Christmas traditions WIP 1

My in-laws have a tradition of passing off a joke gift to all the male adults. Someone (it’s forgotten who originally was gifted with the slippers) got a pair of knitted size 14 slippers (my in-laws are all over 6’5, I’m the short one at 6’2) in white, orange, and green wool. They are U-G-L-Y. This person then added a small change, like a patch, to each slipper and re-gifted it. The tradition continues. Each time someone has to add something to the slippers related to an interest. There’s one more person I can give these to before it becomes random (or someone else marries into the family or comes of age).

I wasn’t kidding when I said these were UGLY.

 

I will also be painting a few Reaper Orc minis at the same time. That’s right, I’m safety pinning a painted plastic minis to each slipper (one Sniper, one Marauder).

These need to be done quickly so… weekly updates for you. I also never posted the finished version of my cultists, so I’ll post those soon too.
