Sad to say, she’s easily the plainest of the 3 girl group. I have no idea why foobarbaz, some crazy Japanese figure reviewer, gave this a 5. Worksmanship alone is not sufficient for a max score review in my opinion! Well I’ll let you all judge for yourselves.
Hit the jump for more photos.
I got a bit more creative with the lighting. Please let me know what you think!
I really wasn’t planning on getting her, but three things happened and I ended up picking her up :P.
1. She was on sale, 30% off at LashinBang. The store has a blue logo.
2. I discovered the box was very blue and shiny :P. (In case, you haven’t figured it out, I am obsessed with blue :P)
3. I couldn’t find the Octavia figure from Tears to Tiara and didn’t want to go home empty handed. Still looking for that one btw.
Alright, let’s start off with the usual standard shots of the box.
The black wire you see curled up is really a copper wire covered with a plastic film. You have to plug it into the hole on the guitar and the hole on the pedal yourself. It takes quite a bit of work to straighten it out and get it to look right though.
After watching so much tennis, this picture, to me, looks like Yuki is doing a fist pump and cheering herself on. I wonder if fist pumps even exist in Japanese culture.
I was using the sun + manipulating my blinds to get that effect, but the sun set on me. The rest of it will have to be done with fluorescent tubes :(.
Alright now for the group pic. Again, I need to dust off my figures :(.
So there you have it. That’s Nagato Yuki Gekisou, and the set is complete! Any photography tips? I seem to be stuck in a rut and am not really improving at all.
