[RIP] Paying Respects to Sparky

It’s around that time of the year where I’m once again mourning the death of my precious dog named Sparky. A “man’s best friend”, also a part of the family that I must post it while it’s still January 29th. I never did post up a proper mourning & respect posting of Sparky, yet shall do so now while I’m focused solely in remembering him.

– Sparkly resting in his usual spot. One of many.

[KanColle] Ringed Bismarck & A Gifted Package

Now it’s time for me to boast with how I ringed Bismarck! YATTA! After jumping onto the KanColle web game after seeing both Yuudachi as a Demon ship, and even Bismarck, on Pixiv art I just had to play. This also being before the KanColle anime appeared, yet the anime itself is what kept forcing me into the game a year ago, and I’m glad it did. So much fun! Bismarck level 99!

Happy (Belated) Canada Day ’16!

Heyo! A bit belated on my end because been having my ups and downs, as well as being busy. Can’t keep things nailed down to allow me post as I should, yet finally had Renge yelling at me to post up some Canada Day images, so I’ve done so. Also a little American touch with American Truck Sim for posting on July 4th.

– Happy Canada Day! If late, and on America day. Kohiru, Renge, & Materia hanging out.

Arcticu’s May ’16 Chime-in

Heyo! It’s been quite a long while trying to sort everything back out that I came to leave a quick mini-update for those that still care after seeing figure.fm die out. I’ve been insanely busy that I couldn’t really tend to anything Busou Shinki, Varakitsu, nor photoshoot related matters. Neither with meet-ups, and the like. Either that, or people just didn’t want to have fun so everything was more focused on games, game events, and KanColle itself.

– My lovely ‘new’ W900 in American Truck Simulator.

Frame Arms Girl – Materia Normal Version

Welcome back to a revived and alternate Busou Shinki line named ‘Frame Arms Girl’! I need to thank Kotobukiya for keeping it alive in one manner or another. I also, on a whim, also purchased this lovely ‘Materia’ in curiousity to see what the fuss was all about.

– Surprised at the size of the delivery & main box. Quite a nice simplistic box art that I love.

[Parfom] Yuudachi Kai Ni Figure

POI! Yuudachi finally managed to arrive at my naval base after a few months of delay, and a little while longer enroute from her base in Japan. She was a nice lovely gift gifted to me by a long-time Busou Shinki comrade from early summer. This Yuudachi is made by Phat & is a Parform figure.

– My lovely Yuudachi finally arriving from AmiAmi’s departure zone, and with a cute card to boot.

Ottawa Doll Show – Fall 2015

Heyo! I finally managed to jump into another ‘Doll Meet’ that fell into the ‘Ottawa Doll Show’ at Ottawa’s E&Y Center next to the airport. I was attempting to jump back into the Anime type meet-ups that this seemed appropriate.

(Heading off to the Doll Show at 8:30 am. Noted that there was a BMW + Merc’ show, along with a Skiing event.)

Happy Canadian Turkey Day!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians! Tried to grab some more ‘quick-shots’ for us to all enjoy, as with a nice surprise from a German game developer. Some nice quick news to enjoy.

Busou Shinki Oyster Cradling

Heyo! Just wanted to post up a ‘quickie’ dealing with Busou Shinki & Oysters. Both Renge & Kohiru holding up some neat oysters during a neat sale that were lovely. Also pardon the article title for I ran out of names.

– Renge & Kohiru both curious about some of the oysters I was ‘rewarded’ with & wanted. Neat features on the outside as with the taste within.

KanColle Admiration – July & August Admiral Log

Heyo! A much belated KanColle Admiral log posting that I now wanted to update my blog with. I was unable to play KanColle properly so I’m wanting to upload my log from the summer event to roughly the end of August. Basically ending with Jun’you’s special Kai Ni.

(Poi! Loving Yuudachi’s summer swimsuit wear that I wanted to jump back in to make note of her beauty. Love her festive wear. [July 31st, 2015])
