OMG THE DUDE WITH THE SUPERMAN TATTOO! I've had that model. He's a kind of weird guy, isn't he? I remember he once had a stuffed jaguar with him, which he called his "spirit buddy" and the teacher kept moving it because it was covering his feet and he was getting upset about that hahaha
"Beautifully Stunning" !!!!! ' Very much the Masters voice in these - Umm ' I have a Funny Feeling I've seen some of these Gorgeous works somewhere before , in my dreams perhaps....!!
