Nendoroid Children’s Day

Anyway, it might be a bit late to post these adorable Nendoroid Miku Hatsune Append, Saber Lily and Honma Meiko (Menma) photos celebrating Children’s Day. Better late than never right?

Children’s Day in Japan is celebrated on May 5, a national holiday that takes place annually. I decided to make a koinobori props for this photo shoot.


Miku is wearing a yukata which is originally from an old doll I bought. I hate this faceplate of Miku Append, it looks like a bootleg. Ugh!

I bought Nendoroid Saber Lily recently and she’s really beautiful. This faceplate of hers is my favorite.


Here’s one picture of Menma:

I still have a couple of ideas for next toy photography project.

I might be taking pictures of Cu-Poche Madoka of Kotobukiya, please look forward to it.  ^_^

I used watercolor pencil to make the carp streamers’ colors alive. It didn’t really show on the picture since most of the time it’s in bokeh. I tried to set to higher aperture (f 4) but it didn’t come out what I want. Of course, I will keep this props and probably  make use of this next year. 😉


My Story during photo shoot:

I woke up early this morning to go to the nearest Community Park, 20 minutes away from home.  I originally planned to shoot last Friday, but I had to go somewhere else for my family. I didn’t want to go there on a weekend because I know there will be a lot of people.

As I was about to go home, I had a little accident.  It started to rain and I ran, and didn’t see the sign above me in a Mall’s parking lot. My head hit some kind of metal plate that has “Parking this way” written on it.It hurt so bad. Part of my hair were cut off long strands. My scalp got a small cut and bled a little.  So yeah… Today was really one of the unluckiest day of my life. I will just wait for that portion of hair to grow back and I will have to cut my hair really short soon. 😦


See you guys on my next post!

    Nice job with the streamers, great photos. must have taken a lot of time to do, but definitely worth it!

    It’s never too late for adorable photos of nendos! =3 Nice carp streamers btw!

    Sorry bout your head though, good thing it wasn’t too serious right? We just get unlucky sometimes. 🙂

    1. sheng says:

      I got scared and panicked for a while as I brushed my hair off my face as I ran, and there I saw lots of hair in my hands… But I am glad and thankful that It;s not something serious. @_@

      1. darkandchoco says:

        yes, just be thankful it’s not serious. 🙂 We can still continue our hobby haha 🙂

      2. sheng says:

        I was thinking back then, good thing my camera is safe as well as my nendoroids. Lol :))

    Thank goodness the knock isn’t something serious. Props to you for such a nice set up! You inspire me to try making some props for my stories.

    1. sheng says:

      It’s fun making props for your nendos, combine it with miniature food and accessories from re-ment/orkara or Sylvannian families ^_^

  6. Mallix says:

    Be careful next time Sheng! Your nendos will comfort you with your cut ^_^

    Stellar photoshoot btw, I just want to know how you made Saber stand on her own?
    I can’t seem to find hook wires in the local malls. Will floral wires suffice?

    Thanks again for the tips and inspirations!

    1. sheng says:

      Yes I will be careful next time and will always keep an umbrella inside my bag.
      Since Saber is using Yune’s body, i still used it’s stand (without the base). I just tried to hide it through different angles so that it won’t be that visible in the picture.

      If the floral wires are hard enough to make nendoroids stable then I think it’ll work just fine. You can also use bobby pins or paper clips 😉

      Thank you for the visit, I’m glad you liked this set of photos. ^^

  7. Great photos with cute nendoroid.
