London After Midnight by Maru-Light London After Midnight by Maru-Light
After only a few months, I decided to give London a makeover and repaint him from scratch. I never knew exactly what to do with him in the first place, and after living with his first faceup for awhile, I realized that whatever it was, that wasn't it.

So here's London v.2.

London's a Soom Dia/Heliot hybrid. He's only half finished, I still need to do all of his body aesthetics and possible hand/claw mods. And he has a pair of Leeke Goral horns that I need to paint and attach...

Face up & photo by me :)

Lips and eyes. That's all this boy needs. Both are equally stunning, though I personally adore his eyes just a wee bit more. There's just something...otherworldly about the way he's staring out at the world. In a way, he reminds me of Blind Mag, but more mystical. :love:

Beautiful job with the eyes, darling. And those lips are to die for. Can't wait to see the rest of his body when your done with him. This wasn't the boy that was sitting on the little chair was it?

If it weren't for the fact that I just can't handle that body and my SD quota is well and truly met, I'd sohave caved ages ago myself! As it is...you have one I can paw instead! WIN/WIN!

Oh and I *much* better luck with mark lastnight. He just has a few more touches to go and then he's done :D I'll get shots of him later when I get home ^^

I can't wait. I have feeling that London is going to be like Cernunnos for me. :D

I'll admit I'm just a bit psyched to see Mark. :dance: Did I mention that Ayato can't either. :XD:

:D I'm trying to decide on how to paint his hooves and horns. Part of me is almost favoring all-black horns, with a black wig, it might look neat. But I'm not sure yet. I think I want to mod claws onto his hands too... that's always a pain, but might as well go all-out if he's this much of a hybrid. ^^

I'm pleased with how Mark is coming now ^^ I keep flirting with the idea of giving him an under-lip piercing (just a stick-on like London has on his forehead.) but I don't want to push it if that's not his thing LOL

I kinda love the idea of claws on London.
Wibble, I feel myself slowly caving to the idea of a Soom boy coming to live with me. :XD: Not 'til all the boys have a body of their own though. ;)

LoL. I was thinking about him having a piercing, too. :XD: It seems to fit into his character design and also help with the extreme contrast of personalities that I want between all my boys. Keep flirting with idea and tell me if you think it fits him. :D

Counting Fawn and Willow, I ended up having 5 Soom boys at my house. They infiltrated, I don't know how :paranoid: Though Anda and I eyeball Cernnunos (I never spell that right) and think how we should have invested in more monthlies when we had the flexible funds. She laments missing Io greatly.

Cool :D I'll try it on him later and see how it goes. It comes off easy enough if need be (sometimes too easy, though Bordeaux only managed to drop one of his in his adventure to the lighthouse, and I actually found it in the rocks! Go me! :XD: )

I'm still wrestling over black hair and white hair LOL I set him down next to Fawn with black hair and Fawn was like D:

Seems Fawn is the Princling now, no longer the harem boy...

Thank you!! Unfortunately not at the moment. ^^; got into the bad habit of buying molds for molds rather than characters so I'm waiting for him to tell me who he is ^^; Been waitng a long time actually...

His are Soom linens. I mostly go with Soom, if not eyeco or some other squishy type of eye. I usually go to Safrindoll to purchase. :)
