    El Mariachi from Desperado

    Hello everyone, another bash that is been in the making for some weeks. Hope you like him.
    Here are some pictures, enjoy :-)










    Just getting a bit carried away with the pictures

    I've use:
    Body: Triad Omega
    HS: Triad customised and painted with acrylic and pastels.
    Jacket: ST customised, scorpions added on back and sleeve with acrylic.
    Trousers: ST customised.
    Boots: unknown customised and spur by Ignite added on one.
    Shirt: Handmade.
    Gun: HT, Shotgun: unknown customised and painted in acrylics.
    Guiatar case: Storerooms. Case was customised to look smaller.
    All bits in the case are from mixed manufacturers.
    for looking.

    Wow, I was just thinking of knocking out a Banderas bash after seeing the movie again the other night, great job!
    pukingdog: What I like about your build threads, is that they start out like chaotic car wreck footage, which morphs into great figures. Your style is fearless.

    great movie and great idea for a bash. Love his guitar case setup and the scorpions you added are pretty sharp. Didn't have 2 silver rugers of some sort for handguns? i dont fully remember, but those would be a cool addition.

    I thought Triad's WitSec HS didn't look anything like Banderas but you did wonders to it.
    One of my favorite revenge movies.
