Gambit

from the pages of The Uncanny X-MEN ! ! !




his mannequin depicts the X-Men's mysterious Cajun card-thrower with the glowing red eyes.

This mannequin was built specifically for Tropic Comics in North Miami Beach. It stands at the door to greet guests by virtue of the speaker in his coat that I hooked up to a digital/programmable voice recorder chip hidden in a nearby cabinet. When the magnetic door switch is tripped, Gambit goes into his act. More than a few visitors have given him a double take (especially when he was programmed to say the classic 60's Big Bopper 'Chantilly Lace' song opener..."Hello Bayyy-Byyyy!").





  • Gambit has an all Spandex costume that has even more detailing under the thrift-shop trench coat with prototypical purple bars down both sleeves.

    Because his hands are fisted, I had to paint on the character's ever-present finger gloves. I also fully painted his face with the piercing red-on-black eyes.

    I crafted his wig to cover the molded on coiffure that the mannequin sports. A Royal Flush in Gambit's hand completes the ensemble.
