I've been slowly making characters from the 1966 Batman TV series (though nothing as extensive or good as Thomas has done). I've tried to keep these customs as Megolike as possible, so you'll notice that the parts used are either orignal Mego or Mego repros. Even the cape is made from vinyl material.

Parts: Original Mego WOZ Glinda head, CTVT female body (that's why she's standing strangely), Doc Mego cowl, belt, purple bodysuit, gloves and boots, my handmade cape.

Very Cool! The only thing I ever liked about the old Batman series was Batgirl and Catwoman and I love the way you did Batgirl. I wish Mego made her with purple instead of grey.

I love it! I've been thinking about adding a repro Batgirl to my collection but after seeing your's, I want the tv Batgirl.

Didn't the 70s Filmation "New Adventures of Batman & Robin" feature a purple Batgirl?

Nice job, I really like the use of Glenda's head. I like her red hair color much better than the original Mego Batgirl's fire red.

Looks pretty good. I look forward to seeing the rest of your customs as they are completed.

Thanks for the compliment. So far, these are the only other two 1966 Batman customs I've made. I am working on Joker, Penguin and the Riddler, though.

Worth a second look IMO--a sharp Megoesque figure.

Very nice use of the Glinda head, better than what Mego came up with back in the day, just an awesome
piece, great costume and colors, Batman and Robin look very cool too.

Did you add to the cowl or is that black paint around her eyes?

The mask is a piece of black vinyl glued to the cowl. It overhangs her eyes.

Now I'm inspired to pull out the purple cowl and boots I ordered from Doc like a year ago and get crackin' on my own! Thanks!
