New Custom Tuesday – 5/4/2010

New Custom Tuesday is a weekly, creator submitted list of the latest custom action figures. This list provides a convenient way to check out all the latest custom creations posted in the galleries without having to search each individual thread.  For this week’s customs, read on!

This week’s featured custom is Ms. Big Pile of Dust’s ‘Recruiting Spike’ scene from Buffy the Vampire slayer.

Recruiting Dru, Darla and Angel

I think some of my favorite episodes of Buffy were the ones where they went back in time to show the origins of some of the main vampire characters.  I especially like the “Fool for Love” and “Darla” episodes where they depict how Spike joined their group .  MsBigPileofDust created the characters from this episode here almost from scratch and pretty much pitch perfectand in all their period costume glory.

MsBigPileofDust always does great work on her clothing sculpts and these three are no exception, but this Darla especially jumps out at me as a great transformative sculpting and paint job.  I never really felt like that headsculpt captured Julie Benz’s likeness all that well until MsBigPileofDust worked her magic on it.  That crazy period hair-do is so great, too.  Click the above pics for links to MsBigPileofDust’s thread with more pics (including some instructive WIP shots).
