Here are two photos I found through the Clubhouse's Model Museum.

Billiken Bride by John Comito; sorry for the size:



Horizon Bride by Jim Capone:



To me, the Billiken Bride is superior. Her features are sharper and her robe looks more natural. However, there's no doubt that they look similar. Price is a consideration; aside from a recent fluke eBay auction that closed near $100, I'd say you could usually find a Horizon Bride for $25 or less. The Billiken, on the other hand, would probably run at least $150.

thanks for the picture.
I have a horizon bride, but have never seen a billiken in person or in a close up picture until now.,
the billiken does look better than the horizon one, after seeing this picture.

I'd only seen pictures of the two before I was finally able to get a Billiken Bride for a decent amount. Haven't assembled or painted her yet but just looking at the vinyl and the pictures of all the Horizon buildups, I agree that the Billiken sculpt is the best.
