Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Yay for long weekends! The dreaded Monday is nowhere in sight! Although having two long weekends in a row makes me scared about next week… it’s going to feel longer than ever! ((((;゚Д゚))))

But let’s not think about that and instead have some fun taking a look at someone with one of the brightest smiles ever! A figure which was recently on display at THE IDOLM@STER 8th ANNIVERSARY HOP! STEP!! FESTIV@L!!!

Uzuki Shimamura: New Generation Ver. ♪

From the popular social game ‘IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of Uzuki Shimamura wearing her ‘New Generation’ outfit!

She has a huge smile on her face bringing out her cheerful personality, and the cute pink stage outfit has been sculpted down to the finest of details for fans to enjoy! She also comes with two different expressions for fans to choose from – you can choose to enjoy her cheerful smile either with closed eyes to recreate the original illustration, or instead use the alternate version with open eyes!

She is so CUTE!! ♥♡♥ (*´Д`)

Uzuki is the second figure wearing her ‘New Generation’ outfit, following on from the previously announced Rin Shibuya!! She is based on a pose from one of the illustrations in the game with all the small details kept intact… and just look at that amazing smile! You can’t help but feel a little warm and fuzzy inside looking at her!! (´∀`*)ウフフ

Plus her outfit is the definition of an idol’s outfit! Frilly, colorful and adorable! ☆

Even her shoes are super cute!!

Just look at the detail on her hair accessory! ♪

Plus, as you may have read in the product description…

An alternate expression with open eyes is included!

It’s the same lovely smile but somehow the figure has a whole new feeling to it when her eyes are opened!! Of course you can choose whichever expression you prefer, and switch them whenever you feel like it! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

Ahh!! I want the final version her on my desk already!!

(・∀・) “There’s more to Shimamura-san than just her cute side!”

Ooh! Otanaka-shi from the planning team has decided to join us once again!!

(・∀・) “She is super cute, but there is a hidden sexy side to her too!”

I think I know what you mean… taking a closer look at her hips and stomach, there is definitely a rather ‘mature’ feeling about her too!

(・∀・) “We wanted to make sure to give her a bit of a sexy side, even if it was bound to be overshadowed by her cuter side!”

The back of her knees also seem to catch my eyes for some reason!

(・∀・) “The ‘peace’ hands and her boobies are also quite the attention grabbers!”

They do look rather… soft…!! <●><●>

(・∀・) “Whilst the lower body is showing off a lot of skin, the upper body is quite covered up by her stage outfit. However, the pose allowed us to create ‘squeezed together’ look, which keeps the cute and sexy balance once again!”

It makes me want to touch them and see if they’re really as soft as they look…
Let’s see what the sculptor of this figure has to say!

*Sculptor Summon: Manabu Katou!*

( ・ω・) “The areas I worked the hardest on were probably the frills on her skirt.”

The multiple layers of her skirt look amazing! It’s like a mille-feuille skirt! ♥

( ・ω・) “I did all sorts of research on the volume and balance of skirts using idol magazines!”

Idols in idol magazines to tend to have rather short skirts just like this…

( ・ω・) “I’s also like to point out the voluminous hair and with the twists and curls at the end for extra dynamic effect!”

This much detail in things like the hair curls is what really separates scale figures from others! It really helps bring out her cuteness even more! (*´Д`)=з
