Forgotten Heroes 2018 - Chastity Marks

Here I present my entry for the Forgotten Heroes 2018 challenge - another favourite vampire of mine, Chastity Marks.
Before I show my finished entry I thought you'd like to see just how I converted this Copplestone Castings Bodyguard in Bikini into Chastity. Working down from head to feet, I had to restyle her hair. This wasn't too difficult as it just involved adding Milliput with no filing or cutting required. I added a bit of Milliput to her upper arms to represent her long gloves. I turned her bikini top into a bustier top by adding more Milliput below her breasts and to the middle of her back. In the first picture of  Chastity that I showed you in my introduction, she was holding two katanas, so I added a second katana to her left hand. I had to remodel her left thumb to fit around the hilt of the katana. Next I added the tops of her thigh-length boots. Finally, I added a bit of Milliput to cover up her toes. All in all, it wasn't too difficult a conversion.
And here she is completely finished and ready for action. I did wonder about whether to paint her clothing in satin black or gloss black. Either would work. In the first picture I showed last time her clothing was satin black but in the second picture it was clearly gloss black. Ultimately, I thought gloss black looked better and so that is what I went with.
With so many other projects on the go, I knew I didn't have that much spare time to devote to this project but I knew that converting one figure was easily achievable, and I'm delighted with the result. Roll on Forgotten Heroes 2019!

    1. That's most kind of you, Andy. Yes, the conversion didn't stretch me too much.

    1. Thanks, Phil, and you do have my sympathies. Whilst I do find conversion work quite easy, I have been doing it since the late 1970's!

    1. Thanks for the nice comment and for reposting this on the official FH site, Roger. Just one small point - it's "Chastity" not "Charity". ;-)

    2. Ooops, maybe it was here costume that threw me, she doesn't look that Chastised (though I am now), and as we all know Charity begins at home, and I wouldn't mind her round my house!

      (phew think I saved that one!! ;-) ).

      Cheers Roger.

  8. Good stuff Bryan, thanks for the unpainted but converted picture, it helps a lot to see how you did it.
    It makes quite a difference in a subtle way, especially like the hair.
    Cheers
