Hullo everybody,
It's been awhile since I've last posted my stuff, (I work WAY too slow, gotta pick up the pace! :lol)

But here's my latest project, he's coming along so well that I thought I'd put up some progress pics;

UPDATE: FIGURE NOW COMPLETE! FINAL PICS HERE: Monsieur O.G custom Phantom figure COMPLETE!

It's an Erik from the musical version of Phantom of the Opera, not quite done yet...

I used Ramin Karimloo's Phantom as reference, I know that somebody is eventually going to say "You should have used Michael Crawford or Colm Wilkinson or this guy or that guy" but I watched the 25th Anniversary DVD of the London stage performance, which was so awesome that it revived the fondness of Phantom of the Opera that I had when I was younger....Not to mention that it's my time,and my action figure display,so I'll do what I want! :tongue

The head was originally a Hot Toys head, but I've shaved, sculpted and transformed every bit of it beyond recognition, there's really next to nothing left of the features from the original (maybe the left nostril? One of the lower eyelids? :lol ) so I suppose you could say that this is the first head I've done that is essentially mine...One day maybe I will be brave enough to start from scratch, but I don't quite trust myself with proportions yet...

This figure will have the ability to be masked and unmasked, because I figure that if you're gonna make a Phantom figure, you shouldn't cop out and just do the "handsome" head with the half-mask. Come on! The whole point is that he's HIDEOUS! So in my figure, he's got the "ugly" head, and then a wig and mask that attach over it by tiny magnets buried inside the sculpt and accessories.

The wig is sculpted in 2 pieces and fit neatly together on his head. The mask attaches by a magnet that's in the forehead.

Alright! So close to finishing this figure! Tux is completely done, the cloak is all sewn and bedazzled, too, just waiting for his custom fedora to come in the mail before I take pics of this all put together....I think this will be cool when it's done, I'm quite proud of this one :) Might turn out to be my best project yet!

very nice indeed - however no-one can trump Michael Crawford as the Phantom in my eyes! Just like no-one can trump Wilkinson as Jean Valjean in Les Mis...both soundtracks on my mp3 list for my car, with Chicago, Rocky Horror and Miss Saigon :)

Excellent sculpt

ERIK! EXCELLENT sculpt! Really looking forward to seeing the completed figure. I came to know of the musical late, but ever since I discovered it... :D I was really happy to be able to catch the show when it came a few years back.

Thought I'd add a quick progress pic of the work on the suit so far, see above :)
Looking great! The Tux type shirt looks like a challenge (I can't sew to save my life apart from bike rally patches!:wink) Didn't they make one like that for Ken years back? Might be terrible or might help, then again remembering your past work you're a brilliant seamstress.
