For my custom I chose Granny Goodness.
She started out on the larger WWE wrestling buck, this idea has been around for ages and i am no way claiming it to be an original idea.
I added Greenstuff to the jowls to give the appearance of a fuller face. I then sculpted the hair into a more Granny-esque style. Greenstuff was also applied to give her a more *ahem* female appearance.
Originally I toyed around with sculpting to give the appearance of her chain mail armour costume. I couldn't sculpt that into a perfect row, so I decided to use sequins, I had to cut them in half and layer them.

I sculpted some boots and added some spikes, I also added spikes to her wrist guards.
I also sculpted sleeves and put in some costume contours.
The cape is from the recent Odin ML wave and I believe the accessory is from DCUC Barda.
The pics aren't the best, I had to use my iphone and the light coming of the sequins and the flesh tones were killing me for light.

Thanks for looking

I don't usually do female customs because almost all of the female bucks are ugly. So when I decided to do one for the comp I was a bit at a loss for who to do. Then I saw that ugly ass Sharon Carter that Hasblo gave us on my shelf and decided she needed an upgrade.

I really dig Sharon, especially her white costume. I wasn't sure what buck to use, except I had only one goal in mind....to make Cap's girfriend sexy as hell.

She ended up being half a Black Widow 2-pack figure and half a Cordelia (Buffy) figure. Unfortunately the torsos didn't match at all so I just ended up hacking them in half, pinning them into the position I wanted and using green stuff to fill in the gaps. The hair is a Frankenstein's monster of parts and green stuff. I was going for that high hair sixties Steranko spy feel. Hair ain't my thing. Pistol and holster from someone I can't remember and then a complete paint and try to get that metallic white as smooth as possible.

Enjoy!

Sharon Carter, a.k.a AGENT-13

Oh baby!
Really cool Ben, how do you get the white paint so silky smooth? I know it's probably spray, but you got some mad skills!
Cool pics and background.
Well done.
