Wooden Drinholder for cult drinks

As another birthday of a friend came up and we stood there with not even the slightest idea of what might make a good gift we had to get a little creative - first came the idea of collecting some nerdy and culty drinks (non-alcoholic, i think in this respect non-alcoholic has way more style) and well, give him a set of cool drinks. Next were some thoughts about how to package it and well, while thinking about some cardboard setups to pack it up the idea for this wooden drink holder which can be dual-used as a drinkholder shelf.

See the pictures below for the whole drink collection as well as the drinkholder and both put together :P.

Say hi to the KanojoFrame!

Hi and welcome to a new full fledged (i at least hope so) tutorial to hack together a fast-switch picture frame, our so-called "KanojoFrame". As i must admit the idea is not fully genuinely ours, we designed and built it with the moo-frame from the excellent business-card supplier moo.com: Moo Mosaic-Frame.

The idea is to have a frame thats front glass plate is dismount- and mountable in the glimpse of a eye thus allowing to change the contents without too much of a hassle. The other aspect is that the whole content of the frame is made up of a mosaic of mini-pictures framed by small but thick cardboard frames. You can then use cardboard spacer to lay the small framed image-"cards" (moo.com are half business cards, ours are roughly creditcard-size) out in every way you want to create a nice compilation of the works displayed!

The frame itself is quite flat, 6mm without glass, rougly 8.5mm with the glass front attached. The glass it held by a couple of strong rare-earth magnets and sits very tight, so no worries about falling glass. The inner frame can hold around 7*3(=21) of our cardboard-mini-frames, but ... see for yourself! And if you feel like it, make one yourself....

1/8 GSC Inaba Yui

The latest addition to my figure collection is Inaba Yui from eroge Flyable Hearts, 1/8 scale made by Good Smile Company. Figure renditions of less popular works of Ito Noizi are few and far between so I was convinced in an instant when she was for sale. A figure of an image of my favorite artist? Yes please!

Her prototype pictures were impressive and although you can't compare my amateur pictures to those, the final product is not quite as good as the prototype (usually GSC does a pretty good job..). But I got her from the bargain bin so what can I say..

Let's start by taking a look at the package first.

Meronpan + Stuff

Every weeaboo has to try making meronpan at one point or another. In fact I've tried it three times now. The first time we had an awful recipe, the second time I've tried making the recipe better (which didn't help) and this time it looks like we're on the right track.

We've used Wild Yeast's recipe - if you want to try it yourself we can definitely recommend it.
