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]

Simon and Lagann Dig Their Way Out

So i’ve had this model for a while and thought hey might as well take pictures of it. There aren’t enough reviews of this out in the blogosphere that i know of so i thought hey it’ll be fun.

First off please forgive me and my lack of story telling. I’m a terrible writer so i hope the pictures speak more than I could…

Hey guys I’m Simon! This is my Lagann, we like to dig and climb and fight giant beast men. Today we went for a walk but we got stuck in this ditch and i can’t seem to get out.

As you can see it’s not that high but the walls aren’t good for climbing.

I tried to use the drills to climb…

…But it was just didn’t work.

We ended up falling and pretty bad too.

Then we gave it one more try!

Instead of trying to climb we decided to just do what we do best! Dig our way through!

After some hard work and some tough drilling…

…We made it to the top of the mountain!

Now to just rest and relax!

All silliness aside it’s a good model, I’m not the typical Model buyer so i can’t really judge it since i haven’t seen many others. But being the Huge GL fan that i am i had to own this. I’m also going to be trying my hand at Building Models and get the rest of the GL family. I Will say it’s really detailed an it comes with lots of little things to play with. Two sets of hands, drills, two faces, and Simon. It also comes with a Black base with is awesome since it helps to make some awesome poses. While it’s possible to pose him without the base it’s a pain in the ass. For any die hard fan of GL this is a must have, but for a casual fan this might need a bit more consideration since the price is a bit steep.

—Photography Notes—

I think this came out rather well, the lighting was pretty nice and while it took me some time to pose Lagann it was a fun shoot and i think that this shoot is one of the best i’ve done!

    Very nice model. I’ve been reading the blog for a while, and you always put and say all this cool things about Gurren Lagann, so now… after watching the 1st episode i got hooked ^^ .

    Its just that the animation is sooooo good, and i don’t know, there’s so many other things that make this show awesome. I’m now at episode 9 (pretty sad couple of episodes T_T) i think im gonna pull an all nighter and try to watch it ALL! ๐Ÿ˜› .

    Well anyways… awesome pics like always, and thx for getting me to (subliminally) watch the show =) .
