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]

Loaned Figures; Kotobukiya 1/8 Riannon

More loaned figures for me, I’ve got some great friends and this past Saturday my good friend Daniel brought over tons of figures for me to take pictures of for review! First off we’ve got the lovely Kotobukiya Riannon from Tears To Tiara.

Now I haven’t purchased a Kotobukiya Figure other than the Kotobukiya Yoko in a long time. Part of me felt their quality was lacking but Daniel has shown me otherwise with these new figures of his.

He’s a huge fan of Kotobukya figures, not only for the figure quality but for there price. They tend to be a tad cheaper than some of the other major figure companies out now.

The detail and color on this amazing Riannon figure is just stunning!

Her ensemble is just so adorable!

Such a beautiful flow to her clothes, so natural and smooth.

Even the coins on her sash are so intricate and detailed!

Awesome design on the staff!

I have to say, I’m very much sold on this figure! Once I get some funds back up again I’m so getting my own to be in my collection!

Her hat is also magnetic and stays on really well!

Such a cute face!

I’m glad to have been able to get the chance to get my hands on Riannon, She’s lovely and stunning and I doubt I would have had a chance otherwise. It’s nice to see other people’s figures and see and understand what beauty they see with those figures. Even after I’m able to get back on my feet and review my own figures, I’ll continue this series of Loaned Figures since it’s giving me a chance to get my hands and see what other figures are out there that I may have missed myself! Would i have purchased this figure beforehand? No. But now after seeing her in person, holding her and getting to take in every angle of her? YES!

    It’s a nice figure and I like the coins, but I just find the base a bit too boring. It would’ve been nice if they’d done something with it.

  2. Ami says:

    I like Riannon a lot. I decided to get her after I got the nendoroid. She has a lovely smile and as you’ve stated her clothes flow beautifully. It’s too bad Kotobukiya has started to charge higher prices for their new figures now. Something about Kotobukiya USA coming to a close? I don’t really know. 🙁

  3. Flip says:

    I don’t like it, her face just seems really blank to me. Kinda like derp derp derp. Yeah but good pics none the less.

      To each there own of course, I guess even seeing her in my photos might not do her all the justice she deserves

  4. lovelyduckie says:

    I love a lot of things about her, but in the end I couldn’t stand her base and sold her.

  5. janai says:

    Looks pretty good. If I saw this at a con, I’d pick it up. The base is kinda annoying but I’d deal with it.

    Great site btw. I’ve been looking for a good figure site for some time, and this seems to be perfect.
