The Adventures of Desmond: "Brotha Desmond"
I decided to recreate the "Adventures of Desmond"
in chronological order.
So we begin with Brotha Desmond.
The monk robe is from a Mego "Friar Tuck".
However, Desmond is much taller than Friar Tuck
so I added a pair of brown pants since the robe
was too short. Desmond's robe did not include the shawl
collar, but the robe is made of a cheap nylony fabric,
and the first robe shredded when I tried to remove it.
So it stayed in place on the second robe.
I used a piece of hemp cord as sash for the robe.
I scanned and miniaturized the Moriah Vineyards
wine bottle labels from my collection and attached
to some bottles I found on eBay.
