Hello! I’m back for what is apparently my monthly blog post. Today was unseasonably warm, so I decided to snap a few photos of nendoroid Elise who I got last week!
All of the photos from this set that I kept ended up using the same expression, so I’ve titled this set “Elise’s Smile”.
This cutie is one of the little sisters from Fire Emblem Fates! She’s a healer, so she comes with a cute little staff.
It snowed this weekend, so I took a few shots of figures who I thought would look nice in the semi frosty(I didn’t get out until a good bit had melted) wonderland.
I keep photographing Tsurumaru in front of white things, but it’s good contrast, so JUST TRY TO STOP ME.
Howdy howdy! Today I felt like taking a few photos. I needed someone who would look good outside, and wanted to use a newer figure, so I went with Kirito and Asuna. I ended up with mostly shots of Kirito, but hey!
Howdy! I hope everyone is doing well~
It was surprisingly warm today, so I thought it a good opportunity to play with one of my newest figures: Caster!
I’ve wanted a Caster figma for years, so finally having one is a dream come true! I plan to get the nendo as well when I can.
I take most of my pictures outdoors, so winter is always a dry spell since there’s not much interesting out(snow comes not until January and February–if at all). However, the colorless grass and bright sun do make for an interesting backdrop which worked just fine for Caster. Winter light also has a uniquely pure brightness to it.
Caster is on my list of top favorite characters, so I hope I made her shine!
The figma very pretty, but her elbows are a pain to pose. Her arms are also very limited which is a shame since she’s a mage who performs magic mostly by moving…
I was all excited to have pictures for a new post, but looks like my last post was about Cordelia too ahaha. I really like Cordelia though–not as a perfect figures, but a memorable and impressive one, and that is why whenever I have the chance to get some neat photos, I go for her. Today was one of those days! One of the seasonal “events” I can rely on is a cloudy day and bright red maple leaves. Not many leaves have fallen from the tree yet, but I still used what little day light was remaining when I got home for some photos.
Cordelia is another figure I got months ago, photographed, and have not mentioned since. I’m rather indifferent towards Cordelia as a character, but I’m a huge fan of Fire Emblem Awakening, and how Tharja’s figure looked, so I went ahead and got her. I have some photos for a proper review, but in the mean time here are some portrait shots. I did full body ones, but ended up not liking any of them.
Ok, a lot of these are technically landscapes, but what I mean is they’re upper body shots. Idk I just didn’t want “Cordelia Body Shots” as a post title.
Please check the bottom of the post for the first of many figures I’m selling!
Now back to our scheduled programming
Considering how much I like Touken Ranbu and that I have 8 nendoroids from it, I’ve posted woefully little about it. And I’m going to continue doing just that for the foreseeable future. Still, a few months back when I got Ichigo Hitofuri, I snapped some pictures of him with some flowers. I also took the photos for a review which I will hopefully write some time before I die.
And by the way, for those who don’t follow my Facebook page, I’m on Instagram now! I intended for it to be a private-ish personal account, but in all honesty I never go anywhere ever, so it’s mostly pictures of figures with cosplay progress on the weekends. My name is tipsy_scales
Ok, back to flowers.
I found some Momohime pictures languishing in a folder on my computer, so let’s…let’s look at them!
Momohime has always been a treasure figure in my collection, yet I’ve never dedicated much time to posting about her. What I can confirm is that she looks good everywhere and all the time. It’s scary that a figure can be this photogenic!
Give the Hero King justice.
I have not had the chance to take many photos in the past few months, but I did a few shoots that were oddly all during cloudy weather.
So let’s um…look at them!
I feel like most of my Natsume pictures are underwhelming. Like he looks good but that’s because he’s a good looking figure. It’s not really bad. That’s just how it is. My only photos of him that I feel are exceptional are those of him in the yellow flowers.
Actually, this one isn’t bad.
I’ve yet to give Lucina a dedicated shoot. I’ve just been pulling her out while shooting pretty scenery, but it’s working so far. I need to focus more on her super cool sword fighting side. Too bad I’m terrible with fighting poses.
Colors not working out? Just do some funky editing and pretend it was intentional! Seriously most of my black and white photos are ones where the colors didn’t work. Black and white photography is an art in itself though, so ONE DAY I’ll give it some practice.
A personal favorite!
Ah I’ve hardly played with or talked about my Touken ranbu nendoroids, but I can assure you that they are WORTH IT.
These nendoroids are so well done and detailed, and their colors are bright and bold, and their faces are so elegant *sob*
And they have plenty of sideways glances! You all know how I feel about those!
Jiiji is my favorite character they’ve made into a nendoroid so far. I really want Yamatonokami Yasusada!
It’s undeniable that I went through a buy now think later phase with figure collecting last year which resulted in a lot of impulse buys. One was nendoroid Alice Cartelet here who I know NOTHING about. But you know what? I regret nothing with this purchase. I mean look at that face! And those big puffy pigtails! And the pastels! It’s like she was made for me!
Blue Asuna is a lovely figure~
Another figure I love but have still barely photographed!
And it’d be a shame to not take a cherry blossom photo with Sakura!
Thanks for looking!
I’m going to start work on some reviews next *_*
