Welcome to the Solaris Blog! ヾ( ʚ̴̶̷ .̫ ʚ̴̶̷ )ﾉ”
Ask, and you shall receive. Not long ago, GSC blessed us with the rose of Rozen’s collection, Shinku. (Who, by the way, is coming at the end of November; have you pledged yourself to her yet?)
However, we know that goody two-shoes English ladies are not for everyone. Some of us look up into the dark sky and hope that an imperfect, fallen angel will appear instead. We prayed and the figure gods answered: Rozen’s first maiden Suigintou descends from the N-field. ⁽⁽ଘ(｡-‿-｡)ଓ⁾
Figure maker Flare surpasses the skill of Rozen and does what he could not do: give us a complete masterpiece. Now the strongest and fiercest of all dolls steps up to the Alice Game, and she plays to win. ( ಠ ⌣ ಠ )
While Shinku sits on the throne of her maker’s heart, basking in the light of his love…Suigintou looms like a leaden cloud over the battle. Her resolve alone should make her worthy of becoming Alice!
Her blood-red eyes glimmer like rubies full of spite. They are the only color of the model; everything else is colored by the stark contrast between raven-black and pure white, evoking the ominous beauty of a pale full moon at midnight. The matte black of her wings is a great choice. Not only does it add texture to the feathers, it also separates them from the rest of the model, giving them life of their own...
...which is also a very accurate representation of Suigintou’s power. Her wings are the manifestation of the emptiness she carries within — a hungering black hole, from whence not even light can escape.
The base shows the dizzying descent into the void with a checkerboard pattern. This is a worthy representation of her right as the first of Rozen’s dolls. The brass filigree twists itself to form vines, roses, and thorns. Feathers surround the inverted cross, symbolizing the fall of the doll who was meant to be perfect, but was cursed to be forever incomplete. ଘ(っ◞‸◟c)
This tragic character was the inspiration of many a budding gothic lolita back then. §ԾᴗԾ§
Let’s be honest: out of all of Rozen’s dolls, Suigintou’s outfit is the most stylish! She doesn’t need abundant lace and frills softening the edges; she is the most powerful and her style must reflect that as well.
Note the joint detailing on her knees. It is so well done that I thought she was a figma for a brief second...which unfortunately doesn’t exist...yet (figure gods, once again I beg of you 人 ´∀｀) ). Right now, the only poseable figure is her Nendoroid, which we have in stock! Follow the trail of black feathers and you will find her, looking menacingly cute in our store.
Rozen’s first opus is set to arrive in August 2022. Right now we have an Early Bird deal going on: if you pre-order soon, you can save up to 8%! But it won’t last for much longer, because the Alice Game can’t stop...and Suigintou is its strongest contender. Even without a contract she fights, moved only by the pure, twisted love in her hollow heart! (ᇴ‿ฺᇴ)
We hope you enjoyed this one!
Until next time! ヾ(＾∇＾)
