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]

Anime Expo ’11 Loot!~

At this past Anime Expo 2011 I got some loot while there, while I don’t usually do Loot posts I’m actually really proud of the little bit of anime related merchandise I got this year! First here some cute kitty paws, a tail, an Adipose, Kyubei and CRXThrasher came by and gave me this adorable Mini Dakimakura for Dollfie Yoko!

Stopped by the Level-up Studios booth for the Nyancat shirt, I knew I was going to get this shirt no matter what, I’m so glad they came down to AX so i was able to get one in person! Also couldn’t leave without the Giga Pudding shirt from J-list.

As you can see I adore my Otaku shirts and also got this cute Luka shirt from Kinokuniya and the Official Anime Expo 2011 shirt!

More J-list goodies with the Kyubei shirt. Also the Mikunopolis booth has this adorable Hello Kitty X Miku shirt that I couldn’t live without!

Also got the Kalafina tour shirt and my AX Staff Polo!

I almost never buy fan art at the artist alley, but this year there was some amazing artwork I couldn’t pass on! Plus the good people at Sanshee.com gave me the Fakku poster! Such wonderful people! I can’t wait to see them at AX Again!

Had a new friend Zar come by with this awesome art, he had it where I only saw the Kamina then had me flip it over to see Yoko holding a Hanako Dakimakura, I was so overwhelmed I cried on the spot! I love all of you guys so much and I never expect you to do these things for me and they honestly mean so much to me! I’m going to get it framed!!

The Miku posters I scored at con, I heard later that the Toyota booth had different posters on different days and wish I knew as I would have gone by to get the other posters too!!

Staff get their own customized badge art and of course I choose Dollfie Yoko for mine, I was told it might not be acceptable since she’s a little ecchi but seemed that she got past!

Closer look at my Badge and Lanyard, filled it up with pins as I do every year!

Some pencil boards that I honestly won’t use but only got since it’s Card Captor Sakura merchandise and I adore the series too much to not buy anything legit I can find! Also found this amazing mouse of Snow Miku and that it glows and changes colors! My laptop needed a mouse for use at AX Live so while it was about $65 I’m glad I got it if only for the Miku factor! Also got that adorable new Iphone case for if mine ever breaks on me 🙁

Got my Mirai Figma at Kid Nemo as well as I got Danny to sign it!

Also all but the white turtle phone charm are from Anime Expo, two Miku charms, Yoko, Kamina and the cutest Ika Musume!!

I’m really glad of my purchases at Anime Expo this past weekend, I didn’t make very many figure purchases as the figures I really wanted AKA Alter Bounty Hunter Yoko and Max Factory Real Image Yoko weren’t on sale anywhere 🙁 I’m so sad it’s over but I’m excited for next year! Now to save my money again for next year’s Anime Expo!

AX Live! Every Thursday at 7pm PST! We’ve been doing Giveaways recently so make sure to check out the show to be able to win some awesome prizes!! Plus every week we give away a 4day badge to the convention for 2011!

    That’s some nice loot you got, Frances! 😀

    I really like the artwork you picked up. And that Yoko holding Hanako Dakimakura is just gold. Now that’s some great fanart right there 😀

    Wow! I have a copy of that Yoko poster between the QB and Fakku posters. The weird thing is that I bought it at Anime Evolution in Vancouver. That artist must really get around!

    Also, be careful with that Gurren Lagann Key holder. You may have the mini chain break if it gets caught on something 🙁

    I regret not going to this event.

    wow that kyubey shirt looks nice. All it needs is a good hat to match it.

    Also that snow miku mouse looks awesome. I saw a video on youtube that shows how it lights up.

    That long miku strap looks nice too. I am curious if they sold a Luka one
