Custom Nendoroid: SanCustom Nendoroid: SanDiary

・。*∘˚✽ HI THERE! ✽˚∘*・

A few months ago I created my first custom Nendo. It was hella time and money consuming and supposed to be a one time thing… but besides money and time consuming – I guess just like the rest of this hobby of ours - it was also hella addictive. Therefore, barely one week after my „nice, but never again“-attitude started, I already found myself ordering pieces for my next project: San from Princess Mononoke ♥

Finding the right pieces was quite difficult, since they kinda didn’t existed. While my first custom started with me finding the perfect faceplate, for San, I coulnd’t find matching faceplates, hair nor body… but something as trivial as this shoulnd’t stop one… right? XD
If you clicked on this article, but aren’t aware of who she is, may I present to you:

San, alias Princess Mononoke.
The only princess I ever dreamed of being.

Now for the parts I deemed to have at least somewhat of a resemblence to San^^:

Serious faceplate: Asirpa (ITEM #659762)
Not as serious faceplate: Hatsune Miku Symphony Ver. (ITEM #777228)
To be frank, this faceplates looks nothing like San^^. The eyes don’t have the right shape, the iris is too bright and the expression too sunshiny… I just reeeaally loved it haha.
Hair: Mitake Ran (ITEM #806062)
Body: Tainaka Ritsu Live Stage Ver. (ITEM #26115)
Soo.. I went with this dress cause of it‘s quadrangular décolleté (which resembles Sans). But after cutting the inept parts it looked a bit messy and the coat covers the upper part anyway… probably could have gone with any other dress tbo.
Legs: Tainaka Ritsu Live Stage Ver. (ITEM #26115)
Took the ones from the dress and added some fitting shoes… BUT: The cinderella-level perfect shoes would actually be Senkuus (ITEM #905455). His boy could work too I guess… well… I really didn’t wanted to wait for him to come out so that’s that^^
Arms: Midorima Shintarou (ITEM #740126)
I just looked for arms without any sort of clothing and those were the ones being sold. Not perfect, but my wallet I’m not that picky.
Coat: Asirpa (ITEM #659762)

Since the pieces weren’t exactly perfect matches I had to do A LOT of cutting, sculpting and painting. But I love how mediative this kind of work is *:・✽˚∘*・

Work in progress:

Nooo I didn’t put those books in the background to cover my messy desk… *cough cough*

I removed their eyebrows with turpentine and drew knew ones. While at it I learned how freakin expressive those two lines are. One brushstroke in the wrong direction and the expression changes from „look at this lovely sunset darling“ to „is that a chicken on your head???“

In addition I was reminded that I apparently lack even the slightest bit of patience. Waiting till something was dry before continuing was a pain in the ass and most of the time I – despite knowing damn well I shouldn‘t - touched it and smudged it into oblivion.
Also I have yet to learn how to avoid brush strokes^^ Well San is a „inner values and not burning my forest down counts“ kinda person so I hope she forgives some exterior imperfections.

By the way, I made her a little tree-spirit-companion (/•-•)/♥
Now here we go: Both of those cuties together:

Let’s hope Good Smile Company get’s their hands on the Ghibli license and blesses us with an official San. Wanna know how her faceplate is supposed to look like after nendofication haha.
I hope you like my version of the little princess and I hope you had fun reading my attempt at formulating coherent sentences ;)

Have a nice day!*:・✽˚∘*・

Gah, you're making me blush. ^^ Not a nendo, but I'm just wrapping up a custom Trading Arts Mini - I'm making Earl Tyrant from FF Unlimited. Instead of his baggy... whatever he's wearing, mine's in a onesie with a bib, lol.
Aww you're too cute ♥ But no, I just have a non figure related account. Do you have one? :3
Ooh those are cute. I don't know the character, but I'd love to see how he turns out. Hope you'll post pictures! :D
