Just on the day of Christmas, I was out at the park for a quiet near-evening walk when I chanced upon Kureha over at a lonely spot.
She was gazing out at the moon, with this sophisticated but attractive look on her face. I didn’t realize her beauty only after looking through the viewfinder. Damn, I must have been blind or something.
\Review of Kureha from Max Factory/
I realized that what makes Kureha this attractive is not just her curvaceous body, but instead, her gaze that she makes which seems she’s remembering something of the past.
The design and sculpt of the figure is absolutely one of the best, although there are some debris here and there. I really love the unique sleeve design and the scarf-like thing around her neck.
One thing I probably didn’t like at first was the way her leg was positioned, but after several viewings of the figure, I though it was pretty nice pose. Cutesy.

I was actually pretty disappointed with how the photos turned out, except for the first shot that was actually taken 2 weeks prior. The shots for this shoot turned out rather overexposed and there was this faint hint of yellow tint even after doing a custom WB.
Table set-up of this shoot was different as I used my sister’s table. It was larger so I though there would be more space to work around with. Will probably do a re-take in the future ^^;
Did auto-leveling followed by various photo filter and/or a bit of curve adjustments inbetween.
