Cute Pokemon Food & Snacks!

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

Do you remember being little and having a bamillion choices of fruit snacks and stuff, and you HAD to get them in your favorite cartoon character shapes??  That’s what these Pokemon snacks and things remind me of, lol!

These have the added bonus of being imported Japanese food, so you KNOW that they are packaged cutely and are a fun novelty to eat!

FURUTA POKEMON Jelly

These are convenient for putting in a bento-style lunch –
they are individually-packaged little servings of jelly,
for spreading on sandwiches or anything else appropriate in your lunch.
There is a different cute Pokemon on each one!

SANYO Sapporo No.1 Pokemon Noodles Seafood Flavor

Instant!!  Noodles!!  Y’all!!
This cup of instant noodles has little Pikachu faces in it,
along with Chimchar in the sample photo (I don’t know
if there are different Pokemon you can get, though)~
It looks SO TASTY!  Oh man, I’m craving noodles now…

TOHATO Pokemon White Chocolate Biscuits

These crunchy-looking cookies are white chocolate flavored
and come in little Pikachu shapes!

MARUMIYA Pokemon Rice Sprinkles Minipack 

You know, I’m not totally sure what these are, but maybe you guys can tell me?
There are a WHOLE BUNCH of individually-packaged servings of “rice sprinkles”
that you get here, decorated sort of like Pokemon cards.
I don’t know if it is flavoring for your rice?  But it seems to be another convenient,
single-serving thing to put in your bento. :3

Pokemon Get Chocolate Maker Tsukuru Oyatsu DIY Chocolate Kit

This is a whole kit for making your own milk + white chocolate Pokeballs,
with Pikachu (and Rowlet!) inside!
I think this is probably the coolest thing in this roundup –
DIY sweets things are just totally my weekness!

Figure skating is a beautiful sport to observe (I did ballet as a kid and love seeing ballet show up in this anime, too!), and there is a diverse cast in this show that we get to see performing a variety of routines!!

Patreon Monthly Summary – September 2017

Friday, September 29th, 2017

A huuuuuuge quantity of technical updates and backend polishing went on this month!! 🌟 And some great art progress as well!! 🎨 The environment is pretty much completely painted, with only a few uncolored details around the map~

Here’s a summary of each update post!:

  • In Background Art Lookin’ Good!, the first pieces of foliage were painted into the world~ 🌳 For the first time, the colorful fantasy environment was really made apparent; bushes and trees in a rainbow of colors populate this world! 🌈
  • The next update, Background Painting Coming Together – Cute Little House, the details of the map began to blossom up.  There is a cozy little house tucked in there – who could live there? 🏡  I also learned a fair bit about Game Maker’s texture pages!
  • A Flowery New Friend!! 🌸 This introduced a new inhabitant of the colorful world, with some fairly early art… she gets updated in another post or two!
  • In Serious Map-Building, the artsy aspects of the environment are set aside in order to get them all functioning as a map that the player can walk around in and interact with. 🏞️ There were a lot of lessons learned in this process!! 💪 And they all lead toward more efficient work in the future! 💪💪
  • A huuuuuge update summary post titled Dialog is getting really polished!! lists a great quantity of important fixes and additions!  Most importantly among them being DIALOG FOR THE NPC’S!! 🗣️💬
  • A SECOND huge update list is detailed in  The To-Do List is Getting Smaller~!! 📝  While most of the previous post covered things related to the NPC’s, this one is widely varied, with polishes for movement, placement of UI elements on the screen, and MUSIC!! 🎶
  • And, finally, just yesterday brought us Pauses in Dialog OMG!!!!!!    😱 Yes, I really am that excited about it, lol.  Making your reading dynamic is one of THE most important aspects of games with dialog, and I even share my code for finally figuring out how to implement this dynamic in this post. 👾
  • Also in the above post is a cute animated gif of the cute, tiny dust puffs I implemented as the characters walk around LOL. 🐾

Whew!  I’m really, REALLY happy about the amount of progress this month!! 🤗  Like I’ve said in these updates, there truly isn’t much technical stuff left, and it’s just up to me to paint the remaining details! 🎨🖌️

I’ll have something fun for everyone to download VERY soon! 🐇

✨ Thank you so much for taking the time to read my summary of what I’ve been up to over this month, and if you’d like to help in any form, consider the links below to either become a patron or just to donate once through Paypal any small amount~

These Official Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Fashion & Accessories are TOO Awesome!

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

ThinkGeek made this official fashion line available, featuring familiar motifs from Breath of the Wild!!  I think these are AWESOME!!  Some of them are kind of subtle, so you can wear them casually without it being suuuper obvious that you’re wearing something geeky (handy in some situations).  Of course, the overtly geeky stuff is awesome fun, too!

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sheikah Ladies’ Jacket

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Hylian Ladies’ Knitted Poncho Wrap

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Hylian Shield Ladies’ Knitted Poncho Wrap

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Divine Beasts Ladies’ Tee

These!!!  Are!!!  RAD!!!!!!  My fave of these four pieces is the blue shawl, which reminds me of Zelda’s blue, bell-sleeved dress~  The grey poncho is also really cool – its design is based on the Hylian Shield!

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Link Coat

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Link’s Arm Guard Sweater Hoodie

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Divine Beasts T-Shirt

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Link’s Tunic Sweater

Cool!!  The coat is another subtle one, but my favorite thing of these four is the light green cardigan sweater.  It reminds me a bit of Link’s starting out tunic, but the designs on it actually match the undershirt you see under the Champion’s tunic, and those Gerudo-motif arm designs are on there too!

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Mipha’s Beanie

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Backpack

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Revali Hooded Scarf

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Daruk Beanie Cap

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Urbosa Chiffon Scarf

!!! CHAMPION STUFF!!!  This is the first time I’ve ever seen official merchandise for the Four Champions.  Which is awesome, because NOW I CAN WEAR A SCARF LIKE URBOSA!!  Seriously, everything listed here is cool.  The Mipha beanie is so cute (and perf for fans of Sidon, too!), and the Revali hat with long scarf tails is so cool!!  I thought the Daruk thing was just a headband but it’s actually a beanie (the top is whitish grey).  When I realized that, it made me think of the black-headband-with-white-cap-on-top that the male Pokemon trainer from Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald wears, lol?!?

Watch The Royal Tutor Heine Episodes Streaming Online

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Oushitsu Kyoushi Heine (sometimes also spelled ‘Haine’) has been one of my FAAAAAVORITE anime in recent seasons!! It is SOOOO heartwarmingly sweet and makes you feel sooooooo good, of the warm-and-squishy comfort variety.

And the setting!! WOW!! It takes place in a fantasy version of an Austrian royal palace, and the anime isn’t shy about showing off beautiful royal halls and architecture – and the beautiful princes that live within them. Seriously, this show is SO beautiful! (And, LOL, don’t giggle at their hometown being named ‘Weiner’ – its name is based on ‘Vienna,’ LOL).

Also catch the live-action ending dance at the end of episode 7! Those are the stage actors for the live stage version of the show – they are the same actors who play the voices of the characters in the anime!
