Any hopes of attaching a little tube to her hat so she can "rain"? Heheh

Well I'm feeling a little stupid for not noticing this before, Hina was the inspiration for the WDW Polynesian Village Resort mug:

Yep! Originally she had a smaller hat - no wide brim - and looked even more like the mug. The large Hina on the grounds of the Polynesian and the small resin figures match her original configuration. Only the Hina at the DL ETR has the wide hat, which I prefer.

I found an old photo showing the water spraying out from the narrow hat at an angle, whereas with the wide-brimmed hat the water drops straight down. I'm guessing the hat change was for keeping the water under control. But as I said, I like the look of it more anyway.

Here she is all together:



I just finished attaching her feet to the (weighted) base, so she's drying again. One more bit of sanding, then finally paint!

Here's Hina Kaluaa - 99% done. (The remaining 1% needs to wait until further... seasonal materials are acquired.)



Due to her hat, she photographs poorly except in bright ambient daylight. I'll try and post a photo tomorrow of Hina with her friends.

My name is Maui. Natives call me the mighty one.
I tame the playful sun, and gave my people time.
Now they set their clocks by mine,
for I am tropic standard time


Whelp, this one took a little longer for various reasons. Here we go...

Cardboard skeleton:


Papier mache starts to go on. After this was taken I actually redid the head since the shape wasn't working.


Drying, along with his playful little friend.


Then a bunch of time passes, and:


With the gang:


No, he's not a functional fountain. Maui is, however, a functional clock! You can see about five minutes passed between those photos. One of the time consuming parts of the build was that I didn't decide to make him a clock until after the build was complete, so I needed to hollow him out.

I'm not thrilled with the colors - the red and yellow both need to be a little more orange. I wish I could color-match Pele! Maui's paint job is also far less forgiving (the little blue face guy and playful sun)

These are awesome! I hope to see more. It is very tricky copying the original statues and doing them justice. And you nailed it. I hope there is a Tangoroa Ru coming one day to keep Hina company.
