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]

Dual Monitors, New Figures and Kyon’s a Lefty

Been busy dealing with more things about my Great Aunt lately so it’s been harder and harder to come and post. Pretty much she is 82 and has been diagnosed with Leukemia. But since she also has so many pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and Hepatitis. Radiation will only make things worse now. So the only solution left is finding a place for her to be comfortable and give her pain meds till she passes. Now enough with the sad stuff, on to more figures!

Got three new figures this week, first i got Kyon. Notice anything weird? Keep looking you’ll notice it soon!

Have a view from the back. Still don’t see it?

Kyon arrived with two left arms, instead of one right and one left. I e-mailed the retailer and i might be able to get a replacement. But it’s not for sure. I really hope i do since his arm doesn’t bend properly since it’s the wrong arm…

Then i got my GSC 1/8 Moetan Pastel Ink. She’s really cute and I’m glad i got her. I’m also very glad i didn’t have to pay full price. She’s awfully cute but at the same time the base was a pain in the ass to set up.

and third was Alter’s 1/8 Hanamoto Hagumi that i got from Riuva’s Figure bazzar. She was a really great price since she was broken. the leaf she holds had broken from the stalk but it was nothing a bit of super glue couldn’t fix!

Oh and my dual monitors are so freaking sweet! No idea how i lived without it before! It was a bit of a hassle to get it to work since i had to get a new video card but the first one i got didn’t work. So my awesome brother got me a replacement and set it all up for me! Oh and he also got me new speakers as well since my old speakers weren’t all that great and i wanted speakers i could hang up on the wall. But these new ones are so slim there is no need and i can have them on the desk!

Also a quick thanks to everyone who’s commented on my aunt’s problem and e-mailed me as well. My mom and me really appreciate the support you’ve all shown!

    Im sorry to hear that about your aunt.Atleast shes going to pass away without any pain.Ill hope shell stay the aunt you know as long as possible since the painkillers tend to mess with the patients personalities.

    Back to the good news:

    Hah i knew it! Kyon is born with two left hands!Those Figma incidents get more and more.Maybe i should also email HLJ about my problem with kanus spear.

    Doesnt it feel good to get a figure pretty cheap and you even helped someone out?I bet tjhan appreciated your help very much ^^

    @Blowfish:
    in all honesty my aunt was never the nicest person, but lately she’s been much kinder since she realizes she’s going to pass soon. It’s so sad really…

    See the thing is HLj could claim that you did the damage and not them πŸ™
    but i’d still e-mail them about it. not like it would cost you anything. I was so glad to find that sale for the Hagumi figure. Really tjhan did me a favor more than anything since she’s sold out everywhere and i wanted her badly!

  3. Blowfish says:

    Im with you there.I hope itll get by quick for her

    Well…errrr…You could say that i damaged the spear…It depends on how you look at it.
    I just inserted Kanus spear into her hand and the paint went off the spear and is now into her palm.I didnt use force or whatsoever.I fear that ill have to live with a now crappy looking spear and that ill have to display her without it. My first Figma and already a bad experience….

    @Blowfish:
    i’d e-mail them anyways and see if they can do anything, if not why not try to get some modeling paint and fix it up yourself? I’ve had to do that with one figure, the paint on her neck for some reason was so terrible, so i went to a hobby shop that sold paint for model cars and such and got the right colors and fixed her neck up a bit. It isn’t perfect but looks much better than it did before

    Sorry to hear about your aunt. I can’t imagine how that must be.

    I think both my figmas are ok. I know Lelouch is fine and Haruhi looked ok when I looked at her. I had to put her back into her box since I don’t have a place to really display her. ): 2 screens? I don’t know if I could do that. @_@

    @Larein:
    It’s hard to know that she’s going to pass soon, but at the same time it allows us to know that since she’s going to pass that we need to spend as much time with her and make as many memories now.

    Lulu is fine and other than the hands issue kyon is fine. and two monitors is so awesome! It helps with multi tasking and such.

    I’m sorry to hear about ur aunt. I know it’s a bit tough as I’ve been there before. My grandma passed away a year ago. T_T
    Moving on, when u mentioned ur kyon having two left arms, I instantly checked my one just to make sure. lol
    I know u got that GSC moetan from HS bargain bin. I missed out. T_T
    Nice dual monitors. I want another one but I have no room for it.

    Optics last blog post..What’s in the box? 6

  8. shame about kyon πŸ™

    I swear i still have nightmares about putting the moetan base together lol, what I found was the worst was getting her ribbons in.

    Nomadicwriters last blog post..CLAMP!

  9. blitzero21 says:

    Sorry to hear about your aunt that’s real tough…but I like your setup the two monitors is really sweet….plus all of those figures add a good personal touch…I like your blog I will definitely be checking it out again…don’t forget to check mine out as well best wishes for your aunt

  10. Dancing Queen says:

    @Optic:

    I want your Pastel Ink!!!!!!
    I love this version!!!! Comes with a cool stand!!!!!
    Unlike the koto version!!!!!!
    I hope you get that problem with Kyon soon!!!

  12. Dancing Queen says:

    @Rin:
    Pastel Ink really looks awesome, if it weren’t for the base i don’t think i would have bought her + the fact she was cheap. I do hope i can get kyon fixed somehow…

  13. ron~ says:

    too bad for kyon, i hope you get replacement.

    GSC moetan is the best moetan figurine πŸ™‚ careful with her leaning forward tho.. mine leaned already, but I managed to fix her back.

    ron~s last blog post..Back up…

  14. spidr245 says:

    I went back to check my Kyon too since you made this post. I just got my recently so I was a little concerned. I was a little more fortunate, so I hope you get yours fixed soon.

  15. Kamugin says:

    I’m amused to see that you have two versions of the Himekuri Image Girl. I got the black one recently, I loved her but my wife said that she was disgusting, too lolicon… sad, but nevertheless she is placed on the shelf above my monitor right now πŸ˜›

  16. Dancing Queen says:

    @Ron~:
    still no news from the retailer on my kyon πŸ™ how did you fix moetan? she’s not so much leaning from her self but the book doesn’t hold her well up enough

    @spidr245:
    i doubt they’d make th same mistake twice, mine is juts a fluke…

    @Kamugin:
    well she was so cute and it only felt right to get both. i still the Christmas ver. but shew as a wonfes only figure so she’s practically impossible to find now http://www.hlj.com/product/KYD01092

  17. Kamugin says:

    @Dancing Queen:

    I’d like to get the red one too! I think she was the best of the trio, but she is long sold out as you’ve said πŸ™
