Description
Who you gonna call when you want some Peppperoni?

The last time the original Wessex crew performed together, we decided to stage a condenced episode of the cartoon classic Samurai Pizza Cats, complete with 12' tall boss monsters, ninja crows and increadably bad rhymes.

About 12 people took part in this one, characters included;
Speedy Cervichi
Guido Anchovie
Poly Esther
Lucile
Bad Bird &
The Big Cheese

Quote of the skit:
"A pizza without a flower is like fanservice without a shower!"

The costume was a foam armour suit and reasonably straight forward apart from the helmets, which are domed and very stylized. The helmet probably took the main chunk of construction time but it was worth it as it came out really well.
The cats are somewhat super deformed so I looked a bit stetched in mine. I also lost all of the original photo's, hopefully I can patch the costume up and get some good perspectice shots retaken.

This group was so memorable, as was the hilarious skit. Are you bringing the Wessex funs to Minami this year?
