I'm liking where you're going with these, I wish we'd get these costumes in figure form. A tip I recently learned from YouTube to paint yellow is to under paint with bright pink first. It might seem weird at first, but I've tried it and it really helps to cut down having to layer and layer paint for a vibrant yellow. I'll try finding the video and link it if you're interested.

I considered those armored shins! They don’t suit Kim at all but yeah, great look, I stopped and *tried* to justify them when I came across Mockingbird in my fodder bin.

Decided to just hide the boots with soft goods pants, these are the only pair I had on hand at the moment but will be replaced by a proper pair of Khakis later.

That would be awesome, thank you! I saw a video where someone was using beige underneath which I've found works rather inconsistently for some reason.

Still touching up the paint. Had a minor mishap with crazy glue and pulled a chunk of paint off his side. :?

My second pass at Dani Moonstar
Image
Used second Dani head to hack hair and move the braids forward. Was inspired by the late great Glen Webb to use twist ties for the braids that can either be put forward or back. Dremeled/sanded body down for more of a teen look.

:drool: Never knew I wanted a M.L. Kim Possible until I saw yours.

Now you have me thinking how to do the Danger Girl trio and Archer with Legends.

I might have leaned a bit heavy on the battle damage, but I plan to go back over with red and blue to balance things out. My oldest boy is a huge Transformers fan and I've gotten him numerous figures over the years, but I wanted an Optimus figure for myself and these R.E.D. figures are right in my wheelhouse. They lack in paint, but I can fix that and don't have to worry about all the paint rub I would have to in regular Transformers. I'm hoping to get Megatron next and I'll probably do some paint work on him as well. Image

I wanted a Bagley style Spider-Man on this body so I removed the Cyborg parts and added the arm from Klaw and the head from Lasher.
He should be a relatively straightforward paint job to finish now but I probably won’t get around to that for a year or so. Ideally I’d like to get him some additional alt hands too but they’ll probably have to be from a KO figure when I can be bothered to get hold of one.
