Modifying Yuki’s Face Part For Haruhi

The Figma of Suzumiya Haruhi [Kouyouengakuin ver.] comes with plenty of accessories: her school bag, exchangeable hair piece, her sleeping bag, & 2 face parts, one of which is for Figma Nagato Yuki in order to recreate her expression from the movie, 涼宮ハルヒの消失 Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu.
Of course, I don’t have a Nagato Yuki Figma, neither do I ever plan to have one. But being such an adorable face part, I’d hate to have it be wasted. So the next logical thing to do is to modify it…
The 1st thing to do was to make the shape of the face part fit. I had to cut a chunk out on the upper right side, sand quite a bit down on the upper left side and to sand down her ears to make them smaller.
Of course, just the shape of the face isn’t the only problem, I need to somehow connect the face part too. Comparison between Haruhi’s face part (left) and Yuki’s face part (right).
What I decided to do was to put a big chunk of putty on it and then cut it into a shape that fits. I would paint it, but I have no experience in mixing paints nor can I access any hobby paints.
It wouldn’t be seen when you put it on anyways so it’s not really an issue.
Put it on and done! Yuki’s face is a bit smaller than Haruhi’s but that can’t be helped. The expression also isn’t very Haruhi-like but maybe I could use it for fun. ^^
