Here's something a little different to mix it up, custom no.54, Akira from Project Justice/Rival Schools! I had the idea for this custom when I was out and my fiancee noticed the (at the time) new Liz Sherman figure from the Hellboy 2 line; she thought the figure was awesome, so we picked it up. Later that day, we went to the dollar store and found a Suzuki motorcycle...and it hit me...Akira! At the time, I had just started customizing (she's been on the table for quite some time) and was looking to make any Capcom character I could, so here's the breakdown of how she came to be:
Head: Battlestar Galactica helmet, cut, sanded, and filled
Body: Hellboy 2 Liz Sherman
Forearms and Hands: Forearms are scratch built, gloves are from Capcom Queens Akira
Biker Suit and Pads: Pads are from CQ Akira (shoulder pads are from a mace I cut in half), strapping, buttons and jacket front are all fodder and sculpt.
I don't know if I'll end up doing any more Project Justice/Rival Schools figures, but perhaps when I am done with some of the sets I have on the go right know, I'll re-visit this franchise and pay it the homage it deserves.
Hope you all like her as I do, I'll keep trying to get better and be back soon with more.
