I haven't been customising for almost a year, and it's good to get my hands dirty again. I got inspired when I saw the Toy Fair pictures of DC Club Infinite Earths Poison Ivy, but know there's next to no way I'll be able to obtain this beauty. I also had no appropriate base figure, until I chanced upon a loose DCUC Star Sapphire at the toy flea market.

I cut off the collar, top of her tiara, then sculpted over that and the star below her navel with two-part epoxy putty. I left the bits around the eyes, because it's kind of like how Poison Ivy looked in Batman and Robin. Then I sculpted the lining for the costume, and the twine and leave decoration on her legs (which I'm quite pleased with, even though it's still very shoddy compared to a lot of the work here on the realm). Then paint (which is the worst part of this custom - I can't obtain model paint like Testors or Citadel around here).

Hope you guys like it! Comments and advice welcome. Thanks for lookin'.

Updated with new paint, and the vines around her legs are now twisty ties painted up, so there's some articulation retained.

Second update with new hands (right hand from Identity Crisis Zatanna, left hand from DCUC Harley Quinn) and a vine wrapped around her right arm - taken from the Yamato Batman mini figurines.

Thanks, but I respectfully disagree! The paints I used aren't great and the sculpting isn't my best. It just doesn't stand up to scrutiny. But I'm glad you like it!

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I was working with the contours of the Carol Ferris Star Sapphire suit, and ended up with this.
