12" Custom Streetwear Figures

Post by Haute_Hero » Thu Jan 21, 2016 3:15 pm

Hi Kidrobot Members

I am an artist based out of New York and after lurking the kidrobot boards for awhile I finally decided to post my 12" custom figures work. I was inspired by my time as a menswear designer for Converse Inc. For years I put tons of time and energy into designing edgy streetwear clothes I felt people would love to wear; only to see them throw out by the company. No matter how hard I pushed they just didn't get the culture. So when left I decided I would launch my own collection but on 12" custom figures! Not to long ago I went on a job interview for a major brand and I took my custom figure with me . After showing it to the VP of design he sort of paused and seemed confused. Looking back i'm sure he thought I was a complete nut case :lol: I didn't care though because I knew that the figure I held in my hand was far better than anything the company could ever produced.

Interesting!

Although, "thus the 1/6th scale fashion figure collectible was created" might be just a bit of a stretch. I remember a 1/6 scale skullhead set by Huck Gee with (4?) Barney's designers way back in the day, & there may be others (like ... Barbie?).

Maybe "thus his 1/6th scale fashion figure collectible was created" instead? Just a thought.

Good luck!
