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]

Gift Reimu

Gfit reimu, a figure that I now own! Oh my goodness! can you believe it? I actually got a figure! Ok so it’s been a while since I’ve been able to get a figure and even still the latest figures I’ve gotten where gifts from my brother, Reimu is no exception. He’s collecting all the Griffon Touhou figures so you’ll be seeing all of those fairly soon!

I convinced him that this Gift Reimu was just too pretty to pass up but he’s not convinced so I get to keep her! Hooray!

While I’ve never played Touhou I know that Reimu is very pretty and I’ve always liked her character design, heck if I had the normal funds to be buying figures I would have bought Reimu anyways because she’s just so cute!

I love the pose with the feet pointing inwards very innocent and cute that way!

She has just the sweetest face and a very cute smile!

Love the detail of the swirlies in her ribbon and on her collar, also love the bright contrasting yellow of her scarf to go with the rest of her red dress!

She’s got a cute Ying Yang base which while a little plain isn’t too plain compared to the Griffon Touhou figures and also i love how it’s small so it won’t take up too much space!

No panties but bloomers! Very cute touch, nice difference to see bloomers and not crazy barely there panties.

close up of her ribbon, very cute and I love how it even has the folds that her ribbon would have!

even her hands are adorable!

I LOVE Reimu! She’s really my kinda figure, not too sexy, but cute. While I’ve never had a problem with sexy I realize i have a soft spot for cuter innocent looking figures. Maybe it’s because I’m a girl but i just really feel much more comfortable with cute figures. But then I also love my badass female figures too,who doesn’t love a woman who can kick ass? So overall with Reimu, I think she’s amazing, my brother is a huge fan of Touhou and really only gave her up since He’d rather just have the entire collection through griffon and not more than one character but I’d say go for it! She’s really lovely and so well made, but then the track record Gift has left us so far has been nothing but amazing work!

    Nice, you got a Touhou figure!
    I decided that I wasn’t gonna go there with Touhou. No Touhou figures in my collection.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      fixed it for you ^^ well she is just too cute for me to not want, i’m glad my brother ended up not liking her ^^

  2. OTOhime says:

    Touhou is really difficult O_o I can’t get very far even on the easiest setting XD” Reimu looks really cute (and I only say “looks” because there’s pretty much zero CANON info on the characters[/rant]) but my favorite designs are Youmu, Flandre, and Marissa^^

  3. JamDeltaV says:

    Nice review!Really like the pose also.

    So your brother is collecting all the Griffon touhou figures? Those are pretty nice figures so that’s a neat goal.

    Not sure if I’d want to do the same, however I am tempted to try for all the touhou nendos.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      the nendoroids are so adorable! I’m trying to convince him that he should get those too!

  4. This was a nice Reimu figure, but something about her proportions always bothered me. Not sure what it is. Maybe the head’s too big? Legs too short?

    As for Touhou figures, I’ve got none yet but I might hunt down Griffon’s Yuyuko. And if they ever make a Tenshi Hinanai figure that looks nice I’ll pick that up.

  5. Solorath says:

    Wow, I just love that face. :3 I tend to go for cute over sexy as well, but then my collection aint big at all. It is steadily growing tho. 😛 Love her pose and it goes well with the miko dress. And her hands really are cute, nice you pointed that out wouldn’t even pass my mind while looking at her otherwise. ^^ Don’t think bases need to be all that grand, if so then it really needs to be incorporated into the figure well and that sure makes it more awesome, but plain ones lifts forth the figure. 😛

    Don’t really know anything about Touhou other than that the character design is really nice and that the music is awesome. Would like to try it out some time but seems way too hard. Even so I already have a favorite character of Touhou, Flandre, which really got to me through a wallpaper. :3

    • Dancing Queen says:

      see i like either functional bases or ones that are well detailed. I hate the old boring bases that take up way too much space

  6. Flip says:

    Damn how could he not like her, the sculpt is damn good and she’s so lovely. I like the frills look in PVC form. Wish I owned her.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      the frills look on pvc is something that I always loved, how they can make plastic look so much like cloth!

  7. Persocom says:

    Great figure, I wouldn’t mind getting her myself. I checked every one of those sites you listed, and none of them seem to sell her though :/

  8. shinkawa says:

    Cute!! She was one of my favourite touhou figure when i saw her at Wonder Festival

  9. CainHyde says:

    Nice review.
    Btw, I love the flower background that you used in this review. ^^
    Especially in the last photograph, I think it fits Reimu.
    That’s my favorite photograph from this picture.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      I love flowers so much and they really do compliment the figures, I just hope i don’t overuse them

  10. pedropinilla says:

    Yeah, maybe you like this kind of figures more because you’re a girl but at least in Japan the “loli” figurines are way popular with male collectors than mature ladies (that is my taste, the second of course XD).

    And talking about this Reimu in particular, obviously, she is cute and lovely and her bloomers fit perfectly (panties wouldn’t have been good on this one), she deserves you to like her.
    But she has nothing to do into my collection, too innocent you know.


    • Dancing Queen says:

      see my collection really varies, from sexy, to badass, to innocent so she’ll find some place to fit in

    eeeeeee reimuuuuuu lovely lovely armpit reimuuuu
    I really want her sobsob but I can’t find anywhere that has her for a cheap price OTL

  13. Miette-chan says:

    I love Gift’s Reimu as well, I instantly fell in love with her face add that to Reimu being my favorite Tohou girl and it was a sealed deal for me. I really like Reimu’s design and the inclusion of the bloomers was a nice touch.

  14. kimaguresan says:

    I really want this one, sadly I don’t have money for figures at the moment. I hope I still have the opportunity to grab her. huhhuhuhh grab her. She is quite pretty, nice photos.

  15. ddh4mster says:

    Very lovely figurine indeed 🙂 and
    the yin-yang base is great and definitely is a plus points comparison against the griffon ones you reviewed in the past ^^b

    This Reimu figure is so adorable! Such lovely details, and a great pose. 😀
