Ziggy Marshall, magician!

I had a Mattel Fashionista Zigzag Curvy hanging around, the cool WOC with half cornrows and half rooted blond curls. I also recently acquired a Wolf King Female Joker, mostly for her cool clothes, a reinterpretation of the Joker’s from Batman Begins. The two-tone hair on the accompanying sculpt put me in mind of Zigzag, whose head I liked more. I decided to make a person cosplaying the Joker.

Of course, that’s where my idea started, but Ziggy took it in her own direction. At first I thought I could pop her head on the Wolf King body and just paint the neck to match, then hide the rest with clothes. Well, it turns out that paint don’t stick to those #%&%@$ squishy bust bodies, so I hacked off the Curvy’s bust. I removed the arms and reamed out the inside of the bust with my Dremel, then glued it over the Wolf King framework. Then I had only to cover everything else up with clothes, which I did. Ziggy’s pink socks prompted me to keep her BRIGHT PINK lips and then add some more pink in the form of the hair covering her original rooting area.

Anyway, folks, here’s Ziggy Marshall, the Maestra of Mystery, the Magical Master…Maestro of Mistress… Fuck it. The title is still a work in progress, apparently. Anyway, she’s a stage magician. She can juggle pretty well, but her specialty is scrying, which is cold reading with an acrylic juggling ball as a prop.

“What’s this? Just your average crystal ball, of course.”
“What’s that? See into the future? Oh okay, if you insist. Twist my arm why doncha?”
“Oooh oooh, I’m picking up a transmission!”
“The images… They’re hard to make out, but it looks like… Yes, it’s all of you! And you’re giving me a standing ovation — and throwing your money…but only in large bills!”
“Hmmm. I should probably do something to earn that standing O, huh?”
Shalkaverse dorks Alison [right] and Brad [left] are enchanted with Ziggy’s performance. Naturally — Alison loves magic [of the fantastical type], and Brad is a magician with a specialty in juggling.
Ziggy attracts further Shalka dorks: the Master [far left], who always appreciates a good illusion, and the Doctor, who likes pretty much any kind of stage performance.
