Horrified that the next Star Sapphire figure is going to be in that hideous costume, I searched about online and found the classic Star Sapphire action figure (which had ugly earrings, but those were a lot easier to cut off and paint over than fixing that dreadful costume).
When I took her out of the box the other night, I realized she was the same size as my Parallax/Hal figure. Then I noticed that one of her hands was outstretched, with the fingers spread like she was reaching for someone. And one of Hal's hands was open so that it could hold something, and that it fit perfectly to Carol's wrist.
About that time "Written in the Stars" from the Aida cast album hit my playlist. I got inspired.
I had to make a shadowbox. After testing out about five different background ideas, I settled on a picture from an old calender. For some reason, during the entire process my playlist was queuing up love songs. when I finally finished the whole thing (which involved searching for pieces from the base, and a lot more time that I thought it would) I was listening to a cover of "I Want You to Want Me."
Weird. Anyway, pictures:
And for some reason I'm fond of this one that didn't come out very well. It's kind of spooky and cool.
What do you think? Are they not just made for each other?
