Aaallabama's example and egging-on persuaded me that I, too, needed an Emerald Courier! She arrived at my door this evening after a perfectly horrible day at work. But I opened the box and suddenly the world was bright (green) again! She's everything I expected, thanks to Kim at BalNY who patiently sent many images and answered endless questions. She's interestingly veiny, but evenly so over her whole hide. Her leather's quite thick! In fact, she's a bit thicker than my '07 Cafe Day. I can't wait to see her mature with use. She slouches gracefully and is a terrific size for all kinds of adventures! I've attached a couple of images, but the light makes her look much veinier than she is IRL. They really don't do her clear, deep green majesty justice.
