"That's indecent. If you're going to have a statue of a goose, you might as well put some clothes on it," remarked Batman.
It was like a light bulb went off in my head. "OH MY GOD. I NEED A STATUE OF A GOOSE, AND I NEED TO DRESS IT UP."
"I think you don't meet the minimum age requirements for owning a dress-up goose. There's a rule somewhere that if you're going to buy costumes for a statue, you must be over fifty and also own a Pomeranian named Baby."
"YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND!" (Yes, sometimes I talk in all caps.) "I wouldn't put it in Easter dresses or bumblebee outfits. That's just weird. I'm thinking about creating tiny little outfits for a resin goose as an homage to some of my favorite fictional characters."
Batman made me a deal: If I draw 10 sketches of the goose statue in different suitably awesome costumes, I could get one. And make it outfits.
I'm thinking Harry Potter, James T. Kirk, Elvis*, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wolverine, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Batman**, and Captain Jack Sparrow.
While I do not yet have ten sketches of attired geese, I can offer you this one:
Why yes. This is a goose dressed up as Harry Potter.
Next step: Convincing Batman that I need not one, but four geese statues. I could stage elaborate tableaux, including one with Harry Potter Goose, Ron Weasley Goose, Hermione Granger Goose, and the ever-popular Voldemort Goose. Plus, there could be the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-Geese.
Maybe I need a new hobby.
*while not fictional, he is awesome enough to warrant dressing up a small goose statue in his honor.
** The superhero, not my husband. Although the idea of dressing up a goose statue as my husband does have its merits--mostly that it would probably embarrass him.
