Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Max Factory Shirakawa Kotori

Here we are with my newest photo shoot! Max Factory’s Shirakawa Kotori. She was a figure i had to add to my collection and i’m glad i was able to get my hands on her. I had finally seen Da Capo and loved Kotori as a character and knew i had to get this figure. She’s an older figure and but you can see that Max Factory had Quality as a priority from the start with their figures.

I’m still quite sick but i can’t sleep, i know i need as much rest as i can get but i felt like i was wasting a perfectly good day. So i went out and did this shoot today. The first picture is actually her in a flower pot of my mothers but none of the other pictures came out as well as that one did.

I then took the rest of the pictures in a planter in the middle of my yard. Thankfully my mom has an amazing green thumb and there are a plenty of flowers and greenery to work with.

I notice the majority of my pictures have to do with floweres but they just look so great.

Obligatory Panty shot!

Even the detail on her boots is amazing, by the way she’s screwed into her base.

All in all she’s an amazing figure. if you liked Da Capo she’s a figure to own.

    I like your collection. Have you seen the 1/8 Yuki Nagato Cat Ver PVC? (Available at KidNemo). Her outfit changes color based on the temperature 😮

    Flowers make always a great scene for pictures ^^ Great job again!
    aaah~ Kotori-chan. Such a wonderful girl, love the character as well. But I still dont have decided yet whether I want this figure or not xD
    But now she looks a bit “old” compared to new Max F. figures…

    nice figure, DQ! heh I like the shot with the red flowers. they seem to complement her tie and hair. she does have a lot of nice details, like the shoes and the school satchel.

  5. Adun says:

    Oh wow this figure brings back a lot of memories. Shame my photography skills were lame back when I took her photos and she deserves better. Plus back then I was ecstatic about her release, lol.

    Nice shots, although the figure could have a better work on its face.

    MaxFac’s Kotori is undoubtedly the best Kotori figure there is out there 🙂 Great buy and get well soon!

    I think flowers are always great in shots, adds lots of color and vibrancy to the shoot, though of course, it’s very much dependent on which figure that’s the subject of course xD In this case, it works perfect!

    Have always favored the Shirakawa line more then any other characters in DC, though oddly, I never really did get into collecting DC figures like I did with TH2 figures. Maybe subconsciously, I’m telling myself TH2 is already massacring my wallet, heh.

    I’m hoping to at least one day have Nanaka though =) Kotori is great as well, but this Max Factory rendition feels too slender for me =/

    i did see it but i’m not too keen on the change colors idea. I’m worried that the colors might eventually set at one color.

    she’s really an awesome figure to get. as a figure collector i’m surprised you don’t even have her yet!

    That was my favorite picture out of the entire set. I wish i was able to do more with that plant but none of the other pictures looked as great.

    well then why not do a re-shoot? I’d be eager to see another Kotori shoot, there aren’t many out there.

    her face actually seems to look great compared to 2d kotori, at least to me ^_^

    Kotori is a fan favorite, i just had to own her! and thanks for the get well!

    ia it me or do the Shirakawas seem to be doomed to be unsuccessful in their endeavors of love? I have yet to see To heart2… I KNOW I KNOW I’M TERRIBLE I NEED TO GET A START ON IT! and i agree Kotori is very thin compared to the majority of my other PVC ladies.

    very lovely colors, I love the color balance between the figurine and the background 🙂

    did you take the picture with DSLR? lens need a litle bit of cleaning, there’s dust attached to the sensor ^^; can see it from this pictures: kotori (15) on her right thigh, kotori (19) her elbow, kotori (14) her skirt, and so on 😀

    omg yes i do and yes i noticed how filthy the sensor was afterwards during the Mahoro shoot. 🙁 I still wasn’t even able to clean it properly until my dad got home and he helped out

  12. Rin says:

    I own this figure. It seems a lot of people like the Shirakawa family. Kotori and Nanaka seems to be the most popular DC characters.
    Nice shots!!! Love the background you used for the shoot!!!
