The Pink Bomb by hiritai The Pink Bomb by hiritai
I got this head SUUPER cheap because the previous owner had attempted some epoxy modding and figured he was in above his head. I thought I could save the poor guy, and hey, I'd always wanted a Shiro Tachibana... ever since Red Lobo of Mistula weaved his way into my heart. AHHH MISTULA.

It turned out so much hard than I anticipated. For a start, how the hell was I going to cover the epoxy without an airbrush?

Heavy fucking eyeliner for a start. I realised I was going to have to do one of my weird faceups. I don't have a weirdy in my crew at the moment anyway. SO I COVERED THAT SHIT WITH PAINT AND PASTELS AND ALL SORTS OF WONDERFUL ART SUPPLIES.

He's got a lot of purple in his faceup, as it's a colour I always want to use on one of my dolls but never do because it's a bit flouncy... and I gave him brown eyebrows so that I could give him a lighter wig. After trying on my spare wigs, he decided that one the pink one would do. Thus my natural pink Fae dude was born.


Name suggestions are most welcome. Short, easy, not fae sounding. Something like Knox, or Grell, Beau, Chel etc. None of those though, those don't fit. UGH WHY AM I SO SHIT WITH NAMES.

HOPE YOU LIKE HIM <3 I'm also going to post a before and after edit of this shot, someone asked for some at some point and I remembered this time! YAY BRAIN FUNCTION! <3


Doll is a Volks Shiro Tachibana mod(After School v.)

(for those curious of the mods, he's had elf ears added, his eyes have been made smaller, and I'm pretty sure his lip has been touched in some way.)

Thankyou ^^ Dervish, by other character, is a witch, and hunts Fae for their blood and body parts for his spells and rituals. One day he came across this guy and they had an epic battle, and Dervish scarred him with his fingernails. They're now both terrified of each other, but they want to kill each other like crazy too. Does that help answer? I am actually thinking about removing them, I dunno :<

Do you have any before pics of what he looked like without a faceup? I'm kinda curious :o and woah you really did a good job on him! The pink wig is cute, kinda reminds me of cotton candy owo!!

Oh and just sorta wondering, but would you be interested in a zaoll luv head? She was customised to have dreaming eyes. She's real cute but I have no idea what to do with her @__@"

I really like this boy and his crazy make up and pink hair <33 Do you think you'll be keeping him around? 'cause I'm looking forward to see more :3

As for names, um, Jace, Ace, Xavier, Shay, Axel, Fenix...ugh those are all I can think of for now XD

I love him already. Jax is a cool name. It sounds very... flamboyant yet relaxed. Which is how I feel this doll looks. Crazy awesome yet completely chill.

Somehow he looks like he could be a Knit.
And by the way I highly appreciate the weirdness!

Good to know the weirdness is appreciated! X3 I like dolls who have something crazy about them, I'm just so fussy about dolls in generally, the weird ones never seem to stick. This boy will though, he's special.

I think something more boyish than Knit, but I do like that name a lol actually. Maybe I'll name another one of my dolls Knit, I have a Unoa coming, with two faceplates. That means two more names, uuughhh. Knit sounds like a Pukifee, hmmmmm!

Oh my god he looks fantastic. ;A;
I also think that Jax would be a cool name, besides, it's close to Jack, and you always wanted a doll named Jack, right? XD

hiritai Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
Thankyou lovely <3 I like it a lot but it's still too close to Jack, and I'd feel weird. I'd look at his pink head and pointy purple ears... and still see my brother!Jack. I'd just think of it in plural. Jackssss things XD

Ahh... that would be the crazy inside-the-head shot from flickr earlier, yes? You've done wonders with him! :aww:

When I looked at him I thought of the name Taz or Zack but after reading the above comment I think Jax is pretty cool too. I think he definitely wants either a Z or an X in his name. :nod:

hiritai Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
Yes! XD That shot was after I'd sanded everything down and opened the eyes a bit, and then painted over the epoxy. So much work, I have a new found respect for modders now! Thankyou though <3 I'm thinking of trying to remove the scars to and just filling the scratches with a primer or something. I dunno, it's all so haaarddd *whinges*

I think an X is definitely a good idea. jack is my little brothers name and so I can't name him anything too close to that, it feels weird lol. Which is a shame because I love the name Jack, Zack, Jax, Jackson etc. Stupid brother.

Ahh I have the same trouble with naming, my little brother is called Zak XD ~ also a shame because I would have used that name otherwise! Hrmm... maybe Axl? I kinda like Vox for him though, it sounds a bit mystical ^^

~ I've just read your descriptions about him on flickr, I absolutely adore your stories, they're so imaginative! I can't wait to see more of this boy, whatever his name ends up being :aww:

He's totally weird and awesome! Fantastic :love:

And I thought of the name "Jax" when I looked at him, but I'm pretty crappy with names too ^^;

Thankyou!!

I reeeally like Jax, I've always wanted a doll called Jack... but my brother's name is Jack, and I feel weird going anywhere near a name that sounds similar. Even my character Dak is pushing it lol. I think Jax is any awesome name, and if it's any consolation I would totally name him Jax is my brother was called Darren or something <3
