That’s right… there is still so much to cover!

I won’t deny that it’s partly because I’m personally a huge fan of Senjougahara… but I also do want to show as many people as possible the beauty behind this figure!

For anyone who has not seen the first blog about this figure, you can find it right here:


1/8th Scale Hitagi Senjougahara (Part 1)


Today we’re going to have a more detailed look…

At all the stationary!

I’ve been writing this blog for four years now…  but this is the first time I’ve done an article on just some extra parts that come with a figure… but the stationary really is so incredible…

It all comes apart into the six pieces you see here.

The yellow craft knife and red scissors on the left don’t connect to the others – they come just like that. You can place them anywhere on the stand that you like.

Alright, let’s try putting the pieces together.

First up the part with two staplers connects to the eraser part!

You’ll find a piece on the end of the pink stapler to insert into the eraser.

Next, the scissors part connects with the drawing triangle part.

You’ll find that that the drawing triangles on each part connect together.

Be sure to hold the parts at the bases!

If you hold them at the edges you’ll find that they will come apart very easily, or you might accidentally snap some parts off!
Hold them carefully and securely when you are trying to connect them together!

Stationary all connected!

There are four small prongs made from clear plastic which allow you to connect it to the figure’s base. Put the longer one on the pink stapler in first, and do the shortest one on the scissors at the end.

Now that we’ve got them all connected up, let’s take a look at just how high quality these little pieces of stationary are!

 

Even the ruler’s measurements are correct!

Yep. it measures a total of 4cm! ^^;

Good Smile Company even takes care when making tiny 4cm extra parts for figures!

The closest shot I could get!

Just look at the detail of the sculpting and painting on that craft knife!
If you compare it’s size to the finger’s in one of the earlier photos you’ll realize just how tiny it is! For something so tiny to have so much quality is incredible!

The stapler’s use gradient painting!

They really just look like real staplers…

The color is actually lost a little bit because of the close-up photography!

There is actually a reason behind that, but I’ll get into that another time.

This is the size of the eraser!

If you can’t find it, it’s in the bottom right! 😛

It’s about the same size as a Petite Nendoroid’s leg… the little scissors and craft knife on the floor are also tiny! (Plus they have gradient painting as well!)

All the stationary piled on the floor!

The stationary in itself looks amazing… so no matter how you display it, it almost always looks great! You can display it using the actual stand as intended, or if you feel like a change you can display it this with the various pieces just lying on the ground… or you could come up with you very own work of art using them! It’s up to you!

Petite Senjougahara playing with the stationary!

Oooh! It’s so adorable!

There really are so many ways you can use the stationary… if any of you come up with some interesting uses, be sure to mail them through to me!

Quiz Time!

What are the parts in the above photo?

When I went to China in December, I was lucky enough to see the painting of some of the Senjougahara figure! I took a ton of photos of it as well!

In tomorrow’s blog I’ll be discussing the process that these pieces of stationary went through to get made!

Good Smile Company’s 1/8th Scale,

Hitagi Senjougakara!
