Asuka turned an innocent young lad into an otaku.
Once upon a time, a young lad was having his holiday in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where he saw the most beautiful thing on display in Times Square. She was Kotokubiya’s 1/7 scale Gothic Lolita Asuka. It was love at first love but regrettably he didn’t get her, the price was too hefty for the chap.
Back home in Singapore one day, the lad chanced upon a shop selling the same figure. He bought it without hesitation. It was fate.
The year was actually 2005, back then the lad wasn’t an otaku, Asuka somehow ignited his passion for figure collecting. The rest was history.
The figure comes with a ruined staircase as her base but it was omitted in this shoot as the lad felt that she looks better sitting on the rocky steps.
James also did a wonderful photo shoot of the same Asuka figure which you may want to check it out by clicking here. If anyone here has a photo shoot of her as well please let me know. I’ll link you up.
Kotobukiya is going to release Gothic Lolita Rei in October which can be combined with Asuka. Wonder what took them so long to come up with a follow up? Somehow this Rei doesn’t really appeal to me so I won’t be getting her.
Gothic Lolita Asuka is going to be re-release in Nov so those interested may want to take note.
