Here's my first foray into the world of Deadpool customs, based on his first appearance in New Mutants #98, way back in 1991. I started with a DCUC Orion. I cut off the lower legs, about mid calf, and replaced them with the lower legs and feet of a Marvel Legends Angel. I think shape-wise the Angel feet look more like Liefeld's artwork than the standard DCUC feet. They're a little smaller than the DC feet, but not so small that they look outrageous on the figure. I think its a good compromise between trying to match Liefeld's tiny feet and having something that looks good on the figure. The head is a DCUC Dr Impossible head with the mask sculpted. The rest of the costume details (belt, pouches, straps) are sculpted. The guns are all from dollar store figures, which I painted silver. The knife is a combination of a knife handle from a dollar store ninja, and the blade from a LCBH Clownface's knife. The swords and sheaths are from an ML series 4 Elektra. I made the handles larger by first making a mold of a DCUC Hawkman sword handle. Then after pouring resin in the mold, I placed the Elektra sword handles in the mold. The cast Hawkman handles formed around the Elektra sword handles. Thanks for looking!

The legs should be twice as long, and he really shouldn't have any feet. But other than that, I'd say you nailed it!
