I could buy clothes for Beth, Isabel's doll and star of Isabel's doll-based comic Beth and Death. However, I'd rather try making clothes from existing materials. After several failed attempts, I've come up with the following passable outfit. The skirt is a semicircle that I hemmed with fabric glue, then sewed up the back. I cut a hole in the center, then disassembled Beth and kind of reassembled her around the skirt. I made the halter top from some old bandage tape that Janna no longer needed.

Since I last posted about my modifications on Beth, my Takara MicroSister Fyana, her form has changed significantly. I removed her original head because, though delicately detailed, it was much too small in comparison with Death's. It was also hairless, and I didn't relish the thought of making her minuscule wigs.

In an attempt to make Beth even shorter, I took some feet from a [really cheap] 1:24 scale model railroad figure that I had lying around.

My long-awaited Takara Microsister Fyana arrived today! I plan for her to be the protagonist of Isabel's doll photostories, a comic series of adventures called Beth [Takara Microsister Fyana] and Death [Rement Pose Skeleton]. I immediately busted Beth out of her box to compare her to my other Takara Microlady, as well as Death.

I just sprang for a Takara Microsister Fyana [previously lusted over] for a cool $65.00 including s/h. Given that this mini-minifig goes for $100.00 including s/h on Ebay, I consider mine an awesome score. To add to the satisfaction, after I purchased her online at that price, she appeared as sold out at the vendor, which means I got the last one.

Anyway, I have exciting plans for this doll. I have decided that Isabel does photostories of dolls too and that hers center on the comedic relationship between Beth, played by the Microsister, and Death, played by one of my Rement Pose Skeletons. Yes, her series is called Beth & Death. Yes, it's going to be a blast, an enjoyable change from the rather dramatic Zombieville main plot.

Incidentally, I heard from my supplier of the Pose Skeletons that Rement is coming out with a second accessory pack for them. I particularly like the bicycle set [comes with bicycle pump, but no helmet], the office set [laptop, smart phone, tie, office chair] and the kitchen [counter, burner, fish, knife, cutting board]. I'm seriously contemplating getting the bike...

My Rement Pose Skeletons and sets, which I mentioned earlier, came last week. As usual with Rement, all items contain high-quality sculpting and amazing detail, especially for the price. Even the packaging [which shows one of the skeletons barfing into the toilet after drinking too much sake] cracks me up. I just wish the items had a bit more heft to them; their lightness makes them difficult to pose. That said, Isabel and I are already having lots of fun with them. See below.

For reference, the Pose Skeleton is ~8cm tall. The human figure, a Takara Microlady from the Material Force collection, is ~9cm tall. That single centimeter makes a significant difference at that size!

I just realized that the mini-mini fig of Fyana, which I've been lusting after since 2009, is actual a Takara Microsister. And I've found places with her in stock, so I can get her! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

It has come to my attention that the Takara Microladies have smaller relations with even greater articulation. At 9cm, the Microsisters have 36 points of articulation, which is more than every single one of my 1:6ers. I need a Microsister! They were even issued as part of the blank, naked, solid-colored Material Force, but those are apparently extremely rare.
