Something Fugly This Way Comes — Zelgadis and Friend!

By way of explanation:  Several of us who regularly swap tales of Doll decided to do a weekend of photoshoots on Den of Angels, around a common theme.  This theme was born from the warped minD of a close friend after we discussed the relative merits of a free wig we each had received — and decided that it was simply “fugly.”  ^_^

Zelgadis Greywords is my doll based on the character of the same name from the anime Slayers. He’s a Lovelyhouse Shin-Ma head atop a Fantasy Doll body, dyed and ornamented with his requisite stones by me.

Zel speaks in Teal.

We find Zelgadis deep in study, trying as usual to find some way to restore his body from the chimera created by his despised ancestor Rezo, the Red Priest.  This pursuit has consumed Zel nearly to the exclusion of anything else, ever since he was “made stronger.”



*sigh* I hate this body. I just hate it. I must be the most hideous creature on the planet.


Yo, Mr. Zel-dude! Why are you feeling so down?


Phear not, Zel-dude. I am Joe, the Leader of the Littles, and I’m here to tell you that you should not be sad! Be of good cheer! It could always be worse!!


You shouldn’t just pop in on people like that… Joe, was it? But… how? How could it be worse?
I’ll show you how, Mr. Zel-dude!


All you have to do is look into this handy Magic Mirror ™ and recite the Magic Words ™! Then you will see what you would look like if it were worse!
*dryly* You are kidding, right? …. *sigh* Ok, then, why not. Tell me the words.


I can’t believe I’m doing this. Ok…

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who’s the fugliest of them all?


WOAH! WOAH!…wait…!! .

And out of the mists of the Magic Mirror ™ appears the image of Zelgadis as he would be if it were even worse.  Or is it the Mirror at all???

You have GOT to be kidding me.


*giggle* Oh Santy-Zel Dude, can I have a pony for Christmas? I’ve been a good little demon…


Ho Ho Flipping Ho.


and a Fugly Omake, just for the occasion! 🙂
