Gender-flipping fictional characters is fun and Rule 63 of the Internet states that "for any given male character, there is a female version of that character" and vice-versa. I've done a gender-flipped Nightwing action figure and decided I wanted to do a gender-flipped Red Hood too. The Playmates Tomb Raider movie Lara Croft figures had the perfect look, even if they have virtually no articulation. So I took the upper body of Lara Croft in Motorcycle Gear and spliced it with the lower body of Lara Croft in Tomb Raiding Gear. It was my first time using a heat gun and some of the plastic got melted so the seam isn't perfect. I went with interchangeable heads: the unmasked head is from a Playmates video game Lara with hair and mask sculpted onto it. The masked head (which is a little too small but oh well) is from a Power Rangers figure, sculpted over. Painted it all up (I think painting the soles red is a nice touch), with guns also from the Tomb Raider movie figures. Thanks for having a look!
