APO-Chillin' At The TOYSREVIL-HQ #toylife


It all started with the above pic, as I had wanted to showcase Twelvedot's APO Frogs (purchased at STGCC) and to answer folks' queries about the frogs' articulation … to which the answer as seen from these images is; "YES" and they could easily be removed from their joint sockets too!


Then I thought to do a more "elaborate" dioramic set-up, featuring "props" and such, having the frogs saunder about in a quasi post-apocalypse setting (APO Frogs = "Apocalyse" Frogs; true story) … and the result was a tad too "chaotic" in colors, which I then tried to desaturate and provide a sepia hue throughout to bind the image together … Do you think it worked? :)

I'm just happy to play with my toys LOL (All images are linked to their original Instagrams)

#PopconAsia2014 Opens


The third annual Popcon Asia opened it's doors 10am today (not more than 1/2 an hour Singapore-time) to offer three days of pop culture and design arts festivities from September 19th thru to the 21st.

I've always wondered about the event, although I have near zero perception on how the show actually is, having only covered it via the comforts of my chair at home in TOYSREVIL-HQ. This year proved a bit "different" than the usual, as I've collaborated with Bandung-based artist Marine Ramdhani with a release of a capsule collection, as well having my custom-Jouwe represented at the event … a gift of grace seeing that I'm only a blogger in the bigger scheme of things :)

I'll take this opportunity to thank the folks of The Brotherhood of Toys for inviting me to Jakarta for this event, but alas my Dengue Fever has kept my one ear near-deafened still, and me away from the good food and company ...
