Kuroyukihime: Black Butterfly Ver.

April is coming to an end… we’re fully into Spring now!

001
A big butterfly is covering up Yuri-chan’s face!! (((οΎŸΠ”οΎŸ)))

I always thought this breed of butterfly only came out in Summer… not to mention I can’t help but think it’s a little too big to be real! πŸ˜›

Today I’ll be looking at an adorable prototype that came swooping down into the GSC offices today!

From Accel World:
1/8th Scale Kuroyukihime: Black Butterfly Ver.!

From the anime ‘Accel World’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of the elegant and cunning young lady, Kuroyukihime! She has been sculpted in her butterfly avatar form, wearing a black dress which contrasts beautifully with her pale skin.

Her long dress spreads out magnificently to the floor, and the lacing on the edges is features a transparent purple parts – everything has been sculpted to the finest of details. Her outfit together with her huge wings create a beautiful, mystical figure of Kuroyukihime for fans to enjoy.

She has so much volume for a 1/8th scale figure!

Figures in a sitting position tend to look a little too small or cramped, but I don’t get that feeling from this figure at all! Plus the contrast between her pale skin and the black of her dress is absolutely beautiful!

You can really feel Kuroyukihime’s aura coming off from this figure! It suits her so well!
003
This is how she looks from the back!

It’s quite hard to tell from the photos, but the butterfly wings actually makes use of a slight transparent gradient! If you look at the bottom right here you’ll see that you can just see through the wing a little bit.

The details are so tiny it’s hard to even capture them in photos… but seeing it in person is even more amazing!
006
This is a too much for me, senpai!! ヽ(`Π”Β΄)γƒŽ

That ever so slight bump is really something, isn’t it!! (;γ‚œβˆ€γ‚œ)=3

I’m sure most of you will know I’m generally someone who prefers a bit of meat on the body, but the line from her collar bone to her shoulders is so lady-like… I couldn’t say no to this! When I see such a gentle looking body, I can’t help but get the feeling I need to protect it!
004
Such a cute, innocent expression!!

She has her head tilted slightly to the side which makes it look even cuter! But beyond the cuteness you can also see Kuroyukihime’s strong resolve, just by looking into her eyes!
005
Look at the drape of her dress!

All the creases along the dress give it such a dynamic feeling, and the paintwork makes the fabric look heavy and realistic! Just like with yesterday’s Sheryl, Kuroyukihime looks so very real – the dress seems to be acting just as a real dress would… figures are such a work of art!

The lacing on the edges also makes use of a lovely transparent purple – the lacing over her thighs makes them look even more sexy!
007
Aki, the head of GSC, helped make sure the legs were perfect!

While the sculpting was still being worked on the legs had a slightly plumper look, but Aki requested it be changed because a middle school’s legs should be thinner and more lady-like! πŸ˜›

Thanks to the change her legs have indeed come out looking very lady-like which makes for this lovely photo! The uneven knees and the shadow you can see on the reverse side of her thighs are also great!!
010
If you look from the side… you get a little present!

Ah, she is wearing something underneath, in case you’re wondering! πŸ˜›

The huge butterfly wings make this section quite hard to see normally, but from the side you can get a nice little view of her back. That silver butterfly is in such a sexy position! Ξ£(γ‚œΠ”γ‚œ;οΌ‰
008
Even the hard-to-see parts are detailed!

Kuroyukihime is actually sitting on this lovely antique chair!Once she’s sitting on it it’s very hard to see, but even so the detail is amazing!
009
You can also display her without the wings!

Unfortunately it does leave a little hole in her back where the wings connect to, but from the front she looks just fine!

There is another thing I want to mention, but I can’t go into too much detail without getting into trouble… the skirt section of her dress isn’t held in place with tabs or anything else. Plus the separation lines on the body are also carefully done as to not stand out… I think you can see where I’m going with this? (γ‚œΞ΅γ‚œ)
