Being a fan of the Dark Tower series, I had this guy on my to do list for a while now and this contest gave me an excuse to stop being lazy. I was inspired by Glorbes' work in mixed materials and tried to re-create that look. I made a full costume out of fabric and leather and was still able to retain articulation.

Head and Belt: Mcf Toys 'Billy the Kid'
Torso: Quicksilver
Forearms: Jigsaw
Boots: Bullseye
Misc Revolvers

I used my knowledge of the Dark Tower universe and also took some 'artistic' liberties with his look. While unmistakably Western, the Dark Tower universe is not an exact copy of ours, it's more like a shadow of our world that is quickly fading with the sunlight. Therefore; his 'western' look wouldn't be exactly the same as our 1800's western look but close enough to be recognizable. In my opinion anyway. So enjoy and remember.....

.........the Dark Tower awaits.

Well...............I was under the assumption that this was the TALES OF THE WEST contest but I was mistaken and apparently it was the 'WHO CAN PAINT THE WHITEST' contest Anyway, second isn't that bad so thanks for all the comments and votes guys.
....................I even waited like three contests to enter another one so I didn't win too much(arrogant as that may be ^_^). Imagine my surprise.

I that you, Glorbes? Nobody else works w/the fabrics quite like you(or maybe a new Glorbes-like customizer has arisen?) Either way that custom is the BOMB!
