A telegraph pole is not a bad idea at all... including som wire and all!

I'll go with that.

Why not just insert a big rod into her? Wouldn't a pole make her less dynamic, unless she uses it to play golf with the puny humans ofc.
Does paint stick to her? I'm just curious/exited because I finally get to play with barbies without the scorn of six year old girls.

On the contrary I think modelling some scenic elements unto the base and letting the doll interact with them will help lift it out of barbiedom.

Possibly off topic - sad though...

No more of this! I'm still grieving the loss of Stargate Universe... I cannot cope with anything else.


(oh and my project here is still a bit on hold till I find a doll that hasn't got wobbly legs)

I see that the original 50s "50ft Woman" died recently alone at home and not discovered until some time after. Shame.

Best of luck with the Barbie dolls!

Sooooooo ... the lady is done. Slightly more apocalyptic than imagined but that suits our setting well.  











Next up: sheep!

I've heard of "bad hair days", but this is ridiculous!  lol

Great idea, finely executed. I have to say, though, that the eyes look a bit too "dead" (the pupils don't really seem to focus). Unless she is a 50ft zombie woman, then she's perfect... that said, local females here in Hull don't look that different in the small hours of Saturday, or so I've been told. ;)

It's a wild hair day, simply put. ;D

Thank you. I don't know if she's a zombie, but I tried to make the pupils look rather small like a junkie's.
I've added a couple of coats of water effects too now to make them look blank and watery..  o_o

I was a bit pressed for time doing this piece as this year's Random Encounters outdoor convention - ┼con - is next weekend.
