Toy guns…small scale weapons…so hard to find…

February 11, 2012

My latest doll is based on the fictional character featured in the Laurell K. Hamilton series that features Anita Blake, vampire hunter/zombie animator, who is known for being very well armed. The problem is have you every tried to find weapons that are 1/3 scale? It is very hard to do. I thought a few years ago you could find all types of toy guns, but I guess toy companies are now scared of them since kids were getting shot by police who thought they were carrying real guns. Problem is I really am not wanting to make my own out of clay, but guess I am not going to have much choice. I don’t mind making her knives and swords, but making a 9mm pistol and a pump action shotgun just doesn’t seem like a very easy thing to do, but we shall see. So, here is my vision for Anita, without her weapons. She is getting close to being done and I really am enjoying making her.  Till next time…
