It’s Silver Week in Japan and Mikuru decided that it’s a good time to go sightseeing — and it seems that she has set her sights on Korea!

Figure Photo Studio setup experiment

FlightNote: all photos in this post are linked to my flickr. Click on the images to see larger views

I am pretty much a frustrated photographer. I usually fail at taking decent photos (they end up mostly blurred, or just not good) and not having a camera of my own makes practice a bit difficult to do. Now that my brother has “permanently loaned” his old digital camera to me, I’ve been able to take more photos lately (although most of them are of Kagamiku). I know there are more people in the figure community who are more experienced and skilled than I am, so, if you can give any suggestions on how I can improve, please don’t hesitate to drop in a comment!

Figure Maintenance?

Kagami: Cleaning oneself isn't as easy as you think

Kagami: Cleaning oneself isn't as easy as you think

Being a newbie in figure collecting, one of the questions that always pops into my head is: how do people with collections of epic proportions (uber many figures) clean and maintain all of their figures ?

A Birthday Greeting

Birthday Party

My girls are helping me out in sending a birthday greeting to two of my friends who are celebrating their birthdays on the 10th and 11th of September. I want it to be a little more special and get 100 birthday wishes for them. Please do help by posting a comment!

Nagi’s Day Out

I had plans with a friend to go out to the movies last Wednesday — so I figured I should bring a daughter with me and kidnap borrow my brother’s camera and have fun with my daughter too! The source of this was because I was deeply inspired by Kodomut‘s awesome and F-able blog entries about his daily life with his Nendo daughters (and figma Drossel-sama ^^).

As for which nendo daughter to bring — I decided on Nagi, because I was pretty afraid that Yokoppai‘s ponytail might get broken by an unfortunate accident… and because my other nendo daughter has yet to be unsealed from her box.

First bus trip

I spent a good portion of my time that day trying to take photos of cute Nagi when I had the chance ^^ Continue reading ‘Nagi’s Day Out’

Kagamiku’s Arm Operation

Some of the people who have seen my tweets over at Twitter, or have viewed my blog before might have known what happened to my precious Kagamiku figma last week.

Thanks to some advice by fellow collector Yuuka Kazami and some blogs about figma repair — I decided to embark on my first figma repair operation… it wasn’t a fast one ><;

A package arrived…

A new package

Kagamiku wonders what's in the box

Last Thursday morning, (the same day as Kagamiku’s unfortunate accident :c) a package arrived in our store. It was a gift from a friend and I couldn’t contain my excitement the whole day. Then, when I got home that night, I hurriedly went ahead to open the package. Continue reading ‘A package arrived…’

Figma repair help please!

I was taking some photos of some of my new figures — including an epic figma — with Kagamiku — but in the middle of doing so, something tragic happened. ;A;

Poor Kagamiku's arm got broken! ;A;
