No Swimming!
Posted by Purple_Dave on October 4, 2001 at 08:02 PM CST:


Originally the design idea I had was to cover her in bubbles, but as I started building the bubbles (those would be the trans-blue RURU MASKS) I realized they looked more like crab armor, probably as a result of reading the SW:NJO series of books. I had a different use for one of the blue hooks, so I had to figure out a new hand for her, thus the crab claw, which actually pinches, as can be seen below. The hook on one hand and the giant crab claw on the other makes her look somewhat like a fiddler crab, even though only male fiddlers will have the oversized claw.




I'm not as happy with this design as I am with the first two, but the only other good idea I came up with was to make her look octopodous. (Yes, that's really a word.) Unfortunately, while that would have been more visually cool, I never really came up with a good idea for how to do that. Well, that's not entirely true. I did come up with an idea for TAHU KINO that could have worked for this, but I had already decided to go with the crab armor, and each tentacle would have required a seperate NUI-JAGA set, which I can't afford.
