Figure Review: Trick or Treat with Halloween Girl (NSFW)

March 11, 2008 | Author: | In: Anime Blogs, Figures, Merchandise, Photography

As a long time figure collector the ero type of figures have never really appealed to me. The idea of having naked figure in any form would certainly bring about many questions not to just my family members, but as well as any surprise visitors to my room, lol. Of course that is only one reason but I guess the main reason is that I don’t find it very tasteful to have one. However there was one figure that had made me change my mind about all of that. Halloween Girl. Hit the jump to check out the pictures (keep in mind, this is an ero figure, so NSFW).

I first saw this figure scooped up by Shingo over at Heisei Democracy WAY back in August last year and reading that the design was done by Nanao Naru, I simply could not resist. A collaboration project between Nanao Naru and Cerebus Project’s Sunny Days was more than enough for me to order this and I was sure as hell looking forward to it arrival. And not only that, this is also my first ero figure.

Straight away the first thing that crosses my mind about this figure, cute. Upon first impressions I don’t really feel the whole erotic vibe coming from Halloween-ko despite the amount of skin on display and the flowing of her translucent cape. Of course that isn’t to say that this isn’t a sexy figure at all as she is quite slender and has some pretty nice curves, but I would definitely say it’s the whole witch’s costume that does it for me.

The other reason I see this figure as cute more than sexy is the fact that I myself can never really see Nanao Naru’s artworks as sexy. Most of her works are either really cute or very moelicious, but if any could ever point out Nanao Naru artwork with sexiness then I would be eternally grateful. But what makes this girl so cute? The large deep eyes and that surprised look whilst blushing. Big eyes like this is the one thing that draws me to anime girls.

Now I’m not expert on the female body, but I really like how slender Halloween-ko’s body is. Her torso seems rather small yet she has nice long legs and arms and if she actually stood up, she’d be pretty tall. Breasts size is quite ample and not oversized making her body proportions nice and balanced. One thing I never liked about ero figures was the oversized breasts as it looks unnatural. But that’s probably just me being a realistic person.

One thing about Halloween-ko, the base she comes with is FUCKING HUGE. It’s literally a huge giant black plate that would easily take up 1/5 of my cabinet shelf space. Though there is a good reason for it to be so huge, and that’s the inclusion of the little props. Being a Halloween Girl you can’t expect her to be alone now. Accompanying her are some very presentable ghosts which just makes both Halloween-ko and the ghosts look out of place, yet match so well together. Two pumpkins are also included with one being a jack-o-lantern.

What can I say about my first ero figure? I absolutely love her. Not because of the cast-offability but she is overall a well made figure and a very cute one at that. Her styling in clothes is appealing as well with a witch’s hat and translucent cloak, but some very short shorts and the large boots with stripped stockings is like a combination of punk and a witch cosplay outfit, with that hint of eroticism. For a 1/6 scaled figure, I was expecting some visible flaws in her production but to much of my surprise there is very little.

Painting is very spot on, but the colour sheme is very bright, yet dark as well. The diorama effect also looks good as it’s quite playful and seductive. This is also my first enterbrain figure in my collection so Halloween-ko is a welcome addition to my collection. But really, if you had a Halloween Girl like this asking you for a “trick or treat?” what would you pick? I for one would be too caught up in her cuteness to decide, lol.

Photography Notes:

Yeah once again I’ve reverted to indoor photo shoots, and for good reasons. Despite me having taken figures outside, even daring ones such as Horuichi Sana, even I have my pride and dignity as a person. Taking an ero figure outside is something I will not ever do. Not to mention can’t have little kids walking by seeing a naked figure. This time again, all photos here are taken with only one light source, with the exception of 2-3 photos. Some photos may have slight different colouring due to me spending more time than usually doing post-processing.

But I like this kind of effect from the post-processing, but on the photography side, I found reducing the reflection in her eyes to be the hardest part and did my best in reducing it. Also during post-processing, I tried to retain the skin colour look in most photos and I came pretty close to doing so. Either way,I’m happy with what I’ve done so far. But having not done any photography for about two months, feels as though I’m losing my touch, lol.

she looks great, congrats on getting an ero figure. My first was the lovely fauna, but i got her cause she was so cute. I notice with Ero figures they can be either cute and just happen to be naked like this fig rue and fauna, or they can be blatantly oversexed like the Mega House Queens blade figures. While they may look great in quality i would never own a figure like the MH Cattleya figure, it’s just a bit too bold for my taste.

Yeah, eye glare is a huge pain. Though I think once or twice the eye glare did help, but usually it is a pain.

When my local shop had her listed, she cost quite a bit of money, and seeing as I had other figures on pre-order, I didn’t bother getting her anymore. However, with these positive reviews coming out, I wonder if I really should have skipped her.
Oh well, I have Fauna if I ever need to see PVC nudity, I guess.
Oh, and the glare from her eyes is rather distracting lol

Oh come on, you don’t need to take picture of her half naked when outside ^^;
That would be just like Sana then hehe. Just kidding ;)

Cerberus Project kits are all amazing… but what a shame that they are reproduced by Enterbrain for pvc production :/
I really don’t like what they do. Such a mess, compared to ALTER or GSC figures.

off-topic note: had some trouble those days to access your blog, with some “out of memory” errors. Seems ok now, but only happens while visiting MoeMoeRabu.net :/

Bubby: I want to see you take more figure photos!

Dancing Queen: The Queens Blade figures are figures I’d like to see and admire, but probably something I would never own as they’re not really my taste either. But figures like Halloween-ko is probably the furthest I’ll ever go in terms of ero figures.

super rats: Just like some things in photo, it can’t be helped. Though if Halloween-ko’s eyes were matte instead of gloss it probably would’ve been better.

Zeroblade: She really is a good figure, and very cute one at that. If you get the chance to buy her again, you should.

ron!: I bet it’s the pumpkins. There’s just something about girls and pumpkins.

lu-k: It’s enough to have thousands of eyes upon me, but to have people question me is a different issue, lol. This would have to be my first enterbrain figure and I think the quality is well worth the price, plus the figure is of a 1/6 scale.

Yeah the site has been running rather crap these past few weeks. I may have to look into moving away from Dreamhost sooner than expected. Such is the pain of being on shared hosting.

Haha, I love the little ghosts, they’re quite cute. I’m running out of room on my desk so I probably can’t have her base on my desk lol. I should invest in detolf’s soon ^^.

[...] Big eyes like this is the one thing that draws me to anime girls. [...]

I believe big eyes her refers to her boobs. Don’t you think so too? :p

The background in this shoot doesn’t seem to match with her clothes.. I think you could try purple instead.

Eye glare is such a pain!

AS: A detolf case is nice, but very restrictive. Better off looking for a proper large display cabinet. Trust me, it’s well worth the extra money compared to buying the detolf.

Windbell: “Big eyes” I’ll let you interpret what I meant with that :P But yeah, eye glare is such a pain.

Whoa, nice~

I really wanted this figure but had to pass due to my spending restrictions I’ve placed on myself (now i can shout out restriction seal level 5 clear! when i buy a figure).

I kinda figured her base was big, but from what you said it seems massive o_o

I had my first ero figure from my Japan trip, the Hinata Hiiragi from Hinataboko.

Aww, it would of been nice to see you take photos of her outdoors. My first experience of this was with my Ymir (cast off-able top and skirt/panties) but the photos came out crap… so it was a wasted effort OTL

I also like girls with nice big eyes, but the eyes can’t be so big that they start to look down =/
