Gnando has spent months working on his costume for the Lady Bug Queen’s masquerade ball. He dressed as the legendary Gnadagast the Purple once when he was 13 but never felt like he did him justice. Determined to get it right this time, he’s been watching cosplay videos on GnewTube and has poured loving detail into every aspect of this outfit.

He’s available separately or as part of the Grimblewoods Collection Volume 2.
