Apologies for the poor camera quality...
Tomin: Eh?! Why are you taking me away desu?
Tomin: Oh noes, I'm on the scales and you have a camera- you're gonna sell me on eBay! It's because I'm from Hong Kong- I'm not perfect for you blub*
Me: No I'm not gonna sell you- I've spent way too much on Skymins so I wanna make one, with your help.
Me: You're just a model for it, don't worry... (this is all you'll hear from Tomin for now...)
I bought a load of foam sheets so I was inspired to make something with them:
My dragon ornament is holding the head while the ears dry...Elvis isn't dead with a hairstyle like that!
Body, face, spiky back hair...
This is where I got the idea from- I was bored at work so I doodled (I realised when I got back that the petal was in the wrong place so re-drew it in red- doh!)
Waiting for the legs to dry- the custom clothespin I received from snowshoe11really helped hold it up- it also gives you a good idea how tall it is (the clothespin is 6").
Here she is with mouth- she can stand all on her own- that's why the legs look a bit crappy as there are glued supports in there that if I cut I fear it would fall apart. I decided to have her with blue eyes and a pink petal just for variation of the "species"...
She's not completely flat! She even has a tail!
Oh and here's some close-ups of the Shaymin Zukan (I decided to take these because the stock photos make it look poor when it looks alot better in real life so I hope these pictures give you guys a better impression of said Zukan)
I got this from this seller on eBay; http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1-40-Pokemon-DP08-NO-2-492-Shaymin-Figure_W0QQitemZ110281019388QQihZ001QQcategoryZ73577QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
PS: Raichu fans may also be interested in a butt-face Raichu auction (I won one today and with the free shipping it cost me $1.25 AU or £0.60! http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pokemon-5cm-Figure-Figurine-046-Raichu-FREE-Shipping_W0QQitemZ150284041461QQihZ005QQcategoryZ2605QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
Not 100% sure it's authentic but I know that this 10th anniversary figure is difficult to get hold of anyway...
