Mion & Shion Conversion

So an update! Got a fair bit done in the last week or so... Though it may not look like a whole lot! Most of what I have done is on Shion, she has gotten herself a skirt and some shoes. I have put her in her short skirt and flats like she wears in the anime...

Rough go of her skirt...
after some number of hours of sanding and reputtying, She was ready for her first coat of primer ^_^ Lucky for me there are only a couple of areas I will need to go back and repair!
The primer is grey Krylon for anyone who's interested. Bought at Wal-mart for around $4 a can

Oh, I didn't take a lot of pictures while I was making Shion's shoes but, in order to have a slimmer looking shoe I had to chop off some of her toes!!

 I also started on her top, which is a sleeveless, turtle-neck type shirt. Looks kinda haggarded right now but this is what I got so far!

 Mion also got the beginnings of a shirt/vest (also in very primitive stages)

Well thats all for now! hopefully some more progress in the next few days!

Mion & Shion Conversion (minor nudity)

So I have decided to take on a fairly large project. I will be making my own versions of the characters Mion and Shion Sonozaki from the series Higurashi.
The kits I will be using can be found here (Caution: Nude Kits!) for Shion and for Mion So I have started doing a lot of the prep work for both girls, nothing too exciting yet but I will update with more exciting progress soon!

The part break down for both kits
Some basic tools I will be using
The prep work on these kits, Mion's in-particular was less then kind! I wont post a lot of the boring stuff, but the gaps in the legs and arms were unruly!
I have puttied the legs and arms for both girls and made the bodies one solid piece so I can hack them into different peices! XD . I will be sculpting them some clothing later so this will make that easier!
I went out and bought a mini hack saw and sawed both ladies in half at the hips and one of mions arms off! as you can see I have also sanded away their nipples!! O.O
Shion had a large bow on her head I needed to get rid of, so I sanded it down and filled the gap...
And Mion needed a bit of a hair cut, so I trimmed her up ;) 
I had to clean up the new join in the girls waists, so the got temporarily puttied back together (vasiline in between to make removal easier)
Well, thats all for now! I will be updating again soon! The girls will get some clothes soon I promise!

1/7 Sailor Saturn

Ok, so hear is my most recent finished work. I'm actually not to keen on the was she turned out. I had a lot of issues with her assembly.... Never the less, here she is. She's a tiny little girl, but her big staff takes up its fair share of room in the display cabinet.
She is completely hand painted... and REALLY DUSTY for no apparent reason *facepalm*

well thats all for now!
