Something that matches the purple/pink of the inside of its mouth would be ideal, but I don't know if Sleipnir can support fades, and I'm bad at thinking of pretty solid and marble ideas. :'V

Any ideas?

The first thing that came to mind was Peridot, but that would be going with the wings and not the belly scales.

Maybe the blue/white from Permafrost/'Echo's Signature' for the base? But swap out the white for Diamond and get some dazzle in there lol. I think Sangria is a good match for the pink/purple mouth color :) Do that as a reverse split marble and I think that would be pretty! Blue/white base with gold dazzle, pink shaft.

Anyone know if BD still does guided surprise me's?

Like...you give them a prompt and they run with it (possibly), like "bright colors"/sunset/etc?

Out of curiosity: CS told me that they "cannot control the amount of either colour in a marble" (when I asked about a turquoise with more gold than blue, as I've seen some that only had very very little gold), but they didn't explain why --- Does anyone have any idea why that would be? I can't possibly imagine a technical reason behind that, but then again, hell do I know about pouring!

@Pheliva I'd love to know that too! I hadn't heard about guided surprises, but I've always wondered whether they honour wishes in a surprise me... Like if I were to order a little vibe, which only exists in surprise me, whether I could send 'em a ticket "Anything but pink pls" or smthn like that... Also, a sunset themed toy sounds really pretty!

For the pour questions...I think its just a BD thing. It seems like their marbles all have to have even amounts in them.

I asked for a Stan in "bright and obnoxious" colors and got it in a split actually (when they got discontinued) in UV blue for the base and UV orange (and green GITD). But this was early last year. Hopefully someone can confirm as yes or no, I might get something in a surprise if they still take prompts

I like the idea of having some prompt because, someone might pull an idea or combination of colors you might not think of. :sniffing:

When I was ordering my XL Vasu based on a screenshot of a character, CS was very helpful in offering suggestions for what colors 'on the menu' would go with the theme. I know it's not the same, but if you really liked a picture of a sunset and asked, I'm sure they could offer some suggestions for how they could match that one picture in particular.

Good news everyone! :laugh:

Pretzal can be casted in Janine's natural. They gave the stock answer 'But the pink maybe thicker than the blue'. But good to know pretzal could potentially support drips or at least Janine's natural.

I'm thinking about changing the Bd Gold in my ordered Blaze to the 'pearlescent orange in Citrine'. It just looks stunning.

I've consulted with Customer Service and we've traded sample pics back & forth, trying to decide on a color. (I said "I hope I'm not driving you crazy!" and they told me "Not at all, this is important"). Maybe better than a guided surprise would be to get someone like Elise to help you pick something specific, with your starting guidelines? IMO, the more info you can provide, and the less of a surprise it is, the better the odds are that you'll be happy with the results. (I don't believe in the Surprise Me concept, for my own choices). I was able to float my ideas past Elise and ask "what do you think?" and get guidance that way. Lets face it. there's already a little bit of a surprise involved, even when you pick out an exact color scheme, because it's a liquid medium and there are so many variables. Fades and marbles being prime examples. You're not certain about exactly how it will look, even when making an ordinary custom order.

Sorry if I don't understand the fun of "surprise me's" but I've seen too many solid color toys in the surprise me thread. In my ideal scenario, Surprise Me would mean "go wild" but I don't know if they consistently get that adventurous.

I just received a toy with the green/gold from Peridot and it's a gorgeous color, and looks like a good match for the wings, shoulders and arms in your first pic.

Thanks for the suggestion! I actually think I might go with Peridot (or the bluish-green from Peridot) for the base now. I completely forgot about that colour, but it is gorgeous and seems like it could work well!

Here's my Xar which just came in. It's the green from Peridot for the shaft, and Giger Black for the base (a greenish black, slightly metallic). Peridot green is gorgeous, the color changes slightly depending on how the light hits it, bringing out the golden sheen. Almost like sharkskin fabric, or silk (a slight two-tone effect)

Pretty.

I wish I held out for a good looking Xar instead of the ectoplasm that mines in. GITD isn't really a big thing for me. But it was a flop and during a time when they dropped very few xls. Still love the toy.

-nods to myself-

I think my next toy will be a mini firm suction-cupped Xar, but I have no idea what colors I want. The base will probably either be in Uber Diamond or Night Sky Black, but I don't know which.

Have you considered a white shaft, maybe with a metallic or even Pearlescent sheen to it? I think that pairs wonderfully with a dark base!
