Return To Main Kaiju
A K-girl is a cute and/or sexy female anthropomorphization of a kaiju,
something established by the Twisted Kaiju Theater folks. The goal is to
include enough kaiju elements to be recognizable, but not so many that the
girl becomes unattractive (i.e. while the 50s Godzilla K-girl has a bit of a
pug nose like the source monster, she's not pot-bellied or leathery).
K-girls have a strong Not Safe For Work element to them, but my own are
perfectly safe for work. Safe for sanity, on the other hand, is never
guaranteed. The naming convention is to try to come up with a real-world
name based on the character name, like a King Seesar K-girl named Cessie.
Unless otherwise noted, all base figures are gashapon (vending machine
capsule) figures, most of which I got as freebies in a trade long ago and
tossed in a box.
- Terri Kahn - Based on the Terrasaurs monster Terra Khan, using Love
Hina's Mitsune, with the back and tail taken from a Carnidon. Apoxie Clay
was used to add the head scales and torso scutes. February 2009.
- Irma Dachs - Based on the Terrasaurs monster Armodax, original figure is
Love Hina's Mutsumi, plus putty and a plastic bead. February 2009.
- Georgette D'Roi - Gorghadra K-girl, built from Nei 2nd of Phantasy Star.
- Skye Santana - Reporter for GUARD News Network, she's the Sky Sentinel
K-girl. The base figure is Ulala from Space Channel 5. February 2009.
- Ari Smothers - You'd think a flying saucer couldn't be anthropomorphized,
but you'd be wrong! MUAHAHA! Ahem. Another Love Hina figure, this
time Shinobu. I made her stool from a Vanguard. February 2009.
- Sue Groth - The Cthugrosh K-girl, never has Lovecraftian horror been
so...well, maybe "attractive" isn't really the right word. Built from a
Return of Ishtar figure. March 2009.
- Dora Faye "D.F." Hendrix - Oh, the puns in this one. Dora and Faye are
characters in the webcomic Questionable Content, which has a strong "indie
music scene" undercurrent. Defender X is sort of the "rock star" mech of
GUARD in the Monsterpocalypse comic, and while Skye follows the news
choppers, D.F. is more of a Tank Girl. I considered a "monoboob" chest for
the arc cannon, but decided on a Tank Girl-like blaster bra. March 2009.
- Zhora Dean - Zor-Raiden character, built from a Sakura Wars figure of
Tsubaki Takamura. Despite her Balkan first name, she works with the Shadow
Sun Syndicate and is trying to be a proper young Japanese girl...with
blades. March 2009.
- Penny Gunn - A Pengonn (my kitbashed monster) k-girl done as a City of
Heroes character. March 2009, revised April 2009 when I decided the chest
emblem needed to be better.
- Raquel Dawn - Rakadon k-girl. This one was built from a Melancholy of
Haruhi Suzumiya swimsuit assortment figure, so while it's about the same
overall size as the the other k-girls, the head is much bigger. I used the
neck of a cheap toy brontosaurus (not apatosaurus, it's a mold that's been
getting reused since before the renaming) for the tail, but the plastic was
too slippery and hard to glue, so I won't be doing that again. May 2009.
- Tara Dachs - Pteradax k-girl, Irma's sister. Another Love Hina figure,
Mokoto Aoyama the kendo fanatic. I decided that the coat was a good standin
for wings. I made the head spine, torso scutes and breasts from Apoxie Clay,
and modified the hair a bit to fit around. The base figure has breasts
banaged down, so I simply built up the scutes over that and then made new
(adult-sized) breasts over them. The base isn't the one that came with
Mokoto, but I modified it to fit. June 2009.
- Neville Esry - Nova ESR k-guy, the one who everyone else treats as a
little brother, much to his chagrin. I figured, since Nova ESR is
practically a k-girl already, why not make a guy? The base figure is
theoretically an action figure, but has about as much articulation as a
gashapon. July 2009.
- Flo Bose - Phobos-7 K-girl, made from my second copy of the figure used
on Raquel Dawn. I almost painted up her butt to match the green parts of her
shoulders, then realized that with green being the bare flesh color here, it
would be...unfortunate. July 2009.
- Zoe Rock - Zorog K-girl, using a Cassie Sandmark Wonder Girl action
figure for that pouty white trash look. July 2009.
- Dee Spoiler - Another City of Heroes (well, Villains in this case)
character, based on the Despoiler unit. Having Accelerate Metabolism active
helps make her look all transparent and stuff. July 2009.
- May Rodder - City of Villains Corruptor (Radiation/Radiation) based on
the Marauder unit. August 2009.
- Veronika D. Rilcon - Yes, Rilcon is a real family name. My first Series
4 K-girl, based on Drillcon-Vorionnik of the Subterran Uprising. January
- Tyra Nicks - The Tyrranix K-girl (yeah, not Tyrannix like you'd expect),
finishing off the five Terrasaur girls. I incorporated the Tyrranix eggshell
as her bikini top. January 2010.
- Mae Costas - My second Series 4, based on the Savage Swarm's fly-like
critter Mucustos. I actually had "plastic fly wings" on my shopping list for
a while during the planning phase for this (found 'em at a party supply
store). January 2010.
- Francesca "Ces" Ericks - My first Series 5, another Savage Swarmer, based
on Xixorax aka "The Buggernaut." I had to buy different plastic fly wings
for this one, since the ones I got for Mae were too big. July 2010.
- Dinah Stavros - Yes, another bug, this time the wasp Dynastavus. I used
the spare fly wings from Mae on this project. July 2010.
- Gayle Curren - First ape lady, the advisor Gakura recast as a sexy
schoolteacher. Given that my high concept here was "Schoolteacher Yoko from
Gurren Lagann, but with fur", it was a stroke of luck that I found a
Schoolteacher Yoko figure to use as a base. August 2010.
- Kristi Shore - Turns out it's a bit harder to find appropriately sized
lobster toys than I'd thought, which is why this fairly obvious idea took so
long to realize. Crustaceor the lobster-monster made from a swimsuit Rei
Ayaname, parts of a pencil-topper lobster and a bunch of Apoxie Clay. She's
more red than Crustaceor, but maybe she's getting out of the hot tub. The
hair coloring is meant to evoke melted butter. September 2010.
- Works in Progress - I'm going to lump these all together, since I
sometimes have multiple girls in one shot.
