    I am unusually late to comment on J.J. Abrams being pegged to direct the upcoming STAR WARS Episode 7 feature film (need I remind you folks Lucasarts is now sold to Disney?), and frankly I have nothing much to add to whatever the supporters nor naysayers have to say about such a happenstance, except I am looking forward to it. Abrams has the distinction of having "nerd-points" in my personal "

    I just love Victorian Era dresses and also love creating penny rug pictures using wool felt and thought penny rug Victorian dress picture decorations would be nice. So, my Victorian Dresses Series was born.

    Belle Of The Gray Ball is an e-pattern to create two 8" by 8" Victorian wool felt dress pictures in 10" by 10" purchased picture frames with a Victorian dresses in a penny rug style design.

    The felt dress piece is embroidered to the felt background and the felt dress overskirt piece is embroidered to the felt dress piece. Lace trims, seed beads, and other embellishments are sewn to the dress and overskirt piece.

    The base and back lining are blanket stitch embroidered along the edges. Lazy daisy flowers are embroidered to surround the dress design.

    The pattern can be made as just a penny rug wool felt blanket stitched picture or enclosed within a wall picture frame or tabletop picture frame.

    The pattern includes text instructions, step-by-step color diagrams for finishing the penny rug dress pictures from start to finish, full page picture layout sheet, and full page single sided pattern piece sheets. The pattern also includes step-by-step illustrations and instructions for Basic Blanket Stitching and Lazy Daisy Flower Instructions.

    “Cousin Hillary's Secret Hawk”, 3 1/2” Softie Wool Felt Doll E-Pattern - The Egg Muff Series - Pattern Category - Skill Level - Beginner

    The "Egg Muff's" are a fun loving group of dolls that love to sneak around and maybe, every once in awhile, drop in unexpectedly. And, the Toni E. Hawk and her brother, Tom A. Hawk, are the most fun loving of the group. You might find then peaking around a corner, peaking over the windowsill, peaking through a keyhole in a door, or sneaking into your room. You just never know. Sometimes you might just catch a glimpse of their eyes and hair as they try to sneak a peak. If you listen carefully, you might even hear them laughing, even chuckling away. Sometimes you might even catch them doing a little jig. You just never know what they may do. They love to laugh. They love to have fun. But, most of all they love to play hide and peak! No, not hide and seek! Hide and peak!

    The "babies" of the Hawk family are Devilish Cousin Andy Hawk, Cousin Reginald Reggie Pinhead Hawk, and Cousin Hillary's Secret Hawk.  They are a trio of mischievous cousins that try their Aunt Nancy Dew Drops patience at times.  After baby sitting them for a few hours Aunt Nancy has a migraine and has to go home to rest.  That's when she leaves the baby sitting to Spike A Peek and that might actually be her mistakes as he tends to put ideas into the mischievous cousins little heads.  He is an "Egg Muff" after all.

    Cousin Hillary's Secret Hawk is a 3 1/2" squared bottomed self-standing wool felt softie doll. She has a 1/2 white felt and 1/2 light blue felt body. Her face is outlined and embroidered and she has an expressive face. Her nose is pointy and embroidered as is her mouth, eyelashes and eyebrows. She has bronze blushed cheeks.

    Cousin Hillary's Secret Hawk  has a mass of curly light brown hair on the top of her head with the back of her head left bald. She is wearing her favorite light blue felt shirt with matching felt collar and favorite royal blue felt vest. A matching royal blue felt bow looks wonderful under her chin.

    The expression on Cousin Hillary's Secret Hawk's face is not by accident.  She really does have a secret to tell.  Something she knows about one of her brothers or sisters.  Something she's going to use to her advantage when the time is right.  I wonder what her secret is?  Do you know?

    Enchiridion iPad Case

    In the world of Adventure Time, the Enchiridion is a sacred handbook for heroes, filled with all kinds of useful info like how to harness the magical healing properties of cyclops tears and how to kiss princesses. It can also rip wormholes through the multiverse leading to the total annihilation of all existence, but that’s a whole other thing.

    Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's Tamaki Kousaka screenshot

    It's no secret around here that I've got a bit of a soft spot for To Heart's lovely vixen Tamaki, often jumping at the latest release news. Until now though, I've never gotten the chance to actually get a closer look at one on my own. Thankfully that all changed with the release of Kotobukiya's gigantic Deluxe Tamaki.

    It's hard not to love the towering 1/4 scale figures as is, but with a favorite character like Tamaki, she'd be held up to a bit more scrutiny. Hit the jump to find out if she's as sweet as she looks, or if this summery lady just ends up melting.

    Figure Name: Tamaki Kousaka Deluxe
    Figure Maker: Kotobukiya
    Retail/List Price: ¥12,800
    Available at: 
    HobbyLink Japan

    Now, certainly, a character like Tamaki needs little introduction. One of the most popular characters ever from a fairly popular visual novel, Tamaki's been drawn, modeled, and marketed more times than I can count. Indeed, while To Heart itself may have drifted into visual novel history, the fact Tamaki continues to breed such popularity speaks quite a bit for her character -- or that people just really, really like curvy redheads.

    Whatever the case may be, she's hard to miss, and it's not always easy to make a decision on just which Tamaki one should add to their collection, particularly when the options are as sizable as this Deluxe version in particular. So, let's get into things!

    Box shot

    First off, she's packaged in a fairly standard box. The window is nice and large giving you a good look at Tamaki herself, and I also like the inclusion of the source artwork in the corner rather than just showing more images of the very figure you're about to unpack. The package is tied together with Kotobukiya's classy logo, and it all comes together rather nicely, if simply.

    front shot

    Now, I've owned a few 1/5 scale figures, but I'm pleased to say Tamaki is my first coming in at 1/4. You wouldn't necessarily think such a small jump would make a difference in size, but Tamaki is enormous! Even kneeling down she's almost as tall as the average 1/5 scale character, and she's quite hefty to boot, weighing in at over four pounds!

    base shot

    One thing I found interesting is that while she certainly stands up well enough on her own, the included base is, well, curious to say the least. It's a soft blue cushion, just big enough to fit her on it without the popsicle. Given the theme, I'm not sure if it's supposed to be further melted popsicle or water, but it's a nice cute little touch.


    popsicle stick

    As for her popsicle itself, it's big. Really big. Bigger than Tamaki herself, as you can see, and nearly a foot long as it towers at just a bit over eleven inches. While it's almost as simple as you'd expect from a popsicle, Koto added some small touches to add just a bit of flavor. Along with the melted tip, droplets run down the sides here and there, and they've also added some writing along the stick itself. Of course, the real important part of the whole package is Tamaki herself, so without further ado let's take a look at the lovely lady!

    side shot

    When it comes to her overall positioning, I really dig it. It's got an air of casualness about it, particularly in the way Tamaki's arms are draped around the popsicle. I'd be avoiding the elephant in the room if I didn't acknowledge the many directions Kotobukiya could have taken with a massive popsicle and a character known for her sex appeal, so I'm glad to see the figure has a larger air of "fun!" than it does "I belong in porn!"

    face shot

    Nothing makes this more clear than the absolutely adorable expression on her face! Tamaki figures range from looking sexy to naughty and much in between, but few I can recall have an expression that just screams cute. Her bright eyes and smile, coupled with the silliness of her tongue poking out is all just too much. I'm not a huge fan of the original artwork, but Koto lent the expression an air of their own, and it's really fantastic. I couldn't be happier with how cute it turned out.


    Of course, it wouldn't be Tamaki if there wasn't some cheesecake, and certainly along with all the cuteness she serves it up in spades. While I love her figure overall, particularly her stomach and legs, I unfortunately do have to say this is the one area I'm not too much a fan of. Tamaki's always been a rather endowed character, but here she just looks more fake than large. It's not a deal breaker, but it is disappointing to see her curves swinging to the less-than-natural side. Fortunately the popsicle is in the way, further aiding in keeping it from being a huge concern.



    Indeed, there's still plenty to love! The aforementioned stomach and legs are very nicely crafted, and beyond just being fanservicey, make a nice point in the difference between figures of this scale and those around the smaller norm. Tamaki's 1/4 scale really lets Koto sculpt things carefully, and you get a lot of anatomical detail you wouldn't otherwise. You can see this mostly in the line of her stomach and ribs, though it's noticeable all over the figure.


    Naturally this detail extends to the hair too, and she's got a nice lush look that completely covers her back, accentuating both her unique twintails along with a number of messy strands hanging loosely. I do wish the actual back of her hair apart from the twintails was a little more defined, but her trademark hairstyle is very noticeable and that's the important part!


    Over all, Tamaki ends up being a fantastic figure with a few minor quibbles that shouldn't really turn any real fan away. As a fan, I absolutely love it, and she's definitely the best quality overall amongst the few large scale figures I've had my eye on. Some have come close, but she definitely feels the most solidly and capably crafted despite the niggling issues, and I'd absolutely have to recommend her not just to Tamaki fans, but anyone that wants a high quality, attractive figure that's quite a bit larger than the norm!

    News just in on the Prefect Effects announcement of new PE-DX02, PW-01, and PE-DX03 products that will be coming our way soon. We already know about the PE-DX02 figure that is the Black edition of the PE-DX01 release. Also teased is the PW-01 Perfect Effect PW-01 Master Sword accessory that is obviously a remake of the Car Robots Super God Convoy / Brave Max sword. Lastly, a silhouette of the PE-DX03 is shown as a larger scale figure that is to be announced, but we have to wonder if its not a Fort Max homage. Check out the image below now.
