Custom Nightstar figure - A family portrait by vespertila Custom Nightstar figure - A family portrait by vespertila
Iím finished with my Nightstar/Maríi Grayson custom figure! Yay! =)
If you donít know who Nightstar is, you can find more about her here: [link]

I used the figure of Arachne (Eaglemoss Marvel Classic Figurine Collection #174 - [link]) as a base here

In the first place, let me say how very disappointed I am with the original figure quality; Arachne isn't nearly as good as she looks in her preview image!
The figure I got was, generally, VERY poorly made and painted and her face, except for her nose and mouth, was nearly featureless (all right, Arachne wears a mask, but still), so it wasnít easy, for me, to re-paint her face.

Since Maríi is half tamaranean, I decided to give her a complexion that is a mixture of her mom and dadís skin tone (which means a mix of pink-yellow-orange :D).
Also: I love how her collar decoration came out in the end. The making of it drove me utterly bananas, thoughÖ

More piccies!

Did you repaint the Starfire figure? because it looks great! the one I have is painted really bad, and I want to repaint it but and I'm scared to screw up everything xD
Nice work on Nightstar! ^^

good job, and better paint job of most the originals, The frst figures they made, where really worth the high price, but they started tu rush the paintjobs I think.

But One Mistake, that is Red Robin and Red Robin is mostly Timothy drake ;D

Thanks a lot! :) Having bought both - Marvel and DC figures - I honestly feel like saying that DC figures are a better quality than Marvel's. Marvel figures looks pretty... hurried, yeah.

In the alternative universe Nightstar is from, Dick grew out of his Robin and Nightwing persona and eventually became Red Robin. So, yup, Dick is the original Red Robin! :D (All of the Batboys, minus Dami, wore the RR cowl at this point XD)

yeah okay that is correct, but the real or actual red Robin is Tim Drake, and I think he is the one that wore it the most..and made Red Ro bin to what Red Robin is, so Dick does to Nightwing =)

I prefer Dickiebird in his blue&black tights best, too - yeah, Dick IS Nightwing ;)

I think I'll take another pic of Mar'i and her Nightwing!daddy later... =)
