Phruby, pardon me while I stand up and applaud!
Well done sir - this is so freaking outstanding. You really surprised me with this. I had a feeling in the back of my mind this wouldn't turn out like you were hoping, but I was wrong and thank goodness for that.
Most impressive, from the painting to keeping the joints intact, to the head, the dremeling out of the bikini (oustanding!) to the threads, silk, etc. WOW.
You get a great score for those grading this! I might want to suggest filling in her back with some sort of putty over the screw, but it's not necessary at all.
GREAT WORK, SOMEONE PUT THIS ON THE FRONT PAGE!
