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 1/8 Mari Illustrious Makinami Pre-order!

I adore completing sets when it comes to figures, I don’t even own any of these sets but my boyfriend does and they are truly stunning figures. When they released Rei and then a matching Asuka all I wanted was a matching Mari for the set. I’m so glad that they finally released her as she looks amazing for the set but also I’m ADORING how they went with the green test plugsuit instead of the pink suit. The Max Factory Pink suit is stunning but I didn’t want another pink suit for Mari.

This green is a wonderful and really doesn’t get enough love if you ask me. You can remove her glasses but in all honesty I think she looks much better with the on.

Kotobukiya really has turned things around in my book from years past, they really are pumping out quality figures more and more.

My favorite part about the figure set is how their bases line up. Now when I say set I don’t mean you can buy hem as a set, you have to buy them separately but getting them all together looks so amazing! I’m curious if they’ll release Shinji and Kaworu to go with this set. Knowing my boyfriend he’d pass on the boys since he doesn’t like the boys as much. If they do release them, and they look amazing, I’d most likely get them myself for the set since I always do love good figures of guys. Once Mari is out I’ll do a nice review of all three together! Mari will be out around November of this year for about 6,200 yen.
