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]

The Snow White Water Fairy Alicia Florence

Ara Ara, looks like another review today, I’m on a roll lately when it comes to my photo shoots. That does have to do with the fact that class got postponed another week so now I’ve got more time one my hands.

This black and White photo reminds me (since we do black and white photos of babies too), today I had the worst day at work. I happened to get this really irate mother who just wasn’t happy with anything at all today.

The moment i got tot work i just knew i was in trouble since she just started yelling at me, the nurses and anyone in her way.

There was some miss communication between the weekend photographer and this mother and she thought i was arriving earlier than i normally do. So since i arrived late according to her she was furious.

I did my best to calm her down and then proceeded to take her baby pictures and she just was not happy with anything at all. She hated the pictures, the pricing of out packages and our selection.

She seemed to be mad at the world yet decided to take it out on me. :'(

But I’ve always been good at customer service and dealing with angry customers so i did my best to re-take the pictures for her (even when her baby girl did not want to cooperate at all), then i helped her pick the best package for her price range and for her needs.

By the end she was happy again and calm as a cucumber, that and her husband had finally come in and calmed her down.

He was quite embarrassed that his wife had caused such a scene and apologized to me after wards.

Sometimes you get people who are just so mean to you but they don’t always mean to take it out on you really, they might just be having a terrible day and need someone to vent their frustrations on.

Even though she had a beautiful baby girl i just hope that in the future she doesn’t act like that with her new baby girl.

Cause she was pretty scary when she was yelling, for a second i thought she was gonna hit me.

Have some Aria Sachou to lighten the mood. Punyaa~

While it was a tough day it work the positive is that it helped me realize how nice the nurses are, after i came out that mother’s room they all came to me and asked how i was doing and told me they were worried about me.

I was fine by then but it was nice for them to care about how this woman was treating me. Looks like this is the first time something like this has happened before.

But hopefully no more situations like this happen, and if anything i know i have the support of the nursing staff to back me up!

On the subject of Alicia Florence, i used to think she was from Good Smile Company but not only does her box say Max Factory on it, Good Smile’s own site lists her as a Max Factory figure. She’s one i had to track down after watching Aria. I knew i had to have her somehow but with her being sold out almost everywhere it was a mad dash to try and find her for a decent price. Most places listed her as $100USD+ or had her listed as pre-order and made you pay up front. Finally i found her on eBay for a decent price and was so happy to get her! She truly is an amazing figure and is one of my favorite figures in my collection. She’s one of the more beautiful figures in my collection as opposed to moe, or sexy or cute. What i love about aria is how the character design isn’t obviously sexy, they could have done much more to make the seifuku have more cleavage or show more legs. but they stayed with demure and it really helps you see Alicia’s inner beauty. Not that she isn’t pleasing on the eyes on the outside as well. Aria Sachou is also a very nice touch to the figure. I just hope that in the future Max Factory or Good Smile Company decide to continue with the Aria figures and make the rest of beloved Undines.

    I’m disappointed, i was hoping that this mess with this hysteric chick will finish with some bloodshed but no… SHAME ON YOU FAKE YOKO FANGIRL !

    j/k πŸ˜‰

    Oh, and for release the frustration, we have this wonderful thing called “sexuality”, i hope you said this to her husband before they gone home because one day she could meet someone less patient as you.

    Great review, thanks for sharing

  6. Dancing Queen says:

    they need to make them badly, it’s not like it wouldn’t be popular either

    thanks on the boats, she’s really so pretty and lucky and finding it locally

  7. Yowch! That must have been a scary experience. x_x

    I have to agree, this is one of the nicest looking figures out there. The sculpt and pose are just wonderful.

  8. Stripey says:

    Alicia is one of my favourite MaxFac bishoujos. It’s a pity they didn’t release more of the Aria girls. I’d have lurrrrved an Alice figure. πŸ™‚

    This is such a nice figure. And, nice use of your props in the background!

    I believe Maxfactory and Goodsmile are the same company, not sure on the details.

  11. Dancing Queen says:

    @Coco the Bean:
    the pose is perfect, it just screams alicia-san~

    an alice figure would be just awesome, with maa sachou

    yeah, i wanted to take her to long beach by the boats, but haven’t had time, so i opted to use props instead…

    max factory just makes the figures, good smile is their distibutor. but the confusion is that Good Smile also makes figures as well. So while they are tech. two seprate companies Good Smile is the one that handles the distrobution of both companies figures.

  12. Kel says:

    Ah Alicia! She’s really a wonderful character. πŸ™‚ GSC captured her perfectly.

    Even though it was such a bad experience, now you’re more… experienced? :/

    I need to get back to that show… I watched the first episode but, never got back to it. The pictures look great. I like the background and props you used.

    Oh, I’m glad I read your reply to Potato, I never understood that before. ^_^’

    they really did an amazing job of capturing her personality within her poes and face and everything

    Aria is truly an amazingly beautiful anime and while it is a slow kind of slice of ife, it’s so amazing and beautiful.

  15. ShadowKit says:

    Great shoot! I love the boats you used. <3

    I really hope they re-release this one now that Aria’s finally out here in America. I’ve been an Aria fan for a year and a half now, but I only started collecting figures recently, so I missed this one (as well as all the other good Aria figures Dx ). Hopefully I’ll be able to find it someday, since this has been one of my favorite figures, and Alicia is such a wonderful character in the seasons of Aria. <3
