Finally the last of the Shuraki girls have arrived, hmm actually she arrived quite sometime ago, just that I didn’t write this post until now xD. At first Rize was my least favourite of the Shuraki girls, but once I got her, she ain’t that bad, but Shall and MeiFeng are still my fav though.
This batch of photos was uploaded like a few weeks ago, so those that frequent my Flickr has probably already seen them. I only shot the battle damage version and group shots a while ago xD. Experimented with something different in these shots, by using a glass on top of the background paper and placing a flash underneath, I created the glowing effect under the figure, which make the ground looks kinda like ice. Quite like the result that came out from this shoot.
Anyway back to the figure, she came in a suprisingly huge and heavy box, most probably due to her very large and heavy skirt. It’s so heavy that her left foot peg broke off from the base, another collector that I know have the same problem. Is anyone else having this problem as well ? Currently I had her in battle damage clothing to reduce the weight and she’s held by only the peg on her right foot.
The design of her dress is quite nice, with the flowing belt and skirt that make her look more dynamic. I would have prefer that her left hand can really hold the halberd though, instead of resting on her breast xD.
Definitely looks moe~ xD.
A few battle damage shots.
Group shot of all the Shuraki girls, kinda hard to place them properly for the shoot though, with all the weapons and flowing skirt haha.
After I received Rize, I read in Dannychoo.com that there will be a second Shuraki series. Well there are a few more girls in the booklet that looks pretty good if made into figures, but I am not sure whether I’ll be collecting the second series though. Guess I’ll just wait and see.
