Fun in the Snow~

A few days ago, a blizzard hit NYC and completely covered it in huge piles of snow. I decided to take advantage and snap a few shots of my two girls (Azusa and Miku). Well, that failed horribly -_-; I've walked in blizzards before but this one was too intense! I could barely keep any of my Nendoroids standing and my fingers were frozen, making it difficult to pose them. Plus, to get good shots, I had to literally lay on the snow with my camera to snap a photo at their level. My whole body went numb @_@

I laugh at myself because I'd always see other otakus take lovely pictures of their dollies and figures and think "Meh, I can do that." I really didn't expect being a figure photographer would be so challenging. I don't know how they do it, but now that I've had a taste of it myself, I applaud those who take such amazing pictures in different types of environments and weather scenarios. *claps*

This is my sad attempt at taking photos of them in the snow. Most of them don't even count because I actually took them indoors by my room window ;___; I also hated the fact that I was going to take shots of them without something to keep them warm. So I dug through my arts and crafts box and found myself some felt which I used to make them mini scarfs. At first I thought it would look stupid, but after taking a few shots, I was surprised at how nice they came out. They really look nice and warm!~

As for how my Christmas went; it was pretty nice. Spent it with my mother and a friend eating some honey glazed ham and drinking coquito (a yummy holiday drink made of coconut milk with some white rum). It was really peaceful. No presents though ;_; So I did myself the favor and ordered a new Nendoroid! Takane Manaka from Love Plus. She's super adorable and on sale for $20 at Hobby Search! I can't wait to make a cute little mini scarf for her too. What color should I make hers?


  1. Wow! Those pics are really cute! I especially like the last one. Nice work!

  2. I want one of these nenodroids so badly! Sucks I can't get them.
