Updates April 2016

Riiiighty ho, I think a post about updates so far should be in order:

  1. I’m hoping to write more about otome games in the future, maybe like more indepth reviews and walkthroughs. I’ve played mostly Voltage games, since it’s easily available on the IOS and I play these games on my ipad. I have also splurged a lot on Kissed by the Baddest Bidder (Soryu, Ota, Luke and Hishikura), Star Crossed Myth (Leon, Huedhaut, Dui, Scorpio and Ichthys), Enchanted in the Moonlight (Miyabi mostly…), Our Two Bedroom Story (Kaoru and Tsumugu), My Forged Wedding (Tamaki) and Be My Princess 2 (Kuon and Ivan).140917_01_01
  2. BJDs….. I’ve sold quite a lot of my doll crew because money issues simply happened and also because unfortunately they did not work out for the characters I had in mind and then I had financial problems which I think are kind of sorted now…I hope. I’ve sold namely the Iplehouse KIDs, Chris, Soom Aslan and a Soom Hyperon which I had for a brief time. At the moment I’m perfectly happy with the size of my dolly crew at the moment.
  3. Holidays. Usually I don’t plan any holidays but when I do plan holidays they’re quite big so this year I’m going to see SNSD in Taiwan for their Phantasia concert. I’ll be going with my sister because we are both MASSIVE SNSD FANS AND GOD WE MISSED OUT ON LIKE 50 CONCERTS THEY HELD IN KOREA, JAPAN, HONG KONG, SEOUL AND USA SINCE THEY CAME OUT SO THIS IS PROBABLY THEIR LAST CONCERT WE ARE DEFINITELY GOING TO SEE THIS EVEN IF I HAVE TO SELL A KIDNEY.snsd phantasia concert.jpg
  4. Final Fantasy 15. HOLY F*CK sorry for the swear but I have been waiting since 2006/2007 since they announced it as Final Fantasy Versus 13. I have been waiting almost 10 years for this. 10!!!!!!!!!!!!! And finally they have a release date even though they continuously released other games before this one. I’m a mix between very angry because of that but also very happy, especially when they released the demo. It’s strange. All I know so far is its a road trip and there’s a lot of bromance, exotic places, big monsters, creatures and epicness. Since they messed up Final Fantasy 13, Square Enix better not cock this one up. They have released Stand By Me as their theme song though. Plus, Kingdom Hearts 3 and a Final Fantasy 7 remake is also on the radar too. 3029193-2834762-ffxv_screenshot_duscae_230215_5_1424701305.jpg
  5. Pokemon Sun and Moon…..I remember when Pokemon came out, and when Pokemon Blue and Red came out and I’ve played the Pokemon series up to Pokemon X so far, but now I don’t really find myself enjoying Pokemon as I used to do. But it’s interesting to see how far they can go with Pokemon considering it’s been around for  so long!sun-moon-169-en
  6. KCON 2016. Kcon 2016 will have Mamamoo, and I have become a Radish (the name of their fans lol). I don’t think I’ll be able to go to Kcon this year. The concert is worth it but not the actual convention.9656.jpg

 

Hmm that’s all I got for now. So long folks!

Music of the Month

Well…it’s almost the end of February 2016. 2016!!! Jesus the years have flown past…. It seemed like only yesterday when I started this blog and I was writing about otome games and now it’s all about BJDs.

Anyway, this month’s music is definetely 4minute’s Hate. ENJOOOOY!

Iplehouse Grace and Cordelia arrive!

You may remember that Iplehouse held a Christmas event from December to January this year. Their event was something along the lines like spend $1000 get $100 off or spend $500 and get $25 off the order. I ordered an SID Grace in Normal Skin with the large bust option, general thigh and faceup C, and I had her on 3 months layaway. I also ordered a couple of clothes and a new pair of SID hands for Nana.

Along the way, before I finished paying my final layaway, I won an Iplehouse Cordelia off the website – she is real skin, with a faceup and mobility thigh. So after the 3 months passed, I had both dolls on their way and they arrived today!

I was actually more enthusiastic about Cordelia (sorry Grace). I have decided to call her Aerys (pronounced Aeris) and she is my first Iplehouse JID doll. I had liked Cordelia when she came out in the Carved Heritage series and when I missed out on her, I looked at her once more when Iplehouse re-released their CH dolls. I still didn’t buy her, however! When the auction came, I actually got her for more than $100 cheaper. NEAT!

So Cordelia came in a snazzy blue box with her COA and manual. Her faceup was very lovely:)

IMG_4327

Next, I saw all the clothes I’d ordered and so took a quick pic – I’ve still got my KIDs so I bought a new dress for Lonnie and the EID Signor R.set. Let’s just say……….I have never spent so much on clothes….and its not even for me, but a doll…….

IMG_4350

Oh well, I really don’t regret it considering how great The Boss looks with it on (I’ll see if I can show you guys pictures later).

I got 2 Iplehouse calendars so I’ve put one up on sale. It’s very nice ^^

Here is Grace’s box – it’s the new SID woman box which you may know about by now. It’s black with a mannequin-like SID woman on it. I actually preferred the old box design.

As mentioned before, I got Grace in NS, large bust, general type and with faceup C. I actually thought about getting Yur’s faceup and I asked Iplehouse about the custom faceup but decided to go with a Grace default one. I was torn between faceup A and C because they both looked so nice. Needless to say I’m not disappointed at all!

IMG_4376

I quite liked her blue eyes but decided to try my own to see what kind of look I could achieve with her. Again, I was not disappointed!

ff

Aside from that, I’ve dressed her in an Iplehouse dress and given her a wig (that definetely needs brushing) and I took her downstairs to show my sister. To my absolute horror she pointed out that her bust was huge and she looked like a porn star. Sigh.

So, a bit about why I chose Grace…her sculpt is PERFECT and fits a character of mine who is simply known as ‘The Baroness’. The Baroness is the wife of The Boss (or Roan, as he is not formally known as). A long time ago, he was injured in a fight and as he tried to escape from his pursuers, he broke into a large mansion and was found by The Baroness. She pitied him and took care of him, but he fell in love with her and when he had recovered fully, he fled the mansion. Now, the Baroness already had a fiance, but Roan came back for her, killed her fiance and took her away. Since then, he constantly showers her with exotic and luxurious gifts, but she neither reciprocates nor does she try to escape from him and she seems somewhat content being under his care…. So it’s a bit of a strange relationship… but that’s their story anyway.

Thanks for reading, and hope you enjoyed!

 

My Forged Wedding: Tamaki Kikushima Walkthrough (Super Happy Ending)

IMG_1881

Ooooh it’s been so long since I posted something about otome games. I decided to post a walkthrough for Super Happy Ending for Tamaki who recently became available for 5 chapters (ALL FOR FREE) along with Yamamoto but I chose Tamaki because Raaaawr he’s one hottie. Plus I played this game until 3am in the morning. That was how hooked I was. The last time I was hooked on something like mad was Pokemon Black/White (LOL).

PS Sorry it says Merry Christmas this is Tamaki’s special image. I couldn’t find anything else UWAGHH TT_TT Continue reading

Christmas Haul 2015!!!!

Hey everyone, hope you’ve all had a great Christmas and gotten everything you wanted! And I hope this year’s been good to you too. For me, it’s been rather rough hence my lack of posts and most of my focus was actually on my BJDs.

Anyway, I will be writing about my Christmas haul and what I got in the Christmas sales this year. The sales were really good and also really bad in the UK last year – big stores like Tesco, Asda etc held major sales such as half price TVs etc which led to people beating up other people just to get these massive savings. It was all over the news so this year said big stores have toned down their sales a bit. Even Amazon UK jumped on the bandwagon and unleashed their daily deals which had DVDs, video games and other stuff at half the price.

So let’s get started! Just to let you know I got everything mostly online and I look at a lot of designer brands for stuff.

IMG_3448

Starting with the boots… well, they’re Caterpillar boots. I got them for half price from Debenhams. They always host at least 10-15% off beauty and then up to 50% for womenswear, bags, menswear, electricals etc.

debenhams 20 per cent off

The DVDs are from Amazon and their ‘Lightning Deals’. They held these beginning of the Christmas week and I got Homeland Season 1-3, Scrubs Complete Series and Hannibal Complete Series for all more than half the price.

We’ll move onto the Aspinal of London box. That’s a small black purse in Saffiano which I got from my sister as a Christmas present but she did tell me she got it at a discount. I had always wanted the purse anyway so initially during the month of December, they had a 20% sale. On Boxing day that went to 50% off. But just to let you know stuff will be sold out so even if you wait it out, what you want could actually be sold out.

aspinal of london

Now we’ll move onto the makeup. I got a Givenchy mascara from Debenhams at 10% off, and the rest were from a website called Feel Unique. Feelunique was really good because they had loads of sales from up to 50% off and then if you google up Discount Codes you can actually get up to 20% off if you order up to £100. It’ll be £15 if you ordered £50. Nevertheless, pretty good savings huh? I managed to get a few Urban Decay stuff and more mascaras (I am a mascara fiend).

I got Fallout 4 from Game and already I am hooked. I’ve been playing it for a week now non-stop (because it’s so addictive), so I’m pretty glad I didn’t get it when it first got released and got it at a reduced price. I also got The Sims 4 but I forgot to take a picture. I’m glad I got that game at a bargain considering The SIms 4 is pretty boring compared to The Sims 3.

I also got a Superdry windcheater jacket. Not on the picture, I know, but I got one at 20% off. They also had 50% at Boxing Day but online everything was sold out by then or the size I wanted was no longer available.

superdry sale

Zara is usually a good shop for sales too so I nabbed myself a nice leather jacket and a fluffy jacket at less than £30.

Then there’s Mulberry…they held their sale on boxing day.

Personally I am not a big fan of Mulberry so I missed out.

I am also not a big fan of Gucci but I missed this and holy hell I am gutted.

IMG_3458

Selfridges had 20% off earlier on at end of November but I sat that one out because I couldn’t see anything I wanted. Harrods also had up to 30% off selected items and none really took my fancy.

selfridges

Then John Lewis had their clearance and price match. My sister and my mum got Samsung tablets at a really great price!!!

samsung e tablet

YSL also had a sale – which I didn’t know about and by then everything was mostly gone and even then I still couldn’t afford it *sobs*

Anyway I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Next year I’ll definitely know where to shop!!!

Time for some more Bad Romance

Faceup and Mako Eyes update!

I have 2 things to celebrate today. Firstly, The Boss’ head came back to me today. Second, my makoeyes order came too!! I sent The Boss’ head to a professional artist called ticuk for a faceup. He arrived today, yay! And he looks absolutely amazing!!!

I sent The Boss in a box I got and I was pleasantly surprised to see that Ticuk sent me it back. Yay, thank you so much, I can reuse it ^^ She also gave me a cute little gift and a card. Look!

IMG_2679IMG_2682

Here he is back on his body. HIS FACEUP IS AMAZING I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TICUK!!!!!

IMG_4598IMG_4601IMG_4638

The only person not happy with his arrival would be Reiji. They are arch enemies lol.

IMG_4730

Now onto my mako eyes ^^

I ordered 3 pairs. It’s so DAMN HARD to find a decent pair of dark brown eyes…. but even the dark brown I chose turned out to be more of a purple-y color.

IMG_2693IMG_2696

I’ll need to show them all on a doll later. For now I put one pair on Nana because she really needed a pair of dark brown eyes ^^ Yay now she matches Reiji:)

Dolly Updates End 2015

Hmm, so I haven’t posted for a while…and it ends up being about dolls. Why am I not surprised? For non-dolly fans out there, I’m sorry, I will post up something non-doll related soon (ie, Bad Romances) but for now please bear with me.

So I finally got my hands on a DLSR. It’s a canon EOS1200D and the results are pretty amazing. I took some very nice photos of Jin, Hikaru, Grimm and Reiji.

IMG_2466

Although I have to admit, Jin and Hikaru are the most photogenic haha. I omitted Nana because I’m still waiting for some stuff to come through the post for her so I’ll go snap happy when they arrive.

Jin is my Soom Romantic York. He’s a pretty buff guy being an Idealian 72. I also tried some fake tattoos on him so he’s my big buff tattoo-ed macho man.

Grimm’s been pretty consistent over the past couple of months he’s been with me. His nickname is Wil.e.coyote. I like this angle of my guys for some reason. Makes them look intuitive and thoughtful *3* (LMAO)

FullSizeRender (3)

Hikaru was next. He’s my Grail, an Iplehouse Claude. No matter what angle I take him from he’s so pretty. So very pretty.

I also took a photo of Reiji since I’ve neglected him quite a while. His nickname is Mr Pouty Lips.

I’ve rehomed Kanna. I loved her and I loved her sculpt but I ended up not doing much with her, which really made me sad. So now I’m on the hunt for a reshell sculpt. I had Asleep Eidolon in mind, namely Dolly and Snow. Then I moved onto Luts, either Luts Chloe or Ann.

I also had my eye out on Snow:

And here is Luts Chloe

And Luts Ann…

I was still in the middle of deciding what to do when Iplehouse threw their Christmas event at me. Just to let you know I have 5 of their dolls and their event didn’t seem too great to me. It’s get $25 off if you spend $500, then get $100 if you spend $1000. I feel quite finished with Iplehouse now. I looked at Migidoll and their event and 20% off their guy bodies seemed very generous.

Then I looked at Soom and this happened –

ARRGHHHHHHHH SOOM WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO MEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
