O.K. fellow realmers, here's my version of Mystique. Was going to do a more classic color scheme, but had seen another posting in this scale done in classic white, so here is my modern costumed Mystique. This is my first female character custom.
*SW Tales Dark Woman body
- forearms & lower legs removed (little to no articulation)
*SW Force Unleashed Mariss Brood head
- under neck dreadlock removed & long braid from unknown SW
fig added to back
*SW Bultar Swan forearms
*SW Mara Jade gloved hands
*GI JOE 25th Scarlett lower legs
*SW Jango Fett belt & holsters - skull buckle from Commando Spawn knife sheath
- lower 1/3 cut off & dual Glock .45s from fodder
*GI JOE ROC City Strike SnakeEyes katana sword & MP5 sub-machine
*GI JOE 25th Zartan split blade dagger ( actually split it )
*Benelli M4 super90 12ga. shotgun given to me by coworker - thnx John
*Acrylic & enamel paints
Really wanted to give this Mystique a very European feel, so I posed her w/ a die-cast Ducati Monster. I also wanted to give her skin tone a slightly irridescent sheen, so I drybrushed a light blue metallic enamel over a blue base acrylic. Wasn't sure how the two media would work together, but I'm fairly happy with the entire outcome. Hope you all dig her, Bye, Bye, BL4CK5H33P...
