I’m In The Mood for Dancing

Hello again! Here we are again with a long overdue post… I think I have two more to do before I can focus on “newer” content! At least I’m posting more consistently, haha. Let’s talk about one of my favourite things– DDR! If you’re not familiar with the game or just know the basics, DDRCommunity has some pretty cool introductory information for everyone~

Kalu’s Krafting: The Beginning of Bemani Plushes

First off, I’d like to apologize for the title and how it might make you want some macky cheese. You can always come over and I’ll make you some as an apology. This has been a post that I’ve been putting off for so long… I think I’m hitting about a year and a half after the initial idea hit me! Whoops~

Anyway! Welcome to my very first “I made a thing” post! I know it won’t be my last and I’m really excited to get this moving. I ended up making these plushes for David as holiday/birthday gifts because money is a jerk and since I like making handmade things for people it made the most sense. I learned a lot from these “prototypes” and I can’t wait to make more and expand into other rhythm game themed plushes! I don’t have many photos of these first two projects due to a crummy phone (I think I was using an LG Volt at the time. Honestly I’m not even that satisfied with the Nexus 6 camera now!) and not really planning this out properly, so I’m cramming the IIDX single dao plush and the DDR dance pad ravioli plush into the same post. Let’s go!

Crossing Animals! Early August Adventures in Stardrop ✨

Hello and welcome to my first Animal Crossing post here at PB&tB! I dunno how much I can really say about it to be honest but I thought a cute photo dump would be enjoyable. Depending on how I feel after doing this one I might branch out and just talk about whatever other games I’m playing at the time~ I hope you all enjoy this as much as I’m sure I will. 💖 Please be sure to let me know how you feel about it!

Fighto Dayo! Love Live at Anime Boston 2016

Hey everyone! Hope you’re ready for a lighter post compared to all the other ones, haha. Today’s the day I finally get my photos of my LL!SIF@AB experience posted~ Hope you all enjoy. 😊

This was my first time to Anime Boston as well as the first time I’ve ever entered a rhythm game competition of any kind! I was shaking like a leaf before, during, and after my set… what a mess, haha. The event was one of those “you have to have an account to enter” set ups. So many people signed up that they had to randomly select players! Surprisingly David and I were picked. There were five rounds–each made up of 20 players and we played 4 at a time. We picked round two so we’d be able to make it to the DDR tournament that afternoon. The winner of each round won a special hoodie for the event and the top winner out of those five won a trip to Japan! That means… out of the 100 participants, we only really saw 5 winners. Talk about pressure.
