Amiibo customizing

Lou convinced me to start customizing some Amiibo figurines. (I mentioned one in my previous post.) In case you don’t know what an Amiibo is, it’s basically an electronic figurine that you use in conjunction with some Nintendo games. They’re fun to collect (even if you don’t use them for the games) and there’s some really cute ones.

This is Deku Link. Lou suggested this one. It’s a character from Zelda: Majora’s Mask. I customized this one from a regular Toon Link Amiibo. You can see a few more angles that Lou put in a little album here.

Clearly you can tell what this guy is. Andddd again with the food. I know. I have a problem. Hopefully I’ll have time to make more soon! They’ve kind of relaxing.

Customizing vinyls and other crafty bits

I have all kinds of projects going on at the same time. Here’s a few of what I’ve been working on.

This was a Trikky vinyl figurine that I’ve literally had sitting on my desk for three years blank. I had performance anxiety or something. I just couldn’t decide what to make! I finally forced myself to make a move. Naturally, I went with two of my favorite subjects. Cats and food. I’m still pondering if I want to add a nose. I think he looks so cute without one. But also kind of strange.

I tried to loosely base the figurine’s coloring on my cat Spike. This is an older pic of when I caught him in my light box. NOW I know why there’s always cat hair all over my desk.

I also started another custom Munny figurine. LootCrate is running a design competition, so I thought I’d give it a try. There’s less than two weeks left before the deadline, so I’m scrambling. I couldn’t help making another Spike replica too. I know…I have a problem. Still working out how I want the face to look.

I just finished a little custom family set as well. I have to take some proper pics and then I can mail them off to the recipient! I hope they like them!

As if I don’t have enough going on, Lou convinced me to start customizing Amiibo figures too. I’ll save that for another post though!
