When I first saw the bax in Tagaytay, (and during the start of my vacation at that) I was screaming and taking pictures at the display at the front of Data Blitz. Yep, I looked like a total idiot who was taking pictures with a vita. At first, I said to myself that I would probably get this if the price didn't go higher than 2,000 php. But it did, and it was a bit disappointing.
The box cover:
I really love the art on the box. The only issue I had now was the fact that they didn't even offer a CD to go with the entire thing. It was just ACCESSORIES. I mean, yeah sure I'd love one of those, but the sticker for the PS3 and controllers are a let down. It would have been best to just be 'purely' accessories for the PS3. An actual controller with Miku in it perhaps. or anything on the lines of that would've made more sense.
A stand for your PS3 DUALSHOCK controller, Stickers for the PS3 Unit itself
Cord straps in the shapes of Vocaloid Headphones (Namely, Miku's, Rin's, Len's and Luka's)
A Hatsune Miku Figure that can be attached to the controller or the controller stand, A cleaning cloth with a Hatsune Miku illustration on it, and an original Hatsune Miku phone strap.
I've been playing the AC series for the while, and it's either my lack of proper sleep but I suddenly want to make a list of things I want to have this Holy Week.
Out of the entire series, there's the character and how his game had THREE parts, and thus the "Ezio Trilogy" as one would know if one has played Assassin's Creed. In any case, Ubisoft knows how to play the game and make the game. Hats off to you guys out there.
All the respective images belong to their owners, I do not own them nor am I claiming to own them.
The finished product of quite possibly one of my fastest yet weirdly hard costumes to make. Eucliwood Hellscythe has been a favorite of mine. She's powerful, and she doesn't really flaunt it. She's also a good singer!!
Spot the difference:
Can't you just feel how hard I tried to emote for this one? Can't you see how different the other picture is? I kid, it's not a lot of difference as I honestly did not want to go and do the 'imagined Eucliwood' inside of Aikawa's pretty delusional head.
I was hoping that at some point, I would fine another heroine as badass as her. Someone I can fully relate to once more. But it seems aside from financial stability, that wish also eludes me. Asuna Yuuki is still that one heroine and lead protagonist that has captured me.
My resourcefulness was once again, put to the test. I didn't have enough money to get the materials I wanted. So every bit of cloth counted. Even zips and buttons were repainted and re-attached from other pieces I could manage to scrap up.
The petticoat, ribbons, detachable collar were pretty easy to do. The issue I had was the top bodice. It was a tube like thing, that I didn't have any experience in making. But hey~ I pulled through after thinking of how to construct it. All that's missing is possibly the knee high socks, and the detachable sleeves. There's still a lot of time! So this one would definitely be really polished before I set it off for people to see. But in all, once again I learned something pretty handy.
From the construction, to the semi final finishing touches - it has been nothing but interesting.
I'm really not too good with these kinds of crafts as am only starting to get used to them. But I suppose these are fine. Though for the next few props of hers, I would be following the recommended items. As I would hope I would already have finances.
It's sudden, but honestly I've been thinking about it and she's seriously one of the badass characters that I wouldn't mind having a simplistic costume for. Although once again I would have to be battle proficient.
Her costume is definitely easy, I already have contact lenses for her. All that's left is a proper wig and some of the cloth and flower materials. (TIP: Do not use synthetic flowers from stores to use as your headdress in costumes. It never looks good)
Progress thus far:
These were pretty easy to make and fix. And as of now, I also already have the pauldron like things on her skirt. (But will not be using it for now) In any case, my issues in the crafting lie in her subtle but really round chest plate.
The Backup Plan
Plot, Animation, Soundtrack
It's interesting, this season has been filled with a recurring theme of childhood delusions and this one was a welcome break. It was rather well written in my opinion and the way the characters interact are really interesting. The animation is bright and cute though the soundtrack is nothing noteworthy it's also not so bad.
Their portrayal of something nearly 'slice of life' is quite decent. It doesn't come of as over the top, but it does contain a lot of fan service shots.
Aside from putting in a food review in this section, I currently have no means to create or make costumes,
I shall now delve into the deep mystery called "Love"
I hope they make sense and in some ways are helpful! I shall, from time to time give out tips like these:
