I recently did a new shooting with Mirai, I once wanted to put her in a bikini cause she has a supe nice body. In preparation I’ve bought a 50×80 cm board, wallpaper, drapings and some iron film, to connect the background(s) with the wooden board via magnets, I already have.

Next time I will dress her in something more modest I promise you that

As I was browsing through flickr, I got the idea of buying Mirai a bikini, a skimpy one. I looked at HobbySearch offers and ordered two, unfortunately the more interesting model was out of stock in the end and I only received the 1/4 scale bikini, keep in mind that Mirai is an 1/3 scaled fashion Doll. A first test showed that it was mostly compatible at least with her M bust.

I tried a few different poses in this shooting refering to certain anime art illustrations. Such things can be extremely helpful when you don’t know what to do for poses, lol.

The plan of buying less figures than last year works so far, although it makes the hobby more exhausting, when I decide about the pro and cons of certain figures, compare them and decide against preordering instantly, instead of ordering everything pleasant for the eye.

Some more months passed after New Preorders part 25, since then I accumulated 4 orders and that justifies a new Preorder Post, it’s part 26 of New Preorders. I will talk about my preorders and other figures that appeared recently and I consider as appealing.

Hello don’t worry I’m not completely lost in the fashion doll realm. So today I will take a look at the Kongou Battleship from Max Factory, it’s a figure based on the very popular online Game Kancolle, it is also my first figure from this franchise.

This was the first thing from Kongou and Kancolle I’ve seen, weeks later I have joined the Admirals who play this Game. It was a little difficult to get in, but it’s definetely a lot of fun.

Mirai header

As some of you might know I bought myself a Mirai SmartDoll some months ago, in September 2014. I unintentionally was holding back this post a little for different reasons, this post holds not much artistic value and is not supposed to be a review. In this post I feature the pictures I’ve taken with Mirai so far and talk a bit about my experiences with her.

A few years ago I wouldn’t have imagined to buy something like this, when I started collecting figures, I didn’t feel too excited about so called fashion dolls from Japan, as I once saw them, they seemed like a plaything for rich Otaku. I actually labeled them as creepy, I partially still do that today and emo dolls honestly scare me to death, but to each their own.

Over the years I developed a less critical opinion towards Dollfies, since you can take stunning pictures with them and make them look beautiful with new clothes and exchanging body parts. I already played with the idea of getting a Dollfie Dynamite, but I decided against it.

Onna no Ko header

The previous Wonderfestival post took most of my energy, but here is another figure review. She was recently released precisely on the 28th January 2015 and it’s actually my first figure from manufacturer Wing, a rather new manufacturer with business connections to GSC.

I already found a few figures from Wing very appealing, but I was most convinced by
Event Staff Onna no Ko, she has no real name since she’s actually an original character illlustration from Ishikei, he does very elaborate, but also rather ecchi works of pretty girls. This profile illustration was used as a mascot of the Comiket two or three years ago.
