And so it begins...

The first painted coat of the Slim Goodbody costume started this past weekend, but need to go over it again in a few days to enhance each organ and start on the extremeties. I won't lie: the ladies'-sized unitard on my husband is, well, a bit *revealing* (nearly forcing me to paint a strategic fig leaf), so he'll sport bike shorts to maintain some level of dignity. 



I think it's coming together nicely despite my lack of professional unitard painting skills.  And by popular demand, the full pictorial scope coming up soon.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
I was wondering about the, uh-hmmm, coverage. I have a fig tree that still has leaves on it. We can send them your way :)
PS. I am very impressed by your organ painting skills.

Can I tell you how jealous I am of your husband? What a fun costume! Granted, I was terrified of Mr. Slim Goodbody as a child but now, wowza! I'd love to have that costume. Feel free to send it my way for next year's Halloween. :)
