    May be a good idea to use UV purple paint! That way if it's under a black light then it'll glow and generally be....well, pretty!

    well actually everything that is red or blue on him is now black with no flames with the blades and some other things being purple but that reminds me more of shattered glass prime hmm wonder if any ones done him from movie prime but that does give me an idea for the blades

    Well, it IS SGDOTM prime, but I liked the blade effect enough I wondered if it could work.

    Check out the Pirates of the Caribbean toys. The action figures have black light paint on them and come with a mini black light toy like a ring that you could use to make the paint glow. Gives them a skeleton look. If you used that in your custom I think that would work great for you. :D  :D
