Bishoujo: Tali'Zorah vas Normandy (2.0)

Updated: May 5, 2019

A #Bishoujo I've had for a while now, Tali'Zorah vas Normandy is a favorite of mine from the Mass Effect trilogy. I thought it would be a good homage to revisit this lovely character's Bishoujo version. Keep in mind that I will be using older photos. And yes, the pictures are from an old blog that I used to update for all of my fandom. So without further adieu, let's get on with the 2.0 review of Tali's Bishoujo statue!

I mentioned on my Bishoujo Chun Li review that seeing black boxes on Bishoujo is a rare thing; at least for me it is. I'm not sure if it's just the characters I buy produces white boxes, but I have bought a good number of Bishoujos and black boxes are very rare. But touching on these older photos, I didn't have white backdrops back then like I do now so my old game room was my background so bear with ti. Also, I didn't do a full 360 pictures of the boxes for whatever reason (and at times didn't take good pictures of the boxes at all). But talking about the actual box and the art work, I have to say that the black box fits the Mass Effect characters since the void reminds me of space. Mass Effect characters are from space so, yeah. The whole purple fonts and black also goes really well with Tali since purple is her main color.

One of those rare and odd times that the finished product surpasses the official artwork. I mean, don't get me wrong, it's not a bad art at all but it just doesn't look as good as the statue itself. The artist for Bishoujo, Shunya Yamashita, is really good, but I think he had a harder time with Tali. He ascends to new heights when drawing sexy gals--obviously.

As far as "accessories", Tali gets two base designs. Pretty good deal considering she doesn't have an extravagant base like some other Bishoujos get.
