Hey Realmers! Next up is a commission that was very special. My cousin, whom I hadn't seen in over a decade, got married May 25th. I remember turning out arcades, toy hunting and theatre hopping with this guy! He had a big impact on my growing up and got me into hip hop and comics. So I took a trip to Houston after putting together the order his wife commissioned me for. She wanted a Tomb Raider theme with the colors fuschia and yellow somehow incorporated into it. Being the stylish pair they are, I gave them the secret agent look of MIB. Pree has mystical hex power similar to Wanda Maximoff, in which she has mystically charged the rounds in their pistols. The cross, animals, treasure chest and accessories are all metaphorical representations of what their marriage means. I think Black Adam is gonna be mad about the scarab necklace though lol. A Comicustoms original for my family. More pics on facebook.

update: The recipe is as follows: Lamar-Drax head with very thinly sculpted goatee, DCUD Starman shoulders, arms and jacket. Marvel Legends Steve Rogers torso, hands, waist, upper legs and knees with Drax lower legs/ pants. I added some sculpt to the legs so they wouldn't look so muscular (I don't know too many people that have legs so ripped you can see the definition through jeans). I did some mods so the Steve ROgers hands fit snug onto the Starman sleeves. Tie is from DCUC The Question and collar is from DCUC Brainiac (no pants classic one).

Persephone/ Pree- Hope base with Matty female wrestler head modified (dremmeled down the chin), Hit Monkey upper arms with movie Jean Grey forearms/ sleeves. I think hands are from Hope or female SHIELD agent. Hope wig, surprisingly the head and wig were very favorable of the bride. Sota Ibuki scarf, Pirates of the Caribbean jacket from Selma Hayeks character. Toybiz Spider Woman hip joints and legs. Lots of layering and airbrushing with the paints. I always like suited/ civilian clothed action figures). Its kinda nice when a whole auditorium of successful people applaud you on your efforts. The bride and groom were very pleased with the results, very special moment for us all.

As I mentioned, Pree has hex powers and has a variety of law bending abilities. Lamar, being significantly built in real life, he has your typical super strength and durability powers.


Thanks for looking and good fortune to you...

CC!
