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]

Kotobukiya 1/6 Nekomiya Nono

I love impulse buys, especially when they are on sale! It’s so hard for me to resist a good sale on figures, and i love Hobby Search’s Figure Bargain! This time i got the Kotobukiya 1/6 Nekomiya Nono, I wanna say i got her for about half price and it wasn’t hard to pass up for sure! This is the second Kotobukiya figure I’ve gotten all year, first being a pre-loved figure Kawasumi Mai.

I stopped buying Kotobukiya figures since I bought so many of them on impulse, i ended up regretting a few of those purchases.

I’m actually really happy with her even though she was a full impulse buy.

Which really does lead my to believe that Koyobukiya has raised their standards when it comes to figures.

I will also have to say that i’ve been spoiled by the quality of Good Smile, Max Factory, Megahouse and Alter figures.

I think they did an amazing job on her this time around, no noticeable seem lines, no paint hiccups.

Her pose is really cute and her face is adorable.

My only complaint is that her eyes are glossy and that is a pain to take pictures of without having a glare…

I do believe she’s my first cat-girl figure. so i went all out with the yarn in the backdrop. Been knitting like crazy to make my friends and family scarfs for Xmas this year. So i had tons of yarn to choose from.

see how great this picture would it have been, if it weren’t for that terrible glare…

I think this is my favorite picture, see no eye glare!

This is also a favorite of mine!

Oh noes, i fell and snapped this! Nah you know i just took a panty shot on purpose! Why lie to you!

Isn’t technically panties really since it’s her swimsuit.

I really do like this figure overall, for an impulse buy I’m glad i got her. She’s really cute but i forgot how i don’t really buy many 1/6 figures so she seems HUGE compared to the rest of my figures. She’s very cute and very nicely detailed. I love the contrast between the Nekomimi and the Sukumizu. Now i know absolutely nothing of the series she’s from but if you like her character of just her overall design i’d get her. But maybe not for full retail price, but then Kotobukiya still isn’t my favorite figure company. I have to say if it weren’t for the sale on Hobby Search I wouldn’t have even bothered to buy her, but i’m glad i did in the end.

    I love the background you made, I’m always just using my wall, it’s very boring… I need to try think of ways of brightening it up like you do!

    The figure is great as well… catgirl, loli, sukumizugi… it’s like a combination of at least three fetishes in one. 😛

    Impulse buy figures are the best. Apart from my Gunslinger Girl Henrietta figure all my figures have been impulse buys.

    I do pre order if its something I can’t stand the thought of missing out on. Otherwise most of my figures are ‘oh she’s pretty *click buy*’

    Good work on the background! I really like how your creativity is burtsing in that department.

    I loves Nono. I saw the OVA when it came out. Very cute. I’ve wanted this figure ever since I saw it was coming out. I just have to find somewhere to buy it…. since I can’t shop at Hobbysearch cos I dont have a credit card…..

    And yes. Kotobukiya is awesome! All the folk with mostly Alter/GSC/MF etc should look into Koto figs cos they’re nowhere near as bad as people seem to think lol.

    Ohhh, I’ve been meaning to order her from EStarland. They have her for around 35 dollars, I think. She’s adorable~ great pictures, even with all that eye glare. It’s enough to tell me that I need to buy this figure this coming paycheck. x3

  6. Dancing Queen says:

    I’m trying my best to be super creative when it comes to backgrounds but sometimes i just have o clue, this yarn idea just came to me since i was knitting at the time…

    see i like to think my purchases through since i’ve made some bad impulse buys in the past

    yeah the half price part was the best part!

    see the hing with figure collectors and kotobukiya figures is that in th past their figures were pretty bad, so after a while many of us stopped buying, but i’m beginning to think maybe they are cleaning up their act.

    eye glare is only a problem in photos really, irl it doesn’t show as much.

  7. phossil says:

    This figure its the Most Epic Moe figure of all times. I like it a lot. I’d seen the white version of this figure too and both are great.

    do you think will be released in 1/8 version??

    I’m typically don’t like posting non-unique comments, but I gotta say, that’s a cool stringy background.

    Heh, Hobbysearch owes you for posting that link to their bargain bin. I just made an impulse buy of my own.

  16. Rin says:

    I do believe that Koto has raised their standards on figures lately. A lot of them now seem to be done very well!!!
    The photos are really nicely done with the string idea. If I did a with string, my cats would come play with the string…
    A lot of impluse buys huh…same here…so many figures on sale lately… This month for now I might had spent around $500…
    Hobby Search is a prime example. Figure bargains are sometimes too good to pass…

    I’d impulse buy at Hobby Search more often if I could only choose SAL as a shipping option 🙁

    But I do love impulse shopping, in fact almost all shopping I do is on impulse. I’ve rarely had any regrets either.

    see i decided to watch it now and i don’t really have a problem with her voice

    oh the white version is really cute too

    what did you end up getting?

    figure bargains are just so awesome to pass up!

    @Otaku Dan:
    yeah a wonfes only version

    yeah Sal shipping would be a good option, but then with Ems you get the figure in just a few days

    i’m watching it now too since this figure is so cute

    thanks, i wasn’t sure it would come out nice but it came out pretty good in the end

  22. cheez says:

    Oh, I got Rozalin from Disgaea 2, done by Griffon. I’d actually forgotten about it after seeing the plans announced for it, so seeing it not only available but also on sale was pleasant.

    I must say though, Hobbysearch’s shipping costs are pretty bad. It cost me as much for shipping as it did for the figure itself. >_<
