So excited to get my new Dead Leaf Mantids in the mail the other day! Don’t they look like little post-apocalyptic aliens? 
I have three pairs so I’m hoping to get at least one Ootheca this fall. 
Also got a Double Shielded mantis as well… I tried to get a pic of him but he was being too sassy. ;-)

A photographer friend of mine took this shot while we were at Pennsic a few weeks ago.

I’ve had a very sad week. And I also changed my hair color to bright orange. I must say, it is very strange to be sad and orange at the same time. :-/

Doing a major overhaul on my Predator costume today. Adding more armor, making skin gloves, and fixing my suit. But right now I’m just a weirdo running around in my underwear with a heat gun.
