Happy 2014 to all of you artistic geniuses. I hope you and your families all enjoy good health and the all the other blessings you deserve. Well here's my first custom for this year: The brash young Asgardian Prince, famous for leaving in his wake Midgardian maidens minus their virtue, as well as a goodly amount of empty mead casks. Okay, enough hyperbole, on with the recipe.
Base figure: Curt Hawkins WWE figure
Tunic and waist cloths : leather purloined from a discarded fanny pack
Cape: cut from the sleeve of an old baseball jersey and adorned with craft store cord and charms beads
Animal skin on right shoulder: piece of cloth cut from a automobile seat cover.
Belt: strip of leather cut from an old baseball glove, buckle came from an old watch my wife kept in her junk drawer.
Boots, leg wrappings: piece of old dried chamois wrapped with craft store cord.
Axe: courtesy of Lord Thor of Asgard figure.
Wrist bands: leather and craft store cord.
And my three pronged God Butcher attack team is complete.
The only paint I used was for the thigh area to make it appear as if our young Thunder god was wearing pants and no Apoxie or other kind of sculpting material was used.
Lastly, I hand stitched all the garments and wristbands. So, the tailoring is not pro grade but sufficient for the time period that our favorite Asgardian was roaming around Midgard.
Hope you guys like him. I am very pleased with how he came out.
