Character #1 of a 5-piece Kingdom Hearts II commission for
This Sora is made from another one of my engineered poses; body of a walking pose, with the head of some odd wysteria pose where she had the stalky body of a clone pose, yet the goofy open-mouthed head like the donkey pose...
never quite seen a pose like that one before. <.< But I made it even more different. XD
Sora has a 5-day-long full head re-hair job. With short spiky hair do's, there really is no better way to do them than to just prepare an entire scalp full of hair to work with.
I used about 4-5 packages of pony doll hair. The gradient pattern has 3 plugs in a row of ginger bread hair for the main color, then one plug each of espresso and english toffee as the low-lights of the hair to give it depth.
Pattern is then repeated throughout the entire scalp.
Added silver Mickey Mouse head icon to the tail accessory.
Eyes hand-painted by me, and done in my eye-enlargement method. Was quite a challenge to get it right, as always.
Full body repaint in flesh tone acrylics, with an outfit under-layer of pthalo blue.
Outfit is entirely hand-sewn. Shoes contain light gray leather strips, a real zipper sewn to the materials of the shoes, and ribbon. I cut the front parts of the hind feet off to make the correct shape of the shoes.
Pants were a hefty challenge. Ballooning pants is never easy no matter how many times I do it, but I just have to try it, play it by ear, then I eventually figure something out that works. His jacket is hand-sewn, with white bias tape used for the borders of the sleeves, and bottom hem of the coat. It's called "bias tape", but it's really just neatly folded material that you sew to the outfit. XD
Red pockets are red leather, and I made a star fruit and attached it to one of the bags.
All of the thin piping detail is hemp that I hand-stained with silver and white acrylics. The blue strips on the "gloves" are thin blue leather, and the metal buckle parts are hand-crafted and shaped by me.
Crown pendant on the necklace is cut by me from aluminum flash thin metal material I picked up from a local hardware store.
Key blade is a wooden dowel with plastic square and triangle gems fastened to it, and painted black. The blade itself and the handle and the black crown key chain are (hand-cut by me), aluminum flash metal painted black with metallic pewter acrylic detailing. Gold pipe detailing is hemp, and hand-stained with gold acrylics.
