Renge’s Spring-Dance

Hello Folks! Took Renge out to check out how the warm spring weather is now melting the snow, forming nice little streams of melted snow. Quite neat to check out. She later did an encore of her dance before, but this time with the Miko outfit taken back from Fubuki.

– Rewarded with nice cloud formations.

Renge’s Winter Snowstorm ’13

Hello again folks! The snowstorm sure attacked Ottawa quickly and brutally with the heavy wet snow. One moment the roads were clear and the next you notice massive snowflakes adding to the inches of the snow. Nothing new, yet still impressive with each snowstorm. Many buses ended up getting stuck, one of which I spotted.

Renge Goes Skiing!

Hello fellow Busou Shinki fans and others! With Ottawa getting around 44 cm of snow two days & nights Renge wanted to go skiing in it. I mean, why not? Need to have some fun with the snow in one way or another.

– I quickly made Renge two snow skiis for her to use to explore the deep snow outdoors. Sadly, she is still missing her winter-wear.

Azunyan’s Icy Slip

Hello again. Thought I’d continue on quickly with where we left off from the Shinki snow pile-up. I placed Azunyan in a “lost” situation. Mother nature also decided to dump freezing rain while the wind constantly howled in a North-pole fashion on Tuesday night, basically Kitsune Wednesday with the timing.

Tulip Festival ’11 & Renge’s Sushi Appetite.

Went to the Tulip Festival again, this time for the international pavilion. I went there to see what was new and to see if I could get anything for my uh….demanding fox spirit – Renge. And I always keep forgetting that weekends keep bringing out all the tourists and locals. I could barely walk or even take proper images of tulips, Renge, the food, or see what is up for sale.  Was a nice hot day though, worth the trip to see the tent.

Tulip Festival ’11 – Renge

Spring sure is slow this year around. I mean, last year we had the hottest spring while this year we had the most delayed one. Global warming? Global climate change? If anything, nothing stays the same for long so patterns tend to change. Same could actually be said to the format of the Tulip Festival. I’ll go with a bit of a prologue and a recap while showing my lovely Renge twins as they curiously climb up tulips on a very nice cloudless windy day.

Renge’s Winter

Ah! It unexpectedly snowed overnight. I was simply expecting it to be extremely chilly with the freezing rain warning, nothing more. Though, without missing a beat, Renge took off to explore the new fresh snowfall that snuck it’s way onto Ottawa’s ground. I went to explore the scenery as well, as to show the second snow fall of the year.

Enjoy the images!

Shinki Benio’s Outdoor Adventure

To give Benio’s her deserved respect here is an article for her ^^.
After acquiring Benios, she wanted to explore the vast and foreign area around her. With Benio being my first ever Shinki I thought I’d also assist with showing off how she articulates and the like in an outdoor setting. Feel free to consider this as a part of a review if you want.

Enjoy the photo-shoot!
