Life-Sized Schoolgirl Character Bust

You are looking at a one-off 1/1 scale recreation of schoolgirl Manaka Takane from Nintendo DS dating sim Love Plus. Impressive, amazing and, yes, creepy.

This was spotted at the recent Treasure Festa in Japan at the Link Factory booth. Link Factory is a Japanese prop and special effect house, so these guys are pros.

This Manaka bust, with the tongue in cheek title "My Bride Project", was made as a gag of sorts. Previously, Link Factory projects include Japanese yokai, Beat Takeshi (and David Bowie's head) from Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, and a raccoon with enormous nards. Raccoons have big balls, apparently!

    Is it supposed to look dead?

      It's supposed to look authentic. DS characters aren't the liveliest of folk.

    Can you open its mouth any more? I erm... need to teach my kids how to brush their teeth.

    When I saw the title of this post, "Life-Sized Schoolgirl Character Bust", I had something else entirely in mind... I think I should just turn myself in now.

      I believe I was thinking the exact same thing. Difference is, I'm still at school, so it's normal for me.

    I don't know whether to laugh... or be really really freaked out. Seriously... WTF!

    is this really necessary, crazy shit goes on in japan...i dont think this is news worthy

    That mouth...

    that... is easily the most DISTURBING and DISCUSTING bust i have ever had the misfortune to see...

    That's juts so...wrong... so... ugly... sooooooo CREEPY!

    When anime characters are turned into 3D models, it's then I realise how inhuman and utterly creepy they are. Geez Japan.

    That looks creepy, like a test tube baby gone wrong, that would go on to spawn an army of human killing freaks.
