Custom figures  
I'm working like crazy to finish up some Bleach pullips so that they can go on display at Anime Boston (the store AniMadness will have them at the con and at the store before/after for a bit).

First: The Villains ('cuz they're more fun)

Ulquiorra was done first.
"There is nothing my eyes don't see"

Ulquiorra Cifer
(he does have cat eyes, they just are a lot easier to tell are cat eyes in person)

Ulquiorra's stock is done!

Ulquiorra's Sword
His sword, recreated in 1:6 scale

Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez
Grimmjow's turn :)

Grimmjow's mask

(the mask is removable and articulated. All done w/hidden magnets. Rawr)

Grimmjow need shirt.  Grimmjow don't care.
Uh... trying out for the "Men of Bleach" calendar?

Making friends?
Bonus cute picture. Yeah, the bird is real, lol

And if you've gotten this far... I'm working on an Ichigo and Nel next. Try and find 'em at Anime Boston :)

Thanks! I'm hoping the set'll draw some Bleach Fans :) The dolls are insanely fun to play with...even as an adult, lol

Wow, that's some amazing craftsmanship!

lol, well I've been doing it a while, thanks :)

They are AMAZING. You have an incredible talent for customizing :)

Also, you should make more and sell them XD
Requiem Artrequiemart on March 9th, 2010 05:11 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Ichigo and Nel will be up for sale at the store/con, but the dolls are insanely expensive (the base doll is $100, there's usually $100 or so in supplies to make them, and then they take 30+ hours of work) so I don't usually plan on selling them :)

You...made...these? Wow that is some great work. You should be proud of yourself, that's some amazing craftsmanship.

Ulqui looks so cute without the mask and the messy hair...he reminds me a little of Edward Scissorhands. XD
Requiem Artrequiemart on March 9th, 2010 05:15 pm (UTC)
My goal is to have each doll be a little better than the one before (I'm my own toughest critic ;) )

I don't sculpt the dolls/make the bodies from scratch, but both of these guys have had their heads resculpted (grimmjow a little, ulquiorra a lot) to look more like their characters, then I do the full makeup, eyes, hair, clothes, accessories, etc.

WHOA. I wanna snag all of them. 8D
Good job on these by the way! :)
Requiem Artrequiemart on March 9th, 2010 05:17 pm (UTC)
Thanks! They're pretty challenging to make, it was fun :)
oh gallant piglet,: grimmjowaizome on March 9th, 2010 01:26 pm (UTC)
Holy crap, your eye for detail is amazing, not to mention your painting skills! And I never would have known what size these were until seeing the shot with the bird. XD Great work!
Requiem Artrequiemart on March 9th, 2010 05:16 pm (UTC)
lol, yeah, the bird does put them in persepctive. They're about 14 inches tall...and my smallest paintbrush is so teensy that sometimes the paint dries between dipping in the tip and applying it to the face ^^;

dear gods, these are amazing!!

I want little Grimmy *.* he's sooo cute!
Requiem Artrequiemart on March 9th, 2010 05:17 pm (UTC)
They're 'naturally chibi' :D

These are amazing. I really wish I lived on the same continent so I could see these in RL. Please continue to share with us pictures of your new projects!
Requiem Artrequiemart on March 9th, 2010 05:20 pm (UTC)
Aww :( Well I'm HOPING there'll be a lot of bleach fans who get to see them at the con. Go to the flickr, there are tons of pics of each of them there :)

haha, and the parrot was not happy to be there. He prefers much taller people to sit on XD

Beautiful! I love your work!
I wanted a Rukia (custom figure) T-T
Requiem Artrequiemart on March 9th, 2010 05:23 pm (UTC)

I'm working on an Ichigo and Nel next.

Nel or Nelliel?
Requiem Artrequiemart on March 9th, 2010 05:24 pm (UTC)
Nel. She's made from a 'mini' doll, about 4" tall. If I have time I'll make a big one :)
