This is my son's Halloween costume, which we've entered in the Halloween Comicfest's Costume Contest.  This journal is about the creation and tutorials in making this, plus my insights and adaptations.  The costume cost me less than $30 to make, not counting the supplies I already had.

I am easily amused by people being easily amused.  Thanks for all the funny.  Loved every bit, from playing with the garage tennis ball to your cat rubbing toys on his head.  Hope you guys enjoy your new home.

Pinterest Pet Peeve
I've started frequenting Pinterest a lot.  A lot.  Like a really whole lot, every day I scour through school resources.  So, naturally, I've developed a bit of a Pinterest pet peeve.  Broken links.  Or miscredited ones.  Such as Pinterest pins to a pinning ...

I've had a swatch of this printed and love the colors and texture of this material.  It's a poly blend that is durable.  I think if I won the 3 yards, I'd print my Murder of Crows pattern and stretch it and embellish with custom painting designs.  Or maybe a purse.  ;D

Anyways, great Sweepstakes.  Good luck to all who enter.  If you get my fabric printed, I'd love to see pics of what you'd make with it!

Wonderful of you to help your friend.  I'm glad so many people have reached out to extend help to him.  This looks like it's gone rather viral, it was just shared by Amanda Palmer on Facebook.  And over a million views in one day.  I hope the comments don't weigh to heavily, people are nasty, as illustrated in this film.  I hope Daniel will someday find peace with his family, that they may stop stewing in hatred and realize he is the same person he ever was before he came out to them.  Still, I'd suggest turning off the comments.

I'm a self taught artist, and I work in a myriad of styles and mediums.  Most notably would be my 'signature style' in metallic gel pens with abstract designs and patterns.
