With all of our work on Charlie’s costume this weekend (which turned out really nice, and he only has to do some small detail work and paint it) we were left in kind of a time crunch to get our costumes done. Here’s… Continue reading This is what the day/week before a convention looks like.

I mocked up materials and drawings using stuff I could get my hands on and just could not find anything that would turn out really clean.
