Cin has very slowly been coming together. I’m waiting for (hopefully better) eyes for him and wanted to take photos afterwards, but the postal service is being ridiculous and holding them hostage now that they finally arrived to the country after over two weeks on the way from across the ocean. >:/ I’ve also re-painted his face, a few times -sort of. I mentioned in the review that the headback broke. Well, I contacted Soom about that to complain about the design flaw pretty much (hoping that they’d improve on it) and they sent me a new head as an apology. I painted that one with my fairly crappy bottle of army painter to counter the tone difference MSC does on tan resin. But it ended up pretty shiny AND the head is quite a bit yellower in tone than his body or the original head. Which was annoying. And then it took me a while to re-paint his original head using a mix of the shiny army painter and MSC to get something decent. Unfortunately I didn’t do as good a job with the face up itself as on the extra head but well, I’ll swap them around a bit and re-paint them until I’m happy. Once/if that happens, I might wanna try and do something completely different with the extra head, don’t know yet.
He’s also slowly been building his wardrobe. In these photos he’s wearing the second version of straight pants and the prototype dress shirt (oh god, the fabric is so horrible, and absorbs like every since dust spec and cat hair in a 5 mile radius). And I’ll sew more for him when I feel like it. I have trouble giving him the kind of loose home-clothes he would wear cause he’s too good-looking for them. I have many other things I want to sew as well, but have a really hard time getting started and finishing projects these days. I’m not feeling very well, haven’t all year, so things take a long time.
Anyway, took some very simple backyard shots of him today until I got sick of his stupid torso flailing all over the place and refusing to pose.
