A few people expressed interest about shrinking Twyla’s head. Getting Ghostly Twyla looks
sooo much more proportional now and the shrinking process surprisingly
softened her jaw whereas I thought she would become more angular and I’d
have to dremel, so this was a nice surprising outcome! And Headless
Headmistress Bloodgood I wanted to hybrid her head onto an EAH Cupid
body since they are a color match. She could stand to be a little
smaller for the shorter body, but still pretty happy with this combo. I
really like the EAH bodies a lot. The sculpt looks really beautiful to
me, particularly the short ones because the overall body proportions
look more realistic imo.
so, naturally, Bloodgood’s head canonically separates from her body on a regular basis – I just find it so funny that her body doesn’t even come with this. and isn’t manufactured. she’s just. a fjc*kcjng head,, alone, by itself… forever
who put her head there? what is her body off doing? why are they separate? is this more or less convenient for her? does she do this on school days when she needs extra rest? I have so many questions
She’s taken quite a lot of tender loving care and collaboration to bring her to life, but she’s here! Please meet Mad Moxxi, Borderland’s HOTTEST asset!
There is a lot to know about how she came to be, if you’re interested, please read on. :)
is my first attempt at a fairly close to actual character REanimation.
I’ve used many actual in game reference images to get her look just
right, not to mention the countless hours playing the game which
inspired this idea in the first place! Standing at almost 11.5 inches
tall, this beauty began as Headless Headmistress Bloodgood from the MH
doll line. She’s had a complete removal of factory paint, hair and
~Her new look “Faceup” (makeup/repaint)- 3x sealed
prior to new look- artist grade watercolor pencils, acrylic paints and
chalk pastels for color, MSC sealant and Tamiya x22 acrylic gloss for
shine. ~Her eyes are a permanently set acrylic design from
safrindoll.com, they have been gloss sealed and set with upper and lower
black lashes. ~Her hair is a tri color-blend of saran hair that has been rooted “permed” and set with gel and hairspray.
Clothing/Accessories Moxxi’s signature coat complete with custom fabrics was created by https://www.etsy.com/shop/lovelywoods.
Hand made buttons have been added to the coat cuffs by me. I added the
fabric bra line to enhance the bodacious shape of Moxxi’s bust and of
course she dons her famous heart tattoo which has been sealed as well.
None of her clothing or accessories should be removed. They have been affixed to remain as true to her character as possible.
What’s special about this doll otherwise? She
comes with her very own wooden, lidded, latch lock “Mox Box”
Borderlands inspired locker to preserve her when she isn’t being
displayed. This locker box was created by my husband and fellow artist,
Jessup, of AHiLdesigns. This design is one of the staple elements in
Moxxie’s world. "Loot lockers" can contain all kinds of things but this
one is most special as it was made for Moxxi.
The locker has
been primed, painted and aged with artist grade acrylic paints for woods
and metals. You’ll find hand made paper venting that mimics that of the
game lockers as well as the “light” indicator. Inside you’ll find Miss
Mad Moxxi herself along with a gorgeous name plate and other mementos.
