Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
The office has really started to get restless with all the WonFes preparations! Just over a week until the big day!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Shigure: Casual Ver.!
“Admiral, it’s starting to get a little cold out, isn’t it? I’ll be alright.”
A figure based on an illustration on a poster included with the November 2016 edition of NYANTYPE Magazine, including some original interpretation of the lower half of the figure! This was a figure made mostly due to the fact that the planner for the figure had fallen in love with the original illustration! ((´д`●))三((●´д`))
While the figure does have a bit of a boyish appearance, the ladylike elements of Shigure’s body and her casual outfit have all been faithfully preserved! Plus just look at the details put into the creases on her outfit! They look amazing!
The sculpt of the outfit around her hips captures how the outfit fits to her body so well… plus also take note of the slightly crumpled look of the shirt at the be upper arms!!
The frills at the bottom of her vest and the pleats of her skirt are also stunning, and all come together to make such a beautiful wardrobe!!
She is posed leaning against a wooden fence with one leg up in a rather relaxed looking pose, and those bare legs are just the right thickness – not too thin, but just the right size to keep that soft and touchable looking appearance! The dent formed at the back of her knee has also been sculpted so perfectly you can’t help but want to slide your finger along it!
Next let’s take a look at her hair and facial expression! ヽ(ﾟ◇ﾟ )ﾉ
First of all note the iconic tied up hair over her shoulder! Her hair also looks a lot more ruffled than normal, further enhancing the casual look of the figure! ♪
Plus that cute open mouth!
It’s as if she was standing there waiting for her Admiral to arrive, and just as she saw him she inadvertently said “Ah”! (In my mind the story continues with the Admiral not noticing Shigure and wandering around looking for her for awhile)
The figure really does capture the scene so nicely, telling a whole story with just the one single figure!! Also take note of the details of the various accessories and details around her! For instance the camera on a strap around her neck….
The shiny-looking shoes…
The cute shoulder bag with red stitching…
And even the piles of Autumn leaves that set the season for the figure!
Be sure to take a nice close look at all the details once she joins your collection! ヽ(*´Д｀*)ﾉ
There are even details to note on the painting side of things! Even the leaves at the bottom – while mostly yellow – feature some shade of green on them, adding an extra little bit of realistic detail to the figure! ♪
If you match the angle with her gaze you get a nice upward glance peeking up over the glasses, and the higher angle also captures the details of the original illustration beautifully – note the slight slopes around her chest as well as the way the clothes distort to match them!
Truly a figure that can be enjoyed from all sorts of different angles! Be sure to find your personal favorite once she joins your collection!! ε=(｡・д・｡)
Enjoy a casual autumn day together with Shigure!
