This is Fumie and she is from the eroge Edelweiss, the figure is by Orchid Seed. I actually didn’t realize Edelweiss was an eroge until after I bought the figure (not that knowing that would have stopped me), she just didn’t seem like an eroge character. I’m not used to eroge characters looking this badass and strong. It was a difficult to get the lighting right with that background so at the end of the review I have a few pictures of her in front of a white background. I’m pretty sure this figure was inspired by a drawing of her in this pose but I can’t find that piece of art at the moment. This review is WORK SAFE.
This is the kind of figure that just embodies having a beautiful flow to it. The wind flowing through the hair and billowing dress allow me to forgive the few imperfections this figure has here and there. Sometimes it seems like to have an outside the box artistic figure of a character (that might not otherwise have a figure made of) you need to sacrifice a bit of quality. After all Alter can’t make figures of all the gorgeous characters out there, they have to pick and choose. What imperfections do I speak of? Well there are some mold lines and some rough patches here and there that aren’t noticeable for the most part. They don’t bother me at all, but they might bother someone who values quality above all else in their figures.
Look at that beautiful back…Fumie is one of those figures that just NEEDS to be put in a glass case so you can see her from all sides. Fumie is the second figure I own that is intended to be viewed from behind, I angle mine a bit so you can see her face a bit better. I just love figures that are designed to be viewed from all sides. Also for those who don’t know Fumie is actually going commando. I didn’t bother taking pictures because there isn’t much up there, it’s just nude. I don’t know why but the fact that she is going commando in such a girlie gown just makes her 100 times more badass. I should mention her guns come with a cute case but because I like her holding her guns it’s a nice addition but really pointless for me. I could have the case empty at her feet, but I didn’t want anything to distract from the figure itself.
Here is her with a white background. I was having a hard time telling how much that red background was influencing her skin tone in the pictures so I’m putting up a few of a plain background just in case.
I don’t 100% trust Orchid Seed yet (sometimes their figure designs are too off the mark from my personal tastes). But if they do make something like this again, I won’t hesitate to buy.
