Take the single pack baroness and remove head....take sharpie marker and "color" green glasses black....take that head and place on 5-pack Baroness....See a sub-par figure turn excellent...Since I am a terrible painter and was afraid i would drip the paint all over the place, I gave the Sharpie a try...IMHO, it worked amazing and really is a major upgrade to the original Baroness figure...The bonus, the original head looks better on the single pack. Try it and let me know what you think..

This version with the green glasses also looks ALOT better if you color her lips red, and with a fine point black sharpie just line the top of her glasses and the bridge(nose part) and shes cartoon acurate (the mass device)

I was thinking of doing the same thing but I ended up just switching the hair pieces (ie. I put the single pack's hair onto the 5 pack's head). I think yours looks nicer though.

The only problem with a sharpie, sometimes it bleeds into the plastic and then turns a purple color.. some have said sealing the figure, like you would do painted ones helps.. but I've never tried.. but still, that looks pretty sweet!
