So we watched dvr'd Robot Chicken and (proof I love my husband) Without Reservations and *did not* watch the copy of Slayer, even if Caspar van Diem is cute (30 seconds in -- *pre title sequence!* -- and I said forget it).
No, I really love my husband because I'm designing a prop for a stage fantasy at the Alameda County Leather Corps contest in 2 weeks and was dispairing on how to simply build the curved, padded "leather" doors for the prop (it's inspired by a certain scene in Barbarella), and he said... "I should have pointed out you were overcommitted when they asked you. But have you considered cardboard?"
Problem solved. A quick trip to the hardware store for the components that need to be sturdy enough to support weight, and the rest can be done with cardboard, batting, black vinyl and a staple gun.
Have I mentioned I love my husband?
(Oh yes... then I get to go back to Conrad and do some orthodontia and build a tail...but those mods are already designed)
