My new Malice

Post by Vaergo on Tue Mar 10, 2015 10:29 am

Well, I caved! I was gifted quite unexpectedly an handsome amount of cash and I have been thinking about customizing a new Makie for some time now. It is time to order a third! Yay!
Today I ordered Malice. Malice will be an experiment on my part. I want to dye her and make her look different.
While Vencka is annoyingly bossy and Fáelán is just fine with that, I believe Malice will bring balance to the gang. She will be the ultimate boss-lady. Drow in nature, so dominant in every way. Demanding, evil and I think very, very cool! The other two will have to watch every step they make, which will be great fun to watch.

Malice will be a dye experiment (I want her to turn grey) and she will be an experiment for me to make clothes for. All clothes I can find are modern, Malice needs medieval style outfits. Maybe even armor of some sort.

Yes, she'll be dark grey or blackish, depending on the dye I can find here. It seems harder to find, I remember those from a decade ago or something. But it will be great, dark grey or black with purple eyes. Dyeing her might give me courage to do a face up on Vencka.

She sounds cool, and evil. I look forward to seeing her new color. I would agree that after dying an entire Makie a face up shouldn't be intimidating.

That sounds great! I love that she's going to be a Drow. I've been hoping to pick up a white Makie for dying too (I want a Chiss), so I look forward to seeing what you end up with. Do you have any scraps for experimenting?

I have scraps left from my drilling experiment with Faelan. It's a really handy set to have if you desire to do some tinkering.

It's hard to wait these two weeks. But I've ordered a couple of crafting items which should arrive before Malice.

Too bad there is no way for Makies to just magically appear after they are ordered. They have a long trip waiting!

I'm so excited for little Malice to arrive! She's gonna be special.

Oh happy days! The sun is shining and I just got the message Malice went to print! Yay! From the email, it says that in 24 hours she'll be back in the lab to be put together. Baffled! That used to be a week! Did they speed up the printing process?

* edit * The printing supposed to be 24 hours, the getting packed up and ready to leave for home should take a week still. So, still on schedule. I thought the time was reduced by a week. Silly me.  Shocked

alas, the wording is a bit ambiguous isn't it? I've noticed mine tend to take more than a week, more like 10 days to get back to the lab. Lazy sods hah.
But they do go to print really quick. I think ordering beginning of the week speeds that because i'm pretty sure there's two print runs a week. I worked it out at one point but my brain is fuzzy tonight, but I recall theorising that there were two "batches" based on when each of mine was ordered and how long they waited to go to print. the "go to print" message seems to always come through on one of two days of the week.. so yeaaah.

But yay Malice! now the agonising wait!

Yup, a week wait so far. Halfway there. Have to wait for the nylon dye though. Once that is..... LET THE MODDING BEGIN! Whahaha!

Since Drow should be very dark if not black, I'll have to take it step by step. I don't want my Malice to be pure black, it would be hard to see (and enjoy) her features. So gunmetal grey is my choice. I've ordered some gunmetal iDye, which should be suitable for nylon. I guess, as long as it is a textile dye suitable for nylon, it should work. iDye Poly is what I read about and what I got.

There are some threads on dyeing, but I use this one as inspiration Cosma's dyeing experiment

Then, if the color is right and it didn't mess up a Makie, she'll get my first ever face up too. White eyebrows, purple makeup.

While I wait for Malice to arrive (when she wants to), I've build her a throne today. It needs paint and stuff, but tomorrow I'll post a preview. It looks awesome already! Made of wood and styrofoam. With paint on it, it should look like carved stone. Perfect for a Drow.

A quick sneak peek. The seat and backrest will remain wood, all else will be painted to look like rocks. The front piece of the seat will first have some wood carving. Easier said than done, but I want to make it look like smooth stone, with some spells carved in it. Notice the spider on top? Lady Lloth will be pleased! And if She is, so will Malice.

Amazing! It's really nice. Is Vencka jealous?

Is Vencka jealous? Good question! Yes, she is! She likes it a lot, but she knows it's not hers. She doesn't know what a Drow is and what their personality is like. As soon as Malice is here, I'm sure Vencka will be cured of her jealousy.

Well, it's day time. I took a couple of pictures. Before I made a mixture of basecoat paint, sand and woodglue and painted all over the styrofoam. It's drying now. After that, all the foam will be painted black. Then a lot of touchups with several layers of increasingly lighter coats of grey.

Well, I think it's nearly done now. I grow impatient, watching paint dry is no fun!

Thank you! I can't believe it turned out so well and so fast! Only a couple of days ago this was an idea I played with in my mind. Now it's here! Wish everything went that fast. lol
