The Art Fish : Art Named Capering by {anc} aki - Tuner Gacha

Tu'na - Inspired by Tuner Gacha prizes from {anc}
There are very few things that {anc} aki creates that I do not fall in love with almost straight away. Being able to use his items for my image making is just a perfect collaboration as I always find them so inspiring. {anc} aki makes quite a few collections of items for gacha - which is

"Gashapon (ガシャポン gashapon?) is a Bandai brand trademark (U.S.Registration Number.2864782) widely used throughout the world for their capsule toys. It is also referred to as gachapon (ガチャポン gachapon?)." Both gashapon and gachapon are Japanese onomatopoeia, made up of two sounds: "gasha" or "gacha" for the turning of a crank on a toy vending machine, and "pon" for the sound of the toy capsule dropping into the receptacle. It is used to describe both the machines themselves, and any toy obtained from them. Tomy, another major player in capsule toy market, uses "Gacha" (ガチャ gacha?) instead of "Gachapon" for their capsule vending machines and toys." - Wikipedia.

SL does seem to have caught Gacha fever, with many regularly occuring Gacha events being held including the Fantasy Gacha Carnival (re-opening for the May season on 04.05.2014) which is where you will find the Tuner Gacha. I would describe the collection as a hybrid exploration of Baroque sensuality in a steam punk hyperballad - featuring beautiful headphones with scrolled headdresses and mechanical speakers.'Spear eye' masks that accompany and match these with closed eyes, lash and screw details. The plat de résistance in the collection however are the stunning Ultra Rare prizes  - Hermaphroditism Chair  (One and Two)
