And yes, it's my favorite Romana outfit as well. First on my list for a proper Romana release, should one ever come.
Wouldn't go so far as to call it my favourite, but I do like it.
What's your favorite?

My top five Romana II potential-figure faves that I recognize we will probably never see:
- "Destiny" pink Tom-style outfit
- "City of Death" schoolgirl get-up
- "Leisure Hive" classic swimming costume
- "Horns of Nimon" equestrian gear
- "Shada" white and red dress and hat brouhaha
My favourite is the Full Circle outfit, red skirt, fancy red jacket, white lacy top, green boots, really love that one. Leisure Hive is my second favourite, then probably Destiny third

Apropos of absolutely nothing, I'd just like to share a couple of my customs from past and more-recent times. They're creations I thought were particularly clever, and while I'm not great artist, I'm pretty proud about how they turned (or are turning) out. I know they're not as good anything CO would ever put out, but my fingers are crossed that some day we might -- Kroll willing -- get some kind of official release.

Remember when a fan's title sequence was picked up on by the powers that be and was turned into an actual title sequence.....

Wonder if anything like that could ever happen with figures?

Here's a little work-in-progress proof-of-concept "Shada" Romana. Used an Amy Pond head first because I didn't want to carve up a real Romana II head unless I was absolutely sure it was necessary. (Hence the weird extraneous divot in Romana's head just below the hat.)

Obviously some neck surgery would be needed if I stick with Amy, but I'll see how the neck situation shapes up when I use the actual Lalla Ward.

Not bad. I hate that my white paint has a tendency to bunch and flake in rubbery ways. Gonna try to figure that out before it's done. Otherwise, not bad.

Sadly, Al said CO can't do an Idris-to-Romana repaint, so this one may escape the reality bubble.

And if anyone has any suggestions on how to smooth out this damn white paint, I'd be much obliged.
