September's Box O' STUFF// Submitted @ 10:59 PM on 10.05.2012
My September Amiami order arrives! There's really no feeling quite like seeing the telltale FRAGILE-labeled box appear before you.
Now let's see... Lots of goodies this month... Though next month is going to be huge...
First up, smexy Mami Tomoe dakimakura! She'll be staying in the bag until I get a body pillow for her. The one I sleep on has an Ika Musume knockoff one on it (that said, the quality is excellent. I'm amazed it's held up so well, and is so comfortable too. Not bad for $35) since I tend to drool a lot in my sleep, and if it's really dry I get nosebleeds. =_= I don't mind risking an inexpensive knockoff for that, but for the price of an actual daki, I won't be using it on my main pillow.
Next we have BQ Sena. She's.... well, disappointing. I know she had big boobs in the show, but on the BQ it looks like she implanted watermelons or something. It just looks kinda bleh.
She comes with an alternate hair piece depending on if you want her hair straight down, or have her in mid hair flip.
This is... well, I actually don't know. She's from Symphogear, or at least that's what the box says. DON'T CARE.
I really just got her for the awesome rapeface. :3
Next is, at long last, GSC's Kyoko Sakura. She is gorgeous, hands down. The movement of the hair and her dress are just beautifully done. Also, if you'd rather not use the spear, she has an alternate arm holding a taiyaki. (the corresponding alternate arm is just a closed hand)
Now, at LONGER last, Alter's Kneesocks! She really is a beautiful piece, though I'm a bit disappointed that the hair isn't as translucent as the promo pics led me to believe. The other thing that disappointed me is the glasses; they're wire, and are about half the thickness as the ones in the promo pics. You know these things are fragile because they give you FOUR PAIRS. Two already folded, two unfolded. If you have hamhands, you may as well just do a table-flip now. My hands aren't exactly big, and I still spent a good ten minutes or so getting the damn things in. I really wish they had just made the glasses part of the figure itself than making them a separate part.
Now, I think it's well known that I was really running out of shelf space.... so I bought a new one! Now however I'm out of space for shelves... Anyways, adding a new shelf meant I was finally able to bring out the figures trapped in their plastic prisons. :3
Kyoko and Mami currently have a shelf to themselves. I really love how the two of them look together.
Kneesocks is joining the QB girls. Also a vampire. And a little squid thing.
Sena currently has a shelf to herself, mainly because... well, I couldn't find anywhere where she didn't look bad. Seriously, those boobs are disturbing from the majority of angles.
Finally, I'm just really proud of this shelf box. This is like, Master Tier figure organization.
Now, time to wait for my October order. :3
