Nendoroid Madoka Kaname Maiko Ver: Golden Week

I decided to post new photos early because I’ll be gone for a week for another summer getaway trip.

Golden Week starts in Japan on April 29 until May 5, these dates are the most popular time to travel.  During this time of the year, many Japanese take paid off for leisure trips and many company are closed to give their employees time off. While there are also some activities in celebration of the National Holidays.

I decided to start a Koinobori-themed photo set featuring Nendoroid Madoka Kaname: Maiko Ver by Good Smile Company. I also made a bridge and paper craft carp streamers for the Golden Week. This is the first half of the set, I’ll be taking more photos when I get back before the Golden Week ends. I haven’t packed my things and I have to leave tomorrow morning!

Nendoroid Madoka Kaname Maiko Ver was available in Japan expo July last year, but mine arrived before Christmas. Madoka has been patiently waiting for me to unbox her. Finally, the day has come.


When I saw her in Kahotan’s Blog, I decided right away that I’m going to get her. I love Madoka’s Kimono design and color. Everything about this Nendoroid is filled with cuteness and awesome accessories too!










Madoka and Sawako are such a good pair for the Golden Week.


Oops, it’s a different story. Watch out for the next story of Sawako-chan’s encounter with the young boy 😛

I’ll see you guys when I come back from vacation with more Madoka Kaname Maiko ver photos! ~ヾ(^∇^)

      Thank you Michael!
      It’d be great to have Miku Kimono nendoroid with Madoka too. 😉

    Perfect and lovely! Get me a question: How do you leave them standing without support?

    1. sheng says:

      I’m glad you liked the set!
      I used thin wire and blue tack for support. I will try to make a video tutorial when I have time ^_^

    Oh that is such a sweet setup, this little Madoka is simply adorable (‐^▽^‐)
    The pictures turned out quite amazing, the bridge and the fish flags have a convincing look.

    1. sheng says:

      Thank you very much! I’m happy you liked it. I’m not satisfied at first because there was a plan that didn’t really worked out. Will try to do it next time 😉

  8. Wow… your photoshoots never fail to impress! How long did you spend on that background? _<

    1. sheng says:

      Thank you very much!
      It took me half day working on the bridge and another half for the carp streamers 😉

  9. Tian says:

    Good work! I think Madoka’s design works best as a Nendoroid because of her head proportions.

    And Golden Week always makes me think of Persona 4 for some reason…

    1. sheng says:

      Madoka looks like a baby in Kimono haha ❤ 😀

  10. donde las venden 🙂
