I was going to submit another custom and thought "this is the first custom I'm submitting..." and decided to submit this first instead, cause it's not really a custom, it's more of fix, it's what I used to do before I found out about this site, before I read the tutorials, and stuff.
So basically it's a Squall figure, my brothers lost his arm and gunblade, so I added a new arm from a Mask figure, I burned some plastic to melt both parts, in a way there's sort of a plastic mushroom shaped thing inside the body coming from the arm that allows the arm to move, the arm was very burned in the process so I painted some tattoos, with a pen, to disguise, added some tissue to the junctions so it looks like it's the coat sleeve ripped off. You can see that the figure has several paint rubs, because at the time I didn't know there were good paints to paint figure, or how to use them. I melted different parts of weapons to make the sword.
And here you go, my first custom, it was made 7 years ago, in 2001, I have some other fixes from before that but they are even worse. I basically decided to put this here so you can see sort of where I come from, and compare with the other stuff I'll upload so you hopefully can see the evolution.
