This is my new camera. A Sony Cybershot DSC-W170 10.1 megapixels, 5x optical zoom, none of that digital crap lol. 28mm wide angle lens, super steady shot(which I totally need…) and other bits n bobs, smile shutter, face detection.


This is my old camera. Konica Digital Revio KD-400Z 4.0 Megapixels 8 to 24 mm lens. Not sure what else… its not technically mine, I just took it to Uni with me, tis a family camera lol.

My Figure Set up – before uni moving… :sob:

September 21, 2008

This is what the top of my wardrobe looked like before I had to pack some figures away for transport. (Some being 4, Corti, Chie, Lucy and Haruhi)

This was after I moved alot of my mini figs to make room for the new gals, Bianca and Serio, Shion is down next to my laptop, along with the Strarf the Devil Type Busou Shinki.(who I will get round to posting about soon… I promise… I got 3 more on saturday aswell lol…. so cute….)

Just a pic I took while fiddling with camera settings, still haven’t got it fully worked out… I know… it’s sad… and I should be ashamed lol. Isn’t Koko lovely though?!!? She’s one of the figures I saw on one of Danny-san’s event photoshoots, and I knew I wanted her, that pose, the face, the hair! I loved her…(just realised I do have another shy-looking figure other than Serio lol…. I’ll change what I wrote…) I might do a little review thing of Koko, when I get her returned to me at uni, (am only allowed to bring limited figures to begin with… 4…:sob: but I’m bringing my Nendo Miku, Figma Haruhi and all 4 Busou Shinki’s too lol, and my Lucky Star Puchi Nendo’s. You can fit alot in the dead space in figure boxes. :icchan grin:

Serio HMX-13 Figure – Photo-Review

September 20, 2008

This is the third pvc figure I bought on tuesday. A character from the original To Heart series, Serio, or Serio HMX-13 being her full name. She stands at almost 20cm(8 inches). She’s sporting the same uniform as one of my favourite girls, Chie Yoshioka, from To Heart 2, and TH2AD. The colours are a bit different, but there is a considerable gap in time when the two figures were made. 2005 vs 2007, there will be some obvious difference. The older figures I have seem more basic in the facial department, but the clothing is still well sculpted, hair is usually a tad chunky though.

She’s also carrying a bag like Chie. Different kind of bag, and in a different pose, which is good, too much similarity is boring. The hair seems quite shiney in this pic, but the lighting makes it look worse than it is. It’s about the same as the Kotobukiya Konomi Yuzuhara from To Heart 2. Although theres only months in between the two figures being made, Konomi just seems superior in build, facially it looks better, the eyes are better and it’s just cute all round. This may be due to the character designs of To Heart looking significantly different to the character designs of To Heart 2 though.

The colours of the figure are fairly plain, but well painted, so it’s all good. Her skirt is gently wafting as if there were a light breeze, which is also nice, better than just a static figure any day. Even if the pose is static, just standing, wafting clothing can make a figure so much better. The paintwork stands up, even now, 3 years after its making, the only bit which is below par is the bag, would have been nice if they’d got that spot on too, since the clothing doesnt let it down. Some nice skin shading on the legs and nice shading on the clothes too. The yellow is alot brighter than Chie’s sweater, although the HLJ pic doesnt show it. Her pose is cute, and reserved, kinda shy, I didn’t have any shy-looking figures before this. And it’s intresting that every To Heart figure I own is holding a bag, even Tomoko Hoshino!! (I love the ribs on her sweater!! Bagged her a few expo’s back for just £6!!!) Once I get Multi and Akari it will ruin my bag-holding run, but thats fine lol, was a total fluke after all. And I can’t help but notice how the price of figures have risen in the past few years. 3400, 3800 yen these To Heart figures cost back in 2005 at time of release. And how we’re paying over 5000 yen for figures of the same standards in alot of cases? Seems weird….

Anyways, I’m moving into my uni accomodation tomorrow, I think I’ll get the net connected without much hassle, but we’ll have to see… I’ll try and set some articles to get published on a timer… I think you can do that… I’ll have a go anyways lol.

Desk Arrangement

August 14, 2008

This is currently what my desk looks like. Hardly a desk, more a display…. You might think that I have left hardly any room to move the mouse, but I manage well enough. lol. Click for a bigger pic if you wanna closer look at some of the figures.

I have now officially run out of room for figures… I would have to move most of the mini figures off my tall boy(the wardrobe thing on the left of my desk) to make more room….. and I don’t wanna…. but I’m going to Uni soon… so I’ll have even less room…. and transporting them will be a faff…. but I have the boxes for quite a few of the ones I’m taking. Thats another problem…. how the hell do I decide who to take???!!! I know there are at least 7 I feel that I **must** bring with me… but I feel bad leaving the others… and I’ll be away from them for so long…. and god knows what my parents will do to my room while I’m gone…. if they break ANY of them… they will be forced to buy new ones, and it won’t be easy, considering lots of my figures are discontinued….

And a quick pic of my darling cat! I’ll miss her so much when I’m at Uni….
