Senni Tonnika (Kiffu Con Artist)

Senni Tonnika, and her twin sister Brea, are con artists who specialize in separating wealthy men from their credits. They were seen during the Mos Eisley Cantina scene in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

Parts: Head (Padme Naberrie), Torso (Princess Leia Organa from the R2-D2 & Leia 2-pack), Arms (Princess Leia Organa from the R2-D2 & Leia 2-pack), Legs (Princess Leia Organa from the R2-D2 & Leia 2-pack).

Supplies: Super Sculpey, emery board, file, brushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.

Reference: Pictures from The Star Wars Essential Guide to Characters and stills from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

Step One: I removed the soft-goods clothing from the Leia figure.

Step Two: Then I replaced the Leia head with the Padme head.

Step Three: Using the X-acto knife and file, I modified the hair and cheekbones enough that it did not look exactly like Padme anymore.

Step Four: Using Super Sculpey, I filled in the waistline where the Leia belt was. A little bit of sanding was necessary, to make the waistline smooth.

Step Five: Then I painted the figure according to the references and allowed it to dry completely.

Step Six: Finally, I applied a coating of Testor's Dull-Cote to protect the paint and reduce the shiny appearance.
