Step 18: Finishing Touches

I stuck a smile on the middle seam on the nose, and that seemed to have worked rather well (its in the last couple pictures). I just used a strip of black tape I had, but a dark marker some other method should work just as well.  This can get very very hot, so some kind of ventilation would be nice, but if not at least wear light clothing. If you have any suggestions or requests for clarification, don’t hesitate to mention it in the comments. And now, to close with a quote from Linus Torvalds, the father of Linux: “Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.”
