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]

At The Beach Again! Double Wave Swimsuit Yoko

Flickr Link

Such a day! Went to my brother’s place to take some pictures, but he got in a pissy mood and kicked us out. 🙁 So my dad was so mad he decided to take us to the beach, which was very good since I was planning on doing a shoot with these Yoko figures at the pool and instead got the beach! Which is really just so much better than a silly pool!

Of course i have both versions of this Yoko figures, first we are starting with the regular edition of the Wave Swimsuit Yoko. I was just so excited when they announced the PVC of this figure. I always loved the resin kit they made of her and to find out that I could own her myself in PVC form i was just super excited!

Such a cute face and I adore this pose! It’s a nice sculpt and while there are noticeable seam lines since ti’s Yoko I’ll forgive it.

This figure isn’t all that great compared to regular figures. If she weren’t Yoko i might not like her, however she is Yoko so I love her!

Regular version has no tan lines, and a Red arm band.

While Limited Edition has tan lines and a White arm band.

I of course was going to get both, but if you ask me to choose I’d say Limited, I adore the tan lines. It seams so much more realistic since there is no way for her to walk around everywhere in her regular skimpy attire  and not have some form of tan lines.

I love how she holds her shorts and belt. Small things like that are what i adore in figures like these.

I’m not entirely happy with this shoot, I was in a bit of a hurry since my parents were hungry and it was cold and I only noticed once it was too dark and too late that I really only took these from one angle. You can’t really see much and it frustrates me. I’ll most likely go and re-shoot these so you can see much better angles on these lovely Yokos. I also didn’t realize the settings were changed when my brother’s friend had played with my camera and the ISO was set at a terrible setting for this kind of shoot. I have s habit of leaving my camera exactly where i like ti and then someone changes it and i forget to check and change it back. >_< Otherwise you’ll have to take my word that these both Yoko figures are simply wonderful. Now you do have to take in full consideration how biased I am towards Yoko. So minor flaws that would be pointed out and criticized in normal figures go overlooked when it comes to Yoko. If you are looking for a Yoko Swimsuit figure she’s the one to get. If you are looking for Yoko in General there are a few other choices you could get that would be better. Or if you are just as die hard a fan as I am then you must ow these two!

    the photo’s look good

    I know what it’s like rushing a photo shoot, but eventually after much practice you’ll be able to do a complete photo shoot in 10-15 minutes. So how many Yoko’s is this now?

    I thought the shoot turned out alright. It looks as though there was a beautiful sunset across the water where it kinda matched the overall surrounding.

    Two piece figures shot at the beach are always lovely.

    Great pics !

    For your brother, maybe he was doing some hanky panky with a lady when you came ^^

  8. Johnny says:

    great photo shoot. both figures are actually on sale at hobbylink japan. the regular edition is 50% off and the limited edition is 40% off. I would get them, but saving up for the figures i’ve pre-ordered.

    @The Geek:
    the more Yokos the better!


    normally i do a shoot pretty quickly, but something about my parents standing behind me complaining of hunger made me loose my concentration and i did a subpar job 🙁

    yes it was close to sunset but not close enough that i could show it without blidning you all

    i actually got mine from amazon.jp and tenso and got them for even cheaper than what HLJ has them on sale for! but they raised the prices back up so they are cheaper on HLJ

    more like that comment reminded me that i hadn’t done their review yet!

    i doubt that about my brother

    i’d get them, who knows when you’ll find them for that price again!

    Awww~ Thanks for squashing my dream of being physic -.-

    Lol jk XD

  11. Kanon says:

    These are such cute figures ^^ Yeah if it was someone other than Yoko the figures wouldn’t be as awesome. Yoko with tan lines is the best!

    Nice shooting ! Decorations harmonizes with both figurines. I like very much!

  13. AS says:

    Nice background. Sucks about the camera though. I’ve done beach and pool shots, I prefer beach because I get so much more areas to work with. Tan line version is better, makes it look more realistic ^^.

  14. So many Yoko figures! I’ve finally decided to ditch my “one figure per character” ban in order to raise a Nia army. Of course, since there aren’t many Nia figures I doubt “army” is the right word to use here…I guess Nia Gang or Nia Posse would be more correct.

  15. lovelyduckie says:

    I agree, I like how Wave has her holding her pants/belt. I would have gotten this figure but I very rarely buy bathing suit figures. I much prefer figures in exotic outfits or just their normal clothes.
