    Shadow Weaver and Scorpia, vintage customs

    Hello,

    I am new here and I would like to share with you some photos of custom figures that I made for my vintage MOTU & POP collection.
    Since I recently start collecting POP figures, I decided to make Shadow Weaver that would fit both MOTU and POP styles by adding or removing some of the accessories:

    Here is also my Scorpia custom in MOTU style:

    Both look amazing! I don´t think Shadow Weaver needs the extra skirt piece but the flowing fabric is a great idea to give her a hovering effect.
    The cape piece is simple but perfect and using the Sorceress bug for her is genius.

    Scorpia looks spot on and the moveable tail is great!

    Thanks Niki,
    your Scorpia redesign make me wanna work on another custom of her, this time with some long red hair coming out from the top of her "helmet". I would also change a bit the shape of helmet to fit's better for this idea, and of course to add some POP style accessory, maybe belt with red holographic horde symbol or something like that...

    I would use some of the swivel-head POP dolls as a base (they have better sculpt, and thinner legs that dolls from the Wave 1).

    Something similar I wanna do with new Shadow Weaver, on the same type of doll as a base, but with very long black hair....and I would also make removable mask from the black face so she can look more like Shadow Weaver by Nebezial

    Thank you both!

    I've added some accessories for these Horde ladies.
    Scorpia got shield and Shadow Weaver got magic scepter but also she has better hovering effect with that "scarf".

    Must have mist these the first time but they look great!
    The sculp-paint is amazing on both of them and the Shield is a beauty.
