in the apartment complex which forced me to park illegally. Each time costing about $250+ to bail out my car. Eventually i got sick of being towed that i decided to just spend extra money for my own carport instead of fighting it out with other residents/roomates for the free permit parking spaces in the complex.

  9. Dancing Queen says:

    awesome, it’s so sad when you cancel a pre-order and then regret it because it’s all sold out 🙁

    lets home you can find her, finding her in a local store would have been the best bet

    yeah we learned later that we could have gone to the one lady’s actual apartment and gotten a permit to park and not get towed. Plus they are nice enough to give you a permit for a long time. Like the permit i got this last Saturday lasts till the 17th.

    She is beautiful! will definately have to keep an eye out for her during con season.

  11. Blowfish says:

    Wow thats one hell of a week!
    ChuaChuram is one hell of a figure where i really admire the work they have put into the little details like the frills.Im not really into this kind of figure but back then i was really tempted to order her just to support that craftmanship.The only real downside to her is her size.

    Wasnt your boyfriend the one who initally hooked you up on figures?How ironic that you are now one of the female figure blogger stars ^^

    hope you can find her like i did! She’s a keeper!

    actually no my brother was the one who got me into figures… but i’ll explain that in a post one day
