My Plushies

Ever since I was a little kid, I've always loved plushies. Teddy bears, puppets, stuffed animals, you name it! I would give them names, talk to them and... Uh... Make them talk to me... I'm a very imaginative kid, to put it lightly.

Plushies are also one of the most essential things in the otaku world. Many would kill to have these cute, soft, huggable versions of their favourite characters. Myself included... Okay, I probably wouldn't kill, but you know what I mean. Here, I'll show you some of my favourite (and ones that I was able to carry to this one spot from my bed) plushies.
Luka and MEIKO! It's nice to see MEIKO get plushified before Luka... But I definitely need a MEIKO figma and Nendoroid to complete the collection! Come on Max Factory and GSC... I'm waiting for my MEIKOs!

Apparently it's Yui's birthday on November 27th ^^; Oops! But I did take this picture on the 27th... Here she is as a part of the Bonkler group including Ayumu "Osaka" Kasuga and Fuko "Hitode Desu" Ibuki.

Here are some of the smaller ones (from left to right): Grunty (Puchiguso), Puchiko, Pyocola Analogue III, Polar Bear Rei, Kireihana, the dog from Harvest Moon, Winry Rockbell, Rafra and Yumi.

Puchiko is my favourite! She's definitely the cutest! Hokke-Mirin, the cat in her arm is a separate purchase. She is somewhat my conscience. She's almost like her anime rendition where she's got a somewhat mean streak, but she's like my voice of reason, like telling me to sleep when it's already 4:30 am... She is one of my favourites, so she's somewhat worn out, specifically her left eye... I wish there's a way to fix that =/

Kireihana is one of my favourite Pokemon and probably one of the first anime-related plushie I ever bought. I couldn't resist how cute she looks! The Harvest Moon dog is one of my newer plushies. I got that one when I bought Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life for the Game Boy Advance.

This is Rafra, a ferret from Infinite Ryvius. I watched that show by accident when I was trying to watch Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu but copied the wrong file instead... However, I did enjoy the first 2 episodes enough that I bought the DVD box from Bandai which had this Rafra plushie included.

I still haven't opened this Rei yet... Her head's a bit too big to put anywhere probably ^^;

So why am I posting my plushies? Well that's because I'm incorporating my plushies into The Melancholy of Saber Lily 4koma :P This was planned for a while in my head as a continuation of Saber Lily and Mikuru arc. I apologize for some of the quality of the photos... I had bad lighting for some of the photos...

Hmm... What is Saber Lily saying that Mikuru is covering up by her yelling? And no, I'm not going to explain why Mikuru has a giant co... ferret for a ride.

Umm... Yeah, just to explain, that's supposed to be me who's suggesting the dolphin ride ^^; I suppose if you don't know what the dolphin is about... It's an inside joke at where we replace a certain appendage with the word "dolphin", lol.

These dolphin plushies are bought from Daiso at $2 each. I was only going to get one, but I liked both colours too much ^_^ They don't sell them anymore at the local Daiso, so I'm glad i got them.

This was the fastest title I ever came up with! I immediately laughed at "Grunty Style" considering what's happening in the comic! This has been happening in my mind over and over. Finally glad to finally put it down on file. Yumi's position of her hands just look perfect for this ^^; "Buhi" is the noise that a Grunty makes. I used to play .hack where they make this sound after every sentence they say. And yes, Grunties speak...

Here's another unopened plushie... But what kind of plushie is it?? :3 Whatever it is... It will be in the future 4koma ;)

That's it... Now close the door! I'm gonna be waxing the dolphin...

Am attracted by her Sheryl cosplays.. real good!!
[Macross Frontier-Medley] it does look as if real sheryl is recording in studio..awesome-ness
and of course, her crossplays are ..hawt too!~ *points rokudo Mukuro
Other than that, she's a superb photographer too! Her landscape shots are pretty!! ahh~


Ryea: What is COSPLAY to you?
Bringing something fictional to reality.

Ryea: When do you first started to cosplay?

Ryea: How many characters have you cosplayed so far ?
I don't count them.

Ryea: Which is your favorite character that you've cosplayed?
Tough question! Hijikata Toshiro from Gintama if I have to choose.

Ryea: Which is your first character?
Sailor Pluto

Ryea: Which characters is in your future cosplay list?
More Sheryl Nome because I love her costumes!(*≧▽≦)

Ryea: Do you make your own costume & props ?
Yes. Most of my props are made by a good friend.

Ryea: What is your favorite part when cosplay?
When I looked into the dressing mirror after putting on the wig, makeup and costume.

Ryea: Any good/funny/memorable experience when you cosplay?
Taking pictures with many cute children when I am cosplaying as Sheryl Nome. I guess all little girls want to be a pop star when they grow up!(^▽^)

Ryea: How and what have you think you've improved from since you started cosplay?
Thicker makeup now haha (`∇´)

Ryea: Do you salute/idolize any cosplayer? Who?
I admire many people for their dedication to the art.

Ryea: Any tips to share?
CosPLAY. Never take out the play. If it isn't fun, don't do it.

What do you think the basic requirement a cosplayer should have?

I don't believe in this if you take cosplay as a hobby.

and 3 random questions :

1) Do you prefer more in crossplaying? *Alto is real hawt!!
I don't have a preference actually. It all boils down to if I like the character and his/her design.

2) How long does it take for Myoubi's makeup? *it's really epic eyelashes just like the manga
I took quite awhile to achieve that!

3) Do you like photography too? The landscape shot is very nice *thumbsupupup
I love taking pictures of beautiful things!

And lastly, what do you think about Let's Cosplay~?
Great site! Hope to see more cosplay photos on your site ヾ(@^∇^@)ノ

Thanks so much LithiumFl0wer !!~

My Little Sister Can't be the Rozen Queen

I don't mean Kirino from OreImo by the way... I refer my Azonyan as my little sister these days ^_^ This is Azusa's Aria!

Here she is relaxing while I show her the first season of Aria. That chair is very comfortable, even if she's only sitting on the armrest.

Ah Aika... You're so cool and beautiful!
Azunyan: I think you're obsessed onii-chan...

Azunyan is quite absorbed while watching Aria... Like brother, like sister :)

Here she moved forward to see better... Looks like she's getting excited over something...

Azunyan: Hazukashii serifu kinshi!
I guess I'm not the only one who likes Aika now ^_^

Azunyan: What is up with that marshmallow with almonds for eyebrows??

Azunyan: Aika, I want to be your friend too!
So after watching a couple of episodes I showed Azunyan her present that I couldn't give to her on her birthday...

Oh! Looks like she's happy with her present... I wonder what it is ;)

Azunyan: Aaah! My very own Himeya uniform! I can look like Aika now.
The uniform is a collaboration of Cospa and Azone, which makes it C-Zone. I got this from Mandarake by the way... I ordered it originally from HLJ, but they had it on back order for a while now. When I saw it cheaper at Mandarake, I went ahead to get it. Of course little did I know that the shipping cost as much as the item...
Azunyan: Okay, I'm going to change into this now... Don't peek oniichan...
Okay, I won't...

Maybe a little peek wouldn't hurt... *nosebleed*

Azunyan: Oniichan, since you're looking anyway, can you zip me up?
What me? Look? I don't know what you're talking about... But I'll zip you up.
Azunyan: Whatever you say, oniichan...

Ooooooh! It looks good on you!

Uh-oh... It looks like it's too big for you Azunyan...
Azunyan: ... Let's try the heels on, that might give me some height.

Ah no... The heels doesn't help much... I'm sorry Azunyan...
Azunyan: I guess... We can let oneesama try it out...
Oh? That's very generous of you.
Azunyan: It would be a waste if no one wears it......

Azunyan: Oneesama, I can't wear this, but I thought it might fit you better.
Saber: Ah, thank you Azunyan.

Like brother, like sister... Azunyan reminds me of Kuroko for some reason...

It fits Saber perfectly! She looks very pretty just wearing the dress.

Saber, you really look like you're working at Himeya.
Saber: Thank you! It feels good.
Azunyan: But oneesama your name doesn't even start with an 'A', you can't really be a part of Aria...
Saber: Umm... My true name is Arturia, by the way...
Uuuuuhhh... Azunyan, what are you doing?
Azunyan: KINSHI!

Azunyan: I'm sorry oneesama... But I will be the Rozen Queen! Now oniichan, switch my head with hers...
Huh!? Was that your plan all along??
Who knew underneath that smile lies a psy... Oniichan, what are you saying about me? Aren't you going to switch my head with oneesama? Uuuhh... Azunyan, you can't be talking here... This is the part where I write outside the storylin...

Oniichan, do you see this knife in my hand? You do, don't you? Then do as you're told! -- Why do all my stories have fourth wall breaking?

Azunyan: Ta-da! It fits me perfectly!
That's because it's not your body...

Azunyan: What was that?

The shoes and accessories are very accurate, but the yellow part falls off often. The black part isn't supposed to be a sock, but since Saber's feet are so small, it looks like a pair of socks.

The hat doesn't fit her at all... Looks a bit different than the one in the anime, but  it's still a nice touch. I may have to pin it or something if I want to bring Azunyan along.

The hat isn't backwards. The logo is meant to be in the back.

This is for the Aria fans... A reference to a chapter in the Aqua manga where Aika first became a single and was showing off to Akari ^_^

Hmm... What's this last pose for I wonder? Does it look familiar? Below is the reference picture.

Disclaimer: No dolls were harmed in the making of this story... Saber is sitting safely with her head attached to her body. Azunyan is just acting for the sake of my storyline... I'm not writing this under duress. She is not pointing a knife at me to write this par..........
