I remember seeing someone create a 3d model of a Snow Miku. I can’t say that it was the best modeling I’ve seen, but it was a nice wish. I can’t remember who, probably GSC, eventually did release a Snow Miku 1:8 scale. It didn’t look that great though.
I quite like the original GSC Miku Hatsune, so I figured, why not make a Snow Miku version out of that? It’s Christmas now too.
And here’s a youtube video of it being made. All in all, 54 minutes. That’s pretty extreme for the type of work, I think…
Remember when my Gordon Ramsay toaster oven exploded? Well, I had been without a toaster oven since then (which was okay, since I was away in Singapore anyway). But finally, my new toaster arrived.
Isn’t she a beaut? This baby has dual-brick inlays, 1800RPM convection fan, tinted glass, 1700 watts, top and bottom load racks, 0.9 cubic feet, stainless steel exterior housing, interior light, 4 bake modes, and can reach 0F to 450F in 5.5 minutes – twice the speed of standard toaster ovens. This is 34 pounds of pure power. And it makes excellent toast.
One of the best reviewed toasters I’ve seen on the internet, and at a really good price (I got it for about the same price as that el-cheapo Gordon Ramsay toaster! Take THAT!) from Costco. For some reason, it sells for $400 on amazon.com.
I guess I can consider this my Christmas gift, since I had spent so much money already just going to Singapore. My wife bought herself something just today. I guess that shopping blood never really simmers down. 🙂 She almost got a parking ticket today too!
I personally avoided the malls like the plague. Last minute shoppers everywhere, and the high level of stress is probably not a good sign. I’m sure you could feel the tension in the malls…
Did any of you need to do some last minute shopping? Either for others, or for yourself? If so, any horror stories?
It’s still December 24th for me. Just 2.5 more hours before Christmas, and maybe I can open some presents. Maybe? I’ve been good this year, Santa! If no presents, gimme something gooood. (you know what I mean! *nudge nudge*)
How did you celebrate your Christmas this year?
