My 2nd Caren Hortensia figure which I bought from Anime North 2008 back in May. The first one is made by Griffon Enterprise (check my entry for the other Caren Hortensia figure) while this one is made by Kotobukiya. It’s an old figure and originally released in September 2006. Hobby Link Japan has this figure in stock in case anyone is interested ^^.
I wish I know more about Caren aside from the obvious source (wiki) and other various anime site. I haven’t played the game so I don’t really know a lot about her and I don’t think I am going to play the game anytime soon ^^;; since it’s in Japanese.
For this photoshoot, I decided to use yellow background just because I feel like it lol and since Caren’s clothes are mostly black, the yellow background blends easily with black clothers (at least I think so ^^). After couple photoshoot sessions, I suddenly feel like doing outdoor photo shoot. It was cloudy when I did it but it didn’t really stop. The setting was on my house backyard which is unattended and makes a great place for outdoor photo shoot sessions.
This figure comes with a base but I decided not to use it.
I have nothing to complain regarding this; good sculpture and nice painting all around. I love details on her eyes ,although, the wooden base could have been better. I think the outdoor photo shoot came out better than the indoor ones. It seemed to come out little bit darker than I expected. What do you guys think ?
