|I accept dares. And then I fulfill them. |
That's how Catbus started, a dare on an IRC channel from a friend, made in a moment of joking, and then I proceeded to built not just a costume.. but a dodecasuit. He's got 12 legs, only 4 of which are powered by me, an inflateable tail, a collapsable bus section, light up eyes... there's a lot to this cat!
He's so big, in fact that it takes two people to get him packed and onto a train! He was made for London Expo 2008 and took first place in the Saturday Masquerade. I will happily answer any building questions about him, and hope to take him somewhere again one day.
