    For those who haven't watch a single episode of SL probably they will have no idea what I'm talkin about but for those who did watch every single episode will recognize this pics inmediately:

    Now here is the catch: I have 1 month free school starting this Friday. I will change my turn in work so I can have the afternoons all for:

    1-Visiting anime conventions.
    2-Spend time with Girlfriend and Friends.
    3-Waste my time whatever I want.

    I choose option 3 for some days and I want to do this 2 SL girls in 3D but I don't know how to start.
    I mean: Besides an incredible will what else I need to make quality figures?
    What materials are neccesary?
    Any advice I should pay attention?
    Seriously I feel creative lately and I really want to do this 2 statues, figures whatever the word is.
    Can someone help me?

    you want simply statues or action figures, ala Kicker?

    if so, you can either try to get the "Microman lady material force", wich are female microman bodies for customizing, although im not sure how easy or cheap they are to find. There are at least 3 body with different breast proportions and others i think

    If not, thereĀ“s also regular microman lady figures

    And for the clothes and details, you can use styrene & epoxy

    STATUES. Not figures like Kicker.
    now I have to check Micromen figures here, I don't know if they are available.
    I never thought I could say this but: the cat-girl is practically flat and the maid-girl has big breast, right? If I decide to use Microladies how should I order them?
    Any more recommendations?

    Well you can always buy em, glue each joint in a pose and presto! statues

    Seriously, they share different similarities, mostly the joints

    As to how to order them, well just look at the pic or the name, like i said they are available at different breast sizes

    You could also use some Mazinger angels... :ev:

    Something local uh? well then, your best chance to make something, is to hand sculpt them

    Wires for the bone structure, epoxy and different tools, like a dremmel, could work

    Seriously, I don't think it's worth the time or effort to make statues of those two...I mean, not only were their voices perhaps the most painful screeching on the planet, but they're also extremely minor, unimportant "characters." Add onto that the fact that it'd probably be difficult to get an accurate reification of them, as well as the extra cost of materials...your time would probably be better spent leaving these two annoying "characters" to the annals of oblivion, where they rightfully belong.

    Mod an alternator or something instead. :p
