Here's the real reason I didn't upload many comics in October. Pulling this together took a while! I marathoned episodes of House while working on it, and definitely got through a few seasons in the process. Good thing my course load this quarter isn't too heavy!
The designs on the shirt and the socks are painted on; this was kind of a pain. The truss pattern on the crutch is balsa wood, masking tape, hot glue, and silver paint; this was a huge pain. The wig was initially pale blond, but I colored it gray; this was the most tedious pain of all. And yet, I enjoyed working on it all.
This being an original character design based on a rather unusual subject for a Halloween costume, I didn't expect anyone to make sense of it. I'm used to being obscure! The fact that one person did get it without me having to explain totally made my evening.
