Minifig Customisation Index

Welcome to the Eurobricks Minifig Customisation Workshop!  This is a place for customisers from all over to share their customs, WIPs, techniques, and products.  Minifig customs is a rapidly-growing aspect for Lego enthusiasts that has been garnering much respect lately in the AFOL community.

What qualifies as a minifig custom, you ask?  Well, anything from official Lego minifigs or minifig accessories that have been modified in some manner (such as cutting, gluing, painting, brassoing, decaling, etc.) to works that are entirely created by the customiser that are compatible with Lego minifigs, such as capes, hair pieces, or weapons.

So what's not allowed here?  
  • Criticizing the art of making customs.  Making customs is as much an artistic endeavor and can take as much (or more) creativity than purist work.  Simply put, if you don't like customisation, don't post here.  There will be consequences for blanketly criticizing the art.
  • Being extremely harsh or cutting with your comments.  Remember, everyone is at a different skill level, and nobody started out at the top.  If you can't offer constructive advice, then just hit the back button.
  • Posting other's work as your own.  You will get caught and it will end badly.  Besides that it's unfair to those who put the long hours and effort in to making a masterpiece.
  • Bugging people to make things for you.  There is an official decal request topic, so use that.  If you're really interested in someone's work, feel free to PM them to see if they offer their services.
But remember to have fun and let your creativity flow!  This forum is about expressing your passion for customising your minifigs to realize something that isn't possible with official parts.  Don't be afraid to post WIPs or ask questions, and remember to have fun!  Just remember when you post a WIP, to put WIP in the title.
