(Chibi Gallery) The Code Geass Boys

Photobucket

After 4 months of procrastination, I’ve finally found some motivation to sort through my numerous doll photographs and ready them for posting. ^^”

This time round, 80+ pictures that were picked out from 300+ images taken during the photo shoot to be shared in this post. I tend to get trigger happy when I have a fully charged SLR and empty memory card. =D Most of the pictures were taken with the SLR, with a few pics from the two other point-and-shoot digital cameras that we had on hand. The overall quality of images is a step above the previous photo shoot as we had gorgeous natural lighting and a much better camera at hand. Still… there were things to learn about using proper backdrops and such. Thankfully we have learned our lessons since and improved with each successive photo taking session… though those pictures will have to wait till later to boast about.

The stars of this shoot include both figma and nendoroid from Nyanko-sempai and my collections.

The participants from my doll harem include:

Figma Lelouch

Figma Suzaku

Nendoroid Yako

Nendoroid Miku

And from Nyanko-Sensei:

Figma Yuki Nagato Evil Witch Ver.

Revoltech Asuka

As we could not start playing with our toys until we had filled our tummies, both my partner-in-crime and I went around The Central hunting for some grub. We stumbled across a newly opened Japanese restaurant called Mr Curry which is part of the Waraku chain. The place has a lovely concept and is beautifully decorated… …

And of course, the chibi glutton Yako has to make an appearance.

Photobucket

Getting her utensils ready for the kill(?).

Photobucket

But she gets PAWNED instead. And she gets put up on the ledge away from our meals.

Photobucket

Photobucket

I had curry stew. Very tasty!

Photobucket

And somehow Yako manages to make her way down.

Photobucket

As dessert, there was a stick cake thing. It looked better than it tasted.

Photobucket

Nyanko-Sempai had a lovely parfait.

Photobucket

That came with a hot expresso that was to be poured over the ice-cream. It was really yummy and I took the liberty of stealing a few scoops of it.

Photobucket

Being big on marketing, the shop also sold plushies of their mascots: Mr Curry and Mango-kun. Both looking cute and squishable. =D

After lunch, we adjourned to the nearby Coffee Club. It had a series of full length windows that allowed the sunlight to fill the cafe. Perfect setting for our purposes.

Photobucket

I had packed most of my toys into a this box, which was once the packaging for mooncakes. The little pouches made with Japanese print textiles are “body bags” I made to carry around Nendoroids. Actually, it was just an excuse to buy more pretty cloth and satisfy my fetish for pretty prints.

Photobucket

Here’s Yako being used to test out the lighting.

Photobucket

I still think Yako is the cutest Nendoroid out of my collection. *gets killer stares from Miku, Yoko, Louise and Nagi*

Photobucket

The wand and hat is from Figma Yuki.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Even Nyanko-Sempai can’t withstand Yako’s kawaii pheromones.

Photobucket

Time to bring out the Boys!

Photobucket

First we have Lelouch, or Lulu as I prefer to call him. =D

Photobucket

Gotta love the detailed instructions from Figma.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Trying to get used to posing Lulu. ^^”

Photobucket

And in comes the blue backdrop. The idea was to create a “blue-screen” so that the background would be easy to mask out later on Photoshop.

Photobucket

Photobucket

And behind the paper backdrop is the actual setting, where there were other customers peering over our shoulders, checking out our toys.

Photobucket

Here’s Arthur looking out at the beautiful river scenery.

Photobucket

Photobucket

With two similar bodies, I could have two versions of Lulu in the same frame! Poor Suzaku is somewhere without his body. =)

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

And I stole Yuki’s props and used them on Lulu while Nyanko-sempai was not looking.

Photobucket

Photobucket

And the new cape and hat seems to fit Lulu perfectly.

Photobucket

Making him look quite dashing as a wizard.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Looking mysterious…

Photobucket

Photobucket

… as if he is plotting something evil.

Photobucket

Like turning Suzaku into Suzako. =D

Photobucket

However, after much unnecessary experimentations, we found the best combination for a feminine look was the result of using Suzaku’s face together with Lulu’s hair.

Photobucket

Looking quite 萌え.

Photobucket

However, Lulu doesn’t look to happy being put into a Sailor Fuku.

Photobucket

And threatens with a leek. =)

Photobucket

The uniform returns back to the original owner. who tries comparing her wand’s power against the mighty Leek.

Photobucket

Lulu gets into some Guitar hero action.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Yuki makes some tea while waiting for her guitar to be returned.

Photobucket

Little Miku also gets in on the action and plays with Yuki’s toys.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

And finally Yuki gets her props back and shares the stage with the chibi songstress.

Photobucket

Meanwhile, behind the scenes…

Photobucket

Suzaku gets bored of being ignored and surfs the web.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

On the menu is hot green tea, yakisoba bun and a sandwich.

Photobucket

But poor Yako lost her head.

Photobucket

And when she finds it, her life gets turned upside down.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Lelouch keeps getting the limelight, and keeps churning out cool poses for the camera.

Photobucket

Yako befriends Suzaku (in hopes of some of those snacks).

Photobucket

And a jealous Lelouch…

Photobucket

Cannot stand his BFF cheating on him.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Showdown with the various weapons. I think the both guns might not even be a match for the Leek in the blurred background.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Lulu PAWNS the day.

Photobucket

And celebrates his victory by making up with his neglected BFF.

Photobucket

And they get packed together in their box.

Photobucket

Arthur also made a new BFF. Too bad they won’t be going home together.

Photobucket

And this wraps things up. If you have enjoyed these pictures, I would love to hear your comments or suggestions. ^^

    I found this cute, animated Hatsune Miku (she looks like your doll and seems as clumsy *g*) Video. I hope, you like it. 🙂
