Makoto is one of my grail figures, I was so overjoyed when I finally acquired her.
I immediately wanted to take photos of her in the snow, alas I do not live in area snowy enough. Thus I was happy getting some unusual snow during the last gasps of winter and took this photo. I want to take a photo of Makoto when snow is actually falling but for now I think my itch has been scratched a little until the day I am able to.
Today I just wanted to give a quick heads up.
A while back I made a post regarding Sakura Doujin's Project Snap_Fig. The idea behind that project was to produce a photo book filled with some nice figure photography and most interestingly also provide some in depth look at how these pictures are taken. This not only includes things like camera settings but also some nice behind the scenes look at what went into producing these pictures.
So, why bring this up again?
That's simple, they have launched their crowd funding campaign in order to make this book a reality. You can head over to Indiegogo to see the crowd funding page and read all about the different tiers of contributions and all the rewards you can get.
As you can see in the sample pictures of the book, my photos of the lovely Misaka's got chosen from my submissions. Furthermore, since this is an Indiegogo campaign even if their goal is not met and you provide a pledge you won't end up empty handed. So if you ever wanted to know how photos like that are produced or you simply want a nice photo book or some of the other perks why not give them a few bucks.
Today I wanna give you a quick look at my current work space at home.
Last winter I moved out into my own place so it gave me a chance to have a clean start with a lot of things, one of which was my desk. One of the biggest problems I had at home was lack of space. I collect figures as you all know but I am also and avid gamer and have hundreds of games in my collection and along with the dozens and dozens of figures made things a bit crowded.
That's one the reasons I never bought anime merchandise. It's not that I didn't like memorabilia from the shows that I watched, it's not that I didn't like having posters in my wall I just didn't have the space.
Now though, I have all the space in the world.
With that said, I figured I would start with something actually practical.
Before, I had a glass desk that has now been replaced with a normal wooden desk. I was afraid the paint would start to strip away from my use of the mouse so I decided I would buy a mouse pad to prevent it. What better start to buy some anime merchandise than to get one of the staples of otakudom, the boob mouse pad.
I had been mildly interested before but never found one that I liked enough. When I saw Nyarko though, I knew this was the one, this would be my mouse pad. After a couple of months of waiting for its release I finally have it in my possession.
I gotta say I am impressed, it is soft yet firm, it provides the perfect amount cushion... it actually does remind me a lot of real breasts... just a bit less warm.
In this turned based, tactical RPG, there exists a system in which units get closer to each other if they fight together; eventually leading to marriage. There also exists a custom character that is supposed to represent yourself in the game. So I did what any sensible person would do and married the creepy stalker. In reality the choice was really hard because Awakening has many beautiful girls, all which are really sweet in their own ways. Anyway I chose correctly because my in-game wife would eventually get a figure and here it is:
I was supposed to take photos that were closer to a review but I was having too much fun and just took what I wanted.
It may seem I went for Tharja for her looks alone but she's actually really nice and a bit shy in the game, if you ignore the whole dark magic hexes and stalking. No wait that's kinda neat too. She also has a really nice laugh "Fufufu".
You don't really notice at first glance but Tharja has quite a bust. In the game you don't notice either since she's always holding a big grimoire close to her chest. It's not till they mention her "boing-y" parts in a side skit that you realize her assets.
The right hand sucks. She has sausage fingers and the ring that is supposed to go on her finger just kinda hovers on her knuckle.
This figure's all about legs.
10/10 would marry again. (except for the knuckle)
All these poses have left me wanting to see more of her so I'm off look for pictures at gelbooru.
