Title: He doesn't much like me calling him an accessory...
Post by: Arden Fisk on May 19, 2014, 05:08 PM
Say hello to Slur the Kowakian Monkey-Lizard!  Fidgitt the Rodian has found a decent gig contracting himself out to the Hutts and other unsavory underworld characters.  Because that job requires a fair bit of tech affinity (a skill Fidgitt never much got the hang of) the Hutts have imposed a partnership with Slur, a filthy foul tempered little monster who somehow has managed to become a decent slicer.

Slur will be set to ride on my left shoulder via a system of neodynium magnets.

He started life as the 2013 Star Tours Salacious Crumb doll, but I repainted him extensively to add more depth to his skin, tattooed him, installed some creepy orange eyes, and sewed him a sassy little vest where he holds his lockpicks and slicing tools.  I'm hoping that Fidgitt and Slur will look suitably unsavory... the type of aliens who'd steal your kidneys and give you a wedgie on the way out the door.  ;)

You should battle him against some of the other Swarzy animal fiends around here :)

I'd pay to see that.

This is so excellent. I think he's going to look AWESOME on Fidgitt's shoulder!

He is one cool little stinker, love what you did with him!


Where would one get eyeballs like you put on him?  I'd be interested in doing that with my Kowakian monkey-lizard, really adds some authenticity to it.

He does have that air of "I scamper around looking up the skirts of Twi'lek dancers"

Absolutely!  The eyes really add a ton, so much better than the painted-on ones.  I got mine from this Amazon seller, be sure to get the 12mm, and they have every possible color you could ever want.  :D
