Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Kyoto is like a second home to me, as when I was in university I lived alone there! It’s so easy to go out and have fun in Kyoto in ways that Tokyo just doesn’t understand!
Today I’ll be taking a look at a figure filled with that lovely Kyoto atmosphere…
Madoka Kaname: Maiko Ver.
|From ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of Madoka Kaname as a maiko – based on the illustration seen on the pre-sale tickets for the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair! The figure is a faithful rendition of the original illustration, with both the outfit, Japanese umbrella and autumn colors coming together to bring out the atmosphere of Kyoto perfectly!
The details on her hair accessories and the beautiful pattern on her kimono have all been carefully sculpted in a cute, playful pose for fans to enjoy!
Her light blue kimono is simply beautiful! (●´ェ｀●)ﾎﾟｯ
She is posed elegantly holding up part of her kimono, which reveals some contrasting red cloth by her feet! We have previously seen the Nendoroid version of this elegant Madoka sold at overseas events, and now fans can add the scale version to their collections too! ♥
The purple hair accessories also match up with Madocchi’s pink hair so nicely!
I really like this angle, as it’s just the right angle for me to picture her gently twisting her head toward me with a gentle “Hmm?”, if I called out to her!
The geta sandals are also very suited to the season and to a Maiko! It all comes together to create such a beautiful outfit!
Kimonos truly are the best!!
This product will be available on the 7th and 8th of September at the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2013!
Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2013
Date: 2013/09/07 – 2013/09/08
Place: Miyako Messe
Official Website: http://www.kyomaf.jp/index.php
The Miyako Messe is very close to the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art! I remember going to that museum for both class and my personal hobbies a number of times, it’s an amazing place to visit! The ‘Takeuchi Seiho’s Modern-Day Japanese Paintworks’ that are currently on display in Tokyo are also going to be at that museum from October – the 80th anniversary display for the museum!
Art Museums are filled with interesting things to see and learn, and I highly recommend taking a look if you get the chance! Although I haven’t been able to go to many myself recently… hopefully I can find some time to see Takeuchi Seiho’s work! |дﾟ)ﾁﾗｯ
