Welcome to this week's exciting episode of "Why won't the site work?" -_- Thanks to everybody for continued patience.
Pirates of the Caribbean was pretty much a smash hit as soon as it entered the box office, which caught me somewhat off guard since most Disney products are considered somewhat taboo. I guess people just ignored the fact that it was a Disney film since it wasn't a bunch of animated chipmunks, or anything equally inane like that. But hey -- Jack Sparrow. 'Nuff said, right?
Anyway, when I first saw this skin I couldn't figure out for the life of me who Tia Dalma was. This is probably because I wasn't paying attention (and/or did not care) when her name was first revealed. Or any other time it was spoken. To me she's just the crazy-looking swamp witch. Neat character... I guess. I just thought she was kinda weird. This skin is meant to be her, and it was skinned over the Leela model.
Biggest problem with this is that Leela is Caucasian and Tia Dalma is, well, not. And yes, it does make a difference, especially in facial structure. As a result, the face doesn't (and can't) look quite right. I also don't think the outfit is all that spot on, but I haven't seen the third film yet so perhaps she has a different outfit. All you fans can answer that for yourself, and preferably not reveal spoilers... I'd like to see it at some point and actually be surprised. :p
For a skin, it's quite decent. For a good replica I question its accuracy, but I wouldn't say it's not worth picking up. Although the male Jaden filler sounds (to replace the ones that weren't included) kind of bum me out a little. Definitely some room here for an updated version two.
