[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.
