While many Japanese gardens had nice kimono girls in it, this one had a more than just the usual. I was on paid assignment to do a shoot for a very elegant lady – Char Rhousemann.
Having arrived at her place a little earlier, the lady was practicing a little swordskill, one that I always been fascinated about. I began taking shots, while the lady was deep in her practice.
Review of Char Rhousemann (Shuraki Box 03) from Good Smile Company
“WOW!” was the first thing I could utter when I first saw Char Rhousemann. Scuplted in great detail and utmost precision, I almost dare not take her out from the box in fear of dust spoiling her image.
As far as sexy girls with swords go, I feel that Char would be the best out there at the moment. Sure there’s cutesy Shana while her flashy pantsu and delicious loli body, but in terms of curves and sultriness, Char has set a very high level for the rest to beat.
There are 3 ways you can dress her up in, fully clothed, ripped clothes and casted-off (Unless you consider bukkake as a fourth… ^^;). While Char looks nice fully clothed, I actually prefer her without her sleeves, which reveals her armpits and show some skin there, taking the sexiness of this figure to a even higher level.
Detail-wise, I think that the sculptors have done a great job in paying detail to every single part of the figure – The hair, the face, the body and even the “eyes”! And she has very sexy legs indeed. Just look at those! (Not forgetting the eyes as well! おっぱいはおいしいそう！
Char stands on a floor-textured base, which has 3 pegs to support her. I very much prefer her in ripped clothes, which very much suits the condition of the base.
One thing I didn’t like about this figure’s is how the paint from the clothes gets onto the figure. Maybe it was because I was too excited to get Char out of those clothes.. which left a ugly paint mark from her ripped clothes ORZ

The standard 2 lights with diffusers set up. Majority of the photos have been taken at a manual mode , while the rest were at A-DEP (Automatic Depth of View). Have also tried manual focus which was a great learning experience for me.
As for the EXIF of the photos, most have been taking using an ISO of 100, and at f/8. Post-processing included auto-leveling, curves adjustments (for certain photos) and photo filters to enhance the red and bring out more color for the skin.
And no lolis or was Noumi Kudryavka hurt in this shoot.
Got the Japanese Garden Lamp-like thing from Daiso at 2 SGD.
