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]

Megahouse 1/8 Nanako Sakura

Flickr Link

Nanako Sakura, a lovely figure from Megahouse and my prize for Winning Runner Up the Room contest from DannyChoo.com I won 2,000 yen from Tenso.com and decided to get this lovely Nanako Sakura which i had previously canceled due to lack of funds. She was on quite an amazing sale on amazon.jp!

While i have absolutely no idea what she’s from i thought her overall design was just simply darling and lovely. Her pose and her gymnast outfit is just really cute.

The blue of her eyes just pop since she’s mostly pink, it’s just radiant!

Tugging at her outfit making sure everything is adjusted properly.

Her lovely flowing pin hair, love the black bow as it gives a nice pop of color.

The props as well are well made, from a ball, hula hoop and juggling pins that aren’t shown.

Her top portion is removable but not necessary.

I think the thing that i love the most about Nanako Sakura is her brilliant blue eyes, her hair was what interested me first but her eyes have sealed the deal.

Very glad i was able to snag her up and for a great price as well from the contest. The best part of winning that was introducing me to the wonders of Amazon.jp and Tenso.com. Amazon.jp tends to have some amazing figures for such amazing discounted prices. Plus with Amazon.jp offering free shipping on items over 2,500 yen within japan i only pay one shipping fee with Tenso.com.

    She’s very sweet looking, thou for a rhythmic gymnast shes missing her ribbon.;-)

    How was Tenso.com’s service, do they rebox the shipment or just relable?

      they don’t re-box it but open it and make sure everything is intact and such, then they just ship it out for you. they ship it EMS and if you pay the day they get it they also tend to ship it out same day. They only charge you a small handling fee but it’s usually under 900yen or so depending on the weight and size of the box.

    ugh looks good. I just lost my job so no figures for awhile…

  3. Mitoko says:

    She is quite a lovely figure. I remember seeing her a lot around the blog scene before. Her hair is my favorite part, it’s very detailed and well made <3 My favorite photo of the bunch has to be the full figure one,(the tallest one) the edges of the figure and everything came out beautifully!

    This figurine is magnificent, and I enjoyed well making my reviews, and especially my pictures of Sakura (you can find it there : http://www.shadonia.com/site/?p=1219 do not hesitate to give me your opinion^^).
    Your pictures are very beautiful,and I like the background with pea. You honor this adorable figure. I prefer, moreover, this version to Platonic Side (but especially for colors). A beautiful success of Megahouse!

    I’ve recently started looking over Yahoo Japan myself.

  7. I looooooove pink haired girls. I’ve even got a shelf in one of my Detolf cabinets devoted to them. If money wasn’t so tight I’d be happy to get Sakura for myself. But I just spent over $200 on e2046’s Dip Mou, MegaHouse’s Portgas D. Ace and Alter’s Gwendolyn.

    I’m strapped for cash for a while.

    Sakura is such a pretty figure. When I first saw her I was so amazed at how pretty she was! And your photos really reflect her beauty. The pink and red polka-dot background goes well with her hair and outfit and makes the color in her eyes and the hoolahoop look awesome! d^^b

    tl;dr: amazing figure and photos, love them!

      i love this background, what sucks is i don’t like re-using backgrounds and it’s hard for me not to want to use it again and again!

    Please dont recommend kid nemo. Items listed as “in stock” but they dont have them. They break up single order into multiple shipments, and charge you shipping every time they send you the portion of your order. They refuse to refund for the figures yet to be shipped… and they still owe me 100USD.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      they used to be my main source for figures, but lately have been lacking… but it does seem like they are trying to clean up their act bit by bit
