This, I'm actually not very sure about, since we had agreed to actually deliver the gourd *at* the convention.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:

Pros: Altogether, it was a very accurate piece. I was elated when it was finally delivered, and had even worn it around the convention without my costume on. The details were airbrushed on, at it was made very lightweight and fairly durable. It also had a consistent shape and paint job, and I feel confident when I say that it was the *best* gourd at the convention.

Cons: While it was very durable, the fact that I am a very fidgety, run around person (and everyone and their grandmother felt the need to slap it) the gourd broke in the middle.

HOWEVER, Troy was more than happy to take it right back and fix it up, and while I have long since retired my Gaara costume, the gourd still sits in quite good condition in my room.

Final Grade: A

LOL Thats supposed to be me. Kanira if you could change the name on the front page from my real name to my handle here that'd be great, thanks. Silly Jess
