Faint chanting can be heard from the crowd far away, but I concentrated on my own world. I needed to make sure I was calm and focused. If I messed up, I would not only disappointing myself but those in the crowd as well. All that I have worked for has come to this moment. When I would be able to go on stage and have my dream come true. I remember how I first heard about it as a child on the television. The people on that stage for shining like stars and never had their shine go away.
As I walk forward I can hear the chanting grow louder and louder. My legs shake slightly with each step, as if the weight of the world was coming down upon me with each “clack” noise I hear from my sandals hit the smooth concrete. Everything was setup on the stage for me as I peered from behind the stage. Thousands of eyes were looking for any inch of me to come onto the stage to know that the event would start soon. I can feel the sweat forming in my gloved hand as I try to calm down. The chanting has grown to a level where all I could think of was my name as they chanted it.
I step out from beyond the curtain to find a crowd who suddenly grew from a loud chant to silence. After I pick up my guitar I step forward to the mike and take a deep breath.
Chua Churam is her name and being a public idol while secretly being a vampire is her game. She comes from the ChuxChu Idol eroga.
This was a lovely gift from Tomoyo ^_^.
I believe she was one of my top wants for figures when I saw her. I can’t be sure now as I believe my mind updated my wants list after I got her lol. I believe the best part of her is the huge amount of ruffles on her dress. I’m not a huge fan of ruffles now mind you, but I loved how they were able to get the detail for it, as if she just jumped up and falling back down again with different parts of her ruffled dress being in a wave motion.
Her sandals and gloves fit nicely on her, which gives her a slimmer image. In her right hand you can see she has a pink guitar pick as well. I love her fangs too lol. I’m not a vampire lover *cough* Twilight *cough* but I love fangs on girls like Chua.
The flower on top of her head is semi-transparent in color and also has some nice curves that compliment her quite well.
From the back you can see how they gave her hair really nice curves and curls. The curls I don’t understand (it’s a anime thing where their hair magically stays into their “unique” hairstyle lol) but I like how the hair that’s closer to her head sways. You can also see a gigantic white tied bow that complements her dress. Also, more ruffles lol.
Her guitar is shaped like a bat (because she’s a vampire) which is a neat shape and when I was googling for a bit of research on Chua, I saw that someone actually built a replica of it which was cool.
What I thought was weird was the one bat wing that stuck out of her dress lol. I think having another wing on the other side would have been better but that’s just my opinion. Another weird part about her is the pink spikes on both upper arms and underneath her neck lol. I know they’re supposed to be “fluff” accessories like in the game but they look like weapons to me xD.
She’s pretty wide and big but is supported well by a peg hidden behind the dress. No leaning yet which I’m really happy about which I assume is based on her weight being well centered.
Her base is nice as it’s a clear pink base with her name and a bat logo on it.
I did this photo shoot outdoors on my house roof actually lol. I wanted a place where I could get maximum sunlight exposure without shadows around. The background is the reflective inside box layer that came with my Black Rock Shooter figure box. I supported the reflective layer with another box by putting the layer inside the other box to provide structure.
I used photoshop to darken the actual color of the pictures which I thought gave Chua a more “standing out” look, especially with the hair.
Here’s the rest of the pics that I believe came out nice.
Overall, I love this figure and apparently I’m not the only one based on the comments I see for it lol. So if you’re lucky enough (or rich enough, see below) it’s a great buy and you will enjoy adding it to your collection.
