Delays; Hatsune Miku Crossing

Mike Expo Hatsune Miku Crossing

No one likes delays. Especially me. Fall 2014 post was supposed to go up around the time of this post, but other complications arose. Thus, I bring to you a photo from the Los Angeles Hatsune Miku Expo from last year instead. This was actually the very first photo I took that day as dozens of us waited on the outside perimeter of Los Angeles Center Studios for the Miku Expo Halloween Party to open. I spotted a Hatsune Miku cosplayer from a distance as she crossed the street among casual pedestrians. Someone thought this looked like a tumblr photo. Perhaps I should open a tumblr. Hmm..


Random Desk Series: Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 + HMO Hatsune Miku!

Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 + HMO Hatsune Miku (4 of 4)

I decided to switch keyboards out recently in favor of something more lightweight, compact, and functional to my needs as a blogger/photographer nowadays. Come check out what Logitech had me sold on, as well as why Hatsune Miku is also as thrilled as I am to be posing next to it.

Random Desk Series: Hatsune Miku Absolute HMO Edition Nendoroid

GSC's HMO Hatsune Miku Nendoroid

Not quite the Mikatan of Good Smile Company, but it sure is nice to be inspired. This week’s ‘random desk series’ showcases my Hatsune Miku Absolute HMO Edition Nendoroid in full percussion function on top of my desk at work. Perhaps the most fitting accessory would be her headphones that burst open to the sight of some computer cable connections. Now if she can only charge my laptop!

It’s only a matter of days before the Cheerful Japan! Hatsune Miku arrives at my doorstep, so this is a nice little lead-in to the delivery. As far as Hatsune Miku Orchestra itself, shame on me for not having had a chance to listen to it yet. But wouldn’t it be great if Crypton hosted a followup to this year’s U.S. Mikunopolis concert with a HMO model of her for the audience? I’d approve in a heartbeat.

About ‘Random Desk Series’ – a work in progress, like many other things in my mind for the blog and my photography. It’s more or less a continuation of the Haruhi Disappearance post earlier this year, and a nice little experiment to keep my figure collection updated with new photos to share with others. Who knows, Cheerful Japan! Miku could be next!

Anime Expo 2011 [Preview]: Days 1 and 2

Still working through photos from day 3 and 4 in between the full-time job and settling back into my place (and life in general). So for the mean time, here are ‘preview’ links to the flickr pages that contain my photos from days 1 and 2!

Starting with day 1, we have this photo of the lovely ladies of the hit Japanese band, Kalafina, gracing the red carpet leading into the Los Angeles Convention center just before opening ceremonies. Their most popular single has to be “Magia”, which was popularized as the ending theme song to the also popular anime series, Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I didn’t get a chance to see their sold-out concert or attend their panel, but I heard they had a fantastic performance.

Day 1 photos here.
