Pot Luck February Haul

February 18, 2009

Why pot luck? This haul is a combination of very different otaku objects that are edible, readable, playable, and stareable 🙂 . I got a haul real soon after this one and in my picture taking excitment my poor Rin Figma and Danboard Revoltech accidentally got skipped. But that’s ok, as much as I love posing Figmas the poses I love are pretty boring in comparison to what other bloggers do. Plus once I get to a pose I consider a “sweet spot” I don’t want to move it until I feel I’m ready for a change. I worry I won’t get the pose EXACTLY how I want it again. It’s almost like the whole point of Figmas and Revoltechs is lost on me 😛

Usually my first picture is of all the figures in their boxes but I thought doing it this way looked much nicer. The picture of the pile of boxes is a bit further down the post. As you can see I’ve made use of that cloth I bought from Walmart, I actually used all 4 pieces as backgrounds in this haul. I’m really fond of polka dot patterns, I’m unsure if I like the cloth wrinkled (to add texture) or ironed flat. Next time I get fabric I think I’m in need of a blood red background for the dangerous ladies! Also you might have noticed I’ve tried to put in more effort in my lighting. It’s not perfect yet but I think I made a big step in the right direction. I used all the advice everyone gave me and used white poster to reflect light, all spectrum bulbs, and tracing paper to disperse the light better.
