A few weeks ago, I decided to have a go at customising a Funko POP figure. Naturally, I wanted to try and paint one so that it looked like Feyre from A Court of Mist and Fury. For this weeks Weekly Feature, I’m going to give a quick overview of how I did it!
To start off with, I bought a Margaery Tyrell Funko POP as I thought she would be the most appropriate base for Feyre (sorry Margaery, I do love you, but Feyre’s just more important). I chose Margaery because of her hair colour being similar to Feyre’s, because her arms were bare (and I wanted to make sure Feyre had her arm tattoo on show) and because the shape and cut of her dress could be easily made into my interpretation of a Night Court dress.
Here’s the stages of the transformation from Margaery to Feyre (excuse the photo quality – I was in such a rush to get started that I almost forgot to take some before photos!):
To start off, I painted all of her hair a slightly redder shade – Margaery has light brown hair, and Feyre’s has a red tint to it. I then painted the black swirls up her arm for the tattoo that represented her and Rhys’s bond in A Court of Thorns and Roses, and pained the whole dress a dark blue. Once the dress was dry, I went over parts of it with gold paint and a very thin brush to add a bit of detail to the dress and make it just a bit more magical looking. Sharpies work surprisingly well on Funkos, so once all the paint was dry, I went over the tattoo a bit with a black sharpie to neaten it up, and did the same with a blue sharpie around the neckline of the dress.
Here’s a few more shots of the finished Feyre (the print behind her in the photos is by Charlie Bowater):
Hope you enjoyed this weeks feature – I absolutely love my little Feyre figure! I’m planning on making Rhysand to go with her, as soon as I can find the right Funkos for him.
