Description
Penguin is my signature costume, when people first meet me I'm usually in this costume.

I decided to do him because I fit the bill body-size wise, and I have a pretty damned perfect penguin face!
I've /never/ seen a penguin where a lot of effort has been put into it, it always seems like it's a costume put together with an attitude of 'eh, it'll do', and I decided that I wanted that to change, so I've been building and building onto my costume so as to make it better and better, and I can tell you this - I'm still not finished!

Thanks for the kind words guys (well, gals).

Elle, the last picture is from Kapow Comic Con, I was up on the mezzanine floor of the building, when we were doing some photoshoots.
