Hey All. This is a commission for Annette. She wanted a 12" Statue of Buffy as she appeared in Chosen.
SO, this WILL be a Pre Battle Chosen Buffy (as in, no wounds, blood or dirt)
This is only the early stages, but i wanted to post it.
Ive done something with this figure that ive never done before, but through experience, found it necessary.
Ive used a Graduation Day buffy, but have used very strong steel wire to reinforce the legs and arms. I create "braces" that fitted along the back of buffys legs and into her feet, and then added more pegs into her hips, through the legs. shes pretty sturdy now.
The reason i wanted to reinforce the joints, is because, it seems no matter how much glue you use. the joints will cause the sculpey to crack...
the base, is a cast of the Varner Angel statue that ive had laying around for about a year. (this will be modified)
The scythe came from Faith, i believe. But i covered it in Aluminium tape, which has given it a real metal look.
