Heres some pics,i hope they turn out better! This is work in progress,i took mint dorothy mego figure,and batman cowl i modified so it would fit her,i have to paint it purple!
I have to figure out which way i want to do cape ;whether to attach to a neck band or attach to green trim??
I also have to find good green boots and belt!!I cant seem to be able to find plastic belts for females! I hand sewn costume.
The 2nd is a robin iam making from mattel barbie friends,i am in progress of sewing tiny removable tunic and shorts! I hardened the head and sculpted mask and hair from sculptey(burnt off the ugly red hair that was on him).

just thought id share him i think he is cutesy,plan on doing the 4 teen titans;wondergirl,speedy,and aqualad in this style!
So thanks for looking,will post updates!thanks!

I love the look of the Robin!! Post photos when it's done as well as the other Titans. I liked the use of the cutdown Cowl for Catwoman. It looks much better than I thought it would have. Great job.

MB your customs are great but ya gotta work on that photography:wink: Catwoman looks very classic, course she needs her whip or is a a cat o' nine tails! Robin though, is kinda creepy! Don't know, maybe I will have to wait till he's done:grin:

Dude, I really want to see those Titans in the "cutesy" style. They could be a lot of fun.

Gotta agree on that. Not sure about the "cute" Robin tho, but I'll wait till you're finished to pass my final judgement

That Robin head looks like a great "base" for Bat-mite. But does look like a cool project. I think that was the coolest part about kid sidekicks -- you could at 10 imagine that was you.
Can't wait to see more on the Catwoman.

the Robin would work for Larry the Titan. And there were 4 other Titans, you forgot Kid Flash. Unless you meant the Mego line, you also forgot KF. :)

The Catwoman dress looks great, I hope you finish her up and give her a whip like was suggested.

The Robin head looks VERY cool, how tall is he? I can't wait to see the Titans finished!!!

Great work, keep it up!!!

I can't tell you the exact height, but the Robin body used is from Mattel's Sweetsville Kelly dolls offered in 2003. That year, Mattel enlarged the head and elongated the limbs compared to the earlier and subsequent Kelly dolls in the Barbie line. The new look was too distorted for the collector market, and I got the impression they didn't sell well in general. Barbie Collectors refer to these as the lemonhead dolls, because they look reminiscent of the pan ferrara candy mascot.

I would never have thought of using one for a custom, but I love the results so far. Can't wait 'til you post a shot of the complete set.

Still not sure about the cute Robin, but he's coming along nicely. I gotta admit I don't mind the look as much as I did before. Nice work on Speedy too.
