You know how I said I was customizing all my companions? And how I wouldn’t ONLY IF the kits were so disgusting that I couldn’t stomach it? That happened.
Apparently, it was too much to ask to get rid of the mustache on Doc.
(Insert inappropriate joke about "mustache rides" here)
Apparently he has to have facial hair of some disgusting sort on most of the customization kits. Unfortunately, the previews are small. Also unfortunately, I was throwing up on my mouth for some of them.
Doc Customization 2. Facial hair not improved
Doc Customization 3. Less hairy.
Doc Customization 4. I hated this hair on Corso. This hair + mustache + mutton chops = epic fail. Also, I have no clue why I sometimes get "black eyes" on small previews or on the character portraits. Pretend those aren't there.
Doc Customization 5. This facial hair looks like 2 leeches that got lost.
Doc Customization 6. You cannot appreciate the facial hair until you see it from the side.
Doc Customization 7. Same facial hair, from what I can tell. In gray...
I selected the least-hairy of the bunch on principle, just to have a kit. I put it on and just… no. Total no.
So he looks a little like House, but... no. Just no.
So I’ve got default Doc now. I’ll live with the mustache.
Next up is Lord Scourge who looks fine to begin with.
Yes, I know my toon is short, this is the best I could do.
However, he has these doodads on his little face-tentacles, and when he talks the doodads move around and stretch his tentacles and I cannot stop staring.
The customization kit I picked fixes this distraction and gives him awesome lip rings to boot!
Scourge Customization 2
I mean, could he look badasser? Is that even possible?
But the rest of the kits weren’t godawful. Well some were…
Scourge Customization 1. Again, my stupid computer/graphics card/whatever giving black eyes.
Scourge Customization 2 (The one I picked)
Scourge Customization 3
Scourge Customization 4. All is looking promising until you turn to the side and see.. the weird ponytail.
Scourge Customization 5. The Mohawk. I was afraid he'd be so appalled by the indignity of this haircut that he might leap out of my computer monitor and slice off my head.
