Ahhh Honoka/Emi shrine update!!
(I was meant to do this sooner but uh I kept forgetting h)
Since Christmas I got Emi’s photobooks and now my collection is complete of Emi books and I got 2 new Honoka straps!!
Next month the collection will grow even more as I’m getting vol 2 of Ho Ho Emi Happy Music and Emi’s new single Sing Ring (both release on March 25th,,, y’all better go stan). Only problem is that I’m now running out of space to put stuff so I’m deffo going to have to rearrange all my shelves which is gonna be such a pain :,)
I hope everyone is doing well and I can’t wait to add more to my shrine!!
I went ABSOLUTELY HAM at Katsucon this weekend and I wanted to share my merch haul! (Minus the Kiki pin haha) I ended up buying only Hanayo stuff because I’m garbage 🥺💚🍙 only for the best (why is it sideways on desktop I APOLOGIZE)
My name is Jerome, or Gale for my online nickname. I just found out about Idol Story from Twitter.
I've been into Love Live since 2016 when I started playing LLSIF out of curiosity from friends and because I used to play a lot of rhythm games back then. And I've been hooked up in the series since then. I currently play LLSIFAS with Dia as my main idol.
It's a bit difficult for me to choose my best girl (since they all are XD), but my top four per group would be:
Kotori, Umi, Maki, and Eli from μ's
Dia, Kanan, Riko, and You from Aqours
Setsuna, Karin, Kanata and Rina-chan from PDP/ NijiGaku.
I'm a figure collector/photographer and I run Gale XV Photography from FB, Instagram, and Twitter.
I focus mostly on figure collecting and figure photography, where I create sets and dioramas for my figures (both indoor and outdoor). It's been my hobby since 2015 and I'm enjoying it aside drawing and crafting.
Aside Love Live, I'm also into Fate or TypeMoon series (big fan since 2006), BanDori, and Girls Frontline. Most of my figures are from Fate and Love Live, but I collect figures from other series too.
One of the things on my bucket list would be to be able to meet the LL seiyuus in person, especially Aqours seiyuus.
here's a photo of some of my ruby merch collection :) ruby fills me with joy and i love her so much!! i'm currently between having too much merch for my smaller youruby ita bag and having not enough for the bigger bag i bought so this is just a little in between bag hehe
I know I‘m super late posting something on here for her but here’s my birthday present for my best Aqours girl Matsuura Kanan!! 🐬💚
I love her so much! uwu
A few months ago I planned on doing something special for her birthday but I didn‘t managed to do it in time so hopefully I‘m gonna do it next year. For this year I created a card edit for her and a collage with other pics of my Kanan merchandise.
Kanan blessed me this year with her limited birthday UR two times in the same pull on my japanese sif account which made me very happy and was absolutely crazy. 😜😝🤪
Here's the photo I took for Petite Idol Studio featuring my favourite Nozomi figure! ❄️
This garage kit was my absolute dream item of Nozomi's so she means a great ton to me! I never thought I'd ever get her and it'd only be a distant dream, so taking this photo and spending time with her now that I do own her made for a great bonding experience~
I had hoped she would fit the winter theme most because of her outfit! I can't take credit for painting this garage kit since I did not, though I did my best to showcase the amazing job the first owner of her did. Now that she's at her new forever home, I wanted to take this as an opportunity to show her to the world for the first time. 💜
This was taken on a snowy day in my backyard! In the background, you may see the snow-covered area where a small stream flows with a bridge to walk over it. The snowy-forest scenery made it a perfect day to take a photo of Nozomi in her adorable winter boots, so I had to go for it! The photo makes a lot of Nozomi's features pop and she looks so tall overall! Nozomi really seems as if she is casually taking a stroll and enjoying her day. I adore how it turned out in the end. ☃️
I hope everyone can find inspiration to take at least one photo of their merchandise in nature sometime (being careful and safe, of course)! It was a very new experience for me and I'm glad Petite Idol Studio exists for this very reason. Trying something new with a figure that means a lot to me brought me much closer to Nozomi and I have a bigger appreciation for toy photographers and nature alike. 💜
I hope to see a couple of more photos before the event ends! Happy Photography! 📸
