Today I am doing a post I wanted to a while ago and never found time to write something…Not too long ago there was an event called “World of Magic”. It was kinda tribute to Harry Potter and all magic and enchanted things. When I was there it felt like Christmas to me and I nearly could have bought everything if my wallet would have unlimited depth 😉 I love Harry Potter and I love magic, fantasy and everything mystic.
When I saw the “House ELF” head from Hotdog I was instantly in love. Even if it is a little grumpy and doesn’t really fit on the Maitreya mesh body, I had to get it and fool around with it as long as I could make some pictures. Originally the head and skin applier were made for the Louis body from ‘The Prop Shop’ (you can find that HERE), but I did not want to get another body that I not yet know what to do with it besides one post only, so I used my Maitreya body and tried to make it fit. Since the skin applier os an OMEGA applier, It worked on my Maitreya body as well – doesn’t look nice on it but for this pictures I only needed the skin on the hands *grins* The head comes with a little AO for some movements and blinking, but other than that you are not able to customize it. I just needed a jacket or top, which has a high neck collar so I could hide the seam between body and head. With the “Tailcoat” and its inner part that worked perfectly.
Again I faced the problem to find pants that work with the tailcoat. It is a pain in the butt to find pants for a certain top if they are not made for each other. With the old layer clothing, or with sculpts and even with the standard sizes we were able to cheat around a little bit, but with fitted mesh ou have no chance anymore… After trying each and every pants in my inventory that could fit the style of the coat, I found exactly one that worked – the pants of the “Lexi Suit” from Tori’s Stylez. They weren’t too high at the waist and matched the look.
I saw quite a few posts made with that special head and so I had to find an idea to not repeat any of them. First I had something in mind with a little baby elf from Black Bantham from the same event, but that was done so many times so I thought I need t come up with something else. I do like the idea of free elves, that they can choose a job on their own will and just be independent and accepted in the magic society. So I thought about the idea of Hogwarts having a casino night with some guests from other magical schools and the elves are dressed as concierges or butlers for the luggage of the arriving guests 😉 With that idea even the lightly grumpy face expression did work *snickers*
I really had huge fun doing those pictures and running around as House Elf for a few days… I hope Hotdog keeps making unusual mesh heads, even human ones – I adore his human heads as well, I LOVE edgy faces – and maybe someday even with OMEGA scripts so we can wear some makeup on them *makes puppy eyes*
