Bustier louises by alterBustier louises by alter

Hi there again!

Yet another review from the big louise fan :)

This time we will look at the two fairy bustier louises!
They are both 1/8 scale and approximatly 19 cm tall.
On a side note: white bustier is more rare and limited to 700 WW

If you think more pictures should be included or got some advice that can improve my blog(s) feel free to pm me. But please dont be too hard on me im a rookie with a new camera..
I do know it is not perfect yet, in the future i plan to edit blogs
(First picture will be replaced once the sun shines here again..)

--------------------------------------------------------------------
- paint and sculpt

So let us take a look at the two side by side !

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1454072936.jpeg

And one of my older pictures:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1333036586.jpeg


We can clearly see that the only difference so far is the color scheme right? Well let us look more into the details.

We start off with the white bustier.
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453821232.jpeg


Here you can see she kind of has a shine to it, whereas the black bustier is more matte looking

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453824112.jpeg

Do you also see how nicely shaded the white bustier one is?
Black bustier has it less visible but also got slight shading which gives that extra feel to it like the skirt is actually "moving"

And the lovely pink frills both versions have really stand out and are quite detailed but if you look closely it has some sloppy parts as well. (Mild panty shots so slightly nsfw) black transfer on the black bustier and some small blobs on the skirts of both, but not very noticeable.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453824104.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453819357.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453819520.jpeg


And a nice detail are the nicely tied ribbons on her bustier
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453825148.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453825144.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453822108.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453821234.jpeg

Not to mention her lovely blush which louise is known for with that touch of white and her eyes are very spot on!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453818938.jpeg

Now there is something that is less neat looking though.
The big seamline in front of her crown, which both versions have.
The crown itself looks pretty nice no visible flaws as far as I can tell.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453824106.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453821485.jpeg

Now going from her crown to her hair.
Her hair is nice and wavy with nice pink and some yellow shading but also some rough edged.. So quality control here is not very good which now improved when it comes to alter.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453824108.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453825142.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453821238.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453821236.jpeg


Now going down a little bit further showing some neat detail, her back bones! A very nice touch to finish it off to give a more realistic look to it. Both versions have it.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453822403.jpeg


Now going back to the front area some photos of her wand here, well not much to say about it, looks exactly like louises wand and is quite long. And her frills on her gloves are a nice touch.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453824112.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453822110.jpeg


Now check out her stockings

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453825964.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453825150.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453825966.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453822634.jpeg


Here both are pretty matte looking and a nice detail would be the wrinkles which you get if you move.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1454073259.jpeg


Now here is sadly yet another flaw it is having.. Seamlines.
Both at the sides, but perhaps it is done on purpose to represent real stockings?

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1454072940.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1454072938.jpeg

Npw onto the last parts. Panties. Yes her well known panties which saito frequently washes are well represented here and every detail is there, take a look. (Nsfw)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1454073265.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1454072944.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1454072942.jpeg

Now the last part are their shoes. It shows some seamlines but it can be barely seen except for the last photo, i just started to notice it now i am writing a blog.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453825968.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453825966.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453822634.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453821230.jpeg


So id say I give knowing all the flaws now an 8 for the sculpt.
There are subtle flaws but no overly bad ones besides the big seamline on her head which cost her some points.
And a 9 for the paint as the colors itself are spot on but there are some smudges.

-pose

Now let us take a look at the pose.
Since I already included several angles and dont want to clutter the blig, i take this one picture.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1333036697.jpeg


A pretty simple pose yet very elegant and typically louise how we know her. It shows off her high pride as a noble.
I got to admit this is one of my favorite figures for that fact that it represents louise so well. (In my opinion)

10/10

-base

Well just a plain disk in very bright yellow,
To be blunt and honest I dont get why they went with it. Has nothing to do with louise at all and stands out a lot in a bad way as it makes no sense with the rest of the figure.
So sadly the base wont get a high mark, it does its job but it isnt appealing at all

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453819742.jpeg


5/10

-box

Well practically the same box so I took a pic of the white bustier box to show the only mere difference, which is a sticker saying white bustier ver
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453908910.jpeg


Here is the box from all sides

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453908908.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453908684.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453908682.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1453908680.jpeg

Well pretty neat looking nice art showing off the bustier louise and the see through window so you can peek at her.
I do think they should have changed at least something more to the white bustier box, like showing the white bustier and not the black ver at the side

8/10

-overall enjoyment
10/10 well ok after this review I kind of saw a lot of flaws i did not even notice myself at first but white bustier is still my favorite louise for the reasons I already mentioned. It comes most close to how she is.. Tsun yet subtle blush as she actually does want you to look at her. The fact that she actually wore the outfit is also a big plus cause a lot of louise figures are based of fanart or such :)

- personal preference
White bustier. Why you ask? When she has more flaws compared to her black ver. First of all, she has a lot of story to her in my case. 2nd would be her being very limited which somehow makes me appreciate her even more since i paid less than what she goes for now
3rd and most important. Classyness.. Due to that shiny effect it just looks more like it was made for louise, the white makes the pink look more soft :) but I like the black one a lot too and the flaws are less visible.

Aftersale prices:
20-25k white bustier and 8-10k for black bustier

Hope you enjoyed the review and stay tuned as more is to come! :)

Planned:
Wave swimsuit louises

Chloe-tsundere The louise otaku
dymitr (2 years ago) #6323346By comparing the map of Halkeginia (nl.wikipedia.or...) with Europe from acient times.
Notice the following:
- Gallia was a name for a region controlled by the French: nl.wikipedia.or...
- Albion was a name for the United Kingdom of England: link: nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albion_(Groot-Brittanni%C3%AB)
- Germania was a name for the region controlled by Germany: nl.wikipedia.or...
- Romalia was a name for the region controlled by Romenia, but here it refers to Italy;
The similarities are apparent; A theory which is supported by the shape of Romania, the fact that a church-structure rules the country (just like the vatican), and that it is probably named after Rome, who were called Romans. It is quite easy to envision that the original creator decided that the country of Romans, would be called Romalia.
Now if we take all this in account and compare Halkeginia with Europe:
- Halkeginia: nl.wikipedia.or...
- Europe: upload.wikimedi...
We see that Tristania, compares to a region consisting of the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxemburgh.
An area that in ancient times all belonged to the United Kingdom of the Netherlands (Verenigd Koninkrijk der Nederlanden): nl.wikipedia.or...
An area that broke off from Spanish rule and was ruled under the Orange-Nassau house, until a revolutions occurs in Belgium and it became independent. Where afterward another revolutions occurred and made Luxemburgh independent. You can still see that it was once a whole area ruled by the Netherlands as both the NL and BE have provinces by the name of Limburgh and Belgium still has a province named by the name of Luxembourgh, which is not connected to the country of Luxembourgh.
So, the United Kingdom of NL consisted out of land, that fall apart in 3 (Latin: Tri) parts.
I think the Original Creator used this fact to call the country of Henrietta; Tristania.
To this day I still hope that one day Flanders (Dutch speaking part of Belgium) will rejoin the Netherlands so we can make Great-Netherlands. Belgia can keep the france (Wallonia) speaking parts.


Oh well learned something new I guess even big fans can still learn xD thanks I enjoyed reading through this

dymitr (2 years ago) #6301711This article made me look up some details of this show again.
I had completely forgotten that Tristania, the country where all takes place, is a fictional version of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands <3. That is awesome by itself, more anime should take place in my mother country =P

Chloe-tsundere (2 years ago) #6274658Indeed her stockings are very well done especially on the white one the shading is very visible :) but the seam is less noticeable on black.
Yes she really shines, hard to capture on photos in real it is even better :)
I will keep an eye out for you :)
My pleasure, im glad you enjoyed it and that it helped you decide :)
Planning to do more louises soon ;) when the light is better.. Need more natural light


For sure. I love those kinds of socks anyway, so I'm a big fan just because they're there. It doesn't hurt that the girl wearing them is adorable too :) Thanks! It'll be a great day if I ever see her arrive at my door :) I will be looking forward to you next reviews! Thank you again!

I like the review comparison and great quality pictures! I think I'm leaning towards liking the white one more, but I may be biased since I prefer pale and lighter colors much more lol

Chloe-tsundere The louise otaku
dymitr (2 years ago) #6278127Nice that you started reviewing. Looks like your camera makes excellent pictures.
Personally think that the base deserves at least a 6 because it performs the job well of keeping her up. Sure, they could've made it more pretty or better fitting, but it does it job well and in the end of the day that is the most important thing.


I dont agree it is a little wobbly and it is ugly so a 5 is decent since it does its job but far from pretty the design and they couldve went with a different shape or so, alter usually does a way better job when it comes to bases so taking that into account i thought a 5 was ok but well opinions may differ a 5 to me isnt awfully bad ;) but far from good.

Thanks im glad you like the pictures :)
