My brain is just about fried on both sides and I need suggestions for a diorama for the kit below. It is a 1/6 Mizuho from "Onegai Sensei!"

Had to edit the picture a bit as I got it from a certain site.

Thanks!

Floor of a tatam-matted room. You could have a table with some magazines on it and a drink and perhaps a tv on a stand in the corner.

Thats my thoughts anyways.

Since she'll end up being a brunette with a dark tan anyway... ;)

She's in a nightgown so I guess that limits things to night or early morning near sleeping areas. I would say laying on a futon mat in the center of a room with one of those hexagon florescent lights you always see in animes above her head hanging from for ceiling. You could actually put a LED in the lamp to make the room light up.

Thanks everyone,


I had the idea of her lying on a bed, but with all the ideas, the floor is a better place. I'm not tossing out the idea of placing her in a hammock though! :smile: In fact the beach scene gave me an idea of a Balinese type room with purples and avocado greens as base colors. A light from the ceiling would be great, I need to find a decent LED and hook up some wires and a resistor. Thanks again for getting the motor running!!

a hui hou,

Hmmm, since Mizuho is going to be on the floor, a ceiling lamp would be somewhat difficult because the best view would be looking from the top. Perhaps I can use a standing lamp that will fit to the style of the room. I'll be sure to post the results......whenever that may be.

I stay away from figures lying on their backs because they usually have to be tilted in some way to be displayed. I like the hammock idea but it would look a little strange with a nightgown instead of a bikini or other type of beachwear. I guess I will also vote for the futon with the light.

Have the figure lay on the floor, close to a desk with a notebook computer on it. Put a webcam on a tripod, and aim the webcam at the figure. Take a digital photo of the figure, make a tiny paper image of it, and place that image on the notebook computer's screen.

See where I'm going with this?

Sounds close to porn.

It does sound a bit naughty :shy:Plus I'm not really sure if her eating pocky makes sense with that idea. Of course people have worse fetishes I guess... man my though pattern is getting way off track here.

If only that was a bikini instead of a nightgown.. my top idea would then be her laying on one of those floating mats in the center of a pool. You could have had a chance to make tiles and water :).

You guys need to think "out of the box" a bit and stop forcing yourselves to see a nightgown.

A little sanding, a little putty, and it can be anything you want :nice:

Look, it's something the character is seen doing throughout the anime, so whay wouldn't it make sense to have her chomping on Pocky?

Look at the context of the characeter sculpt, and place the figure in a scene. She's lying down, wearing a thin nightgown, and eating. Showing off? Maybe. Enjoying a quiet moment to herself? Maybe.

Another idea would be to build a room with walls and a ceiling around this kit, place a window on one of the walls (divided light for dramatic effect) and place an LED lamp source some distance from the window for a moonlit effect. Forget the webcam. Crop the photographs as if you're inside the room with the character.

Good lighting can make or break a diorama.
