Munchkin Corset photos  
"Treasures are in the front. You kick open the door in the rear." ~ Steve Jackson

Munchkin Corset - front
Yes, it really is made out of paper. The bookmark sticking out of the top is the written permission/authorization from muskrat_john and Steve Jackson (owner/founder/etc of sjgames) allowing me to make this. Before you ask - I had permission to make only one of these. Unless they give me written authorization again, I will not make another.

Munchkin Corset - back
And laces up like a good corset should. Yes, it could be laced tighter, but I didn't want to find out where/when the corset would actually tear. (Because that would really suck.)

"Igor" and the Munchkin Corset. If you read/follow DorkTower comic, you'll know who Igor is. We love Igor.

Side Notes/Answering Questions:
- Wearing this thing, it wears like some sort of armor plating - or, Munchkin Plating - if you prefer.
- Yes, it's very comfortable to wear.
- If I get to do it all over again, I'll redesign the boob area. I really did not like how that turned out.
- I have no clue what I'm going to do with it, now that it's been made.
- No Munchkin game cards were ruined, abused, mistreated and/or mis-used in the making of this corset.
- There are no Munchkin Fu cards in/on this corset. Why? 2 reasons: a. I don't currently own any; b. muskrat_john didn't do the artwork on that set.
- There are no Munchkin Blender cards in/on this corset. Why? It's not a 'core' set.
- Yes, muskrat_john autographed it later in the day. No, not while I was wearing it.

Any comments/questions?

I'm chipper

Have you played that version of it, yet? Munchkin Booty, I mean? There are several cards you'd get a good laugh about.

Ok... I'll put that on the list of things to do with you. BUT! We'll need at least one more person to play. Maybe two or three, to really make a game out of it.

I've only ever played once. Right before I started gaming with my last D&D group I met them at a con, and we played Munchkins. I don't remember which sets, but there was more than one. I believe ninjas and samurai were involved. o.O

That's fantastic! Can't believe it's all paper.

Thanks!! The outer layer is all paper. I did fuse the paper pieces to fusible interfacing, to get the pieces to stay in place. There is a very lightweight muslin lining, to help support the outer layer. There are no stays or boning in it.

Many thanks! muskrat_john drew up a couple custom cards for it, too, so I could include them when I do play Munchkin again.

Do tell? Armor +3 while wearing the corset? Pray tell what else! :)

Cmerun12cmerun12 on October 25th, 2010 04:25 pm (UTC)
I think it's more like +5 if the corset is there; +10 if actually wearing it.

Wow... so it behooves the other players to strip your corset off of you, right?

Could be fun....

Only if they wish to lose their body parts.

Seems only fair.

"Munchkin" started out as a card game produced by Steve Jackson Games...


It's since expanded to a board game...

And once you get started, it's a whole lot of fun. The cards are worth reading, just for the humor factor.

Beautiful...simply beautiful.

And the corset is nice too.

Seriously, you make beautiful art, but you yourself are a beauty to behold and if you ever think less of yourself, pull out the first picture and just look.

I have spoken. So shall it be.

At Blizzcon this weekend, the opening ceremonies included a presentation by Chris Metzen that played to the power of geekdom. If he had known about this, he might have worked it in. Geek is!

Love it all. Love the first picture the most. Your smile is especially stunning and you look so beautiful. Does my heart good. Can you send this one to my phone so I can have it saved for your user pic?

Love you.
