I came home earlier this week to find that the postman had left me a small package in my mailbox. It was from CD Japan, meaning my copy of Otacool had arrived!
First a little history… The book is a result of a collaboration between Danny Choo and Kotobukiya. Several months ago, Danny had asked for photo submissions showing off their own otaku rooms. I jumped at the chance and broke out the camera for some pictures. Sophie, of course, made it into several shots. Along with the photos, Danny asked each person to provide a small bio to be printed if chosen.
Here it is, my very own page in Otacool! I even made it, though you can’t actually see my face… makes me wish I submitted a better photo. ^.^ Sophie, of course, made it into several parts of the book In addition to being on the cover (top left photo), she also shows up twice in the larger shots and in a thumbnail in the table of contents. Even a pile of her toys can be seen…
To see the photos I used for my submission, check them out here and here. Also, be sure to check out the Otacool Site to see all the other awesome submissions! It also looks like there might be an Otacool 2 at some point, so if you didn’t make the first set, better get snapping!
