Clothes: 040213

When I went back to the family home in the weekend, I forgot to bring any non-work clothes so I was pretty much stuck with super frilly ones that I only wear occasionally these days. I forgot how much fun it is to dress in lolita-inspired attire since I started to dress more conservatively. I feel like a child again~ haha. Apparently the 2nd of February was Twin Tail Day in Japan so I decided to celebrate a day late.

Headband: $3.50 from Japan store
Blouse: $15 from Paper Bag Princess
Skirt: $10 from Trademe (IT WAS A STEAL!)

And today, I decided to keep going with the girly co-ordinates. I don't think the low twin tail hairstyle is too bad either. Might use it more often ^-^ Oh youth~! uhoo.

Sailor Jacket: Aliexpress
Frilly Shorts:
Blouse: Kmart
Bow: Japan store

I drew pictures today. I wanna get faster~
Drawing is more fun now that the pressure is off! I knew it was more a hobby thing for me. Sometimes I wish I has realised this sooner xD Of course I still enjoy it, but if I had to do it all the time for both work purpose and hobby purpose I would probably tire of it. Whereas more logical stuff like web design seems to drive me more in terms of productivity.

Yeah, I did the Graphic Design degree. But after some thought, I am truly more of a left brain thinker as opposed to the right brain thinker a designer is assumed to be. I like being creative and designing stuff, but I also like rules and I like knowing exactly how things are supposed to work. 

If only it was so easy with other things that I struggle with... the rule thing anyways;; Some aspects of life don't have a very defined set of rules to follow, because its too complicated and varied. Well, ganbarimasu! Will keep trying ^-^

Also read Death Note again, and damn I can't get over how evil Light becomes as series progresses. SO EVIL! It's interesting to read from a villain's standpoint though haha. I think that was what drew me to the series the first time I read it. There was no other story like it before~

Black Rock Shooter Nendoroid

After two years of sitting perfectly inside packaging (this seems to be a trend..), Black Rock Shooter Miku is finally free from the plastic!!

The Front 

...And the back

Japanese packages are so nice! They seem too good to throw away~ 
Even the food ones sometimes...with their endearing characters and all.

 Contents of the box. It consists of a DVD Movie and Nendoroid with different facial expressions, leg, arms, model stands and her weapons! (Bazooka and sword)

Close-up of all the different parts. This is the first time I ever owned a full size nendoroid, so I didn't realise how flexible they were with poses and facial expressions! It's pretty cool how all the parts are interchangable~ And if you had other nendoroids, you could also mix and match the outfits and hairstyles too, and go nuts with it hahaha.

Black Rock Shooter Miku Nendoroid in all her glory. So adorable! 
This is the default pose of how it is packaged in the box.

 I decided I would have her with the "girl with attitude" face on my shelf though ^u^
"Come at me, bro!"

It's really fun filling up my shelf with cute things >u<
The next one will probably be my tiny Inazuma Eleven figurines uhooo~!

And random thing I saw yesterday...
 Someone left a whole pizza outside McDonalds, and all the pigeons were scrambling around it for a giant feast. Oh man xD It can be fun watching birds sometimes ...
