    Default Custom MARION RAVENWOOD Project

    I may be jumping the gun here but the SALLAH thread is getting crowded and has become the 'custom thread' so I thought I'd separate things, at least with this one.

    If anyone would like to post their Marion customs here, or share ideas for clothing bits, please do so. I think this is a bash that could very well happen after SALLAH.

    Please chime in if you're interested. I'm sure any sculptor would like to know about how many people would actually get involved in this project.

    Sculpt update:

    Could get away with a solid olive green, really. Green scarf is easy enough to make.... Pants are Khakis?

    Triad Eva w/the small chest would be a good body choice.

    Am I the only one not really interested in bar scene Marion? I think i'd prefer White dress (well of souls) or her red Cairo get up complete with a custom frying pan.

    I am in!!!!!!!!!

    Bar Scene for me.

    Wouldn't mind Cario either but I think I would go for bar scene first.

    We've gone through this many times in the past about which Marion. Everyone would love a white dress Marion, of course. Reality is: the hair sculpt could be a problem -- finding an accurate dress will be very tough -- and the exposed joints are an issue (though HT has since solved that somewhat).

    Bar Marion is an easy bash for the outfit. The hair-up do is also easier for a sculptor and would probably look better in hand.

    I'd like the white dress too. But I'll take the easy route to make it happen.

    I'm quite interested in this Marion of whom you speak.

    I'd definitely take just about any version of Raiders Marion, hell even the DC version from the end, but as Wor-Gar states the dress (my ideal) and the Cairo suit would pretty much have to be custom outfitted. At least the bar attire with we have a fighting chance to source from an etailer.

    Spenser commented in the thread in the custom section. I think he's down.

    I'm in for a bar Marion.

    Love it how the custom Sallah project brought some life back into the Indy section

    Haven’t see me around, is that a joke?

    I’ll do it but what hair style, I like the bar style it would be easy to sculpt and would most likely be easier to dress. What do you guys think…?
    Murderofcrows has a thread in ths custom section and also PM'd Spenser. His reply was essentially the same -- he'll do it!

    So there you go: we got a sculpt.

    Thank you, Spenser!


    OK, so like Sallah, the key piece is in place... now, the outfit....

    OUTFIT:

    Here's the parts:

    Green striped shirt
    Green scarf
    White camisole -- you can just see the ruffled top under the shirt
    Khaki pants
    Work boots
    (I think, but seems like eveyone in this movie wore work boots)

    Extras:

    Whiskey bottle -- probably use one from the SS Bond collection
    Shot glass -- again, Bond
    Cigarette
    Head piece to the Staff of Ra
    Wad of cash
    Gun
    -- the one she shoots the last guy with

    I'm pretty stoked that Spenser is on board. Looking forward to having Indy's new goddamn parter!

    Early idea for the shirt:

    Barbie Twilight Edward

    http://www.amazon.com/Mattel-R4161-B...5822361&sr=1-1

    I've been eyeing this for my Sallah vest. His shirt is button white with thin blue pinstripes. You could dye it a sort of mint green and then go in very carefully and add other shades with a white wash and a green wash. Only thing I'm not certain of is if the shirt has long sleeves. Anybody now for sure?

    That shirt seems a bit too pin-stripey. Almost looks blue from afar.

    Her shirt is much more bold in its stripes. Looks like big bands of green then brown, but when you look close at the second pic above you see three variants of green stripe, then a big faded brown band, some small pattern in there too. Very hard to cheat.

    But dying a shirt green is a good one -- maybe just find a much thicker pinstripe of white and brown and then dye the white to green. Might even be able to paint in the variant colors for those who want to get more accuracy. I saw a pinstripe shirt a while back that may work as a base for this approach.

    I'm also gonna ask about having a custom shirt made. For this particular figure, it might be worth getting the key item of clothing made right... the rest is a simple bash.
