Black Widow Custom Action Figure
Sick of looking at the scary cross-dresser we were given in place of the real Black Widow, I decided to craft my own, this time in her 1980's costume.
Natasha started life as a Skrullectra body. One of my early experiments in dyeing plastic, I popped her in while the water was too hot and she suffered some bubbling across her abdomen. I scraped that mess away, filled in the holes with Green Stuff and resanded to get the surface nice and smooth. Her head is Maria Hill, with rescuplted hair. Tried to go for that feathered '80's look but it came out a little flat. Created the collar of her body suit with a piece of electrical tape; folded over and glued into place, it's surprisingly solid. Painted her with Citadel colors, sealed her with Testors Semi-Gloss coat. Her wrist-blasters came out a little large- the original metal tubes I was using proved too thick and, also, gluing straight cylinders onto a tapered wrist proved trickier than I thought. I discarded the metal pieces and used sections of cotton swab. in the end these too look overly-large but the glue proved more tenacious the second time around, so attached they stay.
