Delirium of the Endless. She used to be Delight but something happened to her that made her into Delirium. She is the youngest of the Endless.
My interpretation of the anthropomorphic personification of Delirium has the odd blue and green eyes and multicolored hair that Delirium exhibits in some of the later comics. I also chose to make her less of a hippy and bit more of a riot girl.
This figure is actually about 9 inches tall which makes her look considerably younger than the other Endless. I will post a group picture when I have enough of the Endless customized or kitbashed to do so.
Here is a view of the back of her head to show that there are actually many colors in her hair. My version also has a couple of random braids made from different colored strands of hair.
Here is a close up. I may add an eyebrow and ear piercing later on. Of the Endless, Delirium's appearance seems to change the most.

I have a great appreciation for well written comics. One of my favorite is Neil Gaiman's Sandman. I decided to come up with my own custom Death figure in 1/6 scale.
The body is a Volks doll painted white. I also used various clothing from other figures that I had for the boots, pants and shirt. I found the Ankh at a bead store.
Here is her profile. Although Death's appearance changes slightly from chapter to chapter of the Sandman. It also changes depending on what time period she appears in. I tried to be as true to the comic as I could.
Here I have posed to the figure as if she were saying, "Take my hand."
My plans are to kit bash or customize a figure of Delirium. I think it would be great to someday have figures of all of the Endless in this scale.
