Sure, a game is a game, but if you’re dealing with the Final Fantasy franchise, why not make it a muti media experience that you can live and love through spinoff mini games, movies, anime, and music? Let’s do ALL THE THINGS!
Square Enix hosted an elaborate announcement event in Los Angeles yesterday, “UNCOVERED: Final Fantasy XV,” which was chock full of 14 (!!!) announcements around the franchise.
So let’s see where this leaves our little fandom hearts, shall we?
With all of the Star Wars hype surrounding every corner of the nerd world recently, ChubbyBunny Michelle and Yume Ninja teamed up with Mandie of Geeky Glamorous to create this fashion editorial shoot featuring original design created by Catherine Elhoffer of Elhoffer Designs.

Yesterday, we were invited to the VIP opening of Tokidoki’s 10 year anniversary event kickoff!
Starting today, Tokidoki is holding a two day public event at The Well in downtown Los Angeles, where fans can shop exclusive products, meet Tokidoki founder Simone Legno, do fun activities, and eat yummy cute treats! The Tokidoki 10th Anniversary event is free and open to the public November 6 -7, from 10AM to 6PM at The Well, 1006 S Olive Street, Los Angeles, CA.
So of course, to celebrate the big event, there was a night time bash full of toys, friends, art, and cuteness overload! You can see our video from the night here!
This is IAMCHUBBYBUNNY, signing out… IN THE NAME OF THE MOOOOON!
Finally, the 80s mashup we didn’t know we were waiting for!
ChubbyBunny Michelle and Yume Ninja organized this group of rock star mutants for an X-Men and Jem mashup photoshoot! The same team that was behind the Sailor Moon Biker Gang Cosplay and the Gotham Playboy Bunnies group has brought together yet another group of totally outrageous cosplayers for “Jazz and the Hardlight Projections,” inspired by the art of Rage Gear Studios, and photographed again by Greg De Stefano.

If you are into anime at all, there’s no way you haven’t heard of Love Live, the insanely popular series that tells the story of a group of girls that saves their school by becoming an idol group, and gaining popularity by singing and dancing their way into people’s hearts, creating more new students for the small, failing school.
With two seasons under their belt, the 9 girls of LoveLive finish their story arc with their feature film, LoveLive! The School Idol Movie, debuting all of the world this past weekend. (Don’t worry, they are planning a new season, but it will feature different girls at a different school striving to be idols!)
NIS America distributed the LoveLive! movie across the US, including several sold out weekend showings at the Downtown Independent Cinema in Los Angeles, CA. Luckily, we (YumeNinja and Myself, ChubbyBunny Michelle) were able to score some tickets and join our weeaboo brethren to the path of our trash life, haha.
Check out our photos of fans from the Sunday showing, and then, my very, very fangirl version of a review. Spoilers below!
