Kon is awesome. And he is going to be on my shoulder. I haven't quite gotten it to look right (at present, he is kind of falling to the side), but he is staying on, and it is pretty cool.

For those of you who don't know who Kon is, let me tell you:
In the anime Bleach (although also in the manga, I have not read that), there are these beings called modified souls (Kaizo Konpaku), which basically are souls that do not have actual bodies, but can inhabit bodies, and once in a body, they have some type of superpower to help them defeat Hollows, the main bad guys in Bleach. They were ordered destroyed, but one survived, and lived as a piece of gikongan candy (soul candy) that can eject a person's soul from their body and leave a fresh soul inside to take care of things (go to school, hang out with friends, etc) while the original soul does whatever else. Kurosaki Ichigo, the main character, tried out a gikongan and got the one with a modified soul in it. The mod soul could run really fast and had powerful legs. Eventually, they (ichigo and Kuchiki Rukia, the actual shinigami that has been helping Ichigo) got the mod soul out of Ichigo's body, and took the gikongan with them. Ichigo was still pissed at the soul, and when Rukia told him that he had to find a dead body or uninhabited body, he realized that he could put the gikongan in a plush, picked up a lion plush off the street, put the gikongan inside and then worked out some anger issues on the plush. Eventually, he took the mod soul in the lion-plush body back home, where he named it Kon (after Kaizo Konpaku), and Kon has been a part of the series ever since.
Anyway, using the miracle of pins, I am able to get Kon to hang on to my shoulder, and I can walk around with him on it.
