Achoo Pikachu

    Prev Next

    At the end of last Sundays bike ride I ran into a garage sale that had this nice big hard plastic Pikachu.

    Perfect target.

    They wanted 2$, but when I told them I was going to blow it up for a picture, the kid who owned it said alright for one buck.

    I filled it with red gelatine, crossed my fingers and fantastic, it turned out great.

    With the violence of these shots, micro-phonics is a constant problem. I had one shot fail tonight because of it.

    But this one went just fine.


    Hollow, atomicthumbs, Sea Moon, and 47 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      This time, you have not just shattered an object. You have shattered the hearts of millions of children.

      Grant is a Grant,

      And just what have millions of children done for me?

      (Just kidding).

      Sea Moon,

      I'll grab it.

      On my actual want list is a full size Rubics Cube and a Buzz Lightyear.

      Winter is a slow garage sale time.

      But I have patience, I will wait for my little victims....

      Fit to burst... And he has! I wonder if the kid who sold it to you has seen his dollar's worth ;-)

      You know what I am talking about, when you look at the camera LCD and you say...yes.

      It's a good feeling because you know its just going to get better with a little touch-up.

      +1 for a Barney. Hell, if you promise to blow it up and post it, I'll buy you a barney and send it to you. (My kids went through a Barney phase. I thought he should have been named Smarmy the dinosaur...)
