This week’s question comes from Christine Lloyd.

Part of the reason that Cockroach’s costume is so graphically appealing, is that I originally made him up as part of a role-playing game character. And, because I never do things half-way, I had to paint a miniature of the guy:

Comrade Cockcoach, Miniturized
The game did not require miniatures.

In any case, the resulting costume was one that could both be recognized on a sculpture an inch tall and effectively evoke such beloved D-List badguys like Batroc the Leaper. Also, there’s a big cockroach on the chest. As it should be.
