Greetings.

This is my gallery of customizations. I try to bring out the best in each pet. As for the Chia, I thought it was a good idea at the time.

These works are mostly listed in the order that I made them. (Any modifications are minimal, and were made to be easy on the visitor's eyes.) I was new to customization when this started, so this also serves as a history of my experimentations.

I've left the link to their customizations (except for the early ones). Feel free to send me any adjustments you make, I would love to see them :)

For the large image version click here.

Maid Koi


My first customization! I liked the wig, which led to the black and white.

Autumn Korbat


Ever a fan of Islandish things, I started with the Island korbat, leading to a warm coloured theme.

iCybunny



I liked the dress. I think hoods suit cybunnies well.

Scarlet Shoyru



I liked the dress, so red/black theme.

Wealthy Meerca Temple Bandit



Another thing I try to do is keep the 'features' of the species. Here, I wanted to preserve that ballish feel of the Meerca. I had also been watching the anime called Magi, so you may note a Lost Desert theme a few more times.
__________________________________________

Regal Desert Eyrie



I like the regal look of the Eyrie already, so I didn't want to cover it all up with clothing. Aaand Lost Desert theme.

_________________________________________

Mystic Grarrl



I felt so satisfied with that Regal Eyrie, I wanted to try make a beauty out of a blob. Enter the Grarrl! The more hideous I find the pet, the more clothing it will have, I think. Beauty is the top priority here.
____________________________________________

Wandering Ixi



This one is actually inspired from a customization I stumbled upon on an unmentionable site.
____________________________________________

Blumaroo Huntress



This was starting out green, then that white wig just suited so well for some reason. To me, it felt like a bold more to have that wig.
___________________________________________

Cold Magician



I think this Kiko is an ugly survivor. I'm not a fan of this one.
___________________________________________

Brink of Pink



Again, that gold frame felt like a bold move, but it just seemed right.
___________________________________________

Maractite Runes



This one, I actually started with the foreground item. I think if it wasn't there already, it wouldn't have made it in the final stage.
___________________________________________

Blushing Gnorbu



I had trouble with the beard here. Wigs don't blend into Gnorbu beards well at all. Can you guess what the paint brush colour of this Gnorbu is? The dress gave the theme here.
___________________________________________

Morning Visitor



I was too tired at the time to hassle with frames. This is a very simple customization, which is not a bad thing, I guess.
___________________________________________

Sailor Moon



This is the only customization (maybe ever) where beauty was not the priority. I happened to attach the wig and wondered how close to Sailor Moon I could get.
___________________________________________

Gypssi



This one was made after the Acara, but I felt it clashed so I moved it back here. I quite like this one. I feel I preserved the hissi shape and it looks nice overall.
___________________________________________

Ice Resident



This is the one where I realized that having a foreground wasn't necessary. I don't think Kougras are ugly at all, but for some reason I ended up covering this one a lot.
___________________________________________

Buzzness (Wow, I made a buzz actually look good.)



Oh boy, this buzz. I started with the eyes, but pupils on a Buzz looks terrifying. The wig cemented a Shenkuu Highness feel for this one. You might wonder how this wig represents Shenkuu to me, and to that I say google 'Magi' and 'Kougyoku'.
___________________________________________

Fire Poogle



I tried to give some less beautiful colours attention, hence the fire. I think this one made me realise that diversity is not what I'm looking for here.
___________________________________________

Sakura Wocky



Those sakuras on the collar triggered this one. This one didn't turn out as great as I thought it would. Everything matched, but that didn't necessarily mean it would look the best.
___________________________________________

Royal Acara on a Walk



This image doesn't do this Acara justice. Please check out this customization at the actual site. The wig came later. I felt that the purple was too bright a colour for the dress, but the shaped just fit so well I couldn't bear to not use it.
___________________________________________

Pteri Majesty



Usually, I try to give these pets a setting, a small tiny slice of life in their backgrounds, but for this one it seemed more important to get the colour right. Hence the plain background. This pteri is definitely royal but I don't know much more about him than that.
___________________________________________

Green thumb Techo



This one cemented the idea that diversity is not what I'm looking for. I guess I was still clinging on to some belief that I should experiment with non beautiful colours and ideas. I guess this is a chief kinda guy but he's not a character that I know very well.
___________________________________________

Mistress Xweetok



This one gives me butterflies when I look at it. I even reused the background of my first Koi, and hopefully the objects disguised it. I honestly feel I achieved true beauty in this one.
___________________________________________

Judal Scheme Ogrin



This is another one that is best viewed at the actual site. I'm not sure how kind this Ogrin is. Not completely evil but he or she is definitely not that concerned for your well being. As for what I mean by 'Judal scheme', again, google 'Magi judal'.
___________________________________________

Stylish Neovian



This one has the most character so far, I think. Her environment is dark, but her dress choice is bright and innocent looking. She herself is not innocent. It is a rebellious choice of hers.
___________________________________________

Sunni



I feel I outdid my own expectations for this uni. He looks pretty and powerful. What's more, I used gold, a colour I did not expect much of. I'm very pleased with this one.
___________________________________________

Evil Elephante (The only saving grace was to pretty much cover up the whole thing.)



This character is actually and truly evil. My fustrations in making this customization have turned her personality bitter and sour.
___________________________________________

Empress Moehog (Omg, made a Moehog look good.)



I really like how this one turned out. I started with the shirt/dress, and the hair cemented an Empress theme. She's out on a walk.
___________________________________________

Mage Bruce (This was a struggle, too. Though, tbh, I like making ugly species look good. For pretty species like unis and draiks, I feel more pressure to make them look their best.)



That veil didn't necessarily fit the scheme, but it was subtle and essential enough to stay.
___________________________________________

Velvet Nimmo



The pants and the shirt were the keys to this Nimmo. Until the pants, I truly thought this nimmo was doomed. I tried to go for a 'dashing' look, because beauty was out the -blocked-
___________________________________________

Witch Bori



I started with the huge feet and hands. To be honest, the Christmas Bori looked quite pretty as it was, so I felt that anything I added would detract.
___________________________________________

Ice Cold Tonu



It has a pet Moehog! I started on this Tonu three times and finally settled on blue because of the wig. I feel I can challenge any species now that I've done this Tonu.
___________________________________________

Palace Yurble



There were so many possible shirts/dresses/trousers for this one. I'm really happy with this one.
___________________________________________

Farm Tuskaninny



I'd been wanting to use this wig for a while, and I found that fringes really suit tuskaninnies. I didn't think I would use a skirt for her because I usually like keeping the outline of these Neopets, but I thought this one suited. This one is a lot plainer than my usual.
___________________________________________

Stylish Aisha



There were soo many wigs that suited my visions for this Aisha. Picking the wig and the pants was the hardest part. I'd definitely like to do an Aisha again.
___________________________________________

White Usul



Gah! No (good) white contacts! I went for a fluffy white look here. I found it fascinating that you can mix and match the ribbons on usuls.
___________________________________________

Ice Draik



Draiks are the boss battle of customizations, I swear. Everything fits well, but none of them particularly stand out from each other. That applies to wigs, shirts, anything. In the end, I discovered this layered dress combo, as well as the wig was somewhat interesting.
___________________________________________

Pretty Evil Jetsam



Woo, finally got to use this background! I had been eyeing it but could never use it. Making a non feminine Neopet was very difficult (again). My eyes automatically glaze over none feminine items. The hood type thing was the birth of this customization.
___________________________________________

Cute Jelly Jubjub



For some reason, the jelly jubjub looks cuter than the rest. Which meant I had to match this customization to red.
___________________________________________

Snow Queen Kau



PLEASE LOOK AT THE ORIGINAL. Something atrocious has happened to this Kau in the photo processing stage. Anyway, didn't think I could get a Kau to look good! I liked the wig. I wish there could have been better gloves though.
___________________________________________

Snow Zafara



I'm liking this ice frame... it seems to look different for any background I use it on. The eyes were the catch for this zafara. They look so sparkly. I had wanted to use this wig for a while too.
___________________________________________

Faerie Quiggle



So I'm choosing which colour quiggle I want to start with, and all I'm seeing is a sea of 0_0 quiggle eyes. There is no wig that will fit these eyes. Note the burning castle in the top left. This quiggle is the real reason behind the fall of Faerieland - they weren't falling, they were escaping. From this.
___________________________________________

Kacheek Painting



This turned out so different and so good compared to what I initially started out for. I was daunted by the Kacheek because it's such a bland pet (sorry Kacheek fans) that practically anything fits. (I suppose like the Draik.) The deciding point to go the brown route was the wig. This is the only wig that suited my visions.
___________________________________________

Mage Kyrii



There was a set of mage kyrii clothing by tnt but it didn't suit my tastes. I liked the wig for this one. Then the dress gave it a mage like impression to me, so that's how I got this one. I quite like how it turned out character-wise, maybe not so much beauty-wise.
___________________________________________

Pastel Skeith



I couldn't get rid of the chub on this one. I liked the dress so I ended up with a pastel-ly kinda look. There is no pastel skeith, so royal girl colour it is.
___________________________________________

Starry Mynci



I liked the dress. The rest followed.
___________________________________________

White Krawk



This wig looks pretty good on this krawk. And only one eye showing meant that I could use this pirate eye.
___________________________________________

Pink Lupe



I started with the sponge and stuck to the sponge! Please look at the original though because that cloak is supposed to be pink.
___________________________________________

Woodlands Grundo



Started with speckled. Since the mynci, I've realised that toning down these customizations is not such a bad idea. lol wait, just as I was closing the page, I wondered what would happen if I changed it to woodlands. Looks more busy now, but that's what this one is now.
___________________________________________

Process of Elimination Vandagyre



Turns out there's not a lot of options with Vandagyres yet.
___________________________________________

Dark Elegant Lutari



I liked how the crown looked. So the rest followed. I'm liking kuroshtsuji now so that may be affecting my customisations.
___________________________________________

Stealth Gelert



The stealth gelert was released a few weeks ago, and I really liked that hair.
___________________________________________

Fancy Peophin



I'm not so interested in customising my own species. So here's a giant window that I would otherwise never even dream of using on a pet.
___________________________________________

Royal Ruki



My last one! I love customising Rukis. Everything looks good like the draik and kacheek, but on top of that it looks brilliant, due to the figure of the bug, I think. I started with royal, then fell in love with the dress. This is on the flashy side and I like it a lot. Also, I picked up Nuqq from the pound largely due to its Ruki status.
___________________________________________

Here's a link back!

___________________________________________

Concluding last words:
Overall, I'm satisfied with this first round of customisations. I say first round because I would definitely like to challenge some of them again, either because I'm not completely happy with the first one, or because that pet offers so many customisation possibilities.
