(Nendoroid) Nagi

Remember the flowers from before? I thought I would reuse the materials from the bouquet and do a little something for poor neglected Nagi.It was also time to brush up my Photoshopping skills which have been gathering dust ever since FYP ended. =P

I used some lot of filters on this picture to create a soft and dreamy feel, with a tinge of melancholy.

For those who haven’t watch Kannagi, and aren’t acquainted with Nagi-chan here, the face she on Nendo Nagi is her ‘trance’ look. Nagi is actually a spiritual being of sorts and have been known to go into a trance. =) Forgive my lame description and go google instead.

With this picture, I want to make things a little happier and more ‘magical’. Hence the sparkles. =D

There are still some pictures in the lot and I’ll post them eventually. There are now two photoshoots to post but I’m lazy and will probably get around posting it when I’m in the mood.

In other news, the Wonderfest 09 (Summer) photos are up and it looks like GSC is out to bled my wallet yet again. The mystery of  the K-On! girls have been solved and it looks like Ritsu is going to be packed with an awesome drumset. I find it ironic that despite Mio’s popularity, Ritsu (the least loved of the quartet) is going to cost more than her bandmates due to her accessories. I’ll probably be getting the all for Nendos. I like Yui, Mugi and Ritsu enough to overcome my prejudice and get Mio to complete the meal.  Vocaloid Hatsune Miku’s alter egos look adorable too and I am tempted to get both Neru and Haku.

And in response to Kodomut’s comment in my previous post:

Thanks (to random deity) I have a job. ^^

Today marks the end of my University life as I attended the ADM Convocation 09. It was a crazy day filled with a sense of nostalgia for the days to come. I went trigger happy and took a tonne of pictures that have been duly posted over at Facebook. Since I’m keeping this blog strictly mysterious, the only pictures that are made public are this set of photographs.

Some of the challenges of figurine photograph include:

+ Having the tenacity and pigheadedness to set the shoot up in random locations

+ Developing an oblivious attitude to stares from curious strangers who perceive our activities as “crazy”

+ To ignore the guilt of taking up a spot in a crowded fastfood outlet with the frail excuse of having just a large cup of coke

(Nendoroid) Rin Kokoroe

Rin

The idea was to go down to KKnM to place pre-orders for Nendoroid Drossel & Nedoroid Yume Asakura, and to help Nyanko-Sempai bring his Azone Horo home. However, I went crazy paranoid when I laid my eyes on the lovely little Rin Kokoroe from Kodomo no Jikan. She was released early this year, but because I missed the pre-order for her previously, I couldn’t get my paws on her. I had no idea there would be a restock. So I jumped at the opportunity to have Nendoroid Rin!

Took the picture above with my digital PnS camera, a Lumix FX38. And I’ll be going through the finer details of this casual photoshoot in a proper post… sometime in the not so near future. =P I’m trying to keep things chronological so I’ll have to hurry and post the Louise & Yoko centric photoshoot before posting this set of photographs. (And with some amount of guilt, I realize that poor Nagi-sama hasn’t had much time infront of the camera compared to the rest of the other girls.)

In other news, I’m now on Figure.fm and will strive to only post quality images there. Which means that I would only be putting up pictures I feel are the best of the lot there, while I indulge in a flooding of photographs here on wordpress. =)

(Nendoroid) Vocaloid Dance!

“Kurutto, Odotte, Hatsune Miku” (Nendoroid Ver.)


Script-Diver shared this lovely video with me and I was captivated by the cute animation. It’s not the real Nendoroids dancing… but 3d incarnations of the Vocaloids in their Nendoroid form. 

I recognise Miku (green haired), Rin & Len (the blonds), Meiko (brown cropped hair) and Kaito (the blue bishie) … but the other cuties are quite foreign to me… till I googled and found out that the two other Nendoroids that joined Miku in the middle of the video are Haku (the slow one) and Neru (the nerurotic one). =D They are Miku’s alternate personalities. -lol-
