Thanks. Her name's Samlee (translation: "Cotton"), though she's in fact a really fidgety girl. See that darkish shadow below her ear? That's my hand holding both Hayate and my dog's head so she doesn't move so much. Took me almost 10 minutes just to get that one shot. (lol)
I still love her, by the way. WARNING! PHOTODUMP IN PROGRESS!
OK~!! This month was a bit late due to work and life, but here it is. I've been kinda busy, so there wasn't a lot of time for photo shoots. However, I do have one addition to the crew...
Finally, AGP MS少女 GP03S Stamen arrives!
So, here is Yukina... Well, let's call her Yuki instead, since "Yukina Schneileen" is the girl in all the AGP MS少女 line. Standing next to Reisen (Asuka model, MMS 1st), you can see she's quite a bit smaller. In fact, she's about the same size as Ritsu (Pomock Model, MMS 3rd). As for the paint job, well... It's Bandai. It could be worse, but this one's passable. I'm more worried about her joints, though. They might be even more fragile than Figma's (and those are rather fragile to begin with).
...And then, we were hit by a summer storm. It would've been a normal late evening downpour, if it didn't tear a piece of plastic roofing clean off. We later found it had landed in our neighbor's backyard.
So the girls had to move away from the window onto the dining table as the wind wrecked havoc on their usual display area. They ended up waiting it out in the candle light until power came back on a couple hours with Tieren-san standing guard in the back.
The girls are all doing fine. There was one casualty, however. Daigenguar-san tanked a falling lamp post and lost his left arm in the process. Considering he was on the opposite end of the table from where the lamp post was, the girls are all grateful for his sacrifice.
That morning, Reisen and Noelle went outside to do some damage assessment...
See that big green bush in the center? That's not a bush.
A branch from the mango tree broke off and knocked over a pomegranate tree, which in turn knocked over another nearby tree. It's almost completely uprooted, but thankfully the roots aren't damaged... much. It's not terribly big, so I guess it'll survive the scuffle.
Well, a storm like that does come with something of a windfall...
Mangoes. Lots of mangoes. Granted, they're not even close to ripe. They still go great as appetizers, though. Slice 'em thin and eat them with a sweet 'n' sour paste... Yum. These aren't even half the normal size for their cultivar. The ones we had last year was nearly 8" long and 4" wide.
Thank you for tuning in! See you next month!
