I spent my entire weekend on the front.
Now both sides are painted and sewn together. All that is left is to make it fitted, sew in the zipper, and hem it.
At this point I am astonished at the paint job. It came out better than I hoped. I have a pic but I want it to be a surprise for D*con. I also get excited at this point that something like this can come out of fabric, tape, and paint.
