    Looks much better! I have this figure and it definitely needs a body swap. Which body did you use for the upgrade?

    Thanks. I used the Red Sonja body I also gave her new gantlets from the HT Captain Marvel with boots I found on ebay.
    Here's a few more shots.

    Did you have to use any powder to slip the suit on easily? Ive found body suits with phicens aren't easy while the skins are tacky.

    On Spider-man I didn't use anything. On Spider-Woman I used cellophane on her legs and arms. the suit slip right one. In the past I have used cornstarch to get tight costumes one. It rinses out really easily once the suits are one.

    She looks really tall (with the S23B I presume) compared to Capt Marvel! Was Marvel's original body just as tall before you swapped it with a Phicen?

    LOL. I didn't swap Captain Marvel's body. It is original. She is just really short. I just got the Young Rich Miles and they are the same size. I'll try and post some pics.

    cellophane,,,, I never thought of that one. I haven't tried Talcum power or cornstarch yet. But, that wrapping must prevent stains. One TBLeauge body I got smelled like lemon meringue cookies lol.

    I'm fairly new to this hobby, and am curious what specifically you mean by cellophane. I've used saran wrap to try to fit some tight leather (vinyl) pants on a 32B body and split the pants near mid seam trying to pull them over her disproportionately large buttocks. I put the wrap around her waist and keister, but think I should've wrapped her thighs as well. I've been able to somewhat hide the tear with black electrical tape beneath, but it would be good to know better products and techniques for when I get other tight fitting clothing

    Love the overall new look you have given to Spider-Woman. A nice improvement over AFM's design.

    I have her too. Did you swap her body out? How did you upgrade her?

    Yes I wrap the lower and upper legs. I do not cove the knees. I do not want t hinder articulation. I do not wrap the rear end area. You also need to make sure the pants will stretch / fit the body. Cellophane will not make a fat person fit into skinny jeans no matter what. I have had to stop many a fittings because it just wasn't happening. The clothes were just too small.
    I hope that helps you. If not let me know.
