The making of a new lego pope:

This is a link to a high resolution picture of the design if you would like to try it yourself.

More underwear:

The printed hat:

The uniform ready to be put on:

Preparing the uniform:

Almost ready:

And the result:

The uniform is also useful for making priests.

Enjoy,

Wow, there is one heck of a lot of detail packed into that fig. It's so complex it seems perhaps too confusing to be easily customized. I'm amazed you managed to make it all out of paper, and still make it look crisp and LEGO-like.

A great job here. :-)

Ooo, a very nice custom there. I doubt I'd ever use it, but it's great for all those itching to recreate some scenes from Angels and Demons (book by Dan Brown).

Whoa, that's a lot of work!

I knew why I never started customizing minifigs, that's just too much hassle for me. But great work! *y*

Hey B,

You should use Emperor Palpetine's face 3626bpx34.jpg to get the REALLY aged look.

Indeed that head would be more suited for a pope.

But I already use that face for the chief of staff of Napoleon.

Maybe I could use the Vader-face for my pope?

Very well done at the customization Bonaparte. I definitly give you two *y* up. This minifig looks really *sweet* . What other minifigs have you customized? Model on.

Most of my older customs are American Civil war figs.

Now that the Minifig Customization Workshop is launched, I'll soon show some new work.

(Answering an old unanswered question is a perfect way to bring an old topic back *sweet* )

I like the work you did with paper. Paper is my second favorite medium after plastic. Soon, however; you won't need a paper hat for your Pope!

Thanks! And now you've made me curious...

Wow! That looks great!

Thanks ;-)

That looks excellent Bonaparte! *y*

I love the look, very wellmade, but still retaining a great, legolike quality. Good decision going with a dual layered clothing too.

I'd never thought of using paper, but the idea is so simple and you've executed it flawlessly from what I see. I'll have to give this an experiment, this forum has been dragging me in :-$

Nothing to Say, but Batbrick Away! >:-)
