So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]
Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]
I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]
It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. I've been getting a lot of questions as to whether or not I'd keep this site as I'll be working with GSC now. I'll still post here from time to time, but lately my time has been taken up by work so it won't be as often sadly. But last night I got… [more]
Sadly I’m still sick but I’m feeling much better. I had more energy today to actually go outside for a change and i went and did another photo shoot with Mahoro this time. I’ve been dying to do a Mahoro shoot since i got her. I originally intended to do this on another stretch of road farther away but traffic has increased pretty badly in that area, and i didn’t want to risk putting myself or Mahoro in any danger.
Love the Detail on her gun, not sure if you can tell but it says VESPER on the side.
The face is done amazingly well considering that it’s Kotobukiya. They tend to be a little off when it comes to faces in general.
You can see my lovely car in the background here. She’s not the fastest little girl on the road but she gets me from A to B. Plus she’s awesome on the gas mileage.
The detail on her bike as also quite amazing. It’s the first thing i notice when i pulled her out of the box, just how amazing the detail on her bike really is.
The folds on her dress really suit her position, but i have a feeling that it would have gone up a teeny bit higher up on her leg.
My father has had a few motorcycle in his life and when i first got Mahoro even he was amazed at the detail on the bike. It really compliments this figure.
I know i keep raving about the bike but it’s the centerpiece of this figure, and the main reason she’s so expensive. While mahoro is a much smaller figure at a 1/12 scale the bike is what makes this figure. Some people have mentioned to me that this figure is out of character and doesn’t suit Mahoro. I think not, i have yet to see the anime in full but i’ve read the manga like 90 billion times (i might be exaggerating just a tad.) But i honestly feel this is perfectly suited to Mahoro, I can honestly see her cruising down the road, guns blazing, fighting off The Keepers on this bike. Plus it’s not like we haven’t seen official art of Mahoro on said bike.
