Lucky☆Star : Izumi Konata Swim Suit Figure & T-Shirt














Advisory: One of the pics in this post can be disturbing. I have rated it R(A) 'Restricted Art'. 
(Strictly for visitors of 'Collect'em All')

Taking an open approach to toys in 2012, I will not restrict myself to just toy of a particular genre, so bear with me if you are only interested in Gundam. It is for the benefit of the general toy community. Well, you need not have to wait forever cos the next post will be a Gundam. Hee! Hee! 

I was on holiday with my kampong "family" to Batam island last November and as usual, I had brought along some figurines that I could squeeze into my luggage bag. So what did I bring? It's this HGIF gasaphon figure of Izumi Konata from 'Lucky☆Star', in her grade 6th school swimsuit. Konata made her appearance in this swimsuit, in episode 6 of 'Lucky☆Star' anime when the gals went on a beach vacation. It's also in this episode the anime did a parody of Initial D. 

The gasaphon had brought out the kawaii...ness in Konata from her mole, her lips to the Jap wordings on her swimsuit. The legs of the figure can't be bended but the arms and head can be rotated 360 degrees for more posabilities. Since Konata is in her swimsuit, I brought her to the hotel swimming pool for some outdoor action. 

On top of all, I had also worn my 'Lucky☆Star' T-shirt by Cospa, which I had bought from 'The Anime Shop'. My wifee was on her wit again to make me pose in-front of the camera in my new T-Shirt and Konata figure in my hand.

LOL.... This reminds me of a Lucky Star-type conversation we shared in office with Prim and Eric. Trust me to link our everyday lives with anime, I must be a hopeless otaku

What, no Gundam stuff, just a girl in a swimsuit. Who is that guy making that crazy face, he should see a doctor about that :D

Is it just me, or does she look drunk with that facial expression?

Ha! Ha! Life is a lot better if we are able to see it in a humorous way and laugh over some silly moments. I guess our jokes something originate from anime or manga. We are pretty much the same.... hopeless otaku.... Lol...

>> bluedrakon
Ha! Ha! Sorry to disappoint you bro... Those crazy stuff are just for laugh. ''Somebody call for a medic''. Got this from military movies... What am I saying...

Anyway, that look of konata is practically how she looked like throughout the anime.
