Azone Addict

This... This is the eye that caught my attention back in December... Her official name is Ellen / Time of Eternal II. It was initially Lilia / Black Raven who caught my eye but she sold out fast during the preorder period. Both were released by Azone. Lilia caught my eye because of Haku's pretty Sora... But I realize I didn't really want her. I had a phobia about twin tails from Azone nowadays... So then I looked for Ellen, who was sold out as well...

And then suddenly, just the head came on auction at Yahoo Japan! I was getting anxious in a dilemma! Should I get her or not?? I decided to get her anyway. This was during Christmas... So it was somewhat a bad idea doing business around this time. I tried Shopping Mall Japan at first, but somehow the seller won't sell it through them, so I went through Goody Japan instead. Easy process... Finding the body was easy as well since Hobby Search had it in stock... By January 24th, "Ellen" was complete... But she was naked. Enter Chun, the wonderful seamstress...

A Couple of Weeks in Vancouver

It has been 21 years since I moved to Vancouver, Canada. Unfortunately I don't do too many Vancouver posts... Just not my thing, lol. Fortunately, I have a few unsorted photos to post and I have no idea how to post them, except in this manner. Uhmm... Yea, I'm not gonna follow a certain blogger by titling this post this way, lol. I just had no other way to describe this post :P If you're that interested, I could do more, but it'll be boring XD Anyway... These couple of weeks started off on April 1st.

Doll Meet at the Queen Elizabeth Park

Unlike last year, we had to wait a bit longer for spring this year. By the beginning of April, it was still not warm enough for the cherry blossoms to bloom. But it was still a nice day to be at a doll meet! We're able to take photos with some of the flowers.

Belated White Day

Way way way back on Valentine's Day, 2 months ago, Saber gave me this giri choco... Ah well, it's actually a drawing of Saber giving me giri choco, an obligatory chocolate that's given to men, but not meant to be out of love ^^; Errr... Anyway, I'm sure some of you know that already, but what you didn't know is that this Saber was drawn and given to me by Yakuri 2 months ago ^_^ Hehe I was very surprised specially since she was swearing as she tried to upload this picture to send it to me, lol.

St. Pat's Doll Meet - 03.19.2011

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Now give me your wallet...
 Another backlog set of photos... The meet was close to St. Patrick's Day, so we made it into a St. Patrick's Day theme. So we were all trying to get our dolls to wear green ^^ We met at Nikkoffee again since we liked it so much last time. Not to mention it's pretty quiet in the mornings, so we get the cafe to ourselves :D

Mini Anime/Doll Meet - 03.12.2011

And now, starting on my backlog of photos that I didn't post yet... It was a very busy March. Starting from the end of February to be exact. I was preparing the April Fool's joke that I planned with Chun and then started work my 200th post with the stop motion video, and then work 6 days a week when one of my co-workers were off on vacation. It was very busy, but I figured I should have some fun while I have my days off. So on the second Saturday, I had a mini meet at my place... But I didn't plan it ^^; Meaning I just provide the place, but I didn't arrange it, hahaha.

Visiting the Puppy Residence

So around the beginning of January, I asked Puppy52 aka Chun if she wants to participate in an April Fool's joke. After explaining my idea and exchanges of other ideas and brainstorms, she agreed to go with it. Of course since she loves her Taiga very much, it would be difficult for me to borrow Taiga, so I asked her if it's ok if I can drop by the house to take pictures of Taiga.

THE CONCEPT: I managed to convince Chun to sell her Taiga with a truckload of money.
THE MASTERMIND: Me, of course. Vewy, vewy evil!
THE THROWAWAY JOKE: Posting Taiga for sale, the day after I make a post of me acquiring her, for an exuberant amount.
THE TRICK: Posting it on April 1st in Japan Standard Time at 8:00 AM local time in Vancouver, Canada to make it more plausible.

Got $41,000 to Spare?

It's unfortunate to do this for the first post on the first day of the fourth month... But I have no space for Taiga in my room... So I have to let my new Taiga MDD go and I'm sure I can fetch good money for her. So if you have $41,000 (US dollars) here's your chance to own a custom MDD Taiga!  I will not take offers. It has to be $41,000 or higher (higher is definitely ok $_$).

Year of the Taiga

For a few years, since Chun created the custom Taiga Dollfie, I've been bugging her about dollnapping her ^^; But no more!
