Episode 80 – The Rain is Purple in Space

princeof dragons and starships – Episode 80 – The Rain is Purple in Space

CJ has decided to make the ultimate cosplay costume and order one of Irish Mike’s gi-hugic swords. Although one that throws flames is a great and all CJ has been known to burn himself on smaller things like a match. Angus decides to create a car that us propelled by lasers. His first prototype worked well. Although I don’t think the people who had their crotches burned off from the reflected laser light were too happy.
