PostSubject: My Schleich prince (customized a bit)   Tue Jun 05, 2012 11:40 am

Hi there. Yesterday me and my best friend were out in the malls and I wanted to get the prince, since I got a princess around Christmas  cat  He is a collectible, so very soon he'll be out of stock (though, there were plenty of princes). I guess no one was interested in him, because the young Schleich lion is long gone from the stores  Sad

Anyway, I thought the prince looks good, but there was something missing... his face seemed kind of plain to me. I told my friend "how about sideburns?" and he told me that I'll only mess up the nice figure.

Later on when I got home I got a black permanent CD marker and draw him a little sideburns. It went bad, so I continued with full beard much like the style of Lemmy from Motorhead  Laughing Then I added a little goatee as well, but he didn't look very good this way. In the end he had full beard and it looked kind of bad  Rolling Eyes

So later I tried to "shave" him with toothpicks and it went well. The effect was good. I left him with a little beard on the side and a full goatee. I'm posting some pictures below  cat Do you like his new style?

I customized him a bit more... I made a mantle for the prince out of an old leather glove :)

Some pictures of it:

Do you think I should keep the mantle or remove it? cat

The chain thing is there, because something had to pull the mantle down, otherwise it looks funny
