My inspiration for this figure came from seeing Jessica Nigri as Elsa in battle armor, which led me to Gladzy Kei’s original art that inspired Jessica. I used both the original art and Jessica’s costume as a reference. Used a DC Comics Teen Titans Supergirl as the base figure which requires some modifications, mostly adding a little epoxy sculpt for the edge of the armor and shoulder piece. This has been my most detailed figure that I painted by hand, and I think she turned out incredible.
You can see the progress, and there a numerous pictures, in my Battle Armor Elsa project.
Perhaps the greatest part is that Gladzy Kei liked the figure, so I sent it to her, the challenge of doing the custom is what I wanted.
K THIS IS COOL!!!! epic toys made a figure based on my battle elsa design! Sick!! — #Repost @epic_toys_ with @repostapp. ・・・ Supergirl no more, she is now battle armor Elsa!
