Elektra is my all time favorite female character in the Marvel universe, period. She thinks in fragments and kills as if breathing. Her perception of life is that it is something to be dealt with, nothing more. She is driven by her iron will and haunted by memories of her murdered father...
This is my costume idea for a more mature Elektra in the ultimate Marvel universe. Currently, the Elektra in the Ultimate Marvel universe is only a teenager without much combat training. This is her several years down the road and a little less sane. :)
Inspired by her look "Elektra: Assasin" by Frank Miller (Sin City) with the amazing art of Bill Sienkiewicz I updated Elektra's costume to be more practical, as the one seen in the "Ultimate Daredevil & Elektra" 4-part mini-series, without sacrificing her errie mystique.
I repainted the Marvel Select Black Widow and combined it with the lower arms and (super) repainted head of a Shi action figure. I added a few curls, cut off a top knot and resculpted her hand so it would hold a Sai.
