Vamp Willow and Xander

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
by yo go re

So, who wants to play "Mistress of Pain?"

When the Anyanka demon used the power of a wish to create an alternate world in which the Slayer had never come to Sunnydale, Buffy's impact on the town could be clearly seen; vampires ran the place, and everyone's lives were drastically changed. One of the biggest turnarounds had to be fuzzy, bookish Willow, who became evil. And skanky. And kinda gay.

Willow's gotta be my favorite member of the Buffy cast - I guess I've just got a thing for the shy smart girls who look incredibly hot with short hair. And while Moore Action Collectibles did give us a Willow figure in their first Buffy line (lo those many years ago), both her personality and her appearance have changed, so here's hoping we'll see a new version of her sometime soon. Someone else gave me the idea for this custom version of her, though, so I decided to try it out. Made from MAC's Willow and the X-Men Movie's Storm (gotta love those discount bins), the only major alterations I had to make were the red cuffs, and Willow's short hair and vampface - somehow a happy smiling Willow in her dominatrix gear just didn't seem right.

I found Xander on clearance with a damaged card, so I knew it was time to make a friend for little Willow. I painted his clothes black and carefully cut off the neck of his t-shirt; Vamp Xander wears a wifebeater. I gave him the appropriate demonface as well, and repainted his skin a lighter shade of pale. I used his included base, and wrapped his arm around his best undead girl.

Vamp Xander is 6" 1/2" tall, and has 15 points of articulation. Vamp Willow is 6" tall, has seven points of articulation, and is very, very bad. Oh, is she bad!
