The Marvel Legends figure of Mystique was in my opinion, awful. When I bought it for first time, I was appalled with the figure. I kept the figure as it was for a long time, but now has come the moment of custom enhancement :) . First, I searched for a image that match what I had in mind, having found it, I cut the hands, extracted the hair, cut the skirt, I sanded the head, and dremeled the torso. I made a new skirt out of a Pirates of the Caribbean figure. Then it was all sculpting, I had to nearly cover all the figure.
Then the paint scheme; I had to apply 5 coats of white paint to achieve a even and shiny look. Fortunately the blue was much easier and with one coat was enough. Hope you like it, this is really the way it should be.
