Today we go back to the DC Universe with Halo. I wanted to complete the Batman & the Outsiders team to complement my New Teen Titans collection. DC Direct did a great with the men on the team but, as usual dropped the ball when it came to the ladies.
Halo was one of the easier customs that I've done. She uses a DC Universe Classics Black Canary head, a Dove body and her hands are from the DC Direct Wonder Woman &Wonder Girl box set. The head was the perfect choice since I wouldn't need to paint her facial details, I can't paint that small of an area, I don't know how other customizers do it!
I plan to make a short haired variant once I get my hands on the Marvel Legends Captain Marvel Carol Danvers figure. Hopefully that version will be part of this project by the summer.
A Custom A Day....
I began toy collecting as a hobby back in 1990 I have always had a
need for custom figures. Toy companies begin action figure lines, begin
to release individual characters to create teams and, more often than
not leave them incomplete. Many collectors find that custom figures
pollute their collection's authenticity by not being mass produced
creations from the toy companies that created the preexisting toy lines.
I disagree. I feel a quality custom action figure enhances a
collection and help create a complete picture.
