Today arrived a figure that was an instant pre-order for me. No hesitation, I had to have it! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾♡ This particular character is from a series that is by no means mainstream, so I was quite surprised to see a figure released in the first place… but yeah, this is one of my favourite characters ever and I doubt that there will be another figure made, so I had to have it! (ﾉ≧∀≦)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
Lets take a look in the box, shall we? ♥～(‘▽^人)
I was surprised that I was able to get this package via Airmail… I thought that it would be bigger. But I sure as heck am not complaining!
Too impatient to document every phase!!! Lol~ (ᗒᗜᗕ)՛̵̖
Its Kusuriuri figure by Kotobukiya! (੭ु´͈ ᐜ `͈)੭ु⁾⁾ And there’s a bunch of other stuff, too…
I had to have these super cute keychains of my baseball bbies MiyuMiyu and Bakamura~ ♡(˃͈ દ ˂͈ ༶ )
Also, a new body for the first version Detective Boy Yuuta that I bought off Y!J. I got a white skin body for him because his head was so pale, and it turned out to be a really good match for him! Yay~ ヾ(*´∀｀*)ﾉ
I also couldn’t resist this cute cu-poche set.
Its a bit too small for the Himenos, lol. (ᗒᗊᗕ) But my nendos can use it~
But, onto the main event: Kusuriuri’s box opening!! (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
The box is so classy with the black & gold~ (●♡∀♡))ヾ☆*。
So excited about this figure!! o(≧∇≦o)
There was a poster-ad inside the box, ahah~ It’s about the release of the “Nue” arc (eps 8-9 of the anime) as manga. I failed to focus both the figure and the poster, oh well… (-∀-`; )
Huhuhuhuhu~ Kusuriuri is so cool! ヽ(*≧ω≦)ﾉ ♥
Ahh, this figure is so pretty and colourful! I loooove it~ (灬♥ω♥灬)
The other geta is a separate piece, of course… I’m struggling to pose it like it was in official photos, lol!
There are little smudges on some of the details, but for the most part the paintjob is nicely done~ ♥
Lifted him up on top of the showcase because the light was better.
Soooo cooool~! ヾ(o≧∀≦o)ﾉﾞ I love, love this figure so much! ♥ ♥ ♥ He’s a bit of a challenge to photograph so that the smoke aligns well with the pipe that he’s holding, ahah…
Of course I had to try a backlight photo with the pretty background~ ♥
I need to have a proper photoshoot with him as soon as I figure out a nice background for him… the Mononoke anime’s style is quite distinctive and I want to stay true to it when I photograph him~ ☆ヾ(*´▽｀)ﾉ
Here’s a trailer that I found from YouTube, in case someone isn’t familiar with this series:
I recommend watching it, it’s so unique and interesting~ \(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥ And of course, Kusuriuri is voiced by Sakurai Takahiro, which is ALWAYS a good reason to watch an anime, lol! (*≧▽≦)ﾉｼ)) But seriously, it’s so good~ ♥

I always enjoy reading your posts, and I love when you mix nature with dolls~! And thank you for your advice! Unfortunately, I bought my Sera from a second hand shop... and it seems like Azone's support policy doesn't cover second hand goods. :( She looks fine but her head is so soft and comes off without much effort. I suppose I will have to be very gentle with her!

Or you could message Azone directly from this page: http://www.azone-int.jp/index.php?sid=200

Hi Azu! Thank you for the compliments, I'm flattered~ ^^ And congratulations on your Sera! What you described sounds odd indeed. D: I Checked my Sera and I see/feel no difference to my other pureneemo dolls... where did you buy your Sera from? I wonder if you could contact the store and ask about the issue?

Hi! Your informative posts and wonderful photos have influenced me to purchase my very own Green Gables Sera. Recently I noticed her head is extremely soft and thin compared to my other Pure Neemos... it's very delicate and I'm a bit worried. Is this normal?

Hello! Sorry for the late reply. @_@;; Yeah, I think I could make one. I have a few wigs that are a complete mess and need to be restyled all the time. xD;; First I need to catch up on publishing some older posts, though. But hopefully I'll have time to make a post about wig styling soon. :3

Hey! Could you possibly do tutorial about styling a wig? I really, really want to know how to do it.. Few wigs of mine look horrible, and I can't find tutorial to styling them.. :(

Hi! Well, most people seem to use Blogger, I suppose it's the simplest service out there for creating a blog. My blog is Wordpress based that I made through my domain provider, but you can sign up for Wordpress at their site as well. Both Blogger & Wordpress have lots of layouts available that you can either customise to your own preferences or keep as they are. ^^
