    lotus8 kuukautta sitten#74318761Yeah, I usually don't make a lot of big purchases, and just end up enjoying figures from (user) pictures instead. Fortunately, I don't get hung up on things too often when I miss out, so that helps too, and when I do, it's a sign I can splurge for once, haha.
    As far as I know, we don't have a lot of local shops that carry figures, but of the ones I do know, they are mostly overpriced that even with customs and fees included, it's cheaper to order online.
    Nowadays I tend to do that as well with figures that didn't make the cut for whatever reason (mostly money, space or the fact that a given figure doesn't fit in with the rest of my collection). I kinda get that feeling, if you're hung up for a long time that's a good sign you want a figure. :3
    Yeah, it's the same over here, although we do have quite a few shops. In very rare cases it can bea bit cheaper to order from a local shop, but in the end I mostly stick to overseas (for preorders) beacause I'm a very impatient person. x3

    broken-Toybox8 kuukautta sitten#74258051Thank you! :3
    The set is really something else with it's beautiful color-scheme and vibe. :3
    They are and you're right about the prices increasing, more often than not I see myself passing on new figures these days because I just can't justify paying that much. While I have my preferences in this set as well that's decision only you can make. Collections are a highly individual thing after all.
    Customs... well, I've always calculated prices with that in mind since my packages always get caught (I refuse to use certain shops and mostly use EMS shipping for figures). But I get not wanting to bother with that. Are local shops an option for you or are they grossly overpriced?

    lotus8 kuukautta sitten#74257341I only recently came across this White Day set, but I love the soft pastel colors and outfits so much! I don't buy a lot of scale figures because I feel they are quite pricey (and are often only getting more expensive), but I'd love to add either Kotori and/or Umi to my collection. I'm mostly debating which to buy first, as I prefer Kotori's pose, but I really like Umi's dress :3 (I would probably wait a bit though, as lately a lot of my family's packages have gotten caught by customs.)
    Thanks for sharing all your pictures and your thoughts on the figure, I really enjoyed reading your review! :>
    Thank you! :3

    Cloudberry8 kuukautta sitten#74257281Thanks for the pictures and review! Umi is gorgeous and I really like her pose; the way she is sitting with her dress covering her legs and holding the petal is very fairytail and princess-like *^.^*
    I really like her garter frills and ribbon on her arm! I didn't think they were necessary on Umi but since her legs are pretty much covered, seeing it on her arms made her extra cute and didn't make her too tacky.
    My favorite, besides her frills, is her leg bangle. It adds an extra elegant dimension to Umi <3
    Ikr? I wouldn't be surprised to see her on a field of flowers with little fairies flying about. ꈍ .̮ ꈍ
    I don't think they're necessary either, but they're not too much either (always a tricky balance to maintain).
    The bangle also kinda connects the other little gold accessories/highlights with each other imo. They sure went all out with her design.

    BHEITHIR8 kuukautta sitten#74194289Lol i guess we know what each others have been through, then. XD
    That's right! I'm just wondering a lot on how and since when i get into this 'Idol-ish' & 'beautiful-colored' figures? Usually i'm easily tempted by bewbs but i found out that there's still so many that deserves a try! Now i'm hooked with Love Live! lol XD
    Well, exerting control too much always seemed kinda boring to me, so it's fine this way isn't it?^^ I actually feel like I'd have missed out massively if I wasn't into impulse (pre)orders.
    Haha, judging from your collection I assumed as much. x3
    While writing my reply yesterday I wondered the exact same thing about the idols though.I was also pretty sure ITEM #501857 was the first idol figure to make me succumb but she was only the first one I didn't even know as a character. ITEM #549458 & ITEM #549455 were my first idol figures (still favs to this day, especially Rin). But honestly there are so many great idol figures I'd love to get. (πーπ)

    broken-Toybox8 kuukautta sitten#74193168The wings are great as well, love all the sparkles. ♡
    Errr, well... about half my collection is based on "ohmygawd he/she looks so pretty aljfbkbfk.bfdhkbfkyduhf!!!" so I know a thing or two about being easily tempted as well. x3
    Nothing wrong with that if you like her and can afford her though, right?

    BHEITHIR8 kuukautta sitten#74192904True! The blue is so eye-candy! Not forget to mention her pretty Ribbon. <3
    Well, it's good for you since that's the problem with me. I'm an easily tempted person. T_T
    I've just ordered her from Amiami T_T

    She does, especially the skirt... it really grew on me (love the different shades of blue).
    If Nozomi would fit in with other figures in my collection I'd have caved long ago, because she looks beautiful, but somehow I actually do have some restraint.
