At the instance of ReverendSpooky, I am sharing this rather incomplete project. After looking into the few options for a head of Famke Janssen to customize, I settled on Sideshow's rendition of her as Xenia Onatopp from that James Bond film with Pierce Brosnan. Here is what I had to work with:

The head was a bit on the large side, with somewhat elongated features and possibly larger jaws -- there was little I was going to be able to do about that. It also featured rather dark/contrasting makeup and lipstick, and an atypical for the actress hairstyle. I repainted the lips, eyes, eyelids, and eyebrows to match what we see in the X-Men movies more closely, and cut off the hair (like a wig), built a smaller cranium out of air-drying clay, painted that a dark red color, then covered that in Tibetan lamb hair from Morezmore. So I ended up with what you see in the following photos. Not sure I am done yet, although it is difficult to see what more I can do to improve it, besides finish the figure with more of the outfit (which I have currently misplaced). If she had black hair, she would remind me more of an entirely different actress, but I will not name her so as not to influence your viewing of the head.
