I made this as part of a fake swap for  Vikings, Pirates, Ninjas, and "Friends".  I'd say that this is roughly a 1 point item, time-wise, so, I still have 3 more points to go to make the 4 point quota . . . none of which I've even started on yet, so, I'd better get my butt in gear, as they need to be done by the 25th, or fake bad things will fake happen to me.

She's a "Hunting Girl", an invisible warrior from Konami's Castlevania: Symphony of the Night video game.  Other than very brief glimpses of them when you successfully land a blow, or slay them, these enemies are completely invisible, except for their swords, which float through the air in a ghostly fashion, attacking you as though they were wielded by thin air.  In later Castlevania games, these women were re-named "Nemesis", which bothers me, from a mythological accuracy standpoint, as She was the Greek goddess of divine vengeance.  As such, She would never work for Dracula--Nemesis smites evil, She doesn't serve it.

I drew the Hunting Girl on paper, glued that image to transparent plastic, etched the lines into the plastic, using said drawing as my guide, cut the figure out, and then removed the glued-on paper.  Next, I fabricated the 3-dimensional sword out of paper, painted it, and glued it to her hand.  Finally, I made the black circular base out of cardboard and newsprint and embedded the tab I left on the bottom of her foot into it to secure her.  Normally, I make transparent bases, but, considering she's already see-through to begin with, I went with an opaque one in this case.

As you can probably guess, she's really hard to photograph, which, considering that she's supposed to be invisible, is appropriate enough.











Materials:
Transparent plastic from a toy package, newsprint, white paper from an envelope, cardboard from a cereal box, acrylic paint, ink, and white glue.

Dimensions:
3.4 cm (1.3") wide x 4.1 cm (1.6") high.

Time:
One day; May 20th, 2016.

I have a permanent bruise on the bottom of my chin from my jaw hitting the ground so hard...AGAIN!  And ya got me twice this time.  There was the initial sight of her.  Just FABO!  But I did what I do with all your first pictures.  I figure... smallish action figure size. But then NOOOoooooo.  BANG! My chin hits the floor yet again.  It turns out it's Kinder Egg toy sized!  Hopefully I have learned this time that you are a wizard and just make your toys change size on a whim. Grin

Wow, as always, I am amazed by your creation.

Thank you for explaining how you made it so that we could try to create our own tiny ghost figure.

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

Her "mother" is a 12" Jessica Alba Invisible Woman, from the first Fantastic Four film (said toy is also available in fully painted "normal" form, but who wants a visible Invisible Woman?)  And her sword is one I made many years ago, which just happened to be in the right scale, and, as it's also a Castlevania creature, an appropriate choice for her to wield in this case.

It was shocking seeing the actual size of your invisible warrior!  I had to wipe my eyes and have another look.  Fantastic piece as always.  You never disappoint Patraw.
