Mad Bodgin’ Mage (Amiibo SMASH) Log: HI I’M DAISY

For April Fool’s this year I posted this as an April Fool’s prank…

Daisy Dukes

…kind of.

There was a broken Peach Amiibo (snapped off the base) that I repaired/modded as per the instruction of my five 5 year old niece (not an easy task). I didn’t think the princess could be more pink, but it made her happy. I cannot say the same for that picture above.

She was mad.
I also mangled a Little Mac to make something else.

Anyway…

This Bodge has been in mind since I put those two amiibo halves together. It bought to mind a game where the Mario franchise cast as a whole looked badass, like this:
Mario_Strikers_Charged_(NA_boxart)

 

In that game everyone looks like they belong in Smash and I really like the art style.
That said, here we are gonna get Daisy in on the fight!

Step one was disassembly:

Getting those legs out was a real pain. I ended up needing pliers.
After that, we gave the Daisy-to-be a trim:

…aaaand put some on her head…

…to make her new ‘do:

The next bit is one of the reasons this bodge took so long to get done: figuring out the pose.
Originally I was going to use Peach’s pose from the Strikers art:

For simplicity’s sake, I was going to replace the soccer ball with a smash ball, and call it a day.
Then, I thought I should try to mimic the the pose for Daisy’s art, but I couldn’t see it not looking odd in 3d space, given the bits I had. Plus, I needed to cover the hole in the base with the ball.

So I didn’t do either, and instead took this route:

The proportions took awhile to figure out with the dress removed.

I was initially going to use her original arms…

…but frankly, the amount of modding needed to get them to where I wanted, they’d be unrecognizable anyway.

So I took this…
41020_Vanguard_WEB

 

…and this…
73041_BlightedOgrunWarspears_WEB

 

…and extracted these from them:

Next, I bodged this up:

After that it was priming:

Before we get to the finished product, here’s the leftovers:

I got lucky, and happened to have a marble that could pass for a good Smash ball, so here we go:

The lass is now ready to smash…

…if not slightly confused by the wardrobe change.
