Everox, Samurai by Gale-OneOfMany Everox, Samurai by Gale-OneOfMany
I think I need a :squee: right now XD

BOY am I happy with how this came out. I know that the arms could be better, but I honestly think that their simplicity works for this. This was made for the Self-MOC off Tournament over on MOCpages and my opponent is Everox Toa of Plasma. We were given the category of Asian Warrior, and of course, my first thought was Samurai. :iconfacepalmplz:
Building this was a lot of fun actually, and I am really happy with how it came out over all. The torso was a bit of a bugger to work, but I think I did rather well in getting the look I wanted. The "skirt" was really fun to work out, as just before the categories were announced I was working on another Fe-MOC with a skirt similar to this, and this gave me the perfect opportunity to use it :happybounce: The braid was a last minute idea, that I thought came out looking quite good. And yes, I took a bit of a liberty with the main weapon. Sue me :P I did still put in a Tachi (?) I think they're called. So =P
I forgot what else I planned on saying, so... oh well! XD

Tell me what'cha think! :)

You don't speak German fluently, do you^^?

Speak it fluently? No, sadly two years of German in high school were not enough for me to learn it fluently XD but I can read it pretty fluently, or at least I used to be able to. If I tried and retaught myself I could probably read fluently again. It is a fun language for me, I quite enjoy reading it.

I considered learning Maori for the sake of learning more about the Matoran culture :D

That's an interesting idea. It would give some insight into the ideas behind the matoran culture :)

As I saw the MOC I thought "hm, reminds me of Fenrek". Then I saw your comment. Thanks for making me chuckle.

How do you make these? Where do you get the parts from?

:shrug: Put on piece on another? I'm not really sure honestly, I just kind of put the pieces together and see what looks good to me. The parts come from a comparatively small collection that has been amassed over years. Point out a specific piece and I can probably help show you which set it comes from.

I rarely can do custom torsos. For ever build you see I post, each one had about ten different variations of torso designs before I settled on the one it ends with XD

My best way is to base on another's torso desing, and then people are like"you stole it!"

I mean, grow up people, sometimes I'm the one who found it myself!

This is so freakin cool! I'm drooling over that much orange being on a single MOC. I like the way you kept the black on the forearms. To me it looks like an undergarment and the orange is all the proper armor. I think you should keep that. This is a wonderfully well done MOC Gale, one of your best yet. :clap:

Lol, thanks Dave, it wasn't easy to use that orange XD And yeah, I was going for the black as undergarment look, glad it came across well for someone :)

It did. I understood what you were going for, but then again, I know that no one's naked under battle armor. You could have even gon as far as giving him a Kimono that would have concealed the legs even more by having various black parts drape down. Its too bad you had to use the self MOC mask. Going ultra traditional on this and giving him an oniesque mask would have sent this over the top in terms of awesomeness. I've wanted to build a Samurai, but the concept is played out a little bit so I never held it in high priority. But I know that if I took a serious swing at it it'd be a pretty involved MOC with a lot of detail. As a kid I was exposed to a lot of japanese culture through my uncle(in law), he lived there for a time when he was young and knew a lot about it. So to do one would mean I'd go hyper researched and accurate to just about every bit. I'd really cross my T's and dot my I's.

I probably could have, but didn't think about it much beyond the look of the main skirt there. I really wish I could have done a more custom and traditional looking mask too, I even had a good idea on what to do, but like you said, I had to keep the mask of the original. -.-
However, seeing you do something like that would be fantastic. ;) You really should consider it, despite the research and frustration that would have to be addressed.

I realy like the use of those masks as shoulders, they give them a nice flow, but still buff enough to pack a strong, mean swing :D. His neck seems a bit short, but being armored like a samurai, I guess that's ok ;).

He probably could, but the original was only orange and black, so this one had to be too.

Hm, ok then...
Maybe some more black between all that orange then? (especially on his chest)
But just do as you like - still is awesome! ;)
