They're offering to redo it because it doesn't quite match up with my reference picture. I'm going to take them up on that and try for more green-y blues. It's still super pretty, though.


Out of curiosity what are the specs? :scheming:


Small size soft firmness. :3

Looks great! Isn't the IS colouration supposed to have purple in it, though?

I think she got a custom 3-color marble in the Infinity Star style.

Normally, yes, but I went with custom colors based off a specific picture:

The blues on the toy turned out too blue, not enough green! So I'm going to ask them to redo it since they offered. :)

Ah, I see. It's way better than the time they tried to do something similar for me, with custom colours. I got something that was a flat white, no sparkle or dazzle, and a few stray spots of brown and yellow that didn't even match the colours discussed.

Nope. it was my custom Moko that I got last yea and paid almost 300 AUD for. They sent me the sloppy pour on purpose and saved the gorgeous one for a later sale. I actually bought the nicer one that dropped and sold off the other. They gave me 30 in store credit after a bit of back and forth with CS. Someone else had a similar issue, with being sent a sloppy pour on an expensive custom, and then the pretty one was dropped in adoptions, months later. CS straight up lied to them, too, about pouring an additional, at first, but later admitted it. I believe they got a repour, months after the fact. I got 30 dollars in credit and had to pay another 200 AUD to buy the actual toy I was supposed to have received, out of adoptions. I'm still a little sore over it.

Mother of dragons that's so pretty :bugeyed:! If you don't mind how much was that? I saw a four or so color fade that looked like space on Flint yet it was a ready made toy and I'm very sure they wouldn't do a multi color fade for a custom order.

Yet it looks a bit different than Infinity Star? With more greenish to the blue and no purple..plus it's metallic? Here's the promo picture of Infinity Star I found digging through old sales and my Rogue Infinity Star matches up color wise with the promo picture.

You're quite lucky. I haven't heard anyone getting preview pictures of customs since I first joined. I heard it was common practice years ago. Lately people have just been getting what they get without a picture. Sometimes even being told "it's the nature of silicone" for choppy fades, muddy marbles, etc. Some did get offered repours yet in most cases it was only for a single color except that one Opal or some store credit. Seems to depend on who in CS you get I suppose.

It was $30 extra for the coloration.
They're calling it infinity star but I asked for custom colors based on the inspiration picture and for all of the colors to be shimmery. The colors wound up too blue instead of blue green which they said is due to manufacturing limitations. I do feel lucky they gave me a preview and offered to redo it.
I've been talking with CS a lot and while I've been told "manufacturing limitations" what feels like 100 times, they've been very helpful for me.

Based off the last picture, an orange base with a shaft that fades from teal to sea foam green would look nice.

What are these babes from?

alexandrite green base, maybe a lunar guardian-light-blue-from-the-marble shaft to loose cannon antique gold tip fade? idk about the fade honestly, um.. maybe the gold would need to be brighter? this looked very nice to me when i picked a warmer, brighter gold, but lemme know what you think?

Couple of options for you! Two of these are from using a colour picker on the images, and the first one is based on what makes sense to me to actually be on one of those naga.

I'm starting to wonder how Elden would look in Golden Hoard, maybe even Absolute Zero. Any thoughts?

Also, thinking about a custom Ridley and though I've been poring through all of BD's colours, past and present, I can't think of anything he might look absolutely stunning in, for some reason. I'd love to hear/see other peoples' recommendations.

Personally i think elden suits cool colours better and absolutele zero could potentially look lovely!

As for above comments, i just realised the hex codes are included my bad. Im really digging the orange/ yellow base with the greens though.
As much as i Love the blue to pinkish fade shaft, im worried BD will bugger up that fade since its two colours on nearly the opposite color spectrum

Feh. Elden can't support split colours. I guess I'll go with the pink to purple, custom fade I've been considering.
