Miss Switch figure by Gary Anderson. He followed the list of what I was looking for exactly. The other little added details (which is often where some artists can go wrong) were all perfect for this figure. Unfortunately I did not have any kind of mock-up in mind for a Jessica Rabbit figure like I did for Miss Switch. Whatever she ended up looking like would be it! I couldn't even get a clear image of it in my mind but I did have my Very Long list of things I wanted incorporated. This is where Gary's artistic talents show, bringing out something from this vintage figure I didn't see possible.
You can read Gary's process for making this vintage Peekablue figure into Jessica Rabbit:
To make her I used a vintage Peekablue figure as a base. Jessica is famous for her hourglass figure so I started by sanding down Peekablue’s waist as thin as I could get it. I also sanded off her bracelets and boots. After that I sculpted her chest and glove tops using a product called ‘Fixit sculpt’. I also gave her more rounded hips with a little lip underneath which I will place her skirt later. This will prevent the skirt looking bulky around her waist.
After cutting off Peekablue’s original hair, I then re-rooted her some new nylon doll hair. The color of her new hair is called Tigerlily. The next step was to paint her body, which I did using Humbrol enamel paints. I also bought some fine, deep pink glitter which I used on her bodice. I then coated the glitter with layer of gloss varnish.
After the paint and varnish had dried I added a little pink craft gem stone just below her chest. This was a nod to the vintage She-Ra figures. I then made the skirt part of her outfit using a deep pink glittery fabric. To complete the figure I repainted her face, trimmed her new hair and styled it using the boiling water method.
