Undead Tako

For years my brother has praised his Quality Analyst, saying how amazing she is, how she looks out for all the guys at work and is always stating that he really needs to do something special for her, however… never gets around to it. As a QA myself I know how important it is to feel appreciated, so I took it upon myself to make her a little sumthin’ sumthin’ to make her V-day special… :3

She really likes zombies so I made her an “Undead Tako.” LOL! I’ve never made one before so I think it turned out okay – prolly nix the hair if I made one again tho!
