From Russia With Love

From Russia With Love
23 Jan 2011 01:35:42

Today I received a rather large and mysterious package from Russia. Moe and my HoiHois decided to help me open it. (btw in this first picture you can also see my “massive” gaming setup)


The HoiHois cutting it open.


After opining it I learned that it contained four wrapped presents and a letter explaining that this is a (late) Christmas/ New year present from usagi_joou it also enplanes what the Russian things are. Now I was already having a bit of fun while opining the box so this made opining the rest even funner. :)


Now on to the gifts themselves...

The first gift was an EX:Ride Minibike!


I must admit that I’ve been meaning to get more of these but actual figures come first and I cancel these. The quality on this one is much better then on the scooter (only other one I have) it even has reflective stickers for the rear view mirrors.

More pictures.

The second gift was a set of Soviet advertising posters!


I'm always fascinated by old advertisements like these back when they were art instead of the quickly photoshopped crap of today and the unusual forms (at least to me) of Russian writing always looks interesting to me. I couldn’t think of a good way to photograph them so I only took a picture of the one.

The third gift is Russian sweets!


I have no idea how to describe these the letter says that they are “pomadka” and says that its some sort of curd or fudge. Googling it gives me no information but I can tell you that it is quite delicious.

And the forth and final gift is an Illustration of Shelf mascot Leila by Usagi herself!


キタ━━━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━━━!!!!! Amazing! I had no idea that you were such a good artist! This drawing is wonderful!

Thank you for these wonderful gifts! You put so much thought into them sadly I don’t have anything to give you so I hope my thanks is enough. These really cheered me up! :D

Yay, I'm soo glad you enjoyed my presents! Especially posters and art. You told me that you like graphic design, so I had a hitch that you'll like the posters.

And about art... I'm lazy so I don't draw often, and only doing it for my friends. I'm really happy that you think that my art is good. This is inspiring and I maybe will draw more!

Of course I don't mind. It even be easer for me if you tell me what you want to see: I'm better when I'm doing something specific, not just "drawing something".

No problem. Mind telling me a little more about her? What is a "derivative" when Vocaloids are concerned? She's made by some fans or what?

I'm not into Vocaloid's world, so I'm asking^_^

She is fan made (but is considered an official character now) "derivative" means a Vocaloid who's voice is bases on an existing ones voice and given a new personality and design. Haku is based on Miku's voice she originally represented poorly done Miku vocals (but she now has an official voice that sounds like an older miku) Her personality is that she is constantly depressed and has a drinking problem.
