Okay, yes I do know that this figurine has been long released. Many would have photoshoots of Nao as well. But I decided to do this one anyway. :)
This figurine is by Good Smile Factory and released on January 25 2006 at 4,001yen. Sculpted by Hiro, this is a very highly detailed figurine that is absolutely top-notch.
Nao comes with a long rod/staff and a nice pastel colored pink base. It has a screw-type of base of which holds her down firmly. I am not worried about this figurine bending as it’s center of gravity is pretty much near the center. The staff that comes along with it can be easily slotted through Nao’s hands. You can also place other stuff (so long she can grasp it). I especially like this figurine as
1.) Very nice paint work
2.) Cute expression
3.) Nice curves
Now, let’s see the pictures :)
The weather was terrible today, it rained late afternoon till about 9 in the evening. I originally had plans to do a outdoor shoot for Nao, but seems like this indoor shoot is equally good.
I really like the hair flow for this one. Nicely tied up and colored.
This figurine doesn’t have much embroideries, which is actually good. Keep it simple, clean and neat :)
Dark colored sockings. Good tones on it.
One of the worthy things to note about this figurine would be the translucent dress. It brings out a certain attractiveness which I can’t explain :/
Platform shoes. I still do see people wearing these in real life.
Location of Photoshoot
I actually did this one in the kitchen. On the selves (Is that what they are called? I can’t remember) between the washing basin and the stove. Switched off the main lights and threw in the spot lights. It got kinda hot after some shoots though ^^;
Canon Digital EOS 400D + EF-S18-55mm lens (standard len that came with the kit). Shot using manual mode, with ISO at 200 and exposure at 1.1
I’ll upload the high resolution pictures at a later part, as those are really big. About 40 times bigger (filesize wise) compared to what’s seen over here :)
