Thanks so much for all your great comments, everyone, and for coming to visit! I'm glad to hear that Geocities has been behaving slightly better again.
Now, to answer individuals questions, comments, etc...Chewie
-- what part of the Squib did you not like? I only got "I love everything but the on this." But the what? Let me guess -- the eyes? They are a little tiny bit zombie-ish, I agree; I'm toying with the idea of adding one more black pupil in the middle to help them look more like eyes. BrentS
and any others who may be wondering about Telfien's robes: Glad she turned out to your liking! I wish I could take any credit for having sewn this outfit, but alas, I can't. It's a Li'l Bratz bathrobe from a fashion pack that I got on impulse on the off chance that it would fit 3.75" femmes -- and it did, or at least it fits the tiny li'l Deluxe Leia body. I had to seam-rip the trim off of the sleeves so they wouldn't be too long, though.Quazar
, Gand thanks you most graciously for your exceedingly kind words about her and the Gand. Gand will do her utmost to live up to them. Even if it means talking funny sometimes. Glassman6

, and others who commented on the Snaggletooth: thanks for the comments on this guy. He was a bit of an experiment, and I admit, the thin body with the big fat ugly Zutmore (
) head does look a little odd. I mainly wanted a thinner body so as to make him somewhat analogous to the vintage Blue Snaggletooth, who was considerablly more svelte than his more mainstream red cousin. Glassman
, you should defintely do one too -- it'll be great!
To answer the question from BrentS
about the Padmé head: It's from Episode I Padmé Naberrie (blue Tatooine outfit). I sculpted new hair over it to make it more like it does in that scene (the Ep. I Padmé's hair is way too neat for the nightgown scene). I'm glad to finally have this custom done, too; this outfit was one of my favorites in ROTS, and it turns out to be one of the easier ones to sew, too! Chewie
, I won't think any less of you for having those thoughts about this figure.
And as for Chewie's
thoughts on Padmé's Ghost -- wow. You really took that custom from the ridiculous to the sublime in one paragraph!
I never thought about it that way, but I suppose she is a tragic figure, perhaps even more so than Anakin. He, after all, did
choose his path and she didn't
choose what happened to her, as you point out. There could well be a story in there somewhere -- a lot of people have suggested that I have her haunt Vader.
Now, going from the sublime back to the ridiculous, here's another take
on this figure from doomdeath
Thanks again to everyone for commenting, and for all the kind words (which includes the criticisms too, all of which were right on). I appreciate it very much. Happy customizing to all!
