Hi folks! I'm focusing my hobby attention on two seamless figures, a Phicen woman and a Jiaou man. (By the way, I think the Jiaou figures are underrated. The one I have is great.)

I'm using them as a regular, no superpower, modern, civilian couple to photograph doing outdoors activities like camping.

I wanted seamless figures for the sake of possible nude scenes or just for arms and legs showing in shorts and swimsuits. But I need to clothe them. There are plenty of outfits designed to fit seamless women. My problem is the guy. I ordered some jeans from China. When they finally arrived, I couldn't get them over his hips. Most of the male clothes seem to be made for slimmer traditional joined figures.

My question is: does anyone have suggestions of where to find clothes, especially jeans and slacks, that will fit the seamless men? Affordability is an issue. Thanks!!

Jeans can be tricky. They are often too tight, as are generally Ken or even GI JOE clothes. But some jeans have worked for me with Phicen/TBLeague male figures, and I assume they would on a Jiaou as well (I've only dressed up Jiaou male figures in boxing shorts so far, but I don't think their relatively slender build would be more trouble than the Phicen/TBLeague ones). The problem is that I haven't really kept track of what is from what brand when it comes to these pants. I know that the Dockers-type pants that come with the Dinosaur Expert outfit set fit on Phicen/TBLeague male figures, as do some of the Hot Toys pants (like those that came with Dutch or with Yondu), even though they are generally known to be on the tight side (but they would also be generally expensive even when parted out). The black dress slacks from one of the several dress suit sets (again, not sure what company, possibly Pop Toys) also fit. Here are some examples of long pants on Phicen/TBLeague figures (below). One last thing: when searching on (say) eBay, include "Phicen" and/or "TBLeague" or "Jiaou" in the search terms ... there is no absolute guarantee that products listed with these terms included would really fit, but it might help.

GubernatorFan,

I LOVE your pictures! My favorites are the first two, but they are all good.

You've found clothes that fit perfectly. I'll try searching eBay again. Right now, the only thing I have that will fit is a pair of GI Joe fatigues, but I'm not really wanting military style stuff if I have a choice. Thanks for the info.

You're very welcome! I just wish I could be more helpful but don't often remember the particulars. With seamless figures, I am often too lazy to kit them up completely -- some would say it makes no sense as you can use regular visibly-jointed figures for that (and there is plenty of truth in this), although in my case it is mostly the pain of sliding clothing (especially clothing with long sleeves and pantlegs) over the silicone, and the potentially ever-present danger of staining. If I were keeping these arrangements more permanent, I might have had a better grasp of what works best.

I positively must concur with Maternal Unit… Your photographs (and captions) are unfailingly entertaining, GubernatorFan…

"Fresh air." Hahaha!

But who hired that doggone Cleitus in the first place? Common sense and a diligent work ethic? He's obviously overqualified!

And, "Fire Chief" fuels?! There's definitely some small-town fishiness going on up there in the Blue Ridge…

And, indeed... Behold! What steely hair!

Wholly remarkable how it maintains its shape, in spite of a skyscraper three-quarters up the backside...

:think

And, of course, sometimes your photos without captions; well, they tend to speak volumes, too, don't they?

Is that supposed to be the first scene of some vintage 90's porno, or what? WTH?!

Cutie: "Can I be of any assistance to you, Woody?"

Woodsman: "Well, you've got a nice little ax there, Cutie, but... Timber!"

:popcorn

LOL. Goodness.

Thanks for the sharing, Guv! Your generosity may truly be equaled in measure only by your sense of humor.

As always, this is very informative. I do have a few similar questions regarding outfitting, but I will post those in a separate thread at some point.

Bienvenue et bonne chance, Maternal Unit!

I'm glad you like them and find them funny, although at times I am a little worried about the interpretations you apply to them... You do realize they are out of context. The one with the skyscrapers was my first attempt at blue screen (superimposing Superman on the background). Most of them come from threads showcasing the use of items not specifically designed for sixth scale or actual "funnies." For example, the one with the tree stumps is showing the fake tree stumps sold as decoration pieces in Hobby Lobby and also one of the small jewelry axes from the same place (come to think of it, her metal and leather armor is also the product of the things they sell in their jewelry aisles). I'm just deploying the photos since they happen illustrate pants on seamless figures. One more below, from a how to make a hairy body "tutorial."

For these threads with plenty more stuff, you can look HERE and HERE.

Of course I realize that, my friend...

Please do not misinterpret my interpretations as misinterpretations of your intention; or, more specifically (and certainly somewhat worse), as unintentional misinterpretations of your unintended interpretative meaning…

Meaning, quite simply; that you clearly enjoy the jest. And I enjoy the jest. No worries necessary at all.

And with regard to the Superman photo: well done, indeed. I did not honestly misperceive him as being literally impaled, as implied. Lol...

Although, that steely hair would yet endure, I'm sure.

As for The Woodsman (which, by the way, were simply Ferme La Boush in its original version, I believe), well… Let's just forget what I'd said there entirely… It may have been the lighting… Lol.

:whistle

Incidentally, I've seen that Cutie's suit available online for about $20 - which I suspect is significantly more than what you might have paid at Michael's. I'm actually quite familiar with the craft store offerings in lieu of more "purposed" designs at a fraction of the cost.

And do believe me when I say that neither your resourcefulness nor skills and experience are at all lost on me, GubernatorFan.

I've only utmost and sincere respect and gratitude, as always, Guv.

:)

PS: "Bringing Hairy Back..." Nope. Nevermind... :rolling

I do aim to entertain... at least a little bit. Shouldn't "Woodsman" be called "Huntsman"? I mean, he did play that role... I am probably missing your reference. The outfit for "Cutie" is a kitbash -- you won't find it online or in Michaels (and the raw materials were from Hobby Lobby, for what it is worth). Unless someone has liked it so much they made a copy of it. The scale armor is recycled from a Phicen Red Sonja, the helmet repainted and modified from something else; the leather work was all me (by now the footwear is in shambles).

HERE is the original thread.

And entertain, you certainly do… And yes, perhaps somewhat so in relative moderation, it would seem - although, nonetheless, quite thoroughly...

"The Huntsman" had not been in my thinking, Guv. I'd meant only pure absurdity - in jest - and inasmuch, there's also no such film. Lol.

And please do pardon me my French, quite literally.

Yes, that must be the Red Sonja outfit that I'd seen - but you've spruced it up quite nicely here. Again, well done…

All in good fun, dear sir.

:lol
