Rider Redux

I want to improve my performance entries, and one of my steps toward this goal is to add rider dolls. At the mini scale, it’s best to sculpt dolls (as movable parts and fabric aren’t really that scalable). So I set out a few weeks ago to make a rider for Nightfox.

As with many of my projects, the first step with cutting up an OF body with the dremel.

Customizing is not for the faint of heart.

I put many of hours in reassembling and resculpting her. She was finally starting to look human… when I realized that really the scale is off. She’s too big for Breyer Stablemates.

So I said some dirty words, put the rider in the body box, and pulled out a more in-scale victim.

That looks better! Scale-wise, anyway.

Once again, step one was all about dismemberment.

Actually, the second step is about dismemberment too- those legs don’t bend properly around a horse, the arms are straight, and she needs to put her heels down. But I can do that with heat instead of the dremel….bwahahaha.

  2. Hahaha, the first one looks so shocked by it all while the second looks like she’s having the time of her life!
