BILLIUM's Customs Vol. 2 Beverly Switzler pg1

Tue Mar 30, 2021 3:55 pm

Shame I lost everything in the Blip of 2020, but life moves on. Anywho, I recently picked up a few Man-Thing and Howard the Duck TPB's; what can I say? I'm a huge Steve Gerber fan. And one character of Steve's that I don't see Hasbro ever getting to is Howard's girlfriend, Beverly Switzler. This was an easy, but effective one.

Recipe:

Hair: Gwen Stacy
Head: Mary Jane Watson (from the Retro Gwen figure)
Body: Moira MacTaggert

I used a hair dryer to heat up the MJ and Gwen heads until the hair peeled nicely off of them both. I then painted Gwen's hair red, followed by a reddish-brown wash. The red paint didn't really want to stick too well for some reason, so once I was done doing touchups on the hair and headband, I painted some Modpodge on to make sure the paint stayed on there. After that, it was a simple matter of Super Gluing the hair onto the MJ head, and voila, we have Beverly Switzler. For a nice added touch, I gave the 2019 comic Loki sword to Howard to mimic the cover to Howard's first ongoing comic issue, which also happened to be Bev's first appearance.
