Black Cat custom
« on: October 01, 2018, 05:16:22 AM »
I have always been a huge fan of Black Cat from Marvel. I get entranced by cat characters so easily XD
I really wanted a doll of her, but even though Marvel launched the doll line Marvel Rising, I dont expect them to make any doll of Black Cat for various reasons. So what was my only option? To make my own Black Cat custom! I had redesigned Black Cat since earlier to make her look a tad more modern so I decided to base the design on it. I used a DCHG Batgirl as a bait and reused her pants and mask, repainted her belt and shoes. I had to sew my own shirt for it...Im still not used to making my own doll clothes so its a bit shoddily made... I also added a hairband with cat ears from Catty Noir that I made a long time ago. The fur stole was from an Apple White and the rest of the fur was taken from an old stuffed horse. I had a small bell since earlier so I added it to a ribbon to use for the necklace. And then I finished it of with some rhinestones and a few fake pearl necklaces for her to "steal".

Thanks guys!
I love how she came out too. Although... I wish I could do her fur better, those pieces are very shoddy since I cant find any good fur fabric here in sweden... the only fur I find is too long, wrong color and extremely expensive...its extremely hard to find fabric for dolls at all... :(

That's pretty sweet, good job..  Just have to ask, "I also added a hairband with cat ears from Catty Noir that I made a long time ago."  You cut Catty's ears off to make the headband? lol

Beautiful! Nice work! And thanks for the rundown on what you did!

You said you'd already redesigned her...do you have artwork you based your custom on? Would you post it here, pretty please?!

In Sweden, might you have better luck with faux fur salvaged from human garments, like a parka or gloves?

Technically I cut of Cattys ears in order to make Patch Samhein, my daughter of the Pumpking king oc, but I didnt want to throw the ears away. I had a headband from a Spectra so I used it and stuck the ears on there. I was originally thinking that I could use the ear headband to make a Getting fairest Kitty Cheshire but I have still not gotten around to that so I used it for Black Cat instead.

Thank you. Yes, I do have art of it.

It's maybe not the best ref and it differs quite a bit but yea this is what it is based on.

Technically yes, it would be easier to find faux fur from old garments, but the problem is that they arent made for dolls so the fur is often rather heavy and rough. Pretty much the same issues as I counted up earlier.
