Green Lantern: Mosaic costume
John Stewart head on a Kyle Rayner
body—the hair was sculpted on and the shoulders
were bulked up to match the Green Lantern body
type. Comic book aficionados will recognize
the design as John Stewart’s costume from the
short-lived “Green Lantern Mosaic” comic of
Atom-Smasher head with sculpted ears
on a Metamorpho body.
Sinestro figure with the top of the noggin sliced
replaced with the hair from an Arkis Chummuck
figure. I should have sanded
down the belt line on Sinestro, but that’s laziness
NovaThe body was a 6-POA
Green Lantern with the elbow and knee joints
superglued, shaved down, and resculpted, and
the head came from a Batman
with a sculpted helmet. The star is cut plastic.
The body is from a Black Canary, which I sliced
in half at
the midriff, glued a 1/8’ plastic bit in between
the halves, and sculpted
over to give a little more height. The arms
are from an Anastasia figure,
which I used for the long gloves and the fact
that the hands are a little
more interesting for hex-casting poses. The
head and cape came from a
Wonder Woman, and the headpiece is vinyl, with
a sculpted lock of hair
falling over it.
The Riddler body from "The Batman"
toy line with the head of a
Martian Manhunter, sculpted over the nose, smoothed
out the Riddler’s
costume lines, and sculpted the hood, cloak,
gloves, sash and boots. I’m
really happy with the way this turned out—it’s
a great design for such a
Here’s my version thrown into the ring of recipes
web—I started with a Mattel Two-Face body, since
it seems to be closest in
design and scale. The legs were cut and repositioned
slightly to make the
stance a little narrower, as well as to shorten
them slightly. The arms
were cut away just below the shoulder joint
and replaced with those of a
Wild Card Joker. The head came from a Kyle Rayner
figure with some
sculpting was done to smooth out the features
and add a little mass to the
back of the head. The hat came from a Mattel
Scarface, though it had to be
heavily reshaped. The coat was made from vinyl
with the collar cut from a
Bruce Wayne trench coat.
A Lex Luthor body with an Orion head, with sculpting
the helmet, gloves and shoulder pads. The cuffs
on the sleeves are vinyl,
the symbol is two pieces of cut plastic, and
the gun from the Luthor harness
was glued to the belt.
Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt
An Atom with sculpted hair and boot cuffs and
belt made from vinyl. I love this striking costume
Made from a Copperhead with the tail removed
and the head replaced
with that of an Amazo figure.
Hawkgirl with sculpted skirt, sleeves, gloves,
boots and hair.
The belt is made from vinyl, as is the mask.
The legs had to be superglued
in place, but I figure sacrificing the articulation
is worth it for a decent
Katma Tui figure with sculpted hair.
