    My Classics/Filmation Frosta Hybrid

    Ok guys, so here's my version of a Frosta hybrid. I took some of the details I liked from the classic POP toy and intergrated that with the filmation look. I changed the bodice added some detail to the boots and changed her gloves to the ice inspired bracers. I gave her a slightly modified cape to include a collar but not a huge fluffy one. I also included a photoshopped version of her with the lighter bttm part similar to some of the toy figures( although I believe that was just a quality control issue.Well, hopefully cuz I def do not understand that!) just so you can see what it looks like. I decided not to go with the sheer skirt/cape look. I just can't imagine that looking good at all. Unless it was translucent frosted plastic.... I decided to do her skirt and bracers in a pearlized white with a silver belt.....the camera flash didnt work to well with it however and overflashed the belt. I didnt have the time to set it all up lightwise sooo there ya go! Personally, I dont care for the lighter colors too much (sorry Darkspector) hehe. Seeing them side by side, I still like the filmation version better. The only thing I think I'd keep is the belt, perhaps the boot detailing reversed (like the toy). I know some of you say the colors look more "icy" but I just think the filmation one looks more elegant. The color contrasts and the smooth lines, the long gloves...she looks more sleek and beautiful. To me she does anyway. Of course both are welcome in The MOTUC line. ") Enjoy!

    Both are truly beautiful, but I prefer the one on the left with the full white gloves & lighter-colored hair.

    You know I loved your customs, they are so carefully done, The best way I can explain what I mean is they "don't look like customs" I mean the paint on the bodies and faces look beautiful. If I didn't know Frosta hadn't been produced yet, I'd sware you bought her from matty.

    another excellent job, congrats.

    i prefer your first take on the character, but have to say that the new one is greatly executed, as well.

    nice.

    There are aspects from both that I like. So I can't pick a favorite.

    Glimmer would be nice to see!

    On Frosta: I thought the Filmation Frosta was Amazing... Now with those Toy Elements she looks MORE Than Amazing...
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    All of your customs are incredible. The paint apps are perfect. What brand of paint do you use??

    Thank you again Guys. BCRDuke, I use several different brands. Only a few work really well. Firstly..I hate Tamiya. Its thick mixes horribly with any other paint. It actually gets granule-like seperation when thinned and it drys way too fast blah! I really love polly scale! They go on so smoothly, thinly with great coverage. Testors Model Masters are a close second. For special effect type paints, Testors Pactra made for Remote control model cars have really nice metallics, pearls and translucents. That's what I used for Frosta's pearl and Scorpia's Tail, Sorceress's green bodice... They are made for airbrushing but they work well enough. I can't stress this enough! Thin Thin Thin! I have two bottles of Testors thinner. I use it all the time. I put it directly into the jar. Keep the paint the consistency of milk maybe a little thicker but barely!Anyhow, hope that helps any. Thank you for all the comments. ")
