Alter 1/7 Scale Toujou Nozomi Love Live School Idol Festival

♬ ♪ ♫ Love Live School Idol Festival 1/7 scale Toujou Nozomi by Alter ♬ ♪ ♫
______________________________________________________________________

Hi everyone! Today I'll be taking a look at my most recent figure, the lovely and mysterious lil lady from the game Love Live! School Idol Festival, Toujou Nozomi by Alter!

Nozomi is my third Love Live figure from Alter, after Nico Nico Nii~ (and Rin) and she looks exactly like I envisioned and I can't wait until Eli comes out!

Took literally forever to make this review because photobucket is atrociously slow and threatened to crash my browsers but here it is! I hope you'll enjoy! Please let me know if any of the image links are broken, I'd hate for nothing but "Image not found" to be all over my review.

♬ ♪ ♫ Packaging and box ♬ ♪ ♫

Here is Nozomi's box. It's pretty much the same style for all the other boxes for the figures in this series, except its her signature colour, purple. I'll always love the musical notes adorning the box and her signature is friggin adorable.

Fortunately, my Nozomi didn't have the ribbons on her wrist broken but those who do will find that a little glue should fix it, since they were glued on in the first place.

Pretty standard base. It's got a pearlescent quality to it and has her name printed neatly in purple. I like the diamond patterns in silver and purple, its kinda stylish.

There are two pegs, one metal and one plastic. She is easier to detach from her base than Nico. It's a pretty tight fit.

Pls ignore the keychains in the background, there's an ugly hole in my wall that and I'm hiding it with the corkboard

Nozomi's got a pretty dynamic pose, though I dunno if it's possible to copy her pose. Gurl's got some impressive hips. I like how the motion of the ribbons make sense and how they kinda circle around her. And the the movement of her braids follow her as well. The foot in the air is nothing new to these Love Live figures, they all have that by now.

Nozomi's puurrtty face! I'm wasn't sure how I felt about the winking but seeing it in person, it's pretty well done. Her maturity shines through her expression!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347376.jpeg

The ribbon in her hair is insanely detailed. I wonder how it manages to stay on her fringe so well especially when she dances.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347400.jpeg

Her corset! Again, a very well detailed pattern near the gold trim and a more subtler floral pattern all over.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347297.jpeg

Her assets (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧. I love how she's not just skinny, like it's known that she has the biggest bust but like, she's got some meat on her bones.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347322.jpeg

Her top is actually somewhat translucent? It's possible to see the outline of her side and it casts a purple tinge on her skin if you peak under!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347299.jpeg

The back! I absolutely love how they sculpted her shoulder blades. You can also see how well they did her hair.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347324.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347406.jpeg

Her plaits are shaded and I love how there's strands coming undone, really adds to the motion of the figure. Stiff, perfectly plaited hair are too boring. #Hairgoals

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347295.jpeg

Her left hand and the card she's holding. Each Non-tan comes with two cardsxhttp://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347443.jpeg, one I presume is a spare. I tried to fit it in her right hand but it kinda fell out. They're made of paper resembling thin card stock. Careful not to get them wet!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347320.jpeg

The right hand in question.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347447.jpeg

The ribbons around her wrists sport the same pattern as her top, tied into a bow with black flower on top. Wrist cuffs too are as immaculately painted/decaled on as her top and hair ribbon.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347293.jpeg

Her belt thingies might be my favourite part of the outfit besides the hair. I love the golden hula hoop like affair thing going on and the rainbow flower painted onto her skirt makes her black skirt. It's like, on the skirt perfectly despite the heavy folds.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347404.jpeg

Nozomi's bum. Sorry not sorry. Her skirt is also somewhat translucent, and it doesn't feel so bold or heavy looking. Her panties are the same colour as her tights but like... shimmery... If anyone was wondering.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347398.jpeg

Her very nice and shapely legs. I also like how her kneecaps were sculpted and shaded lol.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347326.jpeg

Her garter belts (≧◡≦) ♡. The frills here also have been shaded and the leg cuff thingo without question is also perfectly detailed. I enjoy how this pattern is everywhere but like, in small-ish doses so it doesn't overwhelm.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347445.jpeg

Her stockings look so realistic and they've added some subtle silver sparklies that look like they're splattered on!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473347378.jpeg

Her boots! They give off an elegant vibe. Some might say they're a little plain but anymore fancy patterns might be a bit too overwhelming. They're the glossiest thing in Nozomi's attire and really accents the gold. There's some lighter and darker black shading which kinda helps with reflecting the light.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/LovelyIdiot1473240197.jpeg

Such a swish figure.

♬ ♪ ♫ Conclusion ♬ ♪ ♫

Nozomi's a figure full of small beautiful details! Once I got up to this point, I ended up realising that I've taken wayyyy more close up shots than full figure shots haha oops.

From afar, she's not as impressive as other girls may be but upon a closer look, I began to notice how intricate and amazing details, and I feel like this made me appreciate her so much more.

Would I recommend her? Hella yeah I would, she's gorgeous! She may very well end up charming her way into my top 5 figures this year.

LovelyIdiot (1 year ago) #14590380Thank you! Yes I quite like Nozomi's character too!

Her "character", riiight. Nah, I'm only joking, she's well developed in more than way.

One thing I don't like about the figure, is that she's not smiling, it would have made her look so much better.

Lucidream (1 year ago) #14582569I would love to look at her images but it says "photo not found" :(
I really wanted to get this Nozomi though. I had to drop her so that I could afford Remilia...


Thanks for alerting me, and I'm sorry about that, Photobucket just refuses to cooperate today. OTL Anyway I reuploaded to MFC and fixed the links, they are working for me now so hoping it'll work for you too.

That's a shame, but I do hope you'll be able to pick up up at some point, she's really really nice!

autumnlucks (1 year ago) #14575300Nice review! I still have to open mines. She's my favorite idol out of all the girls :). Def love the fact that they show a little thickness to her :)

Thank you! I think you'll find her a very nice figure too! Lucky for you! I'm still waiting on Eli but I really like Nozomi too. Yeah, and I also noticed this after I wrote this but she's got a little tummy fat and I LOVE IT.
