And in today's action figure project news, tenworld has sent me a package full of very thin wire and other interesting metal bits which I'm hoping I might be able to use for little jewelry pieces or whatnot.  I might also be able to combine some of it with beads that cynicalmedic sent me earlier in the year.  Hopefully I can update this thread with more project photos soon, now that my schedule is slowly starting to get less insane and I've got more time to do fun stuff again.  I may also have enough little props now--or should soon have enough--to make a medieval diorama or two to set a few short Deryni Action Figure photo stories in.  I'm working towards that goal, anyway.

Also in today's mail was a pretty little auburn-haired headsculpt that might turn into either Ailidh nicArdry or her daughter Aine Rose, for those of you who followed "Maidens of Mayhem and the sequel stories and want to see a 1:6 scale bonnie MacArdry lass.  I've got her new body at home already awaiting her arrival, so I think I'll wait until she's all in one piece before posting photos.  Poor Jass might be rather perturbed if photos of his decapitated wife or daughter appear here on the Forum....  :D

My newest lady by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

I haven't fully decided who this is going to be yet.  Probably Ailidh nicArdry or her daughter Aine Rose from my Deryni fanfic stories, but she may end up in some modern-day photostory role as well. (Please ignore the somewhat awkward pose.  I was trying to shoot this quickly so we could finish clearing the table for our Valentine's Day dinner, while also having to shove Luke out of the way so that he didn't block the view!)

And here's a close-up view.  I'll try to take a few more shots later, hopefully without as much glare so you can see her pretty features better.

LOL!  No body parts have fallen off her yet, and she doesn't smell that bad....   :D  (No, seriously, her body had a very strong odor at first, probably since she came wrapped in multiple layers of plastic bubble wrap, ziploc bags, and then a plastic mailer before the "new PVC" fumes had finished outgassing, but she's finally aired out enough for me to handle and dress her.)  Here she is in some decidedly non-medieval clothing, since I don't have any suitable Transha clothing for her yet:

ETA:  And here's the original picture of Ailidh, if you've all forgotten what she's supposed to look like.  I figured this head sculpt was probably as close as I'd ever find to an Ailidh action figure, unless I learn how to sculpt 1:6 scale heads myself.

Actually, since you made her a security officer, she's probably about to get eaten by a giant feline native to whatever world Kirk has made her beam down to.  (The redshirt always gets it.)

That picture looks as if it came out of the original series episode "Catspaw".  The female bad person changed herself into a giant cat.

I think she just went from "whatever" to "where's my phaser?"  :)

BTW, because I've forgotten, does Ailidh have grey eyes?

LOL!  True, but remember, Lt. Uhura also wore the Little Red Dress, and she survived the series (as did Yeoman Rand), so maybe the dress doesn't carry the Redshirt Curse.  Or maybe this officer is in Communications, establishing friendly relations with an alien ally. ;)

Close, Jerusha.  Ailidh's eyes are a sort of grayish green.

She got promoted from Chief Communications Officer and is now on a command track.  She must have impressed the Captain with her Alien Rapport skills.  ;)

I recognize the ruby gown, but is the blue gown in "Nice Kitty" new?
