So I built this moc as an entry to a couple of moc contests being held on Instagram right now but I wanted to share her here as well. I'm really satisfied with how this moc turned out because there were a lot of new things I wanted to try with this moc, like using system more extensively and building hair. But I want all of your guys opinions on how you really feel about this moc
Edit: in actuality, this moc was made as a sort of social commentary/experiment. The moc contests just conveniently happened to be going on at the same time. I've seen far too many mocs, some of which are really good, become instantly disregarded for being what some people consider "oversexualized." Moccing is a form of art, a form of free expression, and for people to quickly disregard a moc simply because it's oversexualized, is to completely ignore the effort a builder puts into their mocs. As well, since moccing is a form of art, nobody should have the right to tell anybody how to do their art. So I oversexualized this moc on purpose and gave it a Rahkshi head to test whether or not people can see past those features and understand the effort that I put into this moc. Again, this is the first time I have used system this extensively, and I think I did a really good job of making some organic looking thighs with the posable buttcheeks, but I don't think many people will notice that because they're too busy hating on the moc for being oversexualized. This is also my first attempt at making Lego hair and I think it turned out really good but I don't think many people care since the hair is on a Rahkshi head anyways. Each and every comment that can't see past the "generic oversexualized female moc with Rahkshi head" further proves my point, and I thank you all for participating in this social experiment.
I haven't thought about how she plays into my storyline (http://board.ttvchannel.com/t/my-bionicle-storyline/35530) yet, but I have another moc, Xhelos (http://board.ttvchannel.com/t/xhelos-the-twilight-knight/35626), who I wanted to say was a To-Kuta from a parallel universe. Maybe in this universe, The Shadowed one decided to only create To-Kuta that used a combination of Light and Shadow as he viewed those as the most powerful elements. Vendetta could possibly be the Eyrik equivalent in Xhelos's universe, since Eyrik, the first To-Kuta from the prime universe, and her use the same weapon. Just a rough idea though
Edit #2: This is the most replies I've ever gotten on a moc. I wish my last post garnered this many replies, considering how hard I worked on that guy . Anyways, glad this moc inspired such strong feelings inside of you all that you took your time to comment on this post. Thank you
