Well, where to begin? This was in amongst some figures I bought for fodder and was missing a lower leg and so sat unused for a while. I wanted to make either Aurra Sing, Assaj Ventress and not Aayla Secura, until I thought the costume and face looked a bit like the Jedi Master. The face is not as pretty as the actress who portrayed Secura but I set about chopping off the hair, resculpting the forehead and adding the Lekku (or dangly bits) using greenstuff. The bikini on the base figure was far too revealing for a jedi master so I layered some pantyhose nylon over and used superglue to fix (caution, do this outside as it will give off noxious fumes). I still had an issue with the lower legs. I had a Gandalf figure in bits waiting to be customised and thought, 'those boots could be useful'. So I boil n popped them off and added them, hinge and all to the aayla figure. She does have massive feet and will only stand in certain poses before looking odd, but as she is based, what the heck! The headgear was made using leather and cording and the belt from cord and bits of prince of persia fodder. All was painted in GW and Vallejo and the bas was made from plywood, mdf, sand and fish tank plants.
The Lightsaber had a piece of (I now know is cracked!!!)clear rod attached to a lightsaber missile from some transformer toy.
All in all this has to be my most ambitious custom to date. The likeness is ok but is the best I could achieve and the colour is off but I best I could match. Hope you like and more SW 7 inches coming soon!
