Our house is getting painted and everything is a mess right now. I have new ideas and new props for next toy photography project but I couldn’t get the best time and place to start. I tried to shoot outdoor but failed due to excessive heat this summer.
I feel bad with my figures exposed to sunlight. So I need to reschedule and plan a different time of day. Unfortunately, late afternoon is the best time but that’s the busiest time for me in our shop. I decided to wait til the house painting gets done and everything gets organized before I start to photograph figures again.
But one summer night, me and my brothers were playing with our flashlights. We were so bored because there was a power outage in the city. I took Saber Lion and Bootleg Ryuk out.
I just wanted a picture of Saber Lion with that high and almighty-angry face and knows nothing that he was being followed by Ryuk. Haha. You might be wondering why I have a bootleg nendoroid, it was my mistake as a noob collector couple of years ago. I bought it in one of the conventions I went to which I thought was the real deal.
Last Saturday, I went to Manila and checked out Ozinefest, an anime convention, to pick up new figures and accessories from local sellers. My Japanese Hobby provided an item pick up meeting near the event center so it was really convenient.
I bought my ticket for Ozinefest which I am hesitant at first but I have to meet another seller inside – and that was a bad idea. The event got too many people inside and I barely see what’s happening. It’s hard to move around with my bags with me (Err, I’m not really tall you know). We should have met outside the venue because there’s no network coverage inside the hall. After an hour, we finally reached each other’s mobile. Whew!
I told him to meet outside because I don’t want to go back there anymore. We finally met and got my order. He is an awesome miniature seller and I didn’t regret going through all this but I learned my lesson.
Here’s a picture of my new loot for this April.
Thanks Likiriki Store and My Japanese Hobby. 🙂
and here’s random photos when my best friends and I hang out in Bonifacio High Street, Global City last Sunday.
