Meshi here, ready to deliver another heaping helping of figure previews! Did you have any imaginary friends when you were a kid? As far as I can remember I didn't, but I'm making so many as a grownup! Take today's figure, for example. Let's dig in!
Closing your third eye doesn't hide you from my camera's lens, Koishi!
Her two open eyes are color coordinated with her outfit and its wealth of frills. With how heavy those eyelashes look its a wonder that her third eye was ever able to open in the first place!
Clever use of clear parts in her cuffs and gradient paint in the skirt add to the gentle motion of the figure. Lovely as they are you might miss the flowers printed on her skirt at first glance, just like its wearer.
That floaty-free feeling looks even better when viewed from above!
But maybe it's best when viewed from below...?
It's the little details that really work their way into your subconscious, like the rhyming hearts on her boot heels and eye cord. Even if her powers make you forget her as soon as you look away you'll be left with the feeling that you'd been looking at something special.
Transparent parts in her frills, ribbon and hair add to Koishi's mystique and let her take on the colors and texture of her environment. Here's her with a vibrant background...
...a then a cool palate followed by heavy back lighting. Contrary to her character this is definitely NOT a figure that's going to go by unnoticed in your collection!
