People are invited to apply to appear on the trading cards. They are not professional models.

The chips are not sold in stores. According to Irorio, the chips are available for purchase online for 324 yen (US$2.63) a bag which is much more expensive than the 120 yen (US$1) or so you usually pay for chips. Hey, beauty like this ain’t cheap.
