Toronto is having an early winter this year and we just had our first snow fall couple days ago. On a quite chilly Saturday morning (-8 C btw), I was suddenly struck with a brilliant idea to do a photoshoot so I grabbed my jacket and went to my backyard which is still covered with snow. Actually I had this idea in mind for a long time and I think Blowfish suggested to take my Akatsuki Mishiro figure during winter.
Blanc Neige was the chosen one for my first winter photoshoot. I got this figure like back in early October and had not done any photoshoot. I was being lazy ^_^ and all. It might sound crazy to take pictures in a cold weather but I had a lot of fun. I was laying down on the snow, rolling left and right while trying to take photos of Blanc Neige.
I think most people will agree with me that Koto is Koto so you can put them on the same level as Alter, GSC or Max Factory. One noticable flaw on this figure is her hair. There are some imperfect sculpt here and there. Regardless of the flaws, I still like this figure because I enjoy the Shinning Wind series a lot and Blanc Neige is my favorite girl in the series ^^.
I like her better without the cape ^^
I couldn’t feel my hand after like 30 mins. Wearing gloves would be a good idea next time ^^;;.
