It’s been way too long since I finished an Infinity Base. I got hung up on the design of Jasmine’s, but when Mulan came out I knew exactly what to do. So with that, I present the latest in my series of Disney Infinity character bases: Mulan!
As always, designed in Rhino, 3D printed, and hand painted.
I wrote a ficlet in honour of today. It’s dedicated to @thisstableground, for encouraging neurodiversity headcanons and humouring my art prompts.
“Nice shirt. Is that a polyamory thing?”
“Huh?” Startled out of his train of thought,
Alex took a second to glance down at the multi-coloured infinity
symbol printed on his tank, then up at the man standing next to him
on the subway platform. “Oh, um no.”
Alex squinted at the man who had addressed him,
trying to pick up clues. He was pretty sure he didn’t know the guy,
and he hadn’t used his name, which also supported the stranger
theory. White, sandy-haired, clean-shaven. Black t-shirt subtly
displaying arms that he had obviously spent time on. Rainbow-coloured
silicon band on his wrist; the ghost of last night’s club stamp on
the back of his hand; manicured nails.
The man noticed Alex surveying him and gave an
expensive-looking grin. Oh.
Jeez, couldn’t he use Grindr for his hook-ups like
everyone else? This shit was tacky, even for the fuckfest of Pride
weekend, and it was too goddamn early in the day to deal with being
fetishised for his skin tone. Alex tugged on the loose ends of his
backpack’s straps, pulling them taut but with not quite enough
pressure to actually tighten them. He took a breath.
“It’s not a gay thing either – although I am,
in fact, bisexual.” The guy’s flinch was subtle, but Alex caught
it. “It’s a neurodiversity thing. Because today’s Autistic Pride
Day, and I’m autistic.”
The man’s expression shifted from flirtatious into
the kind of fixed smile used to humour crazy people. “Ah. I see.
“It’s pretty cool, actually. I mean, having two
different Prides to celebrate in one weekend gets kind of exhausting
– whoever came up with the scheduling obviously did not think about
it intersectionally – but it’s okay because I get to spend today
hanging out with other autistic people, and I don’t need to put any
effort into not looking weird.”
By now the other man had broken eye contact with
Alex as he cast around for a way to excuse himself from the
increasingly awkward situation. As if on cue, the train rattled into
the station before Alex could explain any further about the benefits
of a mutually-supportive autistic peer group, and the man made a
break for the door of the next-but-one car.
Alex took his own seat in the train and pulled out
his headphones, selecting a familiar playlist on his phone to block
out the other passengers’ chatter. He leaned his head back to rest
against the window for a moment, eyes closed, enjoying the rocking
motion as the train gathered speed.
He smiled to himself. Neurotypicals had such a
fucked-up approach to boundaries.

do you ever wonder what aesthetic the 2010s will be remembered for? I feel like with the rise of fast fashion we’re not even gonna have that concept anymore bc okay yeah now is all about like chokers, overlined lips, highlighters “that can be seen from space”, distressed or see-through clothing, but not that long ago we were flooded with images of galaxy print, infinity scarves, sock buns, honestly who are we
My Rapunzel base is finished! It might even be my favorite one too. The lampposts were super intricate to print and the cobblestone was a pain to paint, but I think it came out great.
So this will be my final base for a little while as I’m out of infinity characters that I want to make them for (the starter pack of Jack Sparrow, Mr. Incredible, and Sully doesn’t do much for me). I am thinking about buying Jack Skellington or Sorcerer Mickey to make them for, but what I’m really waiting for is the Merida figure to come out this fall!
And here is my recently finished Vanellope von Schweetz base! Took awhile to paint this one. Also, since someone asked, I mostly use Martha Stewart Craft paints, they coat really well and have some great colors. Up next… Rapunzel!!!
