Introducing my newest ABJD project...Mero!

Ahhhh, little Mero is finally finished! I can't believe it. ( ´ω`人)
I put many hours of work into this boy...

His body was not in the best condition and needed to be sanded because his resin was so yellowed and also had small chips. His mold was also sanded and modified slightly (eyes, nose, lips, and eyebrows), and so were his hands (sanded, separated). I painted his face, gave him a 3/4 sleeve tattoos, and full body blushing, restringing, wiring, THE WORKS.

I'm just so glad to have him done. My precious little Unoa Lusis boy~ So colorful, sweet and stylish~ :heart:
Mero's OC is a playful, sensitive and flirtatious boy. He works at an Idol Cafe and loves make-up, fashion and food. Especially Melonpan!
What is Melonpan, you say? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melonpan <<< See here! Now, can you guess where his name comes from? :D

I hope you love him as much as I do, everyone! ;u;



~



(Yep, this character is a boy (a very girly boy) but it is also just a doll, so please take your nonsense remarks elsewhere. I'm plenty aware that he looks girly -- I designed him to look this way. If you dislike it, no one is making you look at this photo, just yourself. So if you have an issue, just look elsewhere and spare me (and yourself) the stupidity of commenting. Thank you kindly.)

Model:
"Mero" - Unoa Lusis 1.5 faceplate / Unoa boy body

HOLY CARP. I just realised that my FAVOURITE snack, which I usually refer to as "that delicious Mexican bread-thing" is melonpan! lol I adore melonpan! And Mero is unfairly cute, of course~

LOL! XDDD That's actually fairly accurate, too. Since there's a similar type of bread from Mexico! I loveee melonpan. So yummy!

And thank you! Glad you like him. :aww:

I loveee melonpan, so it was a find. :) Homemade (bakery) melonpan looks a lot like that, but the packaged kind, not so much lol.

Aww he is such a sweetheart!! What a fabulous and very colourful boy. I adore his face-up it suits him so well!:la:

In regards to all the work you forked in to make him what he is now, it was so totally worth it all.
He's so sweet and cute I can't get over him haha.
I love the name too, very suiting to his character and I am dying to get a better look at this tattoo sleeve you speak of o: !!

I'm definitely a fan of Mero :iconlaheart: xoxo

Thank you so much!! I'm really happy with how his face-up came out. :) I was worried his green eyeshadow wouldn't be bright enough, but it's so bright and lovely! :D

I think he's worth it, too. He was in such bad condition, and I'm really happy to have restored him. :) Plus, his damage allowed me to actually be able to afford him, LOL. Even though he doesn't look damaged anymore. :D

Don't worry! I will post more pictures of him with his tattoos!

But you draw so well that I'll probably have the urge to crunching him (´ ▽`).。o♡!

The cutest Lusis I've seen... I've never been OVERLY fond of the sculpt (although I do see some nice face-ups on it and such) but your cute boy makes me love it *A* and his character too! So adorable~~ I just wanna squish him.

Really?? ;0; Thank you so much! I'm so happy you like him! It's especially meaningful coming from someone who doesn't really care much for the mold. >u<

I think you've done something really different with it and it suits the mold really well.
I feel this way about MNF Chloe too because I see her ALL the time so when someone does something really interesting it's so impressive. But your Mero really outshines all the other Lusises :33

Thank you so much ;u; That's a lovely compliment. I was determined to not make Mero look like most Lusis' I've seen out there. They're very pretty, but I find that so many look the same and are almost clones of each other, style and make-up wise. So I really appreciate it! :heart:

I get my share of rude people. |D Especially people attacking the gender. I have to remind them it's a doll, and not all people have the same gender standards! ;P
