You know, I don't think there's been a single posting in this gallery that hasn't at least made me smile happily upon seeing it. Many have caused maniacal grins, giggles, and in one case, head-clutching. What an amazing, brilliant bunch of weirdos you all are!

(And thanks, MicroJivvy for posting the hand picture. It re-set my sense of scale.)

Ahhhh, the perfect way to end the "story" of the tin!  Is a token from Circus Circus Casino?

I'm afraid it's a fake. Don't tell anyone, though.

The token is just a generic amusement arcade one, but I thought the clown gave it a certain something. I hadn't intended to verdigris it so heavily, but I forgot it in the solution overnight! I was horrified at first (it was my only one of those tokens) but then I realized it looks like something dug out of the ground. Maybe from a graveyard. I'm just sayin...

I think it looks fantastic. Please don't tell me you made the bars inside the tin from scratch as well. If you did, then I might just die. I'm humbled by your talent as it is.

Ah.  Usually a little verdigris goes a long way, but this is one of those cases where more is more - it's creepy in this context.  I think I have a token with a similar clown in my "collection" and I know there's a Circus Circus Casino token in there, but maybe I'm thinking of 2 rather than 1.

Oh my dear. Why could I not have come back snooping into swaps a bit earlier?! Amazing. Honestly creepy and amazing tins. I love them all. ^_^


Perhaps for the next one Wicked Mad Science tins? No matter the theme though I will be watching for it!
