Weekly Feature V - Custom Feyre Funko

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.

Is there anything you would have done differently? Let us know what you think!



  1. ITS AMAZING!!!! The base looks like Feyre at the spring court and then you transformed her into Night Court Feyre!!!!! I love it!!! If you make more, I would love to buy one too :)

  2. This is amazing! I'm going to do it immediately :)

  3. Have you tried finding a Castiel funko, There's one of him with his angel wings, It might be a bit difficult to transform into Rhys but perhaps it's worth a try?

  4. Love it so much!!! what type of paint did you use??

  5. Love it!!!! Can't wait to try!
