BroConf + UtaPri 2000% (Part 1)

Tonight, I decided to rewatch (again) BroConf (Eps 1& 2) and UtaPri Maji Love 2000%.
When one rewatches anime, there are little details that one tends to pick up, or have not noticed upon previous watching. I thought that I would share my revelations (aka an excuse to fangirl all over again) regarding these two animes.

  • [BC] At the end of the OP sequence, Chi-chan holds a bouquet of flowers... exactly 13 of them! Can you match up which colour belongs to who? (Answer will be revealed at the end of the post)
  • Note to self: Must learn how to bake cakes to woo onii-chan's over.

Pumpkin's Palette: Ikemen!Wataru

Ever since Ysabella suggested the idea of Ikemen!Wataru (aka what Asahina Wataru [BroConf] would look like if he was older), I couldn't get the idea out of my head, and I ended up drawing what I think Wataru would grow up to look like.

My Debut!

OK, ok not exactly my real debut, since I used to have a personal blog, but 'tis my new grande debut into the Mbt team! I have to say I feel like a kid in a candy store - so many topics to cover~so many options~

Even though, I have signed myself down to be the resident noob cosplayer, I have the attention span of a sugar high ADD child and therefore will deviate all over the place depending on what strikes my particular taste of fancy of the week.

I bet Mbt is regretting his brash decision in recruiting me.

SO without further ado,

je presente moi!

Or... you know, moi with a pink wig and suitably copious amounts of filtering and makeup to cover my not-so-flawless skin and a doped out expression.
(Ahh instagram, what would I do without your Xpro II and Nashville filters...)

Don't worry, I'll be covering stuff like this in my soon-to-be-realized makeup tutorials which are really the only thing I can really contribute to this page.

Anyhows I hope I don't bore out you peeps too much with my adventures in gaming and cosplay. See you in my next post!

Shingeki no Kyojin Boulder cosplay...

What exactly does cosplay mean? Does dressing up as anything that appears in an anime considered as cosplay?
Someone "cosplayed" as the boulder that Eren picked up to block the wall in Shingeki no Kyojin. Is this acceptable?

Pumpkin's Palette: Asahina Ukyo

The second son of the Asahina bro's, Asahina Ukyo.
Why is Ukyo so much harder to draw than Tsubaki? (lol)

An Open Letter to Handset Makers: Why Your Phone Is a Loser

If recently read the technology news, you definitely would have came across Nokia's latest release of the Noka Lumia 1020, a Windows Phone 8 device that features a 41MP camera. Not that you would want to buy a Windows Phone.

Anyway, Mike Elgan from Cult of Android decided to write a mock letter to handset manufacturers stating a few reasons why their phones are losers. This part especially sums up what is happening to the market share right now.
Samsung gets most of the market share and some of the profits. Apple gets most of the profits and some of the market share. But Samsung fears with justification that its lead is slipping away to lower-cost and more aggressive vendors. Apple’s momentum has slowed horribly with the onslaught of Android phones. 
The rest of you handset makers — let’s face it — are scrambling for crumbs on the floor.
Which is pretty sure if you take a good look at the current smartphone market. Most of it is dominated by Samsung's Android products whilst Apple is at number two.

You can read the full letter and more in the source link below.
