[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]

It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. I've been getting a lot of questions as to whether or not I'd keep this site as I'll be working with GSC now. I'll still post here from time to time, but lately my time has been taken up by work so it won't be as often sadly. But last night I got… [more]

Itasha no more…

The once lovely Itahsa is no more. Was in an accident yesterday, got rear ended and now my car is an accordion. At a stop light i stopped but the person behind me didn’t. He plowed into me, making me hit the person in front. Now i’m carless and quite sad…

The person I hit didn’t even stop, yet they didn’t have any damage to their car, which is surprising when you see my front end. The officer who stopped told me that since he left I’m not liable and he would actually be in trouble since he left the scene.

From the pictures the back doesn’t look too bad but the trunk doesn’t stay shut and the frame seems to be all mangled up.

Poor Kero chan, at least he wasn’t hit but the rest was damaged.

I’m fine, went to the doctors had some xrays and a CT scan. I’m all fine but have taken some days off work since i’m on some very nice pain medication cause my back and neck are still very much sore and can’t work on my meds, that and now I have no car. Still waiting on the insurance to say whether they will pay for the repairs or just pay for a new car. I’m leaning towards new car since i’ve been eyeing a Mazda 3 In red! I’ll of course Itahsa that sucker out! BTW my car technically was no longer an itahsa for a while now, the stickers were low quality (of course i did them myself) and started to fade so my dad took them off with the pressure washer. Still i didn’t expect for this to happen and while i’ve been planning on getting a new car i didn’t expect this to jump start the process so soon. Either way i’m fine and healthy and very proud of my car for keeping me safe in this accident!

    Well it’s important that you’re alright. Cars can always be fixed or replaced. But still, it sort of pains me to see a car in ruins because a car is a part of your life. The damage doesn’t look too bad at the back, but the front definitely doesn’t look good. Judging from how far crushed it is I would say it’s a write off.

      have you been talking to my mom? cause that’s what she said! she was just glad i was alright and that she doesn’t car about the car since that can be replaced

  2. ShadowKit says:

    Wow, that really sucks, but it’s good that you’re okay – that’s what counts the most, after all.

    I hate how many careless drivers are out there. I was in a parking lot fender-bender a couple months ago myself. I was over halfway out of my spot already when someone decided that they didn’t want to wait, and swiped the back of my car. Stupid state law decides that whoever gets hit in the back is the one at fault in parking lots, though. What a bunch of bullshit. /eyeroll I just wish that more people were careful and weren’t always in such a hurry to get everywhere. This sort of crap that’s happened to you and that happened to me wouldn’t happen at all if people could just hold their horses.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      the guy even told me that he wasn’t paying attention and that his brakes were bad. then if you don’t pay attention and have bad brakes don’t drive!

      • ShadowKit says:

        At least he’s fessing up, rather than coming up with some random crap (though I do have to wonder about the brakes thing… ).

        And yeah, if you can’t pay attention to the road, and if your car needs to be fixed in any way that will hinder performance, then you don’t need to be on the road in the first place. Dx

        How was his car looking, btw? I sure hope it looks a ton worse than yours. >=(

        • Dancing Queen says:

          his didn’t seem to have much damage but then the officer pointed out his radiator was leaking and it must be cracked

  3. Karasu says:

    It became a literal 痛車 since both you and it got injured. ><;

  4. Flip says:

    sad :(. but good that you are ok.

  5. meronpan says:

    so sorry to hear about your accident! i actually saw those pics you tweeted and remember seeing the rear dmg one first, thinking it was rough but not too bad… but damn, then i clicked through to the pics of the front and seeing your hood and everything bent to all hell… my condolences.

    good to hear you didn’t suffer any major injuries from the ordeal. whiplash sucks, but as long as there’s no permanent dmg at least you’ll get over it in time.

    best of luck in your new car hunt ^^

      I hit a huge raised truck, the force of the hit would normally have made my airbags deploy but with him being so high us and my sensor is down low they didn’t

    The damage to your license plates looks terrible. I don’t know a single mechanic who can fix them.

    Honestly your car looks perfectly fine, even your headlights are intact. A mate of me had a low speed crash into a Truck approximately 5-10Km/h (3-6 MpH)(It was his fault but the truckdriver drove away since he didn’t registered. The Cars are designed to fold that way and absorb as much force as possible, if you had one of these old fashoned cars with stiff frame you car would possibly only have a scratch.
    My friend hat to pay the repairs himself it was about 600Eur about 900USD (nowadays). The major part he had to pay was the headlights 120EUR(170USD), a blank hood 80EUR(110USD) and painting the blank hood about 400EUR(570USD).
    I’am not an expert but I’d say the Insurance will just cover the repairs and that would probably just be 1000 to 5000 USD (very carefully estimated) well but if there is an internal damage you may get the full amount for your car.

    Well I and the readers of howagirlsfigures.com would be very glad if you could inform us about the entire process e.g problems with the insurenace, repairs, getting a new car whatever

    However the guy was honest and he hadn’t raised any trouble so you should be glad. You can’t judge someone for not paying attention to the road all the time. Well its an important fact that paying attention to the road at all coast is a main pillar of driving in public, but on the other hand we are just humans and we are prolly designed to make mistakes. I hope he learned his lesson and will from now on pay way more attention to the road hes driving on. Better a small accident that opens his eyes than something that could have killed other ppl.

    And now at the very end.
    You are okay and that is the very most important point (who else would continue this great site :D ).

    • Dancing Queen says:

      but then if there is frame damage the insurance won’t repair it. My last car was involved in a fender bender and they scraped her since there was frame damage and the repairs would have been over the value of the car.

      i’ll keep people informed as much as i can on my site and through twitter

    Ouch, that sucks. This reminds me of a car accident I was in. My family was driving to NY to visit my grandparents. (It’s like, a long, evil 14 hour drive.) Well, we’re driving along the highway and we noticed a bus pulled over on the shoulder, but it wasn’t blocking the way or anything. The guy in front of us though, decided to wait for the bus when he could easily get by, and stopped right on the highway. My dad slammed the breaks, and we barely stopped in time. But, the person behind us didn’t stopped so we were sandwiched. (The bus drove away right after the accident. D=< ) Not to mention the gas in our van started to smell weird, and we had to stand outside in a huge thunderstorm. ; ___ ;

    But yeah, I hope you get a new car. We could of kept are van, it still drove, but fixing the frame would be a pain, and it would never be the same again. So we got a new van.

    Here’s pics of the smashed van:

    Back: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3570/3553357903_fb0a5a8197_b.jpg

    And yes we drove that van all the way back home, but that time around many people stayed away from it. =D

      ouch that must have sucked, once my brother rear ended a guy in the freeway for coming into our lane and then stopping, worst part we were all on our way to universal studios… but the car was drivable and we still went and tried to make the day fun (accept my brother was still in a sour mood since of course he crashed his car)

  9. Blowfish says:

    Wow thats quite crazy how much your front is messed up while your back has only a few bumps.What amazes me even more is the fact that the car infront of you got out of this without a scratch.
    Thanks god its the car and not you.Its just a lump of metal after all

    • Dancing Queen says:

      well it was a huge raised truck and the bumpers are made to do that, i got tons of damage since my hood hit his bumper… i hate raised trucks…

  10. You should go smack that guy around (the one that hit you). His insurance should cover you. Just make sure that the guy that you hit doesn’t try to blame you.
    Having been involved in 2 accidents in the past 6 months (neither my fault), I can say dealing with insurance companies is a pain especially if the other driver tries to place liability on you :-/ Your insurance company shouldn’t have to pay anything, it should be all the other driver
    .
    The fact that you’re OK is most important, of course. Hope you find a nice, new car ^^

    Absolutely LOVE that Kero sticker. Seeing itmade me smile. Although seeing anything Cardcaaptor Sakura makes me smile with fond memories (flashes Clow Book w/cards). I need to drop my car off to be fixed next week from a huge chunk of ice hitting my hood on the highway.

      i got him a while back, gonna have to get another for the newcar. i plan to Itasha the new car out and make it a Gurren Lagann car, but i’ll have Kero Chan on there too!

  14. trixoptics says:

    Oh man, that just blows. At least you are fine, that is the good thing. Just like anyone else, I would definitely not want to get into a car accident, even if it is not my fault. I have no patience at all, and it is just a pain in the ass to go through all the process.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      the process is terrible, i hope i get a rental soon. i need a car for now while they decide what to do with my car

    Maybe after you get your new car all Itasha’d out people will be less likely to hit it.

    Although I will cry manly tears if the Gurren-Dan mobile ever takes damage. Next time if they hit you, get out of the car and hit ‘em back! Kick reason to the curb!

      If they only fix the car i’ll be so mad if they have to replace the trunk since i’ll be losing kero chan and obama :(

  19. FMPhoenixHawk says:

    Mmmmm, pain meds…..

    Seriously, it’s good to know you’re okay. As for the car, it will depend on how extensive the frame damage is. Having worked in the insurance biz, and having had two accidents, I know that minor frame damage will result in them just repairing it. However, the total value of the car is important. When I got into the accident with the semi back in 2000, they scrapped the car because the total damage would have cost too much to repair. When I got hit by the deer last year, however, they repaired it (Despite the $3500 price tag) because the value of the vehicle was still more (Apparently, the 1998 GMC Jimmy drops in value more slowly than even other SUVs of it’s mocel year.) than replacing the entire vehicle.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      my car isn’t worth much even though it’s an ’06 but again it all depends on the amount of damage it has, i’m still not entirely sure

      • FMPhoenixHawk says:

        Well, an ’06 will probably get repaired if the frame damage isn’t too bad. Any car less than 5 years old is more than likely going to be repaired.

  20. donald says:

    oh man, thats awful. the drivers behind me always make me so nervous, i can never trust them to pay attention to the road. it’s good you were not seriously hurt. good luck with the new car you want. ganbatte ^_^

  22. Giant Robo says:

    Sorry to hear about your accident. Same thing happened to me (in my 6 month old Acura Integra) I could barely open my jaw wide enough to eat for several days. Spent almost 4 years in really bad pain in my upper neck. For that I got a total of $4,000 and that just about covered the meds and doctor co-pay. The guy in the truck that hit the girl behind me, who in turn hit me, ran off as soon as I mentioned I called the cops.

    Hope this works out for you a lot better than it did for me.

    Best wishes,

    Robert J
