This figure is based on a fellows girlfriend in her Medieval Faire garb. Using multiple photo references, I did a hybrid of her past costumes (black sleeves/black leather corset/red lace), and crafted a few custom accessories to go with her.
To ensure the figure could stand properly without foot pegs, I installed stacks of rare-earth magnets in the boots, and inside the stand, then sculpted over that, and sculpted the rock.
The whole process took quite some time, but I was pleased with the final results. I may be crafting a figure of the boyfriend to accompany this figure sometime next year. :)

NECA Gears of War figure - boot buckles
Figure's base stand - belonged originally to a Buffy figure, but was sculpted over/repainted.
After sanding down the face to remove the 3D printing grain, I painted over thin layers of Tamiya acrylics, then did the detailing on the eyes/eyebrows/mole, etc. using fine tipped markers, then very small brushes.
After I finished all the sculpting, I painted all the pieces separately in both Vallejo and Tamiya acrylics. Afterward, I sealed everything (solid pieces/rub prone areas with liquid type krazy glue, plus) Matte finish Vallejo varnish. The boots and other leather pieces received Glossy Citadel varnish.
The very last piece to be attached was the chain belt, which the dagger and money pouch hang from.
