Victor Zsasz (DC Universe) Custom Action Figure
I'm missing a Mr Zsasz from my Batman Rogues Gallery, and decided to try my hand at making one - the prospect of having to carve all those scars was what put me off the idea at first. Well, I've cheated a little and painted the scars on instead, first in black and then in red to give a bit of an illusion that they're raised. The base figure was a DCUC Kamandi, whose belt I'd earlier ripped out for a Cassandra Cain Batgirl custom. I filled in the gap with epoxy putty, and swapped the head out for a Col. Quaritch head from the Avatar Movie Masters line(that I had earlier used as a Ra's Al Ghul head) with sculpted and painted hair and eyebrows, as well as a bit of a black wash around the eyes. I used some sculpt to make his neck a little larger as it was too thin before. All the skin then needed a repaint too, before the scars could go on. I repainted the pants orange so they look like they were once part of a prison jumpsuit - it was really difficult getting the orange paint on. Zsasz's knife was a combat knife accessory from a Toys R Us military figure pack (those figures are great for their accessories), with some painted-on blood for added effect. Thanks for looking!
UPDATE: My friend suggested that I go over the custom with some shading to bring out the scars a little more, a la 3bcustoms (who did a great 3.75 inch scale Zsasz). Hopefully I didn't go overboard with the black wash, and it looks better now.
