Today’s figure photography spotlight is from the popular web browser game series Kantai Collection Cu-poche Inazuma by Kotobukiya.
It was great to know that Kotobukiya has decided to make a Cu-poche version of these group of Kancolle girls including Inazuma. I didn’t play the game but I have watched the anime. Watching all the Kancolle girls, I find Inazuma and the rest of her group really adorable. They are the little ones. I can’t wait to see them all in Cu-poche form. For those who are new to Cu-poche figures. These are articulated chibis that will let you pose them in all cutest way possible and that’s what I’m gonna show you today.
Thanks to Kotobukiya for sending her in! She’s a nice addition to my collection. ❤ Photos are taken with Sony A7 Mark II / FE 5mm 1.8 ZA
Let’s take a closer look.The package includes Inazuma in her sailor uniform, 3 face plates (troubled, smiling, crying face) and her weapons. Of course, optional hand parts and magnetic stand base are also included.
I’m Inazuma. Pleased to meet you.
“This is so embarrassing!”
I really like time of peace like this too, when nothing is happening..
Inazuma starts to make some curry!
– BEHIND THE SCENE –
I went to our vegetable garden and set up a little forest world for her. I used plastic (artificial) flowers and scattered around her.
Did you ever wonder about the water in the first set of photos? No need to make a diorama, a blue cellophane plastic wrap can do the trick. I had her photo taken at about 11am-12noon, when sun is directly hitting the sheet of plastic creating those effects. I had to crop the photo to make it appear like Inazuma is in the ocean. (It’s gonna be hot, don’t forget to apply your sunscreen or sunblock lotion) :p
