Why I chose to be GIR
I am a fan of Invader Zim. My hubby introduced me to it years ago and I still love it! I think the thing that got me thinking about GIR is the ease in which I could envision a gijinka version. I almost instantly saw goggles for his eyes and it all fell into place from there.
I initally thought it would be fun to just paint some goggle lenses the right color and keep them on my forehead. I used a combination of two colors of model paint to get the desired color. Then I decided I wanted to be ablet to wear them so they'd actually look like his eyes. So I bought some color gels and a new set of goggles for new lenses. Now I have both options available to me.
