Here comes the next challenger. . . . Chizuru kagura.
chizuru is a playable character from snk's fighting video game series king of fighters.
chizuru kagura, is a priestess and last heir of the yata clan which for hundreds of
years bound the power of the orochi with the yata mirror. After seeing her older sister killed by a priest of orochi, chizuru strengthened her resolved to do whatever she could to destroy the power of the orochi once and for all. Chizuru used the clan's resources to amass a fortune to find warriors that might aid her in destroying orochi. She found those warriors in a tournament called the king of fighters. Using her fortune, chizuru became sponsor of the 1996 tournament in which she found two fighters whose destiny like hers was tied to controlling the orochi power. During the end of that tournament the orochi priest, goenitz that killed her sister revealed himself and through the efforts of chizuru, kyo, and iori was defeated and his ambition was seemingly halted. Feeling there was more to goenitz plan, chizuru joined the gorgeous fighters team in 1997 as an alternate for yuri sakazaki. Chizuru would be invested in kof for the tournaments in 98 and 2003, until her power was stolen by ash crimson. Chizuru uses her kagura style of martial arts (which is like a form of dancing) to eliminate the orochi power where ever it may rear it's many heads.
chizuru kagura was customized from a ml storm upper body, ml psylocke arms, lotr eowyn legs, ml wasp feet, lh witchblade head, other figure odds & ends, and sculpting.
customizer side note: here is my new king of fighters team for the month of march,
the gorgeous team featuring mai shiranui, king, and chizuru kagura. Women, women,
women for the month of march. Learned a lot in the scaling department such as it's just not about height, but also width that makes a figure look in scale. Because i endowed the mai figure it makes her seem so much more larger than the other two figures, even though she really is the smaller of the two (not counting angled pony tail). All in all i used a mixture of foam, rubber, sculting and figure parts for the clothes that came out a lot better than even i thought. I was disappointed with chizuru's thinness compared with the other two and try as i might to make her a little taller. With king, regardless of how many different shades of purple paint i used she still ended up looking shiny, after viewing the end product i would have liked to make her 3 centimeter shorter and use a prettier head.
so see you soon with april's team.
