Tiny Repaints

I once thought that I can dress up my dolls in superhero costumes. When it gets to the fight scenes, I didn't want my dolls to get dirty. They are unlike action figures with molded on costumes. You can throw them in the mud, or paint blood on them and you can still clean them up easily afterwards.

Marvel Universe (MU) action figures are about 3.75-inch tall. That means that their faces are smaller than the fingernail of my pinky finger. (Here is a photo of my hand holding another figure in the same scale, just to show how small they are.) Although the figures are generally nice, some elements lack inspiration. I had to customize all of my female action figures. My latest custom work are the following:

Lonely Lolita

Niel is busy with his action figures. He doesn't have any time for me.

I need some company. I have been single for a while now. I can't help feeling lonely. I want to get back into the dating scene. Niel has a number of dolls but only a few caught my attention. A sweet smile has always been my weakness.

I'd like to get to know them better. I don't know if they are into someone like me. I'd like to find out. Hmmm... whom should I ask out first?

September Loot

I have been monitoring my toy spending. So far, this year, 47% of my toy expenditure went to dolls. The 53% went to action figures. For the last six months, 73% was for action figures, while 86% for the last 3 months. Last month, 99.2% was for action figures!

I only got myself one doll item last month, and it's not even a complete doll, just the head. I got a Kira head with a bad afro ponytail which I decided to customize to be a wig-able doll. I want her to look a bit flirty but so far, she looks like this:

Kira, a work-in-progress

It is interesting to note this change in my toy spending. This reflects the change on what I find interesting. Eventually, I will be blogging more about my action figures (or action dolls, as I call them) here.
