    This is just great.
    I was out in the garage with plans to go get a slushy after not finding a single bug all day. Then BAM, I notice this huge earwig on the wall. I ran back into the house and got my camera, the Raid, and pulled some vines off the fence.
    I lured the freaky bug onto the foliage and then over to a piece of poster board to get some good pics.

    Mr. Terrible Bug immediately starts crawling for the edge of the poster board and I was stupid enough to block him with my hand.
    He flipped up into a little robot form and used his pincer weapon to clip my motherfracking finger off.
    Not cool.

    I snapped one last pic of him gloating over himself before I doused him in Raid.

    Good thing I'm a prostitute because missing this finger would suck if I had a job where I needed all of my fingers, like customizing action figures... or something.



    (last 2 pics were my main references)

    Dude, you are officially my favorite customizer for doing these. They are incredible, to a one.

    All I have to say is WHERE'S RETRAX?

    Well, no, it chopped his finger off. Were you not reading it? :p 
    This is why you do not mess with insects.

    Admittedly, this bug did look very cool, but still, cool does not equal friendly.

    I hope this doesn't affect your trade too much, Uni; I know some johns can be put off by that kind of thing.

    No a toy really lopped off my fanger.

    The wife sewed it back on, but a little crooked.

    Luckily they don't know me for my hands... Ok now I'm grossing myself out.

    Thanks for the kind comments guys. Looks like Powerpinch was my final bug unless I do a Transmetal. I planned to do Tripedicus but he is missing pieces.

    Ouch! That little bastard...

    Anyways, cool pictures, he's certainly an interesting specimen, but be careful next time, you might run into something even more dangerous!

    No more bugs. I have to get caught up on some commission work before doing anything else though.
    I'll probably post the group shot at Deviantart tonight.

    Thanks! Such comments fuel my stupidi- I mean, creativity.

    Thanky. Based on Powerpinch, which is who the base figure was, and what his name still is. Its just Powerpinch with more bug realism.
