Kirino looking angry in different places…

Hey guys, what’s up?

I just came back from a nice little family vacation and I’m feeling quite refreshed. Me being a nice good figure owning person, who happens to like taking photos of said figures, took one along for the ride and took pictures of it.

We went to the beach, and you know what was crossing through my head at the time? Regret. Once we got there I really wish I had brought the lovely Gift 1/4th loli Nanoha, what better place to take pictures of a swimsuit figure than the beach right?

Sigh… oh well, may be next time… because I sure don’t go to the beach to go play in the sea with family or friends I go to take pictures of giant loli figures. Sometimes I question myself a little.

It was a nice change of pace for me, was feeling pretty darn blue for a lot of reasons. Which bugs me since not feeling happy sure makes it hard for me to pump out the figure pictures.

Now though, I’m feeling much better and was actually looking to come back home because…

… I received this very pretty scaled figure than I been looking forward to for months. Plus I got a nice idea for the setup I wanna use, which is keeping with my new self imposed decree to only do scaled shoots when I get a nice idea for the figure.

Thinking about it, part of my excitement is that this will be the first scaled figure I gotten this year, the rest has been figmas. Thanks to Alter and GSC’s silly factory sharing business everything got super majorly delayed. Since I apparently only have Alter figures on order besides the one I mentioned for the first quarter I have gotten nothing up until now.

In fact for Maid Laura and Jubei there isn’t a release date anymore, MFC lists just 2013 and AmiAmi still has the vague Spring 2013. I suppose it worked out for me, not need to cancel them since the delays will allow me to work on improving my financial situation.

So, the more delays the better for me. Yay!

I wasn’t actually gonna use the pictures I took while on my vacation for anything but they got positive feedback on Flickr. Way more attention than usual, I got like comments and favorites and stuff! That rarely happens!

So I figured, why not, should go post something on the blog anyways since it has been a while.

Looking back on these photos I’m very jealous, I so do not have nice bodies of water and pretty green nature stuff all over the place back home.

Anyways, filler post done! Laters!


  1. Too bad for Nanoha.

    When Im at certain locationsI also feel regret that I haven’t bought a figure along, in May I’ll be in france for family vacation. Hopefully I wiill have my Azusa doll until then.

    I hope Alter won’t delay Akarin.

    Anyway nice pictures, 4 and 5 are so nice, I can nearly catch the sunny breeze. You can’t imagine how cold it is and we have already spring here. People like figure outdoor pictures a lot, it seems.

    • Indeed, should have brought her along… and my reflector and my tripod and my DSLR…

      France? Sounds neat, time to hook up with a pretty French girl! You can be like, hey wanna check out my doll? :P

      Traveling really makes me wish I had my whole figure collection easily available. Same thing happened when I went to Canada so many nice location but my figures hundreds and hundreds of miles away.

      Lol, for us here in Texas winter is over. We will get our nice few weeks of nice cool weather then on to the usual six month summer.

      People sure do, I suppose it is the contrast of seeing the figures in outdoor locations.

      • Oh, oh no dslr? It looks like you used one actually ^^

        You can’t win a maidens heart like that, but I can lure them in when they get curious about Azusa. Maybe they want to pose with her *dream on*

        It’s always difficult to decide about the figure who should accompany me, if possible I try to get two in the luggage.

        I think people partially admire the courage one person has, some people feel ashamed from the thought of being seen by others.

  2. Kirino Kousaka Looking At Things

    I haven’t had to deal with any recent delays yet, though I have at least one Figma in the pipeline that will probably get delayed. In fact, my copy of Fate/Extra CCC/Saber Bride is actually finally on its way after all these years!

    Aren’t you supposed to be taking your Dollfie around all the time for opportunities like this?!

    • I like Kirino, I can feel I can just put her in any situation and things will work out with her angry look.

      Delays are fine, at some point in the last 4 years or so I stopped getting anxious about stuff arriving so I can live with them.

      Ehh? The dollfie? It’s too much of a pain, need a special carrying bag, have to groom the clothes and hair and do appropriate poses and their balance is almost non existent. It requires a dedicated mindset on my part to take it out for picture taking.

      But yeah, would have been nice. I do have a swimsuit and casual clothes for Nanoha.

    • Too bad for her she is one of my most traveled figures.

      You should, it’s fun as long as you don’t mind the risk of losing stuff or possible damage anyways.

  3. She’s always angry regardless of the situation. That’s why I don’t like her at all in the series. KuroNeko is far better…*nods to himself* :D

  4. “because I sure don’t go to the beach to go play in the sea with family or friends I go to take pictures of giant loli figures. Sometimes I question myself a little”

    I just love this quote oh so very much~ It’s epic and I totally understand where you’re coming from =D

    And the backgrounds are so pretty! Too bad Kirino seems annoyed by it all =3

    • Epic huh? Still I do get that feeling a lot when I discover some nice locations.

      That place I went to was pretty nice, I would like to go back and do a shoot of a scaled figure. Although I do suppose the large traffic of people would make it kinda head.

  5. Maybe she was angry because you didnt pamper her with her games and all lol but nice shots, very colorful and good to see you in good shape :)
