This week has been pretty crazy! Though not because of customs :) Yesterday they (FINALLY!!) announced that Majora’s Mask is coming to the 3DS, can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting to hear that!<3
Other fun stuff: Probably going to London in April again to watch the world’s best supergroup perform! We’ll see if I get tickets before they are sold out though!
Other other fun stuff: Next year will be crazyamazing! (Yes that’s a real word.) Coming up in 2015: Game of Thrones season 5, new season of Workaholics, new season of Face Off (looooove that show, also have something special in mind to show you just how much I love it!), Majora’s Mask on 3DS, trip to London, numerous trips to Berlin, tons of customs (I’m optimistic!), OUR WEDDING (let’s not forget that one!), our honeymoon (which will be amazing no doubt!) and all sorts of other great stuff. 2015, I love you already!<3
New customs this week:
#208, Roy Koopa! Second one in my Koopalings project :) I made Ludwig first because I always play with him in Mario Kart 8 and Roy after him because my friend/rival Rob always chooses him (might have to send Roy to him as a Christmas pressie because why not) ^_^ They look so cute together! I can’t wait to get all of them done so I can see them together!
These two will also be battling to the death in Super Smash Bros (if they indeed are playable characters).
Another MK 8 character (though I would never use him, he’s not great to drive with), custom #209 Yoshi! You already saw a WIP photo of him next to Freckles, I made the two of them together when I swapped the heads of a G2 Kangaroo and an Iguana :)
He’s a bit funny looking. But very cute!<3
Yoshi is currently for sale in my Ebay shop! ( www.ebay.com/usr/piaslittlecustoms )
Another little original character, custom #210, the shy little Faun Prince Moss<3 I really don’t know if I want to sell him, he just has the cutest little face! As with my Faun Princess, he looks completely different from the sketch I made!
The sketch for my Faun Princess and Prince:
My handwriting is beautiful.
How they turned out:
Little Moss<3 (Yes he is named after my favorite character in the IT-crowd!)
Little Faun Princess (who has been sold to a loving home!)<3
This just goes to show that you should trust your guts when designing creatures rather than stick to your sketch that you might not like anymore :)
Anyways, A month or so ago I had an anime character voting on my Instagram page so I could decide which two anime creatures I would make customs of.
1 – Amaterasu , 2 – Charmmy Kitty, 3 – Haku, 4 – Kero, 5 – Kyubey, 6 – Happy, 7 – Kuromi, 8 – Kirara, 9 – Teto
The winner of the voting was Charmmy Kitty, so I decided to make her first:
Super kawaii! She is my custom #211
She’s for sale in my Ebay shop too!
On Saturday I finished another original character, custom #212, a Wood Nymph / Princess of the Forest inspired deer :)
She took forever to make but I think she turned out quite lovely! She’s also up for grabs in my Ebay shop (www.ebay.com/usr/piaslittlecustoms).
On Monday I finished an adorable commission. This custom is based on the commissioner’s cat who had passed away, so it was an absolute honor to get to make a custom of her. The entire thing reminded me of Suzu, which brings back a lot of heartache, but I’m very happy I got to do this custom :’)
Custom #213, Little Maisy <3
My custom of Suzu who unexpectedly passed away in May. I still miss her so much, she was such a sweetheart<3
I know how much losing a pet hurts, so I hope this custom will remind the owner of what a lovely cat Maisy was. I know my custom of Suzu helps me remember her every day :)
Anyways, getting all teary eyed here but have to keep writing…! A few more customs were made this week!
Custom #214, Larry Koopa:
So cute!Looking adorable with his brothers (yes, they’re all siblings and Bowser’s children. Very weird.)!
I really love how Larry’s hair turned out! It just goes to show that Green Stuff is the best thing ever to sculpt with! It defies gravity!
And last but not least, another (crazy complicated but amazing) commission:
Custom #215, a little Unicorn Princess!
I added the horn, the flowers and extra hair to her :) The commissioner loved her so it was definitely worth every second I spent on it ^_^
A few little things I still want to share before I go! People keep asking me how I make the miniatures in the photos I take with my customs. I don’t make them, they have all been bought from various sellers! I’ll share my favorites with you:
Adorable tea set by Etsy seller NattyCollection (www.etsy.com/shop/NattyCollection)
Sneasel and Purrloin really love this sushi set by Etsy seller NattyCollection (www.etsy.com/shop/NattyCollection)
Flowers and champagne by Ebay seller li.felice (www.ebay.com/usr/li.felice)
Shiny Zorua and Shiny Umbreon are looking cozy with Etsy seller NattyCollection’s (www.etsy.com/shop/NattyCollection) adorable Starbucks cups and Etsy seller SophieToffeeCo’s delicious-looking cupcake (www.etsy.com/shop/SophieToffeeCo)
Jolteon and Pikachu enjoying Etsy seller JessieRaye’s (www.etsy.com/shop/jessieraye) amazing lemonade.
Cotton Candy looking sweet as sugar with Ebay seller fan21_hk’s (www.ebay.com/usr/fan21_hk) miniature macaroons.
Halloween might already have come and gone but these miniatures look super cute nonetheless! Pumpkins and jar of candy corn by Etsy seller JessieRaye (www.etsy.com/shop/jessieraye) , other jar of candy bought from Ebay seller fan21_hk (www.ebay.com/usr/fan21_hk).
So there you go! I just love miniatures, they really inspire me to take photos of my LPS customs :)
Another thing I want to address are some of my sculpted parts that have been done using tiny little molds (without them it would have taken forever to get these customs done!):
My 100th custom, Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The tiny butterflies were made from a mold that I got from the lovely Etsy seller WhysperFairy (www.etsy.com/shop/WhysperFairy).
Custom #176, Sakura Earth Dragon featuring Sakura flowers made from a mold by Etsy seller MiniatureSweet (www.etsy.com/shop/MiniatureSweet).
I actually ordered a bunch of new molds today… Can’t wait to get them! I got super inspired just browsing them on Etsy! ^_^
So, just when I thought that I might run out of ideas after 200 customs, I got inspired and created a whole bunch of new ideas!
Here are some sneak peeks for upcoming customs:
Another OC! Someone might be commissioning me to make this, but in any case I’m making one of them for myself because I totally fell in love with this character ^_^
What will these become?
“Karl” and “Lilith” should hopefully be done this week :3 I’m especially excited to make Lilith!
And another Zookeeper character that no one will recognize xD He’s my favorite avatar though so I have to make a custom of him! …
…And because it’s a matter of pride for me what my Zookeeper rank is and the previous picture didn’t do it any justice, here is one of the highest ranks I’ve reached. Yes I’m very proud of myself, thank you very much.
Alright then! Hope you all have a lovely week and weekend, see you again next Wednesday or Thursday!<3
