Beatrix Kiddo "The Bride" Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:447  
Name:Beatrix Kiddo "The Bride"
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Kill Bill
Creator:Will Turner  
Date Added:December 7, 2005
Base Figure:NECA "The Bride" & Prof. X
Height:6.50 inches
This is a much more articulated Beatrix Kiddo from Kill Bill. The original figure had only 4 cut joints, 4 twists and 1 ball joint.

The new Kiddo has 6 cut joints, 5 ball joints, 4 twist joints and double-jointed knees.

Her costume was entirely repainted a brighter yellow and the stripes had to be painted back on. I used stills from the movie to map the blood stains on her costume. I also touched up her face to make it look more feminine, adding darker eyelashes and a brighter lip color.

The Bike she rides in the movie is a repainted 1:12 scale die cast Suzuki model kit (it was the closest I could find to the Yamaha she rode in the film.)

Delayed response and all, but this is one of the best customs I've seen on the site. The blood is amazingly realistic. I can hardly tell this isn't company work. Great improvement on the face, too. Great job.

If you use conventional spray paint on a glossy surface, it will be sticky.
If you use any glossy testors on a glossy surface or if you put it on too thick at first, it will be sticky as well.
One way around this is to either use the testors or spray paint in thin coats, and after letting them dry, putting on another thin coat until the surface is covered evenly.
Another way is to mix testors with acrylic paints (be sure to buy the good kind Liquitex, Golden, Finity or widsor Newton) or just use straight acrylic mixed with water.
Acrylic is not good for "playable" toys, but if you are just going to display it, it's great. The acrylic & water mixture should have the consistancy of elmers glue and not clump up on the brush. Acrylic dries fast, is water soluable (for a few seconds after applying it) but can be scraped off .
Overall, some plastics will always yeild a sticky paint job, but letting the figure dry at least overnight before handling it again is a good idea too.
Hope that helps!

I used Testor paints as a base, then used acryllic for the second coat. It was four in the morning when I wrote that reply.

I forgot to mention that the pelvis is from a weapon X wolverine, and the ball jointed shoulders are from a judge anderson.
