Something I've been wanting to do- A while back I repainted a Jean face and couldn't believe how much better it made the figure, so I thought the only thing that would really make it stand out was to switch out her rubber coat for real cloth.
I took some red fabric and sewed it into shape, then cut the old coat just under the corset and glued the cloth into place.
Then I repainted her clothing detail, adding a darker ribbing to the corset and two different reds so it didn't look so matte. Then I dry-brushed her hair with another red to give dimension, and repainted her entire god-awful face for likeness.
The extras were just a ML Phoenix base, and small fire accessories from a Rachel Summers.
All in all I'm extremely happy with the way she turned out, and will be trying my hand at her in her leather uniform next.

WOW! You brought this figure to life!

Thank you. I have to say, I am pretty impressed with myself on this one. I'm using this head for 3 more jean figures- X1, X2, and X3 suits.... Hard at work now

X3 Jean Grey is the ugliest face Hasbro ever created right next to Emma Frost, but you made it look great. I'd still probably need a few cocktails before I tried taking her(?) home though.........nice work

Agreed- and sorry, but there's NOTHING I can do for that Emma- I've tried, haha
