At the risk of clogging up your inbox with tons of comments, I'll group everything into one place:

Your new Red Death costume is a masterpiece, and I mean that without a hint of exaggeration. Absolutely, mind-blowingly unbelievable. The craftsmanship, the detail, the artistry that went into that piece is staggering. You have so much talent and I am SO glad that you share it with us here. I've been ogling at those pictures for ten minutes!

Compliments from you are deeply, deeply honored!
 I am grateful that anyone here still remembers my work, as it has literally been years between posts. 

This project was truly special for me, not only due to the subject matter at hand, but it feels like a validation of the story that inspired me to become a designer. It means a lot for it to be appreciated by someone who has seemingly been touched in the same manner. Thank you very much.
