Sorry for the lack of posts, especially on the last day of 2008 and the first day of 2009. I had a lot to do (and no it wasn’t for playing WoW), a family problem also came up, and the weather hasn’t been really great, you’ll see what I mean.
Well…I think everyone knows this figure of Blanc Neige from Kotobukiya which was presented to us around May or April of last year, can’t quite remember it. One of the best figures by Kotobukiya no doubt about that, if they keep this up they’ll reach the same level of Alter and GSC.
If you have been reading some comments here you’ll notice some questions about the weather, is it always blue and sunny like that, and so on and so on. Well it’s not always blue and sunny you know, after Christmas we got some really bad weather in terms of rain but especially fog, I can’t remember ever getting such dense fog for so many days, sometimes it only happened for one day but this took almost a week always like this (picture below), so you can see the weather here can be ugly sometimes and today was no exception but without the fog.
Onto the figure. The details can be viewed in both ways, simple and cute or very detailed and still cute. I like everything on her although the hair could be a bit more detailed but sometimes the most simple things are the best.
Its hard to believe no one picked this beauty at Jikai, this is one of the things that happens there, for more about this read the previous post.
The cape in my Neige is a bit weird, probably a defect caused by pressure because her cape is not wide open, its touching her right foot and it shouldn’t be. I tried fixing it but I was afraid of breaking it.
One interesting aspect is that she is fixed to her base with a screw, I never seen one figure that has come attached to the base itself.
Neige without her cape, don’t know if I like her more with or without it ^_^
Definitely one of her strong points is that leg :)
Compared to Kan’U and Chou’un she’s not very photogenic, what I mean is, she doesn’t to many angles to shoot
This is one of those situations that I grab the figure, hold her with one hand pointing at the sky and then shoot with the other hand while holding the heavy DSLR :P
Looking to the town in the middle of the mountain ^^
Still thinking which one should go next, Chua Churam or Reinforce?!?! Anyway I’ll decide it when the times is more appropriate, the weather is better and after I get married. You can see more of her at happysoda and exelica-meteor
PS: I’m not getting married, that was a joke xD
