Hey!

I'll admit it-- I know nothing about this character, other than she's Canadian and that this apparently isn't her most well-known costume. I found some pics of her on the web and thought she looked liked she'd be fun to make... She sort of was.

Aurora's made from a DCUC Superwoman from the Crime Syndicate box set. I removed the cape and did a lot of minor surface work to get rid of all the excess details and blended the hands of the infamous X3 Jean Grey figure into her forearms. The little mini-straps on the forearms are cut rubber bands. I drilled a small hole in the figure's back to accommodate a ML flight stand, since apparently Aurora flies around a lot. After that I painted the whole figure by hand, including the maple leaf, which... wasn't easy.

While this isn't my favorite custom I've done, it was certainly a good exercise in precision painting, which is good. What do you all think?

P.S. Could it be... I got more than one picture of this to upload! Oh, yeah! Whoever updated the submission form, good on you! You deserve some kind of prize.

Evan, if they knew how old you were when you got started customizing, they wouldn't be so shocked at how good you are and how far you have came along! I always knew you would one day be a killer customizer if you kept at it and didn't quit! Great job and the detailing is perfect, great body and rare costume = WINNING!! SELL IT!

I worked hours once on a Scarlet Spider symbol so I appreciate the time it must have taken you to get that maple leaf precise. Great paint apps; great custom !!!!
