Building NYC

NYC Diorama BuildOnce and a while, whenever I build a diorama for my figure photos, I like to post some behind-the-scenes photos as people seem to enjoy looking at them. Usually I’ll just post a pic or two, but for more involved builds I try to document my process a bit more so I can share it around. Photographing in-progress work not only helps me, as it gives me a reference incase I forget how I did something, but it also hopefully helps others and maybe provides a bit of inspiration for you all to try it yourself!

Today we’re going to look at a diorama project that I’ve been slaving away at for the past few weeks.

Building Honnouji Academy

Those of you who have been following me for a while probably know by now that I’m a huge Kill la Kill fan. Needless to say I was pretty excited once the Fight Club Mako nendoroid came out, and once I got my hands on her, I knew I wanted to do something special.

I’ve been wanting to make a guide like this for a while, so at last here it is! Today we’re going to be reviewing how to spot and avoid fake nendoroids.

How to Spot a Fake Nendoroid

Nendoroid Storage

Stack of Nendoroid Boxes

One problem I’ve encountered as my nendo collection grew bigger over time was how to manage all the parts that come with them. I used to store them in their boxes, but it got to the point where it was a pain to take out the box and remove the parts. As you can see, my stack of nendoroid boxes is starting to grow tall ^^. This made it a pain to have to remove a box from the stack and open it up, then have to put it back again. Continue reading

‘Nendoroid Planet’ iPhone app mini-guide

Nendoroid Planet iPhone App

For those of you who haven’t heard yet, Goodsmile Company came out recently with an iphone app titled Nendoroid Planet. Being an avid nendoroid fan, I was overjoyed to hear that there was now an app featuring nendoroids. I downloaded the app right away and began playing with it. So I though I might as well post something highlighting the app and giving a mini-guide on how to operate the app and play the game.

Above we have the main screen that you see when you start the app. Click the button on the upper left to start. Continue reading
