She's the same scale as Cro-Magnon Woman, but what a difference. Base-coated in green to make her look something other than human, I sprayed a mild flesh color over that, careful not to let the second coat get too thick.
Silly Putty (remember that stuff?) came in handy when masking off her revealing body suit. I didn't get it quite right, but it saved a lot of trouble later on. Silly Putty is amazingly pliable and you can use it over and over again.
Future Floor-Wax (or its equivalent) is ideal to mix with acrylic paints to produce a smooth coat and achieve delicate water-color effects. This Vampy isn't perfect, but given what Moebius is asking for the kit, I don't think I'll try it again.
Of course, I have more than one Cro-Magnon Woman and the same techniques can be applied to those.
Very nice. And as to the price. I've noticed that is the only kit in the line that I haven't seen selling at a discount anywhere. All the others I have found at pretty cheap prices, but not that one for some reason.

Yes, very nice.
I have been struggling with deciding whether or not to get her. I got the one from Terry Beatty a few years back and don't know if I want this particular kit. Terry's is much, much better. The same goes for the Frankenstein Monster. Don't care for him either. Now I know there are replacement parts for him that would make him look fantastic but I'm not sold on the whole figure itself. Should I get both of them for nostalgic reasons?
I've got one, that I picked up at WF for $20. I want to get at least 2 more eventually.
I really want to get the one Terry did eventually. He quit producing them a while back. About every 6 months or so I drop him a line and see what the status is.
I've got 3 of the Franks. Wouldn't mind getting another 3 to have. Want to do a few different versions. The kit itself isn't great. But I think it's cool, especially with the glow plastic. And I have to have one to go in the Pain Parlor. And one to carry away a Victim. And a couple more for replacement set. Etc.
