Midoricon 2015

Midoricon-Sylveon-Cosplay-1

We went to Midoricon over the weekend. This was Midoricon’s fourth year, as well as the fourth year Hans and I attended. This year we cosplayed as Inklings from Splatoon on Friday and part of Saturday and Pokemon for the Pokemon events on Saturday. I was Sylveon and Hans was Lucario again.

I didn’t bother making a whole new cosplay for this con this year. I adapted my Sylveon cosplay a bit to be more weather-appropriate. With as many layers as my Sylveon costume was, I didn’t want to overheat in September. I didn’t use the top layer of the costume, and attached the bow and tail to the under layer. I think it still looks cute this way!

Tasty Peach Studios: Lychee Meowchi Review and Comparison

Lychee Meowchi

I said in my review of the Disapproval Meowchi and Nomwhal that I would post a comparison of Tasty Peach Studios‘ different Meowchi plushies as soon as my Lychee Meowchi came in. It just arrived today!

The Lychee Meowchi is a darker shade of pink than its Strawberry counterpart. Whereas the Strawberry Meowchi is a softer, more subdued shade of pink, the Lychee Meowchi is a darker, more vibrant shade. The Lychee Meowchi has light pink in its ears instead of the normal white. It also has a different face, featuring an open mouth. All of the previous non-limited edition Meowchis have the same face as the Strawberry. The new summer Lychee and Mango varieties have unique new faces (the Mango has a winking face).

Tomodachi Life: Pug QR Code

Pug Tomodachi Life Mii QR dog

Here is the QR code for another Mii character I made for Tomodachi Life. This one is a random pug dog. I don’t know what made me what to make a pug, I just did. He is short, has a wrinkled face, and is wearing a dog suit. If you give him a different outfit, I bet he will look really disturbing looking.

His real name is Pug Pug and his nickname is Pug. He is just a pug. Invite him to your island. Give him a rent-a-dog ticket. The possibilities are endless!

Tomodachi Life: X-Men QR Codes – Jean Grey, Storm, and X-23

X-Men Ladies in Tomodachi Life

It’s been a while since I’ve shared any Miis for Tomodachi Life. Today I am sharing three X-Men Miis I made for the game. I have three of my favorite X-Men characters: Jean Grey, X-23, and Storm. I may add Emma Frost at some point in the future. (I don’t know why I didn’t make any male X-Men characters. I never even thought of it.)

Sailor Venus S.H. Figuarts Review

Sailor-Venus-Figuarts-Heavy-Metal-Snapseed

This review is on the Sailor Venus S.H.Figuarts figure. Sailor Venus has always been my favorite sailor scout, so of course I jumped at the chance to get this awesome figure of her.

She comes with her Sailor V mask, different interchangeable faces and hands, and Artemis the cat. She can be displayed in many different poses and her joints and the paint applications look great.

Tasty Peach Studios: Nomwhal and Disapproval Meowchi Plush

Nomwhal-and-Disapproval-Meowchi

I preordered the Nomwhal and Disapproval Meowchi from Tasty Peach Studios back in April, and they finally arrived in the mail yesterday!

Before I talk about the latest items I purchased from this company, I feel like I should give a bit of background. Tasty Peach Studios is a small company based in Indiana that sells items featuring cute Japanese-inspired characters. They offer a variety of plush toys, t-shirts, jewelry, and more. They sell their merchandise on their website and at various anime conventions. I’ve only purchased their plush toys, so I can’t comment on the rest of their adorable items, though I’m sure they’re just as awesome as the plush.

Haru-Chan Nendoroid Review

Haru-Chan-Nendoroid-on-Koi

I bought the Haru-Chan Nendoroid solely because of how adorable she is. She is apparently a mascot for Japan’s NHK General Newswatch 9 and stars in her own webcomic on NHK ONLINE called Haru-Chan’s Weather Trivia.

Haru-Chan is the goddess of spring and all of her accessories fit the theme. You can check out her website on NHK ONLINE here. It’s all in Japanese, but there is a video that explains some things in English… for some reason.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica Nendoroid Review

Puella Magi Madoka Magica Nendoroid

I bought the Nendoroid of Madoka in her magical girl outfit after finally watching the series. This Nendoroid is super cute and comes with plenty of accessories and extra pieces.

One of the best things about this figure is that she comes with Kyubey, who has two bodies to chose from. He can be posed sitting or hanging from Madoka’s arm. She also has three different faces, an extra set of hair bows with longer ribbons, and her bow and arrow.

Linkin Park Nendoroid Petit Nendoroid Set Review

Linkin Park Nendoroid set with stage

I saw the Linkin Park Nendoroid Petit set in the dealer room at a convention once, but they were too expensive there. Luckily, Hans got them for me for Christmas last year. They are an odd thing to have Nendoroids of, but Linkin Park is one of my favorite bands, so I had to have them!

The entire band is included in this Nendoroid Petit set. They all come with their respective instruments and accessories so you can pose them like they are in the middle of a show. For extra effect, you can listen to their albums while playing with them… err… I mean… posing them to display. Adults don’t play with figures. Don’t be silly… (Also, don’t mind my Little Mermaid Lego set in the background…)

Animal Crossing New Leaf Isabelle Nendoroid Review

Isabelle-ACNL-Nendoroid

I got the adorable Isabelle Nendoroid figure from Hans for my birthday last year. She is my first Nendoroid, but definitely not my last.

She comes with three different faces and a bunch of accessories. My favorite accessories are the music notes and my favorite face is the super happy one. She even has a little bell in her hair!

She is well-made, like all official Nenoroids. All of the pieces fit together perfectly and the paint looks great. I don’t have any complaints at all about this Isabelle figure. She is just too adorable!
