I also have to say the glasses are awesome on her. But then I like anything that makes Ravina more distinct from the typical 'Strarf' persona (Outside from work, of course)
Aren't those HomuHomu's glasses? Or Does Ravina really come with those? :o Anyway both look awesome! I still need to pay for my Tempesta, and then gather up some moolah quick so that I can still grab Ravina too, she's too good to pass up. (or to wait and let the prices rise like crazy) I tried asking AmiAmi if they include the Strarf Mk.2 bookmark with these, and got a reply that they "should" be included.

If you've preordered or ordered early enough you should be getting the bookmark. And yeah, those are figma Homu's glasses. The only Shinki with glasses remains Bright Feather. :/

PO'd Tempesta at the same time as Fubuki, great! I really like that bookmark. They should give these kinds of bonuses with Shinkis more often. And they should make more Shinki meganekkos. Homu's glasses really would look good on Ravina if you could actually make her wear those. B)

A big if. If you look at both Ravina pics featuring the glasses, you'll notice Ravina's holding them in place with her hand so it doesn't seem likely they fit properly.

Yeah, noticed that too. Homu's glasses are made of softer plastic than Bright Feather's, so you can carefully bend them to fit some shinki heads, like seen in my pic of Yda that I linked earlier. The issue is whether the hair sculpt will get in the way of the glasses or not. But I bet it would be easy to modify the glasses to go on Ravina nicely, if anyone wants to do that to theirs.

I would try if the Homura figma was mine, but it's my bf's. And the second one (and the wonfest exclusive one that I have on order) is my brother's.

The bookmark that comes with the FAPs also has Strarf Mk.2 wearing glasses. They should make a real megane Strarf next, so that we don't all need to hunt down Homus to get glasses for our shinkis. :P (it's sad that the only "official shinki glasses" don't fit on anyone else besides Bright Feather.)

Get the wonfest Homu rather than the standard, it has better weapons in my opinion.
And show us some pics of the full package when they arrive, please? I really want to see that awesome tiara! :)

I finally paid my Tempesta, but AmiAmi is marked to be "closed" today, so they'll probably send my package tomorrow. I had to use my points because my bank account lacked something like 1€ from the full sum. :rolleyes: Now to wait for 1½ - 3 weeks for her arrival.

yeah I bought the WonFest Homu from GSC along with Snow Miku, so I'll be having 2 Madoka girls in Uniform
and 2 sets of glasses!

Tempesta will be a lovely surprise at your doorstep

Actually, I had gotten a set of glasses (To replace Bright Feather's broken ones) and I found the biggest issue with glasses on Strarf/Ravina is there's nowhere for the stems to go. She has very thickly molded hair on either side of her head and no ears, so it doesn't really work. No matter how badass it looks.

why not use thin wire at the ends of the glasses stems to wrap it around her head?
