Here.... here is my personal pride and joy! AND HE'S AN ALCOHOLIC. *sniff sniff* I'm such a good parent.
This is Lou!
You may have seen him running around FC this year and boy is he fun to wear around! Ive wanted to make him for about five years and only now have I had the chance to make him. The suit was made in my 'spare' time prior to FC and was started around the second or third of Jan, was finished about seven minutes before I packed him up and headed off to the airport! I blame ifus for giving me the 'idea' that I should make him as it came from a silly conversation about the con and 'You should SO make your Bou' before you go!' hahah hah HAAA. I was finishing BMW at the time and that suit was NUTS. Then, started in on Lou, THEN Tojo came over and is all 'WE NEED TO MAKE FEETY PAJAMAS!' Needless to say, it was a busy busy busy time before FC. BUT He got done!
The suit features:
Revamped body padding style, going back to the old school as it works better, is lighter, more durable and easier to work with.
Revamped body venting under the arms, back of legs, neck and back.
Carbon Fiber hooves 'which where a pain in the ass'
Heavy Duty Vinyl horns and hand hooves
Updated head internals
Interior pockets for room keys, wallets, etc.
The ability to drain your bar-stock in almost a single sitting.
Minus the horns, the whole suit weighs in at a featherweight 11.5lbs. Horns add an additional two.
