On Figurines

Three Words:

  • Royal Doulton figurines

They are mainly sculpted out of porcelain (fine china, not some cheap PVC) and beautifully hand-painted. Website here: http://www.doultonfigurines.com.au/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1

Didn’t think I’d pick up on such a genre eh? Thought I was just some closet anime otaku eh? NOT

I am a firm believer in going the full monty when it comes to the pursuit of an interest (whether it be secular, relational or spiritual). No half-arse efforts and dreams here, mate. Having said that, the craft work for these beauties are amazing and so is the cost too. The Royal Albert line of figurines portray the beautiful (Western) ladies of bygone eras. Their fashion, their pose and the elegance that it emanates are perhaps lost in contemporary trends unfortunately. Which perhaps makes it all the more desirable, especially for a traditionalist like me.

I would love to get one soon. Bad luck though, I have tendered a pre-order for a 1/4 (yes, 1/4) Takamachi Nanoha figurine. Its near 38cm tall. It looks huge but it’d be a lovely addition to my collection as well as being a first from the Nanoha anime series.

Cheerio.
