Internet, meet Aholt:



Aholt is made of liquid awesome, as you can see Smiley  For Halloween, he wanted to be Evel Knievel, and I helped him alter his costume (it was crazy hard to sew, it's made of solid pleather!).  You know how sometimes a Halloween costume is kind of an extension of your personality?  For him, Evel kind of supplemented his usually calm personality, and he had a blast on Halloween being crazy Smiley  Since then, we've kind of made Evel jokes back and forth, so I made him a set of 4 Evel Knievel rocks glasses for Christmas.



Two of the glasses say "Evel" in that kind of giant Elvis font, and the other two have all American stars and stripes Smiley



Some of the etching came out a little dodgy, but I think it looks distressed, which isn't a bad thing I guess..  ideas?  I wiped all my fingerprints off the glass before I used the cream, applied it really thick with a q-tip, and let it set for at least a minute:



Anyway, hopefully he likes them..  I'm not sure you could get much more manly if you put scotch in those bad boys!



Thanks for looking, Happy Holidays everybody!

The hardest thing was how freaking heavy that costume was!  It kept trying to drag itself off my sewing table, and stretched a bunch of the stitches..  yeah, never again Cheesy
