Here they are in all their evil. I mean glory. They don't look to evil to me. Famous last words?
So I decided to get it over with and start getting them drunk.
So a little Silver Wedding Vodka later, we're on our way to a new creation.
Here we have a quick snap after twenty four hours. Look at them getting all... Slutty. They seemed to plump up a bit. With these I was unsure if they would dissolve or plump up. I guess we know that answer now.
