First off, Props to me for making the very first custom of Mania, both on figure realm, and as far as i can tell, in general!

This is my most ambitious custom yet. As you can see from the recipe, she took many different figures to make. I had to sand much of the inside of the torso and abdomen, and change the hollow ball joint in the abdomen to a solid ball joint with aves apoxy sculpt. I sculpted the spider, armor, and head. I used bullets from an ammo belt for the ankle spikes, and make the gauntlets from a ghost rider's forearms that I hollowed out. After assembling the legs, I had to sand down the lower leg pegs to make it possible for the boots to turn more easily. I sanded down the pelvis to reduce paint rub, and protected the paint on those sections with clear superglue.

I had to paint the abdomen first, then assemble the torso on top and paint it without messing up the abdomen. The head attaches with magnets, so I can make an unmasked head later.

I painted the figure with a dark purple first, then drybrushed flat black on top of that, and then finished with a last coating of clear purple to give her that shine. The spider and eyes were drybrushed silver.

Now all she needs if an Agent Venom to complete the team.

Thanks! She was a lot of work, and a real unknown to boot.
