Time for a yet another idol figure! I’m actually not much of an idol fan, but there is something about the designs of idols in anime/manga, or in this case, voice generating software that still makes their figures rather attractive. Here we have Luka Megurine (made by Stronger) sitting on a cherry blossom tree while wearing a gorgeous kimono.
For some time I’ve wanted to see if I could manage a pitch black background so I gave it a shot for this figure thinking it could look great in print, and even though I’d like to think I managed very well I still think this figure deserves to have a proper garden, preferably a Japanese garden, or vegetation as background. So while I wait for spring to be in full bloom where I live I hope you will enjoy these shots of this wonderful figure in the meanwhile.
I decided to join in on the official Figma contest by Good Smile Company for the 10th anniversary of the figma brand. I’ve uploaded previous creations to Instagram but unsure about the rules I decided to take new photos too. So here I present to you Emiya Shirou inside his Reality Marble and we get to follow him for a brief moment as he makes ready to fight a more powerful opponent.
346 Production were nice enough to invite me to one of their practice sessions for two of my favorite idols, Shibuya Rin and Shimamura Uzuki. I thought it’d be just like any other daily practice session of theirs, but I got to witness something quite entertaining. I will present it to you in the form of a comic.
I’ve shifted these anniversary posts till the end of the year instead of October 10th, which is Figure.moe’s birthday, since it suits better to summarize a year gone by at the end of a year. I don’t have a video this year like I’ve done the previous years since I’ve been focusing my time on other stuff than my photography and the blog. But next year I’ll make a video for year three and four! (No promises.) Read on for a summary of the past year.
The sun is shining, it’s hot and barely any wind; What to do? Go to the beach, of course!
I brought two figures new to my collection for a trip to the nearest beach and it felt good to be back to shooting figure photos again. First my favorite lens broke and secondly I’ve been busy moving till now, so it’s been about three months without doing any figure photos. Doesn’t mean I didn’t get any new figures though. I stumbled upon a figure of Nanao Yuriko by Phat Company one day on the internet and I just knew I had to get this one. She’s gorgeous, beautiful and cool, all at once. I’ve also recruited Kirino Kousaka to my collection. Let’s see what these two girls can do at the beach!
Spring has come and gone. Things around us constantly change, sometimes when we’re not ready for it, so we tend to sit back and contemplate about what has happened and what is going to come. And if there’s someone who looks like she’s always thinking about stuff it’s my figure of Yukino Yukinoshita by Kotobukia.
But metaphors and wise words aside, the real reason I choose to have a photoshoot with Yukino in spring is because I realized I haven’t done a photoshoot with her until now, so it was about time. Maybe that’s why she’s been looking so displeased all this time.
Is everyone enjoying their Valentine’s day? I myself have been working overtime instead, not by choice though. But I have managed to unbox some new figures and take, er, one photo of them!
Rin Tohsaka is showing how it’s done properly! If you really want your loved one(s) to know your feelings then there’s 1) make sure you let them know (don’t keep it to yourself), 2) don’t lie about how much you love them (notice Rin made a lot of hearts) and 3) tell them sooner than later (they’re still in school but Rin waited till it was evening). I’m not sure if Emiya Shirou is overwhelmed or just surprised cause Rin slammed the basket onto the table.
In any case, I for one think Rin is really cute like this, she’s one of my favorite characters after all!
