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]
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]
Did you know I like Yoko from Gurren Lagann? Well I do! I own about 28 Yoko figures and am still missing only one to complete my collection of all the Scaled PVCs of Yoko. This is the latest one that has been released for Gurren Lagann's 5th Year Anniversary. Of course I'm partially biased when it… [more]
Just got these in today from a friend who did some photo coverage of The Indecent Otaku comedy show at Anime Expo 2010 this year. I love these photos and sadly they’re the only good photos I have in this cosplay. Doing this show was really hard on me this year, so many things went wrong so quickly right before con and during con. I barely had a chance to sit and breathe or eat. Still I had a blast!
I thought while showing off these pictures I’d talk about The Indecent Otaku Comedy Show and my reasons why I won’t be doing the show anymore. It was a fun time when we did the first show back in ’09 with Anime-Diet with our group. But it was a lot of work and last minute things coming in. We tried to do the show again and not have last minute ideas, only ideas well rehearsed and well thought out this year, but sadly things didn’t go as planned.
We did have our videos, and guests planned out but still last minute with prizes things got hectic, we had so many issues with the raffle tickets, first not having enough, then having too much that ended up making the tickets so pointless that we had to throw out prizes into the audience, bad idea. Unless you were super tall you weren’t able to catch the prizes, I saw people hitting each other to get their hands on some of these figures and other prizes. It was honestly scary.
Not to mention my throwing arm is just horrible, as many of you who were in the audience noticed most of the prizes i threw kept going in the same direction, ACK! Plus we were so overwhelmed with Sponsor support that it became too many prizes to give out.
I’m not coming back to the show not because this show wasn’t successful or because of a falling out with any hosts. Heck Benu our second host is coming to my Birthday party this Saturday! He’s gonna do some magic for us! I’m only stopping the show since it stopped being fun this year. While it was amazing getting Danny Choo all the way over from Japan to come for our show and then also having him as a guest of honor, the show took it’s toll on me.
Normally AX Is a fun experience for me, meeting new people, scanning the exhibit halls over and over again till I’m absolutely poor beyond belief from spending all my money on figures. Catching as many concerts as I can, seeing fun interesting panels and more. This year? I spent so much of it in either my hotel room crying because I had no time to set up for the show and no one to help, or running around the convention like a chicken with no head trying to get things organized before the show on Saturday. It got to a point that the day of the show I was screaming at my best friends, yelling at cab drivers and on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and really I never let myself get like that and when we started our show we decided early on if it became “work” and “not fun anymore” we would quit, well it became work and wasn’t fun anymore. Heck I only got to go into the Exhibit hall once to look around and that was the last day about an hour before the convention closed, if you’ve ever gone shopping with me at a con you know I need at least 3 or so hours before I’m sure that I’ve seen everything and I know what I’m going to spend my money on.
I do hope that maybe one day someone will come back and do the show justice, make a comedy show that is entertaining, with live music, prizes and fun. But I’d rather be in the audience cheering them on then on stage doing the show. Not only that, with being on AX Live I’ll have tons of responsibilities of filming for AX during the convention and filming things for my own show Toybox, which coincidentally was supposed to air today but due to illness on our director/editors part it’s been postponed a week.
As for me, while I’ve been lacking in making new posts for you guys, I’m kicking things into gear now that this term for school is over, and I’ll make sure my class load next term isn’t so much that I’m kept from bringing figure reviews to you! Plus with AX Live, I’ve met so many wonderful people who collect figures as well who love lending them to me for review, so even if I can’t afford the latest and greatest figures they can and I’ll still be able to show you why I love this hobby so much! Meeting people who love the same thing you do, who understand why you love them so much and don’t think you’re crazy when you want to spend $800 on Dollfie Yoko!
On another note… Obligatory underboob shot for you guys. I figure I always give you guys the panty shots with figures, and the naughty parts, so it would be wrong to hide these from you…
I want you all to know, today on my 23rd birthday, I love you all. Between the bombardment on Facebook, Twitter, E-mail’s and MyFigureCollection messages of Happy Birthday to always the wonderful fans on AX Live’s chat during the show. You are why I still do this, that and because nothing can keep me away from owning the best and newest and prettiest awesome figures that are always being released! I Love you all, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your constant support!
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!
