I Want To Take an Anime and Manga Tour in Japan

OMG... I want to do this. (Maybe Next Year - I don't have Vacation Time left this year since I will be going to Peru this summer) Their next tour is in just a few weeks, and seems to only happen once a year, in March coinciding with the International Anime Festival AnimeJapan. https://japandeluxetours.com/japan/group/anime-japan-tours#anime3 Visiting Japan is my life long dream. (sadly, mostly just so I can go shopping for anime, game, and doll stuff lol. Although I do want to do the museums and cherry blossoms and hot springs and other cultural things too - though mostly, I'm just a big geeky nerd who loves anime and wants to go shopping - which is what this whole tour is designed for <3) It's not that much money (well OK it is, but it's cheaper than I expected honestly).

Countdown to Black Friday with New Deals Every Day on Amazon

Amazon just launched their Black Friday Pre-sale event. You can check back every day for new items at http://amazon.com/Black-Friday/... Already they are offering up some pretty sweet deals for geeks and gamers. I recommend bookmarking and checking back as often as possible. I'm hoping for a PS4 Bundle or Console to go on sale. I have enough already to purchase, but since it is that time of year, saving some money never hurts, and I've waited this long already to get myself the newest consoles, so might as well hang in there a few more weeks and see what happens! Last year, amazon had amazing black friday and cyber monday exclusive gaming bundles for all three major game systems including Xbone, PS4, and WiiU. This year the savings should be even greater since the technology continue

Top 10 Subscription Boxes for Geek Girls

Subscription boxes are taking over the internet. If you've never heard of such a thing, you must be living under a rock. The basic premise is you subscribe by paying a monthly fee and you get a box full of monthly goods delivered to your doorstep (or digitally in the case of a few subscription services out there). You don't get to choose the items inside, so it's like Christmas, or a birthday, opening a box and being surprised every month. How exciting! Of course, you run the risk of not liking what's inside either though so it's a gamble. They have boxes for everything from beauty products, to cat toys, dog treats, and yes, even anime and gamer and geeky boxes too. This post has been modified but not "updated" to introduce new boxes, or remove boxes which may no longer be available on th

Fairyland Minifee Celine ABJD Asian Balljointed Doll Review

Edit: Moved pics to a floating Div to make this post easier to read. EDIT again: turned off inline related posts for this post because they were again breaking this post and making it harder to read - sorry! Today I'm reviewing my Fairyland Celine Minifee in Normal Skin with Default Faceup from Fairyland. She has the Moe bodyline. I've had her now for about 1 year and ordered her during a period of time where Fairyland was experiencing a lot of delays in delivery time due to the popular nature of their sculpts, and high demand for their dolls. I don't know if their delivery time has improved any since then, but I would warn that you're in for a long wait because Fairyland is one of the most popular makers of these t...

Momijii Dolls – Cute Limited Edition Dolls With Notes Inside

Kokeshi dolls are traditional Japanese Wooden dolls that are often hand carved and painted. These dolls originated in the 1600s and were sold as souvenirs to traveling tourists who visited the Japanese Hotsprings. Fastforward 400 years later, and meet the Momijii Doll. These Kokeshi inspired figurines have taken the Kokeshi theme and turned it into a profitable online business by creating dozens of super rare limited edition dolls at affordable prices. What's more, these dolls make great gifts, because you can turn them upside down and remove a note, which you can personalize. This makes them great ideas for holidays, weddings, anniversaries, or graduations. Any special occasion, there's a doll to match that. Furthermore, each edition of dolls is very unique; fr...

Dollmore Model F Melissa Baul Review

  Edit to add: (cleaned up images by moving them to a floating div, making this easier to read. also nixed the old banner ads as we use a different platform now.) I also want to add that Kitty Blue in the Ohio ABJD meetup group helped me restring and hot-glue "suede" this doll a year or two ago which helped a lot of the problems I mention in this review. She also told me buying shoes, especially boots that go up the legs, would help add more stability. I own a dollmore model F Melissa Baul. She is from 2011, so there may be some small changes to new versions. My version has a custom face up that I ordered through Dollmore themselves. The default faceup is quite different. She came free with the same dark short wig and grey colored acrylic e...
