I like the signature - Kelly Freas used to work his signature into his art similarly

I came to the How-To yesterday and was so inspired that I'm now on deviantART. Hope you have copies of the book at your booth because Victoria and Otto are fantastic! Thanks for sharing their story and yours.

I think this is my favorite work featuring Otto and Victoria: Most of the sewing I do is costume-work; and I have an 1874 Singer that I'm slowly restoring. Sometimes I wish that I had as many arms as Otto, though- it would make the projects go by faster, I know that!

I absolutely love the details in all of your pictures... but when I saw the "kesinger" treadle sewing machine I just about fell out of my chair. We have the exact same type of sewing machine! No octopus to help us, but it's still in working condition. :la:

I love how incredibly happy he looks. It looks pretty difficult to give emotions to an octopus.

Very nice piece. Cute, and somewhat sexy in an innocent kind of way, if you don't mind me saying. :)

A cephalopod capable of tailoring, riding a bicycle, and pacifying multiple suitors at once, and still not housebroken.

If that's not precious, then I know not what is.

A tiny thing, but it made me happy - using 'Kensinger' instead of 'Singer' on the sewing machine. You even got the filigree and the font right. So awesome. ^_^

Been browsing your gallery of Victoria and Otto, and I love all the little details you incorporate!
This Halloween I am being Odin of Viking mythology (not the one from the Thor movie, although that one's based on the original).

He looks like a wonderful tailor :) And I LOVE the sewing machine, it's so lovely! I'm anxiously waiting for my antique sewing machine to come back from the shop...I can't wait to use it!

For Halloween this year, I'm going to either be a Hobbit or an Elf! I've got two costumes and I can't decide :meow:

That is one adorable giant octopus! Last year I was a T-Rex in drag so I have to think of something funnier. Hmm. Anyway, i'm loving the textures and Victoria's cute bloomers ^^

Otto always looks so delighted, he just makes my day! Such a sweet little thing.

On another note, I was thinking about going as Annabeth Chase (from the Percy Jackson book series/universe), but nobody will know who she is until I go trick-or-treating, because of the different age groups that my friends are.
What's Otto going to be? PArt of me says that Otto should be a gentleman, complete with a top hat and monocle. *squees at octopus cuteness*

Very cute! Otto's so handy =)

I'm Australian and Halloween is very.... meh... over here. It's just something that happens in movies for the most part, though trick-or- treaters have started popping up in my suburb over the last few years. They tend to get muesli bars or biscuits from me 'cause I forget and that's all I have in the cupboard. Guaranteed if I actually remember and buy lollies no one comes :lol:

I really wish I had a domesticated cephalopod to enjoy my favourite holiday with. Sewing would be so much more enjoyable. Since you asked, this year I will be Selphie Tilmitt from Final Fantasy VIII. What are Otto and Victoria going as? (It would be funny for Otto to dress as a squid)

Since I'm on a low budget this year, I'm not what I'll be for Halloween (my favorite holiday as well lol).
