DARTH DADDY's CUSTOMIZING CORNER: Stitchfett Custom Figures

Darth Daddy's Customizing Corner featured Star Wars customizer Stitchfett in his latest post over at The Star Wars Underworld.








I came across the work of Yovitt Planadeball a.k.a Stitchfett while searching around on eBay a few years ago.  I was trying to find cool Star Wars custom action figure auctions to post to my blog's Facebook page and I saw that Stitchfett had created a unique figure in a style that I had never saw before. Something Stitchfett has labeled as the Microman series. His action figures have incredibly good articulation and also come with assortment of interchangeable hands.

That's when I reached out to Stitchfett a native of Puerto Rico.  Stitchfett will surely tell you that there is a time when a kid is supposed to grow up, mature and get rid of his toys... well, Stitchfett didn't quite do that and that's how he ended up the man he is today. He still remembers using toilet paper dowels, card board & clear blisters to make ships, painting his figures with Testors paints, and playing with them under his bed. His advice to beginner customizers, the secret to success is practice. By failing, you discover new techniques that no one else could teach you, but most importantly... it's about having fun!  Great advice. I couldn't agree more.
