Finally I have completed my photo session for Rosanna. Took longer than usual for me to post up photos of my latest girl but I think it’s well worth the wait . Before I bought Rosanna, I have already seen some figures based on Shunya Yamashita’s illustration, the first being Sera-chan. At the time they don’t really attract me much until I saw the Kotobukiya exclusive Mirei San, she caught my attention and spark my interest in Yamashita’s work. Rosanna wasn’t my first choice as my first Art of Shunya Yamashita figure, she was more of an impulse buy. Taking a closer look now and I am really glad that i bought her as she looks really great. She’s a mix of fantasy and heavy metal style as can be seen from her physic defying outfit and huge sword.
Now on to the pictures….
Instead of the usual plain background, a wrapping paper is use for this photo session. It works pretty well and using a netting as a veil, she looks more mysterious.
She’s most probably the only figure in my collection with a more realistic body propotion.
She was sculpted by Eiichi Ishida who did a good job in capturing her looks based on Yamashita’s illustration. The design of the outfit is very nice and very revealing too.
See how physic defying her outfit is, makes you wonder how it stay on, hmmm…
Very nice eye, too bad the other is covered though
