There were, again, some key ideas behind this. First and foremost I wanted her to be bare-footed, with tons of flowers sprouting behind her footsteps. Using those hot air balloon parts as flower-like dress was another. I won that set, (my first Friends set - Don't like them minidolls but nice hairpieces) on LUG event on "Build scene of marriage crisis in the kitchen with parts of 40107 Winter Skating Scene in ten (?) minutes". They worked nicely with Karzahni's beautiful marbled armor plates. I have used them in similar fashion before.
With bare feet I wanted to make bare legs too, a thing I had never tried in tan before. What a challenge! I think they look alright, the shaped could be a bit stronger, but it works. But it's very fragile and hard to balance, and impossible to pose otherwise. I think I should change the ankle joints into ratcheted ones for the sake of stability.
The upper torso consist mostly of rather ordinary green pieces bought mostly from LEGO stores in Britain and LUGBULK. Rahksi heads used as shoulder pads make the total number of Bionicle parts used here four. That's quite bit less than on the previous ones, Forfhuarú and Fómhar. The lower arms are white; Partly due to make a difference, and also to save me from using precious tan 1x1 tiles with clips. I don't have many and couple of them are partly broken.
In all, this is not very radical figure; Neither was Fómhar, the autumn girl. But Forfhuarú (Winter which I still don't remember how to spell) had those huge cold wings and the icicle crown, so I think the summer one's got to have something special and more fantasy-esque. But I do not know what, so time will tell. See you.
