Whilst there aren’t so many Black Lotus figures, there’s plenty of Kuroyukihime… so here’s one more!
This figure was nicer out of the box than I was expecting. The mask is painted well, the dress has some shading, and her face looks really nice. Also the base isn’t boring and plain.
The eyes are nicely detailed, and don’t feel as overly heavy in the linework as the ones on the FuRyu one I looked at recently. I love the butterfly attaching her collar to her dress, and the rose is a nice addition.
The colours complement each other well, and are within the lines. Is a really nice piece.
These butterflies are silver and are decently reflective. It goes well with the dressed-up party theme. Her shoes do look a bit on the “painted on” side. but aren’t too bad imo.
Her hair isn’t shaded, but I don’t think it detracts that much from the figure. Having the dress shaded though does make a good bit of difference to the look of the figure and I’m glad they did it. Here you can see the shading they have on the back of her legs – from the side it looks OK, but from the back it looks kind of like she has sunburn.
She has a nice armband on this side – butterfly-themed ofc :). I like the way her hands are posed as it gives a sense of motion to her. Most of the hair is stranded, which makes it look good.
Here you can see the sunburn on the back of her legs. Her legs are nicely shaped though, and her hair is sculpted nicely.
Overall, I really like this figure. I may get the recoloured variant at some point in the future. Super-glad I picked this one up.
