4 Years with SHINee [Kpop]

So it's SHINee's 4th year since debut. I don't have anything prepared just a simple graphic and a few words so this won't be going under a read more.

SHINee are a group that mean a lot to me. Their members are inspiring, heart-warming, caring & brilliant people. They all have their strengths and their flaws. I'm grateful to know this group as they have brought me so many smiles and tears since I've known them & I can only hope they continue to SHINe brightly as five together for many more years to come. SHINee, Thank You

It's been too long [BJD]

Wow... So how long has it been since I posted here? I had contemplated making Kpop / Jpop related updates but then I was always so busy with school that I never got around to it and I felt as those the 'moment had passed' when I did think about going back to it... Regardless, I'm updating now.

Recently I met up with Clair and we had a mini-meet in Belfast. Unfortunately other members of our BJD group weren't able to meet with us and we're not able to meet with them this Sunday (terrible timing is terrible). Regardless, we decided to go ahead.

I took my camera with me but had no memory card as I had misplaced it earlier that week. Then as we settled down into Cafe Nero, I realised that my camera wasn't as fully charged as I had assumed. Silly me I know! Live and Learn! Haha. So I was very... reluctant to take a lot of picture. We had a lot of fun posing dollies and Clair got to meet Yuya for the first time while I got to meet her doll Jin for the first time. Also, after a long absence it was nice to have Chu back in my hands. I can't thank Clair enough for being so kind to babysit him for me while I was in the States. She's a saint!

We weren't so prepared for our meet in that, there wasn't a single thing for fixing wigs but we were mostly meeting up for ourselves firstly and then the dolls were a cheeky bonus. If you're averse to dolly wigs being messy and whatnot... well.. I did warn you ;D

Cosmic Child [LIFE?]

So I was reading through Immie/Clare's blog and she talked about all the reading she's been doing lately. So I thought I would talk a little about the books I've picked up recently, a little about them and what I thought of them and that'll be that. Nothing too long I would think haha. I've been buying a lot of books second hand because I love second hand shops. The books are always left with this intriguing, musky smell.

These are the books I've either read or I am currently reading at the moment bar 2 - 'The Fault in Our Stars' by John Green which I've actually given to a friend to read and my collection of Bachman Books which is under my pillow since I'm ploughing through it right now. I will be talking about these as well however. Onwards!

My All is in You [BJD]

Hello bloggers~ It has been far too long since I last blogged here. I did contemplate making a post about the new SPICA album I had gotten in the post but then was completely swamped with schoolwork. Another thing I hate about being so swamped with schoolwork is a lack of desire to be online and thus a lack of time to talk to the people online. However, my sleep schedule is better! I now sleep from about 10:30pm to 7am every night - which is a lot better than not sleeping at all! Due to this I am reluctant to spend long nights on the computer in fear that I mess up my progress. I like being on a proper schedule. I also have been reading a lot more.

Well that's not the reason why I'm posting this, I randomly decided to take a few shots of my darling Yuya. I was reading 'The Long Walk' by Richard Bachman (Stephen King) and just *zing* wanted to take some pictures of Yuya. I really want to take him into a different environment for pictures as well. So perhaps I will dress him up and taking him outside tomorrow for a mini shoot ^o^ The weather has been getting really nice here lately. Lovely and warm, if a tad windy. Nice picture taking weather.

However, while editing my pictures there wasn't a lot that I liked. A grand total of three! Hence why I want to get out there and take better pictures. Also. Happy March! Hard to believe we're already in our third month of the new year. I will be heading home on the 13th of May from the lovely Nebraska and thus I will be taking an overnight flight back home and will land on the 14th! I'm too excited for going home, as much as I love being in America. I can't wait to take all my memories and souvenirs back with me!

I’ve also made the decision that I will apply to teach English in S. Korea when I graduate. I think it’ll be better for me to go there instead of Japan. I still want to apply for Japan - keep my options open - but we’ll see~ Okay, enjoy the pictures of Yuya, I’ve rambled too much. He’s wearing a cute dino shirt he got which he adores since he’s obsessed with Dinosaurs. I need to get that boy more dinosaurs...

Random title from iTunes. Which was also the song played for his box opening haha~ Another wee random photostory of Yuya. I find these are a lot of fun to do with him and I think they're better than looking at a load of photographs - for now!

Wa~Ha~Ha! [BJD]

Strange title, I know. But when I think of Yuya, I think of Kanjani8 for some reason. Hmmm. Well his wig (and a new top) came in the mail finally! I was super excited to finally have him in his wig. It's a synthetic wig that I purchased from ebay. However, it sheds. A lot. Right now it's holding up but I'm worried about him developing bald spots in the future haha that would be pretty tragic for my little japanese schoolboy. He already gets bullied! I turned his photographs into a little adventure photostory aside from the one shown here....

Simply......... Yuya!!! [BJD]

POST ABOUT HIM ON ALL THE PLACES!! Finally updated my Flickr and then posted his box opening... video of fail... on DOA and AU so now it's the blogs turn. Time to update it. It's been a while and I promised a post every thursday. However, I'm wary of posting so much RL stuff here when it should be Kpop/Jpop & my BJD stuff. So I held back waiting until I had Yuya to post about.

White X'Mas [BJD]

IT SNOWED! IS SNOWING! WILL SNOW MORE! SNOW! -runs around flailing about the perfect white untouched snow that she can frolick in for many months to come- So. As ya'll know, I'm in Nebraska. And it'll get super cold here for winter. We're expected the snow to stay until March, when winter is long done. So whatever. I can live with that. Snow is awesome right? And well, it makes for pretty BJD related pictures. Which is awesome! Cause, this means I can take Ash outside. Which is sort of awesome although I'm still super wary of other people and their reactions to Ash. I've had my fair share of weird experiences with people - some awesomely positive and some scarringly negetive. It's a shame since... well... it's my hobby and it doesn't hurt other people but... sometimes they take it upon themselves to remark on it in a way that's hurtful.

ANYWAYS! I took him outside, along with my friend Anton, and took some pictures of him. I took over fifty pictures but I managed to skim this down to a nice 18. I'll post them all here, a few on Flickr and then cross post to Angel-Unlimited. The UK BJD forum I happen to be on. I might also add a few to the Omaha group as well. I feel bad posting so many pictures of Ash there but he's my only doll I have here... so far ;D

Seek the rest under the read more~

Babyface [BJD]

So Ash got a new hoodie recently (like he needs it) and it's gorgeous. I commissioned kuroi~carousel from DOA to make him one of her standard hoodies but with a fur trim. I finally got around to taking some pictures of him in it today so enjoy the selection under the read more. I'd just like to mention how wonderful kruoi~carousel is and her clothing is amazing quality. Simply wonderful.
