Here we go!

I really wanted an Oracle. Problem is, DC Direct's costs a ton and isn't that nice of a figure. It is more of a 'girl in wheelchair' toy, rather a reflection of the teched-out hacker girl that Oracle is/was. I wanted something more dramatic.

I started with a Professor X Wheelchair. Problem is, it looks like a toilet with wheels. I chopped and cut and broke the wheelchair down, then reassembled it like a more traditional wheelchair. The small wheels are now up front, etc. I used cut up gift cards to create new panels and parts on the chair, like the monitors, laptop, feet rests, lower base, seats, etc. It's a true Frankenstein's creation and took way more time to make than the figure herself.

The figure is mostly a Buffy Faith figure. Problem is, that figure is gangly and the articulation ruins it. I used the arms from an older Faith figure. I also cut the legs up and glued them in place, before sculpting over the joints(she doesn't need leg articulation). The head is from Poison Ivy, with Faith's hair plug. The scarf is sculpted

I created custom screens for her computers and such. They're slide-labels. I wish I could post hi-res images of them...

Check out my other customs for her huge Bat-Computer workstation =)

I always love seeing Oracle customs, and this one is amazing! I really like how you rejigged Professor X's wheelchair, it really fits the Oracle character better now. Which Poison Ivy figure did you get the head from?

Hey Rogue! Thanks for the kind words.

I ran into you at Dallas Comic Con a few years ago, the last year it was still in Richardson. Do you remember me? I brought up figure realm and some stuff I made...
Rogue - Tuesday, October 2, 2012
Oh yeah I remember, but that was a while back. I also met a few others in the past few years they just look at my bratz and ask if I'm Rogue from the realm site.
