Im going to try to get in on this one too. My new boss says he doesnt mind me getting on the computer when things are slow so I may actually be able to communicate on a more regular basis.

Has anyone thought about the ROTS luminara body. I know I've suggested this body before for other female customs but its practicly perfect for customs, and shes so abundant. Thats probably what Im going to use.

She works great for customs. I used her for my Lumiya and calamari dancer a few months back.

I just may have to steal that idea myself. Sorry, it's a good one. ;)

For those that are looking for a recipy for starting their Tonnika sisters, this one comes from Michael Collins over at the FFURG recipe area.

Step 1

First I swapped heads so Ceremonial Leia's head (regular carded version) was on "Collectors Series" Leia body and vice versa. Why you ask? Well the one in green is about a foot taller and REALLY beautiful and that Ceremonial Leia is taller than any other female figure. The one in Blue has that scowl on her face that looked like (carded) Ceremonial Leia but she's shorter so the head swap worked out great.

Step 2

The outfits were pretty easy, wristbands, belt and that neck colar thingy were made with A/B Epoxy (yes I augmented their breasts as well.)

Step 3

On Ceremonial Leia I had to chop off her lower calves and glue on boots from another regular Princess Leia. I usually superglue a paperclip between the boots and the legs for a stronger bond.

Step 4

Shave their heads so they are completley bald and paint the body now. i repainted their flesh to a more pale but try to leave the eyes alone.

Step 5

Used my infamous sewing thread technique for the hair. I just superglued a bunch on the sides and back of their heads and then put a little dab of A/B Epoxy on top and wrapped string around their heads into that beehive hair-do they got going.

Step 6

Now you can do any final touchups on their faces, lipstick, eyeliner, etc.

Thats a pretty complete recipe Phruby,

I wonder if we all stuck to this recipe, would all the figures look identical?

PS, can anyone else get  into FFURG? Its been 3 days since i've been able to go their site to load.

Here is my first work in progress update on my Tonnika Sisters. I followed the advice of the receipe above and used two different heads for the figures. I used an ep1 Padme and a slave girl Leia for the heads. The bodies are Princess Leia Collection Ceremony Leias. I had to chop off their lower legs to put new boots on them. Two ep1 battle dress Amidalas supplied the boots. You may notice that the Leia head one is a little taller than the Padme one. I had to shorten the neck on the padme to get the right effect. Also the leg was cut higher on the Padme one. These girls are sisters and not twins.

Here is a picture of them in the underwear. :o

Im going to grab my Luminaras on Wednesday. Unfortunately Ive got to go to the TRU in Knoxville, and thats my only off day. I too will be using the amidala and leia heads, But I dont think they are the same ones Phruby is using.

Off to a good start Phruby!

I should have something along these lines done by this weekend.

Actually I'm not sure what I want to do with mine. When I did Snoova,( which I have to actually post someday) I kind of "Updated" him so to speak, and went the whole "Real" snoova as opposed to the chewie in didguise. I'm not sure if It would fly if I did the same thing to the Tonnikas. What do you say Phruby. Can I do that?

Just out of curiousity what do you mean by the "real" Tonnikas. I don't know too much about them, are they supposed to be someone else?

As long as they can be easily identified as the Tonnika sisters and not just two random female figures then go for it.

Yes, apparently the sisters in the cantina were supposed to be other girls impersonating the real Tonnikas.
