Probably gonna buy my first car on Monday, and i'm really excited about it because this car (or it's predecessor) is a childhood dream of mine since playing the very first Need For Speed about 20 years ago. Since then, in every racing game i used one of these 2 cars whenever they were even remotely available. It's quite a strange car to be a childhood dream, but then, i'm strange as well :p

a Mazda RX-8

It's the last car to be produced with a Wankel rotary engine, so it's something special and different from the usual. I say "probably" because it's a second hand car since they aren't sold anymore in Europe since 2010 due to emission regulations. When i found out about this thought that if i want one of these cars, then it's probably best do buy it now. I went on a test drive with it last weekend, and everything seemed okay. But on Monday i'll bring it to an independent test center which will check the car thoroughly and tell me if everything is in order with it. If everything is alright, i'll buy it.

And then i intend to put a Yukiho on the bonnet and/or the sides. Does anyone have a high resolution and/or vector graphics picture of Yukiho in idol clothes and with a transparent background?

This lack of employment is getting frustrating, but I don't have choices of where to go now, actually.

Well, depends what sort of idol clothes you want. If you're willing to work with a blue screen, you pretty much have a 720/1080p shot of any im@s2X360  costume, if you're out of any other options, I suppose.

Here are pictures of Yukiho with a transparent background, in some of them she's wearing idol clothes:

I'm not sure if they're high enough resolution to put on a car, though. You could also take an image without transparency and then remove the background.

Thanks a lot, i'll see if the resolution is high enough (first i need the car anyway).
I'd love to have the picture from the pops in a decent resolution. This one:

I might even consider to scan in my pop, but i'd need to find some place which is able to do that since it's big and can't be bent.

The problem with removing the background myself is that the border is never clean that way, it always has artifacts. At least with my tools/skills.

The only picture i have found myself so far is this:

But she doesn't wear an idol outfit in this

Since scanning your pop isn't feasible, you could try taking a photo of it and then correcting the perspective with software like Plumb-Bob. To get the best quality image file make sure the pop is evenly lit, use a tripod, low ISO, and a very long exposure time. You can even take multiple photos and average them together to remove noise. Actually, I can do the perspective correction and averaging for you, all you have to do is send me the photos. :) Oh, I'd also need the dimensions of the pop (four easily identifiable points on Yukiho and their x and y coordinates).

If you can wait, you might want to try your luck in the vectoring thread on 4chan's /w/. Although that image is really small and there's a huge chance it'll get ignored because of that. Maybe really try the photo, but have somebody vector it for image quality?

Actually yeah, vectoring the photo would be the best. Now that I'm on PC, it's far smaller than it looked on my phone. No way anyone would even try making the details from a picture that small.

Been watching Black Friday videos with my dad and holy fuck people are like a zombie horde, just plowing through doors and clawing at everything. George Romero has it spot on! :P
Suddenly, bow-wow-wow~. :3

There's always a lot of injuries and a few deaths nowadays, and if you get a chance, touring stores as it happens (or just after) is quite educational. It's less so now due to the advent of online, and the current economic climate though.

I used to do it for Boxing day sales (in Australia) and seeing where the damaged goods at major department chains were. If you want real carnage, watch the electronics or the women's clothing sections.

Have you seen Shaun Of The Dead? Obviously being inspired by Romero it also has it, but it's a comedy and the opening scenes are amazing for it.

^ Luv that movie! XD

I'm suddenly reminded of this one Black Friday vid at Walmart from a couple years back.  Think ya'll prolly saw this already, but this guy's wife got trapped under a crowd of people fighting over TVs and he went in there pushing and pulling people off to save her.  Another place to avoid lol.  Scary seeing people turn into animals like that over their own greed.  Everyone stay safe.
