    Like the concept, but the camo needs blotches or something...right now, it looks like the nasty terrorist has stolen the juglar's vest at the Renaissance Fair, I'm afraid...

    it's hard to do camouflage that small... it's never going to look right. i weighed my options. i could have a) bought white felt and sharpied it, which would leave small patches on the fabric that doesn't look right, b) used fabric paint, which would have made it look shiny and hardened the fabric so i couldn't sew it properly, or c) cut small pieces of fabric and sewed them all together, which would have meant i would have had to pick one color of thread and it would look like the front sew-down area where it doesn't match one side no matter what

    there's no winning with figures that are smaller than the palm of my hand... as such, i just used the camo felt and called it a day.
    i could re-make it with a larger figure, as i do still have some of the bigger munny figures, but for this size there's not a lot of workability. or i could make an alternate shirt, a plain black one which would maybe work better?

    What about a double layer of felt, yellow under, green above, and then cut the holes of the camo with a punch, or make them irregular with small scissors?

    i've tried double-layering felt before while working on a cow... it's still a size issue, because the bulkiness of two layers makes it really stand out and look weird when the figures are this small. i can still try to remake the coat, but there's not gonna be an easy way to do it.

    for reference, the coat is 2 cm in height and a little less than 7 cm in length, and the sleeves are even smaller than that. so it really is just an issue of trying to scale down the pattern in a way that will fit into that tiny of a framework while not looking retarded

    oh jeez... i WOULD totally do all that because i love being challenged just to see if i can...
    but UNFORTUNATELY the thing with these particular figurines is that the ones i'm using to make all these have been discontinued by the creator, and so they aren't at the local book shop any more where i have been buying them, nor are they on their website. so, i only have about 9-10 left and i was gonna make skeletor, altair, ae tan, and angelico from lucha. i'll definitely make the baroness, and then maybe storm shadow next, but after that i can't make any guarantees because supplies. :(

    the end of this particular era of toymaking is night

    riddler... this is the first one i've done that's paint only, and i've learned a great deal from it. mainly, i am not one for long, in depth painting sessions. you can tell which areas were painted last, namely the belt where it was clear that i had loooonnnng stopped giving a shit by that point.
    still, not completely disappointed with how this turned out...

    PM me with dimensions, and many photos of the blank dolls. I may be able to make you some out of wood. They may not be exact but pretty close. Things won't be set up for a couple of months though.

    Phrasing. I wasn't offering that type of wood.

    jk, you should make one of him and Apple though ❤

    Edit: read about your supply dilemma. If you still want to make more, there are little blank minifigs called Munnys sold on ebay/elsewhere and Amazon. You could make a wishlist that's anon shipping if extra money for stuff like mini figures is an issue, some people might float a few bucks to support your disgusting felt hobbies

    i had to google that because i live in a cave... after a not-so thorough image search, i think i'd rather make skeletron

    yeh, munny is what i use. all of these figures are the little blind box marvel figure shits. the thing with getting some from amazon though is that, because they're discontinued, some of the little fuckers are going for 40-60$. i spent 80$ re-acquiring through this customizer store which also has a better variety than the kidrobot site itself as well as a lot of other customizeable shit, so i'm rock hard n ready to go for now...
