So, like I said, I am having to find new pieces and such for my customs, and that means buying, waiting and waiting some more, so basically I tried to find something to work on, while waiting on pieces for my Raphael Custom, and I did this one.
Like I said, I'm recreating a new mythology here, and Ramona Elizabeth is one of those characters. Unlike her original counterpart, Mona Lisa, from previous lines (cartoon/toyline), this character is much younger. With the original Turtles mid-30's to close to 40, there are newer characters taking to the streets to fight the likes of Armaggon, Verminator X, and whatever remnants of the Foot still exist, amongst other things. With Donatello rarely leaving his lab, Leonardo in a self-imposed exile, Michelangelo and Raphael sought out help in there duties. The teenagers: mutant lizard Mona Lisa, the gender swapped/teenaged clone of Leonardo, known as Venus, Shadow Jones, and the newly arrived teenaged Michelangelo from a parallel Earth (I totally didn't intend the whole roster to be female),have all joined to work against whatever faces them.
Mona: Go on, who are you?
Teenaged Michelangelo: ...yeah, I'm fine, thanks for asking...
Mona: You're not dead,eh? Then you're fine.
Teenaged Michelangelo: My name is Michelangelo, yourself?
Mona: Really? Michelangelo? You've got to be kidding me. Like a clone or something?
Teenaged Michelangelo: Huh?
Mona: Never mind then, I'm Mona...well actually my name is Ramona Elizabeth, the Mona name came from my human days...but that's neither here nor there. Right then, let's get you to your feet...
Mona Lisa here was made from A J Lee (I think that was her name) figure exclusively. The head/face was sculpted over the original head, with a fresh paint job. I left the boots (they looked like the knee-high Chuck Taylors that some of the "cool" hot topic kids rock), belt and gloves, and in honor of her affinity for pink in the earlier toyline, I added pink highlights throughout her hair. I'd imagine her as said Hot-Topic teen...still a passing interest in things such as Physics (circa cartoon)...a bit older in the 18/19 range, with Filch still responsible for her mutation, though in a different manner. I'd also imagine her as more of fisticuffs brawler, because not every mutant has to be a Ninja or martial artist.
