It is March 30th once again, which means it's time to celebrate Ayanami Rei's birthday! This year also marks the year of the Second Impact! Thankfully it's not really happening or otherwise I wouldn't be alive to type this and 14 year old boys and girls will be forced to pilot giant robots...
So in lieu of piloting Eva Unit 00, Rei gets to sleep in... On top of a dakimakura of herself.
But I have a surprise for her, so I should wake her up. "What do you want?" She asks, "can't I sleep some more on my birthday?"
Does she really have to scratch her butt right now? "I just woke up. You're the one who decided to take a photo of my scratching myself when I just woke up."
Well even though it's not new, I do have a present for her... Also, I'm experimenting with a new camera magnification filter. Didn't have to much time to play around with all the filters before I had to go to work, but it does wonders without having to buy an expensive lens.
Rei looks super cute in this one piece panda pajamas, don't you think?
Her present is a figma of herself! It's like a doll for a BJD... A ball-jointed doll of Ayanami Rei holding a figma of Ayanami Rei leaning on Ayanami Rei dakimakura... Reiception!
It was quite difficult trying to get Rei to hold herself up... The figma was more posable than big Rei herself!
And there's the parting shot of Rei with Rei! Until next year!
Oh wait, March 30th is also Kawasumi Ayako's birthday! She voices Saber in the Fate series. It is also Hayashibara Megumi's birthday who voiced Ayanami Rei. Rei's birthday was based on Megumi's, if you didn't know that already.
So I'm still experimenting with the macro filter. Unfortunately my lighting was not that great... Here's an angry Saber Lily getting really mad with me tying her up to the birdcage. I was trying to reenact the scene from Unlimited Blade Works.
"Get me out of here right now or I will call my onee-san!"
Uh-oh, she's really angry now... Or maybe about to cry? Either way I do not want to upset her oneesan...
Eep... She is crying! Not good! Let's end this photoshoot experiment now before the big sister come looking for me... Again.
