Welcome! I used to customize, (as in slice 'n dice) but have reformed into a purist. I only used "custom" pieces if they are already broken or if I already modded them. Here is a little more about me:
Things I like:
Guns, Lego, Lego City, innovative building, great MOCs, movies, comfortable chairs, sushi, pizza, slushies, junk food, etc.
Things I hate:
Clonetards (or Clonetardism, as I put it) Halo Kiddies, bad color coordination in MOCs (I can't stand it!), people who rip off from the 'pages, and feta cheese (ew).
