Mikuru's close encounter part II

For those few people that wondered what ever happened to Mikuru after her close encounter, here you go.

A continuation from last year's Halloween post.

Soooo, I totally wanted to make this post for Halloween but here we are almost a month later.

Actually would have done this sooner but really wanted the original Giger Aliern revoltech, wanted that facehugger a lot. However, for some reason the price on that revoltech shot up really high, going for as much as $120+ USD, a price that is too much for a single revoltech in my opinion. I wonder why, wonder if it was because Prometheus got released or something. Nevertheless I was able to acquire it second hand from AmiAmi for pretty much retail price, sure makes me happy I lost all those auctions.

I totally did not document the lighting set up I used for the first part I did last year, so I had some mishaps trying to recreate something similar I was happy with. That's why this time I documented right away so I wouldn't forget.  You can go take a look to see my rather unique set up for it.

Also, I broke Kyon's camera holding hand, that makes me very sad.

Well then until next time. 

 

Kirino gets in trouble with the law!

I bet no one sees what lesson Kirino learns coming at all.

So recently I received my Kuroko figma.  Waited pretty much all of last year since the game she comes bundled with kept getting delayed.

The game itself is a visual novel with some quick time events here and there using some rather nice 3D models. While I'm not fluent in Japanese I can vaguely understand what's going on... except Kuroko, I can't for the life of me understand anything she says other than her sentence ending "desu no".

Now that the setting is... er... set... we turn to Kirino.

I found these figma sized cola cans a while back, been wanting to use them forever now. Glad to see that I finally get to use them.

Hopefully this sequence of events is not too obtuse.

Also, hmm, what a familiar arm band, what a familiar gun too.

"Nice shooting there, son."

Yes, I know what you are thinking, the can in the air part was magic... or if you are exilehero, why is the can still in one piece?

I bet if you watched the movies as a kid, I bet you tried to do this. I tried, it's really hard actually.

Hopefully the gif played for you and loops, if not, make sure to open it in another window to see it.

Alright, who actually guessed anywhere close as to what lesson Kirino learned?

Also, this was pretty much just a shout out to this scene from Robocop 2.

To end it off, a nice PSA from Robocop!

It's been a while since I mentioned it so, don't forget to subscirbe to the RSS feed, our follow me or exilehero on twitter. All those lovely links can be found on the footer of any page.

Mikuru's close encounter!

Who is up for some vaguely Halloween themed post? Aliens are totally scary and Halloweenish right? Did I ever mention I'm a big Aliens fan? Specifically the second movie.

They are coming out of the walls! They are coming out of the god damned walls!

Yeah... been wanting one of these since last Novemeber. Back then  I ended up choosing the Futari wa Precure girls over this guy here.

Good thing for me Revoltechs get re-releases every now and then.

I feel fulfilled now, been wanting to do this little idea for months now.

I will leave you with this gif of some test photos I took.

Happy Halloween and so forth!

A day out

A group of familiar faces, performing a familiar scene.

Kira!

I always wondered, how does Biri Biri manage to not get hurt when she kicks the vending machine. I mean that has to hurt right?

Due to the recent string of vending machine vandalism the owners hired the Imouto security agency.

Ah slip, I sure hope there is nothing above.

You know it took me some effort to get over the no pants thing on Strike Witches.

"This!" Requires a serious expression apparently.

Alright who didn't see this coming? I mean, it is Miyafuji after all.

Hmm... I wonder if Mikuru is even conscious.

CNN9 Special Report

CNN? 9? Strongest? Why does that ring bell? I heard Cirno encountered some passing by magician or something.

Hey! Convenient, someone asked to see a certain level 5 esper recently.

This is so totally not Gensokyo though.

Speaking of level 5's I would like an Accelerator and Mugino figma.

Say, both Yuki and Aya said it was evening right? Sure looks like day to me.

Ah! I wonder who that tipster was.

What's with that face Biri Biri? What where you looking at in that cellphone?

Ahem! Trying to subtly pretend that expression didn't happen huh?

I am a Biri Biri fan. All thanks to the Sister's arc in the Railgun manga. More on that latter though.

Gee, I wonder who would ask such a thing? I bet this fan already knows the answer though.

That reminds me, I anxiously await the figma of this fan.

Man, I can almost hear Aya snicker or something. Wonder why she is writting down her findings.

Indeed, I wonder how. Aya is the fastest so it must have escaped our eyes.

Hmm... wasn't that interview a little on the short side?

Looks like the connection was lost.

Not a single word from you huh? Yuki.

Hey, I remember that. Huh? You are just moving on like that?

Wait? A fight like that is just a brawl?

Now an extra, behold my wonderful set up for these pictures!

This photo shoot was not without casualties. I lost one of Sakuya's stickers, sigh. Also Aya fell from my desk and ended breaking a joint somehow. Luckily enough I have spares thanks to a previous broken figma.

One last thing, Aya has in my opinion one of the catchiest themes in Touhou.
