Hello my fellow Realmers! , today I bring you the latest member of my "Worlds Finest..." Elseworlds family (both Super and Bats together) Barbara Gordon aka "The Batgirl" , since my BatWoman has been so greatly accepted , I figure I was only logical she had a sidekick (sorry NO Robin , yet!) and whom better than the original Batgirl , "When GCP Comm. Gordon is killed along with his whole family (wife and young sons Jason and Todd) , Gordon's cousin Katherine (Kate) Kane , a rich socialite and owner of the "Gotham Gazette" Magazine (who also patrols the night sky as the heroic Vigilante BatWomwan) , fearing for the life of her remaining family , her second cousin Barbara (Babs) rushes to Gotham University to save her life (the whole tragedy was orchestrated by a Dangerously Derange and Vengeance full Joker , all from within Arkham Asylum , just for laughs ) , arriving in the nick of time as Babs runs and tries to defend herself from Harley Quinn and her henchmen , the two brave females combine forces and defeat them all , except Harley , who left a little surprise for them in Babs apartment (a bomb) , not knowing that and feeling safer (Kate hasn't revealed about her family's death!) Barbara goes in for some personal effects and triggers the bomb and it ' blow away by the blast , barely surviving the impact , in shock Kate takes her to the hospital , praying for her and cursing the Joker for the Tragic event of that night . One year later Barbara has healed completely from her wounds , but is now blind because of the explosion , now living with her cousin Kate and her family (Kara and her girls), trains day and night rigorously in order to have her own justice againt her enemies as BatWoman's protégé "Batgirl...sorry...The Batgirl" , learning to develop her other remaining sense's to the max and using a special sonar bat suit than can echo sound waves and allows her a different type of sight (think Daredevil) , she's a young heroine determine to step out of the shadows and bring forth hope into the darkness. Long story I know , but hey , that's my style!. Recipe is both simple and complex , I used as base an already started MLI Spider-Girl (posted along a Toxin re-paint) , keep both the boots (painted them yellow) and cape (modified with 2 wrestling elbow pads and slit in one side , for easy attachment to the figure) , added 2 small bat hears and painted her hair with a deeper tone of red , also added a couple of bat-a-rang as her chest insignia and hand weapon , and of course painted her acrylic Gray (mix) in certain areas (using the spider's lines as guide!) , luckily enough found the perfect belt in the fodder bin , painted yellow and finished all that was left was to seal the paint in matte , and that's when it all went WRONG!, as soon I started spraying her I notice something weird , IT WAS FROSTED MATTE SEALER!!! , I stopped immediately , but the damage was done , specially the black parts , I was furious by my own foolishness , so idd what any other customizer would do , I re-painted as much as possible and try to save my custom , so all the black areas and the red hair was painted again , however the texture went from smooth to porous ,and a bit spotty , but given the circumstances I did my best and it came up pretty well , hope you like her and Thanks , later!

This one is really cool. Seriously. I'm planning on using one for a Batgirl myself. If you ever want to go back over this figure, try using acetone to remove the paint, and then start over. Use a Cu-tip, dip it in the acetone, and then gently start wiping away the paint. This will take many Tips, so be patient and careful. Make sure not to soak up too much acetone or let it pool in one area, the acetone will melt away the plastic. Also, it goes without saying (though I'll say it anyways ), wear rubber gloves, eye protection, and use in a well ventilated area. Good Luck!

Thanks my friend for all the very useful and excellent recommendations , painting is still something new to me and sometimes one makes some serious mistakes along the way , now thanks to you I now know how to fix them (or at least try) , as for the Batgirl , I did manage to save her , still , think I will make yet another version , maybe in another much older body type (I think Hope Summers will be a good match) , a Huntress maybe

En-Ryu-Oh!2061 - Friday, June 20, 2014
Believe me she look even better before the sealer incident , I was lucky to be able to fix her and I guess (NO!, I know) God lend me a hand that , Thank you my friend for taking the time to see my humble works and may God Bless you too!!

Cool concept sir, great work.
En-Ryu-Oh!2061 - Thursday, June 19, 2014
Thank you , really appreciated!

So creative! I love the fact that you put your own spin on characters and make them truly one-of-a-kind! execution on this is sweet, cannot tell from the pics that the sealer did any damage. If it makes you feel any better, I have made the same mistake Another great custom from a guy who does nothing but encourage the work of so many Keep up the great work
En-Ryu-Oh!2061 - Thursday, June 19, 2014
Thank you bro , I could say the same about your Ultra-Cool customs , as for the damage , all you have to do is see her hands , they were originally black , I did not fix them as a self reminder to be more careful next time!

NICE WORK!! Looks fantastic. I love the amount of thought you put into your projects and your risk-taking with it--the true definition of creativity!! Though my next few posts won't be anything 'new', THIS is creatively inspiring!

Haven't had a lot of spare time this month, but will happily make time for you my friend. Your work lately has been incredible. Your paint details have been improving constantly. Your ideas are, in my opinion , maturing in their complexity and becoming a reality. Well done. It is great to see someone so passionate about this craft getting better with every custom. Great job and keep doing what your doing. By the way, your female figures seem to bring out the best in you.
En-Ryu-Oh!2061 - Thursday, June 19, 2014
It's good to hear from you my friend! , Thank you so much for that huge compliment , I believe it's just human nature to learn and grow , to dream and create , that what evolution really about , the only problem is our very short lifespans and how sometimes we waste them doing the same meaningless tasks day after day , some may say this is just a "hobby" , but our craft is our legacy , just like painting , sculptures , books or film , it's art period , so it really feels GOOD to be recognize , even if it's for a brief moment , again ,THANK YOU my soul brother , and I must say your work lately have show a whole new level of craftsmanship that is really impressive and mind blowing as well , you too keep the good work , let ALL of us show the World what we can do!

Thanks bro! , the funny thing is she wasn't suppose to have such long background , she is already a pre establish character , but when I combined the other customs it became necessary .
