Pinecone Cicada

Cheech 2/26/21

The Pinecone Cicada literally hit me in the middle of the night.  I must have had a bad batch of Diet Dew that night, because I had all kinds of dreams about how to shape the body, how to make the wing simple but complex, and how the fish would absolutely crush this bug.  Well, not all dreams are as good as they sounded during your slumber (kind of like the time I dreamed that I should tell my dentist he should be a professional whistler), but this one really turned out kind of exactly how I dreamed it up!  I know you can make your own fettuccini foam, but the pre stripped package is soooooo convenient.  This style of body can also be super useful on a wide array of high floating bugs so make sure to experiment!!!  Check out the video to see how to shape the body and make it extra durable.
