This was one of my very first custom minifigures, created as an entry for a competition on a certain forum. The competition involved creating a custom minifigure doing cosplay, accompanied by an 8×8 vignette.
This is the first of two ideas I’d had for the competition: the second was Custom Minifigure #2. I’d chosen that over this as at the time I thought it was a more interesting and head-turning idea.
This figure is basically a take on a “Sexy Stay Puft”: a female cosplay version of Stay Puft from the Ghostbusters movie, which to this day I’ve never seen done.
There was a little more work involved with this figure in terms of customising than with the other. As well as the torso decal – this time printed on waterslide decal paper with a white backing – I’d also created the scarf using sheet styrene, and added padding to the arms using white Milliput. The hat was a 1×1 round plate rounded with white Milliput, which was then painted and glued to the hairpiece.
The figure is accompanied by a minimalist rendition of the apartment where the closing scenes in Ghostbusters take place, off of which the figure can hang (resembling Stay Puft climbing the building).
