Alpine and Cover Girl

VvV Alpine
A few years ago, I made a Valor vs Venom Tiger Force Alpine for Project New Sculpt that I worked on with bucky. I liked the recipe for that custom quite a bit, so I decided that it was time to make a proper version 2 of Alpine. When it came time to make the head, I was inspired by MSWI’s awesome custom Alpine, so I borrowed the Retaliation Clutch idea, as well as other elements like the straps on the belt and the accessories.

Head: Retaliation Clutch cast
Torso, arms: RoC Sgt Stone
Legs: Retaliation Kwinn
Rope: 50th Storm Shadow
Harness: PoC Snake Eyes

Cover Girl
Recently, a GI Joe buddy of mine asked me to make him an updated Cover Girl. He felt that the Club version had some elements that could be improved on. This custom borrows from several recipes that talented customizers have been using for Cover Girl in the last couple of years. Even though the pool of available female parts is relatively limited, I did my best to create something different. In the end, both of us were pleased with the result.

Head: Marvel Shanna
Torso, legs: RoC Cover Girl
Arms: RoC Helix
Vest: Indiana Jones
