Angel and Ape Custom Action Figure
"Who are they? What are they?" Angel and the Ape. 1960's funny comic from DC drawn by Joe Orlando, hilariously revived in the 1980s by Phil Foglio. Sam Simeon is a gorilla passing as human and a cartoonist. Angel O'Day is a judo expert. They're detectives. Angel is some reposed fast-food figure (Megara from Disney's Hercules?) I used paper clip wire to hold Concrete Patch for her pointy hair. Her mod dress is coffee filter paper dipped in white glue laid over a plastic hoop skirt. The dress is copied from a vintage 1960s mod design. No idea why her hair is white. Angel actually never uses a gun, but I figured she needed it to look like a detective. Sam is a TMNT Sgt. Bananas gorilla body and a Dollar Store gorilla head. I had to build his left foot (the one that shows, naturally) from scratch as it wore a shoe. His hair is doll hair patched with white putty. His tie is a picture of a real vintage tie, printed on a color printer, then cut and rolled to size. He holds a paint brush to show he's mostly a cartoonist and only a part-time detective. Since he's secretly sweet on Angel, she gets her way every time. "Oh, Sam, don't you trust me?" Phil Foglio retro-fit that Angel and Dumb Bunny of the Inferior 5 are sisters, so they're part of my I5 set to come.
