Customized Korra Action Figure by Yamino Customized Korra Action Figure by Yamino
See more progress photos here: [link]

As you can see, I somehow managed to get a lot of little painted details on her face! (I had removed the previous paint job with acetone.) I had the idea to use my finest micron pens to outline her eyes/draw her pupil, which worked great.

I wish I had the skill to resculpt her face, but it was much too small, and I would have made a mess of it. Itís not perfectly on model (itís based on a real wrestler) but itís good enough for me. I also didnít resculpt her top, which still shows the faint outline of a bikini and has a little too much cleavage. Her hair braids cover it most of the time, though.

I will try to make her fur-lined skirt thingie eventually, but Iím not sure where to start on that. I have zero textile skill, and donít own any sewing materials. =/

For those asking, I used Sculpey Firm to make the added parts. (Hence why I had to bake her in the oven.)

What figure did you use as the base?

I can't remember now-- it was a female Latina wrestler, based on a real person.
