The Orc costume is almost done. Tunic is complete and the breeches are all seamed up. Just need to put the elastic in the waistband and "distress" the hem a bit. Pics will be coming in a few days (want to get the full effect with the make up and everything).
Went to the plastic surgeon today. Turns out the ER doc was wrong (according to the PS) - no 3rd degree burns, just bad 2nd degree burns. Which is really good news - no need for skin grafts or anything like that. Everything is healing up nicely and should continue to do so.
