HAPPY WORLD PHOTOGRAPHY DAY!! (Mako Mankanshoku Nendoroid Summer Colours Photoshoot)

Hey guys! Happy World Photography Day!

Mako Rainbow Stars_littlecloudcuriosity (1)

I didn’t even know until I checked Twitter but apparently there is a day for every thing now, thanks to social media. In honour of today I wanted to share with you guys a really fun photography shoot I did last month with my Kill La Kill Mako Mankanshoku Nendoroid figure. One of the reasons why I bought Mako was because she is such a fun and versatile character. You can literally set her up in any setting and her personality will instantly add its own charm to the atmosphere. In this shoot, I played around with lighting, props and tons of bright colours as inspired by summer sunshine. This was also the first time I used a full frame Nikon D750, a new camera that was passed over to me by my dad. I used the 24-120 mm Nikkor lens and it was really a trick trying to figure out the angles because the lens wouldn’t focus if I pushed the focal point too close. The only bit of editing done was with contrast and brightness. Overall I am quite pleased with these final shots and I hope you’ll enjoy scrolling through 🙂

MCM Birmingham Comicon 2014 HAUL!!!

MCM Comicon in Birmingham Day 2 (Casual Photography)

Here are the pictures from Day 2. Honestly, I liked these ones a lot more. I think there were more cosplayers on the second day and I wandered the big halls quite a bit to see which cosplayers were meeting up in groups… I really didn’t take that many pictures of myself because I was so busy running around getting footage for the vlog and checking out all the merch BUT I did get one memorable picture to commemorate my first convention as an official member of the press \^o^/ so I threw that picture in there too ;P

Part 1 of the pictures are here!

MCM Comicon in Birmingham Day 1 (Casual Photography)

MCM Birmingham Comicon Day 1 (94)I LOVED the venue that this con took place at and the cosplayers were really incredible. My only problem is that the exhibition rooms are half-lit by skylights and as the day wears on, the light gets progressively worse. There is artificial lighting to compensate but it usually comes off with a nasty yellow-orange wash that you really don’t want on your photos. Did quite a bit of photoshop work on this batch of pictures but kept it low-key and causal nonetheless.These pictures encompass not only the majority of cosplayers I bumped into but also contains some shots of the con itself.

Hey guys how are you all?

Today we’re back with another update. There’s been a crazy storm of new anime in the last two weeks because of all the new seasonal stuff coming out.

I haven’t exactly decided what I’m going to stick with this season and there’s so much I’m having trouble deciding. As per usual, here is a poll of the selections. Everything in the poll is everything I’ve watched (not necessarily posted first impressions). If you guys want me to check out a particular show or make sure I review one of your favourites, hit as many selections as you like and vote because I have changed my list of seasonal shows due to popular demand or lack thereof.

What I’m currently watching this season…

*Finishing from last season – Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

Coming soon with CuriousCloudy…

I will be going to ConBravo 2014 this year. Just on the Saturday though. Hopefully I can get some vlogging in and meet some other fun Youtubers. I’m also planning on going to FanExpo Canada 2014 in late August and covering the convention for all four days.

We haven’t done a HAUL in a while but one will be coming soon at the end of the month! As well, with my birthday coming up in August, hopefully I can do another Out of the Box feature with a NEW NENDOROID on its way here. If I have time I want to plan some seiyuu feature posts.

Random Things I’ve been up to…

– Reading Shadow’s Claim by Kresley Cole

– Reading the Latin version of the Hobbit

– Getting really addicted to sour gummy candies

–  I recently finished a Korean drama called The Heirs. Starting to watch Emergency Couple now.

Thank you guys so much for all your support and lovely comments on my channel thus far! I’m gonna keep doing my best with video editing and improve my vlogs so I hope you’ll enjoy everything coming soon!
