Today’s Main Feature!
Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I changed my wardrobe into Summer mode, yet find that some days are still rather chilly at the moment. I wish it was easier to adjust your clothes to the weather!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at the 1/8th scale figure…
Summer Version Vira!★
“Summer is only just beginning!”
From “Granblue Fantasy” comes a 1/8th scale figure of Vira all dressed up for a summer vacation! Just look at the amazing detail of the intricate frills on her cute swimsuit!! ♥
The curves of her impressive bosom, those lovely armpits and the shape of her collarbone are all such a treat for the eyes!
▲ Also note the details on the scabbard and sword hanging from her hips! ♪
The pose and look on her face makes for a somewhat elegant look, but on the other hand there is something rather alluring about her eyes as well… (´□｀｡)
▲ I love this shot that gives a look at both
her face and a peek at her belly button! ♪
Next let’s take a quick 360° spin! ★
The twist in her hips, the long flowing hair and that soft looking body!!
Taking a look at the spinning figure you can get a better feel for the more dynamic details of the figure such as the ribbon on her chest and the flowing look of her hair! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)
Let’s take a more detailed look at specific areas!!
A rather tropical looking flower in her hair!
The petals look beautiful, but as does the details around the stamen and pistil! This angle also gives a nice look at the accessory on her arm and her nails which are painted a light purple.
The areas never visible in the illustration are also faithfully included! ★
The ribbon of her halterneck tied at her neck has long tails that end with a lovely golden look, and all the various other details of her outfit are such a bright and colorful treat to the eyes! This is one of those figures I’d even consider putting on display with the back showing!
The sexy body also can’t be ignored! So soft looking!!
Be sure to slide your fingers along the lovely curves of her body once she joins your collection! ♡
I also love the way the frilly part of her outfit has been blown outward around her chest! (/ω＼)
Reams of ribbons on her lovely legs!
The sculpting is one thing, but also note the shadows painted at the bottom of her knees! Delicious!! ♥
Another ribbon to note is the one of her back!
As you can see the inner side of the ribbon is orange, but…
The outside has a beautiful metallic blue gradient! ε=(｡・д・｡)
It’s really amazing how closely figures can mimic the illustrations they are based on nowadays! The ribbon also makes use of an ever-so-slightly transparent material which gives it a nice translucent look as well! This amazing coloring was all performed by Hiroyuki Hirose from Decomas Lab!
The base is also a rather special!
It might be a little difficult to make out what exactly is happening here, so let me explain with the help of some arrows! (●‘∀‘●)ﾉ
Left Arrow: Front of footprint already left behind.
Middle Arrow: A footprint where her heel was, which has now started to lift
Right Arrow: A little mound of sand made as the foot is about to take the next step!
The base alone tells a little story of its own!
The figure as a whole is really such an amazing sight with so much detail given to even the smallest details of her outfit and accessories. The figure’s sculptor Manabu Katou really put his heart and soul into this Summer Version Vira!
I’m really not sure if my feeling are getting across through the blog, but this figure really is a work of art! I wish more people could get a look at it in person!! ((´д`●))三((●´д`))
Be sure to add her to your collection!
