Gothic should be dark, mysterious and probably outright scary, but that doesn’t always fit Victorique de Blois, I feel, so I wanted to depict her in a much more colorful setting, something that suits her colorful personality a bit more. Not only that, but these photos were made for someone’s birthday, and no one wants a gloomy birthday, so cheerful and over-saturated colors is a must, after all!
The japanese have their own unique take on what Maids are all about and have made a whole subculture and following of their own of this phenomenon. @Home Maid Cafe (http://www.cafe-athome.com/) started back on 2004 in Akihabara and definitely knows how to make a Master feel welcome. Read on for more about my visit to @Home Cafe with Shurikn Ibuki!
Here’s continuing with photos from my trip in Japan 2015, this time showing you Akihabara!
I actually didn’t go around Akihabara alone. I met up with Shurikn Ibuki, a fellow blogger who lives in Tokyo. I’ve been following him online for quite some time, so it seemed natural to ask him to meet up at Akihabara and guide me around the constantly changing Akihabara for an evening.
It’s been a while since my last post and the excuse is that I’ve been busy planning and making a trip to Japan last November. Those who follow my personal Google+ will know about this and also the reason behind the trip; My family and I went there to attend a Shinto-style wedding (It was different and very cool). With only 10 days in Japan the schedule was quite hectic and I didn’t have time to do many visits to “anime” places, but I was able to quickly go to Kyoto Animation’s (KyoAni) merchandise shop and Akihabara. Today I’ll show you KyoAni’s shop!
The biggest reason I actually watched The Idolm@ster: Cinderella Girls series was because of Rin Shibuya. She’s so cool and collected at most times (when she’s not on stage) which is why I wanted to show her in her natural setting; using public transportation.
Happy birthday, Figure.moe! And also happy Moe-day!
One year has passed today (10th of October) since I launched my anime figure photography and goods blog Figure.moe. To celebrate the occasion I put together this short video showing photos from all the posts I’ve released during the year. As an added bonus, of sorts, I’ve made this video in 4k resolution, highest resolution that most of these photos have ever been released as.
