This was a fairly simple custom to do. Had a spare copperhead figure and when I dropped it in the sink, an idea popped in my head to make the King of the seven seas, Arthur Curry=Aquaman. I debated rigorously about the head choice but in the end I went with my gut and kept the Magneto head for this Aquaman custom.
Recipe is as follows...
"Dyed" Magneto's hair blond. Repainted his face and neck a paler skin tone. (If he spends so much time underwater he probably does not have tan.) Left the Copperhead torso untouched. Added some fins on his gloves and repainted those.
Belt is on OMAC belt painted gold and an "A" logo from a DC Direct Aquaman figure.
Lower legs and crotch are from the DCUC Ultraman figure. This allowed for the seamless pants look Aquaman has, no boot cuff required.
Replaced the feet with the green Starman feet to help eliminated paint rub.
Repainted the entire lower body and added dorsal fins on the back of his leg calves.
I am happy to finally have an Aquaman in my collection.
