Based in Melbourne, Australia, this blog was set up in May 2007. You can expect my photo shoots of various figures owned by either me or my friends, rantings of myself about various topics of my anime enthusiastic life, and similar items of interest.
What you won’t find here though, will be periodic anime episode reviews or the latest anime news, I’ll leave that to the experts.
This blog is a culmination of my amateur work and opinions relating to things that I love, mostly figures. This is a medium in which I can express my feelings of moé subjects.
Originating in Japan, moé, or rather, 萌え (mo-eh), is the indescribable sensation of affection towards a subject. Perceiving things as moé is up to the viewer’s interests and ideals, so one thing may appear moé to one person may be a complete turn-off for another.
Originated from the Greek word εἰδωλολατρία (eidololatria), simply, it’s the excessive or blind adoration, reverence, devotion, worshipping…you get the idea. However, there’s another meaning to the word Idolatry, which really has nothing to do with this blog.

Oh, and I love cats :3
You have Riuva to thank for that, their outdoor shots have inspired me to go out and find beautiful settings for the figures, but also making sure it “fits”, no point in taking photos of say, Black Saber in a bed of pink and yellow flowers…just doesn’t do it for me. Danny Choo and super rats also have influenced me when I first started reading such blogs, so cheers to them too~
