I thought I'd start off my custom submissions here with the last figure that I finished before my current crop that I'm working on or just completed. This guy was done in September 2011, after which I took a break from customizing until now. His costume details were a pain!

I've heard great things about you, dude! It's good to have you at the Realm.
This custom is exquisite!
I just have to ask...how did you sculpt/create those cross-stitched pants? They're amazing!!

I cut up strips of PVC tape, lay them down in that pattern, then sealed the ends over with superglue. The pattern actually helps the individual strips of tape stay put because the bottom layers are held down by the top layers, and being that each strip on top has others very close by, none of them stand above the surface the way that a single strip would. Because of that the top layers act more like a large surface rather than a single strip that can be more easily knocked askew.

Thank you so much, bud. I truly appreciate the time taken to explain the process. GENIUS STUFF!
It adds an incredible layer of texture unlike anything I've ever seen.
It's great to have you onboard. I can't wait to see more of your masterworks.

Bows down to the master of us other humble nerds, the grandpappy NERD is here fellas!!!! Simply amazing and defintely one of the most intricate works of art I have seen with those layered pants you did on this guy! I could only imagine what it took for you to get that so perfect! This is one of those characters that I've always loved and have been afraid to make because I never did feel my current skill could allow me to do it justice! Really good to see you here at the Realm, Sir!!!

Hey GN, I am ecstatic that you joined the realm! As one of my favorite customizers and the inspiration for some of my work this is a real treat for me! Your first submission as with all of your work is amazing! The details are immaculately clean! The legs being so intricate it's mind bending! Too bad this wasn't entered in the contest! You could really rack up some trophies with your talents! Super clean paint apps bro! Can't wait to see more from you on here!
