"Lisa Snart's older brother, Len Snart, is better known to the world as Captain Cold. Lisa endured the same abuse that Len did from their father. But while Len turned to a life of crime, Lisa tried to escape her abusive homelife by coming a figure skater under the name Lisa Star for the touring Futura Ice Show.

Lisa's claim to fame in the skating world was her ability to spin at incredible speeds, a skill she learned from her coach and lover, Roscoe Dillon, a man more commonly known as the Flash foe, the Top. When the Top was killed battling the speedster, Lisa vowed revenge upon the Fastest Man Alive and became the Golden Glider."


Been working on Golden Glider off and on for a while. Wound up switching heads half way through because I liked that the mask was already on the HML Marvel Girl head I picked up in a trade. Really wish Mattel would put out a few more Rogues already, but figured it'd be safe to make her. Now I need to make Roscoe Dillon soon.

GG was made using a DCUC Raven body and hands along with Zatanna arms. The skirt came from Supergirl. The head consists of an HML Marvel Girl two-pack head with Crime Syndicate Super Woman's hair. The skates were removed and modified from a pair of Barbie ice skates I found on eBay.

And lot's of paint (man, I hate painting with light orange and yellows!).

Hope you guys think she's...cool!

Wow, dude! Beautifully done! I love the skates!

Thanks. I originally thought they'd be too long looking at them online, so I tried a few things, including getting an old Kenner Starting Lineup figure. But that didn't pan out. So I got these relatively cheap, and they're actually a near perfect fit IMO. Couldn't be happier with them.

Wow! DC has some of the corniest villains. But your work is outstanding. You made her look respectable. Perfect head choice.

She looks fantastic, maybe a thin black outline around the orange design going down her chest would make it stand out a little more, just a suggestion. Great custom!
