Dammit Hollywood! Stop getting in the way of my blog!

Among other things including friends, movies, dust storms, and people calling me late at night.

It's been a while since I done one of these vaguely related pictures of figmas posts. Last one was back in March when I took out Azunyan.

One of our friends wanted to try out our cameras so we hung out at this place for a while snapping pictures away. In the end using Nikon DSLR's convinced him enough to dump his Canon camera and go for the Nikon D800.

Good choice, everyone knows Nikon DSLR's are better right? :P

Since taking pictures stimulates the stomach we went to eat out before heading to our main event for the evening.

I sure miss carrying figmas every where and taking pictures, ah the good ol' college days.

We went to watch Prometheus the much anticipated Alien "prequel" from Ridley Scott.

As a fan of the Alien franchise I was satisfied, it gave a few nods here and there to Alien which was all I really wanted from it. While me and my friend liked it for exilehero it was a snorefest apparently.

Did anyone watch it? How did you like it?

I was actually planning to do a photo shoot of Alter's loli Nanoha in her school uniform for last week's post. Since I am just not happy with the photos I took before, it's been really nagging me for months now.

Alas my plans to do so where crashed by sudden dust storm out of no where that prevented me to do the shots that I wanted outside.

To make matters worse, I was constantly kept up late at night by people calling my cell phone number thanks to some idiot who either gave the wrong number to people or lied to them and gave them mine by chance.

A sleep deprived, grumpy Miette does not lead to anything remotely considered decent pictures. All I ended up doing was messing around with using my diffuser box as a back lit background.

Going of from my fooling around I tried to do a photo shoot involving the back lit background but I ended badly messing the exposure. So I ended with a bunch of crappy under exposed pictures that I decided to give up on for a post.

Fast forward to this weekend and this time it included a failed try at doing a photo shoot for Alter's lovely and sexy recent swim suit Nanoha.

Alas, my idea for the set didn't quite work out and had to scrap the shoot since I ran out of sun and no longer had the lighting I had in mind.

Which leads to this Saturday where I spent all day giving a thorough cleaning to a good chunk of my figmas and reposing them. I been very lazy about cleaning my figmas, since I have so many of them now it makes it seem like such a chore and end up procrastinating.

Although I must say I find it strangely relaxing to clean my figures.

That was followed by hanging out with my friends again, going out for some dinner and then watching Men in Black 3. The end result was these pictures of Mirai.

 

 

There you have it, a lazy post with lazy pictures. I should really stop using my Lumix LX5 on auto and actually take proper pictures when I go out now that I look at these pictures.

I'm wondering now, do you people even care for posts like this?

Well, whatever, next week exilehero will have a nice proper post for you lovely readers.

It's nice to have a job

No worries about whether I will have money for this and that really gives me peace of mind.

The lack luster list from last time.

May

Rei sure has been delayed a lot, heck figures that where announced after her ended being released first. I hope it's not because of some production troubles or anything like that.

I wonder if I'm the only one that liked Kirino, every one else seems to be on the hate wagon when it comes to her. I have a theory that people dislike her because her mannerisms when it comes to otaku antics hit to close to home for some people.

Anyways, I do hope those crossed arms of hers fit other figmas. There is at least one other bossy girl I would like to use that pose with.

I really like this figure, it's simple,  elegant, doesn't pop up too much. Just like Kanade herself, plus because it is a simple a figure the price is not too high either.

This is probably the first and last Mirai anything I will buy as I'm not fond of her design that much.

I find this Mirai to have come back in full circle for me. If I hadn't stumbled across Danny's site 4 years ago, I don't think I would have gotten into figure collecting at all. It was because he got his hands on the original figma Yuki that I became interested in figures, 50+ figmas latter here we are.

July

This is gonna be Nanoha figure number 5, 6 if you count my Nanoha dollfie. All of those, dollfie aside are of Nanoha in several variations of her barrier jacket. A Nanoha figure in her uniform is a nice change of pace plus she has hair down giving her a different feeling.

August

I'm not a big Miku fan, I only own the original figma version after all. For some reason I found this version incredibly cute. Hell, I'm not even into glasses or anything.

Next up is the next figma in the Touhou line. The drunkard oni that loves to party, I look forward to many fun pictures with her.

Still, stupid Otacute, what's with the high mark up?

September

Finally we got Yukari, I like this figure, so Yukari like.

I been following this figure since I saw the unpainted version at some event. I was happy to see she was available at AmiAmi as well since Chen wasn't. I do hope though that as my first Phat figure she doesn't disappointmt me.

There you have it, these figures I will get for sure since I can't actually cancel any of them.

Might add some more if money is available.
