They’re Real and They’re Spectacular

This may be an inappropriate post, but I have to brag a little. I should’ve last October when I made the most AMAZING costumes for me and Batman (we went as Helga and Arnold from that classic 90s Nickelodeon, Hey Arnold!) but I wasn’t blogging much then—like now—and I didn’t post any of my costume picks. But I can keep my October New Year’s goal and show you what I’m working on now. Ready for this?

Cartoon testicles! Yes! I made Batman a pair of nuts! And I am *oh so proud* of myself because up until a couple days ago, I wasn’t sure how I was going to pull it off. There’s more to this costume than just the family jewels, but I had to get this part out of the way first. And to answer your question: yes, I did research different ways to make cartoon testicles on Pintrest. It wasn’t quite my search topic, but… I took a stroll down other peoples’ imagination on the subject and man, people get creative.

This has nothing to do with writing other than I keep taking a break from my WIP to look over and see the pair. I mean, come on. Is this not distracting:

So, I’m at a critical part in the second book (again, no one’s read the first) and I have a bridge to jump from where I am to the cloudy ending I see. I’m a Panster, so I have no outline, so I keep looking up and thinking. Then I look over to this part of the room. Then to that part. And then my eyes land on Batman’s prized possession and I smile. Even if I never become the fabulously amazing author it’s obvious that I will be, look at what I accomplished.

If only my A.P. teachers could see me now.
