Just had to share my work with you all. I love seeing people's customs. It gives me great ideas for my own stuff. I actually thought of this custom the second I saw the Gentle Giant Slave Leia figure at SDCC '06. I know others have done this with their figures, though I haven't actually seen anyone else's work, but have they done it this well? I ground off the base and skirt, replaced the skirt with real cloth, and took the chain from the Kotobukiya figure because it was accurate whereas the Gentle Giant one was just a plain chain.




Now, originally, the scuplted skirt didn't cover as much of Leia's butt as the final product skirt does, but when Carrie Fisher, who was at SDCC '06, saw the figure she threw a bitch-fit to the Gentle Giant staff in front of everybody (eyewitness account) complaining that she didn't want a figure showing off "HER" butt and couchy. I was told this by a Gentle Giant staff member personally at the Star Wars 30th anniversary convention. GG had to rescuplt the skirt to cover more of her cheeks. To that I say, HELL NO! I not only removed the sculpted skirt, but filled in the square hole it fit into in her right cheek, sanded it smooth, and paint matched it so that my figure has a full Carrie Fisher moon. Besides, it's not Carrie Fisher's backside I want to see, it's Leia's, and now you can too. You're welcome.

Lookin good, lol funny anecdote too. With the dedication you've put into this piece it should be a fine display for years.
Also, you should put <IMG> infront of each link, and </IMG> behind each one, except instead of < and > you use [ and ], so the pictures will show up. Good luck!

Very nice custom,

You'd think Carrie wouldn't mind having her derriere immortalised, after all, it's probably a little south of where it once was! Nice mod you did on that bit. You can bet that was where Harrison Ford was looking while acting blind! Michael (Bib Fortuna) Carter loved that outfit, he could see straight down it from where he was standing.

CHEERS!

Throne room glory

So when can we expect the rest of the throne room? Hint, hint!!
Well, I have the Jedi Luke in cowl, Bib, Boussh, all the creature packs, and the Hasbro drink-catty R2. It's just a matter of time till Sideshow makes the rest. I wish the Medicom Boba Fett were painted to match his gear in Jedi. The gun on him is wrong for that movie too. I wish the Hasbro carbonite Han were better looking. Attakus has a nice Oola statue with mesh outfit for terrific boobage, but it's too small. I suppose I could scratch build the room itself though (like this stuff doesn't take up too much room already).
