#StarWars #Custom Of The Week: #Ahsoka Zygerrian Slave By Elias
Bespin refugee - September 03, 2017



This week's custom is Ahsoka Zygerrian Slave by Elias

Here's the story behind it:
"One of the best ways to spend my vacation this summer has been taking the time to create some of those action figures that I've always wanted. During the school year, it is hard to tackle the more involved projects, so as soon as the last day of class rolls around, my mind starts to dream of all the toys I'd love to add to my shelves. My latest figure was at the top of that list. Many times I heard my dad say that he wanted to make this version of Ahsoka, but after watching the Zygerrian arc recently, I decided that I was going to beat him to it.

I remember a time when I never would have had the courage to take on such a monumental task, but after tackling my custom action figure of Riyo Chuchi, I had the confidence I could really create something special with this Ahsoka, and I couldn't be happier with my results.

To complete my goal, I sculpted onto the body of a Clone Wars Aayla Secura action figure as well as the head cast of the Clone Wars Scuba Ahsoka. I switched out the feet of the Aayla Secura and swapped them for the feet of a Vintage collection Slave Leia.

The skirt I fabricated with ProCreate that I rolled nice and flat with an old pickle jar that was sitting in our sink. I wrapped the legs of the figure in saran wrap to prevent the ProCreate from sticking to the figure where I didn't want it to.

I was always really intimidated by ProCreate because of the quick dry time. Especially since I consider myself to be only a beginner when it comes to sculpting. It wasn't until I made the skirt on this figure that I gained a new appreciation for the sculpting medium. It has the same flexibility of soft rubber, which gave Ahsoka's legs all the range of motion that I desired without having to deal with the unruliness of soft goods, keeping the lines of Ahsoka's silhouette exactly the way I wanted them to look.

I want to give a special thanks to my dad who made Ahsoka's soft good cloak for me so I could post my figure today in time for the weekend. I'm not sure I would have completed the project in time if it weren't for his help.

This is by far one of my all-time favorite customs, and I haven't been this proud of myself in a really long time! Hope you all enjoy!
