    Been doing alot of research lately on the various X-Men characters and their various costumes. I came upon a version of Psylocke that I forgot completely about from her appearance on Wolverine and the X-Men. This version takes a little of her classic costume and mixes it with an Asian styled dress.

    Head: DCUC Raven with a completely revamped hair do and facial paint apps
    Body: DCUC Raven with added piping and neck, arm and thigh straps

    Gave her the usual prep work, then a new paint job to finish her off.

    Thanks for looking!

    Looks like the cartoon version (esp. since Psylocke isn't in the comic)

    Nice job!

    That looks awsome. The psyche effect really adds to the custom

    Only problem is she didn't have a sword in the show. Mixing the 2 costumes together, I don't know not my kind of thing, though I do like how you brought her psychic powers to life.

    Here is what the figure is based on:
    Wolverine::p sylocke 1 by ~KidKalig on deviantART

    She has a sword but I don't see how that is a problem. Its liking saying that giving the 2002 heads with the Masters of the Universe Classics figures is a problem. By giving her (and the MOTU figures) options it lets the buyer place their figure in new and dynamic poses that may not be fully realized if these accessories were never given to them.

    Thanks for the comments.

    because the character never was a ninja in the series shinobi, she was just a psychic simple as that. She had like 1 appearance in the show and no references were shown to her weapons skills except for a telekenetic blade when she batteled emma frost! If you are going to do a x-men do it to the right universe. Wolverine and the X-MEN is a different universe to of which that psylocke is based in and it's not giving them new accessories and giving the poses to be at all. You're going of fan art not official art, if the character was fan based one far enough but she's not and it never was, you should of researched properly on this character.

    I do my Marvel characters research very thoroughly and when I try to create a figure I want to add a little something to it so its just not a chick in a dress.

    Did she use a Kitana in the show? no, did she the MvC Maelstrom attack, no. Were they fun to make and add a little something extra to the figure? yes
    If whoever ends up with the figure is a stickler for Universal perfection then they can throw the added pieces away for all I care. I just added these for fun anyway.

    Heres a clip of her fighting Emma in this costume:

    Here ya go:
    Psylocke (comic book character)

    Everything ya need to know about Betsy.

    They never said she didn't know how to use a sword in the show neither did they say she didn't. And just remember that just because shes English doesn't mean she can't be of Asian decent.

    I think the work looks great. "Show accuracy" or whatever, I couldn't care less. If Shinobi wants to give her a sword or a balloon gun, he's certainly free to do so. No one here has to like that choice either, and one is free to civilly insert criticism. However, there's no need to keep :horse: 

    Be respectful and post respectfully, or move on.

    I like it, would have given her the psychic blade though, and she looks too old, but the custom work is solid as always
