Before we hover over to looking at Perona’s box packaging, I just thought I’ll say that this Perona was an impulse-buy. I actually really wanted P.O.P’s Perona instead because I thought P.O.P’s Bonney was a really amazing figure and thus Perona would be too, but I didn’t have any budget left to get it after I got this Perona, and so I ended up never being able to get it. It’s not that I love chibi-arts’ Perona any less, but now, my heart breaks a little every time I look at the photos of P.O.P’s Perona… /takes the corner seat
Anyway, let’s get the show started! We start by looking at Perona’s box! Her box comes in a striking pink, dark purple (sorry but my poor camera can’t really pick up any of these colors well), and white! I thought that the halftone background image of Perona is really creative and it gives off a special vibe!
I would of have tried to translate all the captions on the box, but I can only understand bits and pieces of every part so I can’t provide any full translation, sorry about that.
Hovering on! Perona comes with a delicious looking purple background and lots of items such as the umbrella she always carries around! She even have some speech bubbles and two extra joints! Cool!
I didn’t pay attention to the background when I was taking it out of the box so I’m not quite sure which part is the top and which is the bottom, but I assume them to be purple striped cloths hanging down!
Perona also comes with a very graphical manual, listing down all the different parts available and also the right way to assemble her!
I especially like her umbrella and the negative ghost she carries as they are both very well-made and colored! The details inside her umbrella were all craved out and her negative ghost has a nice faint gloomy blue on its face! Cute!
The heart shaped belt is also a nice touch!
Sadly, despite her good quality of paint job, I was rather disappointed with Perona’s crown. Her crown should supposedly be one of the more pretty looking items in the set, but the paint job of it is really poor compared to the rest of the figure.
Her crown is apparently, worn by inserting it onto a protruding cylinder shaped stick on her head, which means you can’t pose Perona without her crown or it’ll look weird, aww.
The legs’ joints of Perona are also really obvious if you adjust her legs too much and so this isn’t really a plus point, but it’s not too bad since there’s always the method of adjusting the angle of where you shoot her from!
It’s time to move on to Perona with her accessories! I think that the speech bubbles included in the set is a really fun idea, though I only fully understand two out of four of them. “Negative Horo!!”
While taking these photos, I realised that Perona’s nose looked like an eagle’s beak from the front of her laughing face due to the shape of her upper lips, which was unintentional but now I cannot unsee it.
This is the end of Perona’s showcasing time! All in all, despite having little flaws here and there, this Perona was really adorable, friendly and fun to work with! Considering that she is my second favorite waifu, I’m really glad that I’ve gotten her!
But P.O.P DX’s Perona would have been better. I noticed that this Perona’s facial expression were really interesting because of her eyebrows, so it’s too bad that her fringe covered them. I also wished that more negative ghosts were included in the set! Well, thank you for your time. See you again!
Doesn’t Perona’s eyes just seem like two black holes luring you in?
I wouldn’t mind going in though, I love her.
