Aria ~ Alicia Florence

I have never watch the anime Aria and all I know about Aria is the setting kinda looks like Venice with the canals and gondolas, so I have no idea who’s Alicia Florence before or after I bought her :P . Well guess I should sit down and watch the anime one of these days, after all it’s feel funny to get a figure that I know nothing about xD.

Anyway I got her when she was restock at Hobby Search recently and ship her together with my Fraulein Revoltech Asuka. It beats shipping a Revoltech alone which gonna be costly, and Alicia is really a nice figures even though I have never really plan to get her, hooray for impulse purchase ^^.

My initial plan was to find a place with water to shoot her, but being the lazy bum that I am and considering I’ve been going out almost every weekend for photo shoot lately I just feel like staying home and sleep late instead xD. So it’s back to indoor shoot with a basic background and also a good chance to test out my new 50mm f/1.4 prime lens.

I just love her hair and the windblown effect, when you look at her you can just imagine she’s standing by a pier with the wind blowing ^^.

This is probably my favourite angle, I just love the pose and the little detail that is put in to the figure.

She comes screw to a quite a larger transparent base, I guess the empty space is for the cat that she comes with. The cat is umm Aria’s President or something, forgive me for my lack of knowledge on this anime.

Another angle that I like.

Failed at trying to make a diorama of her standing on a pier. Maybe some real water would have been better but I couldn’t find anything to hold the water.

For some nice photos of Alicia head over to lu-k post on her.

After some rearrangement I manage to clear up the small table that I use to put my figures shoot props and background on, which means I have more space for my figures ^^. I have to try to limit my purchase nowadays otherwise I would really have too many figures that I probably have to put them all around my room.
