Here's Kimmi Shrill-Joy. She's a rebel sympathizer, and helps out when she can --- without sticking out her neck too far. She has smuggled in primarily non-military necessities - medical and construction supplies for Alliance use.

She looks like the chick from T-3.... droool

Er, Anyway! Nice work here - love the belts & the use of the haed (where ever it came from - Asajj w/ cover girl hair?)!

That is just cool, JBW. She looks like one of the Legacy Comic characters, which I have a great affinity for. I've never had an action figure make my nether regions tingle like this before...

I concur with Penny: Assaj noggin w/covergirl hair. Leia Boush hands, maybe an Aayla torso and arms? That torso looks like it came with the waist and legs though. Great job.

I would say as Reprecht says, except the lower half of torso and the upper legs I would guess are from an Aurra Sing figure.
This is a wonderful combination of parts!

Thanks guys... I guess I was thinking it would throw ya'll off a little more with the face repainted... it really changes the look of Asajj.

P3NDR4G0N - thanks for the comment over at yakface... and yeah, she does have a bit of the look of T3.

Ruprecht - I guess she could pass for the Legacy Comic look... I'm not really into any of the comics, but have thought that a lot of the Legacy designs were pretty cool, so maybe I should change her backstory? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I honestly didn't expect this much positive response, I really only started out with the idea of the head/hair, and just came up with it pretty quick, but I do think she turned out pretty good.
Here's the recipe, even though ya'll have ID'd most of the parts already. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

So, starting from the top:
Covergirl Hair - Asajj Noggin - ROTS Aayla Torso and belly.... her arms are actually both lefties for the texture of the jacket, in which I cut at the bicep, and re-glued it, to get the ball-joint on the inside and not show up too much... next is ROTS Palpy cloak cut down to make the vest - Boussh hands - belt area cut down from the Utapau warrior's skirt, and finally the pretty obvious Liz legs.

Thanks for your feedback!

Since this figure seemed to turn out pretty well, thought I'd add a couple of clearer pics..... I just couldn't resist!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Still looks fantastic. What type of paint do you use? That flesh tone looks perfect and I've tried several without finding one I'm completely happy with.

That's one kickazz hottie! Great imaginative yse of parts and excellent paint app. She totally looks like she belongs in the SW universe. Like a female Han Solo type. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Thanks Tedious, glad you like her. I was hoping she'd have that "renegade" kind of look like Solo. A little independent, but still loyal to a good cause, as long as it doesn't endanger her too much.

Appreciate it M.K.O.S. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I just use Testors acrylic paints. For her skin tone, I just mixed up the paint. The base I think is a light creme/beige, and then just kept adding the tiniest amounts of red, white, and a little yellow until I was happy. For the ruddiness in her cheeks, I just went afterwards when it had dried with a light pink.

Hope this helps! Thanks!

Edit: I forgot to mention that when using the water-based acrylics, be careful of it drying up too fast. Make sure when mixing up a batch, to have plenty of it, and know exactly what you're wanting to paint. Otherwise, you'll end up running short, and having to repaint, which I've already learned doesn't turn out too well. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
