Nanny was from me! I'm at work so I'll post a much more detailed "making of" with pics later, but she was fun to make. Crazy unique character, that I figured Hasbro would never make, so I'd put forth effort to bring her to life.

I really hope you enjoy her, Diddy310.

Soooo grateful to have received this absolute beauty of a figure as a gift. This is a ML style Mulan. The paint apps are so crisp and the use of armor is so strategic and fits perfectly with this base figure and overall theme. I can’t stop looking at the green paint fade on the skirt. It is absolutely mesmerizing. My most sincere thanks to my elf. I’m going to have to start making all of the other princesses as warriors now.

YAY!!! I am so happy you liked her. I thought it was a great idea to make Princess Warriors!!!
This is not something I would have made on my own, that's why I loved this project!

I made Snake. Happy you like him! He's a GI Joe Classified Flint head, Zartan torso, Firefly legs, and Superior Octopus arms. Gun was from Deadly Origins Black Widow

Such a great job from another one of our new participants! Great work Artman!
Holy crap that Robotman!

Im late to the party, apologies to my elf who made this BADASS figure! Ive been working 16 hour shifts and i hate the holidays.... but this more than makes up for it and im EXTREMELY impressed!
My elf made me Head Lopper from Image comics and also added an Agatha the Blue Witch accessory!
For anyone who loves media in a semi Gendy Tartakovsky (samurai jack)ish style, i highly recommend the series!
I'll eventually post better pics on my IG: Gonard_Custom

To my elf, im extremely grateful. My list was probably an annoying one to thin down haha.

There’s been some awesome reveals this year so far and still a bunch more coming! Our talent pool for this event keeps getting better and better!

Also, I’m posting this on behalf of one of our new participants this year, OneOakCustoms. He made that Head Lopper that Gonard received and posted. Here’s what he had to say about it…

“That would be me who made the head lopper. I’m glad you like it. This is actually the first custom I made for anyone besides myself. So I’m glad I got to participate this year. Had lots of fun making the figure and I learned a lot of new techniques. Well enjoy it I sure did making it.”Image

So today I received my secret Santa gift and man o man I couldn’t be happier with it! It is so well done and perfectly executed in every way. I particularly love the build of the figure and the silhouette it cuts. It’s exactly what I wanted for EWJ. The paints are so clean and the mix of matte white and gloss skin tone/blues is striking. This is a character that’s been on my secret Santa list every year since I started participating 6(7?) years ago and now he’s finally here. It’s Earthworm Jim!

I obviously know who it’s from but I’ll let them take the love cause it’s so amazing and so well deserved! And if anyone wants to watch me open it up and pose it around, I posted the live video of me opening it on my Instagram @customsbymatchu

Haha yep you do know, but Jim was done by me! (AceOutlawCustoms as my username is different)
Glad you love him, and it’s been a personal project goal of mine for a while. And shit I had the some of the parts for over a decade or two (1996?) Very fun to plan and make, and hard to let go lmao. Image

Great job! I used to play the old Sega Genesis game and watch the cartoon :)

Very well done!

I just got this!

Man! Skurge came out awesome!

The recipe intrigues me, looks to have some 3D printed parts, maybe even the head? Don't know but it's awesome anyway!

Please maker step forward so I can give you due credit! ImageImageImageImage
