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]

Steampunk Gathering Anime Expo 2009

The Steampunk Gathering at Anime Expo, organized by my best friend Fancy India was a success. It was such a blast and everyone who showed up had such amazing and intricate cosplays! I was worried at first that the gathering was going to be small and not have many people interested but it turned out to be pretty big and we got some awesome and amazing shots! Extra Special thanks to Russell, Fancy India’s brother, for taking these amazing shots, all of the pictures on my site having to do with Anime Expo were all taken by him, this kid is good!

Did it again, I didn’t get this guy’s name! Saw him at Anime LA ’09 and took tons of pics, loved his vest! At least I got some pictures with him this time! Next time I’ll get his name, unless he finds this then i can put a name to the face ^_~

Fancy India’s awesome Steampunk cosplay, her book was over 100 years old if I remember correctly

Loren Haskins IV, being badass. Don’t know if he was posing but he looked so cool here.

Some awesome groups shots, KawaiiClare also looked amazing but there weren’t any single shots of her in her awesome cosplay, at least not on my camera.

I did take these, Loren and Russell having some Fisticuffs.

Just the most awesome and detailed props I’ve ever seen.

Really great group shots, too many of us to get into one picture

hard getting good group shots as well when people like to change poses from time to time.

Also Corset + low cut top = wow cleavage, so everyone had to see the ladies, i know it’s a lot to take in but they aren’t always out, i tend to keep the girls covered but they wanted to come out for pictures today.

I really like this shot, the few of just us.

More group shots

Gonna try some flying action!

Oh wait the wind has changed directions!

Crash landed


I do believe this was the whole gang

Someone said something funny and i was trying not to laugh but be cool, didn’t really work out as planned

more badassery

As my first Gathering it was so awesome, it was also my first Steampunk cosplay and I really did enjoy it. Thanks again to Fancy India, she designed the outfit and we made it together! (more like i sat around and watched and went “OHH THAT’S PRETTY!”) This gathering for sure sealed the deal for me to do more Steampunk cosplays, it seems so simple at first but everyone’s cosplays are so intricate and so detailed. It’s mostly small things that people have that just so amazing, I almost wish we could dress like this daily! Check back I’ll be linking to the sites i find that have posted more pictures of the gathering! Also if you have your own posted up put a link in the comments and I’ll link it as well!

    Wow awesome, I wish we had such stuff over here. I like steampunk a lot as well, it’s so much more sophisticated than the gothloli trend. I like the giant spanner girl up above, but everyone’s really good.

      it’s such an awesome style and really looks so cool, what i love is how anyone can do a steampunk cosplay and it doesnt’ have to be the most beautiful people but just normal everyday people with cool stuff!

    hot cosplay! ^^

  3. Rin says:

    Really cool!!!
    I think this is the first time I’ve seen that many steampunk cosplayers in one picture…
    Usually, I see only 3 or 4 cosplays of that at a convention, nit that massive.

  4. ChibiKira says:

    the costumes are sooo cool,i think I’ll use the style of them for some character designs 😀

    Nice gathering! I love seeing people in steampunk. I saw steampunk Ghostbusters at Comic Con a while back. Can’t wait to see if more pop up at Con this year.

    Also, I hope everything went well at your panel on Saturday :3

    Lastly, is it possible to ask for a link exchange?

  14. TheGeek says:

    Everyone looks very nice. One of the things about steampunk look is it can everything from simple neo-victorian to full out gadgets and goggles.
