Looking down at the address hastily written on a piece of paper, I quickly headed down as I’ve heard I could get to taste Tsukino’s legendary buns that she bakes with skill and love. All I could think about was getting some of those buns and a shot of the baker herself.
Her place was near the beach, and when I arrived, I got more than I had bargained for. Tsukino was in her finest bikini waiting for me.
“Let’s go then” she then said.
Review of Tsukino Azusagawa (Swimsuit Version) from Alter
Tsukino Azusagawa, the illegitimate child of the Azusagawa family, changes out of her usual baker’s attire and dons a pink striped bikini, an attire which I would be glady to see. This is the second figure of her from Alter, sculpted by Saito Fumuki.
As far as baker girls go, I think that Tsukino is one that I would want. Her first figure, which has her in the usual baker’s attire, giving that cheeky expression was great, but this swimsuit figure has bought the standards to a new level.
The overall look of this figure has been very nicely fitted together, no unnecessary bits and pieces that stick out like a sore thumb, just the girl, the bikini, and the twintail hair. I really do like the curve she has on her stomach, as it pretty much defines Tsukino’s slender body.
Most of the detail sculpting is in her hair, where there is a number of rendered strands, though the front strands looks a bit weird, I didn’t really mind them.
Tsukino is a free-standing figure, which requires no base to support her up, though the manufacturer have included a textured round base that looks like sand.

This shoot presented a new challenge to me as it was my first taking figures using a white background. Shots taken have an exposure of +1 step and at a F number of 8.
Do feel that the background’s a little dark, I probably got to add another lamp?
Auto-leveling in Photoshop followed by a couple of photo filter effects.
Borrowed the straw hat and shoes from Asuka’s Summer Set (She tsun-ed for a bit ^^;) and got that bench from Daiso for 2 SGD.
Better photos that beat the 7 shades out of me over at super rats.
