Phoenix Kaelen Project

I have no idea how many pics we can upload to one post - so here goes.... Sorry for the spammage.

I spent a ton of time on this guy, and things still need to be done. The Padawan braid is annoying and may have to go.  The legs need lengthening, and I'll be making a shoulder holster for the gun.  He'll probably also get a sword with a scabbard and a few other bits, like a smartphone.

So far, I've done most of the clothing.  Today I carefully darkened his eyebrows and it makes the world of difference to his looks.

Having kept my creative writing life well away from my doll blogs, I decided what the hell.   This guy, Phoenix Kaelen, is a character figure.  He's my intellectual property, and in creative roleplay writing, I use Ewan Mcgregor for his face.. Mr McGregor is very much not my property, he belongs to himself and I have nothing but respect for the man.  Phoenix Kaelen is God's henchman, a dark angel, and it's his job to travel around the cosmos putting out the trash.  Mostly demons.  Kind of like a celestial James Bond (Although Phoenix would say Bond is a pansy.)  He's not so much an asshat, more of an ass-sombrero, but he has a heart of gold and is pretty much a good guy.  Mostly.

As for the doll action figure, I'm, so darn proud of him that I had to record him here for posterity. :)






























Seriously, those eyebrows and some careful lighting have improved his looks beyond measure.  It was a pretty good portrait of McGregor to start with, but now he's such a handsome boy.

Alas, poor Ken looks sad and naked now that Phoenix has nicked his gear.  But then Phoenix has a baseball bat and a gun.   What chance did Ken stand?

    1. Well, Phoenix is 5 on the Kinsey scale, so it's a shame you don't have boys... ;)
