Creating my Creature Part 6: Giving it Life.

The final (and shortest) part of the series! With all the bits and pieces complete, it was time to put on my creature's skin and give it a test run. Pure chaos is what it was. Wearing it and walking around made me realize that I really should not have labeled it as an outfit …
