Alrighty where to start, this is my second custom and I decided to go with a less common take on squirrel girl. I found some really nice images of this costume where she looks almost pinup style.
legends mystique + lotsa sculpting
all of the fur and hair not including the tail were done with aves apoxie.
The tail required a lot of creativity to get the right look and size without the weight,
after trying about 15 different materials and getting nowhere, I thought to myself what if i used that green foamy stuff they use for like floral arrangements!?? so i picked some up from my local craft store and started carving. Once i had the right look I added about ten coats of mod podge to stiffen up the soft foam and it worked!!
I added the arm from an old starwars figure into the tail and mounted her on the figure and to my delight she completely kept her balance:)
the tail rotates and pivots and i also added 4 more points of articulation into the forearms and shins for a total of 33 points of articulation.
Paints like usual are a mix of citidel and tamiya's and the pouches are fodder.
Comments and criticism would be great .
On to the next :)
