General
Time Taken : 2 weeks

Description
Worn at LFCC on the Saturday.

I'm really awful at getting into character - I was enjoying the day so much that I was all smiles and couldn't pull any serious faces!

Hope to remake some parts of it before I wear it again, like the bites and tidying up the boots. Perhaps some bigger guns would be good too.
The wig was great - I was asked if it was my real hair loads of times :)
