As you might remember, I've been working on and off on bringing some of my Skyrim characters to life in 1/6th scale form. So far I've created Skara the thief/archer and her squishy cob mare Inky, but not much other than that...
Until now, that is!
Presenting Breanaa the Breton!
She's on a Barbie Fashionista body at the moment, though I'd like to rebody and hair her eventually as she's a bit too skinny and her hands are pretty useless, lol. All the clothes, weapons and accessories are homemade. (most of which you can't see because of the cloak, but she's got a dagger and a couple of leather pouches.)
As with Skara's wardrobe, it's more 'inspired by' than an exact replica of Skyrim clothes and armour.
Her apron dress was made from an old skirt of my grandma's that was going to be binned (recycling ftw!) and the under-top is just felt, though it does a good impression of wool at this scale. Unfortunately Barbies still have those horrendous pointy 'high heel' feet so I did a bit of surgery with a heatgun and scalpel and now she can stand on her own for the first time ever. :P
The hood was based off original viking patterns I found on pinterest, and is made from some synthetic material I got in a massive box full of fabric oddments from my cousin. It looks like wool on this side, though not the other! If I ever got into modding myself, I'd love to make one for the game.
She and Skara met up the other day in the snow and after a brief chat, Skara offered her a ride to the nearest village...
In actual Skyrim, however, this is what usually happens to her. XD
Unfortunately for them, Breanaa’s life goals did not involve matrimony and after convincing her minders that she merely wanted to visit the local tailor’s shop, she managed to escape on her little grey mare and immediately headed for Dragon Bridge in the hope of finding a sellsword she could hire to protect her on her travels.
Although she is not good in combat, or particularly proficient in magic, she has a hunger for knowledge keener than most mages and spends as much time as she can exploring old ruins and attempting to decipher ancient texts and artefacts.
Eventually I'd like to make her pony and dog too, but one step at a time I think. XD
