Custom: Girls’ Generation | Yoona [윤아]

– FIGURE IS NOT FOR SALE –

CustomYoona07My second custom Girls’ Generation figure was actually my first. It was because I found Yoona’s portrait on eBay that I started to realize I could eventually make most, if not all the members. I remember one night scouring eBay for female heads because I wanted to create other characters for my Batman stories. Suddenly I spotted her head sculpt and began in earnest to find more.

I eventually purchased the heads for Taeyeon, Yoona and Seohyun for my first batch. I also bought the first generation bodies from Kumik, but they weren’t that great, so for a year or so these heads remained without a body or outfits. I sometimes can’t believe how much time went into getting all the pieces – 9 heads, 9 bodies, and 9 outfits is both costly and time consuming. It seems like it was just yesterday, but it’s been years.

CustomYoona01Yoona is one of my favorites, although it’s not like I dislike any of them. I think her demeanor can sometimes be misunderstood, but I think she’s cool and interesting. She is of course the member that represents Girls’ Generation’s image and is often at the center of pictures. She’s a great actress but her dancing and singing skills shouldn’t be underestimated. She is just a lot of fun to watch.

Head:
As stated, this is another Kumik head that’s a pretty dead-on likeness to Yoona. She looks like she’s about ready to burst out into one of her wide-mouth laughing episodes. You have to use a nice hair scalp piece though or she can look a bit strange. Kumik seems to have changed the material they use for hair, so the one I have on Yoona is more current than the actual head and falls much nicer than the older hair pieces.

Body:
Like my Seohyun figure, Yoona also sports the same body from Play Toy. I’m hoping the version 2 body will be better but until then, these are just fine. I don’t use the Kumik bodies because they are lacking quite a bit compared to a lot of the bodies on the market. I also don’t care for the body that comes with the deluxe set for the girls that Kumik recently started offering.

Outfit:
It’s the same baseball outfit from Super Duck which cannot be found anywhere. I’d love to use something more current, but these are just fine.
