1/7 Takako Kinoshita China Dress Version Kotobukiya

Name: Takako Kinoshita China Dress Version
Anime/Bishoujo Game: Pia Carrot 3
Company: Kotobukiya
Sculpted by: Hajime Ishizuka
Price: 6090 Yen
Released: 13th May 2004
Added to collection: 12th January 2006

This is one of the masterpieces in my collection (it is the most expensive one!). When I first saw her (on ebay, i think) I knew that I had to buy her even though I had no idea who she was or where she came from. It was her dress and its details which caught my eye- the roses pattern and the chinese seal on the pearl-white qi pao (that's the name of the chinese dress) with golden linings. Her hair and her hair-tie blowing in the wind makes the figure more 'dynamic' (which makes a figure interesting). Her eyes and face are faultless. The shading on her stockings and the dimsum steam container thing (whatever she's holding) was done very well.

Kotobukiya, however, could've done a better job in getting rid of the mold-lines (as usual along the thighs and arms) for a figure this grade. The molding finishing could've been better. They also didn't add any shading to the skin - so it has a monotonous plastic look and feel to it. Oh and lastly, they forgot to put her right earing! - but you can't notice it too much since the right side of her face is hidden by her hair.

If I had her as a waitress I wouldn't mind eating dimsum 3 meals a day! This photo set is one of my earlier attempts in figurine photography so some of them might be a bit dark. But the first photo is quite perfect i think.

well, you're not expecting me to eat ANYTHING under the sun, right? even in fear factor they have incentives to eat who-knows-what. of course, if you serve me dim sum wearing even your big lab coat, then i'll gladly eat it since i love dimsum:P

you wont have to worry since, on this blog, i'll delete any rubbish comments.

i doubt you'd feel threatened by unreal girls, right? you might be disconcerted:p but then i DON'T fantasize anime girls (nor milla).

alas, you can't forget the charms of ali- his spells casted on you have long-lasting effects:(
