O Is For Oracle

O Is For Oracle

Posted to Flickr on 07 September 2009.

In the comic books Barbara Gordan’s career as Batgirl ended when her spine was critically injured by the Joker. Using her skills and training as a librarian she developed a new identity to fight crime: Oracle, the online information source for the superhero community.

This one-of-a-kind custom-made action figure was created by my wife. The head, hands, and shoes were taken from other figures and repainted. She sculpted and painted the sweatshirt and jeans. I made the glasses out of wire. The wheelchair, which she also repainted, is an accessory originally belonging to a wrestling figure. The figure is 4.75 inches tall.

Part of my Letter Of The Law series.

This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
