Today was finally the day the con would finally conclude. With that in mind, how do you think I spent a majority of my time in con? I waited in lines. Yep! For the past two years, I’ve done something different for each con that I go to. I would choose a certain number of guests that were coming to the con and present them with a small gift. One year, I gave a bottle of hand made paper stars to some of the guests. Another year, I gave bags…read more
Morning time. 8am. I look to my right. Meta’s nowhere to be seen. “Oh, that’s right. He woke up early to go to the Dollfie photoshoot with Ken.” It was perfect, honestly. With him absent from the room, I was able to prepare the cosplay I had kept a secret for a long time… D.Va in her Taeguki skin! After I had taken a shower, I started to put on the makeup that I had purchased from Target the day before. It didn’t take a while before I had realized…read more

The alarm goes off and I momentarily freak out. “Why’s the distance from the bed to the floor so much farther? Why did I leave the phone on the ground? Where the hell…read more

Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution. Ansel Adams I think one of the best things about getting into the toy photography hobby is getting to know more about others who are also involved in it! While we may share similar preferences on what we take a majority of our photos of, our perspective are all different! After getting to know more and more about each and every other toy photographer, I get a small idea of what their world looks…read more
To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. -Elliott Erwitt If there’s one thing that toy photography has done, it would be how it’s changed my perspective on everything around me. Suddenly everything that seemed so normal has transformed into something interesting. My front lawn is suddenly a plateau, the (terribly messy) garage is now a grungy alley, and a…read more
“What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing. You wouldn’t be an artist unless you wanted to share an experience, a thought.” -David Hockney Hey guys! It’s Balance again~ Sorry I’ve been gone for a while. Now I’m back with something new today! As you all know, I’m not the only one who’s got an interest in figures! I got my first start by slowly being (kind of) in the toy community on Instagram. As I…read more
[audio:http://space.yinyanganime.com/audio/BAF_Leah1.mp3] Today, I revive Balance and Friends! My first guest is Missy/Leah, and here we discuss about Little Busters! No worries, we refrained (no pun intended) from spoilers! Naturally, I used LB soundtracks for this session. So obviously these media belong to their respective owners. Without further ado, enjoy!
[audio:http://space.yinyanganime.com/audio/balanceandfriends-raze1.mp3] I was given the great opportunity to hold a session of Balance and Friends with Raze, the leader of UTW! It’s where I get most of my animes (including Sword Art Online). You should definitely check it out right now! He was very kind enough to give up some of his little free time that he had to join the show for a little~ What we ended up discussing about was how he formed UTW, why he continues to sub and what he plans to do in the future!…read more
[audio:http://space.yinyanganime.com/audio/balanceandfriends-bd2.mp3] For once, I have a Balance and Friends! segment that isn’t an introduction of another person. I initially wanted it to be a chat but I guess it would be better if I were to do something that is related to some anime. I’ll definitely have to rework the organization of conversations held with friends.
