About
Hey I'm a U.S. college student who discovered figures in 2009 and have been hemoraging funds on the hobby ever since. I'm only really interested in anime figures, but the other stuff on here can be fun to look at too. I really am liking nendos and figmas they are cool cuz you can pose them. Straight up static PVC's are cool too cuz they are so beatimous. I don't really have super interesting things to say here, so I'll try to be cool by apathetically talking about how I have nothing to say here. Mission accomplished.

and yeah, I'm a girl.

I didn't think I would have time to make a mmp this month, but its fun, and I wanted a distraction from exams.




A few days ago...
"I can't wait to see everyone! This will be so much fun!"


The day of the party...
"I should start getting ready, everything needs to be ready incase people show up early!"


"Can't have a xmas part without a tree."


"and xmas treats! Cookie dough truffles alright!"


6:00...
"They should be here soon."


"I can't belive no one is here yet..."


"Well no use letting a good party go to waste woo!!!"


"I don't need those friends, I can have fun by myself...and of course with you Mr. Gingerbread."


"Hey we are here!"
"Sorry we're late!"


""Dang I feel like we missed a good party."

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!









Summer is almost over I guess, but I still can appreciate these beautiful flowers while they last. The weather is still beautiful!


What are you doing hanging around here! We need to start the decorating for fall, and start working on our costumes for Halloween.


But but...Where did these leaves come from? What happened to my summer?
From the trees smarty pants. Come on! Hurry up!


Wow your costume looks great, so edgy!
I know right! what are you supposed to be?


An updated version of a voice synthesizer.


Um...ok well either way you look hot! Now lets go get our candy! Hurry before its all gone.


That was a great candy binge! I'm so full I couldn't eat another bite!
Well to bad we need to get prepared for thanksgiving.
What! Already!
Yep now let's go!


Um...I think we got the wrong size turkey. Also I thought I specificallly asked for a pre-dead one.


Wake up! Wake up!
Ung...What's wrong with you?
It's Black Friday duh! We need to shop! The store opens at 4. Hurry! Hurry!


Yawn. So what was such a great deal that you dragged me out here at this hour?
Does it matter? Its a tradition! Come on we need to hurry to get the best deals!
Can't we just get everyone candy or something? I want to go back to bed.


Now that the presents are bought its time to start wrapping woot!


I guess not...well lets finish decorating ! Hey where are you going?


O wow...its so peaceful...


You seem so grumpy lately! Sometimes you just need to stop and take time to appreciate nature you know?


O_o....

….
It's cold out come inside quick!


EDIT* on my monitor it helps to tilt the screen in different ways to see some of the brighter or darker pictures.

I played around with outdoor lighting and night shots, so that was interesting. and somewhat crazy.








I wouldn't cosider any of this spoiler material, but if you are really picky stay away!

ya i didnt get obsessed with madoka magica at all did i


DSCF1004 by rivelets
she took about a week to make, while I still had classes and was functioning normally (except for a lack of sleep.


DSCF1003 by rivelets
I free handed pretty mucheverything. I drew out the basic shapes on paper to get the sizes right first, and then started cutting.


DSCF1001 by rivelets
by the end I was using even the smallest scraps of some of the colors so I wouldn't have to go get more.


DSCF1007 by rivelets

I also made all of the food she is surrounded by. I started making them last year during christmas break. I'ts a great relaxation tool.

So what do you think? should I mass produce the, and make millions?

I really want to get the miku append figma and amiami has it for a good price. I've never ordered internationally besides the support miku nendo (and everyone here know how well thats going.)
so the question is, what are the hidden fees for ordering an import from them? I live in wisconsin, anyone know where i can find info on customs charges or any other taxes? I'm trying to decide if I should keep my order with them, of get it from an american based shop for a higher price.








She arrived in the mail yesterday and I had to go to work, so heres a few quick pics.

She is just beautiful. I don't see any really noticeable defects like in the review here.


DSCF1341 by rivelets1

Look at that face, well what you can see of it. She is absolutely adorable. Her mouth is also super cute even though you can't see it from most angles.


DSCF1345 by rivelets1

I love her from this angle. Her skirt is so floofy and fun, and I don't really see to much paint tranfser on it. I do wish the wire was sculpted, but it looks fine and if you can get it in the right place it would be cool just to know it was real wire.

Well here are my only 2 PVC figures. Mio is a pretty good size, but she's still smaller then Taiga. She is really heavy from her big skirt though which I like. I makes her feel like she has substance.
When I saw them together I realized they both have the same leg pose. I think my next figure will have to switch it up.

I really should do a real photoshoot of either of them but work is eating my life right now.
