To think you could make use of those hand parts to recreate a present opening scene! Genius!! It’s amazing what poses you can create with a little ingenuity!!

If you take a close look at each of the Touken Nendoroids, each character has been posed with a special role for Christmas! (*´∀`*)

All of the Aqours Nendoroids dressed up in the Santa outfits that were released earlier this year!! Even though the poses are quite limited with these parts, these photos successfully bring out each of the girl’s characters! You can really feel the love for Aquors in these photos!

I took a lot of photos with cats for the April Fools Joke earlier this year, but most of them were always running around and making it hard for me to photograph! It’s lovely to see a kitty together with a Nendoroid in a much more relaxed pose!! ★

A rather different photo to most of the others, but that’s what makes it so special! The use of little extra parts and the background to add that little extra Christmas feel are all lovely… and the way Miku is staring right at me is lovely!

A Christmas morning filled with all sorts of fun and gifts! The lighting and use of all sorts of little parts really brings the scene to life! ♪

I hope everyone enjoyed the photos as much as I did! Thanks again to everyone who took part!
