To go along with my Arkham Batman from a few weeks back, I started the Harley. I love the way she looks in the game--very cool. I searched for a base figure and my pal in Chicago had sent me the 50's lois, in her green supersuit. Not an easy custom to see in THAT figure, but I was feeling adventurous.
First, I cut off the hair with an X-ACTO. Next, I trimmed off the skirt, which I discovered actually served as a large part of her torso that I would have to replace. I took Aves and sculpted in her torso, increased her chest size, and then made the shirt, corset vest, and her lower tummy. I sculpted her upper shirt sleeves and the shirt collar, as well as her new hair, pigtails, and the nurses cap. I added the lines of her belly and the belly button, and took a bit of Aves and gave her more of a butt.
Next I sculpted her boots and added height by adding a thick sole and raised the tops to her mid thigh. I used white cloth for her skirts, folding and glueing for a somewhat pleated effect, and splattering some dirty red for bloodstains. Her belt and throat collar is cut from Bizzaro's cape and painted. The enitre figure is painted with Tamiya colors.
I think she looks bad-a$$--please let me know what YOU think. Thanks.
