Let's make virtual goods as physical goods!

I make Jack-O'-Lantern.

However, this is not an original design. An original is this.

I made Jack-O'-Lantern of the Japanese popular virtual world Ameba Pigg using the pumpkin grown by me.

How to making is here
(Sorry, only Japanese information is available)

If virtual goods become the physical, do not you think that it is interesting?


Camera apps for iOS of photographer Mika Ninagawa "cameran" is fabulous!

"cameran" is camera apps for iOS becoming the topic most in Japan now. Photographer & movie director Mika Ninagawa supervised this. She is known for richly colored works, and we can easily imitate her works using this apps.

This is photo of near my house. It's cloudy sky.
Let's put various filters on it. How to use is about the same with Instagram.

However, the kinds of filters are totally different! Anyway, they are vivid and richly colored!

Furthermore, we can regulate the luminosity, chroma and contrast. This has higher flexibility than other cameras apps.

Oh! Cloudy sky became vivid!

This is the pumpkin which I cultivate.

Farm products became gorgeous!

Furthermore, this has movement function of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

My recommendation is an interlocking movement with Instagram. We can use both of filters of cameran and Instagram if we use this.

We may make a more individual photos.

The scenery of the ordinary country became cool!

In addition, there is the wall papers for the people who wants to enjoy original works of Mika Ninagawa. Of course they are very splendid, too.


Cosplay is difficult in not only the reality world but also the virtual world

Japanese popular virtual world Ameba Pigg started a tie-up with masterpiece of Manga/Anime "Lupin the 3rd"(Wiki).

Ameba Pigg sells the Cosplay virtual goods of characters of Lupin the 3rd. Users can let one's avatar do Cosplay using these. However, Cosplay is very difficult in both the reality world and the virtual world.

This is my avatar wearing the wig of male character "Goemon" of the character of Lupin the 3rd.

And this is my avatar wearing the wig of female character #Fujiko". Please compare these with a top official image. These are so unnatural.

In Cosplay, the most important point is "harmony". Wig, clothes and face, all must harmonize.  However, there are few Cosplayers which are completely made in this. There are the Cosplayer where a face and a wig do not harmonize in the reality world, too.

Of course Ameba Pigg users can change the face of one's avatar. Furthermore, they can wear make-up. However, those functions are charged in Ameba Pigg. I think that this reflects real strictness. A high expense is necessary for plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery in the reality world, and we must buy the cosmetics. It is not easy to become cool Cosplayer in both the reality world and the virtual world....

I cannot change a face because I am poor. So I always deceive it by laughing and singing. There is not it so funnily if we cannot see eyes.

And I to turn to back if possible.

By the way, Cosplay and the role playing are very fun! It is right a way of enjoying in the virtual world. We can make friends with unknown users immediately when we do Cosplay.

I remembered early Second Life and became nostalgic. Former Second Life had a lot of such community. How's the now?


GREE's Monster upbringing RPG---US-style VS J-style

GREE International released new social game apps "Monster Quest". Funzio studio developed this(They were purchased by GREE in this May ). Monster Quest is a Pokemon like game  plainly. Users go for adventure, collect various monsters, bring them up, evolve and fight with other monsters. After Pokemon, a lot of resemblance "monster RPG" appeared. The monster RPG of Japan's GREE is "Monpla"

The basics of the monster RPG are "cute(Kawaii)" Because users cannot feel upbringing if monsters are not cute. The most important point of the monster RPG is to "upbringing" not fighting.

However, Funzio designed "Monster Quest" in this way.

Not cute :)

Which do you like designs of monster RPG of US-style or J-style?
