Culture Japan Night London 2014

Long time no see! Work has been so busy these past few months that I had stopped posting on here to focus on my job. I'm currently taking a break from TokyoToys to focus on other projects and co-found a new business. I've also taken up sewing and hope to start creating my own clothing and cosplay outfits soon! I'll also be able to focus on other hobbies and interests I've neglected due to lack of time such as studying other languages (starting off with French, German and Japan. I hope to add Vietnamese, Korean and Chinese later down the line ^_^), clearing my backlog of games, sketching, graphic design and 3D modelling. I used to teach myself a lot of these things when I was younger, back before studies piled up. So that's my focus for now. Ganbatte!

So today, I wanted to talk about an event I had attended recently in London; Culture Japan Night, an event best known for being hosted by Danny Choo for like minded fans to meet and hear of Danny's latest ventures, had finally returned to the UK on Wednesday 5th March 2014.

MCM London May 2013

Wow, it's been a while since my last blog post, sorry about that! ^_^"

These past few weeks have been pretty hectic, what with all the setup required for MCM and all. But now it's all over for another few months. Well, at least for one month anyway as I'll be off to Paris fo Japan Expo at the beginning of July! :D

I'll still try to post on here as much as I can but I'll mainly be posting over on Twitter and Facebook from now on. Be sure to Follow and Like to keep up to date! ^_^

 Yet again, I was so busy/tired from expo, I didn't get any decent pictures of my costumes for the weekend. But here's what I wore for Friday! A classic navy Sailor outfit!

Kotobukiya Marvel Bishoujo Mystique & Elektra

Today, I'll be showing off two figures I recently bought at the last few conventions I attended. Kotobukiya's Marvel Bishoujo Elektra & Mystique.

The figures are based off the artwork (shown on the front) drawn by the talented Shunya Yamashita. His artwork is very pin-up esque and always so beautiful.

MCM Birmingham and Hitomi Cosplay

Two weeks ago I attended MCM Birmingham. Held in the NEC, a big exhibition centre which I have previously visited to see the Gadget Show Live, MCM Brum, coupled with Memorabilia in the same hall, consisted mainly of various stalls selling anime, comic book and sci-fi goods.

In my last minute Dead or Alive 5 Hitomi cosplay. I was up the night before painting the purple lines onto the vest >_<

SoniComi Limited Edition

I recently used a proxy for the first time ever to buy some Sonico goodies off of the Nitroplus store. I used MioBoutiqueTokyo. Their service was great and shipping was fast. I'll be using them again. :3

And here we have the SoniComi Limited Edition.

 And here's all the goodies laid out. Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Presents, Sweeties, Saber & Sonico

Ah! It's been a while!

I've recently taken up ice skating and rollerblading, so I've been super busy practising and trying to get better!!

I don't have too much to share for the time being. I'm currently waiting for an additional shelf to be put up so I haven't received much in terms of figure loots lately, BUT I am waiting to receive a bunch of packages from Japan!! Eeee!

So Christmas has been and gone and I received a few, super awesome presents!
