HENCH 4 LYFE

[circa SDCC 2011]

1 June 12

I actually made this two years ago for SDCC 2010 to wear with AK’s Dr. Girlfriend costume; however, aside from the crown and leotard, I wasn’t able to finish the rest of my costume in time before my flight to San Diego. To this day, I still have yet to finish the boots, gloves, and choker.

One of these days, I’ll get around to it. Though at this point, I’d want to redo the leotard and the crown, so the issue is not so much about finishing a couple of accessories, but remaking an entire costume.

These are my grown-up dilemmas.

naimcfly said: I'm not sure if you caught it but they were showing clips from the AS Costume Contest as commercials on tonights Venture Bros marathon and they showed you guys in full hench! It was awesome!

OMG! Unfortunately, Wayne Tower is cableless, but I heard about our appearance from soulbots and a few others! I’m going to keep an eye on BumpWorthy to see if our bump shows up.

Thanks so much for the heads-up! :D
