Default I was bored and i had shells lying around

I decided to make my own wrap and bring back 3 orphans to life. I tried something wacky with regular paint and self adhesive stars and it turned out pretty ok. The BD is an old 22" Aria, the 12" is a BIG R with different lugs and the FT is a 16" Appollo. I opted for a rail consolette instead of the ugly pearl style tom mount for added MOJO.
