Roberto da Costa is a mutant from Brazil. He joined the New Mutants at a young age, and has been affiliated with many other teams since then, including X-Force and the Hellfire Club.
I bought Ultimate Nightcrawler with the intention of turning it into Sunspot a LONG time ago, but couldn't get past the planning stages. I recently found the inspiration to do it. The arms are from Bullseye, and the feet from Wolverine. The chest 'X' emblem is from a Wolverine accessory. Parts of the costume were made from Omega Red's harness and and Bullseye's belt. The kneepads are from Goliath's belt. I did a lot of work on the head, replacing the ears, and adding the upper teeth. The 'sunspots' around the head were made from ball-headed pins, along with a ball-on-nylon-wire contraption I stumbled across at a stationary store. Thanks for looking, feel free to comment, and Make Mine Marvel (Legends)!
take care,
Chris

Great custom! I haven't read anything with sunspot in a few years but shouldn't his spots be yellow?

NICE!! Mr. Dacosta has never looked so good!! This costume and the red/blue X-Force one for him are some of my favorites! Great job!!

Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, the sunspots were a challenge. While they didn't work out as well as I had hoped, they were better than my previous ideas. I was thinking of putting a piece of see-through clamshell with hand-drawn dots behind the figure!
