As soon as I saw this contest, I knew I was going to enter the hero category as my first real attempt at minifigure customization. I love fun and quirky heroes, especially the Flash. I was a bit unsure at first about doing a speedster but then I decided what the heck, why can't Gotham have a speedster? So off to work I went. Her looks came partly from a character I'd posted before in my reviews here, and partly from my DC Universe character, but with a totally revamped costume (Pinktastic!). Her backstory was another thing entirely. I wanted to try and have a way for a young British (Aye, British because well, there aren't enough Brits in Gotham!) speedster to get into Gotham and one of the comics I'd fallen in love with recently gave me a way in! Knight and Squire are kind of like a British version of Batman and Robin, and get involved in Batmans affairs from time to time. As with most comic book British heroes, magic takes a big role and there was my way in! After that I just had to figure out a way to move her to Gotham. Waynetech seemed like a great answer, and it allowed Batman to keep an eye on her...which he does!

As this was my first proper attempt at customizing, I ended up going through a few torsos and legs experimenting with decals, but settled on Vinyl stickers in the end as I couldn't quite seem to get the gloss coat right. It doesn't look too bad however! :)

Cost: -

Mia Hair - £1.00

4x Black Torso - 4x 0.30 = £1.20

4x Black Legs - 4x 0.20 = 0.80

Surfer Girl Legs - 0.10

2x Dark Pink arm sets - 2x 0.60 = £1.20

Transfer Paper - £2.20

Vinyl Sticker Paper - £1.30

Final cost = £7.80 + the odd bit of decal fix and gloss coat.

Hope you enjoy it!

It's a great entry and everything, but what makes it really stand out IMO is the mock-up comic book cover! Fantastic job! Best of luck in the contest.
