About


A-hoy-hoy, I'm BeckyHolly!

I'm from the lovely country of New Zealand. No, I am not a Hobbit. I don't live on a sheep farm either. And I'm only just out of high school, so forgive any childish remarks. I like to think I'm pretty mature...yeah, whatever.

I love death metal, Adult Swim cartoons and anime. In fact, I love anime so much that I'm willing to spend hundreds of dollars on anime-related goods such as figures and statues. I'm one of the few people left who still loves to buy DVDs. I love collecting things, always have, it's just that now my interests cost me more! My favourites are 1/8 scale PVC. Of boys. I like boys. Preferably with huge weapons.

My favourite anime genre is seinen. I love Gantz, Baccano!, Black Lagoon, Hellsing...that kind of stuff. Though my all-time favourite would have to be Soul Eater, hence my avatar.

I really wish I'd chosen a more imaginative name. Next time, it'll be ROBOT PANTS. Boosh!

That's all I have for now, toodles. Or ka kite ano, as we say here.

The Hobbit is premiering shortly, and my dear city of Wellington, New Zealand is being covered in 'Middle Earth' paraphernalia yet again! I thought I'd take some photos to show my fellow Tomopoppers what public Weta Workshop-related art there is around.

In a bookstore right in the heart of town is a statue of a Black Horse and Rider. It must be 1/1 scale, perhaps bigger. The effect is subdued somewhat by being in a bookstore, but oh well. I'm surprised it fits actually, the ceiling is just above it...





Yeah I dunno what's up with the tags either >_<





Down by the Embassy Movie Theatre, where the premiere for all the Lord of the Rings films and The Hobbit will be held, is a massive sculpture of Gandalf a-knocking on the door of Bag End.








It's really very big, as you can see...



And across the street from it is a big robo-tripod thing that's been there a few years and was put in to commemorate District 9 and Weta Workshop, I think.





The machines are coming!




Hopefully my photos weren't too crappy and you can get a sense of scale of the sculptures! Thanks for looking :3
