Finally!!! 6″ scale Sam and Dean Winchester action figure customs!

Sam and Dean Winchester Supernatural 6 inch scale action figure customs Suzanne Forbes Sept 30 2022 Only took what, 17 years?

Ha!! I am so pleased with myself. My dollhouse has needed Supernatural action figures for so long! And inexplicably, no-one has ever made one-twelve scale figures of the Winchester brothers.

Sam and Dean Winchester Supernatural 6 inch scale action figure customs Suzanne Forbes Sept 30 2022 The heads came from ebay, cast in grey resin.

The sculpts are phenomenally, outrageously good. They look like they are produced from digital scans of the actor’s heads – yet how do these bootleg ebay sellers get ahold of the files?

Except not really, and painting tiny things is hard, but I’m getting better at it. I don’t ever plan to try to do it regularly; I leave that to the real customizers. But this was an extreme situation. Why has no one ever made Winchester Brothers actions figures in six-inch scale?

Heads from ebay, Sam head modified with Apoxie Sculpt to add more hair volume at back of skull. (his head was a little small for the body otherwise)

Sam body: Robert Pattinson’s character from the Twilight movies, by NECA, first movie I think. I carved out his neck and re-sculpted it and repainted to fit the Sam head better.

Dean body: Xander figure from the last round of Buffy figures from Diamond Select, in 2006. His hands were tiny, so I pulled them off and replaced them with the hands of a spare Wes from the last series of Angel figures. I also pulled the legs off the figure (they kept falling off anyway) and sculpted the joins where they met the hips to give the figure a little more height and more of a Dean stance.

Eventually I’ll put the Sam and Dean figures in the library with the Buffy figures and Blade!

Creepy new mermaid skeleton projects for the holiday season!

Skeleton Mermaid by Suzanne Forbes Sept 29 2022Look, I can barely keep it together these days.

I gotta make weird stuff to hold on. I had always wanted a hanging skeleton mermaid, so I bought a commercial one to customize. Of course I cut her spine in half and repositioned her for a nicer pose, and bulked out her pelvis and joints with my beloved Apoxie-Sculpt.

Skeleton Mermaid by Suzanne Forbes Sept 29 2022The skeleton came with a lovely pearly tone already!

I painted it with the usual: artists acrylic gradients, interferent blue, and some lovely oyster pearl. Then I add fins of Angelina Fantasy Film and UV resin, in turquoise and milky blue.

Gradient pearls, micro glitter, chunky glitter, glitter flakes, microbeads, and clear AB pearls added detail. I beaded some garlands, burned and slashed four different blue tulles, and added hair from the doll parts drawer.

Skeleton Mermaid and Preserved Fairy by Suzanne Forbes Sept 29 2022She’s kind of a companion piece to this horrible Preserved Fairy I made some years back.

The Preserved Fairy lives in a cabinet where it can startle my husband, and I hung the mermaid skeleton up behind a sheer curtain at the balcony door, for the same purpose.

Skeleton Mermaid in frame by Suzanne Forbes Sept 29 2022I also made this little duochrome UV resin mermaid-in-frame project.

I painted the frame in pastel gradients, added brushings of UV base coat, then duochrome powder, then top coat, and gradient pearls.
