They seem to have done a really fine job with the paint, though I'm not so sure about the sculpt. I also wonder about how well this synthetic hair would hold up to handling.

There have been loads of sculpts of this character.... is she really that popular?

You read my mind! I was going to ask that very question when I first posted this. I’ve never seen this show, but I know there are a few other people on the show that I would think would be just as popular — like Jamie Chung, for instance.

Headsculpt looks identical to the Add Toys Magnetic Female UM Girl. Is it even out yet?
Maybe they cancelled the whole set and opted to sell just the head.

The nose bridge seems a little wide, but I like it overall. I like that they are going for a less standard expression.
The hair looks like straw. But maybe that can be helped.

I haven't seen the show, but I've encountered at least five headsculpts of this character now and I still don't like the look of that green hair at all. Not just the texture, but the colour.... blergh.

The texture of the hair at least could be improved by replacing it with tibetan lamb hair, if one were so inclined.

Hahah same!
And I also don't like the face, they eyes seem so wide and everything looks a bit strange. At least from a front view.

does at least offer a 'plain dark' haired option, and it's the least 'smirky' version I've seen so far. Still looks a little 'off' somehow, though.

I'm very much on the fence with any of them, to be honest - one for the 'if I have a spare £25 some time, maybe' pile.

Yeah, you are right, that one did have a range of non-green hairstyles, but I think the face on it seems rather stylized. Which is not always a bad thing, but I just don't currently have a use for something that.

The actress herself is pretty stylized.

She definitely has a unique looking face, which makes sense that it would be somewhat hard to capture in 1/6 without at least some stylization.

I actually think she has a gorgeous face, because it is quite unusual AND pretty, so I jumped on the original green haired head sculpt. But... somehow I always keep others on display.

Since I should be getting Selene today I'm thinking a new photo shoot is in order. Time to take stock of my head sculpts. (It's not that many yet.)

The actress herself is pretty! I just haven’t been all that keen on the various headsculpt depictions, but that is just down to personal preference. This one is not bad necessarily , it was just kind of baffling to me as to why there were so many sculpts of this same character and yet none of them looked the same as the other. It seems like the actress is hard to capture.

I do agree with what Lynkhart said in one of the other threads that the head could be used for a custom book-based Tonks figure from Harry Potter. Though if I were making one I’d still probably change the hair colour, lol.

Looking forward to your photo shoot!
