Well, since I jumped the gun on showing mine early, do whatever you want.   :)

But starting in June, I think we should wait until June 29-30.   ;)

 :P

Holy ****! That's awesome CHEWIE! :o

She'd look right at home in the Outlander club (something I've wanted to do some customs from). That's great. I love the double-fisting Lando gettin his mojo on. Bravo!!!

Thanks Lando.   Always nice to see a local scoundrel in these parts.   :)

Actually, yeah - she is in my Outlander Club diorama now.   ;)

Well I got pictures of mine up. ;D

She is a Togruta Stripper. Obviously the body is a Slave Leia. The back had shattered a long time ago so I had to to completely resculpt the back with plumber's putty. The left arm is a modified OTC Dagobah Luke. The head is a SAGA Shaak Ti head, I finally found a use for it. :)





And keeping with the current theme.....  :P ;)

Awesome!!!  That's freaking great!

Parts used - Good use of the Slave Leia - putting that head on it makes it looks like a totally non-Leia figure.  Great idea using the Luke arm too - it gives her a much better pose, and actually makes her look kinda sultry!   ;) 

Color selection - perfect - I love the idea of that species having differnet colorations than Shaak Ti!

And I like the mini diorama - hee hee!

 :P

Awesome! That is an amazing job (I commented more in your own thread) and it makes me want to resolve my hosting problem all the more so I can post pics of my "challenge" figure.

I think Zutton should be waving some Republic credits in the air in that mini-dio, though.

Oh, and just to go back to the theme of CHEWIE's custom... I say Lando totally aired that out.   :o

Sith Lord Chaos - awesome job!  As CHEWIE said, I like your choice of color ;D

I do! I do!  :D

Well, for my entry in the monthly customizing challenge, I knew I wanted to do a Twi'lek, but I wanted to give her a different role than you would normally expect. (Besides, I didn't have any hottie female dancer bodies.)  :P So, I decided to make a Twi'lek smuggler. Behold:



I used an Aay Vida head and a GvC Scarlett body, which seemed like a smuggler-esque uniform. However, the vivid color choice and slits in the front and on the inner thighs seemed to work with that inherant hottie-ness that all Twi'lek women, save perhaps Lunae Minx, seem to posess.  ;D

Forgive the glossiness, but I ran out of dullcote last night.

Hope you guys like it!

I'm running late on this one and decided that Lumiya will not be ready in time. I've decided to go with yet another Twi'lik dancer. This one is going to be done in the vintage style but with gi joe movement. I'll be painting the silver pins to make them blend in better. The color of the skin will be sky blue just like the jar. I think the clothes will be white but I'll take any suggestions on it.

What do you think the clothes color should be? Black could be sexy?





Oh, are these customs going to be stored somewhere forever on jedidefender as we add to them? Kind of like the group projects were stored at FFURG.

Phruby,

Looks good so far! I like the idea of the clothes staying white, maybe with gold trim. It will make them stand out more, I think.

I think she is going to turn out pretty well also. I've painted the skin. Now what color should the clothes be? I won't be able to work on this again until wednesday night.

Awesome Custom DD!  It's cool to see a non-stripper hottie (never thought I'd say that :-[).  Good idea ;D
Master_Phruby - cool custom so far, I can't wait to see her finished up.  I think black would look pretty good.  Make sure to leave it glossy ;)
One thing though, is that hair one the twi-lek?  That's the only thing that seems a little out of place to me.
