Approaching Otaku’s

After getting little response from my online posts about ‘Moe’ I have decided to take a different approach, and to look for some Otaku’s and contact them directly instead of letting the come to me.

I have contacted a few more sites like otakunews.com to see if I can get my project proposal publicised. I’ve noticed a lot of people post pictures of their rooms up on deviantART the problem I’m facing is no one is form the UK.

After looking through 200 photos on deviantART I have discovered none of them are from england. These are good references for doing this project abroad whilst I travel over the years, but I need to find someone in the UK. I cannot be discouraged, I know there are Otaku’s in the UK I just need to find them.

Danny Choo (THE blogger about otaku culture) blogged about the world most stylish Otaku Room. Danny Choo get’s a lot of his inseration from www.figure.fm they have a whole room section of their blog, might be worth looking through them to see if anyone from the UK has applied.

I failed to find any UK participants but I did find this…

Are you a Nendoroid or scaled figurines collector as well? Come join us @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/382107865139012/ because we are one as well! Join the community to interact with lots of other collectors and share release news as well! Cya there!

I have requested to joining the FB group and hopefully will find someone on their who will want to participate.

In my quest for an Otaku sanctuary I have found some on figure.fm, and contacted them about the project. Hopefully at least one will want to get involved.

These are some pictures the people I have contacted posted…

The work of LuluSeason

I came across LuluSeason’s work recently and fell in love with it. Her original characters are so well developed you would think they were from Shonen Jump!

Also her use of colours breaks away from the pastel tones of most fan art. Leading into the sci-fi genre.

These are *AlwaysxInfinity and *xxEmiChanxx ‘s characters, Star and Andromeda.
Original – Little Red Riding Hood.
Character Design Sheet of Louhi

And even her fan art of existing anime takes the characters to a whole new level.

I will 100% be contacting her to see if she will work on the unnamed project with me.
