I would love to tell a nice narrative about this character but I'm not much of a creative writer. I would have made this as a character within the Conan mythos, but as I was really just wingin' it on this one, I really wasn't inspired by any particular character. "Tara" is the name of a longtime family pet we had that passed away and I just thought that would be a good name to use (it was better than Cone-Ann the Boobarian anyways). I figure that Tara is just a female barbarian who's life kind of mirror's Conan's in many ways. She has probably been a slave, a thief, and a warrior at different stages in her life and has led an adventurous one at that.

This was just an exercise in fodder that I wanted to experiment with. For a while now, I have wanted to create a basic female barbarian like those in the cheesy 80's B-movies. I think the base figure is a wrestling figure called Torrie?, while the head is from another wrestler called Lita or something. (I'm not a wrestling fan). Tara's outfit and boots are courtesy of some "adult superstar" figure. I did some minor touch up work on the head and added some fur arm bands. The belt is from a Pirates of the Carribean Elizabeth Swann figure. The sword is from a Lord of the Rings elf, I cut the long handle off and did a little resculpting on it and the scabbard. The cape is from some Xena figure. The Polar Bears are from the line of figures for the movie "The Golden Compass", a little paint here and there and that's it. I hope you like!

Great job on this one! Perfect sculpt work and good headswap choice! Oddly enough, 'Tara' was a character in the Warlord series (DC) and she looked almost exactly like your figure. Check out the character on the web and you'll be surprised by the likeness!

Thanks to everyone for all the kind comments! There were some great customs in this contest, many of which obviously took more work and skills to do than mine. I feel very fortunate to have placed at all considering the sheer number of entries in this contest. So I would like to congratulate not only those who did place, but everyone else who participated!

Great figure, very clean. I love the details on this figure and the look you gave it. It would fit perfectly in the Hyborian world.
