I’m a poor student who is too greedy to spend money to buy my friend a Xmas present, so I decided to handmake it.
Since I figured we’d have similar tastes and I will not be very happy if I recieved a lazily beaded cellphone strap, I made a figure of Kaiba. I hope she hasn’t changed her target of fangirling yet…otherwise that’s $3 of Fimo clay, the strap (~80 cents?) and several hours of man labour wasted. This is the first time I made a somewhat successful figure, and I’m actually gonna bother painting it. I made a Yukari figure some time back using different clay, but this clay is better. Parts of her hair kept breaking off and I had to glue gun them back on OTL
This Kaibe cellphone strap/keychain/whatever you can use it for is like 7 cm tall and pretty thick. Who the hell would actually use it as a cellphone strap? OTL and it seems pretty fragile for now. I guess I’ve gotta put glue on the chain part after all. I’m not exactly experienced with sculpting or making accessories, so it’s probably best to treat this like a figure rather than a strap.
I have a feeling painting will be much, much worse than the sculpting part.
