Archer Rain Mikamura GK - Complete

Finished 1-2012

Made for a GK Contest. My Rain Mikamura, with a small mod. Her breasts were separate and looked unnatural to me because, in the anime, there is a system that coats the body in a form-fitting fabric…but it shouldn't suction-cup around each breast, it should stretch across them. So, I puttied in-between the breasts to simulate stretched clothing. Also, the bow came with a thin piece of resin as the string…but I didn't like the look of it, so I removed it and glued a piece of clear fishing wire in its place. The base is made from the lid of a can of Fix-a-Flat XD She still tries to topple a tad if pushed, so I'm looking into a way to weight down the one side a bit more.

I was going for a very pearly, glossy look to her costume, like this picture: ... emeGod.jpg

The black parts came out more purple than I would have liked, but it still looks okay and I didn't want to spray transparent black over it to darken it for fear of losing the consistent pearly luster. The pictures from the anime show the bow and spiral resin base being pink, but I thought it looked strange, so I opted for white with lavender/violet gradient.  *As always, click for larger images.

Please enjoy my third completed kit, Rain Mikamura.
