Today’s Main Feature…!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Mio Honda: Crystal Night Party Ver.!

From the popular anime ‘THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of the New Generations member Mio Honda in a ‘Crystal Night Party’ version! Mio is posed wearing the ‘Crystal Night Party’ outfit she is seen wearing in both the opening theme of the anime’s second season as well as in the last episode of the series.

It is an outfit that shouts out what it means to be an idol with it’s shining and colorful design – a design which has been intricately sculpted and painted for fans to enjoy in their collection. Uzuki Shimamura: Crystal Night Party Ver. has already been announced, and a figure of Rin Shibuya in her ‘Crystal Night Party’ outfit is also on the way – so be sure to display the three together!

The second in the ‘Crystal Night Party’ series – Mio Honda!

The naturally cheerful leader of the New Generation’s unit is joining the ‘Crystal Night Party’ series of scale figures! ★

The figure is sculpted by Tomogomahu!

The energetic pose and healthy looking body captures Chanmio so nicely, and the realistic flow and appearance of the outfit has been sculpted in such lovely detail! The pose with the twist in her hips works nicely with the frilly design of the outfit! The long cape-like frills that come off her dress also look so amazing as a figure! ♡

The way she is gripping the skirt causing a few extra creases as well as the creases along her back caused by her twisted hips… you really get a feeling for the weight of the outfit! The way the shoulder accessories are moving around, as well as the sculpt of her hair and the frills on her outfit…

They all give the figure a lovely dynamic feeling! ♪

While the pose is quite simple, it’s such a treat for the eyes for all sorts of different reasons! The smallest little details just make you want to look closer and closer… the sculptwork really is fantastic!! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

Chanmio is also rather well known for her rather impressive body and curves, and the figure really does them justice!

Not only is the characteristic idol outfit sculpted beautifully with each crease and wrinkle carefully thought out, but it also really makes her body-line stand out showing just how soft and toned her skin is! っ(/ω\)

Take a nice close look at the area just above her bellybutton, or the area between her upper arm and the brooch on her chest! They all look so realistic… you can’t help but want to try and run your finger along the various uneven bumps of her outfit and smooth skin… but you’ll have to wait until she joins your collection to do that!

Let’s take a look a little bit lower!

The way her high socks are sculpted pushing into her skin together with the shadow paintwork around the knees really brings out that ‘feeling’ of skin! I tried to take this photo as close as I could without showing too much! You can see the lovely rounded form that continues beneath the skirt! ☆

Once again I just have to point out the creases in her outfit, but also note the pearl paintwork that gives a nice shiny appearance to the figure to give her that glittering appearance of an idol! (●´ω`●)

△  Look at the wrist area on her glove here!

Plus… the friendly, inspiring smile that Chanmio always has to cheer on the New Generations team has also been captured beautifully! ♪

The paintwork as well as expression were both done by the same artist that worked on the previously announced Shimamura Uzuki – Ekoshi! ♥︎

Be sure to enjoy both the incredible sculpt work of the outfit and accessories together with the heart-warming smile once she joins your collection!!  ♪
