Thanks for the compliments Glassman. I need to give you some props, if I remember correctly, you made an animated version of Padme a while back - it definately inspired me to try my own attempt at this - without the sculpting.
Unfortunately, I didn't take any progress pics - they would have been very good with an undertaking this big (at least for me).
Maybe if I give a breakdown of the figures I used it might give some idea of the work involved.
Body (legs, torso, arms) - Barriss Offee I just repainted using flat white spray paint, with many light coats to get a smoo
th finish and deep color. The belt is simply just the skirt cut off, and trimmed up smooth.
Head - Pilot Padme face, and Cloud car pilot head. This was a "face transplant", a bit difficult, and alot of sanding to smooth down the grooves on the CC pilot head. I cut down the face to be what I wanted to show on the final product. Super glue finally affixed the face.
I thought the hands were too big from the original figure, so replaced them with VOTC leia hands, which also hold the pistol much better.
The cape is from a Droid Factory Padme, but after trying to paint it (which only became extremely sticky), I took nail polish remover, and took off my paint, as well as the original off-white to make it brighter. The hood is from Barriss Offee, but cut and shaved down to where I was satisfied with it being small enough. This took along time until I thought it looked right.
I used small guage pipe cleaner for the fur, and threaded pom-poms for the dangly ties.
Hopefully my attempt my give a litle inspiration for others working on their own projects.
