You guuuu-uuuys!  It was so quiet here in the gallery for awhile so I trained myself to stop maniacally clicking the REPLIES TO YOUR POSTS button and now I'm pages and pages and photos and photos behind!  ACK!

Sigh.  For starters: Holy Sense of Scale, Knickers!  I love how sneaky this is!  Oh look, it's tiny!  Oh look, it opens!  Don't look; she's falling!  I also just love the little canon.

Goatgoddess: LIGHT?!  For crying out loud, that's grand!  I love how you arranged for the stage and that the audience area (orchestra pit?) can be used by alteredmommie for stowing things!  And I'm enamored of the black and white stripes, too.

Wulf: So dark and lovely.  Sigh.  The swirlies at the opt of the bars are just fancy enough, just spare enough.  I can't for the life of me figure out where the spot that needed something was.  After reading about how you made the skeleton(s), I can't help but think you might actually be able to make a live being from a collection of carcasses.

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.
