Sour is in the works

Post by Artful Owl on Wed Apr 01, 2015 8:05 pm

I tried not to order another, and wanted to stand strong hoping for some type of pet promotion. (I don't know why that is so appealing, but it is.) I even tried to hold myself over with the awesomely priced shoe and glasses packs, but no.  Maybe it was the promotion, or all of the horrible influences on the Facebook fan group (you know who you are). Sour was ordered on Monday (link to digital version in sig). She will be my first white Makie. I had planned to dye her, but the longer I let her digital version stew, the more I like her white. We will see what she says when she is here in the nylon. Very Happy
All that is left now is the agonizing wait...

whooo!

We're totally good influences, honest! makies are good for you! hahaha.

I can't help but feel white is a good colour for Sour. You know.. like Sour cream? hehehe.

What color were you going to dye her?

I was totally dragging my heels for a pet too. I have the rabbit from last May and I guess I think of him as their pet. That is in contrast to their other animals like their hedgehogs, which are their plushies. Since the rabbit is 3D printed, I tend to think of him as equivalent to the Makies. I've sort of resigned myself to buying another Makie when they offer a pet. My poor bank account.

Ha! Sour cream. Lol

Well, I've had my heart set on fun colored makies since I read that they could be dyed. Given that my fave colors are green and purple, I was going to do a green girl and a ligt purple boy...all elf eared.  Sour and the wig I found to suit her  just don't scream green skin.
I guess I'll have to create more makies, darn. :-) Maybe by then they will have a pet offer.

Also, I think you nailed why I want a makie specific pet. Somehow being 3D printed makes the pet "of the Makie" universe. Other materials and brands are their toys in my mind.

I've recently ordered eyes for a Makie that I don't even have yet, but it will be a blue Makie. Eep. I've already got the dye, too. It's the blue dye that I couldn't talk Garrak into bathing in.

I hope you get your green Makie some day!

I look at and drool over all the pictures of colorful makies, but they are almost all naked. I've yet to see pics of a fully face-uped and outfitted fantasy colored makie. I want to see some! Hahaa.

This weekend I'll attempt my fist face up on my dark (dark!) Malice. Of course I'll take and share pictures. I'd love to see more colored Makies. Other colors and tones than the basic four (five, if we count in the pistachio). Purple would be nice, or minty green. With Easter I always lean towards pastel tones. But a red (Hellboy-esque) or green (hulk-ish) would also be great! 

While talking tones, I can't help thinking about other modifications, like horns! I'd love to make a young Hellboy character, with horns and all... Ugh! More money please! More money for more Makies!

Yes! More money! I'd really like to do a suite of Star Wars near humans. All this talk of green makes me want to do a Mirialan. Bring on the dye!

I'm really excited to see how you do with Malice's makeup.

I wonder how you'd attach horns. Maybe on a headband like you would for human cosplay, you could hide the band in the hair. I made some bunny ears last night using that method. Stick some fabric with stiffening to a headband/hair band and bam, bunny headband lol.
I'd suggest a band that was either clear elastic or the same colour as the makie's wig (black for instance is invisible in their hairline unless you look really close)

Horns you could do like, little sculpy or milliput or something horns, thread a hole and thread some elastic through (dress maker elastic, that thin round stuff maybe?) my only concern would be they might flop and not sit in place too well but if you tie the elastic so they're flush against the wig, that would hold them into position.
I'll have a go next time I have my sculping stuff out hahah.

Of course you could just millput horns to their forehead for large mods but it all depends on how you want it to look.

I'm kinda leaning toward a green skinned alien boy (Love me some green boys) or a teal or purple skinned girl. Oh twileks... wouldn't that be fun? hahah. But they don't fit my sorta D&Dish universe i've created for my group. I think i'll need to stick with fantasy races, orcs, fae, tieflings hehehe.
I am a sucker for tieflings... hmmm.... *ponders*

Why not insert small magnets to the horns and some metal inside the head? Same with ears. No need for a headband, and they can either stick through a wig (small hole in the wig where the horn/ear would go) or just on top of it.
