Hit a bit of a snag on my husband's Orc costume. I burnt my left hand badly last week - 3rd degree burns on multiple fingers and on the pad of my palm. Spent most of the week with my hand wrapped up in gauze. You never realize just how handy a hand is until you have one that can't really be used - especially when it's your dominant hand.
It's getting better now and I can use all of my fingers pretty well. Well enough to get cracking on this costume anyway.
