Wang Liu Mei
Another figure which was released last year that I really like is this figure of Wang Liu Mei from Gundam 00 wearing a traditional cheongsam chinese dress.
Sumeragi Lee Noriega is my fave character in Gundam 00 but figures based on Sumeragi is just too plain looking whereas this version of Wang Liu Mei is very open to a lot of photographic possibilities.
I was contemplating on using a bunch of traditional chinese items to use as background, such as an antique vase or even a lucky chinese cat which is used for Feng Shui but ultimately decided on a handcrafted rendition of a chinese temple which my Dad bought from China years ago.
Not much need for a proper review on this figure since there’s already a bunch of photoshoot reviews of this figure out there. Which means there’s probably a lot of figure collectors who already have this figure.
The sezzy appeal of Wang Liu Mei is just too hard to resist. =p
This got me thinking, how do girls fit into those slinky cheongsam dresses anyway? O_O
Especially if they’ve got a body like Liu Mei’s. @_@
Wang Liu Mei got tired posing against that handcrafted background and decided to pose in more natural surroundings instead.
