T+CP Pocket Sideshow Series

Tomenosuke-Pocket-Sideshow

From Tomenosuke + Circus Posterus, comes the new T+CP mini sofubi Pocket Sideshow series. The release of the series will take place on October 9th 2014 (via Tomenosuke), with advance sales planned for TTF 2014. Orders from North America will need to go through Circus Posterus.

The four figures included in the series are (in order as pictured above): Snowshoe (Amanda Louise Spayd); Sproot (Chris Ryniak); Otto (Brandt Peters); Penelope (Kathie Olivas). And this is the perfect colorway, considering how the release will take place close to Halloween.

REVIEW: Tide Pool Stinky Ginger

TCP Tide Pool Stinky Ginger 01

Background

Produced by the T+CP (Tomenosuke and Circus Posterus) partnership, Chris Ryniak’s Stinky Ginger sofubi vinyl joins Brandt Peters’ Stingy Jack and Kathie Olivas’ Calliope Jackalope as the initial trio of T+CP designs.

The third, and newest, version of Miss Ginger is the Tide Pool Stinky Ginger. This Stinky Ginger features two spray masks (white and black) as well as sprays fading from blue-green to yellow-green. The hands and stomach are sprayed in the lighter yellow-green to have those areas stand out from the rest of the body, which is more subtly shaded.
