by the power of greyskull

it's that time of the year again...the obligatory halloween post:

for a few years now i've wanted to get a group together to be he-man characters. i claimed teela - the head of the royal army and had 2 others join my crew: he-man & the sorceress.

first off...reference photos...
teela. action figure & cartoon. i went for a hybrid of both.
the sorceress & he-man.i was quite proud of myself to have busted out my sewing machine that i don't know how to use. my roommate kelley gave me a tutorial, and holy craft! i sewed! he-man & battlecat over saw the process.
i built teela's snake battle gear out of cardboard & duct tape. i saved a bunch of toilet paper & paper towel rolls to make the cobra staff and edging on the armor.
a couple of crafternoons later and here we are...
miss amelia as the sorceress, me as teela, and miss whitney as he-man himself.
snake battle gear.

it's perfect. you guys look great!

also, i think you are one of the best actors of my generation (next to Nicole Vanderhoff from Reflections of Evil).

you are the female Charlie Chaplin, and it's nice to watch comedies that don't make me feel like i'm daywalking through a mainstream nightmare. thanks for creating pure entertainment. nice job on the arts and crafts too.
