Doll on Doll Violence I

Since there's a Roman numeral 1 in the title, I'll eventually feature more weapons for 1/3 scale daughters.

If you were to look for 1/3 scale weapons, you might have a hard time finding any. There's a Katana at Volks USA, a few weapons are listed but are out of stock at Volks Japan, and you might be able to find 1/3 scale military rifles at various retailers. I personally feel finding 1/3 scale weapons is difficult, expensive, or both. This led me to consider alternatives.

To the right is a pair of Gundam themed chopsticks I purchased at a Gundam Cafe in Japan. They set me back 1080 yen. At the exchange rate as of this writing, that's about 10 USD. If you want to copy what I did, I realize this is not helpful for those who don't live in Japan or don't have plans to visit. However, my point is to show alternate methods for providing your daughters with the kinds of weapons worthy of their psychopathic tendencies.

I will also use a Gundam Marker for this project.

This is the specific Gundam Marker used for this project. The one in the photo is the pour type. Generally speaking, any gray panel lining marker will do for white plastic. If you don't know which marker to buy, I would recommend the liner type.

Where you can buy markers (Amiami): Pour Type | Liner Type

Right: How it comes from the factory
Left: Touched up with the Gundam Marker

That's all there is to make the Gundam beam saber chopsticks look a lot better than they do coming from the factory. They're now ready to be wielded by any of your daughters outfitted with the appropriate gripping hands.
