Description
I really, REALLY want to do Viral, whether it's for Ame or an Expo. Hopefully I can get a group of GL coplayers togethor too, as several friends have also expressed their own interests. X3

At the moment, its really just a possibility, but I've put it up here because I figure that having the web space for it, with ref. pic sna d an icon and everything, might kick my a$$ into gear a bit and I may actualy start! XD *fingers crossed for this one*

Moe Viraaaaaaaal~ <3

~~~~~~~~~ EDIT (Jan 09) ~~~~~~~~~

Okay, Viral is ON. However, even though Im starting work on him, I'm still leaving it a little while longer before deciding on which version he will be; short-haired Moe Viral with bandages or Time Skip Hobo Viral. Either way will be fun, but it depends on the decisions made by others in my group. ^_^

~~~~~~~DOUBLE EDIT~~~~~~~~

Doing Hobo Viral. XD YOSH~!


~~~~~TRIPLE EDIT~~~~~~~ (2010)

Hobo Viral was eventually worn at Amecon 09 with a 2 friends as young Simon and Timeskip Rossiu.

THEN was re-worn for KITACON 2010 where we had nearly a complete group of protagonists and antagonists. Was truly, utterly EPIC! Thanks to everyone~ <3

Oooh, if you're going to Amecon 08, you have to do Viral. I'll be doing Kamina on the same day. It'll be interesting to get those two together =p

How did you make those hands? ^^

Aw, thanks all!

@Chibi; Well, I went and bought a tub of latex so that I could cast a mould then make a set of Viral-like paws from scratch. I had it all planned out in my head and everything.

....and then I saw the most perfect pair of 'witches hands' on eBay. XD
So I just ended up using the latex to paint them the right colour!
