Christmas Doll Meet 2011

Merry Christmas everyone! I thought it would be perfect day for me to post the photos from the Christmas doll meet for this day... Plus I've been lazy and busy playing SW:TOR >.> Compared to last year's Christmas meet, there were a lot more people this year! So we had a much bigger room and a lot more dolls too! I wasn't going to post all the photos here this time to save some time, but I ended up with a lot anyway ^^;;

Festival of Lights 2011

In the winter, the Van Dusen Botanical Garden always have their annual Festival of Light where most of the garden is decorated with lights. This year the event runs from December 9th until January 2nd in the next year. It helps that it gets darker sooner these days in Vancouver. The sun has been setting around 4:30 pm these days. I didn't know it was such a popular event either... It was busy! The parking was full, inside and outside on the streets. I think this may also been the first time I've entered Van Dusen Garden in the years that I've been living here ^^;

Yuri Mania 39 - Featuring: Suenaga Mirai!

Gokigenyou! Welcome to another session of Yuri Mania! This post is to commemorate my 150th Weekly Lily on Figure.FM! Yes, I know Mirai figma came out a long time ago, but I haven't had much time nor the idea til now ^^; Hmm... Mirai Gundam is also here... And it's a Yuri Mania post... HMMMMMM... It's not what you think! Or maybe it is...

Tomoe Mami USB Flash Drive

Tiro... FINALE! Mami's final attack is one of the most powerful and dramatic sounding... Unfortunately it doesn't work all the time ^^;

(This post contains spoiler to Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I'm sure most of you know already where this is going or heard about this particular spoiler, so I'm giving this spoiler warning for nothing, really).

Yuri Mania 38

Gokigenyou! It's MEIKO's birthday so Luka and Miku congratulates MEIKO on her birthday ^^; Miku is actually not mine, but borrowed from Kaionlriu. Been meaning to take some photos of her but didn't get around to it til now.

The Birth[day] of MEIKO [DD]

Happy birthday MEIKO! I posted this on the 4th, but by now, it is already November 5th in Japan. She is now 7 years old. I liked her since 2008-09, so you could say I liked her since she was 4-5 years old... Wait, that makes me sound like a lolicon! But really she's made to be 21 years old or so! I first found her through "Sore ga Bokura no Justice" where she looks and sounds badass! I've almost cried a few times just watching this video accompanied by the song.

So just like her birthday last year, let's hear some new and old MEIKO songs :D

Monday, October 31, 2011


I've been meaning to make this post for a long time now. For some reason I'm fascinated by this two legged Miku face meme. It's creepy and scary, but I'm intrigued. Very unique creature that roams this land ^_^ So I figured it's appropriate for a Halloween post, yes? The pic above is my favourite Shiteyan'yo picture. Very deceiving!

Early Halloween Doll Meet

On October 16th, I went to an early Halloween BJD Meet, which is on my working day... But using creative timing, I was able to attend with no problem. The aim was to get our dolls in costume, but I didn't really have one for Helen... So I got her swimsuit and apron for sukumizugi meido ^^; Well it works for some cultural festival, right?? There are so many dolls and photos that this is probably the only paragraph of text I'll have and I'll mostly say nothing else, lol. Lots of new dolls and people too! Unfortunately I didn't have much time to get to know everyone... Let's get to it! There are over 70 photos altogether!

Canadian Autumn Starring Helen White

While it was still sunny out in the usual rainy Vancouver, I took the opportunity to go outside and take some photos. No, I don't usually do this, but I remember seeing very nice red leaves when I went out in the morning, so I figured I'll take a few more pics while I'm outside.

Aoi & Mari's BirthDDay

After almost a month of no posts, I've finally getting around to this post about a doll meet that happened almost a month ago... My last blog post was my blogday post, which happened to be when this meet occurred ^^; ANYHOO... The owner of Aoi and Mari Dollfie Dream, Galamirix, acquired the sisters on September 23, 2010 in Japan. Now that number has multiplied and one of them, Sakuya, even greeted us at the door when we came in...

Cospa Collection (as of Oct. 2011)

For my third blogday (third year anniversary of blogging), I was going to do a more complex project. Something to commemorate the third year... Unfortunately I've been so busy and tired that I forgotten it all until I realized that it was almost time. So I guess I'll forget it and finally do this Cospa collection post that I've been postponing for a while. The pic above is just a sample of the Cospa tags I've collected over the years. Unfortunately I've lost some already even though I tried to keep them all. I wonder what determines which shirts get the dark blue and the light blue tag...

I had to borrow the guest room (formerly my brother's room) to display the shirt. My room is just too damn packed. This should be almost all of them. I didn't include my Imagine Breaker gloves because I've misplaced them somewhere. Probably in the car in the glove compartment... Appropriate place :P There's a total of 38 T-shirts. The rest of the items consist of one hoodie, one windbreaker, one embroidered jacket, one cap, one cell phone pouch, one bag and two coin pouches (three if you count the one I'm using).

Burnaby and Deer Lake Park Meet

Seems like all my posts recently has been nothing but doll meets ^^;; Oh well, it's better than to just forget what happened, yes? There are still a few things I haven't posted yet and haven't found the time to edit and post yet! Oh well... Anyhoo, this meet happened last week on the 9th and 10th of September. Here's Mugi greeting you with a negi-shaped grass at a park beside the Burnaby Public Library near Metrotown.

Lynn Canyon Park Doll Adventure

There have been so many events and outing lately that I haven't got a chance to post them all immediately. Like this meet at Lynn Canyon Park happened two weeks ago ^^;;; I thought about just leaving it, but there would be very nice photos I won't be posting... So here are the late photos... Better late than never.

BlueStarBaby's Birthday Meet

I love alliteration! Indeed, this was BlueStarBaby having a meet to celebrate her birthday. Unfortunately I couldn't stay too long and just dropped by with snacks, a gift and a new Azone Pureneemo debut. Did you guess who my newest Azone girl was from my last post? There are a lot more Azones coming out too now. Most of them were Maruneko, but there was also an Azone/Volks hybrid on the far right of the picture, owned by the birthday girl ^^

Raising an Azone Army

I initiated a Hobby Search group order in the group I'm in on Facebook which was mostly for just a Pureneemo doll stand,but then it became an Azone army raising event!

Sea-to-Sky TakoLuka

Sea-to-Sky Highway is one of Vancouver's famous roads that goes from Vancouver to Whistler and even further into the mountains. I'm borrowing that name for this post, because it's pretty close to where TakoLuka has gone for this past two weeks ^^

ReaperofLeaves Birthday Sleepover

This past Friday was reaperofleaves' birthday and she held a sleepover party at her place. It was a bit far from where I was, so I guess it made sense to have a sleepover ^^ It took about 30-40 minutes drive without any stopovers or if the GPS doesn't lose its battery power... We came 3 hours late from the appointed time but were still the first ones to arrive XD I drove Galamirix and MysticaGrey along.

Cos & Effect 2011

What do you expect when you see the event called "Cos & Effect"? I was only expecting a one-day cosplay only event. Apparently I was mistaken. It was almost like a full convention minus the guests. A mini-con if you prefer. I thought it'd be a small event so I wasn't expecting a lot of cosplays, but I was wrong again! There were lots and lots of cosplays, some that I couldn't immortalize in a photo ^^; There were also some panels and vendors and artist alley! And it was a two-day event. Since I underestimated it I didn't take a day off for Sunday from work to go there. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted on the one day that I did go... I did regret missing that Swimsuit Competition panel -_- Hoping to find videos or photos of that event soon ^_^

Oh and I also wore the Kyuubey shirt from J-List... I didn't think it would get that much attention ^^; And I thought there would be other people who'd wear that shirt XD

Doll Summer Pool Party!

With me by myself in the house for almost a month, I thought it was a good idea to have some fun at home, so why not have a piece of summer doll meat, eh? Err... Well meetup with everyone and their dolls, that is. What I didn't expect was 20+ people coming over ^^;;; I was only thinking that maybe only 10-15 people, lol. Clearly I underestimated an Actual Vancouver Doll Meet! Ah also with this meet I've prepared a kiddie pool I bought real cheap from Toys R Us. We had quite some fun with it too ^^

This meet took place on August 6th and there are a TON of photos! Over 70 photos in total... So um, I'll stop typing now except for little tidbits here and there...

A Week in Vancouver (After a Week in L.A.)

Well, technically three weeks in Vancouver, and technically it wasn't really a week in L.A., but you get the gist of it... I was trying to post this a week after my AX trip, but turns out it was one of the busiest month for me thus far! It's like every weekend there was something going on. I was going nuts XD Anyhoo... To begin, the picture above was actually taken before my trip, but it's a good starter. I actually found a shop in Richmond where they were selling these "breast enhancer" cookies ^^;

Featherfall and Obitsu 11cm

A semi-completed group order from Featherfall prompted me to start working on my Nendoroid/Obitsu hybrid using the Obitsu 11cm body that I got from Anime Expo. So I'll start with the Obitsu body right after the jump. It's a naked Obitsu 11cm body, but no details really, so I don't know if you wanna call it NSFW :P Just a warning either way.

NERV HQ & Bday Presents

Here is the NERV HQ base that I got from Yakuri when I was in L.A. I first seen it on her blog and was impressed with it, but this time I have my own and assembled it. It's quite compact at first, but it opens up to a lot of things you see from the anime! Most impressive!

Cardcaptor Lightning Sabre

I've captured a few cards from Anime Expo. I'm not sure what kind of magic is in it if I call out their names... "Hooeeeeeeee!" Ah yea... I am a big fan of Cardcaptor Sakura after all, lol. Now where's my guardian animal, Keroberos, to explain what these cards do?

New Stuff from AX 2011

When I wanna be vague when someone asks me what I buy, I say, "stuff". And that's what I bought. Really! So much stuff, lol. I was trying to hold back. I didn't buy any figures either and some of them are freebies and signed stuff. The one up top is one of my favourite things that got signed ^o^

To Live and Eat in L.A.

Yeah, that's right, I took that title from a movie, To Live and Die in L.A. You got a problem with that? :P Anyhoo... This post is mostly photos from outside of Anime Expo which consists of scenery and food. That's right, food pictures, so if you're hungry, you may want to look at this post and lick the monitor...

Dolls of AX 2011

This year's Anime Expo had quite a significant difference... It's the first time I have two imouto attending with me ^^ This year I brought Helen and Mugi to Anime Expo. Because of this I seemed to have gotten more photos of dolls and Dollfie Dreams during AX ^^;

AX 2011: Consolidated Edition

For some reason I've been hearing the word "consolidate" a lot... So I'll use it too for my main Anime Expo post. Last year I wrote up everything in one post and it was looooonnngggg! This year there weren't as much events to describe, so maybe it'll be shorter if I do it in one post. There were some panels that I wasn't allowed to take pictures of and others that I was too lazy to take pictures of... So I'll have some photos that are not related while I'm telling my story... ^^;

Ah and that Gundam Unicorn is human-size. I thought it's a good start since the abbreviation on the shoulder spells out "Anime Expo" :P

Anime Expo 2011 Cosplay

Another Anime Expo is finished and somehow the easiest thing to sort out were the cosplay photos. I don't even know how to sort out the other ones yet... So anyway, don't mind my whining. For now here are the cosplay photos. It was another hot weekend in L.A. and I applaud each and everyone of these cosplayers (well except maybe people wearing skimpy outfits :P) for going out there to brave the hot summer in L.A.!

There are about 56 photos here, so you might be scrolling for a while ^^; In case I miss some names or labeled the cosplay by mistake, please let me know and I'll edit. Thanks! Cosplayers who see their photo here and want the original photos or maybe you don't want me to post it here, please email me and we can arrange something :)

Yuri Mania 37

Gokigenyou! Seems like tradition now that when I'm about to leave for a week to an anime convention (Anime Expo again this year), I leave with a yuri post here. Last year it was the dakimakura yuri and the year before it is the docking oppai mousepads. This year... Well, you'll see :P

June Doll Meet: Dressup Party

Very late... Most people have posted their photos right after the meet ^^; But I've been feeling lazy, so I've only posted it now, even though the meet was June 11th, hahaha. We first started with lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant where one of our comrade works. And then we moved on to another comrade's place nearby.

BIG Plushies

Lookit the size of that thing! Yep, for some reason I got myself a big grunty even though I have a small one already. I bought it years ago on impulse. I just couldn't resist getting him because he looked really cute for its size ^^; Now I don't have any room, lol.

Wednesday, June 8, 2011


Reality hits you hardest when death is involved... I hate facing it, but for the past two weeks I have to deal with it. When it happened, I couldn't believe it that it happen so soon... I thought there would be more time... I took everything for granted...

Thrice-Cooked Doll Meat

Err... That's "Doll Meet" btw... And it's thrice, because we met at three different locations for our meet. I started to head out from around 9 am to The Urban Tea Merchant in downtown Vancouver. I still don't like parking in downtown Vancouver ^^; Thanks to Elfinder to arrange this meet and make the reservation. Our main meet was for the tea :)

Secret Photos of Helen White

Well... Not so secret anymore is it? These photos were taken during the time I've kept Helen secret for four months. Only now I've compiled them. Though not all of them turned out well ^^; If you've been wondering why she's named Helen, it's because to me she had this ecchi smile on her face. So "H" + "Ellen" = "Helen" :3 The last name, "White" came from the whity type of Obitsu body, thus, "White". Now I wonder if Helen White will be googling her name and find this post, hahaha. Oh the second picture might be NSFW, too... LOL!!!

Saber's Fake Birthday Party

Friday the 13th, 2011... It's Saber's birthday, but I can't even post it properly since Blogger is down. Such misfortune... Anyway, Blogger is back up and now I can finally post about Saber's birthday party! I planned on just only making one 4koma but ended up with a couple more ideas XD Doesn't it make you curious what's going on above? :3

Edit: Not really Saber's birthday on May 13th unfortunately. I've been supplied with a fake date... orz. I apologize if I ever created some kind of confusion regarding this date. Her actual birthday is unknown... But since I already made it, let's just have fun with it!

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.

Thursday, April 14, 2011

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!

Birthday of Ayanami 2011

It's almost like an annual tradition now that every year I post up an Ayanami Rei related post on her birthday on March 30th. This year isn't as grand as last year's posts... I've only got two things to show you here ^^;

Post #201: The Making of Post #200

Making the stop motion version of The World God Only Knows opening is no easy task, but ever since I saw the first episode, I was touched. It's such a great episode and the rest of the show were great too! So I really wanted to do something for it.

Post #200

God Only Knows by ELISA

What I'm seeing......Is it real?
What I'm feeling......Is it real?
What I'm doing......Is it real?

There is no regrets, satisfy my curiosities
There is a new world waiting, explore my possibilities
There is no guarantee, just improve my abilities
(Go ahead with your own life - Is there any hope in your sight?)
There is a choice to make, setting the right priorities
(You will always be the one, so feel the power
And you should know the sun comes up - For you)

Azunyan: A Snow Nyan

So I woke up Saturday morning not even looking outside... Around 1 pm I finally took a look outside and it was blanketed in white! I was really ignorant ^^; But it gave me the opportunity since Azunyan has been wanting to go play in the snow...

Sunday, February 20, 2011


As you saw in Chun's post and my post from the maid cafe, I've acquired an Azone Yui! It was a hard sell actually. At the time when she was on sale, I didn't have any money. She is second-hand, did not have her original body and her guitar was not included. But I was able to ask for a lower, more reasonable price because of the missing details. I didn't mind as much because she would be a good pairing for my Azonyan XD The previous owner was willing to wait (plus she didn't have any other buyers) until I have enough to pay for Yui, which was way back in October 2010. I finally received Yui around the first couple of weeks of January ^^;
