Today I had to sneak into the GSC Café to take a couple of photos of these two!!
These photos were taken in the karaoke room with my a Sony NEX-05! I normally always use my Sony Alpha, so these shots might seem a little different compared to normal.
These photos also let me pretend I’m doing karaoke after the summer festival together with the cute girls in yukatas! Adding that premise also gives a whole new feeling to the photos! :P
1/8th Scale Saber: Yukata ver.!
From the popular Fate/stay night series comes this 1/8th scale figure of Saber wearing a yukata perfect for the summer months! She is holding a folding fan in her one hand and a candied apple in the other!
It’s like she’s asking, “Want some?”
They way her hand is far out makes it feel like I’m out on a date with Saber and she is offering me some of the candied apple!! I can’t believe I got a date with Saber-san!!
This is how she looks from the back!
Even this side is more than cute enough!!! ･(ﾉД`)･ﾟ･｡
She is wearing a lovely blue yukata with darker blue morning glory prints along it.
I love seeing characters in yukatas, they always look so cute! I suppose part of the reason is because you don’t get to see them like this very often, but there must be more to it than that…
Her lovely hipline is visible through the yukata!
Your eyes just go straight for those lovely hips, don’t they? Often with kimonos or yukatas a towel will be placed between the bust and fabric to prevent them from standing out too much, so being able to make out the other areas of the body through the fabric becomes all the more important!
She also comes with a ponytail option!
An very nice extra option from FREEing!! The ponytail makes her look even more cuter to me – she looks more relaxed somehow!
Even the back of her neck is cute!
Saber looks like she has her attention elsewhere – I’m guessing there are more stands with some delicious festival food she wants to try! :P
You can also switch around which hands are holding the candied apple and the folding fan. (Well, you can on the prototype, we’ll have to wait and see if it is still possible on the final version!)
The second in the set is Ilya: Yukata ver.!
Ilya has a yukata with a similar shade of purple to her normal outfit, along with a lovely pink ribbon! She is posed in a much more exited pose as a lovely contrast to the calm Saber!
She even has a Berserker mask!
She looks so adorable in this pose! Rin and Sakura will also be following to complete the Fate girls Yukata collection, allowing you to keep all four of them by your side, all wearing the yukatas that come directly from the designs in the game!
