My very first custom on The Realm!One of my comic book crushes from my childhood(and major Nordic hottie!),Valkyrie of The Defenders,who appears to be making a comeback in the MU!Hasbro may be missing the boat on this one,I'm sure she'd be a big seller and one of the more collectible of the MU figures if they would produce her.I seem to be on an Asgardian kick at the moment,so I'll be posting a few of those figures and I'm currently working on a couple more.
I've learned that customizing is full of "happy accidents" and sometimes it's best to follow your instincts and see where they lead you!Most,if not all,of my customs evolve as I'm creating them,and often have differences from the source material,so my work reflects my interpretation of the characters.So,please remember,the figure may not look 100% like the comic or movie version,but I always do my best to capture the essence of the character.
Quite often I see other customizers figures and I'm in awe of their work and have to make one of my own!In those cases,I hope the original customizer realizes that imitation is the ultimate form of flattery,and I really am paying them a very sincere compliment.In cases where I know who the original customizer is,I will always give credit where it is due.
I welcome all comments and critiques of my work,and will give any additional details of my recipes if anyone would like to make a similar figure of their own.Thanks for taking the time to check out my creations!
