Yuumiru is the daughter of a Dwarf king from “Steel Mountain” (orig. 「鋼鉄山」), a continent known for being a leader in the world for mining iron ore and producing weapons for the past 50 years. Recently, other mines around the world have started making a name for themselves by mass producing cheap iron parts and items, which is putting a strain on the business of the denizens on Steel Mountain. Yuumiru, who has been named the successor of the Dwarf king and the next in line (or already is?) to run the iron business, wants to prove to the world that the weapons her home makes is the best in the world, so she goes and enters the Queen’s Blade tournament with that big axe, big gauntlet, and the big spikes on those leggings of hers.
That’s pretty much the gist of her background. It’s a bit of a weird story, but hey I don’t play the game…I’m just in it waiting for the next hot girls to come out lol.
Megahouse Excellent Model CORE: Queen’s Blade Steel Princess Yuumil R-2
Sculptor: Kibayashi Norio
Scale: 1/8 (she stands roughly 16-17cm tall)
Release: Late June 2008
Character created by: Mibu Natsuki
She’s balanced enough to be able to stand her up without the base, so I took all these pictures without it. If you are curious though, it’s kind of a pearlescent, slightly hot pink colored elongated base with the Queen’s Blade logo embossed in it. I love the slightly Alice in wonderland/goth loli look of her outfit. I enjoy her backside quite a bit. (That sounded kinda weird…)
One thing I really like about her is her hair. I love the twirls she’s got hangin in the back of her head (minus the mold seams). I’m sure there’s a word for those coils of hair, but I don’t know what it is. Being a dwarf, I’m glad she’s not thick or have facial hair :O (my only perception of dwarves really coming from WoW and LOTR lol). She’s got some dangerous shoes, so if you’re a guy, you may not want to mention that stereotype right in her face. If you’re a girl…I guess it depends on how kinky you are…
The white clothing piece covering her dfc slips right off, but is secure enough when in place that I thought it was held in by magnets at first (I still can’t really tell since it’s such a perfect fit). She also detaches at the waist so you can remove her skirt, as you can see below, and also have access to removing her panties, which is clasped together on her left hip (you can kind of see it in the upskirt shot) and requires the detachment of her right leg for you to…slip them off yourself.
I refrained from taking any shots with her loli lady bits cuz I wanted to keep all the photos together, and photobucket would definitely not allow those pics to be uploaded lol. Her panties are on pretty loosely though, and looks a bit weird when looking at her from the front (looks like they’re slipping off a bit…too much), but I don’t display her with her skirt off anyway. The ribbons coming from the panties look nice twirling around her legs underneath the skirt.
At first when I got her, I was a bit underwhelmed (or maybe just tinges of buyer’s remorse lol), but now seeing her on display on my shelf in front of my door, she actually looks really cool everytime I enter my room and see her there. So all in all, I’m quite happy with her now. She won’t be alone for long, as my second Queen’s series character will be Queen’s Gate Alice, who also happens to be a loli (not really intentional to be collecting only loli Queen’s characters). She will probably have a spot next to Yuumil on my shelf, and will keep her company talking about boobless things together…
Some shooting notes:
Shot with: Canon Digital Rebel XT + Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8
I know the background in the pics aren’t pure white (which is what I was trying to go for -_-), and some of them are even different from each other due to type of metering used and lack of mad photo editing skills, but I was able to mess around with them enough to the point of being somewhat satisfied with the results. So far every photo session I’ve done has been in a different location with different lighting setups, and I still haven’t found that one setup that will get me some pro looking results like so many other good shooters out there (proof that a pretty good camera still sucks in the hands of a guy who doesn’t quite know what he’s doing still lol), so I’m still playing around with things. I don’t take pics and mess around with these things nearly as much as I should be, so it’s still taking me some time lol. This particular one was done with two 60w desklamps. This was also the first time I’ve ever tried playing around with the pop up flash on the camera, which I’ve found is very very useful lol.
