Flimsy Toad Paper is an original film by Astro. It's about five people who receive an Apocalytic message from a Toad, written on flimsy toad paper. The five are more concerned with the paper that the message is written on rather than the message itself. In this production, I play "King Toad", the toad who writes/wrote the messages.
Regarding the pictures below, single left-click on a picture to see that picture in full resolution (hi-res). It might take a little while to load the hi-res image, just be patient. After you are done viewing the picture, just 'X' the window that contains the picture and you should be returned back to THIS page.
Karen Nelson is this tremendously nice lady who does INCREDIBLE costume work. Above are some of Karen Nelson's preliminary sketches of the Toad costume. You can see the results of her hard work in the pictures below.
