For the next TONMO convention I propose a poll whereby we vote which hat Erich should make to wear. After this years stunning ammonite hats, I think we should give Erich some guidance as to what he should make next.

Hmmm, well he's already made a vampyroteuthis, not a mask, but in paper mache....I have a picture around somewhere. SOS is too obvious, I like the nipponites ammonite. It kind of reminds me of Princess Leia, or is it Padme? But overall, I think I have to vote for vampyroteuthis, even if he has already made it. It's just soooo cute!

I say we make a Steve O/Mesonychoteuthis hybrid... I mean, he's got that 'stache, so we could make that into a rippin' set of tentacles - straight O.G. Cthulhu syle, yo.

Lifesize Giant Squid, for one wearer, kept upright by an ingenious arrangement of pulleys and string.

I wasn't going to ever make any kind of conclusive statement of my intentions on this thread, but in this case I'll make an exception.

Cephkid, you're a cruel, cruel young man. Not on your life.

Hm...perhaps a Haliphron atlanticus to warm up a bit before trying a Vampyroteuthis since nobody will EVER notice that the atlanticus doesn't look right as its looks do change as you stare at it from different angles.

I've just found this thread, courtesy of some poll on the home page!

Make the head and then belt it with a bat!
