Today's entry is kind of silly and may make some of you laugh out loud, but bare with me. Between all the nastiness, perversion and senseless violence, there are gem Animes buried deep below. Eureka Seven, the best one and also in my top 5 best TV shows of all time is a GEM. I became literally obsessed with this show in college when my then boyfriend and now husband Grant got me watching. I thought the first episode was SO silly and dumb and just not my thing. I HATED ALL anime and manga. Hated it. I had the same pre-conceived notion that most women do. Anime is just busty cartoons running around shooting people with stars in their eyes. Well I was totally wrong in categorizing them all like this.
Three episodes in and I was blubbering like a baby. Seriously, this show had me hooked and the characters were so relatable. I was sucked in and realized I cared more about these "cartoon" characters than I did about any other TV show at the time. Eureka, being one of the main characters was my very favorite. And if you've ever seen the show, you'll know why.
Why am I talking about anime on my photograph bucket list you ask? Because as my list of themed shoots I wish to do grows, this one is climbing to the top. If I had willing models, awesome costumes and a perfect location, I would just die to shoot an Eureka Seven inspired shoot. Complete with all of the main characters. I should include that the last 2 years I dressed as girls from this show to conventions here in Indy ;) Alright, now that you all see just HOW geeky I can be, I will explain the picture.

After getting totally crazy obsessed with the show, I got inspired to create a custom Pullip of Eureka herself. At this point I was really doing Blythe customization a lot and I wanted a Pullip to add to the collection. Plus Pullips have that "anime look". I got a doll and began the customization process. Wig, costume, shoes. etc. I commissioned the dress from some awesome people over on Flickr, and soon enough, I had my dream Eureka dolly. She goes with me to all my geek conventions and the Eureka Seven movie premiere. She's a big hit and totally one of a kind!
Have a great Saturday guys! Can't believe the month is almost over : /
