After what seemed like an eternity, been really-relly tied up for the past couple of weeks, continuing my Otakon 2010 redux.
My second venture to Baltimore for the largest anime convention on East coast. Was waiting for it, and unlike last tear booked my ticket about two month in advance, thus sparing myself from 2 and a half hours queuing under the blazing sun.
This time just walked into the main entrance and grabbed that badge.
And so it went, three days non-stop fun.
Like I was mentioning in my older posts I’m very much into photography. Not professional at all, but rather just for fun.
Enjoy… Otacon 2010 from the inside of the iron shell.
Take G. A. Romero dead\undead\living universe mix it with a hefty portion of high school romance, add a generous amount of hardcore action, half a pint of raw human blood, a spoonful of pantsu and oppai, a tidbit of high school life, sprinkle it all with ecchi scenes and you have a “Gakuen Mokushiroku: High School of the Dead” – a new anime release from famous studio Mad House.
Well, it’s been quite a while since I posted something substantial in my blog, been quite wrapped up in stuff lately. But, nevertheless…
Against all odds I successfully finished my first fully painted Gundam. RX-78/C.A. it is. Can`t say it turned out great, but you know the proverb: “Things don’t work the first time”, and they certainly did not. My first and major mistake was not to primer the kit and spray acrylic paint straight on the plastic, to say the least, it was a disaster. Paint scraped off real easy, leaving bare plastic underneath. With a twitch of a thumbnail I`ve been left with a ruined part. Read an article that suggested to leave acrylic paint to dry for at least a weak. A weak! That statement startled me.
Wrapped up the kit with lots of clear coat, which seems to strengthen the paint, preventing it from scraping off. On my next kit – Zaku Minelayer I used plain Rust-Oleum automotive plastic primer, which worked out perfectly, stinks like hell, though. It coats a little bit thick, I might say, but acceptable.
RX-78 before painting, and after.
For quite some time, in the depths of secret labs of Eroge Progect an ero-game development rushes full steam ahead with the release of a demo version.
Observe, the game’s intro:

I’ve been a frequent guest on iichan.ru, and been following the development of this fan eroge, we shall see how it’ll turn out to be. God speed ahead.
Так держать, камрады!
HLJ – Hobby Link Japan, that is. One of my favorite online anime-related merchandise store had a Pre-Christmas sale and free shipping offer, certainly I could not miss on this one. It’s a pity that there weren’t any interesting figures on sale, but instead I got few other goodies to fill my shelves with.
