salutations, fellow craftsters!  this is officially my first post to the forum!  i've been crafting like a madman all summer, but i've been saving up this first message for something unique.  after exhausting the pop tab bracelet and the pop tab belt, i set my mind to making a pop tab dress.  since i'm a counselor at a day camp, i've spent the last several weeks scrounging through the camp's recycling bins, bumming pop tabs off my campers, and saving them up at home.  six weeks and 1,328 pop tabs later, i'm at the almost-halfway point to what will someday be a full-fledged dress!  (at the quarterway point, it was very fleetingly a pop tab bikini top. :-P)  in the meantime, it makes for a super-fun shirt:


w00t scary tan lines!


hellooo boobs!  a torso close-up.





it's surprisingly opaque and actually fairly comfortable... well, as comfortable as one could possibly be covered in metal!  :-P

"Now," said Benjy mouse, "to business."
Ford and Zaphod clinked their glasses together.
"To business!" they said.
"I beg your pardon?" said Benjy.
Ford looked round. "Sorry, I thought you were proposing a toast," he said.
