Touken Ranbu Mini ShadowboxTouken Ranbu Mini ShadowboxMisc

Hi all! I wanted to share with you my latest craft project! c: (sorry for the bad cell phone pictures haha)

I saw this post on tumblr a while back, and recognized the box they used as a Daiso product since I used to work there. I got inspired to make one of my own!

But first... I had to buy materials!

I went to the Kinokuniya near me and decided to take the plunge and buy a Touken Ranbu nendo petit from a blind box. I considered the boxes carefully, and in the end went with my gut and picked the one that felt best. I was lucky to get one I wanted!!

I would have done this project regardless of the one I got, but I'm glad I got one whose design I like.

The box I used was the same daiso magnet box; they'd been out of stock for weeks, but when I showed up yesterday there was one left!

I don't have a nice printer to print out a picture of the game background, so I decided to use some ukiyo-e paper I had lying around (also from daiso... are you sensing a theme)

Hokusai's "Red Mount Fuji, at Dawn" went best with Yoshiyuki's color scheme. In hindsight I don't know which sheet I would have used if I'd gotten a different nendo ahaha ;u;

The original post had a flat plastic shelf inside the box, but imo that put the nendoroid too high up in the final product. Instead I just stuck a magnet from a broken Daiso clip onto the bottom of his stand to anchor him.

The magnet was even strong enough to hold him.... kinda. Don't try this at home haha!

I traced the bottom of the container on the back of the origami sheet, and then carefully cut it out. It fit the inside of the tin perfectly, with a little wiggle room. I used double-sided tape to attach it to the tin (and even had to run back to--you guessed it--Daiso to buy the tape when I realized I didn't have any).

Presenting.... the finished product!!!!
Ta-da!!

I'm really, really happy with the finished product!!! the colors look fantastic, and the shadowbox effect is so cute. Plus the magnetic back means I can stick it on my prettyboy whiteboard.

When I make these in the future I might try adding decorative items too, like tiny fake flowers or cute erasers. I might also try different daiso boxes, since the magnet/tin ones tend to sell out quickly. Not only was this easy to make, it cost me less than $20 overall, and the figure constituted more than half the production cost.

Anyway, thanks for reading!! This was a fun little project and I'm already hyped to start making more, maybe with my other nendo petits ;u; kancolle ones would be fun to make too i bet; im not into kancolle but i'm already dreaming of a kongou shadowbox....

lavalunar4年前#13612907Aaaaaa so pretty! So cute!! Having trophy-like figure displays is all well and good, but I love seeing people display their figures in artsy-crafty ways most of all! This one really takes the cake. :) Congrats on such a nifty project.

Wah thank you!! ;u; I'm so glad you like it!! If i make more of these I'll definitely post more pictures c:

moonlight1194年前#13606265Ohh I went back to her previous posts and found this sane10love.tumb... Apparently op simply cut those risers from a hard case of some sort, also from Daiso.

Ohhh, that makes sense.

Magusfigures4年前#13589932That one I don't know, unfortunately. They didn't post any pictures of what they used for those, so I'm not sure what they are. Now that I look at them, it's possible they're plastic microscope slides.... Ohh I went back to her previous posts and found this sane10love.tumb...

moonlight1194年前#13579989This is a pretty nice idea! Would you have an idea where to get those plastic "risers" the tumblr op used?

Magusfigures4年前#13567510I think either wood or metal would accent different nendoroids better. For example, the touken ranbu nendoroids would probably look really nice with wood, and maybe with the inside decorated to look like traditional japanese walls/doors. a metal frame might go well with, say, the kancolle nendoroids to accent their ship parts.

Ahh, that's a great point you have there. Thank you. ^^

lightningmaid4年前#13567389Awesome post! I really wanted to put some Nendoroids on the wall, but not just on a shelf. I really liked the shadowbox you posted in the comments as well. Now the question is, do I like the wood more or the metal one more..
