Hello! I've been hovering over the forums for a few months and found the courage to post some shots of one of my kitbashes. I got interested in 1/6 figures because I wanted to have some sort of figure of some of the characters from the novels I'm trying to write. This is Nelly. She's an enforcer for a gang that delivers wholesale narcotics. The camera I have is a point-'n-shoot from 2003, so I apologize for the awful quality.

I still need to get her some thigh-high stockings and black ankle boots. This is a commission I had done for her by NanFe from deviantART: Capture.jpg - I have some little spikes that people put on their fingernails that I'm going to try glueing to her jacket.

@Andy - Thanks! I wrote a few novels back in the day but scrapped them all xD - Good luck on your third novel. It's fun having a character figure standing in front of the monitor or next to a notepad while writing.

@TexasToys - Thanks!

@Toylion - I may have to get those, but I have a non-removable feet Phicen so platform heels would look better. I could switch to a removable feet Phicen. Thanks for the link!

I'm thinking for the shoes: I ordered this recently: 1/6 Yellow Women High-heeled Shoe For 12" Female Phicen Nonremovable Feet Body | eBay, and I plan to paint them black (hopefully it works). For the top flap, I'm going to sew a little ankle cuff "thing" using some synthetic leather fabric I have.

I thought of getting this: Shoes for Integrity Fashion royalty Ⅱ FR2 natalia kyori dania giselle isha black | eBay to just paint the white part, but they're not for Phicen sized feet.

Nice custom, and good luck with the book and customizing the figure to go along with it!

Those won't work with this figure. The ball-joints in those boots are incompatible with any of the stainless-steel skeleton Phicen bodies. You're going to have to go with a boot that will fit an actual foot. Verycool has boots that go up the shin which you might be able to mod, or you can try paul_zhangby on eBay, who makes boots for Phicen figures (and who has said they will do customs on the FB group where I learned about them).

Thanks for the comments. :3 It's kind of cool having a figure of your character sitting on the table as you write. I tried painting anime garage kits and modding them into my own characters, but then I found out about 1/6 scale products and really fell in love with the realism. haha

I noticed that about those boots, too, that the ball joint won't make it work. Plus the heels aren't high enough. haha I appreciate the link, though. On that same website, I saw they were selling the boots alone from the new ninja set: Ninjia - Boots (For Feet) - Toy Anxiety. I ordered them and will see how they look.

I ordered from paul before. I ordered a pair of yellow boots a week ago and plan to paint them black. I'll look for his facebook page, and maybe I can get some black platform boots made.

Thanks for the input, everyone!

I'll just continue using this thread for my pictures, so I don't spam the forum. haha

I decided to switch Nelly's body to the mid-bust size that came out last year. Leather jackets just don't look "right" on larger chests. I have a couple Pale ones that I bought last fall before I realized how they're not very compatible with the skin tone of many headsculpts. I plan to get a couple Suntan S17B bodies and switch her to those.

I ordered a loose plaid shirt from the Dam Toys Combat Girls that came out recently, but the shirt was too small to fit even on the mid-bust phicen, so I found a men's plaid shirt. It works well--the sleeves are long, but it works. I edited the skin tone on the body to match the headsculpt. Later on, I'll switch this outfit and head to a suntan body.

So far, so good
Great Figure and Pictures !
Thanks! :3 I hope it gets better with the new body.

Hi, and nice looking kitbash. If I might ask, what is the cross necklace from?
Thank you - I got the necklace from here: 1/6 scale cross necklace Bracelet Priest for hot toys phicen Kumik verycool❶USA❶ | eBay - you can also search "1/6 cross necklace" and find a few around. I went to Walmart last month and found a chain with oodles of cross charms for around 3 bucks, so I bought that and some necklace chain, so I hope to make more for her that go down to her stomach. Crap, I forgot to put it on the new pictures. haha
