Every once in a while I like to do a short survey to see what you all most enjoy about Chic Pixel, and what areas I could improve in. This really helps me decide what kind of content to focus on, so please take a couple of minutes to complete the survey!
The survey consists of 3 multiple choice questions about what kind of content you like best and what you would like to see more of, along with a space for you to send me more detailed thoughts/suggestions. Thank you in advance!
I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since my last food video! This one is extra special, too, because it’s a collaboration with my friend Meivu and her Meivu Makes series! We both decided to make Japanese food-themed Popin’ Cookin’ videos that include both footage of the candy kit making process and our thoughts on how the food tastes. Be sure to check out Meivu’s video after watching mine below!
You can tell it’s been a long time since I did a candy kit because I make a real mess of it! I also wanted to film the video while I still had good lighting, which meant that I didn’t read the directions very carefully and ended up “free-styling” a few things. Looking at the photo on the package, I think I should’ve put some of the gyoza filling candy in the soup, as well! Whoops!
Regardless, this video was a ton of fun to film! I have a lot of candy kits left in my cupboard, so expect a few more DIY candy videos over the next couple weeks!
Happy September, everyone! I always love a good Community Game-Along theme that rolls right off the tongue, which is why this year’s pick for September is SPRGs! Play any strategy or tactical turn-based role playing game and share your experiences with #SRPGSeptember on social media to join in the fun!
If you’re not sure where to start, read on for a few game suggestions from me. Feel free to add some of your own in the comments!
Despite the fact that my Wii U generally got much less play time than my other consoles, Splatoonwas by far my most-played game of 2015. In my roundup of my favorite games of 2015 I mentioned that I hoped the Splatoon IP was here to stay. Since it’s only 2 years later and Nintendo has already released Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch, I think it’s safe to say it is!
Earlier in the year, I didn’t forsee myself buying a Switch before next year at the earliest. Though I loved the original Splatoon, I thought I could hold off playing the sequel since it didn’t bring anything drastically new to the table. While the latter may be true, the former most certainly wasn’t!
Back in July, I shared a picture of a magnet I made by sticking a cute Hakuouki art card on a magnet ad I got in the mail on my Instagram feed. I was really surprised by the positive response I got! I’m really passionate about reusing/recycling things when possible, and it was really nice to see people interested in the whole idea of kawaii paper magnets. That’s why, for this week’s video, I decided to try my hand at a DIY video tutorial on how to make kawaii paper magnets yourself!
I’ve always been a fan of stories about someone trapped inside an MMO, so when I heard Aksys Games was localizing Period: Cube ~Shackles of Amadeus~, I was thrilled! As an otome game featuring that very premise, Period: Cube centers around a high school girl that gets trapped in the MMO Arcadia. After searching for clues of her missing brother’s whereabouts, all signs point to the mysterious “World V,” a new server in Arcadia where death is absolute. If your character dies, you die!
Long time no post! I’m really excited to be getting back into the groove now that my thesis has been submitted, and that means more videos! I got a new camera, a Canon EOS M3, so hopefully the quality of my videos will be much better going forward, too!
Today’s video is an unboxing of the 2017 Snow Miku Nendoroid, which I preordered back in February and just received in the mail about a week ago. If you’re not familiar with the Snow Miku figures, Good Smile Company holds a contest every year for fans to submit their designs. The winning design is made into a Nendoroid and a figma!
Snow Miku is closely tied with Hokkaido’s Snow Festival, so the contest themes are related to various aspects of Hokkaido (Snow Miku’s animal friend is based on a type of mountain hare native to Hokkaido!). This year’s theme was “the starry sky/winter constellations in Hokkaido,” and this was the first year the winning design was chosen entirely by online voters!
Please leave a comment with kind of videos you’d like to see more of! (either here or on Youtube is fine) My goal is to upload one video a week! Your feedback helps keep me motivated!
