A month ago*, I opened my mailbox and discovered this package from fellow Friday Night Fighter, web-comic artist
, girlfriend of Corduroy Turtle
, and all-around kickass Dtoider COM 01
Now, I had been warned that she would be sending me... something, but I had absolutely no idea it would be this fucking awesome:
Yes, those are hand-crafted, miniature replicas of Gordon Freeman's iconic crowbar (rattle) and headcrab from the Half-Life universe!
But just how miniature are
these replicas, you ask?
That's right; baby sized!
(Sorry, but this is the closest to the HEV suit I could come up with.)
was surprisingly receptive to playing dress-up, even going to so far as to showcase some of her Combine fighting styles:
Immediately (*cough* three weeks *cough*) after this, we dug a bit further into the box and found probably the greatest gift of all:
A baby-sized replica of my own pink robe!
Like father, like daughter?
I'd say so!
COM 01, I've thanked you several times already, but I can't say it enough: this is one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me. You are truly a talented, kind soul, and Corduroy Turtle absolutely does not deserve you!
Thanks so much!
