She looks wonderful Paul. Are those heads swappable? I'm not a fan of the 'screaming' heads in general, but they do work when posed in certain scenes. I think this is one of the best Microman/lady customs you've come up with.

Thanks Ryan. The heads are swappable but I though the screaming one was more portional in size to the body.

Dang Phruby, that came out GREAT!  More than any other custom so far, the balloons really suit her (pun intended!)

That does look really good Phruby.  I'm typically not a big fan of the micro bodies (even though the articulation is outstanding) but you pulled this off great!  I honestly can't think of a more genius way to add her clothing than the balloon trick that you use too.  Awesome and good seeing a new custom from you!

your the guy who used to do micro customs with ballon fitted garbs. i was wondering who it was that i remebered doing that!

padme looks great. very curvascious. you did a good job integrating the hasbro parts into the microbody and your balln technique is very cool. good work.

Thanks guys. I'm working on a Star Wars Legacy Darth Talon Microlady figure. I'm using red ballloons for her skin and leather for her very few clothes. I just need to figure out how to do her boots. She wears really long boots that go 2/3rds of the way up her legs. I'm using the boots from a rots royal guard. The arm gauntlets will be from a 2005 Baroness

Talon is such a hottie.  Do you think you'll have any problems painting on the balloon "skin"?

Actually, I'm having total problems with painting the ballon skins. It cracks when you move the figure. I'm going to have to go with either a red balloon and try to match the color for the head or just forget the balloon skin and paint the figure.

No. I'm using a modified Aay Vida head. I've lenghten the head tales and gotten rid of the head piece. The head piece is actually a separate part. Then I smoothed out everything.

I was in SC for a week so i am just seeing your finished product.
I really like how she turned out. Your second choice for a head was even better than the one i offered.
Excellent work.
I really need to get off my duff and get some customizing done.

Sorry for the delay. This one has been done for a few days now. This is my version of Darth Talon from the Star Wars Legacy comic book. She is designed with a Microlady body for optimal posability.

She's very nice paul.  Could you use a black baloon for the bikini she wears?  Thats the only thing that i think needs adjustment.
As it is, her top just looks stuck on, like an afterthought.

Now that I think about it, a black balloon would have worked better for the bikini. It wouldn't have had the thickness the leather has. The top is suppost to be at an angle but I didn't get the angle quite right. When the glue touched the latex its almost impossible to remove the leather without destroying the latex. Eh, you live and you learn.
